It takes a nation to protect the nation

Is a moral assessment of evil bigotry?

In any threat situation fear exists. Fear of death and manner of death, of pain, of confrontation, of shouting bearded men from an alien culture. Fear exists and is useful. Fear of islam / sharia / jihad is not a phobia. The reaction is the key... cowardice is a common response, however bravery, action, insight, leadership are also possible responses to fear.

The other part of response is our lack of belief in ourselves, perhaps even an understanding of why we are not Afghanistan or Somalia or Zimbabwe or North Korea. PC - not speaking in facts, truths, data, history, nor asking difficult questions - is disarming us mentally and physically.

Is PC about not offending someone else, or not believing in yourself? Are we as a society so hollow, so empty? As Evan Sayet put it, for liberals "A moral thought is an act of bigotry." Is a moral assessment of evil bigotry? Can I not say that rape, murder and paedophilia are bad and wrong? That totalitarian government and intrusive, oppressive, discriminatory overlords are bad for humanity? That islam is not just different, but WRONG. Wrong on liberty, wrong on equality before the law, wrong on nuturing childhood development, wrong its restriction of art, music, human expression? Are my thoughts a crime against humanity? Or an assessment of a theo-political doctrine that is the antithesis of the Western Culture and American Constitution that I cherish?

AL - Yes, your post prompted me to write the above. I just also posted it to your link below. I visited the Politeia site, also. Thank you for the post. I had hope a few months ago...it has evaporated...

Almost unrelated - I am looking for "Kali Politeis" who posted from 2007-08. I don't know who (she?) is, but I would like to contact her. She drafted an Open Letter on islam and I have credited her in my pamphlets. Her blogspot site was disabled in '08, I think.

As it happens, that is very similar to the theme of an article I just posted here:

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)"
