Is Purity of Heart Enough?

By Rich Kozlovich

Autumn Cote posted an article on LinkedIn entitled, "What is the Appropriate Response to ISIS?"   It was a well thought article and hardly blood thirsty, but it did generate some interesting comments. 

Steve Lewis, the owner of Lewis Oilfield Consulting wants to drop “pork bombs” on ISIS.  Well, hardly deadly, but, Rex Stock President and CEO at RDS, Incorporated took serious offence to this by saying “Appropriate comment coming from a racist pig”, which is interesting since Islam isn't a race, and Steve clearly isn’t a pig, and such a comment can’t be construed as anything but an ad hominem attack, which is listed among the logical fallacies.  

Then someone named William Adams, CEO Amalgamated Conglomerates said he wants to drop, “air fuel bombs neutron bombs plague virus anything and everything to erase those savages asap.”  Rex naturally took umbrage at this, saying; "And what happens to those innocent citizens that you and Cruz want to "carpet bomb"? Plague virus?”  Quite a natural reaction, but it doesn’t stop there.  David Gold of Capital Sourcing Group wants - “Complete annihilation”! Bottom of ForOf Of  Rex then asks, What about the innocent people that comes with that kind of approach?”

Then David Emil comments: “I am afraid Rex is right. These are the very real byproduct of NLP conditioning/extension of Koch financed secondary education programming. The end goal is literally the weird balding xenophobes hiding out in a cave worshiping a nuclear bomb in the 1970 movie series Planet of the Apes. I suspect there are people in lab coats actually crowdsourcing possible threats to their perfect world paradigm. I believe it is a rigid cast structure of technical beneficiaries at the top while the majority are cast down with wet works and false flags. Every now and then a gift will be bestowed among the masses. A chip implant here, a re-education device there, or a pharmaceutical trial you should be grateful for.”

Naturally Rex loved this, having found a kindred spirit saying - "Matt, you're at the wrong discussion. Your kind of sensible approach is not what this crowd of chicken hawks commenting on another Autumn Cote hate piece advocates. This crowd thinks an atomic bomb would result in "necessary collateral damage" and be the smart way to "save the world". 
 
As I said, Rex also used the term vigilantes and called those with whom he disagreed “the dark underbelly of America”.  Interestingly that comment seems to have disappeared.

At any rate, I decided to comment myself saying: Interesting points of view. Rex used the terms “vigilantes, the dark underbelly of America and racist pig” regarding the author and/or others. But David is truly classic. He says, they – apparently all - “are the very real byproduct of NLP conditioning/extension of Koch financed secondary education programming. The end goal is literally the weird balding xenophobes hiding out in a cave worshiping a nuclear bomb in the 1970 movie series Planet of the Apes. I suspect there are people in lab coats actually crowd sourcing possible threats to their perfect world paradigm. I believe it is a rigid cast structure of technical beneficiaries at the top while the majority are cast down with wet works and false flags. Every now and then a gift will be bestowed among the masses. A chip implant here, a re-education device there, or a pharmaceutical trial you should be grateful for.”

Wow! Now come on folks, you just have to be impressed with the synapses of David's mind to have gotten all of that out of what was said. But I have to thank David since I had not heard of NLP conditioning before this and had to look it up. What I didn't see are any solutions.  A lot of insulting rhetoric, but no solutions. It's clear Rex and David offer purity of heart, which apparenlty doesn't preclude insults,nor does it seem generate solutions.
 
But perhaps that's unfair, although I can't seem to find a "Book of Fair" written by anyone, and so often in my life I've found "fair" is often determined by whose ox is being gored. But in order to make sure we have clarity I said I would be interested in reading more in depth presentations of their views via a few questions: 

1. Do you believe there's a problem at all?
2. If there is a problem, who's at fault?
3. Is so, what should be done about it?
4. Are there any good guys or bad guys?
5. If so, which are which?
6. Do you believe Islam requires jihad?
7. Do you believe there is such a thing as jihad?
8. Do you believe Islam requires violence against all others?
9. If so, what do you think should be done about that if anything?
10. Do you think Islam needs reformed?
11. Do you believe Islam can be reformed?
12. Do you think Islam is fine just as it is?
13. If so, what would you recommend?
14. Do you believe Islam is a race?
15. If not, why call someone a racist?
16. Why do you believe the writer and respondents are xenophobes?
17. Do you believe they're Islamophobic?
18. Do you believe a phobia is an “unnatural” fear?
19. Do you believe it's unnatural to fear those who claim they want to kill you?

So I asked in conclusion – Could either David or Rex (or both) please publish an article outlining their entire view on this subject answering all the questions listed....and anything more they feel is appropriate. Mind you – no name calling, no smarmy comments, no insults, no logical fallacies - just a good sound intellectual argument to support the views they wish to express. And I think it's imperative there be a solution in their argument!

I’ve not heard back as this point but a highly intelligent man name Ron Rice, owner of Checkmate Forensic Handwriting Examiners, N.E. Legal Investigations and Court Appointed Crime Profiler commented - Mr. Kozlovich: Finally; finally; finally! A reader that presented a well thought out challenge to those whom possess the purity of mind and thought absent from those of us who are..... oh well... Readers, read the interesting comments by Rex and David and see if you can offer an intelligent comment to the discussion. Mr. Kozlovich, high five to you!

See, I told you he was highly intelligent!
