Miscegenation ideologues seek to create a new man, through the mixing of all races. The Soviets also tried to create a new Soviet man. They miserably failed. What the racial miscegenationists have in common with the communists is that they seek to create a new man, and the conviction there is a strong moral obligation for doing so. At the basis of these beliefs stands the idea that man can and should be engineered.
The artificial creation of a new man should, according to their line of reasoning, inevitably result in a better man. It is theoretically possible to improve mankind through selective breeding and philosophical or moral education, but that is not what we are talking about here. Miscegenationists believe that mixing is necessarily good, i.e. it would inevitably lead to better offspring. They often make an attempt to back up this crude claim with biology, while insinuating their position is ‘educated’. Therefore, they conclude, all races should be mixed, and this would result in a better humanity. This naive, yet dangerously radical, way of reasoning is shockingly common in the West:
Count Coudenhove-Kalergi, the philosophical founder of the European Union, summarises the miscegenationist idea as follows:
The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals. …
Instead of destroying European Jewry, Europe, against its own will, refined and educated this people into a future leader-nation through this artificial selection process. No wonder that this people, that escaped Ghetto-Prison, developed into a spiritual nobility of Europe. Therefore a gracious Providence provided Europe with a new race of nobility by the Grace of Spirit. This happened at the moment when Europe’s feudal aristocracy became dilapidated, and thanks to Jewish emancipation.
The miscegenationists, who are usually liberals today, have an extremely simple, yet scary plan for humanity: the complete genetic destruction of racial diversity which is widespread across the planet today. They aspire to achieve this genetic engineering project by means of propaganda, for instance. The shocking methods used to create this new post-racial man are very similar to those historically used by the Russian communists to create a Soviet man. What is so problematic about this extreme ideology is the lack of respect for the historical fact that human racial groups have had no significant sexual contact for countless successive generations, and that they wish to do away with this historical reality without any regard for the consequences.
The radical change that is desired by these extremists is disastrous for the future of the racial diversity of mankind that has been handed down to us as a result of a long and gradual process of continuous evolution, and it is nothing short of an unprecented genocide, which these extremists may even explicitly defend as a ‘necessary evil’ in order to achieve their ‘moral goal’. To be honest, this deeply frightens me.
Social harmony, which is the essence of Chinese traditional philosophy, is an alternative to the aggressive and increasingly violent, total eradication of human races; it is a humane alternative to the aggressive, violent change that extremists advocate. This philosophical alternative to the shocking scenario that bellicose miscegenationists see as ‘inevitable change’ will cultivate respect, understanding and empathy. Social harmony creates the ideal, peaceful environment for a non-forced development of human virtues.
