If you want peace, make it a bad bet to attack you. there will always be those who desire what you have, or to take you down a rungs. We have a responsibility to our children to ensure that they are safe, and the biggest threat we currently face is islamic fascism, communism might be staging a comeback, and the neocommunism of today's hard left poses a fifth collumn danger right within our walls.~RollerDave
Right on, Roller!
Antonio Gramcsci's development of multiculturalism as a political tool and the West's buy in to it via academia and our pols have fostered a fifth column. The words of Khrushchev ring true when he said 'We will bury you', although with a twist. We will bury ourselves (Western Civilization, that is).
I am beginning to wonder if the purpose of 20th century cults besides control of people and accumulation of wealth is to foster in their communitys or in the freed population a Gramscian multi-cultural live and let live philosophy. They join the ranks of the fifth column that RollerDave speaks of.
Neville Chamberlain sought to appease the Nazi regime and limit the expansion of the Soviet Union through the Munich Agreement, but it didn’t give Britain peace, limit communism or stop the Nazis. The current war was initiated not as a defensive action to avenge 9-11 nor to rid Iraq of a dictator despite what GWB still believes (or pretends too). He has been bought and paid for by an industry dependent on a region of the world that subscribes to an ideology diametrically opposed to the West. Pulling out of Iraq and ceasing all US military actions anywhere will not bring peace, nor will it solve our greedy imperialistic ways. However, that is another topic.
I will say this for the peace movement; it has given us some good music. The Guthries, Pete Seeger, Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan are some of my favorites. I now just find myself less able to tolerate some of their philosophies.
