A New Caliphate?
by Bodwyn Wook
‘…[I]f History be any guide at all, the re-stabilisation of a significant period of historical time most likely will rise from within the intellectual & imaginal resources that dwell under the great dome of islamic culture.’
The emergence for the next century or so of a new centripetal islamic Caliphate cannot be ruled out.
Naturally, to acknowledge the possibility is unnerving for the political & professional classes of the Old Atlantic West; such a development with its patently reactionary trope, above all in the practise of religion in the World, is after a more absolute sign from History than any delivered as yet, namely that both the Renascence civilisation & the Late-modern age are over.
This is a prospect both repugnant & enraging to all of our most entrenched classes, including the entire western political class, the high-rolling Synarchs of on-going global incorporation who also are attacking all-out the territorial constitutional state & the languid, drawling, polysexual professorate of Deconstruction.
That cannot be helped.
The central problem in History thus focuses once more on the seemingly extreme lability of semitic cultures across History; this is a ‘challenge’ however illusory that nonetheless extorts often-violent responses from other more phlegmatic races, the hitlerite one being most hideous & awful thus far.
In any case, the West, also labile as well as languid, now has, precisely, nothing to offer to SW Asia & in view of the fact that western militaries all (NB) to-day are wholly shattered as to any strategic doctrine whatsoever, still less is there anything EFFECTIVELY to be done in the islamic world, not from outside & nor by the West.
However, if History be any guide at all, the re-stabilisation of a significant period of historical time most likely will rise from within the intellectual & imaginal resources that dwell under the great dome of islamic culture.
Therefore, I for one consider that the atrocious haemorrhage of religious mayhem & murder will necessarily go on for more generations & until, most likely, a pan-Turkish movement can once again seize control of the emerging caliphate & sit hard on sectarian feudatories.
