"The Force of Reason" versus Islam

Is this straight out of Atlas Shrugged, or what?

ROME (Reuters) - A judge has ordered best-selling writer and journalist Oriana Fallaci to stand trial in her native Italy on charges she defamed Islam in a recent book.

The decision angered Italy's justice minister but delighted Muslim activists, who accused Fallaci of inciting religious hatred in her 2004 work "La Forza della Ragione" (The Force of Reason).

Fallaci lives in New York and has regularly provoked the wrath of Muslims with her outspoken criticism of Islam following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on U.S. cities.

In "La Forza della Ragione," Fallaci wrote that terrorists had killed 6,000 people over the past 20 years in the name of the Koran and said the Islamic faith "sows hatred in the place of love and slavery in the place of freedom."

Coldplay's Chris Martin = Capitalist Slave?

Jesse Jackson has become a parody of himself

What a joke!

"President Vicente Fox tried to smooth relations with the U.S. black community Wednesday." Isn't that opening line racist in its own right? What is "the back community?"

So I suppose Jesse Jackson still thinks he can exploit "his people." What an ass born of collectivism.

People's Republic of Canada banning satellite communication?

Satellite radio is not allowed into Canada because it has the potential to put Canadian commercial radio stations out of business. Canadian commercial radio stations derive their revenue from advertising sales and if their audiences decline because of satellite radio then they risk going out of business as advertising revenues fall.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) under the guise of Canadian cultural protection has outlawed satellite radio to protect the interests of commercial radio operators.

Canadian radio business are using Canadians' penchant for collectivism to protect their own interests at the expense of the individual consumer. Sound familar? Free speech be damned - save the existing radio stations! People might not listen if they have more options!

I hope a black market develops to render these laws obsolete (working essentially in the same way the internet does to undermine collectivistic theivery).
