Here on ATS, I'm sure that many of you know this malaise I speak of. You can't quite put your finger on it, but you know it's there, you can feel it.
A brooding sense of unwell, uncertainty, and fear of what's to come. But you, my dear readers, are the lucky ones. Your still have enough of your wits
to understand that something is deeply wrong here. Others are not so fortunate.
What are the symptoms of this malady, on a mass scale? Selfishness. Rampant materialist appetites. Pessimism. Hedonism. Cloying notions of tolerance
and nicety, that while good in theory, are merely avenues to self-righteous "feel good" morality. The ineffectual, pretentious nature of modern social
equity movements is evident in that they have accomplished almost nothing, particularly when compared to the (far more admirable) Civil Rights
movements of the past century. Righteous indignation only means something when it's genuine.
The twisted mockery that is Western politics, shamelessly passing itself off as democracy. Hyper-inflated bureaucratic entities that devour capital
and resources without any tangible benefit to the public. Venal, indecisive leadership firmly in the grip of corporate interests, good only for public
flattery and pathetic displays of obeisance. A thoroughly dilapidated public school system that soaks up funding with scarcely any improvement.
I could go on. I need not list every example of our utter failure as a society. You see it everyday. You see it in the vacuous, conceited
personalities of our youth. You see it in the media, coldly pandering to the basest human preoccupations with violence and sex, satisfying our
voyeuristic urges. Glutting ourselves on MTV reality shows, Call of Duty, and Doritos. Minds warped by the need for constant stimulation.
To be frank, we are lost. We have descended utterly into a nightmare of corporeal gluttony, unbridled avarice of the worst order. If I may be so bold
as to coin a new term for this degradation: inverted transcendence. Downward progression. Oxymoronic terms, yes, and perfectly apt to describe the
Total submission to mundane urges is precisely the manner of our enslavement. Brilliant, isn't it? TBTB didn't have to put you in chains. They didn't
You simply enslaved yourself.
You, the atheist with a masturbation addiction. You, the Evangelical who gets a dopamine rush from proselytizing. You, the languid pothead who spends
his time raving about police on the Internet. You, the sexually liberated female who bases her self-worth on sexual exploits and male attention. You,
the secular Western humanist, unaware that you simply traded one ideology for another.
All of you, oblivious to your own myopic hypocrisy.
Enter ISLAM. Islam, the hated foe of the West, the adversary who stands opposed to every "freedom" that we cherish.
Islam, utterly uncompromising, unbending, unyielding. A stalwart, powerful religion that refuses to bend to global currents. Defiant. The religion
that spits in the face of globalist hegemony. The religion that inspires people to live and die by it's tenets, regardless of inconvenience, danger,
But the most important aspect of Islam, the quality that could liberate us all, is it's disdain for selfish desire. Islam is a brotherhood, a
community, and it prizes Discipline and Self-Control above all other qualities. Discipline is submission to Allah, it is an acknowledgement and an
attestation of faith.
Muslims only serve one master, and I would sooner submit to him than live as a stupefied, lobotomized slave to my own desires.
