It takes a nation to protect the nation

The essays and videos of Victor Davis Hanson are of such high quality that I'm going to collect some here. The will probably not get taken down, but they will become submerged in the masses of extra material over time, so this forum will act as a safe collection point.

The Odyssey of Western Civilisation - an 8-part lecture series

The Western Story - a brilliant exposition of how Western thinking, ideology and government evolved.

Victor Davis Hanson and the destruction of California.
Practical people with a sense of purpose created this wealth and well-being. But the unproductive idealists cannot understand that everything has to be paid for. Someone has to work hard to create it and these persons must also be responsible and care. Everyone must understand this purpose and sign up to the common objective of building and maintaining the nation state.

Just opening the borders of the country that your forebears built for you and cared about, will only work if those that enter the nation are nice, caring, hard-working and responsible people. If you import parasites and incompetents, or people that have nothing in common with you, the nation will decline.

California is what happens when you dream up concepts like multiculturalism and vibrant diversity, (transgenderism) what you get is ethnic and cultural conflict and the loss of common purpose. The socialist thugs just cannot understand that conservatives and capitalists also care about the environment and destruction of the planet.
The principle of absolute equality destroys so much because it is completely impractical.

Worth subscribing to. 

The original principle was 'equality of opportunity', which is true egalitiarianism.

The new progressive principle is 'equality of outcome', which is a  racist, supremacist ideology of oppression. It's all about grabbing as much as you can  of the spoils of society for your own tribe. BLM is a racial supremacist organisation.

Two brothers born into the same family, both equally endowed, One a success in life, the other a complete wreck. This I have experienced in two families that I have known intimately..I have no explanation as to why. The one contributes, the other a burden.

In Reagan's time the Left had not yet gone completely insane.

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)"
