Moe of Indy wrote:
Many of Hegel’s critics, from Popper to Bernasconi, have argued that the philosopher provided a basis for modern racism and established a role for race in history by correlating a hierarchy of civilisations to a hierarchy of races, notably in the Encyclopaedia and the History of Philosophy. Hegel has thus frequently been labelled a ‘racist’.
Popper, for instance, sees in Hegel the founder of German racialism and discerns a close connection between Hegel and racialist Nazism, arguing effectively, as Kaufmann puts it, that “the Nazis got their racism from Hegel”(Kaufmann, W., 1996: 102). As far as Popper is concerned,“Hegel + Haeckel is the formula for modern racism”(Popper, K., 1950: 252).[1] Bernasconi regards Hegel as “a precursor of the mid-nineteenth century tendency to construct philosophies of history organised around the concept of race, such as we find in Robert Knox and Gobineau”(Bernasconi, R., 2003). Knox believed that ‘race is everything’, so that literature, science, art — in a word, civilization — depends on it. Similarly, Gobineau, who is often regarded as the ‘father of modern racism’, used anthropology, linguistics and history to formulate a theory in which race virtually explained everything in the human experience. The decisive events of history, he argued in his Essay on the Inequality of Human Races (1854), are determined by the ‘iron law of race’, so that human destiny is decreed by nature and expressed in race. Gobineau also favoured racial purity, suggesting that there should be no crossbreeding between races in order to maintain survival. By linking Hegel’s name with that of Knox and Gobineau, Bernasconi clearly implies that the philosopher was responsible for contributing to a distorted perception of race and thus helped to make racism more respectable.

How would I know if this is the real Carl or some deficient "look-a-like". No, I can read and comprehend, but why read through some obscure, rampling writing, trying to make the whole world believe that everything is racist, or has racist beginnings.
If it is the view of the writer that everything is racist, or based on racism, then I go into: I don't give a rat's asz mode.

The point is that even the smartest of people sometimes rationalize prejudice, like that example of the German philosophers. Their scientific ideas brought the Holocaust.

It's a beautiful thing when a masculine and studly black man takes a pretty and feminine white woman to pound town.

Simply beautiful.

Just the way God intended.

You would surely go hungry if everyone like me just up and left. Who is going to grow your food? Who is going to raise the cattle? Who is going to defend your right to be an idiot? Who is going to uphold the Constitution so you can mangle it? You see, unlike the opposite side of the coin, we would get along just fine if you were to go away. Unfortunately, your little apartment doesn't produce anything except sometimes undecipherable babble.

With race or a derivitive mentioned about 18 timesin the article you were responding to. Eugenics has been around for a while, with certain European nations utilizeing the practice in the 1930's and 40's starting with the infirm, and mentally ill. Later this expanded to the Jewish nation, Gypsys, homosexuals, and political dissidants. Someone on this forem suggested that it would be applied to blacks if they lived there. Possibly, Was it the 1936 Olympics that Jesse Owens won a race over an arian, severly disappointing Adolph?(Jesse Owens was black.)

Lookie lookie at the all American slinging sh1t. Yea, I see all your friends jumping on here to agree with you and defend pompus ass. I know the difference between you and others that post in your name.Anybody can see you didn't start this thread but damn if you didn't jump all over it. It's easy to see you have to have the last word. Your ego just can't let it go.
