I wrote this comment in a National newspaper last year, that in fact Hitler was not the problem that actuated WW2, let me elaborate before the Anti Nazi League come round a kick the crap out of my pitbull terrier and burn my union flag,Hitler was created by THE PROBLEM. The creatures like Hitler, Milosevic,Pol Pot, Starlin live in the sewer of the human psyche ready to appear the moment the real problem does. So what is the real problem: poverty; unemployment; unequal distribution of wealth; corrupt political systems; repression of truth and free speech along with fear and mistrust for everything and everybody who are not like us, add a sprinkling of religious fanaticism and finish it off with a liberal dose of greed and selfishness and you have the perfect ingredients of the problem.
The Formula is never random, the plague is random, droughts are random, earthquakes are random. The problem on the other hand is always constant and the outcome always inevitable WAR.
The far right are sweeping across Europe, Japan, America, the Soviet Russia. even Mongolia has its own Neo-Nazi party.
The attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo was a attack on free speech and of free thinking, perpetrated by a small group of people imprisoned and blinded by their own hate. These groups are no more representative of the Muslim faith then the KKK are representative of Christianity. We may not always agree with what the press has to say but we respect the right say it, to ask the questions to debate, this includes the likes of Edward Snowden and Julian Assage who’s actions have questioned the very meaning of these freedoms.
The attacks around the world weaken the resolve for free speech not in the way these individuals think it will, but in pointing moderately thinking people to seek solutions in radical political ideologies from both the far left and right leaving us in danger of repressing the very freedoms we seek to protect.
