This Is The Greater Renaissance

Few people realise how fortunate we are to be living at this precise moment in history. A few decades from now, historians will look back on this era as the ‘Greater Renaissance’. We are participating in the greatest moral, social and cultural progress personkind has ever witnessed; if we do not recognize this, it is purely because our active engagement in advancing the rights of the LGBTQ community on a daily basis means we fail to see the bigger picture.

The first Renaissance spanned the 14th to 17th century and bridged the medieval and modern ages. The Renaissance (origin: subsaharan Africa, meaning ‘rebirth’) was a time of great scientific, artistic, and philosophical advancement in the West. However, this rebirth hardly happened without a catalyst, as so many history books suggest.

At its origin was the exploration of foreign lands by European sailors and the discoveries they made. Following their many voyages, the Europeans appropriated various ideas that had already been made by more advanced civilizations. Algebra, advanced architectural techniques, and incredibly effective medicines: these had all been devised well before the Europeans’ racist ships landed on African, Asian and Middle Eastern beaches. Re-visiting the renaissance today, we now know, for example, that many of the inventions of Leonardo Da Vinci came from the work of Muslim scientists several centuries before, and from the Koran specifically. Leonardo was guilty of cultural appropriation of other countries too. Indeed, the famous Da Vinci drawing above (Vitruvian Man) was clearly inspired by his study of Indian deities as shown below:

Da Vinci was inspired by the multiple armed goddesses inherent to Indian deities

All of this is history while, today, we are making history. The advances we are witnessing throughout society are explained by the philosophy of Hegel; specifically, the Hegelian dialectic which posits that the contradiction between a proposition (thesis) and its antithesis is resolved at a higher level of truth. In simple words, personkind is building on existing truths and ideas and re-fashioning them at a ‘higher level’. Some examples of this in action:

  • The concept of marriage has now been made far more inclusive. Unlike the people who went before us over thousands of years, this generation is the first to recognise that a homosexual marriage is just as good if not better than a heterosexual union that produces children
  • Twerking is an advanced dance technique that previous generations were incapable of contemplating let alone performing
  • We have now discovered that there are in excess of 70 genders and not just two – how could previous generations have been blind to this?
  • Rap is a subtle blend of street poetry with advanced musical sounds that greatly exceeds in value anything Mozart could produce
  • The notion of ‘nation states’ is thankfully becoming something of the past; borders are coming down and we are headed for the utopia of a New World Order
  • Modern Art is vastly superior to anything that Rembrandt created
Unlike Rembrandt, future generations will still be flocking to view this art for many years to come

In summary, we are a generation that is truly blessed to have lived in the Greater Renaissance. We have become the ‘Superman’ that Nietzche dreamed of, except that we are a 78-gendered, twerking, rapping ‘Super trans-specied person’.

Future historians will have the clear vision see all these magnificent changes you are writing about. What a shame that most of us are blind to the greatness of what is happening today! I personally thought I was living in a horrible time in history till I started reading AT.

I hope they preserve his body so we can make pilgrimages to an “Obama Mausoleum,” just like the Lenin Mausoleum on Red Square. I cried when I saw Lenin for the first time years ago. He was such an unbelievable leader, even for a white.

trav777

yes, a shrine in Kenya will be magnificent!!!

trav777

I agree with all of this…did you know that the Europeans also stole the ideas of sailing and maritime navigation from the lands they invaded by ship?

Black people built America. America was a horrible place before 1965…EVERY SINGLE city and place in the country was PRECISELY like rural, southern Mississippi!

It is an honor to be living in Current Year in Current Century. Historians will look back at the all-seeing eye watching them 24×7, across the rows and rows of different-gender bathrooms, or maybe just one for all, over the vast expenses of entire cities, states, everything, where diversity has finally leveled it all, and they will know we were the brave progressives who gave it to them.

Black Lives Matter

So true. We have entire fields, like Womyn’s Studies, African-American Studies, LGBT Studies, and Social Justice, that did not exist 100 years ago. It truly is an Information Age thanks to Al Gore, who invented the Internet, and Barack Obama, the first African-American President.

Both Nobel Peace Prize winners I might add.

Black Lives Matter

And deservedly so. No one had a stronger case for a Nobel in history than Obama and Gore.

Black Lives Matter

This is why we need a Third Term.

We have to be careful – we should somehow frame this so that it looks different from Putins’ actions – he is in his third term right now.

Perhaps constitution can be changed in the way that Presidential terms are 10 years, and then we do not need the third term? Or that after election spouse or children can inherit Presidency?.

MillionDollarBonus

That’s a smart way to do it. There will no doubt be a massive backlash from racists who want no more of our first African American President. It needs to be done in a way that seems as reasonable as possible. One possibility is to declare a state of emergency because of Russian hacking, and simply extend Obama’s second term, rather than offering him a third one Who could object to that? We’ve already had confirmation of Russian involvement in our elections by multiple accredited intelligence sources.

trav777

it is the tradition in fully diverse nations for the children of the leader to inherit the throne. We should be endeavoring to get to this point as quickly as possible. That will further democracy and freedom more than anything

The Twenty-second Amendment was written, ratified, and adopted during years of unrestrained racism, between 1947 and 1951, by angry white men. Perhaps the men responsible for the two-term limit somehow foresaw President Obama, and didn’t want to allow a third term for a popular president of color.

Black Lives Matter

Exactly. This amendment is void because African-Americans were disenfranchised when it was supposedly “ratified.” It sure as hell wasn’t ratified by me.

Black Lives Matter

That rule would make so much sense. Whites had their chance; they screwed everything up. Now it’s our chance.

Also, I think you meant “Presidents of Color,” instead of “colored presidents,” which sounds microaggessionistic. If I were you, I would consider editing the comment before a politically correct person takes offense. Fortunately, we progressives don’t really go in for political correctness, which makes us hip and cool, just like Bill Maher.

MillionDollarBonus

Bill Maher is a real libertarian. He understands that true libertarianism is about fighting for people of color and the LGBTQ+ community, and that Republicans are racist. He also understands how terrible Trump is, unlike many who claim to be libertarian. Real libertarians support Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Thank you for flagging my racist comment. There was no excuse for it and I regret falling below the standards required of an accredited writer. I wish to offer BLM as much water melon as he would like between now and the end of the year by was a compensation. Only because he previously said he was a fan of this fruit i hasten to add

Pbier and where exactly is the birthplace of Obummer? Kenya? Hawaii? Never mind, no one gives a shit. We stopped by the birth place of Bill Clinton while on a trip. Looks like a real dump, from lack of maintenance.

Thing is no one cares include pedophile Bill. Now if it was next to a girls middle school he would be all over it (the school girls that is).

Same thing about Obummers birthplace. He would only visit if he could smoke pot and play hide the sausage with his muslim butt buddies.

Try raising money from your progressive friends to make something of Obummers birthplace.

Obama is a CITIZEN OF THE WORLD. Who cares where he was born??? The issues we face are GLOBAL — like climate change, police brutality, racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and Islamophobia.

Your libel against Bill Clinton does not even warrant comment. Which mainstream media outlet ever reported anything like that on Clinton? It’s absurd!

MillionDollarBonus

Exactly – who cares about some technicality in the constitution which was ratified before African Americans were allowed to vote. Plus the constitution is a living document which needs to be interpreted according to the times, and as I repeatedly have to remind people, this is the 21ST CENTURY, IDIOTS! Besides, there is no coverage of any of this supposed ‘evidence’ on ANY credible news medium, so right-wingers need to shut up.

1. Who is “Obummer”? Did your spelling disABILITIES strike again?
2. Why would Muslims want to hide the sausage? As far as I am aware, it is white Europeans who steal and hide Muslim sausages!

MillionDollarBonus

Where are you getting this information that Obama isn’t an American citizen? I follow multiple news sources (CNN, MSNBC, NYT and the Washington Post) EVERY DAY, and I haven’t seen ANY credible evidence for this re-emerging conspiracy theory. You’re not fooling anyone.

two people in the “art” gallery hardly suggests flocking. And that bow-legged crack ho in black needs to cover up her midriff before her clients start getting their service in plain sight. And what is that on the wall?

Trump supporters are so unsophisticated it’s pathetic. You probably have a problem with Spirit Cooking as well.

These people are frankly beneath us. I have a degree in Critical Race Theory from Portland Community College, and here I am arguing with a bunch of hick state rednecks with no class or nuance. It’s depressing that progressives have to stoop to this level to educate these fools.

trav777

probably Portland State is a better line, with “African Studies” and a specialty in CRT…you from the NW?

MillionDollarBonus

I’m not from Oregon – but I traveled there to study PCC’s highly acclaimed CRT course.

Without a doubt. Modern art puts the renaissance to shame.

Queers play hide the sausage all the time with eachother. Do you know what it means now?

I don’t know what it means, but nobody should have sausage in his house. I recommend that anybody who is not a vegan read the articles “Vegan Living For the Holiday Season” and “The Joy of Cocker Spaniels” on Accredited Times.

I do not know why queer American would need to hide their sausages from each other more than others. May be if some of those are highly desirable soy or tofu sausages?
