Loyalty to a civilization requires loyalty to the people

January 29, 2007

Loyalty to a civilization without loyalty to the people is meaningless. The people are the physical embodiment of the civilizaiton, not their furniture, houses, spelling and grammar, or even libraries and webpages. Change the people and the rest turns into dust.

The elites in the West oppose the above completely. To the elites, there can be loyalty to a civilization without loyalty to the people. Elites redefine loyalty. The people are always the Archie Bunkers to them.

The response to the attack on WTC in 1993 shows this. No change in Muslim immigration. No loyalty. The response to the WTC 2001 and Pentagon attacks was the same. These were Archie Bunkers who died. So no stop in Muslim immigration.

This concept is embodied in immigration. This is why the West is dying, because in fact, without loyalty to the people, nothing survives. The people are everything.

There can be no loyalty to a civilization that has any meaning without loyalty to the people. Elites have no loyalty to the people, so the civilization dies. The solution is to replace the elites.

Bernard Lewis illustrates this lack of loyalty to the people, in the view of Lawrence Auster:

The Über Suspect by Lawrence Auster

Auster quoting Bernard Lewis

“Europeans are losing their own loyalties and their own self-confidence,” he said. “They have no respect for their own culture.” Europeans had “surrendered” on every issue with regard to Islam in a mood of “self-abasement,” “political correctness” and “multi-culturalism,” said Lewis, who was born in London to middle-class Jewish parents but has long lived in the United States.

Auster then says Lewis is in effect, PC, phony conservative, because Lewis doesn’t admit immigration is what produced this problem and stopping it is part of the cure.

“More Young Islamics Back Sharia Law ” at Raw Story:

“Allah on 480 occasions in the Holy Koran extols Muslims to wage jihad. We only fulfil God’s orders”

according to Baitullah Mehsud.

“Pakistan Taleban vow more violence,” from the BBC:

Baitullah seemed a man with only jihad (holy war) on his mind. During the interview he quoted several verses from the Koran to defend his stance that foreign forces must be evicted from Islamic countries.

“Allah on 480 occasions in the Holy Koran extols Muslims to wage jihad. We only fulfil God’s orders. Only jihad can bring peace to the world,” he says.
