Default Intersectionality - 03-09-2020, 09:20 AM

Something happened around 2012. In another thread [linked (RIGHT)] a similar upward trend was reported for mentions of "White Privilege" in the news media. The outcome in that case was a lessening of sympathy among liberals for the majority of welfare recipients. Why? Because most people living in poverty also experience white privilege.

The liberal mind is a socialist mind. It thrives on economic theory and deconstructed models of society. An individual becomes fragmented and can be identified using multiple criteria at the same time. The head of a Christian home for example would not be seen as a whole person but as each facet of his identity in isolation, at different times, by different people using different assessment criteria. At work he would be an employer ONLY. Perhaps he owns a small business, or a large one, or is a contractor or professional consultant. In that capacity he is exploiting those whom he employs to bloat himself at their expense and the proof is that he has more money than they do. Then when he goes to buy a car, maybe an off-road vehicle for fishing trips, a different criterion is applied. Now he's a climate cannibal ONLY, until he goes home of course when he immediately becomes HITLER. Wives in this model are sex traitors, unless belonging to an ethnic minority in which case they're custodians of other ways of knowing, more often described as starving.

This is how they see the world. So what happened in 2012? To address that we need to look back a few years. One area would be education and new perspectives offered through novel degree courses. A good example would be ethnobotany. Someone could identify as a shaman and as a doctor and as a sociologist all at the same time (although at any one time only a single identity would be manifest) then awake to the fact of discrimination from Big Pharma when you were being a shaman, from witches when you were being a doctor and from macroeconomics when being a sociologist. You would be at the intersection of three railway lines with three trains of discrimination crashing in your head.

Another example how intersectionality prevents a coherent grasp of reality pops up in some of those gab-fests where participants change hats every five minutes, many of them being mutually exclusive. We'd need to look a few years before 2012 and I've taken a five- or six-year interval; that allows for the movers and shakers to get their Masters in ethnobotany, a solid intake of whatever the shaman's soup du jour happened to be (something unpronounceable, probably a made-up word like Ibgtbernayantheauascajj) and the dissociative disorder which most of them seem to have. Not the participants themselves, however: they know exactly what they're doing. We will be looking at Strategic Foresight Group's third international Roundtable on CONSTRUCTING PEACE, DECONSTRUCTING TERROR. It starts off well:
Quote:
Restructuring Relations between the Western and Islamic Countries
European Parliament, Brussels, 26-27 November 2006


Co-hosted by
Strategic Foresight Group and the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe

Endorsed by the League of Arab States

Strategic Foresight Group and the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe in the European Parliament convened the Third International Roundtable on Constructing Peace, Deconstructing terror held at the European Parliament, Brussels, on 26-27 November 2006. The Roundtable was endorsed by the League of Arab States. It engaged important public institutions from the Western and Islamic worlds.
In the same way as discrimination could be perceived by our earlier shaman/doctor/sociologist on multiple fronts, here too could affront be taken in different ways according to which hat was being worn. Have the objectives of this gab-fest emerged to a greater or lesser degree than expected since 2006?
Quote:
About 40 leaders from Europe, Asia and the Middle East participated in the Roundtable. They included serving cabinet ministers, former ministers, leaders of parliamentary groups, special envoys of the heads of multilateral organisations and directors of important institutions. The distinguished group recommended an Inclusive Semi Permanent Conference on Peace in the Middle East, Western Islamic Dialogue and Engagement Initiative, International Historical Study Group on Common Human Civilisation, Arab Islamic Renaissance Initiative and the promotion of the Compact of Dialogue-Democracy-Development.
A participant could be, say, the director of an important institution but also a raving lunatic, an arms dealer and a communist all at the same time. Multiple statements made by one person, speaking in different capacities, will often cancel one another out resulting in nothing having been said at all, as the speaker would know very well. Different statements made to different audiences would raise expectations with no chance of becoming reality. After a while this would become apparent to even the most bubble-headed socialist, quite possibly having completed an ethnobotany degree in the meantime, bringing us to 2012 and the sudden upsurge of "intersectionality" in news media. The director + lunatic/arms dealer/communist I imagined could attract criticism in one capacity while simultaneously being condemned by someone else in another. The subjective experience would be intersectional denunciation, from multiple sources, for different reasons.

That's for a fragmented director. It's unlikely at the Roundtable there'd be many of those, other than observers taking their splinter of good news home and going into meltdown when the inevitable happened. Somehow they'd need to accommodate their woe and right on cue we're told how multiple identities attract multiple perceptions of discrimination.

Really what they're seeing are multiple ways in which they've been deceived. This is what it's like living without Christ Jesus.
I Thessalonians 5:22-24 Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

Default An Additional Example - 03-09-2020, 11:47 AM

To save space I didn't include this in my last post. For intersectional discrimination to be perceived it's necessary for an individual to become fragmented. Otherwise they'd just say, "so-and-so thinks I'm a running dog pig swine imperialist toady – so what? If that's what they think they're wrong!" and get on with life not caring what so-and-so thought. Even if they were right and I am the fascist hyaena of imperialism it really wouldn't bother me. That is because I'm an integrated individual. Jesus said:

Luke 11:35-36 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

How is the deconstruction of personal integrity achieved? Intersectional disempowerment requires multiple forms of injustice to be defined so they can all work at the same time. Christians are whole and don't have this problem but for someone who defines themselves as 1) an ethnic minority 2) gender fluid and 3) Elvis, three streams of oppression can be experienced all at the same time. One way to achieve that is through education. Just to show an example, here is something from a book for children which is not The Bible.

TEACHING Children PHILOSOPHY

The Shaman's Apprentice

For thousands of years, in the jungles of the Amazon, shamans have passed their wisdom of the medicinal values of rain forest plants from one generation to the next. The Shaman's Apprentice tells the story of a Tirio Indian boy who dreams of one day being the tribal shaman, and how he and his people learn the importance of their own knowledge about the healing properties of the rain forest.

Guidelines for Philosophical Discussion

The Shaman's Apprentice..is a story of a little boy in a native village. Mark J. Plotkin is an ethnobotanist who worked in the village of Kwamala with the Tirio people. The Tirio people live in the northeast region of the Amazon rain forest. The village of the Tirio people is along the Brazil-Suriname border. They are an agrarian culture which utilizes the slash and burn farming method. They are also hunters and fishers. Currently, the Tirio people are being threatened by the gold miners and foreign loggers who have come into the area in recent years. Mark J. Plotki was inspired by the medical practices of the Tirio people which involve the use of medicinal plants by the tribe shaman.

In the the book, the boy's name is Kamanya, and he lives in the village of Kwamala. When Kamanya becomes sick, it is the Shaman who heals him. Soon a person from the next village comes to be cured by the Shaman, but he dies. When white people come to the village of Kwamala they bring pills which cure the diseases that the Shaman can not. This causes doubt among the Tirio people about the strength of their medicine and religious beliefs. Ultimately, they regain faith when an ethnobotinist points out that the medicine contained in the pills came from the rain forest itself.

The Shaman's Apprentice addresses epistemological issues. Epistemology is the branch of philosophy which studies issues about the nature of knowledge. The Epistemological issues raised in The Shaman's Apprentice concern what we know - and how we know what we know. The book also addresses metaphysical issues. Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy which deals with the nature of the world and covers such issues as theories of mind, religion, free will, time, and even scientific issues. The Shaman's Apprentice addresses metaphysical issues such as belief in nature vs. man and differences in the perception of medicinal cures. Ultimately, this is a book about the perseverence of a culture even as a people from outside this culture attempt to change it.

Questions for Philosophical Discussion.

Sickness and Health

When we get sick we go to see a doctor, but Kamanya saw a shaman.

. .1. Would you go to a shaman? Why or why not?
. .2. What makes something a medicine?
. .3. Can medicine come from plants?
. .4. Do you know of any medicinal plants?


Exploration and Religion

. .1. What are missionaries?
. .2. What did the missionaries overlook when they claimed they were bringing religion to the village?
. .3. Is it good that missionaries shared their religion with the Tirio village?
. .4. Can there be more than one God?
. .5. Is a religon based on one god better than one based on multiple or many gods?
. .6. Is the missionaries religon better than the religion of the Tirio people?


Wisdom and Shamanism

. .1. It is said that the shaman is wise. Do you think the shaman is wise?
. .2. Do you know anyone who is wise?
. .3. When attending school you learn lots of things. Does this mean that you are wise?
. .4. Is wisdom the same thing as knowledge?
. .5. What is the difference between knowledge and wisdom?
. .6. Is it important for the book of medicinal plants to be translated into Tirio for future shamans?
The combination of wanting to be a shaman..bearing in mind what shamans actually do..with ideas about knowledge, wisdom and missionaries clearly opposed to what The Bible teaches and also opposed to what is presumably taught in schools lays the groundwork for intersectional umbrage to be taken later in life. The best example of that must be in the final question. If the Tirio people have been able to preserve their pharmacopoeia for millions of years carrying it with them as they traipsed across the tundra to reach where they are now, preserving the wisdom of the ages and adding to it occasionally as new "medicinal" plants were discovered and peddled to the stupid Europeans when they arrived with their "knowledge" (but presumably no wisdom) why do they now all of a sudden need a book to be written? I strongly doubt that the appetite for vivid hallucinogenics is going to die out any time soon so all the shamans need to do is keep producing it. They'll be on the gravy train for life.

Intersectional deprivation is not something endorsed in The Bible. Either one is whole or one is ruined. And listening to the wailings of multiple identities being shortchanged (as they see it) suggests to me that they are not whole.

Matthew 6:23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

Default Re: Intersectionality - 03-09-2020, 04:55 PM

I've always thought of intersections as examples of people being orderly and co-operative with a minimum of coercion.



Spoiled rich kids don't get how unusual this is. In the stateless, pre-capitalist world of prehistory, meeting a stranger on a trail was a kill-or-be-killed situation. It took a lot of "old dead white men" to turn intersections from deathtraps to tourist-traps.

Only a leftist mind could look at the miracle of modern social technology that is an intersection, and think "this is a place where I can be hit from multiple directions".

Any other mind looks at it and says "if getting hit is a problem for you, maybe you should stop standing in the road and getting in everybody's way."
