Why Rights Are Primary and Democracy Is Not

Freedom is not based on the ballot box. Democracy it not an end in itself. Rights are! The question is, what are rights?


William R. Thomas explains the nature of rights.

Thursday July 4 we ran a commentary entitled Why Democracy and Equality Are Evil. Well, they aren't evil per se; but these concepts are being used in an inappropriate way. The piece explained why the regime of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt following the Arab Spring was not an outburst of democratic freedom as the Western media and the bien-pensant elites made it out to be.

LIBERALS BLAMING THE RIGHT FOR TERRORISM

With the culture war heating up to ever greater temperatures a new, insidious logic is building up in the Leftist narrative. It can't be left unaddressed, because it is simply too dangerous to be left to run its course. 

Uber liberal financial backer of all causes aiming to destroy Western civilization, George Soros has penned this absurd piece of narrative in the Guardian. It perfectly sets out the liberal course for the coming crucial year in the history of this existential struggle for the Western mind:
The jihadi terrorists’ ultimate goal is to convince Muslim youth worldwide that there is no alternative to terrorism. And terrorist attacks are the way to achieve that goal, because the fear of death will awaken and magnify the latent anti-Muslim sentiments in Europe and America, inducing the non-Muslim population to treat all Muslims as potential attackers.
