It takes a nation to protect the nation

This is a speech from Adolf Hitler on January 30th 1942.  At this time, it was clear that the battle for Stalingrad had not succeeded.  The loss of Stalingrad and with it the 6th Army, came at the end of that year, in Winter, and the battle of Kursk in mid 1943.

I read somewhere that Hitler was the first leader to combine 5 powerful methods, which think were:

  • Military tactics (the swift take-over of France, for example)
  • Political manouvering (wins Germany by election, and tricks countries into not responding to his military build-up)
  • Propaganda
  • Motivation of the people (many did worship him)
  • Technology

I'm not sure about him being the first, because Gengis Khan had all (including Technology) but perhaps without propaganda.  

But whether or not Hitler was the most brilliant, it is clear that Hitler was a little bit crazy.  Some of the statements he makes in this speech are pure fantasy. Others are hopelessly egocentric.  Its a long read, but an educational one.  Read how he thinks that Britain and the US attacked innocent Germany!  It is mind boggling.

Those distinguished generals of the German army must have wondered what on earth they'd gotten in to.  Well, apart from Goehring of course, who seemed to be focussed on other things.

While checking the above, I came across this article, which re-appraises the battle of Kursk, using newly released documents.  Apparently, it wasn't the walkover for the Russians that we've been led to believe.  The panzers under Manstein could have gained a victory at Pochorovka, but once again, Hitler interfered and messed it up and ordered him to withdraw.

It is interesting that the information regarding German tank losses at Prochorovka has not been made available before now. Due to the lack of crucial primary-source information–especially the records of the II SS Panzer Corps on the Eastern Front–there had been no evidence to correct the erroneous accounts and impressions given in previous studies of the Eastern Front.

Waffen SS formations’ records of their Eastern Front operations were not declassified until 1978­1981. By that time, many of the major works about the Eastern Front had already been published. Later authors accepted the accounts of the battle as given in the earlier books and failed to conduct additional research. As a result, one of the best known of all Eastern Front battles has never been understood properly. Prochorovka was believed to have been a significant German defeat but was actually a stunning reversal for the Soviets because they suffered enormous tank losses.

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)"
