Nowadays the most common social/political weapon is the social labels which are being thrown against political/social adversaries. Among those labels are racism, Nazism, white privilege, and many others.
The labels’ creators believe that the labels may politically kill a political adversary and bring a political victory. It may well be so, but such a victory deepens social divisiveness and makes impossible social reconciliation.
It is so because most of those people who are labeled as racists, Nazis, white-privileged, etc. are not despising the people of other races – most of the people who are labeled as racist, Nazi, white-privileged, etc. are not despising the other people – they are defending their own morality from the assault of other moralities.
What kind of morality traits the people who are labeled as racists, Nazis, white-privileged, etc. are defending?
Most probably, they are defending the following.
• All together, they are defending the Judeo-Christian Bible-guided spiritual foundation of USA being threatened by other spiritual streams such as for example the Quran-guided Islamic one; they are defending the USA’s unique democracy of a nonintrusive minimal government which is threatened by those who rely on a democratically-elected almighty all-caring government such as for example many immigrants from the poor or dictatorial countries
• The Christians, they are defending their unique Bible-guided life in all spheres of their life encounters such as for example in housing, in work-place, in education, in payers everywhere
• The Jews, they are defending their unique Torah-guided life in all spheres of their life encounters as well
• The other true Americans such as Chinese, Indians or Koreans for example, they are defending their unique traditions in the framework of the national Judeo-Christian foundation.
What to do with those US citizens who appear to be spiritual adversaries of all in the above? – To treat them as equals if they practice their unique traditions in private, and in public follow the Judeo-Christian tradition of the nation.
What to do with those who are trying to become US citizens under the refugee-status entitlement but appear to be spiritual adversaries as well? – To help them resettle in the places where their spiritual brothers live.
But mostly importantly, do not label – try to advance your spiritual vision for your country by working with the others – not by excommunicating them.
