Extremes Of Cultural Destruction: “Progressive” Liberalism vs. Islam


Extremes Of Cultural Destruction: “Progressive” Liberalism vs. Islam

The following is an elaboration of my answer to one of my readers who noted the parallel between “progressive” liberals loving the beauty of Colorado and then moving there to remake it into their own brand of social and political pathology… and agents of Islam doing the same thing around the world.

I had not thought about the similarities of Liberals remaking the cultures they infiltrate and Islamic Stealth Jihad that is incrementally transforming the World to Islam and Sharia Law. It is not so hard to grasp the implications of any military take-over, but the incremental long-term effects of stealth liberalism and Islamic Jihad are harder to perceive and defend against.

There is nothing new about a particular culture admiring the physical habitat of another and then invading it to gain social and political control within that new domain. They may also gain hegemony in the new culture by generating disproportionately higher birth-rates than the original population, inbreeding, and aggressive recruitment.

In these ways the new culture may transform the older culture and eventually impose their own alien values (political system, laws, more’s and folkways) upon the indigenous culture. The new culture transforms the old one into their own, or perhaps some new hybrid of the of the two cultures.

This transformational process has been in play since the beginning of living time. It has occurred at all levels of biological existence, in all ecosystems. For our purposes, I will call this manifestation of Natural Selection, Cultural Evolution.

Though it is a natural phenomenon, this no reason not to defend against such alien transformations…particularly when it will lead to either behavioral chaos (Colorado) or totalitarianism (Islamic Sharia Law).

Although “Progressive”-Liberal and Islamic Sharia political/social designs are at polar ends of the behavioral-outcomes continuum. They are equally destructive (though in different ways) to the quality of the cultural organism they pathologically infect.

Take your pick: “progressive”-liberal social and political chaos and decline. Or, totalitarian social and political rigamortise and decline.

The healthy culture, committed to living long and well, should defend to-the-death against either of these cultural design extremes.

P.S., Thanks to Tom Jacobs for commenting on one of my blogs and stimulating my thinking about these cultural evolutionary dynamics.
