Cultural Death By A Thousand Cuts

og-maria-montessori-2252A little cut here, a little cut there. Then repeat. Whether it’s cultural Marxism or Islam, totalitarian anti-culture comes in many different forms and timeframes. For modern-day New New Europe it seems ‘fast-track‘ is the preferred approach to tyranny, especially when law-fare jihad is so easy and well-practised.

Eventually, like all schools in New New Holland, the Maria Montessori school in the Hague will understand the rules inclining to its own cultural death. and follow those rules without question*. In this case the transgression requiring a new rule was to dare to schedule ‘photo day’ during the Islamic month of Ramadan.

In future, does anyone not believe that every Islamic holy day will be carefully scrutinized by Maria Montessori staff before scheduling anything? Of course, they’ll attempt to cover up their own cultural suicide by adding a new policy that states “…no school event will be scheduled on religious or culturally-significant dates…”, but they will know the real reason. Does anyone believe that any event will be scrutinized for compliance with the Buddhist calendar?

Thus ends another tradition, replaced with an anti-tradition, a culture replaced with an anti-culture, something transforms into nothing. And perhaps not many people will notice that they no longer have a culture as they react to every little cut, until perhaps they notice that their culture, such as it is, consists entirely of avoiding any cuts at all?

Within the child lies the fate of the future. [Maria Montessori]
