A teacher was 'killed' yesterday in Paris by a 'man', according to
the media. Those who want more details will have to wait until
tomorrow, when Peter Hitchens will tell us all that he was a
Apparently there was ‘little doubt’ the killing was an act of terror.
The ‘man’ was aged 18 and was Moroccan. This is what happens if
cultures elevate religions to highly uncriticiseable levels.
Let’s ban all religions, and maybe we will get some peace and quiet.
Well, we could try just banning religions which say it's OK to kill
In my heart I'm all for banning religions, but how do you ban a religion?
Would it not be better to have an immigration policy which discriminates
against belief systems which are fundamentally contradictory to our core
liberal values. A bit late now, but I think it would still do some good.
Unfortunately, our core liberal values have been corrupted by an emphasis on
tolerance without discrimination (using the original sense of the word).
Classical liberalism (nowadays seen as Fascism if you're a Millennial) wasn't
the free for all that is being encouraged to-day. Tolerance by its very nature
could not encompass ideas or behaviours that refused rational discussion and
reasoned debate; that would be self-defeating. The people who encourage what
masquerades as tolerance to-day (if you want to know just how tolerant they
are, observe how they react to any criticism of their ideas) are doing so in
order to attack our liberal values and Western civilisation at large.
Why is it that we have a Conservative government who absolutely refuse to get a
grip on illegal immigration, despite knowing that is just one of the things
that the public who elected them support? I realise now that it's true what a
number of people have been saying all along; some of us are paying attention to
the performance being enacted rather than what is going on behind the curtains.
