British Secular Schools Going Islamic
Muslims are taking over public schools in Britain and turning them from secular to Islamic, forcing out anyone who opposes them.
But in January, Mr. Bains stepped down as the principal of the Saltley School and Specialist Science College, saying he could no longer do the job in the face of relentless criticism from the Muslim-dominated school board. It had pressed him, unsuccessfully, to replace some courses with Islamic and Arabic studies, segregate girls and boys and drop a citizenship class on tolerance and democracy in Britain.
This could be stopped and reversed if our leaders weren't such fools.
This brings to mind the increased polarization in American politics. Supposedly each party is moving away from the middle and taking more severe positions. Unfortunately, the leading figures on the Right take incredibly wimpy positions even when they oppose some of the foolish policies of the Left. Britain is the same way. Look at the British taxpayer-funded schools that are teaching messages that make the Muslims of Britain view non-Muslims as inferiors who should be ruled and dominated. What went so wrong in Western thought over the last century that makes this sort of thing be tolerated for even one second?

What went wrong is that there seems to be a self destructive vein running deep in Western Culture. If there are historical antecedents to this kind of cultural suicide I'm not aware of it. Other collapsing civilizations just got weaker, I don't think they actively tried to slit their own throats. Just like with biology, it seems there is natural selection in cultures. Maybe the West can't just cut it long term in the face of other traditions that are more aggressive and appeal to more base emotions. A human experiment that is failing.
Yes it's weird. The Romans were overrun militarily by barbaric Germans. The Germans were militarily stronger but even they recognized the superiority of Roman civilization to their own cultures. In a straightforward military contest between the West and the Islamic Middle East the latter wouldn't have a chance. Little Israel routinely thrashes much bigger Arab opponents. However the West is collapsing before the onslaught of Arabs and Moslems.
The overwhelming technological superiority of the West vis-vis the Islamic world seems of little importance as compared with the contrast between Islamic fanaticism and Western nihilism.
The only real problem is the government and its ability to print (fiat) money and so borrow at cheap rates.
With this ability come the ability to pay electors and pay themselves without the taxpayers understanding what is happening.
This is because the welfare state enlarged so much during the XX century.
And with the welfare state came the elitists ability to dominate the government and population.
The success of technology and science in raising the productivity just delayed the final crash of the economy and society.
But we are near the end, because powerful forces have raised. They are tiny but they have are able of chain reactions and network effects.
Internet allow people to network and outthink the elites (the unproductive elites), now bitcoin raise the possibility of escaping the dominion of fiat money and banks.
Without this dominion become very expensive, difficult and dangerous to rob the people from the fruits of their labor, reducing the ability to hijack resources.
Without the ability to take resources from the people and give them to the public school (it is there to create docile drones), the elite could not allow to fund public schools. And the muslims would not be able to live on the dole or with favors from the governments. Immigration, in the past, was not the problem it is now because immigrants would starve if they didn't work. They would be forced to integrate, like it or not. Tatar Muslims in Poland never gave any problem by the time of the Gold Horde demise. Why? Because they would die.
The moment the flux of money to these muslims stop, because the government is left without the ability to plunder the productive people, the muslims stop to be a problem.
If technology make oil obsolete (we would be there without the active interference of government) the resources to keep muslims indoctrinated would fade as their indoctrination. And there would not be resources to bride false academicians in teaching politically correct (AKA false) stuff.
"This could be stopped and reversed if our leaders weren't such fools."
Not fools. They are traitors. Or cowards. Or just normal, greedy politicians more interested in doing anything to boost their careers than in actually serving the public.
