Philip, I agree - EU madness must end- we have to make a stand , but we one big obstacle,
PC press and radio/tv. As long as the reporting is as biased as it is currently people will not kow about the damage beig done to EU and in my case , Sweden. This country is just full of " soft cheeses" as we say, IE. brainwashed people. I am ashamed nowdays to admit that I am swedish. think I will leave Sweden soon had enough of this stinking "paradise"!
Thanks Philip. You are right, this is about survival. I, like many others get burnout from time to time. Stupid liberals keep crawling out of the woodwork and are more of a hindrance than the moslems. There will be backlash to all of this. All these idiots offering a home to moslem migrants are really inviting trouble. If only we could get some right minded leaders in power.
I cannot help but believe that we are generally safer with our own kind. Oddly enough lately I have found myself defending Christians in some of my writing due to the fact that compared with other superstitions they are the lesser of the evils, and that is only due to the fact that they were diminished in power and influence during The Enlightenment.
I just realised that there is a button marked "View thread" which sticks both parts of the discussion together from both my wall and yours. So I can use that in future and post in the expected place :-)
A funny thing about Christians...So very many of them admire Ayn Rand and yet she was a hard core atheist and told us that selfishness is a virtue. The big difference between Atlas Shrugged and the Bible is that Atlas Shrugged was written to liberate with reason. The Bible was written to maintain ignorance and to rule the flock.
Philip, you speak of your art...do you do cartoons?
I have one in mind that I am incapable of rendering. I envision a woman coming through a door, torn dress, hair disheveled, black eye, sign flashing 'Malmo' in the background. She is saying 'Raped again! That is the third time this month!"
While I ponder a reply, ponder this. 10 or 15 minutes of a very old science fiction short story by Isaac Asimov. He had quite an imagination, and it goes right along with the mysteries you have questioned.
My outgoing state representative stood among peers and said 'Sharia is our greatest threat and we must address it now.' I helped to raise his level of awareness about islam/sharia. Unfortunately, he is leaving office. However, more and more are willing to discuss the issue. My county and state now have party platform planks rejecting the use of sharia or supporting ALAC - American Laws for American Courts. Dr. Bill Warner's two talks (on the home page at the moment) are a great introduction to islam... irrefutable facts that as he presents them are difficult to ignore or minimize. I fear so much damage has been done in so many places, it will be difficult to maintain or push back.
Perhaps if we can reach women oppressed by sharia we can begin to see resistance that grows in their own nations. The world's populations cannot keep shifting to and fro else no culture will be stable and governments will collapse or do what they usually do, become dictatorial.
Many thanks for this truly juicy selection of hatred and spite; I'm spoilt for choice but will probably select the most directly infidel-threatening. I am not sure of how the designations work for each sura or hadith. eg what exactly does 'Koran 3.28' mean, please? Also, I would like to give the source of the quotations in the leaflet, for example, which edition of the koran by which publisher. This is because I hope to convey a sense of transparency, veracity and honesty, so that mediafed readers who think criticism of islam is extremist bigotry can check that what is quoted is absolutely true. Can you help with this please?
I very much appreciate your erudition and knowledge of the Abomination and its Book of Lies. I would like to include some verses (suras?) in my next leaflet, but I don't know the Book of Lies well enough to select some really murderous and threatening stuff. I believe the Book has lots. Can you select a few please, and also, it would be helpful if you would like to do an outline text, maybe 500 words to inform ordinary people who only have the controlled media lies, revealing to them something of the the truth about islam. In the UK I feel it is of the utmost urgency to do something, however small to start with, to counteratct the ocean of media lies and disinformation to which the ordinary people are routinely and massively subjected. Please help. I can produce the leaflet in Norwegian if given the translation to copy. I will be posting all leaflets in the new leaflet room organised by Alan Lake.
I agree absolutely that laws have to be changed. Beyond that, I prefer not to speculate. In handling any complex problem, all you can do is the first stage, then have a review. We have no way of knowing what the world will look like in 10 or 20 years time, and what may be the best options, so I prefer to keep an open mind and focus on the immediate first steps.
Whatever happens, I hope all you Scandinavians can recover some of that Viking spirit you had long ago.
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)"
