That is right. Water is a symbol for racial survival. We all want pure water. There is a desire for the purity of water because it aids us in our survival. Humans naturally desire purity, even when they are race-mixed themselves. We do not condemn people as water purists for desiring pure water. Yet, those who desire a pure race are denounced as racial purists. This is a sorry state of affairs. The behaviour of racial purity is the historical norm. Suggesting that racial purity is a Nazi or Communist invention is absolutely preposterous, while it clearly ignores human historical reality. Racial purity is a human tradition. Biological factors may be involved for this human attraction to racial purity (here I briefly talked about the relationship between (evolutionary) biology and racial purity).
When you add a little bit of dirt to a pool of water, it immediately spreads to the entire pool of water. If I told you that a pool of water is 10% poisoned, would you still drink from it? I have a hard time believing that anyone would want to drink from such a pool. People want to drink pure water. Drinking is a behaviour that is the symbol for sex or reproduction, in this case. People want to reproduce or have sex with other individuals who are pure. Even mixed-race people tend to show a preference for the racially pure or what they perceive as pure. However, people tend to experience significant discomfort while being with someone who is racially unsuitable or dissimilar to themselves. People with Dutch heritage will feel more comfortable with people of Dutch heritage, while people of Kenyan heritage will feel more comfortable with people of Kenyan heritage. This is absolutely normal, and there is no reason to condemn this human traditional norm.
People want perfection, beauty and purity, for instance. We may never reach complete perfection, beauty and purity but that should not discourage us from pursuing those ideals with zeal. For most of human history, human beings have indeed pursued such ideals. Pathologising such normal human behaviours as perfection-ism, beauty-ism or pur-ism does not help us to achieve more empathy for the historical human situation. Instead, we should stress the need for empathy towards the human traditional norm. I cannot understand a text properly unless I am trying to be empathetic towards the author. People cannot understand racial purity either unless they try to be more understanding or open-minded towards it. The current lack of empathy with regards to the human behaviour of racial purity blocks the road towards deeper understanding.
The reproductive behaviours of individuals affect the entire race. Racial purity is therefore a fundamental racial interest. It is strange that this basic human interest is not protected by the international law, while it concerns the welfare of large groups of people. Law is supposed to be based on the protection of interests – the interests we see in the real world are made subject to the law. Western law usually condemns racial discrimination. However, this would be like condemning scientific categorisation or the normal human faculty of making distinctions. You cannot condemn people from making racial distinctions, because they will always continue doing so. Moreover, the concept of racial discrimination is based on the false assumption that distinguishing races is necessarily bad. This sort of black-and-white thinking has no place in reality.
While traditional Chinese wish to live in harmony with reality or the universe as one may say, a fundamental principle of Chinese philosophy is the Middle Way. We do not think in absolutes, but we think it is best to live in a state of balance. The idea that racial discrimination is absolutely bad suggests a lack of balanced thinking. The human faculty of discrimination nor the scientific tendency to discriminate is absolutely bad. We discriminate between animal and man, man and woman, White and Asian. These examples of discrimination are not the epitomes of evil. Western paranoia about discrimination feels incomprehensible to my Chinese heart. I am not at all bothered by people discriminating or distinguishing what they observe.
Impurity spreads fast in water, and that is why we do not drink from it anymore once we learn that some impurity has been mixed into the water. Genes spread fast through an entire population. Controlling the gene flow through racial purity is a basic human evolutionary need. To bring the racial destiny of a population under control by means of monitoring sexual/reproductive behaviours is something that aids human evolution as different caskets are created for humanity to put its eggs in.
There is for any human race no matter as important as achieving social harmony by bringing sexual/reproductive behaviours under the control of the racial group. Becoming an impermeable group is not an affair of political ideology, but it is a matter of pure and simple racial survival. Whatever leads to the protection or renewal of racial purity is good for the race. Essentially, racial purity must be renewed with each and every new generation. The intergenerational transmission of the value of racial purity cannot be stressed enough. Neither can the importance of bringing sexual/reproductive behaviours under the control of the racial group ever be underestimated.
