In recent years, some Muslims living in the West have revealed themselves to be the most derailed suicide terrorists, devil-worshiping executioners and bloodthirsty headhunters. Of course I’m not talking about real Muslims, so this essay has nothing to do with Islam either.
After World War II, historians scrambled to try to explain what could have caused such a destructive event. What was so different about the Europeans that had steered their actions towards the Holocaust? In attempts to answer such a question, historians and sociologists began pointing fingers at four pillars of European evil: nationalism, xenophobia, racism, and sexism.
Recently, Russia launched another attack to “bomb the shit out of ISIS”, as Donald Trump would say. The question is, why hasn’t the Obama administration done the same? If the US wanted to take out the Islamic State, they could have done so easily. Is there perhaps truth to Trump’s claim that President Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton through their actions helped create ISIS?
In line with President Vladimir Putin’s vision for the future, between 2009 and 2013, Russian investors acquired a Canadian mining company. That company, later known as Uranium One, traded in the material needed for nuclear weapons and power plants. It also controlled 20% of the total US uranium production.
In a shocking interview, German Minister of Finance Wolfgang Schäuble admitted he believed opening his country’s borders could save Germans from “degeneration through inbreeding”. He hopes to achieve this goal by mixing German genes with those of Arabs and Northern Africans. Perhaps the mass rapes that took place in Cologne and other cities last New Year’s Eve were just what Schäuble had in mind.
To enslave a people, one must first erase the memory it has of its own history. That’s how European colonials had succeeded in converting entire African peoples to Christianity. In doing so, the subjugated had not only lost their older pagan faith but had in many cases even forgotten their mother tongue. Even now, for example, hundreds of millions of Africans speak French, English, Dutch, a blend or a derivative of a European language. As a result, many have lost their oral traditions as well as the memory of their collective pre-colonial identity.
The Kungsleden is an over 250-mile long hiking trail through Europe’s last wilderness. The trail beings north of the polar circle in the Swedish town of Abisko. There, the trail snakes southward across Swedish Lapland, where herds of reindeer, moose, lynxes, and bears get in each others’ way. The hike rewards the wanderer with breathtaking views, desolate valleys, and wild streams of melting snow water that debouch into lakes and rivers. These are the veins that provided for the indigenous Laplanders, the Sami and their reindeer herds, for thousands of years.
