The 4 Freedoms Library

It takes a nation to protect the nation


La 'fatwa' dell'Ayatollah Khomeini contro il romanziere britannico Salman Rushdie e la sua opera 'versetti satanici', è stata una doccia fredda, totalmente inattesa, imprevedibile, oltraggiosa, che ha creato subbuglio fra letterari, politici e religiosi.

Per molti, la cosa è stata un'evento eccezionale, il prodotto della mentalità estremista di una singola persona (l'Ayatollah): pochi hanno immaginato che questa 'fatwa' avrebbe alterato permanentemente la vita di Rushdie, e questa comunque meno di quanto non abbia fatto con i rapporti fra mondo islamico e Occidente.

Retrospettivamente, comunque, una persona è in grado di comprendere l'importanza dell'editto. Esso ha rafforzato la mano dell'Islam radicale, ed ha incoraggiato gli islamici ad imporre la loro volontà in Occidente, ed ha ispirato gli islamici in Occidente a far valere la loro mentalità.

Il caso di Rushdie, brevemente, è stato uno dei casi che più hanno influenzato l'andamento della nostra Era.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
