What about the Chinese? They are technologically superior in some ways compared to Europe and have contributed many discoveries that define the modern world we live in. That's a nonwhite race, isn't it?

Eskimos aren't as technologically advanced as Europeans or Asians because they are highly specialized to survive in a harsh environment but in that regard they are superior to some of their Winterfolk counterparts. One could argue that their Culture has survived better than their southern cousins who were largely eradicated and/or assimilated.


The Chinese reached a certain point of technological achievement in the Middle Ages, but never went too further beyond it, due to their culture and philosophy. Here's James Burke to explain why.

That level of technology achievement that you are so quick to gloss over surpassed the the Summerfolk cultures around the world who were still living in the Middle Ages, for the most part, before the World Wars of the 20th Century.

The Chinese still did not pass the tech level of the European Winterfolk, whom quickly left them in the dust. I believe James Burke did a better job explaining why in the video than I ever could.

So what, who cares which of the Winterfolk were at the head of the pack? The fact is they all left the Summerfolk in the dust when it came to technological contributions and social justice that contributed to the modern world we live in.

Have you noticed how you keep championing White Winterfolk over nonwhite Winterfolk? If I didn't know better I'd almost think you're a little bit racist there, Nac.

I'm just pointing out that the majority of the non-European Winterfolk reached a certain point when it came to technological achievement, then stalled out, and that the reason involve reasons besides the climate, such as culture and religion.

The Arabs made advances in medicine (based on ancient Greek and Roman texts). But Islamic taboos about drawing the human form prevented them from making the achievements in the study of the human body like the Europeans, which led to advances in surgery and medicine.

Nacireman, your theories about "culture" and "religion" are ridiculous. Everyone knows that the achievements of a people is directly and singularly related only to the average temperature and humidity of their homeland. You sound like a lunatic with these silly ideas about "other reasons."

If that were the case the Laplanders would have conquered the world.

Eskimo is racist. Inuit is what they are called.

Its just respectful. Respect is a progressive socialist idea!

Winterfolk in Europe and Asia didn't have the same compunctions as Summerfolk in the desert who had too much time on their hands busy making up rules and establishing oppressive Caste systems, so they advanced their technology to a higher degree.

Step back from the trees and take in the forest, son. See that herd? Let's walk down and fuck them all. :-D

Enforcing respect is a progressive socialist idea because it's a form of rationalized authoritarianism. Traditionally, respect had to be earned and what is so disrespectful about misclassifying a culture anyways?

Here's a map of the Empire of Mali around the time of Musa I's rule:

You don't get to run a nation that big by basing the entire economy on slavery. Nations that size simply can't run off of one economy sourse. There was much more than that going on. Plus, most of his gold came from the fact that there was a ton of gold in the ground in that area.



And who do you think Musa forced to mine all that gold?

Didn't you have a bitch fit when someone made fun of your "religion" that worships giant aliens from an old legend? :lol:
