There are certainly generalizations that can be made about any group of people who identify as a group, Satanists included.
Some generalizations are more accurate than others, but
none should be taken as absolute.
Are many stereotypes, racial or otherwise, true?
Yes. Are they always true, and under any circumstance? No.
I advocate pluralism and respect diversity, but I don't necessarily like everything that I encounter.
Racism is another form of stratification, plain and simple.
I am not opposed to racism because of moral, societal, or emotional "values;" I am opposed to racism because its foundation is assumption masquerading as absolute truth. Content of character is an individual trait, and racism tries to deny that simple assertion.
If I had to draw a "label line in the sand," I would call myself an occasional ACULTURIST. More often than not, when someone refers to race, ('I hate rap', for instance) they more accurately are referring to culture. There are many cultural aspects that I passionately hate, and some cultures that I would prefer to see eradicated -- like Muslim culture. It sounds harsh, and the PC-priests would tear me to shreds for such a comment, but I care not. There is nothing about that particular culture that I would consider worth preserving in relation to the benefit of it's utter annihilation.
But regardless of whether we are discussing racial, cultural, or national tensions, some things will forever remain pragmatic truths:
- True equality does not exist. Not amongst individuals, groups, species, or nations.
- Diversity sparks dynamism, which often and necessarily manifests in the form of conflict.
- In a scenario regarding conflict, you can bet that anyone's interest will be geared towards their own survival (it is the highest law, after all!)
Time will tell which groups dominate, and which decay; who can coexist peaceably, and who will battle relentlessly to extinction.
Tact and cunning will aid the earthly combatant, but silly ideals may well bury him.
