Silverwolf noticed that about a week back, the Islamic organization, Hizb-ut-tahrir, held a conference in Chicago where they decried the supposed Capitalism of America as being the cause of the current financial crisis, and spoke instead for the adoption of Sharia Law in the U.S.A. It seems, under this wonderful system, that interest on loans would become illegal, Sharia would take precedence over the U.S. Constitution, and Christians and other religious minorities would become “dhimmi” or protected minorities who would only have to pay a 10% tax for the privilege of living in a society under Islamic Law.
Hizb-ut-tahrir is an Islamic organization that claims to be non-violent, and seeks to convert the world through intellectual discussions. Evidently, the long history of the misery caused in the world by religious fanatics, and religious governments, is to be cleared up and forgotten with a little intellectual “chewing the fat”. However, the Danish Government didn’t see anything intellectual about it when it arrested one of this group’s leaders six years ago for passing out literature calling on Muslims to carry out the Koranic exhortation to kill Jews wherever they see them, or when it indicted the group three years ago for calling for the murder of Danish government officials. Such “intellectual persuasion” was viewed by the Danes as it should be: inciting to riot and murder, and which should be punished as if it had been successful in its nefarious aims. Whoever incites others to murder based on race or religion should be tried and punished as if he had committed first-degree murder.
Interestingly enough, when the conference began, men and women were forced to sit in separate sections, and when someone challenged this set-up, they were told that it was to prevent men and women from “acting like animals”. Apparently, these objective Islamic intellectuals didn’t trust themselves enough to not turn into raving rapists if they happened to co-mingle the sexes. It’s good to know we’ll have such well-controlled people in charge of the Islamic Republic of America, when they take over.
Of course, the fundamental premise of the conference, that Capitalism has created the current crisis crimping cash-and-carry commercial custom, is a humbug, because, on the contrary, the current crisis has been caused by big-government Socialism reaching into, and destroying, almost every facet of Capitalism that used to exist in the late 19th century in America. Socialism, based on the religious prescriptions of the three major Western religions, has been married to the falsities of Keynesian economics, to create a witches brew of FDR-LBJ Socialism that has finally poisoned the patient. America will never emerge from this depressionary inflation until it adopts the sane, sound, and true principles of Austrian economics and radical free-market Capitalism. And groups like Hizb-ut-tahrir, and its growing influence in American metropolises, are only further obstacles in American Capitalist’s and Libertarian’s attempt to retake America for the system it was before the FED, Wilson, and FDR-LBJ welfarism.
The horsescat that organized religion has piled into the world never seems to stop coming, and it’s a shame that so much human energy must be wasted in cleaning up the stink it creates. In America, thanks to Jefferson’s wisdom, and the Christian radicals who fled authoritarian England so they could worship in peace, and were even so radical as to tolerate and sometime even welcome Jews into their new lifestyle, a life-style so radical in its intellectual foundations that it had never been seen in Europe, though it was later to be stained by the contradictions of slavery and the treatment of the Indians in a land that purported to champion Individual Liberty and Rights — in America, such a piling finally came to a stop, with the effective separation of Church and State under Wisechief Jefferson’s Revolutionary Constitution. But groups like Hizb, and the Bush-Obama expansions of “faith-based initiatives” programs which should be repealed by Congress immediately, and for which both Bush and Obama should have been impeached, are the bane of true Capitalists and Libertarians both in America and the world over.
If you don’t like free-market Capitalism and the Constitution, there’s a vast Islamic world out there, where you won’t have to be paid interest on your savings, in which you can live. Enjoy it.
