Mainstream media perspective
The mainstream press refers to the altright as Nazis but they don’t delve into what this term means. They mean people who believe in white supremacy, in a supreme Aryan race, which is obviously what the genocidal Hitler believed in. They restrict the definition to this, but there is actually so much more going on. I would like to take this opportunity to explain in a little more depth what I mean by the Nazi mindset (Turn page over).
The Other Side
A Nazi mindset is the very opposite of what an Amphiist is. A Nazi is not just someone who believes in white supremacy. If you mock a person for being fat, and don’t believe they have a right to be respected, then to me you’re a Nazi. If you believe that only your religion is the correct one, then you could be a Nazi. If you think everyone who disagrees with you is going to hell, then that is part of the Nazi mindset. On the other hand, if you are an Amphiist, you believe that you don’t know why a person is fat. Maybe they have a thyroid problem. Maybe they feel more comfortable when they are larger. Maybe they are lazy or maybe they just have an incredibly slow metabolism. It might be their fault and it might not, but an Amphiist doesn’t pretend to know the difference. A Nazi mindsetted person doesn’t care what the reason is. S/he (but usually he) just forges ahead with judgment, ridicule and mockery.
And an Amphiist, on the subject of religion, believes that there is truth in all religions, especially when it comes to how we treat others. We can reach our individual potential by allowing others the chance to reach their individual potential. Maybe that means they are fat. Maybe it means they’re a different religion. But let’s all be our best selves.
