The noted blogger Fjordman is filing this report via Gates of Vienna.
For a complete Fjordman blogography, see The Fjordman Files. There is also a multi-index listing here.
In response to my earlier post about the Netherlands, Fjordman had the following to say in the comments.
My most important advice, not just to the Dutch but to Westerners in general, is to arm themselves immediately, first of all with knowledge of the enemy and pride in their own culture and heritage, but also physically.
Friedrich Nietzsche stated in the nineteenth century that “God is dead.” In 2008 it is fair to say that “The State is dead,” the State as the replacement God in which we placed our trust after the other God died.
Every single day we get more evidence that the authorities are totally incapable of protecting any semblance of security and freedom for their citizens. The only thing the State still seems to be capable of is indoctrinating our children with hatred of their own civilization and taking away our money so that it can be given to those who colonize our countries and abuse our children, verbally and physically.
What is happening in Western Europe in the early twenty-first century is a textbook case of a situation where the social contract is no longer upheld. The natives pay extremely high tax rates to nation states that no longer protect their borders and are both unwilling and incapable of upholding a bare minimum of law and order. The laws are anyway no longer passed with our interest in mind, but by dedicated Multiculturalists and Globalists specifically hostile to our interests.
As John Locke says in the Second Treatise on Government:
- - - - - - - - -
“The reason why men enter into society is the preservation of their property, and the end why they choose and authorize a legislative is that there may be laws made, and rules set, as guards and fences to the properties of all the members of the society, to limit the power and moderate the dominion of every part and member of the society….whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people….By this breach of trust they forfeit the power the people had put into their hands for quite contrary ends, and it devolves to the people, who have a right to resume their original liberty, and, by the establishment of a new legislative, (such as they shall think fit) provide for their own safety and security, which is the end for which they are in society.”
Thomas Jefferson stated that “I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.” He also said that “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms… disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes… Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
We would do well to heed those words.
