Though the numbers are not clear, what is obvious is that Islam is the greatest murder machine in history bar none, possibly exceeding 250 million dead. Possibly one-third to one-half or more of all those killed by war or slavery in history can be traced to Islam; and this is just a cursory examination.
Nevertheless, not all Christians burned witches or supported The Inquisition. Not all Germans supported the Nazis. Not all Americans supported or condoned slavery. And most Muslims are peaceful.
Judging people based solely on what they themselves individually do and/or advocate and/or support is the only ethically valid methodology.
The unappreciated reality is that when the patriot Right and radical Left refer to the US system as fascistic, they have part of the truth but not the whole analysis. This is due to the blinders both sides wear concerning state power. Moreover, the criticisms sometimes fail to take account of America's very unique strain of fascism. This political program is distinct in every nation, always taking a different form but with some general themes in common. US fascism is a most insidious mixture of the key ingredients while maintaining the necessary nuance to snooker the masses, the media, and the respectable folks across the spectrum.
And given recent history, I'm wondering whether it would even matter anyway. The courts may decide that eligibility is essentially a political decision, and that the supreme authority in a political decision is the voters themselves.
That does put it in perspective, doesn't it?
That 120m rise occurred over a lot more than 50 years, however. I expect the next fifty will be a tenth of what's predicted above.
And yeah, the hysterics are unreachable.
Monopolies always provide poor service; it's inherent to being a monopoly. So you must either accept the consequences, or change your stance about the legitimacy of having a monopoly provide the service.
No, that doesn't mean there should be no rules, just no rulers. Rules should not be made by a monopolist of rule making. Rules should not be enforced by a monopolist of rule enforcement. And whether or not the rules have been followed should not be decided by a monopolist of ultimate decision making -- especially not when those rules are intended to limit or control the monopolist who makes the decisions!
