uniface, I was quite enjoying your article although, all the while reading it, hovering at the back of my mind, like the spectre at the feast, was a nagging doubt about was what exactly your agenda for posting it. But then, eureka! All was revealed when I got this to this bit:
As far as I can tell, Hannah Arendt did not consider the problems of pathology and how it operates in society as a corrupting element, nor did she consider the factor that Judaism and its offspring, Christianity and Islam, could be the carriers of the disease of totalitarianism.
So I have left the following comment:
I'm not a Christian or a Jew, but do you not understand how this statement either betrays an incredible ignorance of human history or more sinisterly, an agenda?
Do you really believe that totalitarianism begins and ends with Hebraic derived religions? What about the Sumerians, who used a slave culture to cater for their needs? What about the Babylonians, who wiped out the Sumerians? What about the Akkadians, the Persians, the Hittities, the Greeks ... I could go on ... all of these were racial groupings that had a psychopathic belief system that they had a divine right to conquer others, and bring them under their jackboot.
Fast forward to today .. .and what about the Far Eastern races? Do you not think the Chinese regime is a totalitarian one? And what about Burma, North Korea and Tibet? Whole nations brought to heel under an autocratic rulership.
I probably haven't included everyone, but this is just a sample to show you that if you're going to blame the Jews, Christians and Moslems, then you're no better than those you criticise for not facing reality and instead preferring to live on fairy stories and use others as scapegoats when reality threatens to intervene.
