While writing a couple of longish posts, I took a break and completed one of my older short posts. This one is about a morbid but hilarious make work scheme that is very feasible.
What if we paid young people (especially non-whites) to dig up and destroy the graves of dead old white people?
Now some of you might see this as an attempt to desecrate the graves of dead old white people, but I don’t. Desecration involves damaging something to such an extent that it cannot serve its previous function, yet is still recognizable as such. So breaking gravestones, digging out corpses and piling them up in the center of the graveyard would be desecration. What I am proposing is however far more thorough.
The scheme starts with paying people to destroy gravestones and disposing them in a manner that no future archaeologist could piece back together. Then the workers will dig out the corpses of dead old white people and ‘process’ them such that they are unrecognizable at organic remains- perhaps with high temperature incineration. The next step involves digging and refilling the whole graveyard (disrupting the soil) to remove all tell-tale signs of its previous history. The area can then be planted with vegetation to make it contiguous with the surroundings. As you can see, the scheme involves much more than simple desecration which is fast and not that labor intensive. In contrast, the “grave annihilation” scheme is slow, methodical, thorough and labor intensive.
First you have to locate all of the graveyards and come up with the best plan of action for each class of graveyards. Some gravestones, mini-mausoleums and grave ornaments might be harder to destroy beyond recognition than others. Then there is the logistics of transporting the fragments for disposal.
While digging up corpses is easy, processing them requires transportation to sites with high temperature incinerators. Then there is the issue of quality control, as all of this effort would be for naught if the corpses cannot be reliably processed to a form unrecognizable as human remains. We also cannot ignore the logistics and planning involved in proper disposal of the residual solid end-products of the process.
Proper land reclamation requires a considerable amount of surveying, planning and execution. Removing all traces of its previous usage will involve a lot of digging of the whole area, removal and disposal of some soil that may contain identifying artifacts, transportation of equivalent soil from adjacent areas, putting back the soil layers such that they are contiguous with the adjacent areas and then planting vegetation that will blend with the surroundings.
Then there is the issue of removing all official records of the existence of these people from history. It will require a lot of manpower to go through all of the archives and records to ensure the removal of all official evidence of their existence from history. It will however not be necessary to rewrite history, as nobody will care about their existence (or non-existence) after a few years.
