It takes a nation to protect the nation

Rodney Atkinson argues that the EU is a continuation of the fascist project.  After WW2 the western elites have created a cartoon version of "fascism" - one that is racist and right-wing, whereas in truth Mussolini's fascism was supported by jews, and was considered to be socialist and progressive throughout the 1920s.   It is the cartoon conception of fascism that allows the elite to disguise the fact that the west has been coming inexorably more fascist for 50 to 70 years.

Mosley's British fascists are alive and well. And they are revelling in the fact that Mosley's 1932 vision of a single European Nation is coming into being.

Fascism vs. Capitalism: The Central Ideological Conflict of Our Times

“Fascism” has become a term of general derision and rebuke. It is tossed casually in the direction of anything a critic happens to dislike.

But fascism is a real political and economic concept, not a stick with which to beat opponents arbitrarily. The abuse of this important word undermines its true value as a term referring to a very real phenomenon, and one whose spirit lives on even now.

Fascism is a specific ideology based on the idea that the state is the ideal organization for realizing a society’s and an individual’s potential economically, socially, and even spiritually.

The state, for the fascist, is the instrument by which the people’s common destiny is realized, and in which the potential for greatness is to be found. Individual rights, and the individual himself, are strictly subordinate to the state’s great and glorious goals for the nation. In foreign affairs, the fascist attitude is reflected in a belligerent chauvinism, a contempt for other peoples, and a society-wide reverence for soldiers and the martial virtues.

Lew Rockwell, in this new volume, examines the starkly contrasting systems of capitalism and fascism, noting pro-fascist trends in recent decades as well as the larger historical trends in the United States and internationally.

In Section One, Rockwell focuses on the nature of fascism and its influence in Western society, with a focus on American political and economic institutions.

In Section Two, Rockwell examines capitalism as the enemy of, and antidote to fascism.

Combining economics, history, and political philosophy, this book doesn’t just provide a diagnosis of what ails American and Western society, but also sheds light on how we might repair the damage that has been done, and with the help of the intellectual work of great minds like Murray Rothbard and Ron Paul, we might as a society shed the fascism of our times and look to freedom instead.

Joe, maybe the Russians are confident of stopping any terrorist attacks at Sochi because everyones away fighting in Syria. Although if a bomb does get through and kill a few, what would be the worst that could happen to Russia? They aren't due to get the Olympics for a while anyway. Britain went ahead with their games. They put some missile batteries on roofs and a Frigate on the Thames. The Olympics has had death at its games before and survived. Money gazumps lives every time.

The Russians have had their Olympics boycotted before, but I can't see that happening this time and I can't see Russia calling off a 50 billion $ investment.  If there's a terror attack, it won't be anything to do with Islam, our PM will make sure of that, it won't be anything to do with Russia, they've done all they can, (Like the UK did), to safe guard the public. And it won't be anything to do with the Olympic committee, they've taken all the advice and gotten all the assurance's they can.

So with no one except western foreign policy to blame for any attack, Islam can't lose. The cost to keep the games safe will be astronomical, the fear installed will be huge, but more importantly the Audience will be the biggest ever for a winter Olympics as  the world tunes  anticipating a bit of world class Carnage.

How can people not see the mile-wide gap between what the Labour Party purport to believe, and the actions of their MPs?

Paul Golding, leader of the Britain First political party, is banned from entering the whole of Greater London.

- Not allowed to enter the Greater London area
- Not allowed to engage in any political activity, including stalls, demos and meetings

This is fascism.  When did Britain engage in these kinds of bans in the past?  During WW2, Oswald Mosley was interned without trial.  And that internment was the reduction of a supposedly non-fascist state to fascist behaviour.  Churchill's government had (a fig-leaf) of an excuse: it was war time (never mind that Mosley had said before WW2 that, should war break out, every able-bodied member of his party should join up and fight for Britain).

Are we at war now?  How is it that these anti-democratic measures (some people have been given 10 year banning orders, preventing them from attending ANY political demonstrations).

Moreover, the hand-maidens of fascism (the humarn rights lobby), say nothing.  They are behaving just like the Red Cross did when visiting concentration camps.  The Red Cross at least had the excuse: "we were deceived on the day".  Organisations like "Liberty" have no excuse.

Sweden is the closest thing in Europe to a fascist state.

Marine Le Pen demonstrates that whilst the Front National may have dropped their jew-hatred, they are still a fascist, anti-capitalist party.

Fascism claims that the leaders of special interest groups (corpora) must make decisions, not the Demos.  

We British are "too ignorant" to be allowed a referendum on the EU.

This is an extraordinarily fascist tactic.

At the back of the Budget book, there’s this chilling paragraph: “The Government will modernise and strengthen HMRC’s debt collection powers to recover financial assets from the bank accounts of debtors who owe over £1,000 of tax.”

Make no mistake, this is a huge change – a "power grab" according to At the moment, if HMRC want to seize your property or cash, they have to take you to court, win and then get a court order. Now, after a couple of warning letters and a phone call, they apparently can do it at the flick of a switch. Crucially, there’s no safeguard built into this system – where's the appeal process?

To repeat, if HMRC decide you owe them cash, they just take it. If you haven't managed to reach agreement with them, then you'll just wake up one morning, check your bank account, and find the money's gone.

Did Hitler or Mussolini even have the power to do this?

I happened to see the first part of this movie tonight.

It's from 1985, and the strange thing is: in the first 30 minutes, the characters are discussing the similarities between communism and national socialism.  Apart from rare and controversial opinion pieces which have appeared e.g. in The Telegraph in the last 18 months, in my adult life it was almost unheard of for anyone to discuss these similarities.

Which makes it look like the cartoonification of nazism has been going on most intensely sometime after the mid 1980s.

Communism and National Socialism and International Socialism are all variants on the same theme, because they spring from the same sickening conceit and obsession, that:

I know best what is best for everyone, and I know how to make it happen.  
So my government will be free to take a big role in interfering with society and changing its historically derived character.

Whereas Conservatism and especially Libertarianism spring from the belief that:

We all have different ideas on what is best for everyone (in a world with limited resources), and even if we agreed, I'm not sure how to make it happen, because its extremely hard to know the long term effects, and side effects, of interfering with a society.
So my government will be limited to the smallest possible role in interfering with society and changing its historically derived character.

I'm just reading a book called Ameritopia (loaned to me by an insightful friend), which covers exactly this topic.  It's another of these weird experiences, because it is like reading a book which says everything I would say about the subject.  Although the author knows far more about American constitutional law than I do.

That Americans are capable of writing such books, getting them published, and the books remaining in bestseller lists for months, shows that they ONLY hope for western civilisation lives in the US.  Sadly, Mark Steyn thinks that hope has died.

I think I will have to get hold of a copy of The Federalist Papers.

You can read them online.  I've read a few of them.  Here's 2 different formats:

The Fascist Manifesto

"The Manifesto of the Fascist Struggle" (Italian: "Il manifesto dei fasci di combattimento"), commonly called the "Fascist Manifesto", was a document first published on June 6, 1919 in Benito Mussolini's newspaper Il Popolo d'Italia ("The People of Italy").

Translated text of the "Fascist Manifesto"

Italians! Here is the program of a genuinely Italian movement. It is revolutionary because it is anti-dogmatic, strongly innovative and against prejudice.

For the political problem: We demand:

a) Universal suffrage polled on a regional basis, with proportional representation and voting and electoral office eligibility for women.

b) A minimum age for the voting electorate of 18 years; that for the office holders at 25 years.

c) The abolition of the Senate.

d) The convocation of a National Assembly for a three-years duration, for which its primary responsibility will be to form a constitution of the State.

e) The formation of a National Council of experts for labor, for industy, for transportation, for the public health, for communications, etc. Selections to be made from the collective professionals or of tradesmen with legislative powers, and elected directly to a General Commission with ministerial powers.

For the social problems: We demand:

a) The quick enactment of a law of the State that sanctions an eight-hour workday for all workers.

b) A minimum wage.

c) The participation of workers' representatives in the functions of industry commissions.

d) To show the same confidence in the labor unions (that prove to be technically and morally worthy) as is given to industry executives or public servants.

e) The rapid and complete systemization of the railways and of all the transport industries.

f) A necessary modification of the insurance laws to invalidate the minimum retirement age; we propose to lower it from 65 to 55 years of age.

For the military problem: We demand:

a) The institution of a national militia with a short period of service for training and exclusively defensive responsibilities.

b) The nationalization of all the arms and explosives factories.

c) A national policy intended to peacefully further the Italian national culture in the world.

For the financial problem: We demand:

a) A strong progressive tax on capital that will truly expropriate a portion of all wealth.

b) The seizure of all the possessions of the religious congregations and the abolition of all the bishoprics, which constitute an enormous liability on the Nation and on the privileges of the poor.

c) The revision of all military contracts and the seizure of 85 percent of the profits therein.

British fascist Oswald Mosley was the first to come up with the idea of a United States of Europe.  The major difference between fascism and other forms of socialism/communism was:

1) a desire NOT to wipe out an entire economic class (the bourgeoisie)

2) nationalism

3) militarism

There's plenty of socialists/communists in the lead positions of the EU.  The only thing that has most marked the EU out as not being fascist was the lack of 2) and 3).  Well, no more.

Does any other European parliament ask its members to dress in this kind of nationalistic/militaristic regalia?

"Why shouldn't our MEPs dress up too? This is the world's first transnational parliament and it is special," said an official.

Remember who came up with the idea of "Europe a Nation". Oswald Mosley.

Books on the EU and fascism.




So, some people have been pointing out this association for the best part of 20 years.

British parents now convicted criminals for taking their children to Australia on holiday.

Meanwhile, when my family were the victims of a violent racist assault, the police would do nothing.

170,000 victims of FGM, and not one parent criminalised over that.  If we assume that there were 2 parents involved in these FGM cases, then that's 340,000 parents.  And not one of them got a criminal conviction for FGM.

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)"
