    The first half of the 21st century might be known to future historians as the age when reality crushed a whole lot of human fantasies. In the long run that might be seen as a good thing but only at the cost of great suffering.

      We should be so lucky! Some fantasies seem to be hard-wired in the human brain.

      If you actually explained with specificity what you’re forecasting in vague generalities, it would make us all sick.

    To understand the impact of Islam, think of thousands of individual starlings forming a great flowing murmuration across the sky.

    Each of those starlings is an iman or iman wannabe. Without an overall plan they form a complex, cohesive, and ever changing unity. They don’t know what they are doing, and they don’t care. It is just the comfort and joy of the experience that they seek.

    Personally I think fighting for an Islamist group should be defined legally as evidence of per se treason and punishable by loss of citizenship and immediate deportation. The civil rights pimps would go nuts but it is high time we started taking the young id*io^ts seriously and not as counseling problems. Our attitude toward them is simply mystifying! It bears a discernible similarity to that dimwitted DeBlasio’s determined efforts to render NYC residents completely defenseless against the Forces of Chaos that privious administrations had wrestled back into their cages for 25 years.

      I think a lot of Progressives can’t handle harsh realities like Islamism, so they engage in clinical level denial. Including the defense mechanism of projecting the threat they can’t handle upon people they don;t like. I.e., conservatives, et al. Hence we have the DHS vigorously investigating our veterans, the tea party, etc.
