Among infinitely many kinds of living organisms, from microbes to elephants, humans are unique. Thus the outside world is reflected through their eyes and their brains, and humans can describe what they see in the languages of their tribes or nations.
No wonder humans have been creating more and more increasingly amazing “miracles,” tremendously useful or absolutely necessary in their lives, including their work, and this advance had been growing exponentially.
However, the societies that originated in this process differ, as Britain with its freedom of whatever a Briton wants to do unless it harms others, according to the court of law, versus the “People’s Republic of China,” founded by Mao, making slaves out of anyone living on its territory, except Mao himself.
The word “slave” has disappeared as not beautiful enough to be applied by Stalin or Mao to their slaves. Yet slavery originated and went on not only as a result of a modest private transaction to buy a couple of slaves, but also as Stalin’s a priori up to 200 million inhabitants of Russia or by Mao’s enslavement of about 1 billion inhabitants of China.
The slavery of the entire population of a country may be established with the help of what is delicately called “Absolutism,” though surely the ownership of two slaves is also absolute. Under Absolutism two slaves may suffer as much and be killed as cruelly as they were when owned by Stalin or Mao.
The life of humankind has not been unsuccessful. But what about its death?
Nuclear weapons were expected to appear in Nazi Germany, but in the late 1930s Albert Einstein, a physics genius who had been living in Germany, escaped with his family and sent a letter to President Roosevelt to warn him of the need to develop the nuclear bomb to be able to protect the population from surprise aggression.
The United States was the first country to have developed the nuclear bomb. By that time Nazi Germany had already collapsed. When Japan attacked the United States, the country defended itself by dropping a couple of atom bombs on Japan, which surrendered unconditionally as a result.
Have the nuclear weapons been sufficiently developed to put the humankind to death? Actually, the world was divided into Nazi Germany and the rest of the world, considering Germany beyond humanity.
The Third World’s pattern may not be a country like Nazi Germany versus the rest of the world, but divisions like the United States versus the “People’s Republic of China,” in which taken into account should be the crucial fact that the population of PRC exceeds that of the United States by more than 1 billion people, who can be harnessed and trained as producers and users of the latest modern weapons.
The final and decisive question is, Are societies like Stalin’s Russia human? Are they human or are they part of the animal world? We know that a group of animals may be “led” by their “animal leader.” Was not Stalin’s Russia such a group of animals “led” by Stalin?
Stalin’s “Russian” was as primitive as an animal leader’s commands to its animals. His primitive dominant instinct was fear for his own life, which necessitated the existence of his hideout and his animals to defend him.
The fact that Stalin possessed of the human speech at the lowest, elementary level is not surprising, since animals have their own language to express themselves even better than did Stalin in his broken and heavily accented Russian.
Stalin’s Russian does not testify to his human mind. The defeat of Hitler in Russia is illustrative, since Hitler had an animal mind that some humans have. He was appointed “the leader,” since few Germans would accept the post, while Hitler was known for his “patriotic rants.”
The moral is that humankind may descend to the level of animals, and the entire history of humankind may be forgotten or made meaningless by Stalin-like and Hitler-like animals.
Curiously, Hitler was not an anti-Semite, as is clear from any detailed biography of him, and when the persecution of Germans who could be identified as Jewish was in full blown, those who had appointed him demanded that he become a piped piper of hatred for Jews or be dismissed.
