Is The Kabul Mess The End of A War Or The Start of Another Migration Wave?

The Biden administration and its NATO allies have scrambled out of Afghanistan in the most chaotic and irresponsible way: Weapons fell into the hands of the enemy and, in an attempt to not embarrass the now exiled government, the level of security was misrepresented leaving thousands trapped. During the preparation of the withdrawal no time was spent to identify those who could have moved to other places, non-Western countries, and in the rare cases of highly skilled and highly freedom-oriented individuals, to Western countries. Now, thousands of unknown passengers are transported to Western nations and nobody can identify who is deserving and who merely seeks their financial luck.

Was the war a mistake? After the initial revenge for 9/11 it seems to have grown into one. NGOs and many a military officer saw an opportunity to elevate their status and income. They did not honestly report the (lack of) progress to the citizens at home while more and more money sank into the swamp. Afghanistan was not ready to run its own affairs and won’t be anytime soon. It is a place where small advances can be encouraged, but large civilisational jumps can’t be imposed. The same holds true for immigrant populations. It is not enlightened to expect more of people than they can achieve. The individual can be advanced if he is open to it. Masses of people or entire countries will have to take their time.

Poland Leaves The Feminist Istanbul Convention – I Read The Treaty

Poland is leaving the feminist Istanbul Convention. The country argues about the convention. I join in and read the treaty in 9 videos. It is possible that the EU may ascend the convention which could come with sanctions for countries that don’t oblige. As of today the Istanbul Convention has not been ratified by EU members Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, and Slovakia. East Europe is currently also battled by the Eurocrats for keeping some of their departments free of leaflets that advertise for queer pressure group talking points. Some Polish cities are currently cut out of EU city partnership programs because of that.

I don’t want to discuss the queer policy wars in this series, though.

Episode 1: The Preamble

Today, I run you through the Preamble of the feminist Istanbul Convention.

Episode 2: Chapter I

In Chapter I it becomes clearer how the pretext of violence prevention is used to usher through a whole baggage of ideological policy goals “against discrimination” and for the “empowerment of women.” It should be no surprise that violence is redefined to include obscure concepts like psychological and even “economic” violence. The self-righteousness is so epic that the treaty does not even shy away from suggesting constitutional changes.

Episode 3: Chapter II

Turkey is now also considering the exit. While many points touched, not tackled, in the treaty are still a considerable problem in Turkey, and much more so than in Poland, the vagueness and the focus of the treaty shows why other approaches are more effective. I read Chapter II which shows how the Council of Europe bundled its energy for the purpose of channelling money into feminist groups, sinecure offices and newly established bureaucracy.

I mention a previous video on the NGO funding through the German state. Additionally, you can see where such money probably turns up again in “chaz”-like autonomous areas like Rigaerstra├če or Connewitz in my videos on Rigaerstra├če and Connewitz.

Episode 4: Chapter III

Today I read chapter III which lines out the propaganda efforts from education over public to private media. All areas of life have to be mobilised for the eradication of all violence to the last case.

Episode 5: Chapter IV

Hotlines, battered woman shelters, trauma support, the wheel must be reinvented. The ladies touched a lot of issues that have already been solved. Yes, a legal system does exist and, yes, despite Black Lives Matter, a police force also does exist.

Episode 6: Chapter V

I read Chapter V which “solves” all the problems of Islam. For whatever reason feminists believe that committees, sinecure offices and tax payer money are what heals the wounds. It also “solves” all the problems, you thought, were already solved. Yes, it should be illegal to threaten people and countries should criminalise physical violence.

Episode 7: Chapter VI

Episode 8: Chapter VII

In this episode I read Chapter VII which deals with all matters of migration and asylum. Of course, barely any elitist writing comes without migration support these days. Even the ostensible topic ‘violence against women’ seems to offer a stage for that issue.

Episode 9: Chapter VIII To End

I run through the rest of the Istanbul Convention. It seeks to establish GREVIO the “Group of experts on action against violence against women and domestic violence.” It is selected by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe and the obscure “expertise” is supposedly based on the sheer divinely supremacy of their pristine virtues.
