about: I am a liberal free thinker who loves the western civilization based on the free and open market economy. I consider the western democracy to be best form of government the humans have discovered to date. I won't say that there is no need of improvement in this but this improvement cannot come from communism and religion. I strongly oppose both communist and religious governments because both are very anti-human and anti-freedom. I am not a fan of greedy capitalists either.

The west has successfully defeated the vicious communism [1] to a large extent. The west has successfully defeated the vice regime of Christianity and Church [2]. But we must understand that currently the biggest threat to the western freedom loving society is from the vicious ideology of Islam which is at crossroads with the modern liberal western civilized world and from the pseudo-liberals who are practicing double standards when it comes to the issue of critical study of Islam. These pseudo-liberal Islam apologists (whether bought and paid for or not) are hunting down any thoughtful and legitimate criticism of Islam, its prophet Muhammad and its scriptures. They are using various types of pressure tactics for this. For example, they are labeling any criticism of Islam as racist attacks on Muslims or as Islamophobia or as right wing acts. The freedom lovers, liberals and humanists must understand this threat posed by the vicious ideology of mainstream Islam. These views by Bill Maher and Sam Harris may help understand this point in a better way. [3], [4], [5]

Am I against Muslims? No, I do have many Muslim friends and many of them understand the viciousness of Islam.

In fact, it should be noted that the fight must be with Islam and not with general Muslim population and that the fight must be on the ideological front.
