Well put - you really should be writing speeches for Rabbi Shifren and others! And as regards New Labours undemocratic, even totalitarian immigration deception - I'd like to see Blair done for electoral fraud.
Hi Sarah, I think what you do (though I could be wrong) is when you sign in on the home page you'll see a menu along the top and one's got a typewriter saying 'add content'. As I say I could be wrong so apologies if I'm passing on my hopeless technical skills. :)
Hi Sarah, I have to say the comment you have left for Alan Lake is excellent. Would you consider putting this up as a discussion or blog because I think it should be widely seen? you've made some really excellent points and connected some really interesting stuff up.
your youtube offering/link reminds me of this quote:
‘Human groupings have one main purpose: to assert everyone’s right to different, to be special, to think, feel and live in his or her own way. People join together in order to win or defend this right. But his where a terrible, fateful error is born: the belief that these groupings in the name of a race, a God, a party or a State are the very purpose of life; and not simply a means to an end. No! The only true and lasting meaning of the struggle for life lies in the individual, in his modest peculiarities and in his right to those peculiarities’
Vasily Grossman, Life and Fate, p. 230
This quote begins a history book by Richard Overy, called ‘The Dictators – Hitler’s Germany Stalin’s Russia'

Welcome to 4 Freedoms! (currently not admitting new members)
Just fill in the box below on any 4F page to be notified when it changes.
Muslim Terrorism Count
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 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)"
