    Jewish and Muslim leaders vow to fight growing racism in Europe

    Members of the Coordinating Committee of European Muslim and Jewish Leaders from Belgium, U.K., France, Germany, Italy, U.S. and more announce plans for a series of public events on Europe Day.

    Prominent Muslim and Jewish leaders expressed Monday deep concern regarding the rise of far-right xenophobic and racist parties in Europe and pledged to work together to put an end to the extremist phenomenon threatening “ethnic and religious minorities.”

    Members of the Coordinating Committee of European Muslim and Jewish Leaders from Belgium, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the United States, announced plans for a series of public events on Europe Day, which takes place in May.

    “Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, xenophobia and racism must never be allowed to become respectable,” the leaders said in a joint statement.

    “We will not allow ourselves to be separated, but will stand together to fight bigotry against Muslims, Jews and other minorities. An attack on any of us is an attack on all of us,’ the statement added.

    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district. None of the units was organized in regular companies, battalions or squadrons. The Boer commandos were individualists who were difficult to control, resented formal discipline or orders, and earned a British jibe that"every Boer was his own general".

    You're assuming that democracy works and that we actually have democracy. This is however not the case. It's a system full of manipulation, trickery and deceit, in addition the "ruling elite" defines per law from the start what is "acceptable" on the political stage. From the media-manipulation on "public opinion" not even to start, which filters heavily, etc pp.

    But let's assume for a moment that democracy works. Look closely, you have a party system, that is Lobby groups representing only a faction of possible opinions and options, ie that which serves their Lobby audience the best, while having no interest in the non-Lobby audience/populace or worse, sees them as "obstacle" to their goals or even enemies. In a really free system, you'd end up with 20, 30, 50 or more such parties/Lobby interest groups. Per rule of democracy, there need to be coalitions then to represent the numbers required, while the rest of the parties form the opposition or oppositions. Depending of their shares, or in a really free system there would also be no coerced party-vote but individual PMs could vote according to their consciousness and then it would be really complicated, it would be quite impossible to get things done. After months and months of discussing a thing, there would be a "consensus" maybe, which is the lowest common denominator by necessity of the system.

    Democracy is a scam, real democracy would be a catastrophy outright, and what we currently have is a "democratically legitimised dictatorship" that excludes "deviant" opinions long before they even get to the ballot box.

This leads ultimately to stagnation, then to discontent and then to rebellion.
    This imho depends much on how it is organised. Historically, we see the greatest monuments and developments under absolutistic dictators. Be it Rome, China, Ghengis Khan's Mongolia you name it. Which empire or nation ever survived democracy? None. Even the Greek democracy, which was limited to tax paying citizens of Athens (about 20% of the population, the rest was either slaves or on other reasons excluded from the democratic system) sees a rapid decline and soon ceases to exist at all.

    If we acknowledge that a nation needs a leadership, and that in turn this leadership defines directions, on the base that this leadership grows on the ground of the nation/population, the nations's values, culture etc, and is part of it, then we can likewise chose to have a "dictator" (a single leader with a staff of people around him). The leader is a much more a symbolic figure, a point of identification, while the professionals around him actually do the work of organising etc. It's no coincidence that our pagan ancestors viewed their leaders as divine figures, and imho the qualities that this relation between the divine leader and the (divine) folk creates is really important, it is what makes, gives and renews identity in a past-present-future all encompassing sense. The Chinese empire survived 3000 years with a divine emperor.

    Most people dont even use their "right" to vote in our democracies, one reason is that it doesnt change anything anyway, but another factor is that most people simply arent interested in politics. They have their place in society and are fine with being a wheel in the gear. A democracy requires each and every single one to be politically educated and constantly informed on a scale that is not possible to reach.

    Imho democracy is an illusion, a sentiment, a nice thought that simply doesnt work and cannot work in reality. And in fact isnt even a positive system. Nietzsche called it a system of the Tschandala revenge on everything strong, gifted and special, of those who have the ability, preconditions and will to lead. It is the system where the lowest common denominator becomes the maximum of possibilities/quality, which means it is a sure way downwards.

    I'd take a Wilhelm, Bismarck or Hitler any day over what we have today, with its lies of pseudo-freedoms for which most people anyway have no use and its absolute lack of positive ideals and a will for a future envisioned over the barriers of generations. A framework within which people can identify, move and find their place, and where nonsense like impossible "equality" and "equal rights" dont exist. A defining framework imho gives much more real freedom and happiness than the multitude of current theoretical possibilities which though remain in truth unreachable for most people. It's a poisonous carrot that takes ever more away from everyone and makes many many people really unhappy to the point that they go and kill their families and commit suicide because they are entirely paralysed in a sea of unreachable dreams of the stars in the sky without having a ground under their feet anymore to walk on.

    Democracy has a very short duration where it produces (questionable) "positives" for all while it levels by necessity everything down.
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit
