Why is western traditional value is racist and self destructive?
Western Traditional value is consider as one of the most racist and self destructive ideology in the world, it believe you should hate people who are of different race, it believe in "king is god's given right", it believe in hating and killing people of different faith (its destructive nature can be see in middle east right now, that also believe in such value, with organization such as ISIL). It is a good thing modern west is in a post conservative era, therefore, abandon those evil traditional values. But, why do you think western traditional value, is so destructive and evil?
I think you are misguided with all those assumptions made in your question...at least the ones that could be understood. And while you're busy collecting your thoughts and actually learning something before opening your mouth, I suggest you take some lessons in English Grammar.
Example of what I am talking about. "Sorry, Kevin Rudd's Apology to "The stolen Generation"" Australia Prime Minister apologizing for pre modern conservative government's action against blacks
Peter - your example indicates we have moved beyond the ideology you speak of in your question - we realise that the actions of our forefathers were wrong, and we seek to rectify that...what is wrong with that?
The question state "It is a good thing modern west is in a post conservative era, therefore, abandon those evil traditional values." and the question ask "Why is western traditional value is racist and self destructive?" its ask about abandoned value
Is your post an exercise in gibberish, in the absence of critical thinking or in the absence of any historical content? Perhaps, the most destructive and evil claims come from one who holds a position of ignorance and ill conceived thought processes. Do you have any familiarity, with such a position, as evidenced by your assertions, you do.
Perhaps, you can educate us Westerners on freedom and provide, to us, your
thinking on an appropriate system of government. Certainly, that with all your condemnation of the West, you must already have a system ready to go. Perhaps, your strength is merely to criticize, to nit-pick and to point fingers and you really have nothing to back it up with. Is this who you are?
Please remeber, "King is god's given right" is the western traditional value, since fall of Roman empire. right of freedom and equality, is a new western value, emerged after 17th century. In prior freedom that contradict the king, is consider a sin.
I'm only going to answer this from the perspective of the Western country I'm most familiar with.
The U.S. may not be "perfect" but it's got one of the most diverse populations of any country. Yes there are some people who are racist or dislike others because of various things. However the vast majority of the 318 Million people are too busy working and providing for their families to be spending a lot of time on such nonsense.
We have millionaires, billionaires, and powerful politicians of both sexes and every race imaginable. This country also has people who worship just about every known religion on earth!
More people want to come here than leave here!
The United States spends billion of dollars each year on foreign aid. Whenever there is natural catastrophe around the globe we are one of the first countries lending a hand. The Peace Corps which is just (one organization) has 215,000 current and returned volunteers in more than 139 countries helping to eradicate disease, feed the hungry, and address other worldwide challenges.
Most people see what they want to see and hear what they want to hear. However if one studied the U.S. in it's totality you'd find that it's far from perfect but it's also very far from being an "evil place".
Yes, but the question is not asking about modern western society, it is asking about the traditional one. Which is very different from the modern western world, evidence by e.g. Catholic Crusaders and slavery.
It's worth looking into US foreign aid packages to see how we mandate its distribution. It's usually for weapons or political support of a regime. Rarely is it to reduce poverty or hunger
One can't undo their past. The focus has to be on "the now" and the future. It's not where you start but where you end up that matters. None of those folks who committed those atrocities are alive anymore. None of us is our ancestor's keeper.
Yes, but to understand the past is important to understand the future and others. For example, today's ISIL bare resemble to Middle Age's religion massacres. And in some places e.g. Brazil, some of those traditional values are still alive.
Western culture has historically been a backwater to the far-east. In the Chinese and Indian Kingdoms concepts of banking, republics, military organization and philosophies were first developed and then worked their way westward to be used by the Greeks and Persian-Babylonian-Medes. The only cultural concepts the west created on its own came from the Egyptians and Mesopotamians. And these were largely limited to religion, agriculture and art. Racism seems to have originated from the barbarous lighter-skinned steppe tribes of north-central Asia who constantly invaded the southern parts of Europe and Asia throughout history. This began as early as 4,000 years ago. These tribes came south into China, Mesopotamia, India, Europe and Egypt. The darker skinned and more-civilized natives were made 2nd-class citizens. Other waves occurred 3,300 yrs ago, 2,900 yrs ago, 2,600 yrs ago. These migrations to the south began to concentrate more into the west and less to the east. What did these new tribes bring with them? Polytheism and a caste system (almost identical in China, India, Middle East and Europe). Their social structure left the conquered darker-skinned folk (i.e. builders of Babylon or the Giza Pyramids) as a servile class. The last migrations of the ethnically-dominating peoples occurred only 700 yrs ago. These were the Mongols. The Mongol Empire united China, India, East Europe and SW Asia for 200 yrs.
If one can say there was a thing that degraded the west, it has been the curse of monotheism. Sooner or later in the west one god comes along who insists on his own supremacy over all others. The first attempt at this may have been the Israelite god in Egypt 3,500 yrs ago, though he was meant for only one tribal nation. Next came universal monotheism in Egypt 3,300 yrs ago. There was Ahura Mazda in the Persian Empire 2,600 yrs ago. 2,000 yrs ago, Christianity combined eastern philosophy, Greek polytheism, Greek liberty and Zoroastrianism into one all-encompassing religion loosely based on Hebrew folklore and religion. 1,400 yrs ago, Islam took what it liked from Christian and Hebrew traditions and combined them with Saracen culture like Sufism and the Sharia. Monotheism was a way the native populations tried to reassert themselves over their ruling class. In the west, you have a long tradition of ethnic tensions combined with monotheistic supremacy. When the Mongol Empire fell, Europe was cut off and set out to control world trade just as the east fell weak

In discussions here on HubPages, a common topic arises when discussing the media. In most circles, people believes what they read and see on TV. That is why we Conservatives don't trust the media for providing the truth...because we know who we are and the media is mis characterizing conservatives...

Is it racist to have a concern about immigration?A few of our left wing buddies start shouting about people being a racist when they show a concern about the levels of immigration. Is immigration a question of race or a question of numbers?
