The Progressive Left’s Repressed Colonial Attitudes

Submitted by Mathijs Koenraadt on Wed, 08/12/2015 - 21:39

Over drinks with a progressive colleague, I disagreed with his opinion that white people, Westerners, have a “moral obligation” to help the rest of the world as if to make up for past wrongs (e.g. slavery, colonialism, Nazism). Although I support tearing down international trade barriers and even dropping Third World debt to the West, and while I wish for Third World nations to achieve equal or exceeding levels of wealth, I reject the Western guilt complex that shames us into submission to the Faith of Political Correctness, the Cult of the Progressive Left.
