Drop Your Ego & Do What is Necessary

886 words

RapistsWelcome [1]I intended to write about the recent shooting in Philadelphia, but my train of thought took me to an unexpected destination. The specifics of this shooting were especially important to me because the shooter, who was a Black Muslim, openly admitted to shooting a white man, a police officer who was just sitting in his car at the time of the incident. The Black Muslim not only admitted to the shooting, he boldly and proudly claimed the shooting was in support of Islam and ISIS.

As soon as the Mayor of Philadelphia became aware of the attempted murder of one of our civil servants, he immediately spoke to the media and said: “It is terrible, and it does not represent the religion [Islam] in any way, shape, or form.” Most might agree with the new Mayor of Philadelphia, but I do not.

Recent events in Europe have taught me one thing: Islam is completely incompatible with Western values, culture, and tradition. This is not about terrorism, although it must not be downplayed in order to maintain a non-discriminatory attitude towards Muslims.

Since its inception the West has experienced, and will continue to experience, internal conflict. Before the introduction of mass immigration, these internal conflicts have been the result of ethnic tension and religious, political, ideological, and even philosophical differences. But they are our conflicts. They are our responsibility to resolve, and our responsibility alone.

Europe is like one big family, and every big family has turmoil that can only be resolved internally. I am sure everyone can identify with family dysfunction on some level. I am sure that everyone has experienced an outsider who has offered an unwelcome opinion on family matters. Regardless of how correct the outsider’s assessment may be, the most common reaction is to defend your family, no matter how dysfunctional. This is a natural reaction. There is a primordial urge to defend your family from outsiders, even if it is just from petty slander.

This primordial urge to defend what is ours is woven into our DNA. It is as natural and automatic as a heartbeat. Doing what is necessary to maintain our heartbeat is instinctual. It is beyond good and evil. This is not uniquely Western. The survival instinct is not even uniquely human. It is a necessity for life in general. But what is uniquely human is our ability to attach morality to necessity, sometimes confusing the two with our unique capacity to love and empathize.

Out of this capacity to love and empathize, liberalism was born, and well-intentioned as it may be, it is an ideology as flawed as the humans who gave birth to it. Liberalism is pure ego personified. Modern liberalism can conflate what is necessary with what is immoral. For example, taking your family’s side when an outsider is criticizing what is uniquely yours is a sign of honor and loyalty. But liberalism criticizes such motives. Liberalism has invented a morality that begins and ends with the individual and his choices, which leaves out our blood ties and instinctual love of our own.

Individual freedom is valuable. But the survival of a people is more important. And when they conflict, collective survival should come first. That said, the current immigration trends in Europe and America threaten the survival of our people. Therefore, it is both necessary and good to end immigration. It is simply a matter of Western survival. (Western civilization is the only civilization endangered by immigration.)

Liberalism itself will not survive mass Third World immigration. Liberalism is the political expression of Enlightenment Philosophy. Liberalism is an expression of Western people, and can only be maintained by Western people. When the West dies, liberalism will die with it.

Personally, I do not want to maintain liberalism, with its fetishization of individualism and equality. But I view this as a family quarrel. My ego is in check. I would not side with ISIS out of anti-liberalism. I would gladly go to war in defense of my dysfunctional family members. I would defend them until my last breath before taking the side of any non-Western outsider, especially if the future of our folk — our family as a whole — depended on it.

Europe is in our hearts, it is in our souls. We are Europe, and our political differences are a direct manifestation of European diversity. This is a call to re-awaken our survival instinct. This is an attempt to appeal to my leftist European brothers and sisters, as dysfunctional as I may find you. Are you willing to risk all of your political progress? Are you willing to risk religious tolerance? Are you willing to risk equal, women’s, and gay rights? Are you willing to risk all that you have done for your ideology, by taking the side of an outsider who holds you and your family — no matter how dysfunctional you may find us — in contempt?

We might not get along, but are we willing to destroy your entire bloodline for the sake of your own ego?

Islam is not just another politically correct victim group to signal about and coddle. It is an existential threat to whatever remains of Western civilization. Only we can make our future, but to do so, we have to make survival paramount, and we have to do it together.
