Xenophobia (antipathy towards what is foreign) is just one side of a single coin, on the other side of which is “familiaphilia” (love of the familiar). You cannot have one without the other, although, insanely, this is what is demanded of us by “moral supremacists” in defence of the liberal-fascist/statist ideology, and the MADNESS of mass immigration and multi-ethnic society, currently being imposed on western democracies.
Liberal-fascist/statist ideology, not coincidentally, is the exact, but equally extreme, opposite of Nazi fascist ideology, the horrors of which it was initially an understandable overreaction to (as well as to the injustice and inhumanity of Jim Crow and Apartheid), but was consolidated in this extreme form through power-political opportunism, mainly by the Left, like the medieval church, seeking the POWER and advantage of the “moral high ground” for itself, but reinforced by the economic opportunism (cheap foreign labour) of capital and the statist (as opposed to nationalist) Right.
The Nazis took xenophobia and familiaphilia to insane and criminal extremes, seeing (“loving”) themselves as objectively superior to others (foreigners), whom they hated or held in contempt, using the basis of Darwin’s evolutionary theory, “survival of the fittest”, to rationalise and justify their inhumanity to their fellow, but non-Germanic, humans.
In response to the horrors that Nazi ideology resulted in, we went to the opposite extreme of demonising xenophobia, “familiaphilia” (love of one’s own, beyond the confines of immediate family) and any application of Darwin’s theory to human society. This overreaction was then set in the concrete of liberal-statist ideology (derived from the internationalism of the Left and from Christian universalism – the Catholic church, not calling itself “catholic” for nothing), at the core of which is the denial that race or ethnic origins are of any social or political importance (especially in respect to national identity), except to evil “racists” like the Nazis.
The problem with this ideology – quite apart from its power-political purpose – is that race and ethnic origins DO matter, being of profound importance for a deep and meaningful sense of personal and group, i.e. national, identity.
STATE and capital, however, are not interested in human beings’ need for a deep and meaningful sense of personal and group identity, which they might make the basis of organising THEMSELVES into genuine tribes and nations, instead of the pseudo tribes and nations which state, religion and capital currently organise us into, in order to facilitate our manipulation and exploitation as a “human resource” and market.
