The primary idea of Stoicism, a 2000 year old philosophy, is that everything, as much as possible, which excludes some religious beliefs, but includes all other beliefs, thoughts, theories and emotions, should be based on facts.

Critical race theory, or CRT for those too lazy or woke to spell the words, proposes that oppressed people of various minority races and groups who live in a majority White Christian world are united in some way by a mythical intersectionality or common experience of racism , discrimination or oppression.

It is a theory which is not based on facts. Scholars of CRT view race as a social construct with no biological basis.

This blatantly false concept was invented, and is subscribed to, by very intelligent intellectuals who need it for career boosting, who live in their ivory towers,  and who are disconnected from fact-based reality.

A key CRT concept is intersectionality—the way in which different forms of inequality and identity are affected by interconnections. But there are no interconnections. In slavery there are just people who can be chained together to do their masters’ bidding, whether its harvesting grain, working in their master’s house or tending fields. It is not the race that is important. It is the ability to submit to do the work for a minimum of food and no prospects.

Other than this, there is no intersectionality, no similarities of any type required to be considered inferior. It is not necessarily racist. It is a financial opportunity.

Similarly there is no connection between discrimination against Blacks, Chinese, other Asians, Jews or indigenous peoples. It is not politically correct, but it is totally human to discriminate against other tribes or groups. CRT is a mythical way to counter the fact that Blacks and Muslims do not do as well as White Christians in a White, Christian world.

Then if we add Jews, who are neither White nor Christian, to the mix, their success as an obviously often disliked minority shows that CRT is just a poor reason for the success of the Christian White’s extraordinary physical and cultural successes over the last 2000 years.

If we believe in conspiracy theories, CRT is a method of destroying a great culture and replacing it with a strong foreign dictatorship that is not intellectually, morally, or economically as successful.

Jews, just 2% of the population of Canada, have succeeded in White Christian society. They don’t fit CRT theory. CRT theorists and antisemites have therefore included them in the class of White Christian oppressors.

Jews do not believe in Jesus as the son of God, they are not all white, as is clear from Israeli demographics, they have their own private schools, and a culture that emphasizes family relationships which is slightly different than Christian family relationships. Why then do Jews not face the same problems as other minorities? They do.

But they have a culture that praises education, hard work, and competition. It is attuned to capitalism.

It succeeds where other minorities fail. Under Black slavery only the strong survived. Under European oppression only the cleverest of the Jews survived. Israel, and the strong Jewish participation in the Canadian armed forces in WW2 has shown that Jews can be strong and courageous.

Other minorities must change their culture to succeed in a capitalist society. CRT proponents know that the success of Jews debunks the intersectional theory and so they include them as white oppressors.

Jews are the proof that it is culture, not oppression, that has limited many minorities from succeeding in a capitalist world. Jews should be a light to struggling minorities, not a group included as imagined oppressors.
