Baron Bodissey, this week, has a terrific essay identifying the crucial components of Islam’s attack on the West:
Covert funding based on successful long-tern extortion via the manipulation of petroleum prices.
The use of criminals, psychos, and malcontents as cannon fodder.
And so we have what might be called a Demonic Convergence, a confluence of destructive impulses that Islam gathers unto itself. In the terms of Chaos Theory, Islam is a “basin attractor”, an asymptotic solution to all the differential equations of nihilistic human behavior.
Any impulse that longs to destroy Western Civilization — which, for the modern world, means all civilization — will gravitate towards Islam. The criminal gets ideological justification for his behavior, the sadist gets to rape and murder to his heart’s content, and the hippie radical gets to stick it to the Man for all eternity.
This is what we’re up against: the Big Tent of ideological nihilism. The closer any given society gets to the behavioral sink, the more Islamic it tends to become.
And, finally, the habitual treason of the journalistic clerisy of the West, providing the essential Fifth Column.
A must-read article.
