Dictatorship of Faith and Force
“The truly and deliberately evil men are a very small minority; it is the appeaser who unleashes them on mankind; it is the appeaser’s intellectual abdication that invites them to take over. When a culture’s dominant trend is geared to irrationality, the thugs win over the appeasers.” – Ayn Rand
First, let me state that all religions are compatible with any totalitarian type of government or dictatorship. Political dictators
or mystics understand the power of religion or the occult in maintaining a dictatorship founded upon non-objective laws and the ideal. History has it that all dictators (mystics of muscle) and anti-reason/anti-man philosophers or religious leaders (mystics of spirit) promised the ideal. It is the ideal that ruled most of mankind’s history. It is no surprise that Adolf Hitler’s Nazi party grew out of several occult groups that sprang up in the late 19th century as a reaction to the advanced materialism and technology of the era. These occult groups preached of the coming of a new Messiah that would save Germany. The German mystics believed that Hitler was perhaps the “chosen one” to save the German people. (In regard to this, I recommend Stephen Hicks’ documentary entitled Nietzsche and the Nazis.
The politicians in Europe continue to appease Islam simply because they are in state of denial. They cannot believe that somebody has waged a global war against them.
Perhaps only a few people know that when Hitler was still assembling his Nazi army, he formed a strong alliance with the Mufti, a Muslim legal expert who is empowered to give rulings on religious matters. In 1941, Haj Amin al-Husseini fled to Germany and met with Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Joachim Von Ribbentrop and other Nazi leaders. He wanted to persuade them to extend the Nazis’ anti-Jewish program to the Arab world. The Mufti sent Hitler 15 drafts of declarations he wanted Germany and Italy to make concerning the Middle East. One called on the two countries to declare the illegality of the Jewish home in Palestine. Furthermore, “they accord to Palestine and to other Arab countries the right to solve the problem of the Jewish elements in Palestine and other Arab countries, in accordance with the interest of the Arabs and, by the same method, that the question is now being settled in the Axis countries.”
In November 1941, the Mufti met with Hitler, who told him the Jews were his foremost enemy. Hitler rejected the Mufti’s requests for a declaration in support of the Arabs, however, telling him the time was not right. The Mufti offered Hitler his “thanks for the sympathy which he had always shown for the Arab and especially Palestinian cause, and to which he had given clear expression in his public speeches….The Arabs were Germany’s natural friends because they had the same enemies as had Germany, namely….the Jews….” Hitler replied:
Germany stood for uncompromising war against the Jews. That naturally included active opposition to the Jewish national home in Palestine….Germany would furnish positive and practical aid to the Arabs involved in the same struggle….Germany’s objective [is]…solely the destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere….In that hour the Mufti would be the most authoritative spokesman for the Arab world. The Mufti thanked Hitler profusely.
The world witnessed the genocidal, evil alliance of the Catholic Church and the royal families in Europe during the medieval era. This mystical bond made the Pope infallible and the sole dictator of the dark ages. The Pope who was regarded as the representative of God on earth and served as commander-in-chief of the European dictators whose power depended upon his blessings and holy encyclicals.
All dictatorships in the past centuries survived on the morality of altruism. It is this self-sacrificing morality that holds man as a sacrificial animal- that man must place the interest of others above his own. All totalitarian regimes and their dictators depended on the influence of the mystics of spirit (e.g. religious leaders, philosophers, thinkers). If most mystics of spirit preached the morality of altruism, which served as the strong foundations of all totalitarian territories for thousands of years, Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche rejected the notion of altruism, thus conceptualizing his own political philosophy that guided dictators of the past century.
According to Ayn Rand, “Nietzsche’s rebellion against altruism consisted of replacing the sacrifice of oneself to others by the sacrifice of others to oneself.”
“He proclaimed that the ideal man is moved, not by reason, but by his “blood,” by his innate instincts, feelings and will to power—that he is predestined by birth to rule others and sacrifice them to himself, while they are predestined by birth to be his victims and slaves—that reason, logic, principles are futile and debilitating, that morality is useless, that the “superman” is “beyond good and evil,” that he is a “beast of prey” whose ultimate standard is nothing but his own whim. Thus Nietzsche’s rejection of the Witch Doctor consisted of elevating Attila into a moral ideal—which meant: a double surrender of morality to the Witch Doctor.”
Today we are witnessing the rise of a new form of dictatorship founded on the mystical base of religion. The dictators in the
Middle East clearly learned a great deal from Hitler’s Mein Kampf, and this knowledge led them to wage their own form of struggle- that is, Jihad, as commanded by their nomadic mystic who created his own religion in the 7th century A.D. With the help of oil profits and modern technology produced by civilized scientists and businessmen in the past century, this mystical, totalitarian religion was gradually released from the wilderness of the Middle East to wage a treacherous war against Western civilization, capitalism, and the individual.
The theocratic government of Iran, that killed and suppressed its own people, has been trying to fool the United States and other civilized countries by claiming that its nuclear program is peaceful. How can a dictatorial regime, which is determined to kill and suppress its own people who are critical of the status quo, be trusted in possessing such a dangerous technology? People of today should read Qur’an to better understand the global problem posed by religious extremist groups. In Qur’an there’s this principle of Taqiyya, which literally means “concealing, precaution, guarding.” This principle of lying is employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies. In practical terms it is manifested as dissimulation, lying, deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or preemptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralizing any criticism of Islam or Muslims. This principle encourages the Muslims to lie for the sake of their deity.
The politicians in Europe continue to appease Islam simply because they are in state of denial. They cannot believe that somebody has waged a global war against them. The extremists have been invading Europe and the United States for decades through migration and infiltration, and they have been influencing politics through the power of Saudi or oil money.
Now there’s a very interesting story about how the Saudi dictators suppress their people’s liberty and freedom of speech in the name of religion.This news story published on Fox News is entitled Saudi Bloggers Shatter the Kingdom’s Silence and Censorship.
Ayn Rand once wrote the following:
“The truly and deliberately evil men are a very small minority; it is the appeaser who unleashes them on mankind; it is the appeaser’s intellectual abdication that invites them to take over. When a culture’s dominant trend is geared to irrationality, the thugs win over the appeasers. When intellectual leaders fail to foster the best in the mixed, unformed, vacillating character of people at large, the thugs are sure to bring out the worst. When the ablest men turn into cowards, the average men turn into brutes.”
There is no need to elaborate on this great quotation, because this is simply what is happening in every part of the world today.
Here’s part of the story:
For Ahmed Al-Omran, a 25-year-old Saudi blogger, this has been a particularly frustrating week.
To begin with, an ultra-conservative cleric issued a fatwa concluding that people who oppose segregating Saudi men and women should be killed. Then Al-Omran was forced by death threats to remove pictures he had posted on his Web site of university women clad from head to toe in their black abayas, the shrouds they are required to wear in public.
And finally, Saudi Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abd al-Aziz al Sa’ud not only banned women and men from mixing together at the Riyadh book fair but also the display of books deemed “incompatible with religion and values.”
“This country is so f—-ed up” Al-Omran tweeted, referring thousands of loyal fans to his latest postings on these and other topics on his English-language blog, Saudi Jeans.
Ahmed Al-Omran is not a household name outside of Saudi Arabia. Neither is Eman Al Nafjan, a 31-year-old mother of three, whose Saudi Woman’s Web Blog in English has a solid, growing base of 500 visitors a day. And few outsiders may have heard of Basma Al-Mutlaq, whose English-language blog, Saudi Amber, advocates an end to what Eman Al Nafjan calls the kingdom’s “gender apartheid,” the religious- and cultural-based laws and traditions that have kept Saudi women both separate and unequal in their own land for decades.
But within the kingdom, such bloggers are Internet stars. Their readers and fans flood the Internet with spirited, supportive and angry commentary that is expanding the limits of what can be spoken about in this conservative, traditionally closed and painfully diplomatic society.
While the Saudi Ministry of Interior sees the Internet mostly as a threat — the nation’s top venue for the recruitment of young, impressionable Saudis to the ranks of Al Qaeda and its affiliated and inspired violent groups — thousands of open-minded young Saudis have embraced the blogosphere to shatter the silence about problems long considered taboo — the separation of the sexes, sexual abuse of women and children, child marriage, the lack of democracy in the kingdom, the repression of the minority Shiite Muslim community, and even corruption among the nation’s senior officials, if not yet the royal family.
