It takes a nation to protect the nation

Lieutenant Colonel Frederick Mackeson

A friend visited Canterbury Cathedral recently and sent this image. 

Below is the full text of the plague.  Some today would consider that the use of these words is clearly hate speech: ‘Mahometan Fanatic’ ‘foul assassin’.  And it needs to be removed at once, scrubbed clean from the wall and even our memories.  This sort of language is divisive and not conducive to community cohesion.

Since Victors write the history, if we do not win this war against Islam all this sort of history will be erased and even Canterbury Cathedral itself will be turned into a mosque or razed to the ground as an offense to Muslim sensitivities.


A monument to Frederick Mackeson depicts a scene and reads:

'To the memory of Frederick Mackeson, Lieutenant Colonel in the Bengal Army; Companion of the Bath: and Commissioner of Peshawur.

He was born at Hythe, in this county, September 2nd 1807.

Was educated in the King's School of this Cathedral, and died at Peshawur, September 14th 1853, of a wound inflicted by a Mahometan Fanatic.

The government of India thus mourned his loss: "The reputation of Lieutenant Colonel Mackeson as a soldier is known to and honoured by all: his value as a political servant of the state is known to none better than to the Governor General himself: who in a difficult and eventful time, had cause to mark his great ability, and the admirable prudence, discretion, and temper which added tenfold value to the high soldierly qualities of his public character.

The loss of Colonel Mackeson's life would have dimmed a victory, to lose him thus by the hand of a foul assassin, is a misfortune of the heaviest gloom for the government, which counted him amongst its bravest and best."

This monument was erected to his memory by his friends and admirers in India.'


More about this brave soldier here:

A Muslim assassin got close enough to him to stab him in the chest, after distracting him with a petition and pleading with him.  It reminds me of the tactic that Roshonara Choudhry used to attack Stephen Timms, MP, and almost murder him.

Lieutenant Colonel Frederick Mackeson, rest in peace.

Peshawar is never far from the news today. There was a jihadist martyrdom attack on All Saints Catholic Church in September 2013. This attack (87 killed) received little media attention as it took place at the same time as the Westgate Mall jihadist attack in Nairobi (67 killed). More significant was the Peshawar school massacre in December 2014 (132 children killed). What made this attack significant was the way it was later justified: The jihadists killed the children to spare them the temptations that would come their way when they grew into adulthood in this sinful world. They killed them because they were innocent. They killed them so they could go straight to paradise. It is likely we will hear more from Peshawar.

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)"
