The New World.
Nativism and primitivism are about reaching out to the New World. We of the Old World are okay. Since Christopher Columbus discovered the New World in 1492, the people of the Old World have looked to and projected their hopes, dreams and aspirations onto the New World. The hypothesis of the reversal of divine merit of nativism and primitivism operates or thinks in the opposite or inverse direction of instincts or capitalism, because the poorer you are the more native you are. It looks to the poor, prehistoric and primitive instead of the rich, modern and advanced. The New World has 500 years of history while the Old World has much more, therefore who wants to see America in the afterlife? We see nothing but America and Hollywood in life, hence the afterlife will be different. Apart from the native Americans, most Americans have no prehistory, that is unless they look back to Europe and the Old World. We can practically give you the place and time of day when recorded history began for the New World, San Salvador, 12 October 1492.
The Old World.
The hypothesis of the reversal of divine merit of nativism and primitivism determines that in heaven the older you are the more famous and illustrious you are. Imagine being a real soldier who fought in the Battle of Hastings or imagine being an authentic Neolithic man. That must be unbelievable. Therefore, hallowed be your name, is for our Holy Father or prehistoric man because we do not and cannot ever know their names down here on Earth but only in heaven. Hence, on Earth as in Heaven. We look forward to seeing the Old World in the afterlife. We look forward to seeing Neanderthal, Palaeolithic man, ancient Egyptians, Israelites, the Greeks and Romans etc. Down here on Earth or in life the whole world wants to see or be in America and Hollywood. It is an illusion. Hollywood and movies are not real. Superstars are just rich. America is 500 years old, it is life, you get a bit wealthier and it is the animal instinct.
The hypothesis of the reversal of divine merit of nativism and primitivism works economically or socially in the inverse or counter direction to conventional social standards or norms. This means that it looks to or point in the direction of the poor, primitive and uneducated instead of the rich, advanced and famous. Instead of looking to or pointing in the direction of superstars, the Queen, Bill Gates and Apple Inc, it points in the direction of the lower class, destitute, ancient and prehistoric.
It is not just in an individual sense but also in a national sense. For example, instead of always looking to the new world super power, we look to the old power and glory of the Old Testament, such as Egypt, North Africa, the Near East and Israel, then the New Testament such as Greece, Italy, Britain then America etc. This all works because the poorer you are the more native you are.
Imagine if there had been no World Wars and Britain today still had a huge empire as well as all this amazing technology such as the internet, iPhone and iPad that we have today. It is not actually about that, it is about being in the past such as the Victorian period and still having all this technology we have today. It is not about bringing the power and the glory here it is about putting technology there.
The political power and the national glory.
The hypothesis of the reversal of divine merit of nativism and primitivism determines that the kingdom and the political power and the national glory should be Egypt’s and Israel’s, it certainly should be in the Old World.
It is the oldest story in the book. It is about who it was at the time, who was the power and the glory of the age, not who is the new super power in the present. Nativism and primitivism are the tale of ‘the wise man and the rich man.’
Is the power and the glory that Jesus Christ ascribed to the Father, some mysterious magic mumbo-jumbo or cosmic hocus-pocus that enabled Jesus Christ to perform miracles or is it more literal and down to earth than that? Is the power and the glory not just political power and national glory?
Was Jesus Christ a patriotic Jew? Did he not carry out his ministry for the Father or patriarchs and the ancient Egyptians and Israelites? Is the kingdom, the political power and the national glory theirs, now and for ever? Amen.
It is, however, well known, that the Gold-Coast, as well as other parts of the coast of Guinea, has been the source of much wealth; that it has given employment to many classes of our countrymen; and that it has contributed to support the great bulwark and glory of the Nation!
