So does this absolve Western man from his cultural misdeeds. Of course not. Are all Westerners or Europeans to blame or just the ruling class? Well because we are talking about worldview and culture, all Europeans are to blame because they all shared the same worldview, the one that developed from the Indo-European psyche and reinforced by Roman Christianity. The difference is the masses were never afforded the opportunity or lacked the means to execute their wills, like the rich or privileged were, but if given the chance they would have acted identically. Thus, it is not a question of class but one of opportunity. And eventually the fruit of “overseas exploitation” benefited the various social classes of Europe as they all experienced a rise in the standard of living and life expectancy. Europeans bare a collective responsibility and continue to this day to benefit from White supremacy. Their culture developed from a distorted view of the world. Now as to why they saw the world the way they do--your theory is as good as mines. Is it biochemical, environmental, both? It doesn't really matter. What matters is that the world will not change, and Isfet, will continue to reign, as long as they does. Maybe the "white man is cursed--he cannot change."
For those folks who have forgotten Set's punishment in the Kemetic cosmology, it was not banishment, ostracism, or death, but Set became the horse-power or impetus behind goodness--he propelled the Sun (symbol of life force or an external expression of Sa (Nyama, N/um, Chi, Prana, Ki) across the sky. In other words, every things has its place, and as long as they stay in their place, balanced is maintained. I have made this argument about balance before and it demonstrates the weaken in the Western or any philosophical approach.
For example, a philosopher might argue that the world is locked in a struggle between “good” and “evil.” A person using Maat as their basis for thinking, using the self (mind-emotion-body complex) as a microcosm of the world or existence would determine that the philosopher's ideas are inaccurate (for several reasons, which I will not addressed in this article). That there is neither an internal battle within nor an external battle outside the body, i.e., in the world, between good and evil. That the body, life Nature, has both forces that together act reciprocally to sustain health, to sustain life. In the case of bacteria and cholesterol, we know the “good” ones outnumber the “bad,” and that one's health is directly related to maintaining their inherent balance, Maat by another name. Therefore it is maintaining balance that is the key to existence. Consequently, balance becomes the organizing principle in human life in the Afrikan "cosmologist's" eyes and not winning some supposed battle of “good” over “evil,” the likely objective of the philosopher.
Though it can be argued that Western man has developed a number of technologies that have the capacity to do good, to serve humanity, and enhance living, given the historical record of the West, it is unlikely that humanity will receive the potential blessings from these technologies. Why, for two reasons: One, the West does not develop human beings. It accepts that people are animals, and has failed to create techniques designed to create human beings. Disciplines that would allow humans to become and grow. Instead it encourages indiscipline and rarely hold "individuals" accountable for their behaviors. People don't grow in the West, they simply think they do because they have gained more information (as opposed to knowledge) and possessions. One of the simplest indices of the growth of the person or society into human beings is the cultivation of the habit of sharing, not the every man for himself, dog-eat-dog mentality of the West. Afrikan communalism's emphasis on sharing has been attacked as stifling individualism, while Western individualism, a veil for selfish egocentrism has been praised. Two, the West has not concept of balance or harmony. In it human relationships, and its approach to everything, conquest is the paramount value. The West has enough science, what the world needs now, is its proper application. Without a sense of balance and harmony, i.e. Maat, the West will destroy itself and the rest of us!
Viewing Western man from a traditional Afrikan perspective and historiographical experience, he is intolerant, dangerous, disrespectful to himself, his mother, his ancestors, shows little or no regard for his children; one whose lack of character development disqualifies him from exercising any kind of responsible authority. And it seems certain he will continue down this supposed path of progress, while genocides, epidemics, disease and sickness, and warfare spiral out of control. Nature appears to be turning on the planet as global warming, desertification, and others disasters confront us. As a result of the conditions confronting humanity, especially Afrikan people who suffer disproportionately from the various ills, it is time Afrikan people reject his leadership. This means Afrikan people must renew and champion an Afrikan-engineered harmonizing worldview inclusive of the Maatian values of truth, justice, righteousness, and reciprocity. Not Shari'ah law, Judaic law, Roman law, or any oppressor-concocted law. We must return to the science of the soul, formulating cosmologies based on imagination, intuition, reason, and empirical information, and validation through not only mechanical technologies but also through the use of trance states. We must approach our worldview with the precise of surgeons, making sure to replicate and corroborate our findings. We must be aware of those elements that will try and reduce our work to mean wanton, mysterious, phantasmic flights into fantasy, witchcraft, superstition, spells, nihilism, debauchery, buggery, wickedness and spiritual mischief. Our world is one of reclamation and restoration. And once again, the self order must again be the basis of the world order and we must see the world order in the self.
As I recently stated, we have become so enamored with foreign ideas (religions and philosophies) that we are afraid to look critically at what we had. And when I say what we had I am talking about the foundation of Afrikan thought, that we need to rebuild. Our challenge is to regain our worldview this means waging an ongoing struggle against Western, Eastern, or any system of thought that is anti-Afrikan. It is time to return to our modality, our way of viewing the world, explaining reality.
