1. Ideology is the reflection of the material. Therefore, asking the African tribal or American lumepnprole to be progressive means not only asking them to uproot their worldview, but also their way of life.
The reason some third worlders may be "more progressive" than American hamburgers is because of their material conditions. They actually have incentive to be progressive.
My point: Different groups WILL have different cultures, though different cultures and ideological systems will have a tendency to be homogenized over time. We have seen the assimilation of groups, and consequently their cultures. This is due to proletarianization, globalization, or whatever you want to call it. The result is: the homogenization of class interests.
Someone stated that capitalism must be dismantled before progressivism will take off, though I argue the opposite: Capitalism - polar or multipolar - and it's contradictions should be intensified to give the people the material incentive to be progressive.
Appalachia has been a pet project of libs who think we're all dumb, inbred illiterates who need their condescending help ever since J.D. Vance blamed our shitty lives in us being shitty people. But they don't give a fuck about black folks' poverty because that's just de facto. They've turned ignoring it into a reflex.
Yes it is right.
Praying on a carpet, burning incense or dancing in a dpecific way is tradition. Oppressing groupd of people is being an asshole and such behaviour should be eradicated. By force if necessary.
This is just spooky nationalism. If it is right to enforce prpgressive values on your neightbour, then why shouldnt you do it to people across the globe?
