Development hinges on just a few things.
Controlling fertility, couples not having more children than they can afford to raise to be successful.
Educating children, boys and girls, to at least the age of 16.
Rule of law. People are secure in their property, and people are secure in their persons. Corruption is the enemy here. It destroys rule of law.
Free markets. Price of goods has to be set by supply and demand, by quantity and quality. Again, corruption is the enemy of this.
Mexico has none of these things. And so a country so rich, and so beautiful, languishes. Because it has a backward, decayed culture.
And, a large part of the fault for that has to be laid at the teacher's door. So, fire them. comment by usgoosht on Mexican Dissident Teachers Strike as School Year Starts Aug 22, 2016 8:10 PM [GMT]
They need to give the cult an ultimatum: remove the satanic verses, the verses that preach hatred and intolerance and violence from the Koran, and other cult of Islam scriptures, or be banned.
And they also need to force the cult to remove the aspects of their creed that make it a cult. Men and women have to have the individual right of freedom of religion, and women and men have to be treated equally.
If the 'moderate' Muslims really are moderate, they will have no problem with doing this. Because, if they really are 'moderate', those are the very parts of their own religion they have rejected. Why would they want them to remain within it? comment by usgoosht on Letter From Europe: The Multifaceted ‘Burkini’ Debate Aug 22, 2016 7:59 PM [GMT]

Freedom of religion doesn't mean preaching hatred and intolerance in the name of religion. comment by usgoosht on France began isolating Islamic extremists in jails after Paris attacks Aug 22, 2016 7:46 PM [GMT]
Sura 9:5 (the sword verse, paraphrased as 'kill, enslave, or forcibly convert the unbeliever', 9:29 (the fighting verse, 'fight the unbeliever wherever you find him'), etc.
The cult of Islam is a curse upon Muslims, and a crime against humanity. The world would be a better place without it.
I call it a crime, because it has probably killed as many people as all the pandemics humanity has endured, and blighted more lives, as well. And, all in the name of a false prophet, and his false creed. comment by usgoosht on In Russia, how one mainly Muslim region beat back radicalism Aug 22, 2016 7:35 PM [GMT]
Banning Burkinis or Burkhas is just window dressing; France needs to ban the cult of Islam. The hatred and intolerance it teaches as being the word of Allah are incompatible with a democratic society. comment by usgoosht on Editorial: France’s Burkini Bigotry Aug 19, 2016 01:22 AM [GMT]
