Big Brother Racism? Read This

Guns, Germs and Steel is the name of Jared Diamond’s superb anti-racist book which explains today’s world.  Its alternative title is ‘A Short History of Everyone for the Last 13 000 Years’.  The book attempts to give a rational account of the world’s inequalities.

Why European civilisation has conquered and exploited others, for example.  Its not because we’re any better.  Diamond argues that the gaps in power and technology between human societies does not reflect cultural or racial superiority.  The difference is environmental.  He totally refutes the belief that European dominance is due to any form of intellectual or moral hierarchy.

Seems like the book should be recommended reading for the Big Brother household.
