Slavery and Imperialism in Heart of Darkness: Before then, the colonial expansion policy was a way to find new jobs for the European people and especially to defend and control the colonies for the resources they had, for example, they were the place of the raw material extraction. After the development of the industrial capitalism, near the exploitation of the raw material, stand out two needs:
One day I decided to take my wife and children for a visit to the Tolerance Museum in Los Angeles California, the end result that it was proven to us, beyond any doubt, that we are ALL prejudiced.
Today I am of the opinion that people in general are not truth seekers, since most people constantly try to fit the facts to match their wishes. Theology has been used by many; the KKK have found in the Bible reasons to hate black and Jew, the Pogroms found in the Bible reasons to commit atrocities towards the Jew, and even schemers are seen daily on TV using the Bible like the old medicine man, offering healing, signs, and wonders.
I believe that most convictions have nothing to do whatsoever with facts, the truth is, we are driven by culture and upbringing. It is these that drive the minds of the masses and not the claim that we all are truth seekers.
Tradition plants a certain state and condition in our hearts to the point of even slightly or greatly bending the facts in order to fit and justify our traditional goals. To me everyone is prejudice. If everyone really seek pure fact or even true justice, why is it then that almost every German stood behind Hitler?
Why is almost every Palestinian you speak to on the streets of the West Bank anti-Israel?
Even in the Christian communities who supposed to be "truth" seekers, and God pleasers, almost all Christian Arabs are for a Palestinian State against Israel, even with all the scripture written concerning Israel?
Could really it be that both the pro-Israel and anti-Israel are right? Does God have two different and opposite opinions? Again I say it, it is a condition of the heart. If God wanted to send us a message, he must make it simple.
God is in the business of making strange declarations, promises. He is the only one that could fulfill them, and in very strange ways as well. The world will never stop producing sinister minds. The masses with mediocre discernment are no match to professional deception.
Today, we still have plenty of mini Hitlers, and religious deception is on the rise. No wonder God warned us to be as wise as serpents and innocent as doves. And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: The Bible, Isaiah The Bible describes Israel as: Islam describes the Jewish end as: O slave of Allah!
There is a Jew hiding behind me; come and kill him. Mark Twain describing the Jews wrote: Normally speaking, the Jews should hardly be heard of, and yet we heard and hear of them again and again. They can rival any people on earth in fame, and their significance in economy and trade are in no ratio to their population.
Their contribution to the list of great names in literature, natural science, art, music, finance, medicine and profound learning is just as amazing. They have done extremely well in this world - with their hands tied behind their backs.
They could rightly be proud of themselves. The Egyptians, Babylonians and Persians came into power, filled the earth with their glory, but perished. The Greeks and Romans followed, "made a lot of noise," and then disappeared.Use the filters below to sort through all of Deerfield’s course offerings.
