The WWIII Chronicles: Introduction

As 2015 draws to a close I am beginning the development of a theme that has been ruminating in my mind for more than a year. The theme is that we are witnessing the initial skirmishes of the hot phase of World War Three (WWIII) identified by many as the New Cold War or Cold War 2. There are almost daily events that we can weave into this theme which is why we are starting this journal as a set of chronicles.

Although we like to think in terms of linear causation with the result we attribute specific events as seminal markers, that is not how the world works. A linear deterministic mode of thinking can never capture the evolution of a complex system of the actions and interactions of many actors.

Taking World war I as an example, The Week gives us the common cited simplistic immediate cause of the war as the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, the archduke of Austria-Hungary. The Week also outlines several geopolitical situations that fed into an active hot phase of hostility. By ‘hot phase’ we mean military action.

A SEDITIOUS CLICHE

In this essay, Paul briefly covers the history of the State of Israel, the hostile response of the Arab and Muslim world based on the teachings of Muhammad, and the projection of this threat to the entire world. He calls on the need of a similar defensive response on the part of the West, similar to what the state of Israel has created. We present this essay reprinted by permission of Paul and from The Bayview Review. See the links at the end for direct access to the rest of Paul’s work.

Political Genesis of a Theological Fallacy.

Clichés exist because they serve a purpose – as short-cuts to conclusions that might not be reached if we took time to think about them. In short, there is always some motive involved.

Take this one: Isn’t it true, after all, that we all believe in the same God?  — we” meaning Jews and Christians and Muslims.

This dictum springs effortlessly to the lips of politicians and spokesmen for the police when presented with an opportunity to discountenance an act of outrage against a mosque, a synagogue or a church. Official voices speaking for our ecumenical denominations take the cue and join in. It seems not merely right but necessary – a requirement of public order. It does not follow, however, that it is true. Indeed, the very fact that it snaps into place so automatically is the best objective clue to its falsity.
