Noting The Rebirth An Ancient Ideology

T SEEMS IT WAS SOMETIME in the mid-1980s, that I first read a rather long article in the Washington Post about this budding ideology called political correctness that had began creeping out of the liberal university system of these very United States, and had now begun to infiltrate the public space, not that it was an American invention, by any means. But it was being hosted by college students. I don't recall any condemnation of the professors who were teaching these 1980s kids, but it the author seemed persuaded that the movement was being driven by grass roots youth. We...

Bits Of Knowledge Go A Long Way Regarding Pakistan

n 1839, The empire-keen British sought to expand the borders of its colony of British India, by launching a war of conquest against the neighboring Pashtuns. The Pashtuns, as a fiercely independent tribal warrior people, resisted ferociously, so that the British conquest of them was not successful.

Nicking The "Late Feudalism" Attack Machine With The Vote

T TOOK ME A LONG TIME to realize that communism and socialism are just the rebirth of economic late feudalism.

Doesn't sound profound, but it hit the nail on the head for me: These rich advocates of socialism and communism, like a...


Allies In Arms, Masked, And Anonymous

OR THOSE OF YOU, ESPECIALLY ON THE LEFT who still deny that Islam is the Arab engine for global imperialism despite all evidence to the contrary, we offer the prospect that the best support for this claim comes through the words of , leader of the terrorist group Hezbullah, when the declared 'there is no Persian culture, only an Arab one'. And we find this at Amil Imani's terrific beacon of freedom with the contribution of a comment by Dianor: All of those under the general umbrella of the worldwide leftist movement including Islam have certain things in common.

No Colonial Legacy

O COLONIAL LEGACY REQUIRED. "The notion that America managed, under Bush, to lose some kind of special place in the affections of the Muslim world, a special place that it possessed because America "had no colonial legacy"—is the kind of thing you read in the cheesiest potted summaries of the postwar period ("because, boys and girls, America had no colonial legacy...."). Does Obama think that the Muslim attacks, from without and within, on the Hindus of India has to do with some "colonial legacy"? Does he think that the attacks on Christian Filipiinos in the southern Philippines, or on Buddhists...
