The deep Crisis of the West


Why does it vary by nation?

31.07.2010. It is a scientific fact that average IQ-levels vary between countries. The big question is why. A new study from researchers at the University of New Mexico suggests that intelligence may be linked to infectious-disease rates, according to Newsweek.


And the new Black Panther Party

11.07.2010. From Amnation.com: Here is a brief clip from the perpetually over-exposed Megan Kelly of Fox News about the Justice Department's unexplained decision to drop its case against the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation. It is followed by a clip of the Panther's Philadelphia leader, King Shabbaz something or other, expressing his considered view of the White Problem, namely that whites should all be dead. Shabbaz's position is but a logical extension of that of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, at whose feet the current U.S. president devoutly sat for 20 years, and who simply and directly equated white people with the principle of evil. The DOJ's conduct of the New Black Panther case was one of the factors that led Rep. Steven King and former Rep. Virgil Goode to declare recently that Obama and his Attorney General favor blacks over whites. But let's be more precise: in this instance Obama and Holder favor black advocates of the murder of whites over whites.

Make sure you watch that brief YouTube-clip.


Violent inner-city crime, the figures, and a question of race

11.07.2010. The official figures, which examine the ethnicity of those accused of violent offences in London, suggest the majority of men held responsible by police for gun crimes, robberies and street crimes are black. Black men are also disproportionately the victims of violent crime in the capital. The statistics, released by the Metropolitan Police, permit an informed debate on a sensitive subject for the first time.

One prominent black politician said that the black community needed to face up to major challenges. Shaun Bailey, a Tory election candidate in London and a charity worker, said: “The black community has to look at itself and say that, at the end of the day, these figures suggest we are heavily – not casually – involved in violent crime. We are also involved in crime against ourselves – and we regularly attack each other.” The data provide a breakdown of the ethnicity of the 18,091 men and boys who police took action against for a range of violent and sexual offences in London in 2009-10.

HonestThinking is dedicated and committed to the art of thinking honestly. Yet honest thinking is not the same as true thinking, for it is possible to think honestly, but be mistaken. For the same reason, honest thinking is not identical with objective thinking either. Honest thinking is striving to get things right. This involves being truthful about whatever one publishes, but just as importantly, it involves an uncompromising dedication never to suppress relevant data, even when data collides with dearly held prejudices. Such an approach may sometimes cause hurtful revisions in one’s belief system. That’s what HonestThinking is all about! Read the entire manifesto.

The current European immigration and integration policy is profoundly disrespectful of both Muslims and Islam, because it is built on the tacit assumption that the Muslims will become like us. One claims to have respect for Islam and for Muslims, but one also expects Muslims to give up their orthodox faith when they come here. At the same time one is assuming that Islam will be reformed and modernized as soon as the Muslims become integrated and understand and appreciate how superior our Western culture is compared to their own. This is cultural shauvinism and arrogance indeed! The unspoken premise for this scenario is that Western socities are superior to Islam. Read more.




Human rights and democracy are under pressure. One threat comes from the Western world, in the form of lack of or dishonest thinking. There exists a peculiar Western "tolerance" which is so "tolerant" that it even tolerates totalitarian or anti-democratic ideologies. A tacit assumption underlying such an attitude is that all cultures, world views, and religions are really equally good. As a consequence of this assumption one is cut off from the possibility of critically examining the above mentioned ideologies. Read more.
