It's Not a Defeat of Culture that is Required - The Battle is the Defeat of the Threat to Culture

Reader comment on item: Israel's Partial Victory
in response to reader comment: How do you defeat a culture?

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Nov 20, 2022 at 14:30

True culture is a refinement of the pursuits in societal settings where the petty clashes of envy are diminished and endeavors of peace seeking result in everyone participating to the common benefit of all.
In contrary ambitions of empire, Islam does none of that. Neither did previous empires. Find the cause of the threat, get everyone to agree to eliminate that threat and then, peace might break out.
Tell that to the merchants of death, who are the definition by which enemies of cultures thrive.
This is the source of the lawlessness seen today, defiant to law and order and in rebellion to the Supreme Deity that established it before the counting of time. Defeat of the threat is coming; but who is ready for that?
