"History is philosophy teaching by example." (Lord Bolingbroke)

Folks, I saw this article by Patrick Goodenough, International Editor this morning (February 14, 2006).

Please read the extracts I have taken from it:

" An Australian lawmaker has set off a storm after comments tackling two subjects many consider taboo -- the country's high abortion rate and fears of a Muslim 'takeover.'Citing estimates of 100,000 abortions a year, Danna Vale, a member of Prime Minister John Howard's ruling coalition, told a press conference that Australians were "aborting ourselves almost out of existence."Vale linked the concern with worries about the growth of Australia's Muslim community.She recalled reading a newspaper article in which an imam from a leading mosque in Sydney was quoted as saying Australia would be a 'Muslim nation within 50 years.' I didn't believe him at the time, but you know when you actually look at the birthrates and when you look at the fact that we are aborting ourselves almost out of existence by 100,000 abortions every year ... you multiply that by 50 years, that's five million potential Australians we won't have here."

Two points here: A decreasing number of non-Muslim Aussies and an increasing number of Muslims in Australia equals a Muslim takeover of Australia.

Please get past this non-equation. An awful lot of people see being "non-Muslim" as the key to
winning this conflict.

T'ain't so. The real key to winning this conflict is the possession of knowledge, of how to think about the problem and of a dedication to reality.

The real problem isn't that we have to few people who aren't Muslims, or that we're in any danger of having too few non-Muslims. The REAL danger is that we, the infidels of the world, aren't teaching our children, while Islam makes serious efforts with their kids from the moment they're born. Literally from the moment they're born.

A lot of us think that a decrease in the non-Muslim population, especially in Europe (and now maybe Australia), is a significant danger.

We have plenty of non-Muslims to win this thing, but we have a school system that has undermined our understanding of the importance of proper thinking in this war of ideas, of culture, of civilization, ever since its founding in the mid-1800s.

Take a look around; how many liberals do you see who are Muslims? Kerry, Kennedy, Dean, Pelosi, etc.--none of them are Muslims. In fact, delete them from the scene, along with all the postmodernists, which would reduce the non-Muslims, and we would have a BETTER chance of winning!

The postmodernists in our schools (and in journalism, the judiciary, etc.) are the best friends the Muslims ever had. If you go back in history, you will see that they spring from the same philosophical seed, and that is, that the collective, the group, the state, is more important than the individual.

The solution is to teach our kids a proper philosophy, and I mean across the board, all five branches of it: Ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, esthetics, and politics.

Let's not distract ourselves by saying that a reduced number of non-Muslims will impact our chances of winning; it won't.

All that increasing our numbers without increasing our knowledge will accomplish is to provide the Muslims with more dhimmis.

We really have to get on the stick about this issue.
