Word of Blog?

Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

Thoughts for Today
Topic: Islamic Jihad
"Pacifism is objectively pro-fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side, you automatically help out that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one. In practice, 'he that is not with me is against me.'""George Orwell



At the end of Fahrenheit 9/11 Michael Moore has a quote by Orwell. One wonders if he ever read much by the man or actually understood Orwell's Thoughts and Philosophy.

More Orwell:

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf"


"War is evil, but it is often the lesser evil"

"There are some ideas so wrong that only a very intelligent person could believe in them."

"The quickest way to end a war is to lose it."

"So much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don't even know that fire is hot."

"There is hardly such a thing as a war in which it makes no difference who wins. Nearly always one side stands more or less for progress, the other side more or less for reaction."

"For the ordinary man is passive. Within a narrow circle (home life, and perhaps the trade unions or local politics) he feels himself master of his fate, but against major events he is as helpless as against the elements. So far from endeavoring to influence the future, he simply lies down and lets things happen to him."

"The high sentiments always win in the end, the leaders who offer blood, toil, tears, and sweat always get more out of their followers than those who offer safety and a good time. When it comes to the pinch, human beings are heroic."


Michael Moore has stated the Terrorists in Iraq are Modern Day Minutemen, I think this quote by Orwell is quite fitting


"One has to belong to the intelligentsia to believe things like that; no ordinary man could be such a fool."


Orwell is considered by some to be one of the Great Western Thinkers of the 20th Century, celebrated and acclaimed as such.

Let us revisit what he said and I quoted at the start of this Post?

"Pacifism is objectively pro-fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side, you automatically help out that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one. In practice, 'he that is not with me is against me.'""
George Orwell


Those were the words of one of the Great Thinkers of the West.

For Extra Credit what 21st Century Thinker uttered These Words


Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and isolated strikes. Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign, unlike any other we have ever seen. It may include dramatic strikes, visible on TV, and covert operations, secret even in success. We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.
