However, I think you can use Guadalupe as an analog.  Who would have predicted 5 million conversions in so short a time.

So we are probably going to see a big miracle.

Can only see it if our slave master boss lets us off from the capitalistic assaembly line you so support...otherwise, we will have to beg and plead to see anything,,,,then wait for permission to take the time off.....

I think this is by far my favorite quote from you ever.

Not only does it have nothing to do with the topic at hand, but it includes your ever-famous ellipses, and then you replace one of the ellipses with commas, and then you deride capitalism.

It'd be perfect, but you didn't mention distributism at all.  :(

Ah, but it's the unspoken menace that underlies all of Belloc's postings, that's why it's so insidious, although we can't really blame him obviously.  Everything in the world can be linked to distributism in 6 degrees or less, even Kevin Bacon.

Returning to my implausible notion of the Mohammedans; they don't need to come from Arabia, they already are all over Italy. Jihad by the aliens within. Did you see the skinny French little firemen pee themselves when the Mohammedans threw France up for grabs. Italians are different and like to kill at close quarters ( that's why they invented the short sword the Gladius) but this is the country of Dom Camillo and Culo Duro, Il Duce, and Beppo, and they are a theatrical comedic-tragedy waiting to happen. Can't you see Umberto Ecco dressed as a Capuchin with a small dagger running around trying to ambush an Ayatollah?

But they won't be soliders with bullet and arrows.  They'll just be a rabble of uneducated. largely unemployed immigrants.  I imagine even the Swiss guard could see them off.  They won't be trained, they won't be co-ordinated, they won't have supply lines or common communications, or generals or plans.

What was so remarkable about 911 was that a bunch of muppets with box cutters and a daring plan were able to do what they did.  But it hasn't happened since and had American even been semi-awake to the threat ("I wan't to learn to fly a plane but not land it") then it would have never happened in the first place.

Belloc, as an observation, if you put half of the effort into running a small business as you do into your passion for distributism, you'd make a healthy wedge of money every year.  Sure there are problems with every system but the reality is that I fly off around the world 10 times a year, go on at least 4 little holidays and my kids have never worn their shoes out.  I have fillet and sirloin steak a couple of times every month and I drive a personal express train with its own climate control system.  I even have a chair that massages my overweight under-excercised body.  In the western world we've never had it so good.

You don't have to be a wage slave.

Funny how I over looked that word "soldiers" then isn't it. I'll need to re-dream my my scenario, but thanks ggreg.
