trends and solutions
If any .. i find this article extremely difficult to write (as opposed to the 'divinely inspired' physics articles which seemed to flow from my fingertips). It seems a tremendous amount of contemplation and conversation is required for such an endeavor. Global trends and (any) solutions offered seem dismal, dark, and depressing. Watch some of Pat Condell's favorite videos on youtube to glimpse why this is so..
The EU appears to be fragmenting as i write. The UN has not been heard from since the American invasion of Iraq. It appears to be disenfranchised. The 'Islamic consortium' (the nations largely Islamic) seem hell-bent on war with 'the West' (largely European, American,..): "convert or destroy" (which incidentally is the same motto of the evil empire overthrown in The Chronicles of Riddick). Now i understand my fascination with that movie.
Too bad Furyans are only fictional.
We could use a few just about now.
The sad reality is: we are on the verge of WWIII with Islamic nations. If you understand the intent of the Islamists, you understand we are to be converted to Islam or crushed under their soldiers' boots. i'm NOT saying this to polarize people; i'm simply stating facts.
True, there's a difference between Islam and Islamist, but the sad truth is Islamic populations are pawns and money-supply for Islamists who are at war with the West.
"They will convert you or they will kill you."
This is no overstatement/exaggeration. Islamists will subdue the West or they will destroy it.
The 'weakness' of the West has been our tolerance and freedom to worship .. This has allowed massive influx of Muslim populations into the West, Islamification of Western local populations, and a general dominance of Muslim values. We condemn any identification of Muslim crimes as 'racism' similar to anti-Semitism and so Muslim crimes against women, in particular, are hidden from public view. Sharia subdues/subjugates women so allowing Sharia in the West only reinforces Islamist agenda.
If the West passes laws and enforces them prohibiting Sharia or prohibiting immigration of Islamists, they will wage war on us. This is a certainty .. There are only two ways to 'gain their respect': 'turn the other cheek' (allow them to walk all over us in the short term - showing them our long-term convictions) - or - engaging them on the battlefield. The first option requires a tremendous amount of self-discipline which i doubt the West possesses. That leaves option two.
Now we arrive to a point in the discussion where war seems the only realistic option. The question is: who strikes first? Wake up America - they already did on 9/11.
The problem is not their distributed nature. The problems are: we are on the verge of globalization - and - we can no longer afford a standing army periodically positioned overseas. We simply cannot afford it.
What do we do?
Another problem is the fragmentation of America. Many blacks have embraced Islam as a way to unify against white-oppression. Expedient but divisive. Race riots in Miami between Hispanics and Blacks: inevitable power struggles but again, divisive/destructive .. Any time we riot allowing one 'special interest group' to display dominance, we destroy America. The downfall of America will be the attempt to pander to all special interest groups (Black, Asian, Hispanic, gay,..) We cannot hope to satisfy all special interest groups - they all have an isolated set of needs/demands which are mutually exclusive. Let me repeat this because of the fundamental importance: we can NEVER satisfy all special interest groups; they have conflicting demands.
So America is doomed to:
1. war with Islamic nations or
2. disintegration within or
For instance, if Obama was assassinated, this would spark another Civil War. Especially if the perpetrators were white-supremacists. This would be the perfect opportunity for Islamist nations to attack America. Attack us while we're weak and disjointed.
What can we do?
Listen/read carefully: we .. must .. unify. This is the only solution. Black, white, Asian, Hispanic, gay, Muslim, Christian, Jew,.. If you are American, you MUST unify. Or, you will be destroyed by Islamists. This is a fact. This is the only time i will say/write this: unify or die.
