Anyone remember creeping socialism?

Reader comment on item: Don't Bring That Booze into My Taxi

Submitted by Darwin Barrett (United States), Oct 10, 2006 at 19:47

This is creeping Islamism. The tactic, which worked so well for socialism, is to make innocuous yet insidious little demands that encourage consessions to established standards until society becomes acclimated to a new code of conduct. That is how the left got control of the education and media. After they achieved critical mass, they started locking out opposing (Conservative) views which had been the mainstream. Islam will do the same and 100 years from now they will be the dominant culture. Most people will never see it coming because it will evolve over several generations. Welcome to life.
