    Way to confirm you donít know what culture is. In no way is it synonymous with systems of government, which is how you used the term referring to North Korea and China. And just those two? Is western Christian art better than Islamic art? You really donít know what youíre doing when you say youíre a white nationalist because you believe all of western culture is superior to all other cultures. Itís downright stupid to say these things without a) knowing the difference between the terms b) having in-depth knowledge of all cultures.

    Again, democracies (political systems) arenít cultures.

      Again nonsense, the definition of "western culture" includes systems of government, it is right there in the two links. And what other "culture" produced democracies? Human rights? What other culture produced the innovation and scientific advancement that the West did?

        Do you believe in human rights, seer?

            Why is it so hard to answer the question? Do you believe in human rights?

                  Ok, it just seemed you were talking about something slightly different, but I could have been more specific in my question. Do you believe in, or agree with, the content of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights?

                    You bet your tuchus if Obama back then impulsively and regularly tweeted bonkers vomit like Trump, youíd be seeing the same apoplectic responses.

                    Remember when conservative media freaked when Obama put his feet up on Oval Office desk? I bet you do.

                      I doubt that I would agree with all of it. I'll stick to the Declaration and the Constitution.

                        But it seems you argued that it was something good when you said: "And what other "culture" produced democracies? Human rights? What other culture produced the innovation and scientific advancement that the West did?" What is your opinion with regard to that really?

                          Yes the West produced these things. What is your point?

                            That it seems strange to promote the West for ideas or "things" (as if you could could it that) that you do not agree with.

                              I'm not sure what you mean. I have to agree with everything that came out of the West to see the West as superior?

                                When you write: "And what other "culture" produced democracies? Human rights? What other culture produced the innovation and scientific advancement that the West did?" the content seems to suggest that you are listing what makes the West superior. If you do not believe in human rights it seems strange to list it as a justification for finding the West superior.
