"Kuhn’s View of Scientific Theory " meets David Kilcullen's..Australian Navy..Malcolm Turnbull's Paradigm Mincer "Our best allies are Muslim leaders.'’..."It is only the few."
“They are all men’s clubs,” she (mosque’s co-founder Abdel-Hakim Ourghi) said of Berlin’s many mosques, all of which separate worshippers by gender. “Their rules are antiquated and contradict the inclusive interpretation of Islam that I follow.
Meanwhile, Egypt’s Dar al-Ifta al-Misriyyah, a state-run Islamic institution that issues religious edicts, also released a statement that condemned the mosque’s egalitarian prayers. The legal department of Egypt’s Al-Azhar University even issued a fatwa on the mosque for what it calls practices incompatible with Islam.”

Firstly Islamic State members are Muslims who have invariably walked from innocent, peaceful, law abiding, moderate Muslim cultures codex(text and exemplar ( messianic) template) and birth to death development process, are altruistic enforcers/punishers/aligners - sociopaths from an Other cultures perspective if this Other culture intends to survive-which the Muslim culture has always created to maintain internal discipline and subjugate Other.
Clearly the statement by Malcolm Turnbull above determines him a dangerous fool for it proves he does not understand cultures do not care if you think their ideological constructs are 'archaic', 'antiquated' 'contradict' or 'modern' they are as they are, pretence by adherent outliers or otherwise Islam conforms with 'modern' Western constructs is, as is pointed out by the Muslim Islamic mainstream elite which determines the existence of violence terror-genocide in Western and their own streets, "incompatible with Islam" and cannot stand in the medium to long term, Muslim altruistic enforcers as they have and are now with the Islamic codex justification and authority will make sure of that despite the existence of any depth of Western security participating in such a charade to excuse Western elites own inaction by utilising a Muslim outlier of no consequence to outcomes on the ground other than a useless trophy. The measure of success, have the existence of such views in the past, even centuries past and now prevent Muslim terror-genocide against Other? Have they, do they?

Any cultural entity seeking to progress to the next generation intact or in a better position to survive operates under the well known cultural survival edict Dissimulate, Adapt, Discover, Improvise and Overcome regards the environment they find themselves in, of course Muslims utilise modern technology what did this idiot and his fellow experts think the Muslim altruistic enforcers/punishers/aligners would do, continue to utilise egyptian papyrus, and turn up at Muslim slackers home who refuse or are too lazy to go terrorising Other on Jihad, to eat the contents of their fridge and 'wait with them'-hang around in the lounge room as a punishment as the Quran stipulates, no they do not, technological advancement has occurred, with it globalisation has accelerated and advancement in weapons of enforcement-annihilation and the increased accessibility of such weapons via Muslim nation states, with finance gained directly from Muslim communities or via blackmail and exploitation of Western gullibility, where weapons supplied to one Muslim 'democratic' group appear in the hands of the Muslim 'non-democratic' group.
Rather than enabling a 'modern' Western version of what is not archaic such a vision enabling maximised liberty, equality and fraternity a flourishing life is being swept aside due to the Western intellectual elites propensity to lose itself up its own metaphysical arse whilst lashing itself with colonialism, neoliberalism and a new and more virulent deviance paradigm populism. Meanwhile weapons of mass destruction have the West transfixed in its headlights as other cultures utilises the imminent threat of utilisation even that of germ warfare to abuse the very institutions-processes the West itself created to inform economic social, political order, security and fair play - 'modernity'. If other cultures spent as much time flagellating themselves with such absurd invented constructs which give tenure and celebrity status in a make believe universe then we could be sure catastrophe would not be upon us as every culture's policy experts would be too busy looking in their respective paradigm mirror preening their next useless dissertation to be of any threat to Other and even their own - alas that's not reality.
Borders, the door of the house cease to exist, altruistic enforcers/punishers/aligners are in your pockets, in your communication systems 24/7 they have become as a result much more effective in being able to align adherence to the stipulated edicts of behavior justified and authorised by the Muslim codex which is the sacred source of all Muslims rationale system. Relative immediacy of response, reinforcement, punishment now applies to cultural behavior not only for Muslims but every other culture, gossip the vehicle of behavior modification and enforcement, with facebook, twitter, Skype, email,....provides the means to enforce human invented deviance constructs apostates, populists, neoliberals, etc. In other words cultures are becoming more polarised as the altruistic enforcers/punishers/aligners utilize modern technology to enforce their 'good' worldview. It is rather hypocritical of Malcolm Turnbull given he as well as the Muslims are utilising the exact same technology to get their worldview to override Other and can be ridiculed as having "many more smartphones than guns, more twitter accounts than fighters.".
Also in ridiculing, belittling Muslims for having "many more smartphones than guns, more twitter accounts than fighters.", particularly if some so called 'expert' informed this view, is extremely worrying for how else will hierarchy of altruistic enforcer/punishers/aligners inside and outside Muslim created organisations keep altruists in the battlefield either in your streets or outside, focused on the true Muslim path within whatever environment they exist, particularly as sociologists, social psychologists are now aware the cost of being a altruistic tends to be relatively high in some cultures compared to the cost to other members of the culture home with their fridges sitting on lounge chairs ie a culture determining strapping on a suicide vest as a good needs exceptionally intensive communication system in quantity and quality its a War Stupid. The important point is cultures with oppressive constructs invariably regards their own as well as Other require extensive quantitative and qualitative observation and enforcement communication tools to maintain equilibrium in whatever context relative to Other cultures. Why, has clearly eluded Malcolm Turnbull and his worthless experts who operate most effectively under the paradigm of enabling terror-genocide to remain in our streets rather than stopping it.
To claim the ethics-values driving Islamic/Muslim terror, subjugation of other are archaic: very old or old-fashioned, obsolete; anachronistic: belonging to a period other than that being portrayed.” That period being now in the twenty-first century one has to prove for any social/political entity, beyond reasonable doubt there is no continual persistence of the social/political entity utilising so called archaic, anachronistic: rationale within the entities behavioural variance otherwise it is the same logic as determining the behaviour of the sun heating the earth is archaic, anachronistic. The behaviour existed previously, continues to exist now driven by the exact same cultural forces and methods as in the past and has persisted across time and space it cannot be determined as, archaic, anachronistic for it is of the now as it has always been. You can claim any ethical construct be it beneficial or not should not exist at a specific time or time period for whatever reason, the fact is it exists and therefore is of the entity which creates it as it always has, it exists in a 'modern' period it is of the 'modern ' period. Your ideological ethics ruler developed under a differing ideological construct is a worthless device for the entity clearly does not agree if it did you would not even have to make such a claim.
"Hizb ut-Tahrir in Australia has a position that those “guilty of apostasy from Islam are to be executed” as stated in Article 7.3 of their draft “constitution” for Australia Uthman Badar, spokesman for the group in Australia, said at a public meeting in Bankstown library on 25 March 2017, “The ruling for apostates as such in Islam is clear, that apostates attract capital punishment and we don’t shy away from that.” Hizb ut-Tahrir, 25 March 2017."
If such an edict of cultural law 'capital punishment' clearly identifiable within the cultures codex (text and exemplar (messianic) template behavior), being murder-terror from an Other cultures perspective, even adherents themselves being perceived wrongly or rightly by fellow adherents as holding differring worldviews to the 'true path' being also subject to 'capital punishment' as we have seen and see, having been determined by a cultural entity and enforced since the beginning of its existence from the seventh century, Muhammad the Muslim exemplar had a little joke regards the murder of a women who ridiculed him, and many even silent have been murdered from then to now for being labeled as Other, Muslims as well, under what rationality can one determine such a cultural act of 'capital punishment'/murder-terror as archaic, applicable for a much earlier time period, when such behavior, a cultural belief as to the veracity of such behavior persists to this day?
Given an idea-practice of democracy albeit circumscribed existed more than a thousand years prior to the creation of the Islamic/Muslim ideology surely determines democracy be regarded as much more archaic and therefore even less justified existing today than an ideological construct which enables Other and adherents themselves to be murdered for holding differring worldviews.
Muslims 'absolutely' the group most victimized by global terrorism, researchers say By MICHAEL EDISON HAYDEN Jun 20, 2017,
It is inevitable for the construct of Other within the Quran determines Other as destined for grievous harm and severest penalty the Quran determines Muslims as Other if fellow Muslim's God give ability to ascertain if a Muslim is a really a true believer finds to the contrary - "forsake (the path)". The Muslim viewed as not following the 'True' Islamic doctrine i.e. the existence of different sects immediately determines each as Other in relation to the rest, is two faced professing adherence yet being found validly or not as not keeping to the true path or worse openly recanting adherence determines the Muslim or groups of Muslims open to the full terror-genocide paradigm inherent in the Islamic/Muslim cultures codex and exemplar (messianic) template) social/political method.
The Quran stipulates from the very beginning of the Quran, Surah 2 All-Baqarah these so called Muslims found to be wanting by their fellow Muslim adherents are regarded as even a worse than Other who God has simply caused to stray, infidels who reject the Islamic faith outright, for at least it was not of their own choosing, albeit the insane logic of the Quran determines God having purposefully led some to reject the faith i.e. they had no choice but to reject Islam are cursed by God for what God initiated in the first place those who once professed belief and subsequently recanted are determined as having done so of their free-will are cursed as well.
It is therefore a nonsense to determine because Muslims are the ones who at some point in time may be subject to terror-genocide more often than Other, that the Muslim culture should be pitied or worse not held responsible for the terror-genocide their very own cultural codex and exemplar (messianic) template combined birth to death development process inevitably informs against Muslims themselves defined as Other and Other cultures. It is complete madness not to know why significant attacks on Muslims occurs by their own Muslim family. One simply has reflect upon the violence paradigm existent in any culture, murder for instance is more likely to be committed by family members against other family members not outsiders. This does not mean cultures systemically creating sociopaths keen on killing their own for whatever reason should be therefore excused because at a point in time the sociopaths the culture itself creates are not killing as many Other. It is a logic which under non-pathological altruist paradigm would be determined as being regarded as sourced from a dangerous simpleton.
'Point in time' is not simply utilised for no reason, what has occurred in places where Other cultures are initially dominant population wise, if not in a dominant socially/politically i.e. subsequent to the arrival of Muslims in Alexandria, Egypt and Damascus Syria just two examples of thousands. Where are these Other cultures, they initially existed in large numbers in fact were the majority, was there not a point in time Other cultures suffered much more from annihilation by Muslims than Muslims did against their own?
The German Nazi at one point in time were killing more of their own than they were of Other, should those at that time feel the Nazi construct of Other able to be utilised against their own with such ferocity meant Other could accept the culture itself as a benefit to humanity?
Also of what comfort is a view a, even if it were indeed true, a certain culture kills more of its own than Other and therefore should not be held accountable for the tragedy, the loss of just one child let alone thousands it will deliver?
"Kuhn’s View of Scientific Theories
In his 1962 book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, Thomas Kuhn notes that when we think of the archetype of the scientist, the people who come to mind are Newton, Darwin, and Einstein. But science as it is done on a daily basis by working scientists is not at all like what those towering figures did. Newton, Darwin, and Einstein are revolutionary scientists whose work is different in kind from what Kuhn calls “normal science.” Normal science is quite the opposite of revolutionary.
Normal scientists work within what Kuhn calls a paradigm. Paradigms are powerful they give us the definition of our scientific terms, that is they tell us what we need to believe are the basic elements of reality. Paradigms tell us what counts as a legitimate question, what tools we can use to answer those questions and what counts as a legitimate answer. Normal science occurs when someone takes a question deemed meaningful by the paradigm uses the tools prescribed by the paradigm to find an acceptable answer within the paradigm. The solution is then published in a journal whose editors and referees are senior members of the community dependent upon the paradigm, indeed whose most powerful members are senior people who helped establish the paradigm. That publication can get one recognised in the community, it can help you get tenure at your institution and help you keep your job, if you want to feed your children you need to play according to the rules dictated by the paradigm and enforced by the community.
Scientists do not question the paradigm. They teach their students how to act according to it, and challenging it is considered a challenge to rationality itself. Rationality, Kuhn argues, exists only within the paradigm. Because the paradigms tells us what is real and how it works, to question the paradigm is to question the structure of the world itself, according to those within the paradigm that leads to nonsense, to think about the paradigm rather than through the paradigm is not to engage in science but philosophy.
Occasionally, however, anomalies pop-up....."
Professor Steven Gimbel, Professor of Philosophy. Gettysburg College, 2015
So much for the highly prized within paradigm 'unasked question' lauded from the first Sociology lecture to the last ... it is the 'Not to be asked question'' particularly in social sciences which are now 'more important than ever', rather than 'truth' as determined by the New York Times and the likeminded socialist-Marxist 'virtuous minority', a 'truth' which is increasingly applied with vigour within our social/political learning institutions via an exquisitely fabricated colonialism, neo-colonialism, neoliberalism, populism deviance paradigm achieving a 'Tranquillity of Silence' the Iranian theocracy political elite would be envious of. The socialist-Marxist 'virtuous minority' 'truth' despite what we see before us as significant anomalies-evidence to the contrary becomes fact-'brutal rurals'-populists the "Thousands of mutes and blind are not fitted to conclude a social pact. Weak, unorganised, bound by thousand trammels" can be attacked in the streets and silenced by whatever means institutional, psychological that can be brought to bear.
The same cognitive gymnastics utilised by Paul Joseph Goebbels Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945 to excuse Nazi abuse of fellow citizens under their deviance paradigm the socialist-Marxist 'virtuous minority' use to wash their hands. The self-defined good doing evil whilst proclaiming their hands are elsewhere.
