The Time Traveler – by Dan Simmons

Posted by Rob Longenecker on November 8th, 2006

As we watch the Democrats take the House of Representatives and speculate on the direction they will try to lead, my first concern is their weakness in the face of Islamic Radicalism.

With the media doing rectal exams on conservatives, questioning every direction taken in the war against terrorism and the political posturing of the Democrats, I suspect the Republicans will begin to slowly leak testosterone in the battle against the Islamofascists. I hope I’m wrong, but I wonder who will stand for victory in this battle for the survival of our civilization?

I highly recommend Dan Simmons essay on the “Time Traveler.” The Time Traveler appears from the future with news of Eurabia, Islamic conquest and the progress of the “Century War” against radical Islam.

It’s powerful, engaging fiction with warning for us all. I recommend you read it and comment on it. It’s well-written and you’ll find it easy reading.

    Before I worry about Islamic Radicalism I must worry about the COnservative Right here in the United States. I am worried that they will put their own religious doctrine ahead of common sense and do much harm to many scientific endeavors. For example Stem Cell Research being the one that is strongly on the fore front. With a nation that believes so strongly in GOd (at least the Christian one) we have to worry about the Christians trying to put their moral beliefs in front of those of non-Christians.

    Either way I am going to read Mr. Simmons books and I will comment back.

    Cheers.

    History is the only true and correct predictor of the future, proven accurate for hundreds of years, and yet we ignore it. While the politicians fight each other and buy votes and power with money extracted as taxes from one and given to another under whatever guise, the enemies of civilization watch and marvel at our immorality and stupidity. They wait for the time when their system can replace it. We are indeed rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic…while the politicians are rescued by their magic helicopters of power. The Islamofacists sharpen their beheading swords in the lifeboats already below. And when the politician’s helicopters finally land, the same sharp knives await them.
    As this last election season proves, no one is serious about saving us.

    I agree with your excellent post, Rob and thank you for alerting me to Simmons’ excellent short story. As for Tecumseh’s comments, I was laughing at thier sheer absurdity. “Before I worry about Islamic Radicalism I must worry about the COnservative Right here in the United States.”

    Oh yeah, let’s worry about the “Conservative Right” by ALL means! Because they’ll kill us in our sleep and declare jihad if we don’t believe their way. After all, Christians are known for beheading and threatening the lives of all who disagree. Way to focus on the TRUE danger there, guy.

    Hmmm, maybe YOU should read some history. All religious extremeists are dangerous… and not all of them are so easily identified.
