When President Trump declared last week that three American born legislators should go back to where they came from, it was his Freudian yearnings that were on display.
Trump will have an ally in Boris Johnson who looks set to become the next British Prime Minister. Johnson is from the British Conservative Party, Trump from the American Republican Party, both of which are not happy about the growing influence in world affairs and in their own countries of the non-white races of the world.
Both parties have long been suspected of cultivating deep racist feelings against non-white folks.
The world is forever changing. Hegel may have referred to this process as dialectics but long before Hegel and Marx, ancient Hindu texts referred to the inevitability of permanent changes that lie at the heart of life.
Perhaps the saddest but most graphic evidence that forms life are born then they die and never return is the example of Alan Turing. He was a brilliant mathematician who broke many codes of the Germans to help the Allies win World War 2 (WW2).
He was gay and was legally castrated by an order of the court in 1952. He committed suicide two years later. Today, in the country where Turing was castrated, gay relationships are legal and one’s career in any human endeavours – sport, entertainment, politics, public service, business, philantropy etc– could come to an abrupt end if one makes a caustic remark against homosexuality or lesbianism. Turing’s face is now featured on the 50 pound note of the UK.
After WW2, the Caucasian race (the list included Russia, Europe, US, Canada, Australia – dominated global life). White countries formed intimate bonds with each other with Russia being the exception because of ideology.
Russian communism is now dead and when football world cup was held in Russia recently, a Russian parliamentarian advised Russian women not to get pregnant for visiting non-white fans because the children will face a racist backlash for the rest of their lives in Russia.
Today, leaders in the US, UK, Poland, Hungary, Italy, Russia are openly preaching the superiority of the Caucasian race with the Chinese people globally feeling the brunt of a rising White anger.
But the relentless presence on the map on the non-white ethnicities has changed the world forever. The face of the world as it was known in the 19th and 20th centuries is virtually dead.
Between China and India, the population is 2.3 billion citizens. The point 3 of the Chinese population is equivalent to the US population. For every doctor, the UK or the US or France produces, India put out 50. Europe, Canada and the US cannot produce the required amount of medical doctors and nurses.
Today in any New York hospital there is a visible presence of doctors from India.
The United States has a border with a non-white country, Mexico, stretching into thousands of miles. Central America has borders with Mexico and it is easy to travel from Central America to Mexico so in reality the US has a border with Central America too.
How it is possible with that kind of permanent scenario for Trump and the Republican Party to reclaim the white predominance in American demography?
If one looks at Australia, only one White country has close physical proximity to Australia. It is New Zealand with a small population. Then there is the stark reality that the birth rate among non-white people far outstrips the Caucasian world. What Trump and the Republican Party in the US and Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party in the UK are trying to do is virtually impossible.
They cannot bring back the global domination of the Caucasian race. I believe there is a superior political system in Europe, the US and Canada than what obtains in China.
But even if one bemoans lack of democracy in China, its superpower status is visible. The Chinese presence in the world reminds one when Pax Britannica was alive in the 19th century and when the US achieved international control after WW2.
It is almost certain that Trump and the Republican Party will not succeed in the all-white agenda because scientifically it is impossible. The world has changed since Pax Americana.
Friends that come back from China tell me when you go to Shanghai, Manhattan looks like the Third World. I certainly support American and European political systems and political cultures over what is inherent in the Chinese system but the world may be witnessing momentous transformations that will sweep away the wild dreams of Donald Trump and Boris Johnson.
