A World Without America

Most social sciences professors and journalists in the enlightened western world enjoy imagining a world without america--a world where all their dreams of social engineering and regressive-left societal planning could be carried out.

Perhaps the prospect does not mean what they think it means? Inconceivable!

Muslims Poised to Take Over Europe: Bernard Lewis

Bernard Lewis is an honored scholar of Arabs and Islam. If he says that muslims are about the take over Europe, smart people will pay attention.
Lewis, whose numerous books include the recent What Went Wrong?: The Clash Between Islam and Modernity in the Middle East, and The Crisis of Islam: Holy War and Unholy Terror, would set no timetable for this drastic shift in Europe, instead focusing on the process, which he said would be assisted by "immigration and democracy." Instead of fighting the threat, he elaborated, Europeans had given up.

"Europeans are losing their own loyalties and their own self-confidence," he said. "They have no respect for their own culture." Europeans had "surrendered" on every issue with regard to Islam in a mood of "self-abasement," "political correctness" and "multi-culturalism," said Lewis


It is my impression that aside from Denmark, Europe has given up. If it were up to leftists in North America and Oceania, those outposts of western civilisation would also surrender--out of abject political correctness.

Fortunately it is not up to the morons who cling to sinecured positions in journalism, the university, civil service (other than departments requiring real world competency), etc. It is up to the people who actually make things and run things. Most of those people don't seem ready to give up the only decent civilisation ever to evolve.

I Don't Like You, Because--You're Going to Get Me Killed!

If you want to know why people in the mainstream are beginning to dislike leftists with more passion than normal, the reason is looking you in the mirror. It's about the survival of a civilisation. Leftists tend to hate anything they don't control, so if a nation or an entire civilisation is not being steered the way they like, they will not hesitate to spike the guns, blow the barricades, and stab the civilisation's defenders in the back.

If western civilisation goes down, only authoritarian principles will survive as the nucleus of replacement civilisations. Fundamentalist Islam, leftist hellholes like North Korea or the coming Venezuela, and warlord-ruled states such as Zimbabwe, Cuba, Myanmar, Bolivia, and so on. Japan might survive as a quasi-western state, if it learns to develop effective robo-weapons, nano-weapons, and space-based weapons very quickly. Otherwise, Japan will go down, like the intentionally sunk (by leftist factions) states of the west.

Prime power centers for the left in the west are: the universities and education unions, the media centers (news, publishing, and entertainment), the arts, labour unions, and most civil service departments of governments other than practical, performance-based departments such as fire, law enforcement, and EMS.

Leftists "spike the guns" by subverting actions of the military and intelligence communities that are aimed at enemies of western civilisation. The New York Times is quite active in that area. Leftists blow the barricades by preventing the enforcement of immigration laws and border enforcement. Leftist stab the defenders of the west in the back in too many ways to mention. Only someone indoctrinated in a leftist university department would fail to list several examples.

There are no perfect nations or civilisations. The civilisation of the west is the freest for the greatest number of its citizens.

The bloodbath suffered by Cambodia after the Khmer Rouge seized power will be nothing next to the deluge of blood should the west fall.

Leftists will get us all killed--even themselves. Leftism is a quasi-religion, an indoctrination-dependent ideology. Leftists immediately try to purge their immediate environment of non-leftist elements--because they can't take the implied threat to their own beliefs. The beliefs are not supported well enough for the most part, to sustain doubt. All doubt must be swept away.

When only leftists are left--the incompetent society in spades--things will quickly collapse, and the authoritarians will make blood flow in the streets. That's why I don't like you. Because you're going to get me killed.

The Modern North American University Statement of Purpose?

The revolutionary and progressive characteristics of this university are due to the revolutionary and progressive characteristics of its staff and its courses.

The educational principles of the university are: ‘Correct political orientation, plain, hard-working style, flexible strategy and tactics’.

We must overcome difficulties, contact the masses, and heighten our militancy. Anyone who is not politically correct does not deserve to be a student of this university, for he acts against the rules of this university.

To the class of graduates: ‘You must be brave, resolute, and tenacious. You must learn through struggles and be prepared to sacrifice your freedoms for the liberation of the world.

Written for the Production Drive of the university ‘Study on the one hand, agitate on the other; overcome ideological adversaries and unnerve the enemies.’ ‘Now study and agitate. In future you will rule over the counter-revolutionaries.’

The style of the university: ‘Unity, alertness, earnestness, and political correctness.’

Paraphrased from Mao's words of wisdom.

Well, anyway, it seems to be the accepted approach to education at the University of New Mexico Law School.

Strong Leftist Bias in University Threatens Ability of Schools to Educate

Education is meant to instill in the student both the love of learning and the ability to sort through ideas and evidence in order to arrive at the most workable solutions and systems of thought and action. But if the information available to students in university is so skewed toward a particular point of view--excluding the broad spectrum of ideas prevalent in the real world--the university cannot perform its vital function for the student.

This 2005 study by researchers at Smith College, University of Toronto, and Center of Media and Public Affairs, should put to rest the claims by leftist professors that the university is not skewed to the left.

The study shows that in the arts and social sciences, and soft sciences, the faculty is almost certain to consist of mostly leftists. The proportion of leftist to mainstream is closer to 50:50 in the harder sciences and engineering faculties--where competence must be demonstrated, and where training is more rigorous and demanding.

It is no surprise that leftists tend to flock to areas where competence-testing is rare, and based upon subjective peer appraisal rather than unforgiving objective criteria, as in harder sciences and engineering. This allows them to pretend to be knowledgeable and expert in an area without actually needing to demonstrate any competence--except to other members of their in-group. Circular jerkulating is the rule in those departments of university.

Read the study before commenting, as a favour to others.
