Time To Expose

EVERYONE should listen to what this man has to say (and listen to him saying it), including:

• The American government, which has a habit of placating the worst elements of that society, rather than supporting individuals/reformers like the one shown and heard here (see below).

• So-called human rights activists/liberals, who have a habit of embracing “causes” out of ignorance and misinformation.

• Academia, where people (may) acquire knowledge, but not wisdom. As a wise proverb says: “Some of the greatest fools ever known were learned men.”

• Young folk, who adopt mantras and opinions if for no other reason than they are the fashion. There’s a wise proverb for this one too, i.e., “A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows public opinion.”

• People who are too busy living their lives to learn or think about anything bigger.

• Those who stand for nothing and, in Alexander Hamilton’s words, “fall for anything.”

• Political partisans, who blindly follow political parties/candidates. Ralph Waldo Emerson once described a party as “an elegant incognito devised to save a man from the vexation of thinking.” He was right.

So please take the time to read/listen and think, and remember Thomas Edison’s famous words:

“Five percent of the people think;
ten percent of the people think they think;
and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.”

It may be that certain parts of the world have been waiting for an individual, such as Mosab Yousef, to expose the obvious about the dangers of Islamic extremism and the lethal inner-workings of groups like Hamas. This should be true in the West especially where known terrorists and their sympathizers are given special visas and invited to the U.S. and the world-wide symbolic home of freedom, the White House. It is the hope that Yousef’s message will not fall on deaf ears and his personal story will become mainstream. Does anyone know if he, like Mohammed Morsi, has had the door to the White House opened for him?
