When two years ago a Texas father beat his daughter’s rapist to death, no one in Texas had any doubts as to what the decision of the Grand Jury would be. The law in Texas not only allows but specifically authorizes the use of lethal force to prevent sexual assault. In this, the state gives more power to individuals than it reserves to itself and its courts, because the same law doesn’t prescribe death penalty for rapists when they are brought to court.
Now, in my personal opinion, this is a flawed approach: the Biblical Law specifically says that rape is like murder (Deut. 22:26), and therefore the same penalty should apply; the state should execute proven rapists just as it authorizes individuals to execute rapists caught in the act. Either way, under the law in Texas, a rapist should be more afraid of being caught by private citizens than of being taken to court.
If Germany had Texas’ laws, and if Germany had Texas’ men, the Western world wouldn’t be now talking about the barbaric lust of the Muslim men. Rather, the Muslim world would be talking about the terrible wrath of the Western men.
What happened in Cologne was a real disaster, there’s no doubt about it. And the reaction of the government was weak, there’s no doubt about it. And the German police showed their real face, which, in the final account, is no different than the face of any other occupation army charged with the task to fight civilian population: soft on the dangerous criminals and tough on the harmless, law-abiding, productive members of the society, whom the cops are supposed to “protect.”
We all knew that the cops – whether in the US or in Germany – never had any intention to protect the taxpayers; to the contrary, it’s the taxpayer who is to be robbed and harassed at will, and when he protests, to be treated as the enemy and murdered at will.
That’s the nature of police as it was envisioned by the ideologues of the French Revolution, and that’s what it continues to be today, in both Europe and the US. Expecting the police to protect law-abiding citizens is naïve. Contrary to all the mythology about government, the government’s standing armies can’t provide any safety, and were never meant to provide any safety for the ordinary citizen. The only safety they were ever meant to provide was for the government against its own citizens. They can’t maintain order either; social order is never the product of government action but of the social beliefs and habits of millions of citizens.
When the citizens are willing to maintain social order, there is order, even if there is no police. When there is a group – even a small group – that rebels against order, there will be disorder, no matter what the police does. And only individual citizens who are protecting their own life, property, and liberty can stop the disorder.
All in all, when it comes to safety, security, and social order, cops are useless; and Cologne should be a good warning to Europeans about the dangers of transferring social power to the government for the purposes of safety, security, and social order.
But Europeans seldom listen to common sense as it applies to justice and social order. Sixty years ago, Sir Winston Churchill said about Americans that, “You can always count on them to do the right thing – after they’ve tried everything else.” What he left out is that Europeans seldom do the right thing, because it’s “how Americans do it, not us.”
They are good, though, at blaming somebody else. For example, blaming refugees for importing a “rape culture.” A European political commentator even went so far as to ask publicly, “Didn’t Frau Merkel know that these men had penises?” For some reason he didn’t continue to the logical conclusion of his question: Ban all men with penises, and the rape problem will be solved.
But the truth is, as uncivilized and barbaric Muslim men are, they didn’t import the “rape culture.” They only took advantage of it. Because the rape culture has been present in Europe for almost a generation now, and it has been growing, and no one has been protesting against it, and everyone has accepted it for granted. It has been established by the very laws of the European states, by the dominant ideology, not only of the elites, but of the voters as well.
For several decades, the European populations didn’t take rape seriously as a crime; they looked at it lightly, shrugged, and continued voting for more legislative establishment of rape culture.
The most significant establishment of that culture came in 1949 when the Parliament of the newly established West Germany voted to abolish the death penalty. It was done against the will of the majority of the voters at the time, and it was done for purely political reasons: to protect the still unpunished Nazi war criminals against execution.
The German population at the time, still devastated by the war – and perhaps conditioned by two generations of monarchical and then Nazi rule to submit to the government – did not protest. Thus, in 1949 the West German parliament declared to the world that in Germany, no crime is considered serious enough to deserve the ultimate earthly punishment.
If even the mass murders in the concentration camps didn’t deserve the death penalty, much less an individual rape would deserve it. Prior to the Weimar Republic, the local provinces had their own decentralized legislative solutions to rape, and many of them had capital punishment on the books for many kinds of especially brutal assault, including sexual assaults.
