I find it amazing that some of our favorite liberals see no problem with theocracy as long as it is Islam. The weakness of any religious based system of law is that non believers would automatically have lower status. Christianity comes the closest to overc[ming this natural flaw with its life afirming mention of brotherhood and the notion that all are subject to God's law.
The only answer to the problems of our world lay in Civil law. There should be basic minimum standards of decency all nations should have to adhere to. The lack of Civil law is one of the reasons religious minorities fare so poorly under Islam. If progress is going to be made everyones rights and lives must be respected.
Civil law would have another benefit stability. One of the keys to making this planet safer is investing and building the economies of Muslim countries. When is the last time you picked something up and it said made in Jordan or Syria.
Terrorism , instability , economic ruin and religious fanaticism become a pepetuating circle that goes downhill. The question becomes how and where do we break
The failure of utopian leftists is that they just are not interested in progress.
They are parasitesthat feed off your misery and thus they practice moral relitivism and enable terrorist. Remember their strugle is to overthrow Capitalism and all of us are expendible in their demented warped power play.
We must come up with a way to link aid in the third world to Civil Law.Nations that do not have civil law should get zero aid. Aid should be tied to civil law and liberals should demand accountability of the reciepients.
Then the next battle becomes the war on corruption. Corruption as a way of life is a plauge in the third world. The problem with alot of liberals is that they often throw money at a problem with no vision or responsibility attached. Throwing money at a problem with no vision is a band aid. The problem at hand is beyond a band aid.
