It seems that John Miller, former senior intelligence officer thinks we should stop all Muslim immigration immediately. In this article he points out the pitfalls that we- on this blog – have been pointing out for quite a while. A sober and interesting assessment.
Do we as a culture have the intestinal fortitude to take such a step? It would take a realisation that we are not only making a critique of certain values and behaviours that are not part of the Judeo-Christian West but also that we actually understand who we are. And that is the sticky point. Do we know who we are as a civilisation or are we lost in the ‘Anything goes…’ mentality where the paragon of virtue seems to be to say ” I did it my way…’ ? ( whether it’s being a rock star, businessman or terrorist). Has the shared sense of values gone? Or are we just not stating it clearly enough?
