Seven Questions for Young Socialists

Since socialism (including its more tyrannical forms: communism, fascism, nazism) has become more appealing to young people in the United States today, I have a few serious questions to ask them. These questions are to incite serious thought, not invectives or slogans or platitudes (which is what I get in response much of the time when I have debated committed socialists). Kindly think about these questions, and if you think it is worth it, pass them on to your friends.

Swedes should be prepared for war, terror – and “fake news”

For the first time in 30 years, “If the war comes” folder will be sent to all Swedish households again. The folder will prepare the Swedes for war and terror, but also on so-called “information impact”.

“If the war comes” (Om kriget kommer) was developed by the Defense Staff, and was first distributed to all Swedish households during World War II in 1943.

The information booklet ceased in the 1980s.

But now the folder will be distributed again.

Supermarket Stabber Was Jihadi After All

Ahmad A., as he is identified in the Germany court where his trial is ongoing, stabbed a 50-year-old man to death and injured six in July 2017 while yelling “Allahu Akbar [God is greatest]!” Even though the police had him under investigation for being an Islamist, they blamed his actions at the time on mental illness.

Yet Ahmad, who pleaded guilty to the all the charges against him, told the court the attack was part of his jihad and he was trying to kill as many Christians as possible. The German news outlet Hamburger Morgenpost reported his lawyer declared, “He made this decision as a contribution to the global jihad.”

Austria: Many Muslim asylum seekers hold “medieval views”

A new research by Professor Ednan Aslan has revealed some shocking insights.

The professor, whose specialty is religious education at the University of Vienna, asked Muslim asylum seekers in the city of Graz about their religious attitudes. Many respondents, it turned out, were holding radical religious views.

Gasp! I’m speechless!
