Vox Popoli: Exposing the enchantments

Conservatives and liberals alike are discovering that the Martin Luther King dream was never any more legitimate than any other Enlightenment lie:
Last week, a group of minority students emailed Professor Gordon Klein, asking him to let black students sit out this week’s exams in light of recent events. Klein refused. In an email supposedly from the professor, he explained his issues with the students’ racial grievances.

“Do you know the names of the classmates that are black?” he allegedly wrote. “How can I identify them, since we’ve been having online classes only? Are there any students that may be of mixed parentage, such as half black-half Asian? What do you suggest I do with respect to them? A full concession or just half? “One last thing strikes me: Remember that MLK famously said that people should not be evaluated based on the 'color of their skin.' Do you think that your request would run afoul of MLK’s admonition?”

The woke mob saw red, and a student named Preet Bains started a petition to have the professor fired. The petition, which describes Klein’s response as “woefully racist,” has attracted nearly 20,000 signatures, and UCLA has apparently sided with the aggrieved students. At some point since Friday, Klein was placed on leave.

Racial equality and content of character are not only the same sort of Enlightenment spells as free speech, free trade, and the labor theory of value, they are deep Promethean psyops that have successfully demoralized and paralyzed the Christian West for the last 60 years.

But sooner or later, the truth always exposes the lie hidden underneath the spell.

If you're one of those self-deceivers who "doesn't see color" or "looks at people as individuals" or "refuses to judge others by the color of their skin but by the content of their character", then you have been spell-bound by the evil wizards who serve Satan.

Only God sees the human heart, so by accepting the foundational lie of this spell, you are acceding to the Promethean program of seeking to make yourself a god.
