An Army of Tlotoxls Dr. Who, The Aztecs and Radical Islam

IAN: If only you could stand away from this thing, you’d see it clearly. Autloc’s the extra­or­di­nary man here. He’s the rea­son­able one, the civilised one, the one that’s pre­pared to lis­ten to advice. But he’s one man, Bar­bara. One man.

Doc­tor Who The Aztecs 1964

“Be it so. This burn­ing of wid­ows is your cus­tom; pre­pare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a cus­tom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and con­fis­cate all their prop­erty. My car­pen­ters shall there­fore erect gib­bets on which to hang all con­cerned when the widow is con­sumed. Let us all act accord­ing to national customs.”

Gen­eral Charles Napier 1843.”

One of the most amaz­ing terms that has become preva­lent among the left is some­thing they call cul­tural impe­ri­al­ism. The idea that all cul­tures and all prac­tices are equally good and equally right and to impose one set of beliefs upon another peo­ple is a moral wrong.

The left unites on this sub­ject as they do on few oth­ers, using it as a club against both Chris­tian­ity and West­ern Civ­i­liza­tion in gen­eral. I recall the out­rage when Ann Coul­ter a few days after Sep­tem­ber 11th with close friends newly slaugh­tered had this to say:

We should invade their coun­tries, kill their lead­ers and con­vert them to Chris­tian­ity. We weren’t punc­til­ious about locat­ing and pun­ish­ing only Hitler and his top offi­cers. We carpet-​bombed Ger­man cities; we killed civil­ians. That’s war

No doubt such sen­ti­ments were fueled by the newly dead in NY and Wash­ing­ton but a dozen years after she was pil­lo­ried for her state­ments as we pre­pare to leave the Afghan women to the ten­der mer­cies of the Tal­iban, Egypt to the ten­der mer­cies of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, Alge­ria, Syria and Libya to the ten­der mer­cies of Islam­sts, the oil states to the ten­der mer­cies of an atomic Iran and debate aid­ing France in Mali against Rad­i­cal Islam­sits the time has come to re-​consider our think­ing about Islam in gen­eral and rad­i­cal Islam in particular.

That being the case the thing that nat­u­rally comes to my mind to under­stand what is going on is…Doctor Who.

When the series was first launched the choice of a Sci­ence Teach and a His­tory Teacher in the TARDIS was delib­er­ate as sto­ries would go from his­tory based to sci­ence or sci-​fi based. In the cur­rent series when­ever the Doc­tor and his friends end up in Earth his­tory it’s invari­ably to deal with some kind of alien inva­sion or space threat threat­en­ing to change his­tory, but in the early years of Dr. Who it was just inter­act­ing with the peo­ple of the time and deal­ing with what­ever came up.

Yes­ter­day BBC Amer­ica played the 1964 1st Doc­tor Episode The Aztecs. With only 17 sto­ries avail­able in their entirety and not all of them 2 hours or less, the use of a his­tor­i­cal story (mean­ing the cheesy spe­cial effects of 1964 are bypassed) com­bined with the rep­u­ta­tion of the story as one of the best of the era it was an easy choice, but there is not a sin­gle story more rel­e­vant to events tak­ing place today then this one.

The fol­low­ing con­tains spoil­ers so if you don’t want to know details about the episode skip to page 3, oth­er­wise go to page 2 for a sum­mary of Doc­tor Who and the Aztecs.

IAN: If only you could stand away from this thing, you’d see it clearly. Autloc’s the extraordinary man here. He’s the reasonable one, the civilised one, the one that’s prepared to listen to advice. But he’s one man, Barbara. One man.

Doctor Who The Aztecs 1964

“Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs.”

General Charles Napier 1843.”

One of the most amazing terms that has become prevalent among the left is something they call cultural imperialism. The idea that all cultures and all practices are equally good and equally right and to impose one set of beliefs upon another people is a moral wrong.

The left unites on this subject as they do on few others, using it as a club against both Christianity and Western Civilization in general.  I recall the outrage when Ann Coulter a few days after September 11th with close friends newly slaughtered had this to say:

We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren’t punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That’s war

No doubt such sentiments were fueled by the newly dead in NY and Washington but a dozen years after she was pilloried for her statements as we prepare to leave the Afghan women to the tender mercies of the Taliban, Egypt to the tender mercies of the Muslim Brotherhood, Algeria, Syria and Libya to the tender mercies of Islamsts, the oil states to the tender mercies of an atomic Iran and debate aiding France in Mali against Radical Islamsits the time has come to re-consider our thinking about Islam in general and radical Islam in particular.

That being the case the thing that naturally comes to my mind to understand what is going on is…Doctor Who.

When the series was first launched the choice of a Science Teach and a History Teacher in the TARDIS was deliberate as stories would go from history based to science or sci-fi based.  In the current series whenever the Doctor and his friends end up in Earth history it’s invariably to deal with some kind of alien invasion or space threat threatening to change history, but in the early years of Dr. Who it was just interacting with the people of the time and dealing with whatever came up.

Yesterday BBC America played the 1964 1st Doctor Episode The Aztecs. With only 17 stories available in their entirety and not all of them 2 hours or less, the use of a historical story (meaning the cheesy special effects of 1964 are bypassed) combined with the reputation of the story as one of the best of the era it was an easy choice, but there is not a single story more relevant to events taking place today then this one.

The following contains spoilers so if you don’t want to know details about the episode skip to page 3, otherwise go to page 2 for a summary of Doctor Who and the Aztecs.
