The average person has no idea that their thoughts and perceptions about reality are shaped for them by hidden elites and their minions in the media and academia. John Maynard Keynes captured this when he wrote,
“The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed, the world is ruled by little else. Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually slaves of some defunct economist.” – John Maynard Keynes
Moreover, they don’t appreciate and understand the decades of effort, debate, planning and scheming that precede the societal unveiling of the latest well-coordinated and lavishly financed “progressive” attack on God, nature and man.
So, for example, while the average person goes about their daily business and is still coming to terms with abortion on demand, homosexual marriage, and the push to normalize transgenderism, the elites are busily debating and crafting the next salvo in their fight against reality. Hence, the emerging use of the “+” placeholder in LGBTQ+. Put more concretely, some “progressives” want to follow the Q with an I for incest, others want to follow the Q with a P for pedophilia, while still others want to follow the Q with a B for bestiality. Apparently, some in the “progressive” camp want to take a break from sexual perversion and follow the Q with another T which stands for transracialism.
With that in mind, take a look at the abstract of a recently published academic article in the feminist journal Hypatia, “In defense of transracialism“:
Former NAACP chapter head Rachel Dolezal’s attempted transition from the white to the black race occasioned heated controversy. Her story gained notoriety at the same time that Caitlyn Jenner graced the cover of Vanity Fair, signaling a growing acceptance of transgender identity. Yet criticisms of Dolezal for misrepresenting her birth race indicate a widespread social perception that it is neither possible nor acceptable to change one’s race in the way it might be to change one’s sex. Considerations that support transgenderism seem to apply equally to transracialism. Although Dolezal herself may or may not represent a genuine case of a transracial person, her story and the public reaction to it serve helpful illustrative purposes.
Now, it is my understanding that the author of the article, Rebecca Tuvel, is getting quite a bit of flack from fellow progressives for her article, despite the obvious logical connection between transgenderism and transracialism. This is similar to the controversy that surrounded the publication of an academic article from a few years back that argued for after-birth abortion (infanticide) on the grounds that it was a logical extension of pre-birth abortion.
It will certainly be interesting to see what the future holds for transracial ideology, but that future will be decided by the elites who pay the salaries and fund the research of the “progressive” professoriate, not by the professors themselves.
In closing, the elites and their minions often disagree about how to best attack God and nature’s plan for creation – at least during the planning stages. But where there is unwavering agreement is that God and nature’s plan must be attacked and that once the attack is joined all must maintain ranks. Put concisely, the elites agree that truth must be attacked but how they go about lying is sometimes open to debate – at least until the lying starts. And by the time the latest “progressive” attack registers on the radar of the masses, the battle has been all but won by the forces of darkness – at least that’s what appears to be the case in purely human terms.
