The New and Old Burden of the White Man

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 12, 2007

21st Century Kashmiri Nomad reflects on “The White Man’s Burden” and what it means in todays world in the blog Islam & The West:

Throughout history the human experience has witnessed mighty empires from the Egyptians to the Assyrians to the Persians to the Macedonians to the Romans to the Sassanids to the Caliphate to the Mongols to the European colonialist. Two themes tie all of the a fore mentioned together and they are conquest and domination. Why should one expect that just because we are in 2007 human nature will have changed when it has not changed in the last 5000 years. The only difference that we have in today’s world is that we couch imperial conquest in terms more palatable to ourselves and more importantly to our peoples. Gone is the white man’s burned to civilise the savages for the sake of God and monarch now the savages are being civilised for the sake of democracy, free markets and globalisation. It seems that the white man’s burden is still with us in 2007 in all but name but it is here never the less no matter how we wish to present it.
