My. There's a lot going on in this commentary. Without going into

certain scientific inquiry must be squelched

"there might be a direct cause and effect
relationship between a particular socio-
cultural strategy for success, living
standard and or per capita income" (I don't
understand this well enough to paraphrase

welfare sums to zero

material production victimizes

beneficiaries of "our culturally imperial-
istic ways" are inherently more evil than
countless other peoples

there is ethnocide worldwide without
historical precedent

we deserve collective guilt more than we
bear already

are logically separable.
