Mark Steyn is this author who has called young men from Quebec cowards because they did not stop Marc Lepine in time and did the same for Virginia Tech students, calling them cowards also because they did not charge empty handed the gun blazing Cho. Now, how can we explain a man like Steyn saying such apparently outrageous things? Very easily, the man and all his right winger friends' diatribe can best be explained by one word, and one word only: FEAR. The man perspires fear, he secretes it, and that is his only secret.
Let's see. The man is Jewish, this could explain many things. In his book America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It, a New York Times bestseller by the way, he expresses fear that America could lose its war against terrorism. He further fears that Islam could overcome Europe through its birthrate. As any fanatic Israel supporter, he also fears that the Jews could be overcome some day by the much more numerous Muslims. Therefore he secretly advocates genocide because he is afraid of the enemy that is reproducing in such vast numbers, fear again. Therefore he advocates massacres, is in favour of ethnic cleansing in the Balkans and the massacre of Palestinians. The driving force in Steyn's life is FEAR, like in any such extremist who nervously advocates senseless violence and massacres: there is no way around it, the smell of it is simply overpowering.
Fear that America and Europe could be supplanted at some point, fear that Israel could lose its military superiority in the region, Steyn's recurring nightmare is that the Muslim population growth could mean defeat for his personal philosophy and his way of living in the long run. Now, is somebody like that in any position to give advice to anyone? Certainly not. First priority would be that he seeks help and counsel, probably therapy too, for his anxiety problem. Someone talking of European genocide and advocating violence as a remedy has mental problems no doubt. Are these fears justified? Probably not. Steyn has a history of Multiculturalism phobia, and as we know, paranoia has always been the realm of overzealous patiots. It is a fact that such patriots have a tendency to be much more numerous in mental institutions than on real battlefields.
