Totalitarianism, its encroachment and opposition to it.
One year of Western escalation submission in Ukraine: what lessons?
The power of nuclear weapons lies not in their use, but in their possession, provided you maintain escalation dominance. Conceding escalation dominance reduces you to one of two states: ineffective nuclear weapons; or nuclear war. Unless you are a nihilist, your nuclear weapons become useless.
As Holocaust clouds gather again, EU Commission rushes to appoint “Islamophobia” Czarina
To be accused of “Islamophobia” is, by that very act, to be guilty of it, for it is an accusation against which there can be no defence, against which everyone has to constantly prove their innocence to avoid being accused.
And STILL they prattle on about a “women’s revolution” - Part 3
The Iranian regime is not against women per se; it is against everyone who is not the Supreme Leader. Everyone is subject to arbitrary control, and the arbitrary power of all strata ends up borne by women, in Iran instrumentalised in the hijab.
Christopher Hitchens’s “Axis of Evil” speech, Part 2: Iran
The Iranian mullahs lost so many young people in the suicide waves that they sent against Iraq, the sending of gangs of school children and teenagers to clear minefields on the Iraqi border. There's not enough room in large parts of Iran to bury the number of people they killed.
"Women Life Freedom" is not a feminist slogan and this is not a “women’s revolution.” The events unfolding in major parts of the Muslim world mean that after almost 200 years, the 1848 revolutions finally resume: the autonomous individual is far from dead, with a tip of the hat to George Orwell.
"Will Nupur Sharma ever lead a normal life? Should moderate Muslims speak up?" - A commentary - Part 3
Hindu talk of boycotting Muslim businesses is partly out of helpless despair, and partly out of an urgency to do something when they have no idea what to do. There is nothing either helpless or desperate about jihad murder. It is calculated, meticulously planned, and painstakingly executed.
"Will Nupur Sharma ever lead a normal life? Should moderate Muslims speak up?" - A commentary - Part 2
That the "innocent" Muslim barber might go out of business is just tough, but Hindus did not create Muslims and certainly did not teach them jihad. Besides, it is not unlawful to save yourself from a Muslim unless, of course, you are a dhimmi.
The ex-Muslim activist trap
Ultimately, ex-Muslim hatred of non-Muslim scholars of Islam comes down to a combination of envy and fear of being eclipsed. After all, such scholars, mostly academics, are highly educated and highly read, while most ex-Muslims are stunted from their experience under Islam.
Totalitarianism: we have become comfortably numb - Part 11
“The matter is summed up for every person alive: either submit, or live under the suzerainty of Islam, or die… Such, then, is the basis of the relationship between the infidel and the Muslim. Battle, animosity and hatred—directed from the Muslim to the infidel—is the foundation of our religion.” AQR
Totalitarianism: we have become comfortably numb - Part 10
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day-by-day and minute-by-minute. History has stopped.”
Totalitarianism: we have become comfortably numb - Part 9
Newspeak, propagandistic language characterised by euphemism, circumlocution, and the inversion of customary meanings. Coined by George Orwell in his novel Nineteen Eighty-four. Newspeak, “designed to diminish the range of thought,” the language of Big Brother’s enforcers. —Britannica (excerpt).
