As explained by George Hutcheson, ‘multiculturalism’ in the sense that nations should be impartial to all peoples and cultures, is not possible. As at present, no land can ever be fully culturally neutral, and the prevalence of some cultural/ ethnic/ religious groups will always come at the expense of less significant groups. We can hypothesise about what this expense should resemble, but the necessity of an underpinning, core culture within a nation state, is indisputable. Given the context of growing momentum against age- old monuments and Australia Day, we should remember the nation’s role is not to act as some objective, dispassionate, seeker of truth. Rather, the role of a nation is to act in the interests of their own.
Likewise, while this blog has previously highlighted the post- Charlottesville witch- hunt for ‘white supremacy,’ Hutcheson sheds light on what drives this vociferous frenzy. Instead of white supremacy being manifested among those who wish to systematically oppress minorities through obvious means, white supremacy is now measured along cultural lines. In effect, this means any placing of European culture before others, represents a form of oppression which requires radical political change.
Ultimately, given Western culture and people is seen as an eternal source of oppression, the desired action is clear: that European people be driven out, subjugated, and overwhelmed wherever they live.
Only when this occurs, can the spectre of ‘white supremacy,’ be truly beradicated.
