Colonialism was the same everywhere

How Big Business and Big Government combine against the aam aadmi, the common man.

This book shows how French and British colonialism was just the same.

The same salt tax, the same Opium imports, the same killing of the local culture by colonial culture, the same replacement of traditional economy by a colonial financial system, the same exploitative landlord class, which impoverished the local people.

You could replace the French with the British and the Indian with the Viet.

The same type casting in Vietnam – “simplicity of Annamite, versus the suave sophistication of Saigonese or the ox-like toughness of the Tonkinese” like the colonial British did with Indians.

Same difference.

The colonial system has now been replaced by the Bretton Woods – and the Rest pay the West. Ho Chi Minh’s joke about British colonial rule being better than the French was just that – a joke. I dont believe that Ho Chi Minh saw grass being greener on the other side.


Western Deals At The Cost of Middle East

The Middle East in the Twentieth Century – Google Book Search

Within 18 months of the start of the WW1, the British and the French had started discussing how to ‘dispose’ the territories of the Ottoman Empire. Of course, the people of the Middle East were not consulted – as they did not matter.

Demonising communism and now Islam. Without taking the responsibility for their own actions – and further interventions, creating further instability. Like the demonisation of the Jews before and the Red Indians after, this too is having disastrous effects – in Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan.

Slave Religions That Promote Slavery

Change in Official Catholic Moral … – Google Book Search

The three ‘desert religions’ – won their first adherents amongst slaves. Yet followers of these 3 religions were active in slaving – hunt, capture, kidnap, transport, trade, smuggle slaves till the beginning of 20th century.

The on the other hand Indic religions , promoted and propagated by the ‘superior’ castes, never allowed slavery (hunt, capture, kidnap, transport, trade, smuggle slaves).

Mani Against Slavery – Church Supports Slavery?

February 23, 2008 Leave a comment

Having laid claim to an entire continent and eradicated most of its native peoples, the Christian conquerors of North America came into possession of an immense land. The rapid exploitation of its potential required a vast labour force and, until a surge in European migration in the later 19th century, this was taken against its will out of Africa, leaving the demography of that continent permanently damaged. On the southern plantations of tobacco and cotton the captive labourers enriched an elite of white landowners who themselves provided trade and custom for the northeast and the Old World. Christianity, malleable as ever, morphed not only into the self-justifying ideology of the racist southern oligarchs, but also into the uplifting faith of freedom and salvation of the slaves themselves.

As early as 340 the Church Council of Gangra (today’s Çankiri in Turkey), in reaction to rival Manicheans urging slaves to free themselves, adopted as law a slave’s “Christian obligation” to submit to the authority of the slave master “as if to God (via Did Jesus Keep Slaves? The Church, the USA and Slavery).

Mani was a Buddhist teacher, trained in India, who saw Jesus Christ’s ‘turn the other cheek’ philosophy close to Buddha and dissimilar to the vengeful Moses. He gained significant following in from China to West Asia, Middle East and Rome. Manichean thought was a significant threat to Christianity till about the 15th century, when repeated massacres of anti-Vatican populations made Buddhism extinct in Europe.

After the Nicean Conference, Mani teachings were declared as heresy – and the Church slaughtered more than 10 million people to uproot Mani’s teachings. Starting from the Indic kings of the Hittite and Mittani territories in 2000 BC to present day India, slavery (with legal slave markets and legal trade in human beings) has been entirely absent.

One More Chapter In Anglo Saxon Bloodshed

Amaresh Misras War Of Civilisations: The Road To Delhi; India AD 1857

Amaresh Misra's War Of Civilisations: The Road To Delhi; India AD 1857

In War of Civilisations: India AD 1857, Amaresh Misra, a writer and historian based in Mumbai, argues that there was an “untold holocaust” which caused the deaths of almost 10 million people over 10 years beginning in 1857. Britain was then the world’s superpower but, says Misra, came perilously close to losing its most prized possession: India.

Conventional histories have counted only 100,000 Indian soldiers who were slaughtered in savage reprisals, but none have tallied the number of rebels and civilians killed by British forces desperate to impose order, claims Misra. (via India’s Secret History: ‘a Holocaust, One Where Millions Disappeared…’).

Let’s do the numbers

10 million people is 1 crore people – and India’s population in 1857 was about 12-15 crores. That is equivalent to killing 8 crore people today. Equal to the entire population Britain today. Another sorry chapter in bloody history of wealth built on flesh, bones and corpses. Post colonial Governments in Malaysia, Kenya and India have ignored the cover-up of the millions killed by the colonial rulers – in the Malayan operations, Mau Mau operations in Kenya or the 1857 War in India.

This is one more incident in a long line of ‘scorched earth’ incidents in history. Amaresh Misra – a film critic and journalist, who was moved sufficiently to research for a few years, because, “Since 1957, no Indian has written a comprehensive account of the Revolt. Indian historians have done a limited work”. His work, based on some excellent research and insights, is let down by his referrals, to partisan political interpretations and Western -Marxist political frameworks.

King Leopold’s Slavery

February 13, 2008 2 comments

BBC – History – Slavery and the ‘Scramble for Africa’

King Leopold sold his ‘personal colonies’ to the Belgian state for GBP3.8 million. Finally, this massacre stopped only when the Belgians realised that there might not be people left for ‘forced’ labour.

The Belgian Government should be put up on Nuremberg type trial.

Another form of population control by the West!
