Freedom’s Lights Flicker
by Michael Walsh
SUMMARY justice; defence and appeal prohibited. Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) now denies access to Mike Walsh books. This is a stark reminder of the dark labyrinths we are all entering. The flickering lights in the world of ethnic-Europeans are being snuffed out one by one; it is an accelerating process.
Violence is not necessary to destroy a civilisation. Each civilisation dies from indifference towards the unique values that created it. (Nicolas Gomez Davila)
To paraphrase Martin Niemoller’s quotation: “First they came for the National Socialists, and I did not speak out. Then they came for the writers, and I did not speak out — because I was not a writer. Then they came for the ethnic patriots, and I did not speak out, because I was a liberal. Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Think not of me but think instead of your own situation and more important think of the future of your family. Read again and again Niemoller’s paraphrased quotation.
When a people’s enemies are this far advanced in controlling the thought processes of their trusting subjects there is neither time nor place for complacency. God helps those who help themselves.
James Larkin, the Irish revolutionary, said:
The great only appear great because we are on our knees. Let us rise.
The Soviet Union’s collapse was not due to its failings or because of negotiations between US President Ronald Reagan and Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev. The Soviet Bloc collapsed not because people of the Eastern European states voted against it but because the peoples overthrew their despicable unelected political elites.
The people marched in Romania and Prague, Warsaw and Danzig, Riga and Vilnius, Leipzig and elsewhere. The protestors demanded, threatened, and faced down authority, their tormentors — and they defied der lugen presse.
Some died at the barricades, many were arrested — but the barricades were built again and again. The betrayed peoples edged closer to the seats of power until they overthrew their regimes and their bootlicking apparatchiks.
And thus, overcoming our timidity, let each man choose; will he remain a witting servant of the lies, or has the time come for him to stand straight as an honest man, worthy of the respect of his children and contemporaries? (Alexander Solzhenitsyn)
One by one hard won valued freedoms we proudly held in trust for our children are sneaked and snatched away. Yesterday and today you can still purchase Mike Walsh Books on Amazon — but not from Kindle Direct Publishing. Tomorrow, who knows? Perhaps you will have a contraband copy slipped to you under the counter or mailed in a plain brown envelope.
Rise like Lions after slumber,
In unvanquishable number,
Shake to earth your chains like dew,
Which in sleep had fallen on you.
Ye are many, they are few.
— Percy Bysshe Shelley
Let’s not pretend we didn’t see it coming; let us remind ourselves that too few tried to awaken too many whose woeful inertia allowed their civilisation to be overthrown by their indifference. Nature abhors cowardice and is intolerant of the weak.
For now you remain up there, you cowardly lot paid by the enemies and our people you mock. But one day justice will no longer be forestalled, then the people will judge, and God help you all. (Karl Theodor Korner, German poet and soldier)
