It is strange that men would fight and kill to grab power, kill and dehumanise others to stay in power, strain by all means to force their will on their people and then be forced to resign, retire, be dethroned, kill themselves or get killed in disgrace.

The Basic Education Laws Amendment Bill (BELA Bill) is part of a wider government conspiracy to neutralise the authority and influence of parents in the lives of their own children. The objectives of the BELA Bill is to wrestle control away from parents and School Governing Bodies that determine the quality and values of educational instruction for children.

The proposed amendments to the South African Schools Act will have a major impact on the independence of schools. Governing Bodies will lose almost all their powers with regard to pupil admissions, the school’s language policy and the appointment of teachers. Schools will simply be nationalised to become state institutions, which will result in major service delivery problems, schools becoming affirmative action targets, and overall decay setting in.

With robust Christian faith gone, the modern state’s only recourse is a pragmatism in which historic English liberties are jettisoned. Out of fear and confusion, they refuse to confront the real threat – Islam – head-on and hide behind extremism measures that will be used by progressives to assault Christianity. This leads to the tragic conclusion that, for many elites, the real targets of these new proposals aren’t terrorists, but Christians who refuse to accept the new order.

By helping us understand the logic of genocide, people can see the early warning signs of genocide and know when it is coming. Leaders can design policies to counteract the forces that drive each of the stages. Ultimately the best antidote to genocide is popular education and the development of social and cultural tolerance for diversity.

The ‘long march through the institutions’ as Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci put it is working out real well. Instead of taking over a nation with tanks and bullets, why not just subvert it from within? Take over the main institutions of power and influence, such as the media, schools, churches, courts and so on, and you can capture a culture.

Joseph Stalin, leader of the Soviet Union, set in motion events designed to cause a famine in the Ukraine to destroy the people there seeking independence from his rule. As a result, an estimated 7,000,000 persons perished in this farming area, known as the breadbasket of Europe, with the people deprived of the food they had grown with their own hands.

By June 1940, the Soviet Union had invaded and occupied Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, immediately implementing a reign of repression and terror. Soon after, the Soviets started conducting arrests, deportations and executions. Their main objective was to eliminate the nation’s cultural, business, political, and military elite.

Liberty means to exercise human rights in any manner a person chooses so long as it does not interfere with the exercise of the rights of others. This means, above all else, keeping government out of our lives. Only this path leads to the unleashing of human energies that build civilization, provide security, generate wealth, and protect the people from systematic rights violations. In this sense, only liberty can truly ward off tyranny, the great and eternal foe of mankind.

There is only so much ghastly information that our brains can absorb, only so much blood we can imagine.

Dictatorships are some of the most well-know political systems; throughout history, dictators have risen and fallen, often affecting the way the world sees their country at the time. However, if one hasn’t really lived in a dictatorship, it’s possible you’ll have the wrong idea on this type of political systems.

From the day the Bolsheviks seized power in Russia in 1917, dozens of attempts have been made across the globe to establish societies based on Communist principles. Moscow invariably supported these efforts by supplying them with massive amounts of money, weaponry, and tactical/political guidance. But virtually every Communist experiment – including Russia's – ultimately failed.

The word "GULAG" is the institution which ran the Soviet camps. But over time, the  word has also come to signify the system of Soviet slave labor itself, in all its forms and varieties: labour camps, punishment camps, criminal and political camps, women’s camps, children’s camps, transit camps. Even more broadly, “Gulag” has come to mean the Soviet repressive system itself.

The entire legal system in China is viewed by the Communist Party as, foremost, a tool through which it can maintain its dictatorship over the people, consistent with Marxist-Leninist thought. Accordingly, throughout its reign, the Party has used the laogai to persecute and intimidate large numbers of Chinese people who posed no real threat to their fellow citizens.

Pastors are being arrested for preaching sermons from the Bible, journalists have been routinely fined, and even private conversations between citizens have resulted in criminal investigations.

With the recent terror attacks in Paris, more and more people will be willing to exchange privacy for security as the general population looks to the government to do whatever is necessary to make them feel safe. While the purpose may sound noble, at a time when free speech is coming increasingly under attack, including attempts to prevent anonymous internet postings, it is easy to see how such power could be abused by authorities.

A project of immense secrecy, it is the final piece in a complex puzzle assembled over the past decade. Its purpose: to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world’s communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks.

In Germany the Nazis first came for the communist, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Finally they came for me, but there was no one left to speak up to.” - Martin Niemoeller, a Lutheran Pastor who was sent to the Dachau Concentration Camp in 1938.
