It takes a nation to protect the nation

On Buhkti:
Guru Gobind Singh:
From one perspective life's unreal
And from that view has no appeal.

But from a second, life's composed
Of those brief days that are enclosed
Between the cradle and the pyre -
So we should oblige all desire
While we still have the time and chance,
For life is just a fleeting dance.

There is a third way you can choose
If misery you want to lose.
And that is that the one real Source
Dwells within all, in all its force.
The Spirit cannot separate
From that which it does penetrate.
So finding out the one true Source
Can yet be done within the course
Of carrying out one's daily dute,
While working hard and loving beauty.

... So be a hermit in your heart,
But in the world take active part.
Let the ashes of service 'pon your body be smeared;
Let desires for goods be the locks that you've sheared.
Let chasteness of heart be the way you abstain,
And from escape to your hut let you ever refrain.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

On Ahimsa:
Banda :
So how can one man kill his foe?
In doing that its his own person
The life of which he does then worsen.
For we cells of one body be;
If I hurt someone, that hurts me.

Guru Gobind:
You are right, in your way,
But deeper greater truths do lay.
For if a part be sore diseased,
The patient would be surely pleased
If the surgeon used a knife
To cut it out and save his life.
I am the surgeon for this nation,
And the sacred obligation
That I perform for its survival,
Is cutting away any rival
To its spriitual welfare -
I have to for we do not dare,
Ignore a symptom that would grow,
and create limitless great woe.
At some point we must draw the line
To prevent the further decline
Of principles that are required
To keep a culture's soul inspired.
For what's the use to be alive
If what has meaning can't survive?
...
Our life is not remembered by
Its length before we had to die,
But by the legacy we leave
And what we're able to achieve.
We all must die; we've come to go;
The point is, what did we sow?

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 of Movement
The government can import new voters - except where that changes the political demographics (i.e. electoral fraud by means of immigration)
4. SP Freedom from Over-spending
People should not be charged for government systems which they reject, and which give them no benefit. For example, the government cannot pass a debt burden across generations (25 years).
An additional Freedom from Religion is be deducible by equal application of law: "Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight - except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
