Why the Peaceful Majority Is Irrelevant, by Paul Marek

Paul Marek vividly describes the current brutality of radical Islam and its peaceful victims. He also reminds us how the peaceful ones in Germany became dominated by the Nazis. Additionally, he recites similar slaughters in Communist Russia and China as many other examples of genocide. Peace and freedom are in jeopardy. Listen to these wise words of the present and past. You can find Marek’s original blog below, and on Marek’swebsite. Further, its slightly amended version is printed with permission in my book, “How to Achieve a Heaven on Earth.” For more information, visit my website or find the book online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

 

Why the Peaceful Majority is Irrelevant

 

I used to know a man whose family were German aristocracy prior to World War Two. They owned a number of large industries and estates. I asked him how many German people were true Nazis, and the answer he gave has stuck with me and guided my attitude toward fanaticism ever since.“Very few people were true Nazis” he said, “but, many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.”We are told again and again by “experts” and “talking heads” that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unquantified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam. The fact is, that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars world wide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. The hard quantifiable fact is, that the “peaceful majority” is the “silent majority” and it is cowed and extraneous.

Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people. The Average Japanese individual prior to World War 2 was not a war mongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of Killing that included the systematic killing of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And, who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were “peace loving”.

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points. Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by the fanatics. Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awake one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun. Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Bosnians, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others, have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts; the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

Mental Illness and Kindness

The stigma of mental illness must be eliminated as more and more of humankind knows more and more how to treat them – just like breast cancer, diabetes, and on and on.

One by one, we have our strengths and weaknesses.  Trying to accept others as they are, perhaps helping them with some form of kindness – is an important part of the formula toward Heaven on Earth. Kindness is just the opposite of hate and allowing and promoting it within ourselves and others is what makes the human condition capable of a joyous state – through ups and downs. So, please join me is spreading kindness as we march toward Heaven on Earth!

The Road to Prosperity

It’s sobering how almost all people, worldwide, don’t have any understanding at all about currency defacements globally, in terms of some nations which a currency failure will severely affect so many others. For example, Japan, which is the third largest economy, is close to the potential of a currency failure.  Their central bank is “buying” their national debt. Greece is in jeopardy as they have been for some time.  But France is the one that might bring the Euro to a crisis.

Other nations, including Italy, Russia and Argentina, are weak and there are others, not to mention banks that will be affected by these overblown governments with deficits that hungrily devour more and more national debt. Debt and unsound entitlements are pressing down on America and elsewhere, diminishing growth and hurting everyone at all income levels.  Low taxes and regulations without inefficient and bloated governments can very surely allow prosperity to blossom.  It’s not a matter of envy, class warfare dividing the American people, or the population globally. Growth is the engine of prosperity.
