Since the public education system has generally stopped teaching Civics, it is easy to mislead the uneducated as to why free speech is important and even what it is. But, why this massive apparently coordinated effort against free speech? In a free country, who could possibly win by loss of free speech?
There is far more at play than the inattentive and history-ignorant can imagine. Start here:
Atheist, Jewish, Catholic, Christian, and Muslim belief systems affect world politics. Believers are all looking for fulfilment of their eschatological (end-times) prophecies. Belief in the return of the Jewish race to Jerusalem and the rebuilding of the temple as signs of The End affects billions of believers and those believers affect everyone on the planet.
Muslims have divided into Sunni, Wahabi, Shiite, and more sects. The Koran’s eschatology is greatly colored in believer’s eyes by the Hadiths a particular sect considers authoritative. For ISIS the final battles at Constantinople, Dabiq, and conquering Vatican City are the signs Allah is come to clean things up.
ISIS believes that when the nations of the world lead by the Pope (?) attack them in Dabiq is when Allah will step in and defeat them leaving ISIS as the final caliphate. So, they poke western nations to incite the final battle at Dabiq.
You may not think atheists have an eschatological belief. Often an atheist’s religion is called Science. For some it is philosophy. Both speculate on the end of Earth and the nature of death. But, they treat those belief systems the same way others treat religious beliefs. For many it is a blind faith type thing. For some it is the postmodern relativism where each person has their own truth, which can’t stand up to any logical debate.
Atheists look at ‘religions’ as not dealing with or even acknowledging fact, scientific or other. But, consider a recent article in the Manhattan Contrarian: The “Science” Just Doesn’t Stand Up. The article is about the out-of-date 1950’s idea that fat ups cholesterol and that causes heart attacks… The belief has generated a multi-billion-dollar industry selling statins and another selling low to no fat foods. It is a belief held by nearly the entire planet regardless of religion or lack of.
For those into off-the-pier-conspiracies, the brain requires fat to fuel it. OK, fat is an over simplification of the large organic molecules associated with cholesterol. So, we have two huge industries catering to the dumbing down and confusing of people… (FDA stated side effects of statins thus aka: low blood fat.)
With almost 70 years of advancing scientific research now telling us 87% of all those having cardiac issues have low cholesterol and only 0.7% of those taking statins getting any measurable benefit people still believe fat and high cholesterol are a problem. Blind faith… something that is supposedly the providence of the religious. My point is all people do the blind faith thing for which the religious are condemned.
My point is the atheist is no more examining their beliefs than the religious challenge their pastors/priests. So, the behavior many consider an attribute of the religious is also typical of the atheist. They treat science as people do a religion.
The UN via Agenda 21 plan works for what they consider a “sustainable” world, which is ideally about 3 to 4 billion people. With 7+ billion on the planet we have 3 to 4 billion too many. What will they do with the excess? There is the politically acceptable answer, which they put in their public plans. But, common sense says the unspoken belief has huge implications. How much do they actually care about those excess people? Their actions speak much loader than their actions. Do we blindly accept? Then isn’t that UN plan pretty much a religion?
