The Jewish Origins of Cultural Pluralism

Let’s start with a quick definition of what Cultural Pluralism is….

Cultural Pluralism is the idea that many different races and cultures can coexist peacefully within a dominant culture. Minority cultures are encouraged to maintain their cultural identity and are encouraged to uphold their own cultural values and practices. Cultural Pluralism is the idea that different cultures can exist inside one nation without conflict.

Cultural Pluralism is often described as being separate from Multiculturalism, however when looked at objectively Cultural Pluralism is essentially another term for Multiculturalism.

Multiculturalism is said to lack the requirement of a dominant culture. Those of us in the West however who are aware of what is going on understand that Cultural Pluralism is the foundation of nation and culture destroying Multiculturalism. The idea that different minority races and cultures within a society should be maintained and celebrate their separateness and be free to grow, consolidate and expand is essentially what Multiculturalism is.

It is said that if the dominant culture (in this case Western culture) is weakened, societies can easily pass from Cultural Pluralism into Multiculturalism without any intentional steps being taken by that society. So basically that is an admission that Multiculturalism weakens the host culture and that Cultural Pluralism is one step on the way to this happening. By importing other races and cultures into a society and encouraging them to remain distinct from the host culture, it sows the seeds of cultural destruction for the dominant and host culture.

Multiculturalism which is forced onto Western nations begins with a dominant host culture as the target. This culture which is predominantly Christian in origin and is racially European, is supplanted by the importation of different races and cultures that grow exponentially gradually engineering the host culture and population into a minority. Cultural Pluralism is simply another way of saying ‘diversity’ or ‘cultural enrichment.’

Cultural Pluralism which is essentially Multiculturalism, could also be called Racial Pluralism which is the idea that different ethnic and racial groups should be allowed to exist and thrive inside a nation. This is always presented as being a societal good, as being enriching and support for which is seen as being morally virtuous. However the intention is racial and cultural replacement which is evidenced by the impending minority status for white Europeans across the Western world as a result of state enforced Multiculturalism.

The term ‘Cultural Pluralism’ was coined by a Jewish philosopher by the name of Horace M. Kallen who was a very interesting individual. He was a member of the Zionist Organisation of America which was pursuing a Jewish homeland in Palestine, yet he advocated cultural and racial diversity for America. His vision for America as a multiracial and multicultural nation was at odds with his desire for an exclusively Jewish homeland for Jews. Kallen was an advocate of separate cultures existing in society rather than the ‘melting pot’ vision for America. He would never have promoted such an idea for his longed-for Jewish state of course, which was to be totally Jewish with no other races and cultures existing within its borders.

‘Kallen believed that Cultural Pluralism not only was possible within a democracy, but that it defined a healthy democracy. Cultural homogeneity, in contrast, stifled citizens’ creativity and limited a society’s potential for development.’

He didn’t apply this logic to any future Jewish state however.

He wasn’t merely an advocate of racial and cultural diversity for America, Kallen was also at the core of the pursuit for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. It is Kallen who is said to have been the brains behind the Balfour Declaration which was the promise made by the British during WWI to facilitate Jewish emigration into Palestine at the end of the war in return for Jewish support in bringing America into the war on the side of Britain.

It gets better, Kallen was the founder in 1913 of a secret society known as ‘The Parushim’ which in Hebrew means ‘Pharisees’ and ‘separate,’ and which grew out of Harvard’s Menorah Society.

The goal of The Parushim was to advance the goals of Zionism and the pursuit of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.

According to Sarah Schmidt in “The Parushim: A Secret Episode in American Zionist History,” American Jewish Historical Quarterly 65, Dec (1975) – new members of The Parushim were told the following in a secret initiation ceremony:

“You are about to take a step which will bind you to a single cause for all your life. You will for one year be subject to an absolute duty whose call you will be impelled to heed at any time, in any place, and at any cost. And ever after, until our purpose shall be accomplished, you will be fellow of a brotherhood whose bond you will regard as greater than any other in your life–dearer than that of family, of school, of nation. By entering this brotherhood, you become a self-dedicated soldier in the army of Zion. Your obligation to Zion becomes your paramount obligation… It is the wish of your heart and of your own free will to join our fellowship, to share its duties, its tasks, and its necessary sacrifices.”

The initiate responded by swearing:

“Before this council, in the name of all that I hold dear and holy, I hereby vow myself, my life, my fortune, and my honor to the restoration of the Jewish nation, -to its restoration as a free and autonomous state, by its laws perfect in justice, by its life enriching and preserving the historic speech, the culture, and the ideals of the Jewish people.

“To this end I dedicate myself in behalf of the Jews, my people, and in behalf of all mankind.

“To this end I enroll myself in the fellowship of the Parushim. I pledge myself utterly to guard and to obey and to keep secret the laws and the labor of the fellowship, its existence and its aims. Amen”

Schmidt wrote in her book on Kallen that:

“Kallen invited no one to become a member until the candidate had given specific assurances regarding devotion and resolution to the Zionist cause,” Schmidt also writes, “and each initiate had to undergo a rigorous analysis of his qualifications, loyalty, and willingness to take orders from the Order’s Executive Council.”

Author Peter Grose describes how the group worked toward achieving its goals:

“The members set about meeting people of influence here and there, casually, on a friendly basis. They planted suggestions for action to further the Zionist cause long before official government planners had come up with anything.”

“For example,” Grose writes, “as early as November 1915, a leader of the Parushim went around suggesting that the British might gain some benefit from a formal declaration in support of a Jewish national homeland in Palestine.

What we have then is the Jewish founder of the concept of Cultural Pluralism for America and the West, being the founder of a secretive organisation dedicated to the founding of an exclusively Jewish state that would not be racially or culturally pluralistic, but homogeneously Jewish. He was also a major factor in the writing of the Balfour Declaration which brought America into WWI costing hundreds of thousands of American lives and the lives of millions of Europeans as the war was extended as a result of American entry into it. This was done not in the interests of ‘democracy’ or ‘freedom,’ this was done to save the face of the British who were losing the war and to advance Jewish interests in gaining the support of a major superpower for their quest for a Jewish homeland.

World War One could have ended years earlier than it did but for this shady deal struck by shadowy individuals with immense power and influence over national governments. The lives of millions could have been saved but were lost so that Jews could further their own goals in acquiring Palestine.

I first came across the name Horace M. Kallen when reading a book entitled ‘Against Our Better Judgement’ written by Alison Weir. It is a really good book detailing the extensive Jewish control of America and how this control was used to create Israel.

Here are some other quotes which show how Jews considered Cultural Pluralism to be in their interests as Jews.

“American Jews are committed to cultural tolerance because of their belief, one firmly rooted in history, that Jews are safe only in a society acceptant of a wide range of attitudes and behaviors, as well as a diversity of religious and ethnic groups. It is this belief, for example, not approval of homosexuality, that leads an overwhelming majority of American Jews to endorse “gay rights” and to take a liberal stance on most other so-called “social issues.”

– Charles Silberman

“Jewish survival can only take place within the framework of a progressive and expanding democratic society, which through its institutions and public policies gives expression to the concept of cultural pluralism.” – David Petegorsky, former Director of the American Jewish Congress

Cultural Pluralism therefore can be seen as a divide and conquer strategy designed to both weaken and racially and culturally change societies in which Jews live. This is so they can feel safer, and are less likely to face an homogenous and racially conscious European majority who see their negative influence and react accordingly.

Cultural Pluralism is portrayed as an ideal in which many races and cultures can maintain their own uniqueness within a larger society with no conflict arising. This does not fit with the reality of human nature nor does it have any consideration for the host culture and population that has to endure the gradual eradication of their own identity as these ‘minority’ cultures grow to become the dominant culture and demographic.
