The values of personal sovereignty and human dignity which the West has preached and propagandized for long have been crushed by the West itself. This stupidity and madness are not only targeting only Muslims but everyone. Muslims are just scapegoat and first easy target.
Coercive force:- Laws: We know what they are, and what they are worth! They are spider webs for the rich and mighty, steel chains for the poor and weak, fishing nets in the hands of the government.” – Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (1809-1865) French Anarchist
The fact that some Muslim women wear burka, some wear head scarf, and some don’t, that means it’s not a “Muslim-must” and there is choice. Yes, it’s true that certain Muslim females are forced to dress the way they do either by their customs, traditions, or religious rules. So are many other non-Muslims- both males and female i.e Catholic nuns, Orthodox Jews, Hindus , Buddhists etc…
Personally I don’t like women, the beauty part of human race, wearing anything at all! I don’t like the way the Catholic nuns dress and their head scarf , the Buddhist nuns’ dresses and their shaved head. I don’t like any human being in clumsy bulky traditional dresses at all, particularly those of kings, queens, Pope etc.. They all look so funny, backward, submissive, and stupid to me. But for fuck sake, IT”S MY PROBLEM, not theirs! However, If I choose to be unconsidered, I do have right to make comments or express my dislike, but I have absolutely no right to physically interfere or stop them. It is absolutely barbaric of me to do so.
Yes, it’s also true that some people dress the way they do because they don’t know “better”, if you insist in this way of your “better”. So, If you, in a sense of altruism, want them to do “better” to dress “better” as yours, this would call for civilized discussion and persuasion, not brazen coercion with fake excuses i.e “community interest”, “society interest” , which are called “laws” of the fucking few psychopaths a.k.a politicians, or the so-called opinion of the majority. Is it called a pretext?
For fuck sake, if the Vietnamese and Koreans were majority in your city they would vote to force you to eat dog meat, their special delicacy. What say you? Or I would put you, the so-called civilized westerners in the worst situation you have ever dreamt of, that is you live in a “majority rule” of “fanatic, extremist” Muslims. Yes, Sharia laws! Would you still respect majority rule with all of your heart and integrity? Can I bet on this?
In this case I would bet my life that you would revolt ( I will absolutely join you in this) as you have done with your Kings and your Churches so that you are in your position right now. And as the minority of gay community, in the same values and principles, has rightly revolted and is winning against the majority- I have always respected and lent my full support for the minority gay, lesbian community in this regard. And I am now doing the same for the Muslims with this very principle!
Why don’t you make “laws” ban all of them? Why are only Muslim women targeted?
It will be best to end my rants with your revered Thomas Jefferson regarding “majority” in “democracy”:
All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression. ..
One man (woman) with courage is a majority. Thomas Jefferson
What the West is doing to the Muslims now is an absolute violation of human rights and dignity, even “its” own principle, if it truly still has one!
Don’t be so stupid to think that YOU are destroying the Muslims. YOU are destroying YOURSELVES for fuck sake!
