The 4 Freedoms Library

It takes a nation to protect the nation

28th September 2012 near the US Embassy in Tokyo, Japan members of the Muslim community (mostly from Pakistan) gathered to protest (what they perceived) as slander against the Islamic faith in the form of the 14 minute YouTube trailer entitled "The Innocence of Muslims."

They demanded that the US government suspend the right of freedom of speech and conscience and called for the death of the film makers. 

A counter demonstration supporting the right to freedom of speech and expression was held nearby.


Odd that this happens in Japan but most of the signs are in English.  A Demo intended for an international audience which is mostly English speaking?

Not so odd if most of the protesters were pakistanis, as English along with Urdu is pakistans official language.


Japan usually has a sensible and strict immigration policy - what are these islamists doing there ? I trust the Japanese will do the wise thing and deport them back to Pakistan...or are they going as soft as the West ?

 Its hard to find the exact number of muslims in Japan. This seems to be about the best estimate.

These figures are from the 'Statistics of forgien residence'. It does not take into account

any japanese  converts. The Total number is quite small, so i would say its a case of a small

number of muslims making a great big noise, and getting all the attention. But isn't that how they


There was a counter demo near by. If anyone can find a vid of this it might put it in perspective.

Or maybe we're not allowed to see people protesting in favour OF free speech.

End of 2000






















Paul, thanks for the stats.  over a 5 year period that is over a 300% increase.  Seems like Muslims are not happy in their own sharia land.

Why have the Freedom Fighter demonstrators all got their faces covered or blurred out?  They can't possibly be afraid of the "Religion of Peace" can they?  What evidence is there of that?

Also, note how the Islamic spokesman twisted the question "Do you state that you will kill anyone who insults your religion?" into "We love our prophet so we are happy to die for him".

Methinks the interviewer went a little soft at that point.

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)"
