I have tried to read philosophy but found it too long, boring and irritating. I do like what I have heard about Nietzsche though.
Everything can and should be explainable on one A4 page.
I have not heard of Foucault or Derrida.
"You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist."
Friedrich Nietzsche
No one gets angry at a mathematician or a physicist whom he or she doesn't understand, or at someone who speaks a foreign language, but rather at someone who tampers with your own language.
Jacques Derrida
Power is not an institution, and not a structure; neither is it a certain strength we are endowed with; it is the name that one attributes to a complex strategical situation in a particular society.
Michel Foucault

Nothing has any intrinsic meaning
Don't go all post-modern and structuralist on me Philip! I hate Foucoult and Derida :-)

I hate anything like Islam or mass-immigration that destroys my tranquility.

Jesus this and Jesus that ad nauseam.
Every individual should ask itself, what do I believe in, what has meaning for me?
Nothing has any intrinsic meaning. Meaning is something that we ourselves give to things.
We choose or are given our beliefs.
What is the meaning of life? is a meaningless question. Life has no meaning other than the meaning that we give to it.
We are just organisms like any other except that we have this large brain that makes us prone to fantasies. I am only interested in my own well being, also in human relations. At the same time I feel that I can be selfless at times.

1984 Love only big brother.

The Christians have also destroyed human love. They put love of Christ/God above everything else.

From my personal experience of a devout Christian I would describe Christians as fucked up by their faith. They interpret everything according to the rules they choose from the Bible. Generally sex is dirty and something to be ashamed of. Marriage is the only legitimate place for sex in moderation. Desire for just about anything except to get to Heaven is sin. They also have an unresolvable conflict with science especially evolution theory.

I do not claim to understand the concept of human love, I would say it was to like someone and be loyal to them before every other consideration. Such as feelings for a spouse or your own children. However feelings can change.

Excellent podcast on his new book 
Catholic Current | The Eastern Defenders of Christendom (Raymond Ibrahim) 11/17/22 on Podbean, check it out!

We welcome back author and scholar Raymond Ibrahim to continue the conversation about the defenders of Christendom from Islamic invasion. What can the unsung heroes from Eastern Europe teach us about the defense of the rights of God?

The famous SF movie Forbidden Planet has an interesting and truthful theme- that the inherent Evil in humanity will always come to the surface. Which to me means that the social-democrat's dream of the perfect society is an illusion. The reality is that there are always going to be people that wish us harm or that are indifferent to our wellbeing.
Every Nation is best served by selfishness and closed borders. (Just look at all of the bombings going on in Sweden). All we can do is to take care of the people we care about that are closest to us.
Buy the way, sickeningly, I noticed that in the new James Bond movie 007 is a black woman. Part of what I call the culture of surrender. A symbol so dear to the white male has to be shit on.
The advertising industry, I notice also, is now showing racially (mixed) or sexually neutral persons.

There are many forms of mental disorder in our society Antony. All sorts of delusions. I guess they have always been there, but now the variety has increased. Almost any sort of nonsense you can imagine has someone that believes in it. The list is endless. I maintain my sanity and believe only in the solid physical reality of what really exists, what can be proven to exist or be true. No dragons, extra genders or supernatural beings. Voodoo, spells and prayers- and so on etcetera ad infinitum.

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)"
