The future of the past


2016-06-12 The future of the past

I was walking around in the picturesque town of Lysa nad Labem, my companion reminiscing about the way it was when she went to elementary school there under the communists. The stores that are still the same, the things that are new and the bus-stop that moved. In a small side street, we passed a building with an open window. There were school children inside rehearsing some cheerful musical. Read more of this post

The care bear stare


2016-02-27 care bear-01

Someone sent a link to me to this video: Human rights travesty, then a day later, with an approving comment, she forwarded to me the following reply she got from a friend:

“He’s clever, and though it’s exaggerated, he’s saying what we all know is approximately true — but he’s leaving a lot out too, like alternatives.  Read more of this post

The glorious victory of Islam

Whether we like it or not, acknowledge it or not, Islam is at war with us and it is winning. Read more of this post

The failure of analysis


20151-1-21_Economist cover

Just as I was about to post my previous article, I got my latest issue of The Economist with five articles on the subject indicated on the cover. For a second I thought I may have to rewrite my post to refer to some ideas. I didn’t find any worthy of comment. All tactics dealing with symptoms. How to do better policing, how to fight the war in Syria, how to rearrange spheres of influence in the Middle-East.

The failure of imagination


2015-11-17 paris-pianist-john-lennon-imagine-01

I had a conversation with a 17 year old friend. I asked him what he thinks of the events in Paris. Well, he knew about it. …..and???? It is sad and upsetting, but with so many atrocities around the world, why are we paying so much attention to this one?

Islam IS the religion of peace

War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.
(George Orwell, 1984)

I grew up as an abused child. My step-father was an alcoholic sadist. I learned very early in my life the meaning of ‘peace’: continuous appeasement and unquestioning submission to the capricious will of those with power over us just so that they let us be.

I should be Slovak


2015-10-20 janosik026

I learned something very important last weekend: I should be a Slovak. If I cannot, I should definitely aspire to be. I learned it from an authoritative source, a Slovak.

Slovaks, you see, are the prettiest, strongest and smartest people in the world. They don’t take crap from nobody. Wherever they go, they succeed. This Slovak loves Canada because – as he said – ‘Canadians are stupid’. It’s easy to get rich here. It’s a lot more difficult when you are surrounded by equally smart, strong and pretty people.

The only good Muslim is a BAD Muslim


2015-06-17-good muslims

This post was prompted by comments made to one of my previous ones:

“Dude if you make a title that includes the words “the Muslims” as a group, you immediately set off the asshole detector.
Are you a libertarian?
Try thinking about people as individuals.”

I am not going to argue his assessment here, but I will try to answer the question that is lurking behind it: what does it mean to be a Muslim in the Western world? Read more of this post

Gestures, symbols, rights


2015-03-14 Symbols-of-faith

Rex Murphy commented on the Niqab Debate; then Peter Jaworsky added his.

 Are you all wound up about the prospect of a few women wearing the Niqab during the citizenship ceremony? Don’t be. It’s as much of a non-issue as symbolic issues generally are. Read more of this post

You don’t have to hate the Muslims


Someone commenting on my post about the Jews  said:
“But maybe we don’t have enough personal contact with any Muslims”

Clearly, I did not make myself clear in that post, so let me continue:
