You are not alone in asking that question: How is it possible that we can be so antagonistic towards conservative traditional Christianity and yet so accepting Islam?
I think we have to understand that there has been a revolution in the US and the West in general. An ideological revolution for neoliberalism.
Neoliberalism is dedicated to scientific rationalism, that's neoliberal conception of life: science, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, that’s it. Everything else is the matter of your own personal opinion. When that began to make its way into our culture and policy, in the 1960-s in particular, it gave rights to something called "emancipatory politics". The emancipation has to be freedom or liberation.
Well I think that the election of Trump firstmeans it is possible to oppose the global agenda planned by the oligarchy using the existing rigged political system. This was I guess the main surprise for everybody especially in European countries. This is also a clear defeat for a global and increasing power: the Mainstream Media Corporation that did its maximum to make so that Hillary Clinton win this battle. After the Brexit, Trump … It’s now getting more and more obvious for everybody that they lie and will lie and lie to protect their own interest, far from the interest of the people.
Of the issues that divide libertarians and traditionalists, free trade may be the most important. It is central to nearly all our debates. Do we tend to a contractual or an organic view of human relationships? Do we embrace or do we fear a technological and economic progress that is carrying us into a world we cannot predict? Do we regard mankind as a single race, capable, despite its present separations, of a single future history? Or do we regard these present separations as inevitable, and perhaps worth maintaining? Where do we stand in the debate over England that took place between about 1830 and 1850? In all these and more, how we view free trade will usually correlate with, and may determine, the side that we take.
From the outsider’s perspective, the United States appears to have entered the peak stages of a psychotic meltdown over its newly elected president Donald J. Trump.
Although Candidate Trump’s adamant insistence of “building the wall” was discussed numerously, right from the outset of announcing his presidential candidacy, the executive order that the now President Trump has just signed, albeit not entirely legally applicable from the perspective of some, has caused more controversy in that now-way-too-familiar unique Trump confrontational stance.
First of all, I do not consider myself to be a member of any movement or organization but I am sympathetic to various movements and organizations and even individuals that challenge the dominant liberal hegemony around the world. Therefore, this may pertain to certain independent journalists that self-describe as being left-wing that demystify Washington's damage to somewhere like The Middle East, for instance Syria.
I think that Hofer’s loss is the result of the total mobilization of the Austrian establishment, the so-called "swamp".
