“Liberalism and Islam have many things in common includng a belief that hypocrisy (as they perceive it) is deserving of punishment by the government.”
Excellent point. And yet they are different in a very dangerous way: liberalism is essentially no principles or tenets for which its adherents would fight beyond demanding government action while Islam is a religion that not only encourages but apparently demands its adherents to fight and die for. Liberalism turns people into whimps and weenies (or maybe just attracts them) while Islam creates madmen and martyr wanna-be’s. Head to head, toe to toe, the madmen win.
Islamofascism becomes doubly dangerous due to its elemental attraction to the various components of the Left.
On a different thread we were discussing the discovery that "religious people" apparantly perceive visual cues about 30 milliseconds faster than "atheists". Rather than that being an artifact of a "religious outlook", which the fellows who conducted the study thought it might be, I suggested that the "religious outlook" was a manifestation of a fundamental biological difference between the two groups of people ~ almost a difference in species!
No doubt that study will lead to further studies and maybe make some interesting connections. I think we face something like that with the Islamofascist and the Liberal attraction to using the government to punish "hypocrisy" as they perceive it.
Fact is 99.99999% of "hypocrisy" is a perceptual difference between the doer and the observer anyway. Those with defective response capability (that tricky little 30 millisecond difference perhaps) may simply not have the ability to pick up on the total view necessary to see the "truth".
It is no doubt highly frustrating to Moslems and Liberals to be forever locked out. Hence, the danger of their lashing out at their betters with violence or threats of tighter regulation.
This also means that sans genetic manipulation, we will continue to live with their threats or somehow isolate them from the general population.
