Islam does not belong in Europe. The reason for this has nothing to do with the truth or falsehood of the religion. It also has nothing to do with whether or not Islam is a “religion of peace.” It does not belong in Europe simply because it is not our religion. It is suited for a different people and a different place. Modifying it to suit Western sensibilities would be very difficult, more difficult certainly than the relatively minor alterations to Christianity that I have suggested. There is wide agreement among those on the Right that Islam does not belong in Europe, however it seems that often it is not recognized that the same principle applies to Christianity outside of the West. Being in favor of missionary activity and desiring the conversion of foreign cultures to Christianity, while opposing the efforts of other religions to do the same in the West is hypocrisy. The Bible does not need to be translated into any more languages nor is there any need for further missionary activity, with the possible exception of Christianity’s proper domain, that is, the West.
Some Christians might protest that it is not hypocrisy because Christianity is true and Islam is not. And a Muslim could make the exact same claim. This question could never be resolved through reasoned argument. The vast majority of Christians just like the vast majority of Muslims and the vast majority of the adherents of every other religion are believers in that religion simply because that is the religion they were born into and that is how they were raised. And that is just how it should be.
Another objection, seemingly more legitimate, is that Islam is inherently violent and a threat to the West, while Christianity is genuinely a religion of peace. This however does not hold up to any scrutiny. All the terror incidents combined are insignificant compared to the violence and destruction of the totally unjustified wars waged by the West in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and elsewhere with armies that include a significant number of Christians. I call the wars unjustified both because these countries obviously posed no serious threat to the West, but more importantly because the entire context of this conflict has been contrived and intentionally misrepresented. It is all based on the lie of 9/11.
There is no point for me to argue that 9/11 was an “inside job.” That has already been done elsewhere and at considerable length. What is important is that once it is understood that 9/11 was not as we’ve been told it is reasonable to conclude that more recent terror incidents in Paris or Brussels are also contrived and misrepresented. The conflict between Islam and the West is artificial and manufactured. Certainly the current situation with regard to mass immigration is unacceptable, but the intellectual and emotional climate created by the media makes finding a reasonable solution nearly impossible. Islam ultimately serves as a scapegoat and a distraction away from much more important concerns.
This is also true with regard to blacks in the United States. The damage caused by black crime is insignificant compared to “white collar” crime and especially when compared to the actions of corporations and governments that are not even considered crimes but nonetheless have devastating consequences, such as the wars previously mentioned. Drug dealers and thugs are not a serious threat to a civilization’s peace and security, corrupt CEOs, presidents, and judges are. Also, concern about the problems that desegregation causes serves as a distraction from the far more important problems created by the very existence of compulsory schooling, problems even greater than those caused by the individual actions of corrupt CEOs, presidents, and judges.
It is odd that the state believes that it has a fundamental and essential duty to ensure that every girl and boy receive an “education” lasting for years, requiring the collection and spending of vast sums of money, and the creation of a massive bureaucracy and infrastructure, while at the same time it has little or perhaps even no responsibility to ensure that everyone has healthy food, clean air and water, safe housing, or meaningful employment. It is odd at least if one accepts the standard explanation for the purpose of compulsory schooling. If it is understood that the purpose of schooling is exactly the same as the purpose of the media, that is mental conditioning, then it makes perfect sense. Schooling is not a service, certainly not a privilege, but rather as the “education” is non-voluntary and not compensated, it is theft of the students’ time and labor, it is a form of slavery. And if the education is successful, it will steal the students’ mind and will as well, making them slaves for life.
Schooling and the mass media work together to justify the current system. They define what is and what is not acceptable belief and behavior, what is and what is not a problem, and what is and what is not a solution to that problem, always answering these questions in ways that are to the advantage of government and corporate interests, and that shape and mold man to accept his debased and degraded existence. Alternative, that is, sane, just, wise, and truthful, views in opposition to the current system, are if possible excluded entirely or failing that, misrepresented and ridiculed.
But the conditioning goes deeper than that. It is not only a matter of value systems or the interpretation of facts, but rather determining the difference between fact and fiction. The conditioning from modern education and mass media is so powerful as to have blurred the boundaries between reality and fantasy. What does this mean? It means that the “terrorist attacks” of September eleventh justify the war on terror and the national security state, the “Holocaust” justifies the continual demonization of National Socialism and Adolf Hitler as the ultimate embodiment of evil and hysteria about antisemitism and racism, and the “Apollo Missions” justify the foundation of our entire society, the true demons of our age, evolutionism, technologism, and scientism. These events are not as we’ve been told. They were faked. They are lies.
Mental conditioning is lethal. Islam is instead a relatively minor concern, that is not only not a threat, but a potential ally, if the conditioning can be overcome. The destruction of society, and the degradation of man that is taking place in the West, is also taking place everywhere else, including the Middle East, and any genuine Muslim is undoubtedly opposed to that. There is a difference between being against multiculturalism and mass immigration and seeing a foreigner as an enemy. Islam is not our enemy. And if what I have written is not enough, listen to Evola who spoke highly of Islam, and to Guenon who converted.
Finally, I must again return to the question of Christianity and the Church, specifically the top of the Church leadership. What exactly are they doing while all this is going on? What are they trying to accomplish? Why does the Church seem so completely unable to challenge all the false and destructive ideologies and beliefs of our time? I’m afraid that I must conclude that either the leadership of the Church is astoundingly naive and incompetent, or it is to at least some degree complicit in what is going on. Is it not obvious that Pope Francis was chosen for this very moment of crisis, and that he is only fulfilling his responsibility, that is to prevent the Church from being a bulwark against further subversion, and even to encourage more subversion? Without a religious foundation most people are defenseless against the mental conditioning and spiritual degradation of modern society but even though this is so, until the Church serves as a legitimate opposition to the current direction of the West, and provides a genuine alternative, one leading to the restoration of Tradition, it is unjust to expect people to support it. What I have written about Christianity should not be understood as an attack either on the Christian faith or on individual Christians. I have never suggested that Christianity does not belong in the West, nor that it should be considered an enemy. But as it is, or at least was, the religion of the West, and not a foreign religion like Islam, I hold it to a higher standard. While I do not accept many elements of Christian doctrine, I have the highest respect for the Christian tradition. Like Evola, in his short work Orientations, I wait for the moment when the Church will find its way, and is ready and able to lead Europe and the West out of the darkness.
