in response to reader comment: Halloween in Britain.

That's outrageous! Halloween was my favorite time of year as a child. Fascism is hitting us from all sides, and governments are becoming more totalitarian and dictatorial everyday. Islamofascism is spreading like wildfire, and very few even seem to notice. People are giving up all their freedoms because they are naive and ignorant, and when they wake up, it may already be too late.

But how do we galvanize the people? What is the thing that would be the "tipping point?" It does seem like perhaps banning Islam would be a wake-up call for moderate Muslims, but the fanatical ones would probably just retaliate. It's a delicate situation.

I still say releasing thousands or even millions of satirical cartoons at once by many different sources might be a good wake up call for Muslims.
