Light the ground beneath them aflame and scorch them with terror. Kill them on the streets of Brunswick, Broadmeadows, Bankstown, and Bondi. Kill them at the MCG, the SCG, the Opera House, and even in their backyards,” the article reads.
“Stab them, shoot them, poison them, and run them down with your vehicles. Kill them wherever you find them until the hollowness of their arrogance is filled with terror and they find themselves on their knees with their backs broken under the weight of regret for having waged a war against the believers, and by Allah’s will, and then through your sacrifices, this Ummah will be victorious.
Could the message be any clearer? There are people in the world who wish us harm. There are people in the world who wish to conquer us. Therefore, it is not a great idea to take up, as your moral cause in life, mass Islamic immigration into the West. That only provides a larger population for the security services to monitor and a greater likelihood of lone wolf attackers emerging.
The liberal elite in the West has decided to champion mass Islamic immigration. They seem to believe that it can be used to break up the established loyalties and identities that exist in the West, to clear a path for a more purely individualistic society organised "rationally" around the market and the state bureaucracy.
As part of this mindset, the liberal elite believes that we should never discriminate on the basis of inherited identities and loyalties and that embracing those who are most "other" to us is a grand moral gesture.
The liberal elite is wrong. It makes sense to prefer a relatively homogeneous society in which people share a close sense of belonging and identity. This creates a high level of social trust, a high level of commitment to the institutions of society, a willingness to sacrifice for the common good, an appreciation of the history and culture to which the individual is so closely connected, a willingness to look to the future good of society, a sense of being anchored (of having roots) within a particular tradition, and a higher sense of one's own tradition as a transcendent good that connects us to one source of meaning in life.
If we continue down the liberal path, not only will we be more greatly exposed to those who wish us harm, but we will eventually come to live more selfishly and shallowly - we will seek as lone individuals to maximise our comfort and physical pleasure within a market and bureaucratic system.
Liberalism dominates right now, so the aim is to contribute to a counterculture. There are certainly Westerners who have a sense of the hollowness of modernity, and it is this group that we need to bring together to more effectively challenge the current liberal orthodoxy.
