Cultural Appropriation

Is what the Left classifies as “cultural appropriation” really cultural appropriation? What is cultural appropriation according to Leftist “politically correct”? Well, you are not supposed to wear Indian, sorry, American Native, clothes for Halloween unless you are an American Native, or dress up like a Japanese woman in your music video unless you are a Japanese woman (or perhaps a Japanese transvestite?). You are not supposed to go into the Mexican food restaurant business if you are not Mexican. Does this mean that if you are from Central America or South America you are also not allowed to go into the Mexican food restaurant business? You see, they do not really specify the rules very much at all. Would the Left get upset if a Chinese person dressed up like a Japanese person, or if a Japanese person dressed up like a Chinese person or if a Korean dressed up like a Vietnamese, or a Vietnamese dressed up like a Korean? Would these “politically correct” Leftists even know the difference? Would they even be able to tell the difference between someone from Cambodia from someone from Hong Kong? Would they be able to tell the difference between someone from Saudi Arabia or someone from Iran apart? And what about white people? Is it inappropriate for an American of German heritage to dress up in a Kilt? How far do these silly rules go or take us? Surely the communist Leftists have not really thought all of this out. It is simply their divisive way to try and separate people who are supposed to be UNITED (of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA)!  In fact, I see their actions as racist or them being prejudiced!

SOCIALISM, COMMUNISM, AND CAPITALISM

            A Christian Scientist and I had been speaking about the Presidential candidates and I told her I liked B. Sanders but I did not like socialism because it leads to communism.  I think I also gave her the equation of socialism = communism.  She wrote back to tell me that socialism was not communism.  It seemed as if she felt that socialism was not a bad thing, that it was a good thing, and that it had merits, as she listed past Presidents who used socialistic programs.  (Just because a President uses something does not make it good or even a necessity.)  I did not plan on writing all that I did back to her, but after I received something in the mail on that very same day discussing the same topic, which was written in 1945, I felt that I had to share parts of it with her.  (What I told her was wrong but it was also right.  To find out how this is can be – read the next paragraph.)
