State of the Bunion

January 21, 2015

Once a year, the “Commander In Chief” of the USA gives a “State of Union” speech, in front of the entire Congress of the USA (that’s the 500+ members of the House of Representatives plus the 100 Senators).

It is an enormous, deliberate propaganda show. It’s quite a bit like Disneyland. Selected guests and stars are in the audience. It’s set-up, Hollywood style: many are there to play a role, as if in a movie. They are actually in a movie, but it’s for real: as the President speaks, the cameras focus on the character in the “public” who he just mentioned. The character exhibits the emotion he, or she, is supposed to exhibit: a tear here, quiet satisfaction there, beaming, triumphant smile, here. The cameras pan expertly. If somedody fidgets, the camera is switched to another one, right away. Ms. Obama leaving for a second her plastic smile? The camera is switched again, until she has recovered her magazine cover plastified, happy, beaming look. Overall, everybody is supposed to exhibit astronomical pride and satisfaction in “America”.

On cue, every time the president finishes a paragraph in his discourse (known in advance and exhibited on TV screens), the audience rises, and applauds frantically. One feels as if one were in North Korea. Except, there, the “Commander In Chief” does not read his discourse off a teleprompter.

If one reads a text, one has still to understand it, enough to memorize it for the few seconds one needs to say it. No such a thing with a teleprompter. Understanding not required. If one substituted a discourse about bananas, Obama would probably go on that way for quite a while, and the audience would raise and applaud on cue, with rapt attention.

Only once in the whole show did Obama got off script, when Republicans applauded him, predictably, when he said he would not “run” again. He smirked, big time. There, for a few seconds, the President did not play the game of self-satisfied, deceptive, scripted lying. He showed his true inner self: this is all theater, and he showed more teeth than when he beamed smiles, but those teeth were in a snarl. Happily for his wealthy sponsors, he recovered his Presidential Persona, and plodded on…

Obama made the discourse he should have made 6 years ago, on wealthy individuals and corporations having to pay for the infrastructure of the USA, with more taxes. Then it was not safe to say it: We The People could have asked for more. Instead, then, under order advice from the plutocrats and their servants, Obama reduced taxes on the wealthiest, and even inverted the whole financing structure: the richest got trillions of help, as they had been stolen by their peers.

The people went back to work, as they had no choice.

Now it’s safe to propose to tax the rich, so Obama is doing so. There is not a snow ball in hell chance that the Republicans who own Congress will dare infuriate their financiers. Everybody in the know knows this, but the show is for those whose exercise routine consist into watching American football every week, on a wide screen TV.

Just yesterday, the Swiss “National”, announced that the collective presidency of Switzerland will have to be enlarged. Right now the collective presidency has seven members, with one more prominent for a year, giving a face to the Swiss presidency (as far as the rest of world is concerned). The Swiss have decided to become even more democratic.

Of course, the USA could not afford such a democratic system as a collective presidency. Who would personally order drone strikes against civilians? If seven persons were involved, one of them would be bound to disagree with collective, public assassination, and one, or actually many, would explain who was all for assassinating innocent civilians, etc.

Indeed the Swiss presidents have to explain themselves: they don’t have around them the security bubbles of French or American president. When the French president arrives somewhere, once all the security is in place, sometimes for hours, he is immediately preceded by a neatly dressed officer in magnificent uniform, with a red ribbon, carrying the case with the nuclear codes.

What’s astounding by European standards, during the State of the Union, is the ambiance, as America, the Myth, is been created for TV. Obama, the Drone in Chief, announced that “drones were constrained”. The audience rose and applauded. So far, only the USA has used drones for assassinations, and thousands of innocent civilians have been killed. That mostly happened under Obama. The naïve ones will believe that was a blunder, as the invasion of Iraq was a blunder. But neither of these two policies was a blunder, as they profited the USA Commanding Class immensely.

Invading Iraq enabled the USA to become, once again, the world number one producer of fossil fuels: fracking was profitable, only if Iraq was removed from the equation.

Killing innocent civilians at random instilled respect in the USA in goons, and plutocrats, worldwide. It also enticed the Goon In Chief in Russia to do the same, inflicting conflict in Europe, thus dividing to conquer).

The USA is an imperial power running a tight plutocratic ship. It has a tight national government doing exactly what the “deep government”, or “real government” of the USA wants (the government of plutocrats, military, and all sorts of secret agencies and the .01% conspiracy (that’s 30,000 people), and their obsequious servants want it to do. It’s all pretty much united by a spirit of greed and competition (sport scores!), a materialism, some will say, united by formalities.

This is not a grown up system: it just plays one on TV. But it works. Meanwhile, Europe, thanks to its disunion and lack of a deep government, is unable to even comprehend that it is cooperating in its own demise.

The USA maybe just a bunion for civilization. But bunions can kill, when they turn so handicapping that the predator, hobbling along, becomes prey. It’s in the best of the real interest of the USA to not destroy the civilization it came from. The Union has to be considered at a larger scale, and with a deeper vision. There was some of that in Obama’s speech.

So State of the Union, or State of the Bunion?

In any case, it’s not in the Democrats’ hands. After they gave birth to Obamacare, the ultimate smoke and mirrors of gift to the rich, presented as charity to the ditch, they lost all elections, while gaining all confusion. All Obama can do now, is to be the best president the Republicans had, since Ike. But, of course, it will not happen.

In the Republican “response”, a robotic woman read-off the teleprompter mechanically, showing even less emotion than the talking heads on North Korean TV. This “Senator” is described as a rising star of USA politics. She made George W Bush look warm and cuddly. One does not stop progress.

EUROPEANS As MONGOLS of the Sea? No. EUROPE was vastly superior.

January 20, 2015

Mongols were very smart, at least under Genghis Khan’s iron fist. But they were mostly derivative, as nomads in general tend to be. Anti-European propaganda in the USA never rests, missing, so doing, the point of Western civilization. Paul Krugman, per the general American anti-European mood of the moment, suggested that Europeans were “Mongols of the Sea. I will show why this is, mostly wrong [1].

Geography is destiny. Does that mean superior geography is superior destiny? What about… HUMAN GEOGRAPHY AS DESTINY? This is the core idea of the MIDDLE EARTH THEORY… Middle Earth Theory observes that Western civilization grew at the confluence of most continents, because this is where most ideas got together. History is culture, intelligence. Does that mean that a richer history is a richer culture, hence greater intelligence? Why did the Mongols invade all over the place, from Palestine, to Poland, to India, Korea, Japan, and Indonesia? Geography is destiny: they were at ease in the central Eurasian steppe, the world’s greatest grasslands… and the greatest communication system in the world.

Eurasian Steppe in Pink. Notice How Green & Full of Coastlines Europe Is.

Eurasian Steppe is in Pink in the picture above. This enormous amount of pink, this gigantic steppe from the far east to central Europe made travel easy for all and any people who knew how to survive the cold of Eurasian continental winter. This explains the Huns, the Hungarians, the Mongols… But also the Indo-European phenomenon, as, from West of Mongolia, they could go to Europe, India, and China. And they did. Notice How Green & Full of Coastlines, islands and Peninsulas, Europe Is… And the central position of France (explaining lots of history and mentality).

[Mongolia is the land south of Baikal Lake, the long and lonely lake in the middle of Asia, just north of the steppe. Ulan Baatar, the Mongol capital city, is the world’s coldest.]

In his book “Gun Germs and Steel”, Jared Diamond suggested that Europeans had lots of everything because Europe has had lots of everything to start with. Diamond had a chicken and egg problem. He was both chicken, and egg. Both scared, PC, and embryonic, not even.

The idea that geography is history is very old. It’s not just found in Braudel’s concept of Hydraulic Dictatorships, but also in the ancient Greek observation that Greeks were around the Mediterranean Sea as frogs around a pond (Herodotus).

Diamond observed that Europeans had plenty of domesticated animals and plants. So European material superiority was just happenstance (and not caused by their superior race, or culture).

That was, however, silly. Domesticated animals were evolved by man. Husbandry of animals was the robotics of the past. As the Franks learned to manage (what they called) Europe without slavery, they replaced slaves with animals and mechanical advantage. A new mood was born.

So doing, the Franks fabricated a mood of Freedom and Creativity. Harsh, massive, satirical critique of the Catholic Church, started in the Twelfth Century. The Pope reacted by killing millions (the Cathars, and then Valdese) and inventing the Inquisition.

The philosopher Alain Badiou, a far left anti-racist rather Marxist fanatic, yet one of the top professors in France, admitted recently that “only Europeans think”. As a French government campaign of the 1960s crowed: ”In France, on n’a pas de petrole, mais on a des idees” (or, more exactly, used to have ideas…).

Paul Krugman suggests that Europeans were the “Mongols Of the Sea”. Says Krugman:

“…Western Europe, because of its geography and lifestyle, had a disproportionately large number of skilled open-sea sailors. Very few of these sailors would have been engaged in warfare in normal times… can’t we argue that they provided a base of skills that gave the Atlantic fringe a big military advantage at sea?”

Of course, we can argue that, and it’s true to some extent, but not to another.

When Caesar got to the Atlantic coast of Gaul, he was astounded by the multitude of high, large, ocean going Celtic sail ships. (Early Roman galleys defeats against those ships turned into victory after Caesar forces invented a particular device, the crow.) By the Sixteenth Century, and probably earlier, the Basque fished massively cod off Cape Cod.

Isaac Asimov, by the way, did not invent psychohistory. He just invented the label. Psychohistory is in full evidence in Herodotus.

A question is why the Mongols were Mongols. Well, the world’s largest steppe extends from Manchuria to Hungary. The place where it had the largest extent, after South Russia switched from savagery, nomadism, hunting, gathering and trapping to agriculture, was, precisely Mongolia (not suited to agriculture).

Nomads are war like, they naturally attack and exploit peasants (see Arabs and Islam for a similar situation). After the Amazons and the Scythian empire got replaced by peasants, the Mongols were free to pay visits, with their nomadic war style, from one end of Eurasia to the other.

It’s actually the Huns who got the ball rolling. They tried to conquer Western Europe, but were defeated drastically in Gaul. First the natives in Orleans apparently surrendered their city, just to ambush them. Retreating, Attila’s giant army was then shadowed and harassed by the Frankish army. Finally, cornered, the Huns were near-annihilated in Champagne by a Franco-Roman and Gothic coalition (Aetius, the Roman commander, who had been raised among the Huns, saved them, in a weird turncoat maneuver).

The Mongols of Genghis Khan were direct descendants of the Huns of Attila. They remembered all too well what had happened between the Franks and the Huns: here is psychology again. Actually the Mongols made precise considerations on military effectiveness: composite bows go soft in the wet forests of Europe, and little Mongol horses were nothing relative to giant Frankish war horses. After a costly victory in Hungary, they decided to stop. Some of their vanguards had reached the Adriatic sea in Croatia.

Instead the Mongols allied themselves with the Franks to conquer Baghdad and Damascus… The alliance was nipped in the bud by the racist Saint Louis, Pope, and a difficult Mongol empress. In the end, the Mongols became Muslims (as the Pope apparently hated Nestorian Christianism more than he hated Islam).

True, the Europeans beat the Mongols at their own game. The famous Mongol tactic of retreating in disarray to create an ambush, was actually most drastically used by Duke Odo (Eudes) at the Battle of Toulouse in 721 CE (five centuries before Genghis Khan). The Franks originally fled, then enveloped the pursuing, and overconfident Islamists. (This gigantic battle is mostly ignored nowadays; Islamist historians claimed the Frankish army was 300,000 strong, and that the Muslims suffered 375,000 “Martyrs”. It was the first severe land defeat of the Muslims in one century of Islam.)

The Mongols did not have an industrial basis. What they did have, as Huns, or, four centuries later, Avars, and still another four centuries after that, Genghis Khan’s tumens, was super military training (as did Muhammad’s Arabs, for the same reason… Or the North African Saharan Berbers they allied themselves with to annihilate Christian North Africa)).

Europe, by contrast, had a superlative technical and industrial basis: the Celts provided the Roman Republican army with swords (Spain) or thin light metallic helmets (Gallia). The Celts, as I said above, gad ocean going ships that none of the Mediterranean people, not even the Greeks, had. It’s the conceptual descendants of these ships which allowed to send large armies across the Atlantic in the Fifteenth Century.

The outlawing of slavery in the Seventh Century forced Europe into high science and high technology. The construction of cathedrals is the proof of this: although superior Roman concrete had been forgotten, the cathedrals used iron in a crucial way. Said iron structures were too strong to be manipulated by hand, so hydraulic hammers had to be invented, and they were.

After Augustus lost three crack legions and their supporting troops in Northern Germany, Rome stagnated militarily. That led to an ecological collapse, a military collapse, and then a demographic collapse. The Franks inverted the avalanche of collapses by conquering Germany, and finding enough silver in Eastern Europe to reconstituting a hard currency (routinely boiling counterfeiters helped).

The Mongols had superior military organization, still they knew they were no match for the Franks (the conversation between the top Mongol generals about this are in the Secret History of the Mongols). The Europeans, though, set-up superior organizations in roughly all domains.

This is what the plutocrats are hell-bent to destroy presently. Do not forget that Greek plutocrats (the friends and “Executors” of Aristotle) and Roman plutocrats, did not hesitate to destroy the civilizations which had produced them. Our plutocrats are not any different.

Comparing Europeans to raiders of the steppe can only help.

But did the English Colonists who invaded North America succeed to do what the Mongols failed to do, and the Nazis also failed to do, namely to exterminate most of the Natives? Certainly so. Thus Americans became, de facto, what the worst Mongols dreamed to be: not just ruthless conquerors, but thorough terminators.

This ruthlessly terminating, not to say exterminating, mood, is, no doubt, still with us. That’s why Bush went to kill 500,000 , or more, in Iraq: just because he could.

[1] Anti-European propaganda in the USA never rests, because Europe presents alternatives (say universal healthcare) unpalatable to the US elite. Fox News (basically) proclaimed Paris the Most Dangerous City in the Universe. Obama himself helped. Hugely erroneous ideas and theories about historical facts are necessary to feed hugely greedy thus criminal systems of thought. Paul Krugman, per the general American anti-European mood of the moment, not to be overtaken by Fox or Obama, suggested that Europeans were “Mongols of the Sea”. I will show why this is, mostly wrong. (The mood of Krugman and his ilk, though, is as wrong as wrong can be; it consists into pleasing their sponsors; so today anti-European, tomorrow all for Europe, they think and feel what they are told to think, and feel by those who pay them…)

Dear Muslims, about Muhammed cartoons

January 19, 2015

Here is an essay from a scientist who, per the nature of his activities, physics, astrophysics, mathematics and searching for exoplanets, planets orbiting stars in our galaxy, is forced to keep his mind wide open on a lot of questions of deep and burning interest.
Professor Coel Hellier shares my general approach (not just about Islam, but in much of science). However, he is from Europe, so he does not abide by the European bashing the leaders of the USA engage in. (And American academics know they are supposed to partake in, to earn the respect that brings them money and a nice career!)

Generally European bashing is practiced by the USA in a fashion covert enough that paid-off European leaders can claim they don’t have the faintest idea about what is going on.

An example is energy policy: Twenty years ago, the USA with Vice-President Al Gore (later made a Nobel Prize, of course), started a big noise, mirror, smoke and fury about “climate change”. The European Union bought it, hook, line, sink, and now even the European boat attached to all this is sinking.

While Europe was doing extravagant efforts to reduce its greenhouse gases emissions, the USA augmented its own (counting everything, something USA propagandists will not do for you).

Result? Right now the price of energy in the USA is half of that in Europe, the European economy is sinking (surprise, surprise), European unemployment is colossal, Europeans are rioting, and the President of the USA tells Europeans to their faces that this is all happening because Europeans are racist (more smoke and mirrors).

However, today is Martin Luther King Day. Who was MLK? Somebody who wanted Americans “of color” to have the right to sit where they wanted in a bus. (Most Americans are “of color”… with the one drop rule!)

That is a right, sitting where they wanted, that the Romans already had. OK, Romans did not have buses, but they had an imperial throne, and Spaniards, inhabitants of the Balkans, French and British born sat on it. More interestingly, African born and Arab born citizens also sat on the imperial throne.

Emperor Septimus Severus, a Libyan, was, indeed of African “blood”.

So the Martin Luther King craze, and sanctimony, is not something that Europe ought to look up to, but something to look down on. MLK was very courageous, but only as an example that one does not get anywhere good, but by telling the truth.
Anyway, let the sedate and wise Coel have a go at Salafists.

Not that the top propagandists of Salafism do not know what Coel is saying: they all do. Their (meta) aim is just more power for themselves and their masters, this is always how the Islamist game has been played.

Islam star and crescent of person who would draw a Mohammed cartoon, if I could draw, which I can’t, and if I was good at satirical cartoons, which I’m not. Yes, we do understand that you find cartoons depicting Muhammed offensive. We understand that you value the reputation of Muhammed more than that of your own family, and that Western cartoons about your prophet are, to you, utterly disrespectful and blasphemous. We are not drawing cartoons just for the sake of being insulting, nor because we hate you. We draw cartoons because we regard doing so as important for a free society.

Over human history many ideologies have been totalitarian. The Christian religion used to burn people at the stake for heresy. The Soviet Communists sent people to the Gulag for any dissent from communist ideology. The Nazis murdered millions to further their fascist ideology.

All totalitarian regimes control what people can say, and…

Salafism, Tool of USA Plutocrats?

January 18, 2015

Resident Obama warned Europeans “not to simply respond with a hammer” against Muslim fanatics. He said that American Muslims are better integrated in the USA.

Interesting. The attacks in France were ordered by Al Qaeda’s Zawahiri, who the USA tried to kill many times. The attack was precise, extremely well informed. Is Obama suggesting one should not use a hammer against Al Qaeda, and Al Zawahiri? Zawahiri was Ben Laden’s doctor and brains, and the USA has a 25 million dollar reward on him.

Zawahiri, an Egyptian national, head of Al Qaeda, now says that he ordered some specific French citizens (who happened to be anti-racist and communist) to be killed… And Obama does not want France to hammer?

Islamist Destruction In Nigeria by Boko Haram. Source: Amnesty International

[Boko Haram: Book Haram, that is Book Forbidden according to Islam. France is rushing forces from Chad into invaded Cameroon, next door.]

Did Obama hear about Charles Martel? “Martel” means “Hammer”. The Islamists invaded Francia in 721 CE, with a huge army, and were hugely defeated by the Frankish Duke Eudes at Toulouse.

After gathering two gigantic armies, the Islamists re-attacked in 731 CE, and Eudes was unable to contain them. South-West France was destroyed. By then the Mayor of the Palace (= Prime Minister) Charles took drastic measures to raise an enormous army, the largest since the Roman Republic. Charles nationalized the Church to pay for the army. The Church thought about excommunicating Charles (Charlie?). However, little desirous to be hammered again, dropped the idea.

Charles the Hammer would annihilate the invasions of 732 CE, and the one that followed five years later. Next, the Arab Caliphate fell (never to rise again: all and caliphates since were only covered with an Arab veneer: non-Arabs, such as Persians, Kurds or Turks, held the power).

That’s why we are all Charlie. We, the civilized ones.

So France knows how to “hammer”. Charlemagne hammered back across Northern Spain against the Islamists, launching the Reconquista (of Spain). The invasion of Algeria in 1830 CE was such an example of hammering back.

“Our Muslim populations, they feel themselves to be Americans. There is, you know, this incredible process of immigration and assimilation that is part of our tradition that is probably our greatest strength,” Obama said Friday, as he stood next to British Prime Minister David Cameron. “There are parts of Europe in which that’s not the case, and that’s probably the greatest danger that Europe faces.”

Not like the USA, who integrated its Muslims so well, it only suffered 3,000 dead during 9/11. A trifling detail, no doubt?

And what about Hadith 41; 6985? Let’s have Islamists kill Jews to perfect their integration?

PM Cameron (all too) politely disagreed with the American president’s assessment of immigrant communities in the United Kingdom. He retorted that the United Kingdom is “a multiracial, multi-ethnic society of huge opportunity”.

The United Kingdom has more Muslims than the USA. 5% of the population of England is Muslim. That would be 16 million scaled up to the total population of the USA. Let’s see how many Boston Marathon bombings that would produce… Oh, by the way, the Boston bomber will get the death penalty.

Here is Obama: “It’s important for Europe not to simply respond with a hammer and law enforcement and military approaches to these problems, but there also has to be a recognition that the stronger the ties of a North African — or a Frenchman of North African descent — to French values, French republic, a sense of opportunity, that’s going to be as important, if not more important, in, over time, solving this problem,”

Compare Obama’s context with reality as depicted in Wikipedia, “Islam in the USA”:

“Islam represents 0.6% of the population of the USA.

American Muslims come from various backgrounds, and are one of the most racially diverse religious groups in the United States… Native-born American Muslims are mainly African Americans who make up about a quarter of the total Muslim population. Many of these have converted to Islam during the last seventy years…

While an estimated 30% of the slaves brought to colonial America from Africa arrived as Muslims, Islam was stringently suppressed on plantations…”

So what is Obama up to?

The USA is not what it looks like. The Bible was used to justify Jevohah methods of exploitation, complete with “Promised Land”.

In 1950, Islam was nothing. However the USA allied to Muslim Fundamentalists in Egypt (alliance with Muslim Brotherhood, out which came Al Qaeda) and Iran (incitation by the USA of the Shia led by Khomeini, against elected PM Mossadegh), and against the French all over North Africa. And for all the Feudal, Salafist monarchies of Arabia.

Just as the North American colonists used the Bible, they also use the Qur’an. Both are related, as Christian monks played an important role in the edification of Islam.

The USA is the most militarized (it spends roughly as much as the rest of the planet combined in “defense”) and the most thoroughly policed state in the world (with around 20 secret service, intelligence agencies), millions in prison, and about eight millions under judicial watch.

So it seems that Obama is worried that Europe would go in the direction of the USA.

Why would that be so scary? Is not imitation the ultimate flattery?

Yes, well, except when it is about getting power. What Obama and company are afraid of, is that Europe will become powerful.

Cameron replied: “You can have, tragically, people who have had all the advantages of integration, who’ve had all the economic opportunities that our countries can offer, who still get seduced by this poisonous, radical, death cult of a narrative.”

Indeed. The problem has been seen before. Tens of millions of Germans had all the advantages of integration, they had all the economic opportunities that Germany could offer, and who still got seduced by this poisonous, radical, death cult of a narrative called “Nazism”.

Human beings have a very Dark Side. Christianism, copying the mood that was central to the Roman Republic, got that one right: “Homo Homini Lupus.” Man is a Wolf for Man.

The Islamists, in less than 90 years, established the greatest empire ever seen. They were fighting from Central Asia, to India, to North Africa they had massacred in a few years, to Iberia they conquered in three years, or so, all the way to Central France.

This is entirely attributable to the fact that the Sacred Texts of Islam make “killing the unbelievers”… into a religious orders. Including the Jews: see Hadith 41; 6985 (and the like).

Any ideology that makes mayhem respectable will always find herds of young men ready to die for it, as long as they can abuse, torture, and kill a lot in its name.

The fact is, Islam is exactly such an ideology (below the veneer of weasel sentences). This is exactly why “integration” of Muslims is so hard, and why the Middle East has been going down ever since Islam took over (contrarily to what is usually proffered by Politically Correct Parrots: PCP).

If one said this, expose this facts, rolled out these quotes, one was viewed as a fascist, racist, for decades. The real question is who did this cognitive derangement advantaged?

The same people who brought you the 50% unemployment rates for the youth in some European neighborhoods.

Compare with the 200 largest corporations of the USA avoiding taxation through Luxembourg to the rate of more than 100 billion dollars a year… About 30% of the budget of the French State. That is as much power stolen to European State power. Thus to schools, thus to employment.

Right now, the USA has a worldwide empire that resembles the one the Roman Republic set-up in the Third and Second Century Before the Common Era: military force is implicit, and business contracts all flow to the center Rome then, the USA now (look at the countries who did not buy the A380 Jumbo Jet: they neatly define the countries most under Washington’s orders).

Rome had interest to create a mess in Greece, to prevent the rise of powerful, free, social republics. Washington is doing nothing less.

Predators prefer to mess up with preys’ minds, before they strike. It’s easier that way.

Why Oh Believers, So Little Faith?

January 17, 2015

I will expose the fundamental reason why some otherwise seemingly clever Muslims are so enraged: because they are clever enough to not believe in their own “faith”. Same story with the Pope and his angry eyes when saying that “provoking the faith” justified murder. It is a case of Bad Faith (Bad Faith as technically meant by Existentialism).

Provocative thinking drags those “faithful” fanatics out of their own minds, out of their own little ignorance, out of their little mental caves, it makes them less comfortable in their rage, thus it hurts.

A Pakistani lawyer in international lawyer garb, tie and suit said: ”One must pass an international law to prevent to hurt Muslims…” Muslims get hurt when a bearded man proposes that “All is forgiven”? Basically, “Muslims” get hurt when we talk? They believe so little in their own delirium, that the smallest idea hurts them so bad, that they absolutely have to kill somebody?

Mahomet Overtaken By Integrists. It’s Hard To Be Loved By Idiots

Mahomet Overtaken By Integrists. It’s Hard To Be Loved By Idiots

This is why, oh Believers, you are so mysteriously, and murderously, enraged. (Or, more exactly, it’s the proximal reason; the religious strings of the fanatical puppets and mobs, are pulled by their oil thirsty plutocratic masters in Arabia, themselves in the grip of their even richer masters.)

From Pakistan to Senegal (!), mobs are rising in fury against Charlie Hebdo for a cover with a bearded man holding a “Je Suis Charlie”. In Pakistan, hundreds of lawyers (!) did so. People died. It is curious that they see a drawing as an “insult” to their so-called “Prophet”. Nowhere it is said by Charlie Hebdo that the picture represented a prophet, or a rophet, or a pro-fête (pro-feast?). The French are very much profête…

Are those outraged fanatics really hurt, or playing one on TV? Or paid to play one on TV? I lived my childhood in Senegal, and French satirical magazines were for sale, and bought massively. How come so changed? In the meantime, gentle native Senegalese Sufi “Islam” (not really Islam), has been replaced by Salafist from Saudi Arabia. The feudal plutocrats from Arabia have spilled all over the world (with complicity of the USA).

Let’s say in passing that Obama said that American Muslims felt American first, that was the strength of the USA. It’s true that American patriotism is strong. When exposed to my theories on history, several American “friends” immediately stopped the relationship. American philosophy sites have censored me.

Obama even mentioned North African Muslims coming to France. What Obama does not seem to know is that there are 5 million of recent Muslim immigrants in France (8% of the population of metropolitan France). Scaled to the USA, that would be nearly 30 million people. But there are only two million Muslims in the USA. More exactly, 2.75 million. That’s .7%, that is, less than one percent of the population of the USA. Moreover, Muslims of the USA come from all over the world, not just a few countries: they don’t even meet. And finally one cannot compare a Muslim from Indonesia (say), and one from Hamas (say; with its kill-the-Jews Charter…)

But Obama is paid to say that the USA is on top, and all the others got it wrong. While heading the world’s top police state (as measured by percentage of incarceration and prosecution… except for an Islamist state or two).

In Paris a play telling the true story of a Dutch woman who married a Yemenite and ended up killed by stoning for disobedience, was stopped. It was scheduled for another 30 times. It was played only three days. Terror reigns: telling facts that really happened is now a potential death sentence.

There is infamy, and then there is ignominy.

Infamy: to beat, terrorize, and kill people because of a difference of opinion, a drawing. (Jesus, who was the first to order to kill unbelievers, see “Jesus Lethal Threats” is followed rigorously by Jihadists, and on a matter of principle, by the Pope.)

Ignominy: To keep on singing the praises of (literal) Islam after terrorist massacres and Islamists, supported by millions, killed people because they made a joke.

Not even a joke against someone living. No, a joke that could be interpreted as “slandering a Prophet” (the expression Ayatollah-in-chief Obama used at the UN, 2012). A prophet dead 13 centuries.

OK, the Prophet was vigorous and rigorous. He disposed of the treacherous on an industrial scale. An entire Jewish tribe “betrayed”, the Banu Qurayza. It was disposed of. As Wikipedia puts it:

“[A Jewish] tribe was charged with treason and besieged by the Muslims commanded by Muhammad. The Banu Qurayza were forced to surrender and the men were beheaded, while all the women and children were taken captive and enslaved.”    

So the great prophet personally exterminated an entire Jewish tribe. Great prophet, great exploits. Alleluia. Islam, Submission, Religion of (Eternal) Peace. Also most helpful to (slave) free market.

There are three levels of explanation for fanaticism:

1) The charitable explanation for fanatics is that all they know is their sacred texts, and that’s all they know. The Sacred Texts say to kill the enemy, and eat it (a Hummingbird god, in the case of the Aztecs). And that’s it. These texts are typically hyperviolent, as they exist to justify the existence of a hyperviolent reigning plutocracy. They also have to pay homage to goodness, as human beings need it, and would be suspicious if there was none to be have to justify the hyperviolence.

Vicious Islamists and their supporters always quote good passages (say in the Qur’an) and say that, from those few passages, the whole thing is good. Same for the Bible, Mein Kampf, or various other fundamental hate texts.

2) Thinking is hard. Brainwashing followed by mental reconstruction is even harder.

3) The fanatics have interest to hate their victims, as that allows them to steal them: this is what happened with the Nazis. The Nazis’ hatred of the Jews enabled them to steal them, and distribute the spoils to their supporters. The prescription in the Qur’an to “kill unbelievers” allowed the Arab Muslim army shortly after 632 CE to defeat both the Persian and Roman empires. In no small measure because the Jihadists used lethal methods so brutal that they took their adversary by surprises (the wounded were killed by Arab women on the battlefield, and soon all men of military age killed in Syria).

So now what about the present hatred of all too many followers of the Qur’an? Many of those who are pretty clever know full well that their superstition is not that believable: they just have to look around. So, to make it believable, those who have interest to push for it, decide to kill absolutely any of this looking around.

Another look at any of their ways is mortally dangerous for the collective hypnosis the “believers” foster. Unfortunately, European intellectuals, and especially French ones, have fed this for decades. The notion of “Islamophobia” has been identified to “racism”.

In 2005, the Council of Europe identified “Islamophobia” as “fear, or a vision tinged with prejudice of Islam, and Muslims, and related questions…” In other words individual persons are identified to a religion. That would be a bit like identifying Nazism and Germans. The Council of Europe is racist.

However, the Haut Conseil à l’intégration founded by Michel Rocard reminded us unanimously in 2003 that:

  • “En République, la critique de la religion, comme de toutes les convictions, est libre
  • Elle est constitutionnellement garantie et fait partie de la liberté d’opinion et d’expression.
  • Elle ne saurait être assimilée au racisme et à la xénophobie.”

In other words, criticizing any religion is free, constitutionally guaranteed, is part of Freedom of Opinion and expression. And ought not to be assimilated to racism and xenophobia. In other words, exactly my position. It’s OK to have Islamophobia. It may even be safer. If Charlie Hebdo had been more Islamophobic, the terrorists would not have 12 at their headquarters.

(By the way, Le Mouvement des musulmans laïques de France (MMLF) agrees with me, pointing out that moderate Muslims get accused of « Islamophobia », and thus racism, especially in Africa. So the concept of “Islamophobia” feeds Salafism. This is why places such as Senegal are getting infected. That and Arabian money. The war starts with correct semantics!)

I have total superstition phobia, superstitiophobia, but that does not make me a racist. Respecting violent superstitions (such as ‘don’t draw bearded men’) would make me a proto-racist, though, because most of the definition of racism is unjustified hostility.

The essence of humanity is reason. Unreason is as inhuman as it gets. Against humanity, reason has never struggled in vain.

Those who believe in obviously idiotic legends of the vicious type know this very well, very deep down inside, and that is exactly why they have little faith in their own religious derangement. They are cornered, cornered by reason, the ultimate essence of man. That makes them even more vicious.

Bad Faith they have, and asking us to revere Bad Faith will serve only those who want to enslave us. To serve, you know, the guys in suits, the richest plotters in the world, the usual suspects… The very same ones who have interest to keep the Middle East in a subjugated mess.

THOUGHT CRIMES

January 16, 2015

Let’s reflect upon Prophet Muhammad alleged genocidal statement, according to some of his followers:

Hadith 41;6985: ”Allah’s Messenger: The last hour would NOT COME UNLESS the Muslims will FIGHT AGAINST THE JEWS and the MUSLIMS WOULD KILL THEM until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree, and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and KILL HIM…”

[Several other Hadiths convey the same order to kill all Jews. It is viewed as a most significant, sacred text of Islam, part of Hamas Constitution!]

***

This is not just about “Jews”. Once one had decided that a category of innocents, here some people one has decided to call “Jews”, who have done nothing, but have been pointed at, should be killed, any other category of people can be killed too, from a similar murderous inclination.

Some say that Freedom of Expression means that one can say anything. That’s completely false. There is such a thing as a “Thought Crime”, once a murderous thought targeting innocent people is propagandized, especially out of a context mitigating it. Republican civilization has to strike down such type of expression, and it already does. It is a question of survival of optimal civilization. This rigor has to be deployed against incompatible ideologies, such as Salafism!

Maybe, some will suggest, it means one can say anything if it is clearly a work of fiction? Not really: a line has been drawn with evoking some types of crimes against minors. That line was drawn into legislation, worldwide.
(Even the USA, a country which officially violates the Conventions on the Rights of Children, applies said legislation, and countless websites have been closed and criminals prosecuted, just for suggesting what could be interpreted as leading to crimes against children, a case of over-sensitivity…)
Try to make death threats against the president of the USA, on line, or in a private group. Rightly so, you will be prosecuted. Actually plausible death threats against anybody will generally result in prosecution.

Respect The Faith Of Murderers, Says Pope Francis

Respect The Faith Of Murderers, Says Pope Francis

[Old “Blasphemous CH covers;  Left: 100 Lashes, if you are not dead from laughter; Right: Put a veil on Charlie Hebdo. Notice that it is the fanatics themselves who decide that their so-called “Prophet” talks that way, and is thereby represented! So they are the ones engaging in blasphemy!]

Threatening to kill children and other horrendous suggestions, are, by themselves, crimes. Why? Two reasons: first, they create a climate of terror. That, by itself, is not just an aggression, but an injury, and it can result in fighting, or even death (in diverse fashions).

Secondly, floating around horrible propositions is suggestive that to engage in them would be a good thing.

In physics, much progress was brought by considering “THOUGHT experiments”. Buridan may have been the first, when he explained the Heliocentric system around 1320 CE. Galileo repeated basically the same idea by pointing out that physics was left intact, deep in the dark recesses of a moving boat. Newton later illustrated that a projectile sent with great velocity parallel to the surface of the Earth would fall around (another dressing of Buridan’s idea).

So I want to introduce THOUGHT CRIMES.

They already exist, pointwise. In countries which suffered the most of Nazism, such as France and Germany, it is against the law to deny the facts of Nazism.

So now I see (on German TV) demonstrators in (some) “Muslim” countries carrying posters saying “Help our Kouachi Brothers”. The Kouachis were the two brothers who attacked Charlie Hebdo under order from the co-founder of Al Qaeda, Ayman Al Zawahiri (the USA has a 25 million dollar reward for him).

Al Zawahiri’s wife was below part of a house in Afghanistan demolished by an American bombing. She “refused to be excavated” because “men would see her face”. While the rescuers were arguing with her, her unhurt 4 year old daughter died from exposure in the very cold Afghan winter night. Zawahiri said that was good that the little girl died, because she won’t be an orphan.

You see, there is such a thing as absolute morality. It’s given by the ethology, the behavior, which enables the survival of the species. It comes straight from our Creator, tens of millions of years of evolution of our species. Contradicting this: immorality.

Human females had faces human males could see, for millions of years. By refusing this, and imposing that denial of reality to others, with lethal consequences, Muslim theoreticians of that fanatical persuasion make themselves lower than animals, in the sense that they do not allow, not just our survival, but even that of the species.

Bin Laden’s official biographer admitted that Zawahiri was the “real brains” behind Al Qaeda”. Zawahiri, an Egyptian, entered the “Muslim Brotherhood” at 14.
There we are. It ought to be a crime to expose young, 14 year old people to criminal thinking. Zawahiri is not stupid: he is a trained surgeon. But he was imprinted at such an early age into (violent) Islamist verses and commands. See the Hadith 41; 6985, one of many, explicitly about killing Jews.

One ought to criminalize criminal imprinting. And first of all that of youth.

One has the right to criticize an idea, a concept, a religion, the powers that be, a system of thought, an emotion, or a system of mood. But one does not have the right to attack people physically and to incite hate (so that others, in turn, will be inclined to attack the people who are hated, physically).

Have a look again at Hadith 41;6985: …”Allah’s Messenger… : The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will FIGHT against the Jews and the MUSLIMS WOULD KILL THEM…”

The “last hour” is the Day of Judgment (as found already in the Bible). When …”Allah will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds to gardens beneath which rivers flow. They will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and pearl, and their garments therein will be silk.” (Qur’an S22; v23)… others will meet a “painful punishment.”

Proposing that everybody good will be rewarded and the miscreants punished only after the Jews will be killed seems to me to be hate speech. From Allah’s Messenger, that is, Muhammad (supposing it was faithfully related by Sahih Al Muslim). It is to be feared that, left to be literally interpreted, this statement will bring many a Jihadist, to conclude it is a religious duty to kill the Jews.

Can the statement be mitigated? Sunni Islam has no professional priests (supposedly). Once I met a real blonde in New York City. A real blonde in several senses of the term. She told me she switched from fanatical Catholicism to fanatical Islam, not just because she fell in love with the local Imam, but because Islam had no priests (and she probably disliked their moral commands, and lack of balls, to put it as it was, between the lines; she is still at it, decades later, teaching Jihadism in the greater New York area).
The lack of professionalism in Islam teaching means that, if an Imam mitigates Hadith 41; 6985 (above), a terrorist can show up, and claim that the Imam is an apostate (he has “left Islam” and thus, ought to be killed).

Solution? Have agents of the Republic at the ready, supporting mitigating Islam teachers (official Imama, paid by the State; those already exist in Belgium).

Each time a fanatical Muslim shows up, loudly interpreting Muslim sacred texts such as Hadith 41;6985, kill the Jews, literally, and making threats, have them arrested, and put in isolation in prison (so that they cannot engage in proselytism; Salafist proselytism connects with organized crime, and is extremely well financed by the oil propelled, feudal terrorist powers of the Middle East, such as Saudi Arabia).

The notion of THOUGHT CRIME has proven useful against a resurgence of Nazism. Denying the facts of the Shoah is enough to send someone to prison in Franco-Germania.

As humanity depends ever more crucially upon truth regarding basic facts, criminal thought systems ought to be crushed. This is the most basic way in which Voltaire’s command to “crush infamy” has to be implemented.

Some are bound to say: ’Oh, you are just like the Jihadists. They kill because people don’t think right, and you want to jail people because they don’t think right.’

Not so: I am for all thinking, and feeling absolutely anything, as long as it does not result in severely adverse consequences to others, or the human species’, or intelligence’s prospects.

“In France, one can draw everything, including the prophet,” Justice Minister Christiane Taubira said, and she is right, and I approve.

We depend crucially of truth, and increasingly so, as we are becoming like gods, with ever increasing powers. But we don’t want to be like Darth Vader in Star Wars, and blow up planets, just because we can. Actually, Darth Vader is modelled after the god of the Bible and Qur’an, getting to order whatever atrocities, just because he can.
I advocated setting up a Ministry of Truth. Ministry of Outrageous Potentially Lethal Lies maybe a better concept. For example, when fossil fuel companies pay for disseminating lies about the gathering atrocity (I weight my word) they are contributing to, by some of their actions, they ought to be prosecuted.

Any human organization that is large enough (so I am deliberately excluding small public associations, including small and medium companies) has a fiduciary duty.

Example: the Pope just supported, in context, the attack against Charlie Hebdo, and against a Jewish supermarket. At this point, a week later, we are talking about two dozen people dead, and many grievously wounded. A plot against Belgian police and justice by Jihadists, related to the French attacks, has forced to protect police stations and courts with special forces and mobilize the army to help (for the first time).

The Pope said, that’s all right, “it’s normal, it’s human nature. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”

Even the Sidney Herald recognizes that: “The Pope Sides With Muslim Faithful in Charlie Hebdo Debate…” Faithful Muslim? It is more like fanatical Muslim. The Pope is an accomplice of murderous Jihadism, after the facts, in a horrendous context. That makes him the most famous fanatical propagandist at the head of the largest institution. He should be prosecuted, at least intellectually.
Patrice Ayme’

***

Note: 1) Jews were “cursed and changed into rats” in Sahih al-Bukhari, 4:54:524, Sahih Muslim, 42:7135, Sahih Muslim, 42:7136.

2) Ordering to kill Jews is also found in: Sahih Muslim, 41:6981, Sahih Muslim, 41:6982, Sahih Muslim, 41:6983, Sahih Muslim, 41:6984, Sahih al-Bukhari, 4:56:791,(Sahih al-Bukhari, 4:52:177)

3) The Qur’an says that the apes and swines one sees were, actually, Jews (in three Quranic verses: 5;60, 2;65 and 7;166). In connection with the Hadith of the style above, this gave a clear “imperative“.  A May 2006 study of Saudi Arabia’s schoolbooks curriculum discovered that the eighth grade books included the following statements:
“They are the people of the Sabbath, whose young people God turned into apes, and whose old people God turned into swine to punish them. As cited in Ibn Abbas: The apes are Jews, the keepers of the Sabbath; while the swine are the Christian infidels of the communion of Jesus. ”

“ Some of the people of the Sabbath were punished by being turned into apes and swine. Some of them were made to worship the devil, and not God, through consecration, sacrifice, prayer, appeals for help, and other types of worship. Some of the Jews worship the devil. Likewise, some members of this nation worship devil, and not God. ”

Saudi textbooks for 9th graders teach thatthe annihilation of the Jewish people is imperative.

It goes without saying that this sort of lethally criminal pedagogy based on superstition should be internationally punished, according to international law to be drafted, absolutely. (By the way, some of the Sunni tradition found natural, as the transformation into apes and swines had be done to the Jews, to extent the courtesy to… Shiites; so it is that propaganda created there, against a particular group of innocents, extents naturally to another group… It always works that way.)

Pope Francis A Jihadist?

January 15, 2015

So the Pope claims that, if one insults his mother (“mia mama”), the natural human thing to do, is to smash the perpetrator’s face. It’s just human nature, he added. And he repeated, that it was normal, just to make sure everybody knew the Pope was just a street thug.

Times they are changing. The Swiss Central Bank said it would not keep the Swiss Franc cheap relative to the Euro. Within minutes, the Swiss Franc jumped up by 40%, relative to the Euro, and the Swiss Stock Exchange by 13%. It’s supposed to stabilize around one Euro.
The rumor has it that the policy I advised for half a dozen years, to drop the Euro well below one Dollar, has now been decided.

It turns out that the weapons used by the Al Qaeda/Isis terrorists in France last week were bought in Belgium. The police enquired, and a new shoot out resulted, killing several Jihadists. Meanwhile, the German Parliament observed a minute of silence about the French victims, followed by a discourse of Merkel.

The French government gave French nationality to the (Muslim) Malian citizen who saved people at the Jewish supermarket. Prompt justice. A good thing. A petition signed by already 300,000 had asked to do so.

A bad thing is that Boko Haram (“Book Forbidden”), a Jihadist organization destroyed 16 villages, Amnesty International says, from studying satellite imagery. Boko Haram uses children as human bombs. A girl less than 10 year old is an example.
In Venezuela, the economy is collapsing with the price of oil (the ROI of oil is very bad in Venezuela, so the national oil company is losing massive money; for Venezuela to make money, the price should be twice what it is now). There are long lines to enter all supermarkets. Youngsters standing in line for the rich can earn more than a university professor.

But let’s go back to the Pope, and his slightly crazed eyes.
Asked about the hate massacre that killed 12 people at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, including two Muslims, the Pope said: “One cannot provoke, one cannot insult other people’s faith, one cannot make fun of faith. There is a limit. Every religion has its dignity … in freedom of expression there are limits.”

Charlie Hebdo has been targeted because it had printed what fanatics believe are depictions of the prophet Muhammad. It’s not so much what Charlie Hebdo did, than what criminals pretend they believe Charlie Hebdo did. This sort of subtlety is assuredly lost on the Pope. By espousing, without questioning it, the reasoning of Jihadists, and fanatical Muslims, the Pope becomes their friend, mitigating any threat against his person (a Muslim had shot Pope John-Paul II, nearly killing him).

The Pope gestured to Alberto Gasparri, who organizes papal travel, and was standing by his side. Francis I added: “If my good friend Dr Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch. It’s normal. It’s normal. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”

Except, of course, one can kill somebody by hitting them with a fist. Is the Pope saying that the normal answer to insult is bodily injury, or killing people? To his credit, the Pope admitted that it was what the Christian Church used to do, and that it was no good.

All this in the context of insulting religion. Now, insulting religion is not insulting one’s mother.

For people to come to the rescue of their god by killing other people means, basically, that they believe their own god is as defenseless as a small child.

But, if god is that impotent, how come he is described as potent? Potent, or impotent, that is the question. If god is so impotent that fanatics need to rescue him, then the sacred texts such as the Bible, Qur’an, Hadith, Torah, have been lying about the most important point, namely that god is god.
Indeed, power is god’s most important feature. If god is not all the power there is, then all the power there is is god, or there is no god.

In other words, by going around killing people in the name of god, that is because god is too impotent to the job himself, or then refuses to do it, Jihadists and Crusaders prove that either they don’t believe in god, or god is in disagreement with them.

The real explanation is, of course ethological: since there are people, and they exist, they are looking for excuses to kill foreigners, in other words, non-believers, those who don’t believe what they believe. Interest of this mass homicidal inclination? It decreases human population to sustainable levels.

So what of the Pope?

The Pope is actually at war. He excommunicated the Mafia, first Pope to dare to do so. A risky move. Same with a general reform of the Church.
The Catholic Church is the oldest continuous institution in the world. The historian Gibbon viewed it, in the Eighteenth Century, as the cause of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. I agree that Christianism was the most prominent proximal cause (however, I see Christianism itself a consequence of political fascism, itself consequence of plutocracy; so the Decline took more than 5 centuries).
Catholicism crashed civilization twice. First by killing Romanitas, and bringing forth the mood that gave us Islam. The second attempt started with the Crusades, and petered out with the Enlightenment.

Matthew 10:34. Christ said: “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.”

The Rophet ran away with that one.
(And no, it’s not exactly an accident, but a pattern. See: “Was Christ Immoral?”)

Catholicism, Islam and their ilk started with a guy tying up his son, to cut his throat because his boss had told him to. I am not making this up by Christianophobia. Here is the Bible in Genesis 22; 1-2 and 9-10.

1 God did prove Abraham, and said unto him: ‘Abraham’; and he said: ‘Here am I.’
ב וַיֹּאמֶר קַח-נָא אֶת-בִּנְךָ אֶת-יְחִידְךָ אֲשֶׁר-אָהַבְתָּ, אֶת-יִצְחָק, וְלֶךְ-לְךָ, אֶל-אֶרֶץ הַמֹּרִיָּה; וְהַעֲלֵהוּ שָׁם, לְעֹלָה, עַל אַחַד הֶהָרִים, אֲשֶׁר אֹמַר אֵלֶיךָ.
2 And He said: ‘Take now thy son, thine only son, whom thou lovest, even Isaac, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt-offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.’ …
“9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built the altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar, upon the wood.
י וַיִּשְׁלַח אַבְרָהָם אֶת-יָדוֹ, וַיִּקַּח אֶת-הַמַּאֲכֶלֶת, לִשְׁחֹט, אֶת-בְּנוֹ.
10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.”

All Catholics, Christs, Francis, Muslims, Saints, Imams, are supposed to revere that story, one of the most disgusting in the history of writing.

Instead, I propose to revere human goodness, and crush infamy. Instead of partaking in infamy, and abject obedience, as Abraham did… And made a religion from it.

Mahomet Hebdo

January 14, 2015

OK, it’s rather Muhammad Daily. Al Qaeda took credit for the attack against Charlie Hebdo, in a 12 minute video. Five million copies of Charlie Hebdo are printed and sold. That’s nearly three times that miserable Islamist terrorist aiding and abetting newspaper, the New York Times (I sent a comment to that effect, and they later took down the article I attacked; it quoted criminals approvingly; I did not make a copy in a timely manner).

Vast weasel and lying propaganda in the USA, indeed, against Charlie Hebdo and Freedom of Expression in a sort of crusade against “blasphemy”. Those behind it are often paid propagandists attached to plutocratic universities (as Stanford’s “Director of Diversity” deconstructed yesterday).

Infuriating some More Real Fanatics: They Hate Forgiveness

Infuriating some More Real Fanatics: They Hate Forgiveness

{Banner translation: All Is Forgiven… The Christian approach… ;-)}

Another tac of anti-French hypocritical American “intellectuals”: “one does not make fun of minorities”. There are probably more practicing Muslims in France than practicing Christians (let alone Jews). In the world, there is 1.6 billion Muslims. We are talking about operative majorities, here. People get condemned for “Atheism”, or “Insults Against Islam” in Egypt, every week.

As the end of this essay will make clear, that pseudo-holly, PC American “intellectual” position equates to lethal racism against Muslims (the main victims of Islamist violence). So now a few armed fanatics sent, managed, helped and equipped by the unholy alliance of Al Qaeda and the Islamic State make a minority one should not make fun of? According to American philosophers?

What’s the correct approach? The Mayor of Rotterdam a Muslim born in Morocco, son of an Imam, told the Muslim extremists to “rot toch op” (“fuck-off”)

https://news.vice.com/article/mayor-of-rotterdam-tells-muslim-extremists-in-the-netherlands-to-fuck-off

Ahmed Aboutaleb, who arrived in the Netherlands aged 15, spoke out in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris. Mayor Aboutaleb said Muslims who ‘do not like freedom can pack your bags and leave’.

“It is incomprehensible that you can turn against freedom,” he said on the Dutch program “Nieuwsuur (Newshour).” “But if you don’t like freedom, for heaven’s sake, pack your bags and leave… If you do not like it here because some humorists you don’t like are making a newspaper, may I then say you can f– off,” Mr. Aboutaleb added. “Vanish from the Netherlands if you cannot find your place here.”

London Mayor Boris Johnson lauded his Dutch colleague as his “hero,” saying his comments were “straight to the point…. That is the voice of the Enlightenment, of Voltaire,” Mr. Johnson wrote for The Telegraph. He added: “If we are going to win the struggle for the minds of these young people, then that is the kind of voice we need to hear — and it needs above all to be a Muslim voice.”

SATYR INTERVIEWED:

I went to the woods, and met a happy satyr. I talked to him thus: ”What’s up with satire, satyr? Why the happy face? Are you not sad that so many thinkers and cartoonists got killed because they practiced Freedom of Expression?”

The satyr laughed: “You now, I was sad when even Voltaire got censored. But now there are printing 5 million copies of Charlie Hebdo. Maybe they read you too, some day.”

Me: ”You mean, when Voltaire’s play on the Prophet was censored in Europe?

Satyr: “Exactly, that was the Nadir. Voltaire’s play was entitled: “Le FANATISME Ou MAHOMET Le Prophete“. Yes, the capital letters are in the original. Theater that made people laugh 262 years ago, in 1753, became not “Politically Correct” and got censored in the name of Islamophilia. In the Twentieth-First Century.

Me: “You exaggerate. Voltaire called it a ‘tragedy’”.

Satyr: “OK, so Islam is fanaticism, according to Voltaire, but fanaticism to that extent, not being able to draw a guy with a beard, that’s funny. We, satyrs and satirists, have been at the core of civilization for 3,000 years! Dionysus, remember? The festivals, the cut-conifers, offering the gifts for the Winter Solstice, the orgies, the drinking, happiness, jokes, the outrages, the craziness, the generalized irreverence? Ah, readers are going to understand that we can’t even f the rophet, only because he is thoroughly decomposed.”

“F the rophet?” I fled in horror, terrified by what American propagandists would call “puerile”. Most Academic American philosophers would condemn me for talking to a Satyr. It’s much better to read the New York Times, which expressed all the racism there was in making cartoons of bearded men, by quoting genuine terrorists calling to kill all those who draw (drawing people is actually forbidden in Islam).

American (paid) philosophers are not amused by Molière’s satirical caricature of religion in Tartuffe, a satire that is exactly 350 years old (and which even the very Catholic Louis XIV liked).

Let’s analyze the latest cover from Charlie Hebdo. A bearded man is crying, he looks sad, dismayed. He wears a cover on his head. He says: ”Je Suis Charlie.” Above it’s written: ”All Is Forgiven.” From this, fanatics, those who come out of the Fanum, the Temple, deduce that Muhammad, somebody dead for nearly 13 centuries, has been gravely “slandered”. Who told them it was that particular person, and how can one insult somebody dead 13 centuries?

Since when is ”All Is Forgiven” a call to hatred? To confuse forgiveness and hatred is a perversion not just of all values, but of vocabulary itself. Since when should serious media quote individuals so inarticulate that they confuse “forgiven” and “hateful”?

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2015/01/07/je-suis-charlie/

Fanatics whose business is extremism of course pounce on the worst interpretations, so that they can advise to augment the nastiness (as it is their business). By taking their delirium seriously, one advertise, and aid and abet the worst aspects, the most demonic side of human beings.

Letting those who call for hatred claim that forgiving is hateful is giving up on reason. There are actually death threats against Jews (among others) in Islam’s most sacred texts. Is this offending material? Is quoting Islam sacred texts unacceptable? Is it what the PC calls “content that is deemed offensive and gratuitous”? Have a look at:

http://www.usc.edu/org/cmje/religious-texts/hadith/muslim/041-smt.php

Here is such a well-known Hadith, that it is part of the Charter of Hamas. Book 041, Number 6985:

“Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”

Related by al-Bukhari and Muslim. See also from Sahih Muslim: Hadith: 41:6981, , 41:6982, 41:6983, 41:6984, Sahih al-Bukhari, 4:56:791, and 4:52:177. All this is readily available on Islamist sites. Can one get clearer than that?

Qur’an Sura 2, verse 190: “Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits… Sura2, v.191: And slay them wherever ye catch them… tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter… slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers.”

These are quotes out of hundreds. See:

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2009/06/22/some-violence-in-holy-quran/

The New York Times actually quoted that verse, S2, v 191. But it quoted exactly what I did not quote: ”Do not transgress limits”. So am I as dishonest as the New York Times? No. “Do not transgress limits” is vague, but innocuous. By quoting that, the New York Times is deliberately distorting the main message of this verse, while claiming they quote what I quote, and it comes out different. It’s always hard to argue with stupidity… By definition of stupidity, which is the inability to understand arguments.

The main message of Sura 2, The Cow, is verse 191. And that is that those who believe in the Qur’an should “…slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers.

If somebody says: ”Hello, good morning, I have to kill you,” Islamophile intellectuals, and the New York Times, will quote: ”Hello, good morning.” Those who want to survive, and who believe in natural goodness, will worry about the rest of the message: I have to kill you, my religion says so.

So who is a disbeliever? The main problem of those who want to survive Islam is exactly here. That’s why millions of Syrians are refugees in other countries, and hundreds of thousands have been killed: who is a disbeliever? When the religious order is to kill “disbelievers”, “disbelief” is the most important question.

Solution? Forget the fiscal deficit imposed by plutophiles in Brussels. The French Republic is at war, and should spend, if need be 5% of its GDP on defense, completely paid out of thin air. And if that brings the Euro down, so much the better. (Actually a currency is defense by other means, so a country with a strong defense has always a strong currency.)

It’s all about power, ladies, gentlemen, and satyrs. And the power starts with the mind.

Multicultural PC Racism

January 13, 2015

When thinking about Americanization in Europe, many think of McDonald. I rather think about hidden plutocratization and tax cheating by encroaching American corporations to such an industrial scale that European states have been weakened.

(So the European schools, integration, police, defense have been going down, with the complicity of their dumb, corrupt, or inept leadership; as I explained in How Plutocracy Fosters Islamism; the only question is whether the plot is conscious, or not; in some individuals, assuredly, it is the former).

Beyond this obvious colonization by tax free capital, one should not forget that the USA is racially obsessed. One would expect that, the European colony in North America having established official racial based slavery for 246 years. The culture of the USA is still endowed with a racial ideology.

The masters of the USA has been trying to export their notion of race, worldwide: its profitable aspects extend beyond just using whips and chains. It is good way of binding victims’ minds.

The slavery thought system uses religion to do so. And so-called “Multiculturalism” to foster religious fanaticism. This is why Obama, subconsciously or not, did not show up in Paris for Freedom of Expression.

To this day Americans are asked by the authorities of the USA to declare their “race”.

“Race”, since 1619 CE has been big business in the USA. 1619: the year when the first people “of color” were enslaved in Jamestown, Virginia. Some “races” could be readily enslaved, thus bring big profits.

Buying the present American thought systems wholesale, is adopting American ideas on race.

Some will finagle about my use of the word “buying”; yet, when Europeans accept global corporations of the USA NOT to pay tax, they are actually paying TWICE to have them around. They pay that Smart Phone twice: first by purchasing it, secondly by accepting that those who profited from the sale, will pay no tax… Whereas everybody else does.

Considering the history of the USA, buying its ideology should cause pause.

I decided to enquire on the ground. That’s called experimental philosophy (Socrates already practiced it, by debating various ruffians).

Diversity” is fashionable. So I went to a “diversity meeting” to meet my prey, the object of my little experiment, in its natural environment. Somebody from the Stanford staff was talking, very well, I must admit. I should not say that she was “articulate” because she was a self-declared “black”, and, we were told, by her, to call somebody “of color” (as she put it) “articulate” was a racist offense. Somebody as herself (That was a bit confusing, as her color was, hmm, white… Although she had braided her hair like the late Bob Marley.)

Thus, according to diversity specialists, when using an adjective, we have to carefully consider what they believe is their race. If the person is “of color” as the speaker put it, we have to hold back our adjectives. Which ones? While we think about this, we cannot have a conversation. Therefore we cannot have a conversation with people “of color”. This what diversity specialists recommend.

It gets worse.

The speaker was white, optically speaking. But she had always lived in a “black” community, she informed us, until she got to Stanford, as an undergraduate. I wondered if that was a “black” community where everybody was optically white.

However the Stanford speaker applied the “one drop rule”. In old parlance, that means “one drop of sub-Saharan African blood”.

Now here is the clincher:

DNA analysis has shown that about 30% of self-identified White Americans have recent sub-Saharan African ancestry.

Consequence: one cannot use adjectives with any American, lest they be “of color”, even when they are white. It’s probably why the Titans of Tax Evasion in Silicon Valley only use the adjective “cool”.

I intervened on the question of color: I pointed out that once, when I was a very small child, and we were going to Black Africa, my mom reminded me not to call Africans “Blacks”. In Africa, calling people “Black” is calling attention to the color of skin to define them. Thus, logically enough, it is perceived as racist. Although some tribes tend to be black like charcoal, others can be very light (for example the Peuls of the Sahel). I was found to be very articulate.

The speaker put herself in orbit around the concept of racism. A French member of the audience tried to interject that the concept of “race” was not clear. Then the speaker made the pirouette of saying that the black race was about identifying with the black community.

She now admitted that “race” was a psychological phenomenon, a psychological choice she had made. Then she told us we had to teach children about race, etc. We absolutely had to, we could not ignore race. The audience was in rapt attention about the alleged errors of its ways.

However is not racism bad? And is not racism about race? Is not racism a psychosis? Now she wanted us to teach our children about her psychosis: “Talk to your children about race! Yes, talk about race! It’s something we all have to do! It’s like teaching children that it is not a stork who brought the baby! You have to do it! Race! Talk to children about it!”

Imagine a Nazi telling us to teach our children about “race!” People would walk out. Instead, here was the “black” woman, who was nearly as white as Hillary Clinton, telling us to teach about “race” to children, and people were sitting in awe.

The mentally “black” and optically white speaker had admitted race was a psychological construct (Adolf Hitler, by the way, admitted exactly as much, and I understand very well what’s at work here).

I had enough of this racist ideology, and the capture of the audience with the artifact of the race we are supposed to revere. I rose, philosophical fangs fully deployed.

I told the audience that the USA is a racist country because it asks about “race”, it expects race, it imposes “race” on We The People, by requiring We The People to identify with a race. All those who went along that scheme are actually racist. OK, I did not mention the last point explicitly. I had already made plenty of enemies by pointing out the obvious.

All this was all the more shocking, that it was in a French Bilingual School. One would expect that the values of the French Republic would be defended. But they are not. I suspect that this is mostly from ignorance.

When I go to the science class, I see quotes from Einstein, a German Jew who was generously attributed the work of Henri Poincare’ by Max Planck (Planck paid the heaviest prize for his support of Prussian nationalism: both his sons died from fascism). This is weird, in a French school: Einstein was little, scientifically speaking, relative to Emilie du Chatelet, discoverer of Energy, Infrared, and a first class philosopher.

Why are the French ignoring French culture? Have they been swallowed by the blob?

French law forbid to distinguish race and religion. Both are supposed to be in the private sphere. It turns out that “race” cannot be distinguished biologically.

Early on, the Stanford propagandist had asserted that “race” was a matter of “phenotype”. That sounds scientific, hence plausible. That was before I blasted her, informing her this was incorrect. Phenotype is the set of observable characteristics of an individual resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment (in other words: Darwin + Lamarck). Then she retreated, and contradicted herself mightily as she re-defined “race” as “psychological”.

French law was prescient, not just biologically, but militarily.

When the Nazis took control of Western Europe, they tried to kill all the Jews. They used IBM to ferret the Jews. This was highly successful in some countries. In the Netherlands, the state had required Jews to register. IBM had their names. Their addresses.

80% of the Jews in the Netherlands were thus exterminated: the Jewish community went from 140,000 in 1940 down to less than 30,000 in 1946.

By contrast, in France most French Jews disappeared into the general population, and were never found. Although 75,000 Jews were assassinated, most of them were Jewish refugees from Central Europe (that the USA had refused to accept). As many had no papers, and did not speak French well, they could be easily tracked down.

How come the French cannot step forward, and defend their law, let alone their civilization?

Racial prejudice starts with racial discrimination. And racial discrimination is not just an injustice, but a lie (as races don’t really exist: there are Neanderthal genes all the way down to South Africa, it turns out).

It should not be tolerated by the French that the USA teach its racism to a real melting pot such as France. (Most of the French population has part Jewish or Muslim ancestry. Jews started to live in France before Christians and Franks did; willing Muslims were allowed to stay after the failed invasions of the Eight Century.)

And what of the role of Stanford University in this? Stanford is all about money. If slavery was the law, Stanford would teach slavery. In a way, by teaching race, thus racism, that’s exactly what it does.

Direct Democracy: Crucial Counterbalance To Vital Security State

January 12, 2015

So Obama was too scared to go to Paris (that’s the charitable explanation; the non-charitable theory is that he listens to dimwits too much). What when the self-declared leader of the Free, is a scared rabbit? Here is one drawback of Representative Democracy, “democracy” through “representatives”, or so-called “leaders”. Have you see a rabbit lead? When I run in the mountains, I see dozens of rabbits leading straight to the bushes (as in George W. Bush).

Not everybody can be as courageous as Israel’s Netanyahu (the only leader with

Franco-Germania Faces Hard Philosophy Ahead

Franco-Germania Faces Hard Philosophy Ahead

a personal guard in Paris, at his side always), Abbas (Palestinian president), Angela Merkel, David Cameron, Renzi (Italia), Rajoy (Espana), the Malian, Ukrainian presidents, and tens of other heads of state, who were also demonstrating in Paris. Even Russia sent to the Paris demonstration its fiercest specimen (short, maybe, of Putin), the Siberian hard man, Putin’s mentor, Ukrainian thirsty Foreign Minister Lavrov. Hopefully, Lavrov’s heart learned something.

The attack against Charlie Hebdo was, philosophically speaking, worst than 9/11: bin Laden was surprised that the towers fell, and 9/11 was construed by some hearts of stone, as a counter-attack against big capital, Wall Street, and the exploitative system of the Middle East financiers had helped to set-up.

But clearly the attack against satire is a direct attack against intelligence, and cannot be construed as an attack against exploiters (or an anti-racist attack: several collaborators of Charlie Hebdo were “Muslim”, two got assassinated, two survived). And the attack was planned by a collaboration of Al Qaeda and the Islamist State: the terrorists themselves said it. A video shot by one of the criminals AFTER killing a black policewoman, and grievously wounding others, was edited by ISIS, and put on the Internet two days later… From the Middle East.

The Security State cannot be avoided: as technology keeps exponentiating (a good thing), more and more lethal power can come in the hands of lunatics (a bad thing).

Thus the need to prevent mighty weapons to get in bad hands, and even very bad ideas to get installed in otherwise innocent minds. Hence the need for THOUGHT CONTROL (this means that Islam has to be put on rails which are defined by the Republic; it also means Internet control; some countries, such as the UK, already have it, France will get there within 6 weeks).

“Thought Control” is, of course, a very delicate problem: imagination, irreverence, satire have to be allowed, but not systems of thought leading to lethal issues.

Who is going to watch the watchers?

Well, We The People, directly.

Some of the commenters on this site rolled out the usual objection to Direct Democracy: the so-called “Madness Of The Crowds”.

Wisdom Of Crowds: Paris, 01/11/15.

Wisdom Of Crowds: Paris, 01/11/15.

Hazxan from the UK said: “Patrice, what really is “Democracy”? All my life, every day, it was programmed into me that we had a “democracy” that it was a rare and special thing that meant we lived in the best of possible worlds. Even that those who didn’t have this Democracy should be bombed and crushed until they had this Democracy whether they chose it or not (we chose it for them – begin to see the paradox?)”

Agreed that seems a paradox, but, when people do not live in democracy, they live in plutocratic dictatorships. It starts with dictators, but dictatorship is not stable, if it does not use demonic means, hence the adjective “plutocratic”.

This is not just theory, but practical considerations: look at Egypt now. Chief of the Army All Sissi had to make a coup against the Islamists. He went from military dictator (bad, but necessary) to elected president (re-establishment of representative democracy).

If Al Sissi had stayed a dictator (instead of becoming an elected president), he would have had to use more demonic means (because all those who voted for him would have been more or less against him, thus they would have had to be repressed).

Another frequent commenter, EugenR Lowy: “I have to disagree with you about direct democracy. Direct democracy is possible only at the local level and not at the level of big states. More than that I do not believe in the wisdom of the masses, as some obscure decision making theories claim. The masses at the end have tendency to turn to certain authority to lead them, when the situation is becoming too unstable and insecure, and we are back in the worst form of political leadership. To make right political decisions, the decision making must be aware of existence of realities as long term processes and not a stand-still state, which can be immediately corrected. How many among the masses understand this? Even the educated ones not necessarily are aware of this.”

I deeply believe in knowledge and wisdom, but I am not sure even a highly professional scientist is aware of the problematics of political and historical processes, knowledge that is necessary to formulate right opinion in the major political issues.”

There is every reason to believe that scientists are no experts at politics. Several Nobel Prize level scientists became Nazi Party members before Adolf Hitler (at least one of these Nobels had worked closely with Einstein).

Eugen’s point of view does not just condemn Direct Democracy, but even Representative Democracy: after all, in Representative Democracy it’s We The People who elects the representatives, all the way to the head of state.

Hitler’s Nazi Party got enough votes to control the Second Reich (!) Parliament. President Hindenburg thought he had no choice but to select Hitler as Chancellor, in a coalition government. Then the Nazis were able, through their “Patriot Act” to mangle German society enough to acquire total control.

Another example is the nephew of Napoleon I. Elected president of France, he made a coup against himself and baptized himself “Emperor”. Hitler actually copied that method, which had been inaugurated by Napoleon I.

Thus, when Eugen says We The People can make bad choices, it’s true, but it condemns all Democracy, Direct or not. It’s easy to make the argument that “Representative Democracy” is more dangerous than the direct form. Indeed, bad legislation can be reversed, whereas really bad leaders can’t be, once they have seized the Security apparatus.

Socrates and Plato had disserted about the subject of leadership ad nauseam. And incompetently. Whereas Pericles, earlier, advised by better philosophers, including his wife, made a splendid exposition of the “Open Society”. So it’s not a question of times long gone: Pericles expressed the thoughts of Progressive philosophers, whereas Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle were of an increasingly fascist and plutocratic persuasion.

Plato’s solution was the Philosopher-King”. That’s an idiotic notion, because a real philosopher has neither the time, nor the inclination, to be king. Similarly a real king has no time, nor inclination, to be a philosopher.

There were many attempts in the Sixteenth, Seventeenth, Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century, to make philosopher-kings. Those who really contributed to civilization positively were few: mostly Henri III and Henri IV of France (and perhaps Francois I, or, paradoxically Louis XVI). Then, of course, Peter the Great.

Both Henri III and Peter were great because they did not hesitate to assassinate execute whom they viewed as the most potent enemies of the very progressive States they led… Against determined Salafists (The Catholic League for Henri III, the “Old Believers” for Peter).

Aristotle, a student of Plato, wrote quite a bit about politics. Differently from Plato who hypocritically brandished the concept of philosophy, Aristotle went all-out for monarchy. His students, friends, executors of his will, were the plutocrats who destroyed Greek democracies, and launched the “Hellenistic States” (which lost on the battlefield, but later won the battles of ideas with the Roman Republic). So Aristotle Destroyed Democracy.

Modern Solution: The Grand Democratic Synthesis:

Socrates bemoaned that Athens voted on anything, and elected everybody, including generals. That, he said, made people who did not know how to make shoes in charge of making shoes.

The solution to this was found by the Roman State, and blossomed during the Middle-Ages. It was what I called DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTIONS.

Those use the principles of representative democracy and meritocracy inside, while, outside, being strictly subordinated to the government. Guilds, Academic, Medical, Judicial, Engineering organizations are examples. And the Army and Police ought to be foremost.

Example: In the modern German army, soldiers are supposed not just to obey the Military Code, but the German Constitution. In general, all armies ought to take their oath to the Constitution first… Or even its spirit (hence Egypt’s Al Sissi was correct).

Modern Solution: We The People Ought To Legislate:

The model is very simple: Switzerland.

Whereas plutocrats need, with the present system, to just buy 2,000 “representatives” to control the entire planet, they cannot buy billions of people: that would defeat their motivation, which is to rule over We The People, not buy them (that’s the taxation we need to apply to them).

So Who Is The Government?

There, to some extent, Switzerland again comes to the fore: it has an executive council of seven, and the president is elected for a year. The Army has only colonels. Generals are elected in case of imminent war.

The historical model here is the Roman Republic. Its executive system ought to be greatly imitated: A Consul had full powers for just one month (on the following month the other Consul had the powers).

In truth, the Roman Republic worked pretty much as a Direct Democracy, although this system was immensely, and way too complicated.

Instead, we should imitate the Athenian Directly Democratic system. With the Internet, the main problem of Athens, namely that voters found very difficult to come speak, debate, and vote at the National Assembly, can be easily solved.

So what about the objection that We The People is dumb, ill-informed, fickle, prone to madness? As I said, this is Plato-Aristotle objection, and just an excuse for plutocracy (preferably with the “philosopher” on top, gorging himself, as Aristotle did).

Those who do not get educated, and are not motivated for education, stay, indeed, dumb, ill-informed, fickle, prone to madness. But what we see in Switzerland is that the Direct Democracy has made We The People ever more motivated to learn stuff, ever more knowledgeable and wise. One can see the Swiss electorate think and change: as a proposition goes to a “votation”, the polls show opinions changing wildly as the weeks go by, and the debate evolves.

We The People can be educated, learn, and grow in wisdom as children do. Given a chance. The 2,000 individuals who presently rule the world, and their sponsors, who telerobotize them, and increasingly own the planet, quite a bit as the Saudi family does, do not want We The People to be given that chance. So let’s grab it.
