The truth is that Mozart, Pascal, Boolean algebra, Shakespeare,
parliamentary government, baroque churches, Newton, the emancipation
of women, Kant, Marx, Balanchine ballet et al., don't redeem what
this particular civilization has wrought upon he world. The white
race is the cancer of human history. It is the white race and it
alone -- its ideologies and inventions -- which eradicates autonomous
civilizations wherever it spreads, which has upset the ecological
balance of the planet, which now threatens the very existence of
life itself.
