Latest in the "From Meccania to Atlantis" Series
Having cited previously to this continuing big-picture series in the Brussels Journal, Vanderleun's post of the latest entry reminded us to provide not only that link:
Part 14 (²): Freiheit 451; excerpt:
Freedom is no more than a piece of combustible paper: a forbidden book, a speech draft in longhand, a film no longer printed on combustible stock but still setting minds aglow. All tyrannies in recorded history have sought to burn, confiscate and banish that paper or other media that carried the ideas of liberty, and to burn or banish the authors. Nowadays, such tyrannies exist primarily in Dar al Islam and in its lesser franchises of elective dhimmi socialism (abbrev. dhimmisocialism) in Western Europe and Canada and in nascent forms in the United States and Australia....

To understand the magnitude and intensity of the struggle before us, one must understand that the War on Guns and other traditional American freedoms is part of a massive global conflict between the individual and the Collective, be that Collective defined in the language of politics or of alleged "religion".
The losing battle being fought in Europe by Geert Wilders and others (see this speech by Wilders and Wilders' movie Fitna) is precisely the battle we here in North America face, even if we delude ourselves into believing that things have not deteriorated to that point yet.
It is a Holy War that is being waged across the planet by the Collective against the individual, with all of the terror, death, slaughter, and destruction that such catastrophes always bring.
Do you understand yet?
Are you willing to fight in that manner?
