marching on, and on, and…

. from the quill of Antisthenes

The following item will appear in our History section on the proper date, but since the peaceful Muslims could not wait for the sixty-fifth anniversary and went on a killing spree in Bombay a day before yesterday, I thought I could quote it now:-

29th July, 1946 : The All-India Moslem League, meeting in Bombay, today called on all Moslems in India to be ready for every sacrifice, and to prepare for the “coming struggle”. The League’s Council voted unanimously to revert to the demand for a fully sovereign Moslem State of Pakistan and to withdraw acceptance of Britain’s long-term plans for India’s constitution. The League’s leader, Mr Jinnah, said: ”Bloodshed and civil war must be avoided if possible. But now there is no more room left. Now let us march on …

To those educated in the politically correct Australian schools, I would like to say that the Muslims did get their separate state, Pakistan, in August, 1947, after 200,000 to 1,000,000 human beings were killed. Obviously, it was not enough and did not help in making a peaceful religion more peaceful. Our so called leaders, unless totally ignorant, know that the cowardice is counter-productive, but, oh, so attractive in the short term electoral cycle.

 

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
