The Curse And Philosophy Of Separatism

By George Sistrunk

A curse is an affliction, evil incarnate, an insidious state of affairs. The curse of separatism and its inherent philosophy is no less insidious and has plagued mankind since the “Tower of Babel”.

The curse of separatism and the philosophy it has spawned divide and redivide our lives and realities into opposing forces or camps. It sets nation against nation, ethnic group against ethnic group, race against race, men against women, brother against brother, management against labor and yes, it can even set children against their parents.

Under the curse of separatism, body, mind, soul and spirit are disjointed and ununited. Man is separated from himself, GOD and nature. People are separated from themselves and the world in which they live. The curse of separatism creates divisions where none should exist. The curse and the philosophy it has produced have been steadily growing through out the millenniums. Together they have consumed more and more of our reality until it is difficult to determine what is truth and what is a lie.

Under the curse of separatism and its ensuing philosophy, holistic reality becomes fragmented. Fragmentation degenerates into factionalization and fractionalization. Factionalization and fractionalization neutralize and prohibit intellectual growth, integration and unification. As a result nations and groups war against each other. Only unification and integration working together are strong enough to overcome and repudiate the divisionistic effects of separatism. However, it rarely happens.

The curse of separatism and its accompanying philosophy are so all consuming, so well entrenched until they literally defy the human mind’s ability, capacity and intellectuality to grasps its reality. The curse of separatism and its philosophy have been destroying our environment and our peace and tranquility for thousands of years. They are so pervasive until they seem like a normal part and pattern of our lives.

Ironically, this degenerate and abnormal state of affairs has been around so long and used so often to justify rampant nationalism, socialism, communism and predatory capitalism until many people actually believe it is normal to separate “White from Black”, Rich from Poor”, “Jews from Gentiles”, Protestants from Catholics”, “Shi’ite from Sunni”, “Buddhist from Hindu”, “Muslims from Infidels” and every other divisionistic concept a warped mentality can produce. When the reverse is true.

Entire nations separate and confine themselves to well defined territories. Then the people within these nations further divide and separate themselves by imaginary boundaries such as county and state lines, culture, heritage, race, religion, ethnicity and a host of other debilitating ideologies. These psychological creations of perverted mentalities categorize and characterize people into imaginary groups.

If these groupings ever achieve any real power and authority they immediately begin to subjugate, repress, oppress and discriminate against others. Under the curse of separatism and its incessant philosophy, world leaders and the people that support them have conquered, controlled, exploited and butchered millions.

The curse of separatism and its philosophy have not only poisoned governments, they have also corrupted economic systems, educational institutions, religious institutions, political institutions and perverted the mentality of millions. Non integrated degreed programs in colleges and universities, political parties, kingdoms, nation states, war and pestilence, poverty, social disintegration, racism, anti-semitism and even modern terrorism are all products of this curse and its philosophy.

In politics, if two parties are present, one will be conservative and the other liberal. If more than two parties are present they will all have various degrees of conservatism or liberalism. This is done to deceive the masses that they have a choice. If only one party is present, it will separate itself from the people and tyrannize them.

Even the social order has not escaped the curse, its philosophy and its value system. This abhorrent and detestable state of affairs is usually achieved by initiating class distinctions or class struggle; such as, upper class, middle class and lower class. Group distinctions; such as, Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Jews, Orientals, Indians, Mexicans, Unions, Blue Collar or White Collar or any other distinction deranged minds can conceive are also physical and intellectual manifestations of this madness.

The curse of separatism is a by product of humanity’s original sin and our fall from grace which separated us from our true selves and GOD. As a result of the immensity of the fall of man, all humanity is also separated from nature and can only be reconciled back to GOD through JESUS CHRIST and the ministry of reconciliation.

Throughout history, the curse of separatism and its philosophy allow the few to control, repress, suppress, oppress and exploit the many. Together they promote and justify the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a small minority. Together they legitimize the exploitation and/or destruction of natural and/or human resources for the benefit of this small minority. Far too often in our collective world history, this small minority is corrupt and perverted.

Repression of the masses and disunity among the masses are essential for this small group of people to enjoy their privileges and maintain their power and control. Most of the misery, death and destruction this planet has experienced over the last 6,000 years can be directly traced to the curse of separatism and its diabolical philosophy.

The curse, its philosophy and the value systems that emanate from it makes it difficult, if not impossible for people of diverse backgrounds to unite without force or the threat of force. Unity would be a direct threat to the power of the ruling elite and the privileges they enjoy.

This curse and its philosophy promote and encourage the backwardness of most the world’s population. This allows the vast majority of the world’s resources to be controlled by and for the benefit of a handful of nations. The vast majority of people living within these handful of nations do not see themselves as malevolent. On the contrary, they see themselves as benevolent. They do not see themselves, their greed and desire for more and more privileges as part of the problem, they sincerely believe they have the solution to the problem.

The backward condition of the remaining world population is not accidental. The backward condition of the vast majority of African and Latino people living in America is not accidental. The curse of separatism and its destructive philosophy must have resources to exploit and population groups to suppress, oppress and tyrannize with force or the threat of force. To call this madness ruthless and brutal is a mild and timid description of its barbarity.

As long as this curse, its philosophy and its value systems are the dominant power on the planet, disease, starvation, deprivation, war and destruction will be with us until GOD returns. The reason for this is quite simple: The opposite philosophy of separation and segregation is unification and integration.

The curse, its philosophy and its value systems are so deeply rooted , entrenched and embedded within societies around the world until the best we can ever hope to do is tolerate and desegregate. Unification and Integration nullifies the curse, its philosophy and its value systems.

It is for this reason that government leaders afflicted with the perverted mentality of separatism and the population group that support them promote and encourage religion rather than spirituality. True spirituality is integrationist in concept and not separatist. True spirituality promotes the union of man, god and nature. True spirituality is against exploitation. True spirituality is against nationalism.

True spirituality is against control and repression of the many by the few. True spirituality promotes living and enjoying life in the “here and now”, rather than the hereafter. True spirituality promotes responsibility for ones thoughts and actions and does not transfer responsibility to mystical entities, political systems or to others.

The only effective way to counter the curse, its philosophy and value systems is to initiate and implement a philosophy of unification, integration and true spirituality. Problems created by a philosophy can not be solved with that same philosophy. An opposite philosophy must be used. Any method and procedure produced under the curse of separatism and its value systems will and must create more problems than it solves.

Individually, collectively as a group or nationally, unresolved problems will explode into war or some other violent outbreak sooner or later. The reason for this is simple, separatism divides and weakens. It can not and does not unify and strengthen.

Under the curse of separatism, its inherent philosophy and its value systems, governments can not allow or promote complete integration. Therefore, they promote and condone desegregation. Desegregation allows and supports superficial intermingling which is still separation. This is exactly what is happening in every multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and multi-racial society through out the world. America isn’t a bit closer to integration in 2007 than it was in the 17Th Century. African Americans and Latinos have confused increased toleration and desegregation with integration.

Muslim and European nations, the former republics of the Soviet Union, South America, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Africa and 99% of the remaining nations on the planet with diverse population or ethnic groups are no closer to integration and unification than they were in the 15Th century.

Do not forget, the curse of separatism, its philosophy and its value systems divide and redivide everything into opposing camps or ideologies. This sets the masses and individuals within the masses against each other in all kinds of devious ways. Therefore, real peace on earth for all its inhabitants is not possible without the presence and power of GOD himself.
