The following is the second of a series of articles by Dr John K. Press outlining a 'culturist' policy platform. (First article here.)
Culturism (cÇ”l-chÉ™r-Çz-É™m) n. The philosophy, art, and science that values, promotes and protects majority cultures.
Culturist (cÇ”l-chÉ™r-Çst) n. 1. An advocate of culturism. 2. One who engages in the arts or sciences of managing and protecting majority cultures. 3. Adj. Of or pertaining to culturism, culturists or culturist policy.
Culturist foreign policy in a nutshell: bomb those who hurt us (with an intent to inflict pain); aid our friends, not our enemies; and otherwise mind our own business.
Globalists think the world agrees on fundamental values and thus all people can be united: Multiculturalists promote that idea domestically. Culturists believe that cultures disagree on, and fight over, values and territory.
Get out of Iraq and Afghanistan
The US is officially in Iraq and Afghanistan to turn them into western-style progressive democracies with freedom of speech, separation of church and state, women's rights, etc. However, Islamic nations reject these values; cultural diversity dooms these nation-building missions.
From a culturist perspective, what Muslims do to each other is not our business. If China does not have a democracy or gay rights, that is not our business. Our culturist job is to protect our own western traditional majority culture, not to go bankrupt undermining other nations' sovereignty.
Bomb when you bomb
That is not to say that culturist foreign policy is strictly isolationist. If a nation attacks us, we should bomb so heavily and hard that they will remember it for a long time. Then, the next time a terrorist group tries to set up camp in their nation, the country might put some effort into routing them out.
Iran cannot have the Bomb
Because they are our enemy, Iran cannot have nuclear weapons. If they do not dismantle their means of production voluntarily, we should use military force to eradicate their bomb-making potential. After that, we should leave Iran immediately: no trying to make them a democracy, no rebuilding aid.
Reject non-Western asylum seekers
The above policies can only lead to domestic terrorism via Islamic sympathizers in our western nations. Multiculturalists tell us that Muslims are also western and they share our values: neither is true. We must stop all Islamic immigration into the West now.
We have sides in international battles
Our globalist western leaders see themselves as neutral mediators in the Israeli/ Palestinian talks (and those with Muslims in India, Thailand, Nigeria, etc.). We are not neutral! Where practical, we must check Islamic expansion. We should not be asking our allies to make concessions to our enemies.
Our first duty is to protect ourselves
If we fall, neither China nor Iran will promote 'human rights.' Such rights are, in fact, only western rights. Therefore, if we want to protect human rights, we must avoid bankruptcy. We should drastically reduce foreign aid and give zero dollars to non-western nations.
