"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another"
We, in the west, are in a struggle to preserve our western values and our western ideals. We face an overwhelming challenge from muslem religious extremist who are bent on not only destroying western civilization, but in the process taking the middle east and other muslem countries back one thousand years to the time of the Caliphate. They are doing this through terror in the west and tyranny in the east.
As strange and illogical as it seems, they have a great many supporters. They also have a great many apologists who are willing to turn a blind eye to the radicalization in both the middle east and western countries. Who in the name of "political correctness" or "cultural sensitivity" are willing to allow these hateful idealogies a place at the table.
This is not exactly a new phenomenon as we have faced radical ideologies in the past that have threatened western civilization. We faced the scourge of fascism and the equally brutal menace of communism. Unfortunately, by the time we woke up to these challenges, we had to confront them with force which lead to tremendous bloodshed and death.
It is time to confront the evil and stand up for the western values we hold dear. To say forthrightly that we reject any ideology that enslaves people either physically, mentally or spiritually. That the western ideas of freedom of thought can not co-exist with a philosophy of that enslaves the mind. That it is time for decent people to confront these hateful philosophies and combat them as we have done in the past.
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
