The Internationalist Academic Federation of the ContinentalCollectivePatterns of Humanitys Civilized ConductOmar Alansari-Kreger
After absorbing lengthy dispositions that dwell on humanitys negative qualities,representations of statistical analysis are employed to capitalize on the rather detrimental andimmoral aspects of humanity in what is initially a representation of absolute truth in which thevast majority of the human race is not even aware. A single example that directly pertains tothis affair comes in the literal form of societal ignorance that is withheld by the averageproponent of a respective society. There is a rather simple understatement capitalizing on thebliss of ignorance. In this respect, what we are unaware of does not have the direct tendency tohurt us considering the state of mind in which we immediately retain.A great historical example of this affair emerges in the interwar years of the WeimarRepublic in Germany briefly before the empowerment of the National Socialist Nazi Regime. Adefeated Germany approached the booming nineteen twenties as a nation that was humiliatedbefore the entirety of the international community which was then forced to repay billions of war reparations to the victorious Allied forces in the immediate aftermath of the First WorldWar. The social, political, and economic decay of German infrastructure continued to increaseas the Weimar Republic approached the era of the Great Depression. After the stock marketcrash of nineteen twenty-nine, labor markets were near deceased, economic inflation soared,and the attainment of everyday resources was scarce. In countries such as the nineteen thirtiesGermany, the state of its infrastructural integrity was already in a state of complete deprivationand the aftereffects of these realities made the national situation even worse.The arrival of these new economic and social hardships introduced poverty as a relativenorm to society. It was a common sight to see German families in local corner markets doingtheir everyday shopping with wheel barrels of paper currency. Inasmuch, the situation did notrapidly improve as the Weimar politicians had promised. Furthermore, the empoweredgovernment, which was originally a provisional force, established by the Allies, accepted WorldWar One defeatism. This was a common standard that was rejected by the social mainstream of Weimar Germany. One may ask: what does this situational affair introduce into theconventional mode of the societal fold? The widespread detriment of this reality introduces avulnerable citizenry that is naturally in the pursuit of some sort of salvation. A common

perception can simply inquire into this relative factor which questions if a sovereign society isfaced with such a relatively depressed social environment within its respective society. Then,must the proportional majority of the observed nation suffer under these hardships for anindefinite period of time?Initially, it was the outstanding aftereffects of this historical reality that served as aprecursor for the rise of the National Socialist Nazi Party. The political scene within WeimarGermany was just as inhospitable as the rest of its society. The two main denominationsbetween revolutionary politics were divided between the communists and national socialists.The average German citizen was not invested into the pursuit of political agendas. Nonetheless,each political orientation (faction) promised the Germany citizenry a sense of salvation and thearrival of better days. These political movements and the institutions in which they representnecessitate the support of the general populaces in what is essentially an effort to introducethe changes and promises made to the people. Is this to suggest that a political faction/partyretains a hidden agenda that is the kept secret from the public mainstream? Absolutely, this is acontinual occurrence that has been self perpetuating itself since the dawn of the mostprimitively ancient civilization.The main point here is to emphasize is that when entire societies and their respectivepopulaces are faced with periods of crisis, mass confusion, and social vulnerability; the averageproponent of the national citizenry seeks some form of salvation and hope from societys mostdeplorable aspectual qualities. In reiteration to a previous point in respects to the implicationsof Weimar Germany, the average German citizen was not invested into the embittered arena of politics between the outstanding leftist and rightist spectrums of this time frame. The mainincentive withheld by the citizenry sought the return of a conventional way of life that was notat the literal mercy of the previous wars victors. The National Socialist Nazi Party did notnecessarily achieve its seat of power through a democratically elected process, rather membersof the Brown Shirts (later to be directed into the formation of the SS) stormed into the GermanReichstag and formed a line around the speakers chamber in what was actually an effort tomanipulate the democratic process in their absolute favor. The Night of the Long Knives goeson even further to demonstrate the tactics that the Nazis used to persecute those who did notchampion the underlying beliefs of National Socialism.At the end of the day, the average German did not realize that sympathizing andsupporting the Nazi Party would inevitably lead to the outbreak of a Second World War. Thepublic mainstream was not aware of the true intentions championed by Nazi Party once theirfigureheads secured the base of institutional power. Initially, the Nazis manipulated Germanpublic opinion to sympathize with their actions simply because they maintained a vision thatwas preoccupied with securing the best interests of the fatherland. With each major revision,

the government would carefully disclose the nature of these developments in accordance withthe method in which they were actually incepted into the social mainstream. This in itself represents the prevalence of blind faith which is just as disastrous as the hardships of povertyand cases of outright societal neglect which derive from their empowered governments. Thedegree of blind faith that is invested into visionary movements and establishmentsdemonstrates the inevitable unintended consequences which emerge in the situationalaftermath of such an affair.Did the consciousness Western European civilization capitulate with the infrastructuraldestruction of Europe in the immediate aftermath of the Second World War? What would be afair assessment that evaluates the standing of Germany in the immediate present? Did the restof its society crumble, deteriorate, and recess upon its own foundation as a result of what wasoriginally thought to be the unimaginable consequences addressing the worst case scenario?Germany arose to be an instrumental contributor to the wests post war economicdevelopment, a leader in the international automobile manufacturing sector, and a pioneer inelectronic technology. If the people had absolutely no incentive to re-establish the sovereignfoundations of their societies, would the international mainstream witness the degree of German reconstruction replicated in the immediate present? In short, diversified perspectivescame together to uphold the common good of society.Violence is unfortunately an instrumental component that is relatively consistent withthe most generic form of human nature. Hardships are endured, atrocities are perpetrated,wars take the lives of countless innocents, but what does this fundamentally indicate about thefuture of human civilization? Any laymen point of view appreciates and understands thatprogress is merely a standard to measure civilizations development, not to be treated as aliteral degree of reality that upholds the infrastructural fabric of a given civilization. It is throughincentives that capitalize on progressive development which seek common ground throughcompromise to ideally initiate a standard of modern development. Regardless of any nihilist,pessimist, or narcissistic disposition, the vast majority of metropolitan areas throughout thedeveloping world retain an example of modern infrastructural development (I.E. electricity,running water, sewage systems).Surely, this exists as some form of humanitys accumulative societal progression. In theexample of colonialism, infrastructural contributions were made to every imperial subject of the respective empire in question. This refers to the establishment of school systems, plumbingsystems, and national electric grids. Does this represent a humanitarian sign of good will? Noteven in the slightest. In the actuality of this affair, the vision of colonialism sought to developthe imperial subjects, commonly designated as the third world, for the sake of achieving amore dominating degree of colonial rule over the respective colony. This in itself is an indicator
