Someone asked a question: "Why are child sex abuse and exploitation laws being ignored?"
Good question. We are witnessing Western civilization twisting itself into ever tighter knots because of a profound inner conflict. Two principles that almost all of us strongly believe in are clashing with intensity: We believe everyone should be able to live as they wish, believe what they want to believe, and practice their own religion and customs. On the other hand, we believe nobody should ever be allowed to abuse children.
And you can see what this kind of inner conflict does: It paralyzes action.
A similar conflict is happening with many different issues wherever Islam is coming into contact with the free world. Followers of Islamic doctrine have been historically very good at putting the free world into double binds, and this is another good example.
The inner conflict is preventing decisions from being made. When decisions stop, nothing happens to resolve the problem.
But notice something: Those who are educated about Islam do not have this conflict and are not paralyzed. If you would like to see less paralysis and more decisive action, the solution is obvious: We need more of us to see Islam for what it is. We need to get serious about skillfully getting this information into the minds of our fellow non-Muslims.
Politicians are failing to accomplish this. The media is too. It's up to us.
