Democracy Reform

Sir Winston Churchill once said that democracy is the worst form of government except for all the rest. He is right. Its the best form of government but it also has its flaws. I think that its flaws endanger democracy and needs to be fixed. This blog is for like minded people who want to see democracy improved. I invite people to sumbit essays. I will publish even those I do not agree with so long as I find them interesting.

Who or what made Breivik kill?

After Anders Breivik committed his atrocious murders in Utoya Island, the Left was quick to blame anti-Islam writers like Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller and my friend Fjordman etc.

But that is a lie. The fault ultimately lies with the Left. According to David Wood of Answering Muslims, Breivik explained why he resorted to violence in his 1,500 page manifesto.

First he had a bad experience with Muslim immigrants in his home town of Oslo. Then he read about Islam and became convinced that Islam is a bad religion. Then he joined politics and tried to change things democratically. But when he criticized Islam, he found that people would accuse him of being a bigot. Political correctness, which the Left created to stifle free speech, made it impossible to change things democratically. So he decided on violent revolution.

Its the Left's fault. They have created an atmosphere of political correctness amongst politicians and the news media where you can't criticize Islam. Cultural Marxists (or Gramscian Marxists) have penetrated the mass media and their hold is strong. Antonio Gramsci, an Italian Marxist, started this "long march through the institutions", where ideas that enable the triumph of Marxism are spread throughout newspapers, universities etc to change the culture of the people. He reasoned that traditional western culture must be destroyed because it supports the capitalist class. Hence the Left support Islam and multiculturism.

If you don't want to blame the Left, then you can blame John F Kennedy, a hero of the American Left. After all, Breivik was influenced by him too. Kennedy said:

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."

Its the Left that has made peaceful revolution impossible. Breivik had in the 1990s made up his mind on the need for violent revolution. That was before Robert Spencer, Pamela Gella etc started writing their blogs.
