The one thing that both the political left and right (i.e. capital) generally agree on is the inevitability and general good of globalisation.
A globalized economy means that capital has access to a global work force (both stationary and migratory) and to global markets, which translates into to increased returns on investments.
For the Left, globalisation means implementation of its ideology of a post-racial/post-European society, in which the despised (on the left, self-hating) white man (and woman) slowly but surely disappears from history into a global melting pot of a predominantly darker-skinned humanity.
Capital’s interest in the increased returns on investments that globalisation brings is readily understood, like capitalism itself, in terms of a predominantly mercenary motivation, but what about the motivation behind the Left’s ideology of a globalized, post-racial/post-European society . . . ?
Anyone who identifies with this ideology, whether consciously or not, and whether of the Left or not (both the Catholic and Anglican churches, for example, embrace much the same ideology), will, I’m sure, deny that it is an ideology at all, but simply an expression of their enlightened, “anti-racist” humanity, or of their Christian faith, which only evil “racists”, or uncharitable/unchristian souls, identifying with their own nasty European race, rather than with humanity as a whole, would oppose.
Thus, the Left and Christian churches see the creation of a global melting pot (often referred to as “multi-cultural society”), in which ethnic Europeans (the despised “white man”), presumably along with all other races or ethnic groupings, must eventually merge into a “single human race”, as a noble goal, on the way to which, the noblest of moral causes is to bring people of different races and cultures together in a multiracial/multi-ethnic/multicultural society, where, united by their common humanity, all will embrace each other to live in brotherly and sisterly harmony – amen. And if inter-ethnic relations are not as harmonious as they ought to be, that is because of an evil “racist” tendency, particularly amongst white people, to identify with their own race, rather than with multiracial society as a whole.
Which brings us to the real, largely subconscious, motivation (and moral imperative for mass immigration) of those who identify with this ideology, which is to claim the moral-high-ground for themselves in standing up to the evil “racism” which opposes it. Because, with the moral-high-ground comes POWER, social status and advantage.
In the Middle Ages the Catholic Church was sole master in wielding the power of the moral-high-ground (based on it being God’s representative on Earth and keeper of the key to Paradise), but with the decline in Christian faith, a power vacuum arose which other sources of moral-high-ground have been created to fill. “Progressives” and the Liberal Left are the modern equivalent of the medieval Catholic Church, their social status, power and privileges based on their claims to “moral superiority”: e.g. caring about others (rather than their own), “individual human rights” (over the interests of one’s tribe or nation), and of course, the ideology of “one-human-racism”, “colourblindness”, of “race-doesn’t matter”, i.e. is of no social or political importance, except to evil “racists”.
Thus, in the final analysis, the interests of both the Left and of capital in globalisation boil down to same interest in POWER (social, political or economic/monetary), along with the personal advantages that go with it.
It is not my intention to demonise the Right or the Left, or the Churches (which is tends to be their favoured tactic, because so effective), but to expose their underlying, largely subconscious, motivations, which are not nearly as noble as they would have us – and themselves – believe.
And where does this leave us? Assuming that you are giving these ideas some serious consideration.
It leaves us in urgent need of a human-evolutionary, i.e. Darwinian, approach to understanding our own human nature and the civilisation (the social, political and economic power structures) it has given rise to.
