Call for Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II, to wear the veil, plus. I'm serious in my title, Mr. Phllips is too polite or misinformed and perhaps writing to him will wake him up. Poor Corgis too btw. See More
As there is newly a little sign saying halal-certified in my local Snax (a sandwich and overpriced pie or samosa take-away sort of place) I queried it and told the burlyish new manager all about the halal process. But as he tried interrupting alot and then he offered to pass on my letter of complaint but didn't want to hear me out i said I'd write in myself to Snax head office. Kosher is carried out with vets' instruction which Snax burly guy didn't know. But I spelled out, after I got burly…See More
"you draw the line where you like. my brother has no intention of hanging about when his MS kicks in. why is this such a big deal to you? I am not asking rhetorically but am confused as what made you want to write me a long reply."

"it is an entirely personal choice - not two cases are identical - which some would say is a refreshing change from state orchestration aka principles such as our old friend mult-culturalism as distinct from personal freedom"

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 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 of Movement The government can import new voters - except where that changes the political demographics (i.e. electoral fraud by means of immigration) 4. SP Freedom from Over-spending
People should not be charged for government systems which they reject, and which give them no benefit. For example, the government cannot pass a debt burden across generations (25 years).
An additional Freedom from Religion is be deducible by equal application of law: "Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight - except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
