In every society, there is inferiority versus superiority based on class, race, or divisions in ranks as in the military. Job status, education, money or race depends on a given society classifications and yet can still be considered inferior even though someone is educated or relatively wealthy.
In most countries or societies individuals or someone within the ranks can move positively upwards based on education and wealth but in a race more so than religion one can still be considered inferior.
What makes a man or his race inferior is not by military conquest, but the conquest of his mind to believe all of his civilizations, his Gods’ and way of life is not worthy of value and believing instead that his conqueroring God and way of life is superior to his, then indeed the conquered or subjugated man is inferior.
That many slaves and conquered nations fought for their freedom is testimony that they were not inferior because they never considered defeat as an option; their minds were never captured.
The case of Robinson Crusoe and his slave Friday living on an abandoned island is an example of my point. The slave Friday could have made use of the Crusoe gun which he had access to, but never did because Friday the slave was convinced by his master that he Friday was inferior to his master. Mr. Friday’s mind was the cause of his own inferiority.
In Guyana the Crusoe and Friday mindset is playing out in the same way. Just as Crusoe convinced Friday the slave touching the gun is taboo even when Friday saw how Crusoe himself used the gun to shoot a bird. Similarly, the Indians in Guyana are all Fridays who are convinced by their masters [ PNC= Crusoe] that the courts is their best way for freedom and touching guns is taboo; obeying their Crusoe leaders is the best opportunity for their survival.
Therefore, when a race or person mind cannot advance out of their boundaries given their many opportunities to be free, that race or person is an inferior being. A slave who rebels was never inferior; his mindset was his own. In Guyana Indians had 23 years to comprehend what
Friday failed to explore the possibilities of Crusoe’s gun. The PPP party remains with the same mindset that racially equalizing Guyana’s armed forces is taboo.
In Trinidad in 1956 the urban Christian / Muslims Indians sold their race to the PNM and as a consequence the Indian race remain politically inferior today. The PNM ruled Trinidad for 56 unbroken years. When the Indian mindset can change to think embody ethnic pride, then the Indian race will take their place knowing that their inalienable rights are not to be sold.
A superior person has a superior mind which is sadly lacking in Guyana and Trinidad among Indians.
