The very recent terrorist attack in Manchester, where 22 people have been killed and more than one hundred injured, inbred in Islamic terrorism promoted by ISIS, made me think again that we, civilized world, due to the ineptitudes nurtured by political correctness, liberalism, progressivism, globalism, etc., are living in a time of a political somnambulism. And when I said “we”, I obviously refer to our emasculated leaders who, in a perfect denial regarding the danger of that terrorism, compete in a common concert in declaring the same platitudes repeated after each act of terror but in fact doing nothing and let us to be victims of barbarism. Look to just a few examples identically printed after each atrocities: -“Please keep the victims & their families in your thoughts.” Canada “Our thoughts go out to the victims of the Manchester attack and their families.” Italy -“Germany stands by your side.” – Merkel , chancellor who open the flood gate of Europe to a false refugee crise. “-All our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those who have been affected,” said May of UK who, at the approaching election, she might lose.
In the same time, the terrorists, with a free and easy access to the electronic media, in jubilation posted their hate towards us, civilized nations: “the beginning is in Brussels and Paris, and in London we form a state,” meaning ISIS.
This symptom of political somnambulism is so deeply entrenched in the brains of leftist politicians and media which supports them, as such they refuse to acknowledge that these acts of terror are the result of their own makings: multiculturalism with social elements devoid of culture and incapable of being assimilated in our civilization, globalization which dissipates all the national characteristics which are replaced with barbaric traditions, and its corollary of cancellation of all the borders which facilitates free movement of various hoards of terrorists and , above all, hiding their social and political impotence behind a ludicrous notion of political correctness which nobody can intelligently define.
Due to very well organized leftist propaganda a good part of populace cannot understand the danger and continue to vote in power the same somnambul demagogues with a disastrous effect to the future of our civilization and culture.
We also notice a defeatism disguised as pacifism from those ignorant in their own history and infected by laziness as such not to stand and defend themselves. The best example is the former “hippy” movement (“make love not wars”!!!) which produced hollywoodian characters like Hanoi Jane or today Madonna.
A branch of pacifism is also practiced by some Christians. Those who maintain that it is enough to pray and to proclaim the faith in Jesus will accomplish nothing except appeasement . Recently Obama was hailed as a new (political) Messiah and look where the world is now. I have an utmost respect for the belief similar to the first Christians of catacombs . If the entire Christianity will kneel and pray , the barbarian will win. In 12th century Jerusalem would not have been liberated for one hundred years if Christians would have resumed their fight to prayers only. In order for Christianity to survive, we have to pay attention to that passage from the Bible (John 2:15) where is stated : And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;
Middle way or middle solution doesn’t exist.
The present road of defeatism and appeasement is paved with lawyers who are ministers of defense or with ministers selected based not on merit but on the skin colour and national background, some even not respecting the uniform and the flag. The brave military personnel who can win in any battle cannot fight because they are corseted in various idiotic rules as how not to have “collateral damages” or how to protect enemy’s traditions and habits as such in the last almost 20 years the terrorism flourishes and expands.
We have to learn from the history of Sparta, as an example, where the fighters where taught by their mothers, before the battle : “Another woman handed her son his shield, and exhorted him: Son, either with this or on this.” (Plutarch) Now, in Hollywood , female clowns like Madonna dreams to kill the president.
In this time of political somnambulism the politicians masquerading in leaders , between saving their countries, culture and civilization or to impose the “political correctness” they prefer the last one, even they cannot explain what it is. Our legal systems created to protect us are so edulcorated that we read ineptitudes like: we cannot arrest them because they did not YET committed any crime. We cannot spread the country with preventive camps like in Guantanamo. Between seeing children butchered by terrorist acts and seeing some Guantanamo camps , it will be better for everyone Guantanamo sites.
We defeat ourselves because we let somnambulists to take care of our lives, culture and civilization and we do not elect statesmen with love for the country in lieu of politicians in love with their party’s interests.
When we will wake up, it will be too late.
Manchester and other tragedies are just a preamble to what is coming.
