I want to save the world.
A childhood dream.
And still a driving force.
Then, butterfly flutters and worldwide impact.

I'm writing today because of 4 things. First, in a recent interview, I was asked to say a bit about myself, and I came to a new answer.

Then, once again, I heard of the flutter of a butterfly's wings leading to something huge - in this case, not a tornado on the other side of the world, but World War I.

Third, I've received emails, once again, of the dangerous situation of Hindus in parts of India - and the lack of interest of most local Hindus to the threat.

Fourth, it's almost the Summer Solstice.

I'll start with my answer to the interview question: say a bit about yourself. Usually I speak about childhood, current concerns, maybe education. This time I realized that something core to me, since childhood, is the desire to save the world. Most children have that desire. I still have it, undiminished.

My focus on Islam came from that desire - because even a bit of research showed that Islam endangers human rights and freedoms.

To watch the interview (interviewer: Louie B Free):

Next, the potential impact of a butterfly's flutter. Recently, into my inbox came an email, contending that World War I was started by a speech by a British politician.

Here's the exact headline - Britain Started WWI And WWII And Both Times Blamed Germany:

According to the article, in 1914, a British politician, knowing full well that the outcome would be a world war, made an inflammatory speech due to Germany's economic rivalry with Great Britain:
British Foreign Secretary, Sir Edward Grey knew what he was doing when he got to his feet in the House of Commons . . .

From all I have read from many sources, no one had any idea, in 1914, that a huge war could be in the offing. There had been a number of instances of brinkmanship.

Still, I found it interesting that this one speech may have changed what was expected to be one more instance of brinkmanship into a massively destructive war.

The article caught my attention, not because of the author's contention, but because there is another butterfly effect I'm interested in - the flutter that may shatter Islam, that may reverb at exactly the frequency to get going that particular butterfly effect.

I know many people believe Islam is strong and sturdy.

Likewise, in 1914, most people believed the Austro-Hungarian empire was strong and sturdy. Five years later, along with Germany, it had been defeated, and it was soon dismantled.

Is there a butterfly flutter that will lead to something similar happening to Islam? I don't know. I know it's possible.

I also know it matters, that we each do what we can. Here's a quote from the Talmud:

Do not be daunted by the insurmountability of the world’s grief. Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly, now. You are not obligated to complete the work but neither are you free to abandon it.

In terms of what I'm doing, soon I will be launching a new site, one more effort in the quest to save the West, to save human rights and freedoms:

I started by mentioning India. Most of the news is in languages unfamiliar to most people in the West, myself included. So my information comes largely from readers. Major concerns I hear about are:
- the increase in Muslim populations in India, though the partition of India was supposed to create one Hindu state and one Muslim state;
- violence in India against Hindus, including the abduction in some areas of young Hindu women, their forced conversion to Islam, and their forced marriage to Muslim men;
- and just as in the West, the lack of concern with Islam by a huge percentage of the population.

I mention India because we - people concerned with the threat posed by Islam - are in this together.

So much to do, for those of us who care about human rights and freedoms!

Finally, it's almost the Summer Solstice (in the northern hemisphere), or the Winter Solstice (in the southern hemisphere). June 21. The longest day of the year north of the equator, the shortest south of the equator. I like to mark the solstices and equinoxes, natural turning points of the year, to take a moment to reflect and also think forward.

And so, all the best on the solstice and onward.

As always, all the best to all of us who care and do,
