entropy is at work

Reader comment on item: Muslim Europe

Submitted by Maurice Cohen (France), May 11, 2004 at 20:43

Europe is actively contributing to its own suicide, while Islam is hammering at its door. To name but a few causes:
- The blindness, ambitions and irresponsibility of some leaders, as Jacques Chirac.
- Some economic pretexts: oil, islamic vast markets etc...
- "Humanitarian" leftist philosophy: equality, human rights, amnesty ijnternational, political and social movements whose one aim is "equality" and the destruction of the capitalist system, where "some" have while they havn't.
- Democratie, which forbids "civilised" countries to take strong measures to defend themselves from ithe islamic invasion, and to succumb to the blackmail of the "masses", of the left. Under democracy, your triumph is prepared in bed.
It's the philosophic aspect of this situation which is most important.
The trend is a rigorous determinism, which commands the degradation of energy, the "fall", the mixing of races, the transfer of knowledge, le "progress" etc...

Only by some wild imagination can one understand. Imagine a hitlerite regime, without antisemitism and without bellicism. It couldn 't happen. Defending yourself is prohibited by external forces and by interior forces. Your own people are askiing for a universal fraternity. The masses have not the slightest idea of what the future will be, but they "act", they are active. They strive for the immediate benefit and, especially, they are ready to sacrifice their liberty for a fake equality.
