In the next few days, I will be posting information on the history of Cultural Marxism and Islamism. Although others have written excellent essays on these subjects, it is good to keep our perspective fresh and alive with new ideas and new views as we prioritize our goals. The attempt to understand what is oppressing democratic ideals and values as events unfold is reason enough to proceed. Fjordman has given us much as has Bawer, Horowitz, Robert Spencer, and Daniel Pipes, from the non-Muslim perspective; Walid Shoebat, Ayan Hirsi Ali, Wafa Sultan, and others have given us a more secular view of Islam, and the dangers of Wahbabism as it keeps coming at us in waves.
I think the danger to citizens of western democratic counties is to for us lose the sense of immediacy and urgency of the battle being waged on the world by the radical Islamists. The first article, by Linda Kimball, appeared a week ago in the American Thinker, and it gives us a brief, cogent look at Cultural Marxism, aka Multiculturalism.I make no claim to scholarship when it comes to delving and divining out the problems facing us today. Honestly, having grown up in the 40’s and 50’s, I am almost at a loss to digest what I see. Almost, but not quite. What I am is scared s***less, if not witless at the evil arising (I almost said descending onto) in the world. But I do know one thing: evil arises from within, not from without. It does give me the will to persevere.

"All the...large and small nationalities are destined to perish...in the revolutionary world storm... (A general war will) wipe out all...nations, down to their very names. The next world war will result in the disappearance from the face of the earth not only reactionary classes...but...reactionary peoples." ("The Magyar Struggle," Neue Rheinische Zeitung, Jan. 13, 1849)
