Anna Brix Thomsen | The Socjournal – Part 2

Sep 27th, 2010 | By Anna Brix Thomsen

We are the cultural and political elite of this world. We believe our society is the pinnacle of evolutionary development (what is better than “democracy” after all), we believe our products and services and capitalist ethics form the basis of our emerging technological utopia, in short we believe we are God’s gift to this earth, developing the lands and bringing culture and prosperity to the unwashed spiritual and scientific heathens. But is that really so? Not according to this commentator who points out that behind our subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) airs of intellectual, spiritual, cultural, and scientific superiority lies a brutal and greedy imperialist reality. Exaggeration or brutal truth? You be the judge. Imperlialism in Action
