Europe, like an alcoholic, is addicted to its sense of entitlement. Talk to Europeans and they will tell you they have had enough of war. They have seen the horrors of war. They lived with war on their soil, and they want no more of it.
But, this is not wholly the truth. Europeans do love war. Europeans created their own history. It is a history of blood and conquest, which led to land being divided up, until land no longer was the issue. The issue today is not land, it is the flow of goods and information. And now, the only reason Europe no longer wants to fight is because they have conquered all.
To be sure, they have done this while riding on the backs of Americans. Americans taught Europeans a better way to conquer, not with weaponry, but with ideas. Yes, America has fought wars. And, America has won wars. But, in no war, since the 19th century, did America take land, subject its people, and plunder its resources. Wars, from America's perspective, should only be fought for defensive purposes, as when an enemy (such as the Soviet Union) attempts to imperialize a nation or series of nations.
America's wars have been fought to ensure that the flow of goods and information would not be impeded by those who would take resources and keep them for themselves and themselves only. America's wars have been fought with the idea in mind that the free flow of capitalism is good for everyone, because the rising tide lifts all ships.
While Europeans have theorized about a world beyond war, a world where problems are solved through diplomacy rather than violent confrontation, America has truly worked to make this happen. Both the League of Nations and the United Nations were born of the work and ideas of American Presidents (Churchill also had quite a hand in the birth of the United Nations). The United Nations, while flawed from its outset, and likely defeated and irrelevant today, has been a noble attempt to move towards a world beyond war.
But, the truth is, our world will never project itself beyond war. Instead, we may learn to construct a sort of detente of devils for periods of time. But, the world will never move beyond war, because war is a natural consequence of the Free Will of human spirit. And, it is the promotion of Free Will which must be our highest priority, not the subjugation of those who would wage wars. To quell the will of those who would choose to fight for their rights would merely be another tyrrany, for who is to decide whose rights are reasonable, and whose are not?
We walk through history, saddled with the blessing and the curse of our will, and our will will always be the deciding factor in all human endeavor. We may sharpen our wills on the whetstone of morality, but we may not trust that our fellow man will do the same. And so we are left with will, and with will, war.
When war knocks on your door, there is no avoiding it, ultimately. There is only stalling. And stalling leads to only greater punishment, greater loss, more brutality, more death.
And, the lies which a people has to tell itself in order to forestall war, once it is inevitable, these lies are the lies that sicken the soul. They destroy the heart of mankind. They threaten to shake the foundations of Freedom.
What lies are these? What lies am I talking about?
Well, for instance, the Council of Europe has decided, on an official basis, seeminly, that Europe has no problem with Islamification. No. Those Sharia-espousing Jihadis, who would murder all homosexuals, apostates, and adulterers, they are not a problem for Europe. The problem instead is the very people who object to the Jihadis.
And, we are called "Bigots." Got that? Roll that around on your tongue for awhile. Bigots. The word begins with pursed lips, proceeds towards the uvula, almost inciting the gag reflex, before ending on a T. A cross on which we can be hung as the sacrificial lambs, to attone for the lies of the appeasers who are working so hard to bring about so much future death and destruction.
Last Tuesday the police authorities in Brussels, the "capital of Europe," brutally attacked peaceful demonstrators protesting the Islamization of Europe. Even the European Commission was shocked at the appalling behaviour of the Brussels police, but the officers seem to have their fans as well.
This is a press release (590/2007) issued on Tuesday by Terry Davis, the Secretary General of the Council of Europe.
Europe is threatened by bigots - not by Islam
Statement by Terry Davis, Secretary General of the Council of Europe, on the march "Against the Islamisation of Europe" today in Brussels
Strasbourg, 11.09.2007 - European values are under threat, say the organisers of a protest march under the banner "Against the Islamisation of Europe" which was due to place today in Brussels in spite of the ban by the city Mayor. The fact is that Europe and its values are indeed under threat, but the danger is not coming from Islam. Our common European values are undermined by bigots and radicals, both islamists and islamophobes, who exploit fears and prejudice for their own political objectives.
The self-proclaimed defenders of European values say that the Mayor has violated their rights under the European Convention on Human Rights. The freedom of assembly and the freedom of expression are indeed essential preconditions for democracy, but they should not be regarded as a licence to offend.
(Voltaire said, "I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it." - I thought that idea has always been considered the cornerstone of our Democratic principles.)
I will not enter into the discussion about whether the march should have been allowed or not, but I note that the protesters' reading of the Convention is selective to say the least. It is very important to remember that the freedom of assembly and expression can be restricted to protect the rights and freedoms of others, including the freedom of thought, conscience and religion. This applies to everyone in Europe including the millions of Europeans of Islamic faith, who were the main target of today's shameful display of bigotry and intolerance.
Just remember Belgium, you are first on our list. What does it say at the top of our page?
The Parallel Government Of The Entire World
All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same inalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.
Yes, I believe regime change will be necessary.
