The 4 Freedoms Library

It takes a nation to protect the nation

This is not about kuffarphobia specifically, but is a general comment about the reduction in freedom of speech, both because of the witch hunt syndrome, but also now because of people giving up. It is in line with Joe's observation of us being in the 'post-dialogue world'.

The witch hunt mentality of social media and mainstream media has now reached such a level, that clever people are now refraining from making any comments at all on anything.  

Kate Winslet 'not bothered' by age gap debate:

Winslet, however, declined to be drawn on the issue, despite having claim to being no less marginalised. ...

"I think it's such a big debate and it's probably quite dangerous for me to comment because it will be taken and blown up as these things do tend to be.

"With something like that, you can't change that ever-evolving discussion. It doesn't matter what I say, what you think, what the next person thinks - it is the way it is.

I saw other examples previously but didn't capture them.  Then you can look at Victor Hanson's blog and see that people are giving up responding.  Previously, there would be around 10 comments after every essay.  But for the last 4 essays, there have been no comments at all.  Compare these 4 with all the previous ones and you will see the difference.

People were still commenting on the preceeding two, for example:

http://victorhanson.com/wordpress/?p=8742#more-8742

It seems like people are also giving up because they despair of the political process.  After all, when the fascist left are controlling all the levers, what's the point?

Future generations will look back, like Stalin's downtrodden serfs, with astonishment at the way we fearlessly gave our opinions before, confident of impunity.

Yes Joe, this supposed philosopher, who certainly knows about Gramsci's long March thru the institutions, doesn't seem to grasp that he is now a powerless minion in the face of those institutions, and that they aren't going to just cede power to him after waiting 50 years to get it. He doesn't realise just who irrelevant his fancy arguments are, to those people.

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)"
