Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is motif that Bernal investigates in the three volumes of Black Athena. The first volume cause the most status quo ruckus, because Bernal tackles systematic "afro-asiatic" censorship. His project, first published 1987 by Rutgers, encouraged a vanguard of "multicultural" scholars like Hayes and Martin (above) or Graeber, who attained notoriety when he was dismissed from Yale for "wandering off the reservation".

Vagaries of Fashion: Abrahamic Faiths and Law

Bernal laid out as never before the historicizing, totalizing authority of european scholarship --especially among "classicists" who rejected "Ancient Model" historiography in order to define "Aryan" models of world history, humanity, civilization, and valid scientific, or empirical, "positivism" serving concomitant polemic serving divine and darwinian hierarchy of "races". Bernal does this by cross-examining three centuries of canonical literature and tuition sponsored by "gatekeepers" anchored to "Greek civilization". The other two volumes employ historical linguistic technique to translate archaeological materials and critique ethnographic syllabaries, cognates, and 'industry' persisting to this day. Now, note: Bernal's investigation does not reject out of hand all prior art. That's not his purpose; It is to restore "multicultural" material and authority to the body of knowledge of "humanity" which should be available to students.

The authors of this curiously titled essay "Tropical Depression" posit the ethical crisis, Who is disturbed by all manner of crises which "climate change" represents?
That depends, I suppose, on who has the time to investigate the "special case" --the parable-- of Pateh Sabally

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
