How Soon Is Now?
We are the sons and heirs of a shyness about defending our own beautiful culture of freedom. And, our shyness is criminally vulgar.
I'd like to say that which is forbidden, the greatest blasphemy of the social consensus. Before I do I want to say that prefer democratic resolution of issues confronting our society. However, neither the Universe nor human history (nor for that matter the Christian and Jewish religions) guarantee that every issue can be resolved peaceably. We may get ourselves into situations in which the only solution is to fight.
Europe is now in such a situation--a situation that would have been entirely avoidable if they had thought about morality as people producing the best arguments for a political course, instead of being fundamentalists of the Church of Human Rights.
Yes the Church of Human Rights is certainly right that Hitler was a horrible man, but the Church someway ignores Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Paul Pot and many other communist leaders were as evil as Hitler. Yes, the Church of Human Rights is right that the Europeans shouldn't have had pograms against the Jews in the middle ages. But the Church of Human Rights is wrong to never consider the question of what if Jews really went around poisoning wells and killing Christian children to use their blood to make matzos? The Christian would have been right to kill the Jews, then. It is not wrong to kill off groups that behave barbarically.
What is a gay European boy of age twenty to think now? By the time he reaches middle age, his country may well be muslim and his government may want to stone him to death. Why shouldn't he fight like a man now, rather been lead away to death like a sheep in his middle age? Or why shouldn't an European girl decide she would rather kill than being made a second class citizen under Sharia? Why should a young Christian permit his religious heritage to be thrown away for the sake of political correctness? If Christianity is the truth, shouldn't it be worth fighting for it against the followers of a murderous cult? The Europeans now have the choice of preserving Europe or committing suicide.
You see, we've already waited too long
But not all our hope is gone.
The future will be interesting.
