Coming soon to a neighborhood near you! As part of their May Day celebration of communism, demonstrators in Portland decided to riot, burning buildings, throwing rocks, and attacking police.

It is amazing to me the increasing similarity between the techniques and goals of radical Islam and modern leftists. Both hate. Both use violence. Both oppose any dissent. You would think they were allies, though we all know that they would also kill each other if given the chance.

    In Sweden, and surely throughout Europe and the world, many “demonstrators” carry North Korea’s flag when they march along with the governing party, the most popular in the country. Shouts like: “Murder all Americans! Death to USA! Death to Israel” are echoing the capital city all day long. Your enemy is EVERYWHERE outside your borders. Everyone hates Americans. At least the overwhelming majority in all so called free democratic nations. Slavery under communism (which has become islamism) is the by far prefered political alternative in public opinion.

    Both communism and Caliphate Revivalism are extremes of 2 separate waves of the same phenomenon, reaction against industrial society’s necessary freedoms of action to build and maintain the worldwide networks that industrial society consists of. The communists hate market freedoms of action, while the Caliphate Revivalists hate intellectual freedoms of action, but both are willing to suppress *all* industrial freedoms to suppress their particular bete noir.
