Reader comment on item: How the West Could Lose
in response to reader comment: George Orwell : "If there was hope, it must lie in the proles."

Dear Dr Pipes,

Let the word spread far and wide. Your reader who identified himself/herself as myth said it most beautifully when s/he said, "... the western world will once again need to rely on ordinary people, people who would not let islamists ban beer in pubs, want bikinis on beaches. People who wouldn't want to talk religion when there is football on television." Myth said it so beautifully. Indeed, we are tired of people whose definition of thought begins and ends at Islam. Religion must not be confined to dark closets but religion must surely be practiced with discretion, privacy, and meditative silence.

If I were to change one thing in what Myth said, I will drop the word "western" from his statement In today's world the sentence applies to almost everyone.
