You should be trying to turn the US into an anti-Western country.

Even though the "United States" are culturally influenced by "woke" people today, their foreign policies still "Manifest Destiny" and "Western" in nature. They not stop to threaten us with sanctions if we change our current "western" economic system into a new one, which more less-oppressing or even more solving the problem than it.

That's why the Africans today more side with China rather than the "tolerant" West. The China give us "infrastructure economic cooperation" whereas "The West" give us debt and deceptive economic cooperation.

We hardly to trust the "leftism" of the West right now. Even they through online media try to do anything to support regime change in Iran after their authorities murder a woman who release her hijab on Iranian's public. Which means support Iran to change their Islamic ideology into a new one which possibly absorb the Western's pervert Freemason leftism (liberalism)

Westerners are the biggest hypocrites, they think that because they use nice sounding phrases and buzzwords that there actually good people. I'm not sure if they actually believe the B.S that there spewing or there just in love with the sound of there own voices. Anyway actions speak louder then words, and based on your actions you westerners have been exposed as the demons that you are.

But, it will more better if Kwame Nkrumah use the name of his international solidarity proposal with name which not originated from westerners's name-calling. Like "Pan-Igbo International" for example. Which name was to honor Igbo united empire on the past hudreds of years ago before European colonialism

Quote
New York University fired Prof. Maitland Jones Jr. this summer after 82 of the 350 students in his organic chemistry class signed a petition expressing concern about the effectiveness of his teaching. Large numbers of students were receiving low scores on exams, and some had withdrawn from the course.

The stakes were high. Organic chemistry is typically taught as a weed-out class, an introductory-level class that is designed to be so difficult or so intensive that only the most serious students can advance — in this case, to medical school.
...
Instead, universities should focus on the broader goal of teaching for equity and with empathy, which means ensuring that students get the support they need to learn and succeed, without petitions and even without having to ask.

Our enemies are defending Jones:



If you ask me, it's not an issue of whether organic chemistry should or should not be a pre-med requirement, but that the uniquely Western subject of organic chemistry should not be taught at all. Imagine how many of the problems in:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/true-left-vs-right/western-civilization-is-a-health-hazard/

would not exist if only organic chemistry had never existed!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organic_chemistry#History

Quote
A crucial breakthrough for organic chemistry was the concept of chemical structure, developed independently in 1858 by both Friedrich August Kekulé and Archibald Scott Couper.[7] Both researchers suggested that tetravalent carbon atoms could link to each other to form a carbon lattice, and that the detailed patterns of atomic bonding could be discerned by skillful interpretations of appropriate chemical reactions.[8]
...
The discovery of petroleum and the development of the petrochemical industry spurred the development of organic chemistry. Converting individual petroleum compounds into types of compounds by various chemical processes led to organic reactions enabling a broad range of industrial and commercial products including, among (many) others: plastics, synthetic rubber, organic adhesives, and various property-modifying petroleum additives and catalysts.

This is what Western civilization looks like on the molecular scale:













Indeed, all organic chemists should be prohibited from reproducing.

One of the best headlines of the year:

https://www.renews.co.nz/thou-art-boring-as-****-is-shakespeare-relevant-to-nz-in-2022/

Quote
Every year in high school, Sasha Hutchinson had to read William Shakespeare’s plays - and she never understood why.

It just didn’t seem relevant, she said.

“Now I’m prioritising reading Māori authors more often as we never got to study any NZ literature at school.”

There’s no requirement for schools to teach Shakespeare but when Re:News asked its followers about whether they learnt Shakespeare at school, almost everyone replied that it was part of their English course at high school.

But is learning about Shakespeare relevant in Aotearoa in 2022?

After 10 years of providing funding to the New Zealand secondary school Shakespeare Festival commonly known as Sheilah Winn, Creative New Zealand (CNZ) has decided not to fund the festival in their 2023 to 2025 Kahikatea funding round.

A CNZ advisory board member wrote in a statement that the festival didn’t receive funding because it focuses on “a canon of imperialism”.

Another funding assessor wrote: “I question whether a singular focus on an Elizabethan playwright is most relevant for a decolonising Aotearoa in the 2020s and beyond.”
...
“We basically did one of his plays every year at high school. His work is important but that level of revisiting is overkill,” one person wrote.

Others thought the focus on Shakespeare was at the sake of work that highlighted the culture, issues and history of Aotearoa.

“I love Shakespeare, but the fact that it is held as the epitome of literary intellectuality in New Zealand is coloniality at its finest,” one person told Re:News.

Decolonising art
...
Shakespeare and colonisation are “bedfellows” and British colonisers used it as an example of how people should act and what they should think of as high art, Hyland said.

“It would be a massive, awesome act of decolonisation if we discovered our own stories first and discovered Shakespeare afterwards,” Hyland said.

“Wouldn't it be great if young people could come home and say, ‘Hey, Mum, Dad, I just found this story and it's really similar to Hinemoana and Tūtānekai. It's Romeo and Juliet’.”

Not only should Aotearoa discover its own stories first, but it should also discover the stories of nearby fellow victims of Western colonialism.

And also discover the evilness of Western philosophy, art, and way of life so they no need to preserve it but burn all of it. Only the liberals who still need to preserve all kinds of teachings and worldview for the sake of pluralism. Even though there's  a worldview which bad for all of us

No. We need to show it so that people can study how it is evil. This is why we have topics like this one:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/true-left-vs-right/western-civilization-is-ugly-48/

Also we need to keep finding out who in each generation likes this stuff so that they can be prohibited from reproducing.

In response to this article:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/rishi-sunak-volodymyr-zelensky-why-110945034.html

Quote
at 5ft 7in, two inches smaller than the average man, Rishi Sunak is physically diminutive.

the following woke comment is a simple decolonizing action that we should repeat more often:

Quote
This author seems to be thinking in European standard only, most other people in the world are not tall. Especially Indians.
...
Really inappropriate article from somebody who thinks that only kinds of humans that exist are the kind of people that exist in western Europe.

This Eurocentric bias appears frequently, therefore needs to be challenged every time we come across it:

https://thebonescience.com/blogs/journal/average-height-around-the-world

According to the World Health Organization's (WHO) growth reference standards, the expected average height of a woman should be 163 cm (5 ft 4.3 in) and the average height of a man 176.5 cm (5 ft 9.5 in).

However, the actual global average height of a woman is only 159.5 cm (5 ft 2.8 in) and the average height of a man is 171 cm (5 ft 7.3 in).
