The attack on Paris last night is an attack on the freedom that all of us in the western, civilised world currently enjoy, but what is a civilised answer to it and is there a single one?
I would imagine that most of France have a violent solitary solution this morning that amounts to the wholesale slaughter of others.
Although that is a natural reaction it’s not a rational one, however, this is not a rational situation!
In all probability these killers wanted a dramatic reaction, the problem is they might not get the reaction that’s needed.
I believe the answer must come from within these radical groups and the ‘people’ who support them with their silence. If these killers were Muslims, as seems highly likely, then genuine followers of that religion will be as shocked and affronted by this murderous act of barbarism as are the rest of us. But unlike the rest of us, some that hide behind the religious banner of Islam must know who the leaders and financial backers of these terrorists are!
I’m no prophet, but it’s not an unreasonable proposition to foresee a war raging soon on the streets of every major city in the whole world. A war where there will be no winners, only the casualties of freedom.
About Daniel Kemp
Daniel Kemp is a member of The Society of Authors. His introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself!
On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company.
All ten of his novels are now published by CNext Chapter with the tenth novel being a two-part ending to the Heirs and Descendants Series. A Covenant of Spies completed the four-book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? Once I Was A Soldier and A Widow's Son.
Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was a number-one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, the UK, Canada, and Australia.
Although it's true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the two novellas he wrote, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled--The Story That Had No Beginning.
He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising his first novel.
There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.
