‘Post-modernism subverts national identity through academia’

December 23, 2019

CELEBRATE DIFFERENCE: “One of the ideas that I have promoted a lot is the problem of sameness. Sameness is a fraud, and fake. I prefer difference with mutual respect. which I means I’m different and you’re different, but I respect you as you are. Certainly men and women are different and they should respect each other. Equality does not mean being the same. You can have equal rights but having your own distinctiveness.   – Rajiv Malhotra of the Infinity Foundation.

 

DESTROYING IDENTITY: “Globalists seek to destroy the family unit. Anything that young people belong to they want to rip it apart and that is the sadness of where we are at. as a society as they are destroying things that we used to belong to make everyone a citizen of nowhere, to make everyone a nomad who does not belong to anything.” –  Conservative and Brexiteer journalist Katie Hopkins.

 

 

AN Indian commentator claims his country and the UK have been subverted within by post-modernism to strike down their national identity.

Rajiv Malhotra of the Infinity Foundation was talking about the three-pronged threat to the two countries of Cultural Marxism, globalism and militant Islamism with controversial independent and conservative-leaning journalist Katie Hopkins in a podcast about this subject.

‘MSM ignores violent protests against law change’

It took place following the decision by Vijay Modi’s VJP majority government’s decision to amend the 1955 Citizenship Act to fast-track citizenship to minorities such as Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians fleeing persecution in Muslim-majority countries Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh. This has caused widespread unrest in parts of India’s Muslim population with mobs attacking Indian police and there appears to have been widespread media blackouts of coverage of this going on.

Mr Malhotra says post-modernism has been brought about due to the failures of modernism and to get rid of “any sense of national identity and grand narrative” and he gave a copious explanation of what he believes post-modernism is and that it was promoted by intellectuals in Western universities to subvert the nation state. Key intellectual figures he singled out included Gayatri Spivak and Homi Bhahba.

‘Post-modernists re-write history in their own image’

“They (post-modernists) tried to get rid of any sense of national identity or any sense of grand narrative, whether it is that of religion, tradition. family values or nation, as long as it is a grand narrative of according to what their view is, privileges certain peoples and oppresses others.

“They’ve re-written history through this post-modernist way. It started in France and then some Indian academics in the US translated this into English, spread into this discourse and then into the English-speaking world.

“It went into India and a large number of people in the academic sense call themselves post-modernists, and their whole passion in life is to undermine the sense of Indian-ness. And I think that there is something happening in the UK as well, if I’m not mistaken.”

When Hopkins is asked by the Infinity Foundation about what globalism is and what it seeks to achieve, her response was unequivocal. At the point of writing this, it was conveying thoughts of the Beatles’ iconic single, Nowhere Man.

‘They don’t want countries to exist’

She said: “Globalists do not wish to be proud of our country. They do not wish to be proud of our flag. They no longer want countries – in fact – to exist.

“They all want us to be one global community and they want supra-national organizations to have control over us and those are the people we are up against. The globalists want to destroy any pride in the Nation State.

‘They want to make everyone a citizen of nowhere’

“Globalists seek to destroy the family unit. Anything that young people belong to they want to rip it apart and that is the sadness of where we are at. as a society as they are destroying things that we used to belong to make everyone a citizen of nowhere, to make everyone a nomad who does not belong to anything.

Mr Malhotra claims that Christian evangelists had joined forces on the political left with Islamists with various minorities to combat the Hindu majority in India and take on the nation state. whereas in the European theatre with exceptions, it was the opposite.

‘Sameness is a fraud and a fake’

Mr Malhotra said: “One of the ideas that I have promoted a lot is the problem of sameness. Sameness is a fraud, and fake. I prefer difference with mutual respect. which I means I’m different and you’re different, but I respect you as you are.

“Certainly men and women are different and they should respect each other. Equality does not mean being the same. You can have equal rights but having your own distinctiveness,

‘We should have difference with mutual respect’

“In the same way all narratives, including the spiritual, religious narratives have a distinctiveness about them and we should have difference with mutual respect. That’s my slogan rather than compared to tolerance, because tolerance is very patronizing and I want to go beyond tolerance and go to mutual respect. It is very interesting,”

Mr Malhotra, a HIndu, recalled being a guest on a progam hosted by a Pakistani lady representing her community in Dallas, Texas in the United States and she said to him that she admired his idea of “mutual respect” and that having welcomed him there, said he would the “mutual respect of the Dallas Muslim Pakistani community”.

‘When I told them what I believed, caller hung up’

“I said I’m very glad that you respect that I worship deities, that may include female dieties and I actually believe in karma and re-incarnation and I have no problem worshiping images and I am really glad that you respect all this and then the caller, hung up.”

“This fraud of ‘we respect you’ is actually a fraud, when you look at the facts, when we say I respect your faith, history and what you practice is fine for you, but I want you do the same for me.

“”I’m not here to convert you and I don’t want to convert you myself, so we have a coalition of faiths that are respecting each other with differences. I think that is a very powerful thing we should start.”
