There’s been talk of that recently on this blog – but let’s look at things more realistically. Well, anyway, I can use a modern analogy of what that world’s like. Well, I was in the Philippines a good deal of time – and indeed the whole “antebellum scene” is going on – as in everyone is kissing your white ass, you can get any girl you want – assuming it’s legal, generally everything is a paradise – for the white guy.
But what is the dark side? Well, if you get out of the range of the “nice ones” – surely people would rob you and kill you – so if you go there, be armed, if you plan to go out on your own. O.K., another bad side is all the nice attitude can get old and seem fake (maybe a lot of it is). In fact, you might long to be with people from your own culture – especially if you have no internet connection. You might even long to at least talk to a Korean or Japanese – cause at least they’re not kissing your rear.
But was this really the scene in the antebellum south? Well, sort of I guess. But remember, just like poverty is beating everyone in the third world, the slaves were under threat of torture and bullwhips. Now they were fully aware of this – even if they had a very low IQ. Well, I figure the IQ of the slaves was 60 to 70 (much of the third world now is in the upper 80s range).
So who else has thoughts on this paradise where the visitor is king (modern third world, antebellum south etc..)? Well, in a sense it was awesome for me – cause despite my shy personality and geeky looks – I don’t have to overcome anything and the women are hot. But then again, one time I went there I was built up like a bodybuilder anyway (lots of work while teaching ESL in Korea).
