CURT: WHAT ABOUT CASTE CULTURES?
—“Genuine question: wasnât that the upside to caste in traditional cultures?”— Jim Yankowsky
Social orders with Casts prevent people from feeling left behind or of lower status (left out or discarded by the herd)
As long as (as in the hindu model, or the western model, or the chinese model) rotation is possible by achievement, absolutely nothing.
The west had wild animal (barbarian), slave, serf, freeman, citizen, nobility, aristocracy under agrarianism. At present we have about the same hierarchy but military, commercial, and intellectual are in competition for the body politic (labor and women). SO the hierarchy goes in three directions, rather than one. And the three directions compete (gossip/talk, commerce/trade, law/force). At present the court mediates the market between the directions.
The difference with castes is that you are justifying someone’s status by the beneficial function that they serve in society ,a nd preserving defense against outbreeding (downbreeding), and all sorts of ‘democracy’ and its religious equivalents.
There is nothing bad about hindu religion at all other than the fact that they are weak, and lack sufficient middle class to produce courts free of familial corruption.
I don’t like the silly mystical stuff. But that aside it’s a good system. Islam is the worst of all possible worlds. Equalitarian ignorance with mandated hostile aggression to perform consumption on the capital of other civilizations.
