Western Culture is the Culture Which Refuses to be Defined!

 

Multiculturalism, postmodernism, globalism or whatever headline name you wish to give the New Age culture, the main canon is we shall not live by the old rules. When asked by what rules these New Agers plan to live by, the most given answer is whatever I feel like at the moment. They will fight any attempt to name them or give their lives any set of defining terms, as they will oppose them simply such that they are seen in opposition to any definition. They claim they are free of such ideas as rules, limits, morals, ethics, morality or etiquette and that they make it up in the moment. This in the moment is the closest they come to any mantra and perhaps they are the personification of the old 1960’s rallying call of, “If it feels good, do it.” That was the call for living in the moment from that era and today’s millennials appear to be living out the hippie culture without realizing it. The problem with having an entire generation actually living within such a culture driven purely by the hippie ethos should frighten everybody when considering what the immediate future will become as these youth grow into the positions of power. But there is another alternative which is being proposed in Europe to replace the questionable future by providing the people with an ironclad and rigid ethical system which defines exactly how to perform every single action and decision in life. That is perhaps more than equally frightening as what will happen and which side will win when those living lives of total freedom with no limits or rules come into conflict with those whose lives are defined down to the last little action as which hand to use when eating and every act more complicated than that?

 

Islam is coming to Europe and it is coming in its most violent and restrictive variety. Islam will demand complete and total surrender to Allah and to his laws in the Quran. There will be no deviation from the rules, there will be no alteration of the rules, there will be only one set of rules and the Imam will dictate these rules from the laws written in the Quran and the Hadiths. Everyone must conform to the rules, both Muslim and Infidel. The Infidel will accept the classification as Dhimmi and live under the restrictions which are imposed upon all Dhimmi and act as subordinates to Muslims. Women must know their place, only travel outside the home in the company of a male relative be it husband, son, brother, uncle or other male relative or responsible male related in some manner. Women must remain veiled and dressed humbly and modestly and walk subjectively steps behind their male escort. Husbands are to strike wives in such a manner so as not to leave any permanent marks if she requires corrective influence as she is not sufficient subordinated or acts in some other undesirable manner. And a host of further rules with the eventual demand that all Dhimmis face a decision of conversion to Islam or being put to death, often by horrific means. Even should Dhimmi accept conversion, they will be constantly monitored closely seeking to note any action which might indicate that their conversion was done under false means and were not true in their faith. Such actions would result in torture to force a confession followed by execution as described above. All followers of Islam must observe the Five Pillars of Islam (see image below). The central demand of all Islam is also the meaning of the word Islam, surrender, as one is required to surrender their lives to Islam and follow all that Muhammad demands. This brings up the question of the contradictory laws, rules, customs and dictates found within the Quran. These are settled through Naskh (نسخ), an Arabic word usually translated as “abrogation”, the principle where an older verse is superseded by a new verse which contradicts or alters the initial verse in the Quran, or within the Hadiths. This is a major principle which would take too long to go through in this article but an introduction with multiple links in the comments section provided by our readers give more information and flush out this concept and the need thereof. The main concept of Islam which contradicts the lifestyle of the millennials is the demand that one surrender to Islam and its strict obedience of a rigid structure, the opposite of their beliefs.

 

Five Pillars of Islam

 

The problem which will soon confront the millennials is that their belief that little is worth fighting over will face pressure from Islam that they dedicate themselves to a set of strict rules even should they resist conversion. The millennials will not accept living as a Dhimmi any better than they would accept living as a Muslim. Their freedom filled lifestyle will not be accepted by Islam and this will place the two in direct opposition and then they will be faced with their worst nightmare, having to decide if anything in life, including the right to live as one chooses, is worth struggling, even fighting, to retain that which they have over the invading demands of Islam. Facing the choice of fight or flight many may decide on flight and then comes the question as to where? Moving elsewhere in Europe would, at best, simply put off the challenge until a later time as, unless Islam is prevented from becoming the dominant force in Europe, there will be no freedom the millennials currently understand as Islam stifles all freedoms replacing everything in life with the Quran, the Hadiths, the Imam’s rulings, the Five Pillars of Islam and total surrender to their new masters way of life. There are those who are already ready and standing in opposition of Islam. Some are trying to wake the European continent and are using the political system such as Geert Wilders. Others are using a more direct method meeting Islamic rioters in the streets and escorting women on trains and buses which pass through predominantly Muslim neighborhoods where they have been attacked in the past for indecent dress, also known as Western fashion. Some quote great men in history who had seen this threat before such as Charles “The Hammer” Martel and King of Poland John III Sobieski, two men who saved the opposite ends of Europe from Islamic advances, and Winston Churchill who saw the threat of the Nazis and rallied Britain, and saw the threat of Communism which he named their oppression as an Iron Curtain falling across the continent of Europe, but long before noting either of these threats, Winston Churchill recognized another threat which did not threaten one continent but the entirety of mankind if this threat were not understood, recognized and taken on with everything equal to the extents taken to answer the later two threats of the Nazis and Communists, and this first threat was Islam. We recognized his wisdom which includes the quotes shown below plus more in our article European Union Should Worry About Europe Not Israel; and here are those quotes from the Honorable Sir Winston Churchill:

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.

 

Another problem the millennials and those growing up after them face is a lack of knowledge of history which means they never heard of Winston Churchill beyond a few quips in computer games. Many are not well read as they were instructed in whole word recognition which restricts their vocabulary to only the worlds their teachers introduced to them. They were not given the power of phonics and sounding out words from their spelling unless they had a teacher in elementary schools who never received the memo about using whole word recognition which was distributed somewhere in the early 1990’s. This new method for reading made reading new material on one’s own difficult and so cumbersome that it was virtually painful as any word one did not know they would need to ask somebody what it was. The meaning they might be capable of finding in a dictionary or thesaurus but how the word was pronounced they likely required assistance. This makes any advanced book on history, politics, philosophy or even mathematics or physics beyond their capability and newspapers would be equally challenging. This is one of the reasons for the character limit on Twitter as it makes one write in a less complex manner using short and easy world. News on music channels is given in short and uncomplicated manner using statements which would also be acceptable as a Twitter post. The entirety of their world is contained in 140 characters or less, including spaces and punctuation. Perhaps this explains the lack of punctuation and the great new idea in schools that spelling should be an expression of one’s feelings for the word and that there not be any exacting idea for how words be spelled. This has even extended to mathematics where it is now the process which matters where if a student can explain how their method should have led them to the correct answer, that should count more than whether they did actually find the correct answer. Education just is not what it used to be and thus neither are the students or the knowledge expected from them. This also further explains why millennials believe that it is their freedom to do as they please which is important and the results should simply be accepted by the rest of society.

 

The lack of discipline shown by millennials and the younger set has included a new psychosis which is defined as Chronic Lateness and any person who is late to work on average three times per week cannot be fired for their tardiness as it is not their fault, they suffer from Chronic Lateness. This is a sample of how anything which millennials and the following generations and even us older people are now relieved of any responsibilities towards others and how all actions are now to be acceptable as they are simply the defined reasons and concepts under which each individual lives. We are all to be permitted to define how we live and exactly what others must expect and permit us to act even if it causes them problems as those are their problems and do not lay your problems on me, man. There is going to be a clash of civilizations as in Islam the five times of prayer every day are set in stone. They are announced in a less than casual cry by the muezzin often with the aid of expensive and powerful amplification systems such that nothing can mistake when the time for prayer has arrived. Imagine the millennial who upon hearing the call to prayer at 5:00 AM who decided to roll over and go back to sleep as they do not feel like bothering to rise and shine, and then at 11:00 AM when the second call to prayer is heard they had a rough night and our millennial decides they still require more rest turns back to their original side and returns to sleep and then finally rolls out of bed around 1:00 PM and then they just might become noticeable due to their absence at the morning prayer times. Somehow, it is doubtful that the Muslims would accept Chronic Lateness Syndrome. As we noted earlier, Islam is very rule oriented in everything in one’s life and that starts with waking for morning prayers as Salah, praying to Allah five times per day, is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. On the other side of the argument, if the millennials are going to defend their rights to live as they please by their rules and in a world where Chronic Lateness Syndrome is acceptable, then they may actually have to stand and do something.

 

Should they not stand, then Europe may end up looking like the map below along with the Middle East, Asia and Northern Africa. From there Islam has stated plans on moving on to North America starting with the United States and then moving on southward in both the Americas and Africa and lastly taking on China and Asia. There are many Imams and Islamic leaders who believe that these conquests are written in stone, or at least the Quran, and guaranteed by Allah and thus their efforts cannot be resisted. After they take control of the entire world, there will only be a few questions left to answer. The first question will be which interpretation of Islam will take total control, Shiites, Sunni, Salafi, Sufism, Wahhabis, Ahmadiyyas, Alawite or Kharijites. The average betting man would choose Sunni or Wahhabis but should Iran be the only Muslim nation with nuclear weapons, particularly thermonuclear devices, then the Shiites would be the best bet. Even after this, there will probably be yet another final question which will cause one final war, who will be the Caliph who will be expected to bring in the Twelfth Imam or the Mahdi who then would bring back Muhammad. One would hope that there would be no more conflict and everything would finally be settled and everything put in place for their End Times, but we likely missed something somewhere.

Will the world fall to Islam? That will first depend on whether Europe falls to Islam and this we have discussed numerous times and explained the required changes should Europe honestly desire to preserve its heritage. The easiest means of finding resolution for saving Europe would be a return to religion, filling the pews every Sunday, and through this restoring of their Christian heritage, having children, many children which would allow for a basis of workers to provide for the aging population. The having of children is the most important item on the list and there is no time like the present to begin their efforts. The map above should be sufficient impetus for action on behalf of the European population, then we are not sure what it might take. There have been signs of a restoration of religion even in Russia where President Putin has recognized that the future of Russia is heavily embedded in the return and rebirth of the Russian Orthodox Church. Christianity’s rebirth in Europe would mean Catholicism in Italy, Spain, Portugal, France and beyond; the Church of England and Catholicism in Britain and across the Isles; Lutheranism in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Germany; Eastern Orthodox and Greek Orthodox in Eastern Europe and Poland; Calvinism in North and West Switzerland, minorities in Germany and Hungary, Scotland, a large minority in Northern Ireland, smaller numbers in England, Wales, Ireland and Malta. There are other churches and Catholicism throughout all of Europe and into Russia and all of these and even more modern and liberal churches such as the Church of Christ, Presbyterian Church, Evangelical Church, and some of the ancient churches such as the Assyrians, Coptic and others all need to contribute efforts and possibly even a new church using many of the originalist teachings of the early church which includes families as important and held many interesting principles and teachings which fell away with time and could add a degree of authenticity and excitement which would assist in the rebirth of faith in the new Europe. Imagine a church based on the originalist teachings becoming the newest church and the form of Christianity which allows for the reality in faith necessary for modern Europeans. Perhaps the millennial Church where services start Sunday morning around eleven and continue all afternoon, drop by as you feel the need and enjoy the service and adjust to the segment you find most comfortable, and don’t forget, children are bliss and excitement and teach real truths which we may not have found yet in our lives. Perhaps traditional churches and religions would be most appropriate to begin with, but hopefully, we might just see some version of these proposed paths come to fruition.

Erasing the Western World Through Education

 

What if one day they just decided that the history of the Western World was too white, too colonialist, too male dominated? What if they decided that Western Literature was menial, was substandard, was subordinate to African, Asian and, well, all other literature? What happens when the Western elite decide that the Western ways are an anathema to them and ordered the destruction of their own culture through the educations system, through unenforced borders, through forced assimilation to every other culture, through the media degrading the Judeo-Christian Western culture and every means necessary? What if the leaders became so guilt ridden to their past and denounced their former colonialism despite it bringing enlightenment to much of the globe and denounced their slaving past despite leading the world in abolitionist movement enforcing equality and freedom for everyone within their society finally living up to the teachings of their prophets and leaving human sacrifice and the brutality of the past leading to the brink of a new age only to have the elite decide that the future was too frightening as they would lose their privilege so they decided to destroy everything in the hopes of surviving to stand atop the ruins? What if we told you that is exactly where the leftists were leading the United States and are still taking Europe? Their plan was derailed when those they considered to be their inferiors in what they saw as ignorant and uneducated flyover-country decided they loved their world and their country and their way of life and decided to elect an egotistical megalomaniac with delusions of intelligence who pontificated about closing the border, repealing Obamacare and taking the nation back to some semblance which these people would recognize.

 

Allow us to give you a few select peeks at how far the insanity has spread and the deepness of the sickness infesting the elites in the ivory towers of academia. First let us look at academia and some of the ridiculous ideas and even one particularly troubling assignment. An article by Giulio Meotti who appears to have assigned himself two particularly thankless assignments for the bulk of his writings; covering the decline and agonizing death of Europe and with it Judeo-Christian ethics for the continent and defending Israel from unfair and anti-Semitic criticisms which appear to run rampant across much of our world. He informs us that South Africa is preparing to eliminate the study of William Shakespeare from the school curriculum. Their plan is to replace him with African poets. Education Minister Angie Motshekga told the parliament, “The consideration of the works of Shakespeare is one aspect of the overall process of review of the literature.” In a recent New York Times editorial by two philosophers, they called for removal of the teaching of Shakespeare. Additionally, a group of the student body at Yale University has petitioned for the elimination of Chaucer, Shakespeare and Milton. But the rampage against Western culture is not limited to the literature department, oh no. When students petitioned to have Stanford include in the curriculum a course on “Western Culture,” the administration turned them down flat. Out of the fifty-two leading universities in the United States, a course on the Bard, Shakespeare, appears in a rousing four of them. Not to be outdone, Oxford University has decided that a “review” of their curriculum is in order with the aim of increasing “diversity.” An article in the website of the Oxford editions by Gary Taylor stated some pretty radical ideas including asking, “Was Shakespeare racist?” He called for taking “Canterbury Tales” off the reading lists. Giulio Meotti suggested this was possibly done to make room for the Zulu poetry.

Then there are some disturbing assignments equally as challenging. Iowa State University Professor James Strohman assigned his students in their international studies course to, “Write a paper that gives a historical account of 911 from the perspective of the terrorist network. In other words, how might Al-Qaeda or a non-Western historian describe what happened.” Just in case anyone might think that such an assignment might upset students where they might object to having to take such view of the events from that day, he added, “Don’t worry about the fact you don’t agree with the terrorists, the point of the exercise is to consider completely different perspectives.” When asked by the College Fix a spokesperson stated the assignment was not to take away from the “tragic events” of that day. The assignment did give some further advice stating, “Let’s focus on the 911 terrorist attack and how it might be interpreted differently by different people around the world. For this exercise, you have to ‘get out of the box’ of our thinking about what happened on 911 and view it from a completely different perspective.” Such preposterous of a story needs some validations so we have included the actual assignment as presented below.

These are just the tip of an iceberg and Western Civilizations and Judeo-Christian Ethics is the Titanic on her maiden voyage and it is approaching the midnight of April 15, 1912. The open borders which were proposed by President Obama (despite his having set immigration bans from suspected Middle East nations where terrorism was rampant) and would have been accelerated by a hint over five-hundred percent, that was according to Ms. Hillary herself. It was on Face the Nations where Hillary Clinton told CBS, “I would like to see us move from what is a good start with ten-thousand to sixty-five-thousand and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people that we would take in.” Well, at least there would be vetting probably very similar to that used under President Obama. If we remember correctly, as long as Iran vouched for you, then you must be perfectly fine, or something equally wonderful.

 

Further, Angela Merkel has announced she will run for a fourth term as German chancellor in a crucial national election next September without any reservations to her past performance and the refugee situation. She did claim it had been a difficult decision as there exist complex challenges which she will face and there is the “absurd” expectation for Germany to take a world leadership role since Barack Obama leaves office. Listing some of these challenges Ms. Merkel stated, “The European Union is currently under great strain, with the euro crisis, with the refugee question, and following the decision of the United Kingdom to want to leave the EU, and with a situation in the world which, to put it delicately, needs to focus itself anew following the elections in America and also regarding the relationship to Russia.” As far as the situation in the world and the expectations that she have answers for everything, especially due to the election of President Donald Trump in the United States, she added, “especially after the elections in America, that I’m expected to deal with, it’s very grounding, but I feel it very strongly as grotesque and downright absurd.” She has made some statements of late expressing reservations for Germany carrying the bulk of the refugee problem and believes that Germany still has her role to play in this problem. Angela Merkel still speaks of Germany taking refugees but has walked the unconditional acceptance of nearly unlimited numbers back from her original eight-hundred-thousand per year to a more vague and limited expectation without placing an actual number limit. One might think she would have learned from the horrors Germany has suffered in response to her policies thus far. Still, Chancellor Merkel can expect rave reviews and stellar write-ups in the German and European media with full backing of every leftist news source.

 

The backing that the leftist European candidates receive from the vast majority of their media is quite similar to that across the pond in the United States. This means that across Europe the citizens can no better rely on the poll numbers or the reporting, especially things reported about nationalist candidates. Another warning to our European friends is that within the six weeks before your elections you can expect the leftist candidates to take steps and announce programs they will support which will never come to be. These are feints to lead the people to believe that they are moderate except they will continue to act in the same manner as they have on the past. Leftists are pretty much incapable of changing their stripes. In closing, there are a few items you may wish to have your candidates reply about where they stand on Judeo-Christian ethics, Western Civilization, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Kant, Freud and, oddly enough, whether they support Israel or the Palestinians, and they can only choose one.
