Now that I've heard Roger Scruton and his lecture on the specific historical facts about religion in the Middle East within the clash between them without democracy - I certainly need to read his book too... thank you for sharing this particular precious session !

There has been several 'World Wars' before disrupted country's peace for several decades, but the current warmongering events in the middle east is indeed disrupting the entire world's peace and an absolute threat to everyone's freedom of speech, and it will become impossible to resuscitate it.

Thank you for posting that link Haikon, because the link posted on the top thread has been banned, yet another sign of censorship as Roger Scruton mentioned, stifling important views and information!

It's outstanding Roger Scruton mentioned Qutb and how he was jailed and executed for his radical preaching just as they have done with Mohamed Morsi in Egypt!

Outside his career as a philosopher and writer, Scruton was involved in the establishment of underground universities and academic networks in Soviet-controlled Central Europe during the Cold War, and he has received a number of awards for his activities in this area. In June 2016 he was created a Knight Bachelor by Queen Elizabeth II in the Birthday Honours list published on the Queen's 90th birthday.

I've noticed that you have updated your interesting link - whereas it gives out historical facts by a philosopher and historian... it legally preambles our lives through a huge gap of culture... I wonder why deleting videos happens around some sites so OFTEN?

Thank you for sharing brilliant topics!

The massive opposition makes a lot of disgruntle people but we get along without killing each other... you won't find this in the third world!

It's admirably cool  how Roger Scruton calmly explains the Arab spring situation and how badly it turned out for everyone - who would have thought??!
