The Defense of Europe: If Not Now, When?

Submitted by Mathijs Koenraadt on Mon, 02/22/2016 - 11:34

Arabs, guardians of Islam and its one and a half billion supporters, know that one day their oil will run out. Then their only source of income will disappear because Arab nations don’t produce anything else the world needs. But in order to secure Islamic power on the world stage, Arab leaders must go looking for a new source of income.

Europe is willingly offering them that source: an aging, economically weakened continent that has fallen asleep, inhabited by naive suckers. If now isn’t the time to conquer Europe, when is?

Africa's Population Potential

The UN projects that the African population will grow to 4.4 billion individuals by the end of this century, over a third of the entire global population. Despite its ethnically diverse peoples, Africa will not only become the world’s largest consumer market but potentially also the biggest supply of cheap labor to the developed world.

An overlooked question, however, is whether African peoples will submit to such a secondary role willingly, or perhaps choose to conquer the world on foot instead.

“Faith in a holy cause is to a considerable extent a substitute for the lost faith in ourselves,” wrote American longshoreman Eric Hoffer.[1] Still today, people spoiled by wealth prefer to escape reality, rather than having to admit migrants threaten their civilization. The faith in progressive appeasement politics has become a substitute for the lost faith in ourselves.

“We had to learn ourselves and, furthermore, we had to teach the despairing men, that it did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us.”—Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning[1]

On September 6th, 1992, hunters found a young man’s decomposing body in the deserted wilderness of Alaska. They would later find out it was the body of 24-year-old ‘Chris’ (Christopher) McCandless, who since 1990 had completely cut all ties with his parents, sister, and family. Since the start of the year when he was found, Chris had been living off wild plants and the animals he shot dead with his rifle. His story became known to the general public after writer Jon Krakauer wrote the best-selling and later filmed book Into the Wild about it.

“Laugh not at such marriages! What child hath not had reason to weep over its parents?”—Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathustra[1]

Newborn babies love their parents unconditionally, but they don’t always naturally receive back the love they give. Under normal conditions, that wouldn’t be much of a problem if society fulfilled its corrective function to call parents who maltreat their children to order. Reality, however, proves otherwise.

The Effect of Emotional Abuse: The Blows that Damage One's Self-Image

Submitted by Mathijs Koenraadt on Thu, 02/04/2016 - 11:35

More than physical abuse, emotional maltreatment damages a child’s self-image, because it communicates a stronger message of negative worth than a smack or a kick.[1] Parents sabotage their child’s self-worth by “blaming it, belittling it, humiliating it, intimidating it, terrorizing it [and] secluding it.”[2]
