The Multi-Layered Betrayal of Britain

In his latest guest-essay, the English author Paul Weston takes a clear-eyed look at the grim reality of Modern Multicultural Britain. Although his analysis is far from optimistic, he does remind us that everything in the UK is on the verge of counter-revolutionary change. There is no choice — the change has to come.


The Multi-Layered Betrayal of Britain
by Paul Weston


Paul WestonPoor old Britain is in a terrible state. Whilst the recent obscenity of a Labour government is mostly to blame for this, they were not alone in the cultural and racial war which has been waged against the British people over the last half-century. Such has been the all-encompassing assault on who we once were that it is now hard to find any social group which has not been betrayed.

For example:

The Wartime Generation: They sacrificed so much, indeed died in their hundreds of thousands in order that our generation could live in freedom. Today they are sidelined and ignored by the Socialist ruling classes, who consider the culture and politics of these aged warriors to be wildly out of tune with modern liberal group-think.

A book was published last year called The Unknown Warriors which collated the stories and concerns of this greatest, yet disregarded people. And it is a heartbreaking read. Over and over again these brave and stoic people mentioned one word — betrayal.

Their principal concerns were the submission of vast swathes of British cities to various foreign entities without due recourse to the democratic process, coupled with the bitter irony of handing over their bloodily defended democracy to an unelected, dictatorial foreign power in Brussels.

One particularly harrowing story was that of the extraordinary bravery shown by a Lancaster bomber rear-gunner, who continued to climb into his turret time and time again even as he saw scores of his friends killed in the most horrific ways imaginable. His bravery has been betrayed though, because he is now reduced to a prisoner within his own house, too frightened to go outside because of the violence and abuse he receives from Socialist-educated children as young as nine.

His despairing voice can be heard through another Royal Air Force veteran, who remarked eloquently of his comrades who had made the ultimate sacrifice for their country: “I mourned them then, but now surviving in a world indifferent to their hopes and dreams, I grieve more for the living.”

The Elderly: Mostly too young to fight in the war, they are nonetheless similarly excluded from modern liberal society. Their views on marriage, homosexuality, morality, Christianity, parenthood, etc. make them the enemy of Socialist ideology. In Africa, the elderly are treated with respect as learned human beings. In Britain the elderly are vilified for simply defying the Socialist Revolution, and as such are considered an embarrassing clutch of old dodderers who can be safely labelled as extremist whilst their views are carefully withheld from the young — who incidentally, and quite literally, frighten the life out of the elderly.

They watch in bemusement and horror as the politicians and the mainstream media force a degraded culture upon their country. They shiver in front of single-bar electric fires, wondering whether they can afford to eat and stay warm. They watch their carefully amassed life-savings eroded as the politicians and bankers artificially manipulate interest-rates and inflation-rates to benefit only themselves. They shake their heads at stories of Iraqis and Somalis living in luxuriously equipped million-pound mansions in which to house their teeming broods, all paid for by the state.

The Young: Who would be young in Britain today? Youngsters have been schooled in liberal/progressive ideology from the moment they set foot in kindergarten. Although filled with a wholly misguided sense of self-esteem, they require remedial classes in reading and writing when they go to university (as some 50% now do) and have no conception of what they do not know.

They view their historic culture as one of imperialism, oppression and racism. They have no notion of respect, civility, dignity, Christianity, duty, honour, integrity or patriotism. Propagandised all their lives in the Socialist ideologies of moral and cultural relativism and multiculturalism, they are blissfully unaware that everything they believe in can only lead to the loss of everything they presently take for granted.

When they leave university they take with them debts in the tens of thousands of pounds and compete for jobs that pay salaries that can never enable them to buy the immigration-driven grotesquely-priced houses that were once affordable to their parents. They turn to drink and drugs in the moral and spiritual vacuum built for them by the Socialist Left, and stagger around the streets of British cities and towns in a booze-fuelled orgy of tattooed promiscuity and violence that shocks and horrifies the rest of the civilised world.

They do not understand that their own world is rapidly changing. The last fifty years saw a peaceful and relentless rise in prosperity, but that is now over. Where once there were ten workers to every retiree the ratio will soon be only two-to-one. Their future is therefore bankrupt. There will be no pensions when they are old. They may well have to work until they drop, and already there is talk of raising the retirement age to seventy. They are the lost generation, and these poor, deluded, Socialist-brainwashed children do not even know it.

Immigrants in Birmingham

The Newborn: What sort of country will they inherit? In 2050 a person born today will be only 39 years old, but he will find himself nearing a racial minority status in his own homeland. In 1950 whites made up 25% of the global population. Today they number only 9%, and by 2050 a mere 5%. This might not otherwise have mattered greatly, but Britain makes up only 1% of the habitable land mass and 1% of the world population, and we have opened our doors to the demographically explosive Third World.

The history of man is war, and wars are always fought along tribal and religious lines. The mass importation of Muslim tribes and Muslim religion into Britain can only guarantee future violence. Whether it can be contained in intra-country civil conflict is yet to be known, but it is likely that what will start out as a carbon copy of the recent Yugoslav conflict must only and logically lead to World War III.

The Christians: Although the majority of the British identify themselves as Christian, our Socialist ruling class have no time for such an outdated and oppressive ideology. As Tony Blair so memorably stated: “We don’t do God” — a view shared by the unelected Socialist dictators within the European Union who refuse to recognise the influence of Christianity in the cultural formation of Europe.

Christians are persecuted and vilified in Britain, be they nurses who wish to wear a cross to work, hotel owners who would rather not let homosexuals practice sodomy on their freshly laundered linen, or people who fail to recognise the immersion of a figure of Jesus Christ in a vat of urine is an edgy expression of “conceptually challenging” art. In addition, the blasphemy laws were repealed by the last Labour government because they specifically related to Christianity and were therefore deemed “discriminatory.”

Alexander Solzhenitsyn stated that “To destroy a people, you must first sever their roots.” This is exactly why Christianity is under attack in Britain. Just as Communist countries feared a moral alternative to the godless and immoral religion of Socialism, so our home-grown Socialist rulers follow suit.

Religious Education in schools which previously centred on Christianity is now devoted to Multi-Religious Studies. Conspiracy theorists are not exaggerating in the least when they suggest that mass immigration and Multiculturalism were not deployed for honourable reasons, but to specifically erode Christian Britain.

A good example of this is the BBC’s attitude towards Islam, which it suggests should be treated more sensitively than Christianity. And whilst Islam is promoted as a female-friendly religion of tolerance and compassion, Christianity is obscenely portrayed as an ideology of racism, imperialism and murder. This is so perverse and abnormal one can only assume that our Socialist rulers have declared all-out war against Christianity — as indeed they have.

The Middle Class: When Vaclav Havel assumed the Presidency of Czechoslovakia in 1989, he stated that one of the most important jobs to be undertaken was the rebuilding of the middle class, which had been decimated by the Communists.

The values and morals of the middle classes are the backbone of a democratic Nation State. This is why the Communists set out to eradicate them, and this is exactly why British Socialists have done the same. The “bourgeoisie” have been subjected to vilification for the last fifty years, with the attack against them led — rather ironically — by the middle-class intelligentsia within the BBC and the Educational Authorities,

The middle class is a bulwark against state oppression, and so had to be cleansed. Elitism, independence, Christianity and morality are the enemies of the Socialists. One of the more obvious manifestations of Socialism’s enormous success in this field concerns accents. It is very rare today to find a well spoken Englishman under the age of fifty. Class warfare has won, and the traditional middle classes are out of the loop. If one wishes to work in state media or education, one must adopt an Estuary English accent à la Jamie Oliver. We are all working class now.

The Working Class: The Labour Party was originally formed to protect the interests of the working class, so it is more than a little bizarre that the worst damage wreaked upon the very people who make up their core vote was perpetrated by the Socialists within the Labour Party itself.

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s the Trades Union Movement set out to systematically dismantle the manufacturing and industrial base of Britain. The Union leaders who called for more-or-less permanent industrial action were to a man Communists, all taking their orders from their comrades in Moscow. Although Margaret Thatcher and the Conservative Party foolishly completed what the Socialists had started, it is unarguable that the extinction of Britain’s shipbuilding and automotive industries was instigated by the Socialist traitors within the Labour Party.

But this pales into insignificance when compared to the damage inflicted upon the working class by the last Labour government. Their policy of mass immigration and multiculturalism has primarily affected the working class, who find themselves in direct competition with imported third-worlders for territory, education, housing and jobs.

The champagne-socialists who deliberately set out to transform traditional Britain have the financial means necessary to live as far away as possible from the multicultural hell-holes they have deliberately created, the means to educate their children in schools where English remains the first language, and the means to ensure that neither they nor their children ever fall victim to the endemic crime and violence so prevalent in Socialism’s disgracefully manufactured “diverse” communities.

The white working class are not so fortunate. What the Socialists have done to them amounts to the biggest betrayal in the history of this country.

The Immigrants: It is with great sadness that I compare the young blacks in Britain today with their grandparents. The rap-addicted, dope-smoking, unemployable and violent young blacks we see around us bear little resemblance to the well dressed men and women aboard the MV Empire Windrush, which docked at Tilbury in 1948.

They too have been betrayed. Encouraged to retain their culture rather than assimilate, they have been similarly let down by terrible inner-city schooling that refuses to equip them with the skills necessary to live decent and rewarding lives in a capitalist liberal democracy, because to educate them sufficiently is apparently racist.

This is deliberate, of course. Educated, assimilated immigrants are of little use to the Socialists, as so succinctly explained by education “expert” Professor Chris Mullard CBE, who had the following to say with regard to the non-education of black children:

“Already we have started to rebel, to kick out against our jailers…As more black Britons leave school disgruntled, as more black Britons discard their yoke of humility, the ultimate confrontation will become clearer…Blacks will fight with pressure, leaflets, campaigns, demonstrations, fists and scorching resentment which, when peaceful means fail, will explode into street fighting, urban guerrilla warfare, looting, burning and rioting.”

A great evil has been perpetrated upon coloured immigrants by the Socialists, who view them as mere pawns to be used in their fight against the capitalist and Christian West. Professor Mullard is a Communist who infiltrated the British Educational Authorities, and was subsequently, and unsurprisingly, knighted by the treacherous Labour government.

I have used defined groups of peoples and classes to show how we have been betrayed, but we can add some further minority groups who are absolutely essential in allowing the continuation of a liberal democracy and who were therefore earmarked for Socialist re-education or destruction — the traditional family, fathers, non-feminist housewives and mothers, and the apolitical police, judiciary and civil service.

There are a very small number of people who have not been betrayed. The baby-boomer liberal intelligentsia have done very well out of the slow-motion Socialist revolution that has destroyed Britain, as have the super-rich, the politicians and the bankers, who now look to retain their gargantuan bonuses whilst simultaneously redirecting their debts onto the shoulders of the taxpayer.

But at the top of the pile sits Islam. Imported and appeased by politicians of all parties, Islam is the real winner here and is promoted as the religion of peace when it is clearly no such thing. Polygamy laws are ignored in order that Muslims may demographically destroy us, laws are introduced to curtail any criticism on pain of exhibiting “Islamophobia”, and money is directed toward them in order that they need not work to house their multiple wives and children even as they plan to overthrow us.

The rest of us, however — the war veterans, the elderly, the young, the new-born, the indigenous population, the non-Islamic immigrants, the middle-class, the working-class and the Christians — have been betrayed in our entirety.

At the risk of repeating myself, this is totally unacceptable and totally unsustainable. Liberalism’s useful idiots need to be made aware of the error of their ideology, whilst the hard-core Socialist Left must be made to understand that one day, hopefully in the not too distant future, they will be tried before People’s Courts immediately after the reintroduction of the death penalty for treason.

If Britain is to survive the coming decades as a peaceful democracy, then we need to have a counter-revolution of the mind and a counter-revolutionary political party to effect radical change. No viable party currently exists in Britain, but to end this depressing article on a note of optimism, this matter is actively being addressed by a group of people, amongst whom I am proud to include myself.

I feel totally helpless. No one around me seems to even think about the kind of danger we are in. Britons are still high on alcohol and self indulgence, without realising that the politicians have sold us out.

God help UK, Europe and USA !!

Seeing what is happening to Europe is disheartening beyond words. Sometimes I'm rendered speechless.

Dear Paul,

Reading this article just before going to bed is not what I fancy. It is depressing and breaks my heart. But I thank you Sir for being so clear and honest in your thoughts. We need more of such articles to wake up the sleepy masses. You are an inspiration.

I for one have started my protest against Islam. I believe non voilence. But I will hit them where it hurts the most. "Hit their pockets". I have boycotted buying anything from any muslim shop / restaurant / business.

I suggest that more people can follow.

andy said...

While Mr Westons analysis is bang on about the historical aspects,I`m more optimistic about the future than I was 5 years ago,people seem to be waking up to the reality of the betrayal of our people and the reasons behind it in ever increasing numbers,the only downside is that to remedy the situation may take some considerable violence.

Hesperado said...

I agree with andy; and I would add, I don't share the dark alienation from our authorities which Weston and many others here tend to indulge in. Yes, some tiny minority of Leftists are evil, but not nearly in numbers or influence sufficient to explain the mainstream dominance of PC MC -- which depends on masses of relatively good, decent, intelligent people of various myriad points on the sociological spectrum (far more diverse than the quaintly archaic "Elites-Commoners" polarization meme would have it); and which is the sole reason why all this sh*t is being enabled throughout the West and has been gaining ground for the past 50 years.

Dymphna said...

Andy--

It's been 3+ years since Pajamas Media pushed us into the outer darkness because a Brit was brave enough to describe what might happen.

The folks at PJM confused themselves, seeing El Ingles' descriptive propositions as prescriptive solutions. The MC/PC mind melt was so complete they simply couldn't differentiate.


Back then the Baron said:

why have we been cast into the Outer Darkness?

As most of you know, El Inglés took a hard-eyed look at the situation in Europe, and his careful analysis concluded that if present trends continue, a breakdown of civil authority is likely to occur, resulting in what he called a discontinuity.

In mathematical terms, a discontinuity is a point on a curve at which all the derivatives (differentials taken to the nth level) cannot be defined. The curve is termed “discontinuous” at that point, and any further behavior in that direction is unpredictable...
[...]
El Inglés’ analysis led to the conclusion that much of Europe is inevitably facing a socio-political singularity due to the soft totalitarian superstate known as the EU, the dangerous ideology of Multiculturalism, and the presence of large numbers of unassimilated Muslim immigrants.

On the other side of that singularity, events are inherently unpredictable — ...


El Inglés described & analyzed. PJM freaked; it understood Hollywood’s rule -- i.e., some words were forbidden, no matter their context.

They've grown up since then. Material on their site today is far edgier than anything El Inglés said in 2008.

I make this point because what you posted couldn't have been said back then. But now your regretful pronouncement can pass muster without raising an eyebrow.

I guess you proved your point! There is more hope because the language is loosening.

@ Hesperado--

Perhaps you don't share their particular dysphoria. However, there is a long trail of evidence behind you, in this blog, of a tendency toward "dark alienation" re your own specific themes.

Same war, different battles, Hesperado.

Mr. Weston's lucid analysis of what he sees in his country certainly reflects the view of many, many others. So many that it is at times heartbreaking.

To decide that ppl like Sameer and Weston are "indulging" themselves sounds, at best, unkind. They live there, they witness the daily degradation, they live with a clear memory of their country when it was a very different place.

NOTE: In future, please find a real word instead of merely sticking an asterisk into a scatological commonplace. I'm leaving this one stand, but it's the last one. In case you haven't noticed, these words seem to breed in the threads and pretty soon we're up to our knees in sloshy effluvia.

True, it's a bit of work to polish & then brandish a larger word, but it's a good example for our homeschoolers. They need to see that arguments can be robust without resorting to terms like the one you used here.

More civility. pls.

Baron Bodissey said...

Kevin Stroup --

Deadpan irony doesn't always work. Some people can't detect irony, and they might get the wrong idea.

Heck, even I wasn't certain you were being ironic. And I've been reading your comments here for quite a while.

cumpa_29 said...

Hesperado

I think the masses will end up following whatever ideology promises peace, order, and food on the table. When the economy collapses, which it almost certainly will, people will follow any devil with a silver tongue. It has happened before, and it will no doubt happen again.

God help us all.

Hesperado said...

Speaking of crossing lines: a blog owner warning a reader and commenter that the phrase "tends to indulge in" (itself set in an entirely reasonably mature and unremarkably intelligent comment) is somehow bordering on incivility, crosses the line for me.

My search for a normal, healthy, non-dysfunctional discussion venue revolving around the problem of Islam on this great Internet apparently continues.

Baron Bodissey said...

Hesperado --

You seem to have forgotten that tone makes a difference.

Disrespect, contempt, ridicule -- all of these can be conveyed by the tone of discourse, even while one's words and arguments remain superficially logical and reasonable.

Furthermore, your assertion about what others "indulge in" was never a logical argument, since neither you nor those with whom you disagree can demonstrate the percentage of our political leaders that are malign or have evil intent. Such matters are not knowable, at least not at this historical moment.

You assert that the percentage is small; others assert that it is large. Assertions are not proof.

Proof of such matters would be very difficult to obtain, so what you say on this topic and what others say must of necessity remain speculative.

In a word, what you say is your opinion, and not demonstrable fact. The same is true for what Paul Weston says.

Finally, given that he lives in England and you do not, his opinion carries greater weight than yours.

@Sameer,

I have been urging people to "boycott Islam" for years.

People are finally beginning to listen.

@Hesperado,
Instead of getting into emotional arguments with the good people at GoV, I suggest that you would be doing more good if you were writing more blog posts of your own. You have a role in breaking the "mainstream dominance of PC MC -- which depends on masses of relatively good, decent, intelligent people of various myriad points on the sociological spectrum."

Indeed it does. Those are the people we need to reach.

They turn to drink and drugs in the moral and spiritual vacuum built for them by the Socialist Left, and stagger around the streets of British cities and towns in a booze-fuelled orgy of tattooed promiscuity and violence that shocks and horrifies the rest of the civilised world.

All of which, knowingly or not, only tends to lend even greater respectability to Islam's ostensibly good points of temperance, sexual restraint and care for elders.

Hidden behind that quasi-civilized façade is the ravening beast of jihad which so many continue to disregard at their own peril. Meanwhile, Britain's feckless youth manage to make Islam's outward appearances look relatively benign; a recipe for disaster.

The mass importation of Muslim tribes and Muslim religion into Britain can only guarantee future violence. Whether it can be contained in intra-country civil conflict is yet to be known, but it is likely that what will start out as a carbon copy of the recent Yugoslav conflict must only and logically lead to World War III.

Islam's compulsory jihad already has "unhappy ending" written all over it in the form of nuclear powers like Russia, China and India that will not flinch at incinerating the MME (Muslim Middle East), the moment it ceases to serve any further use or simply becomes too much trouble to let be.

Britain and Europe's abject refusal to recognize this elemental fact only guarantees that the conflict, when it finally does come, will merely be worse by orders of magnitude.

The middle class is a bulwark against state oppression, and so had to be cleansed.

As is happening in America with equal vigor and determination.

It is very rare today to find a well spoken Englishman under the age of fifty.

You can almost sense George Orwell nodding his head from the grave. Demolish language and, soon enough, the thoughts that depend upon such vocabulary will simply disappear altogether.

The champagne-socialists who deliberately set out to transform traditional Britain have the financial means necessary to live as far away as possible from the multicultural hell-holes they have deliberately created, the means to educate their children in schools where English remains the first language, and the means to ensure that neither they nor their children ever fall victim to the endemic crime and violence so prevalent in Socialism’s disgracefully manufactured “diverse” communities.

As middle class rage reaches the boiling stage, look for this last point to begin changing in an abrupt manner. The kith and kin of these "Champagne Socialist" traitors will not all be bundled about in armored limousines. They will become targets, be it for rampaging jihadis or disgruntled Brits.

A great evil has been perpetrated upon coloured immigrants by the Socialists, who view them as mere pawns to be used in their fight against the capitalist and Christian West.

The same thing is happening here in America. Politicians of all stripes have realized that horizontal class warfare is the best way to ward off vertical class warfare which they so tremulously fear.

… the super-rich, the politicians and the bankers, who now look to retain their gargantuan bonuses whilst simultaneously redirecting their debts onto the shoulders of the taxpayer.

Ditto America.

Liberalism’s useful idiots need to be made aware of the error of their ideology, whilst the hard-core Socialist Left must be made to understand that one day, hopefully in the not too distant future, they will be tried before People’s Courts immediately after the reintroduction of the death penalty for treason. [emphasis added]

How refreshing to hear of such sentiments coming from a too-often smug anti-death penalty Europe. Author! Author!

"If Britain is to survive the coming decades as a peaceful democracy, then we need to have a counter-revolution of the mind and a counter-revolutionary political party to effect radical change. No viable party currently exists in Britain,"

Whilst agreeing with Pauls' analysis, I must disagree with the sentiments as expressed above.

His analysis chimes in fully with what the BNP and to some extent what the EDL have been saying for years.

You may not like Nationalism but PW seems to be championing it.

It is no coincidence that the rise of Nationalism is taking place all over Europe at a time when analysts such as Paul are asking for a counter-revolutionary movement.

Well the counter-revolutionaries are here and will become a growing force in British and European politics in the coming period.

It appears to me that most anti-Jihad bloggers regard Nationalism as some sort perversion and seek an alternative to it.

Well we tried socialism, communism, liberalism, conservatism and mixtures of all of them.

Now look at the state we find ourselves in.

If these problems are to be addressed then it neccesitates peoples taking their countries back from the elements that are destroying it.

The only party I have come across that has the programmes and determination to do this is the BNP.

Unless of course you have an alternative.

And you don't.

There are 2 islamic girls schools and 3 mosques within a 5 minute stroll from my front door.
Batting off muslim advances, or abuse is a DAILY occurance for young female members of my family and their friends.
Submitters to the master religion are confident enough that their claims to territories in England won't see them rounded up for sedition, while native anti mosque protesters are charged with and prosecuted for 'racism'!
Imported and homegrown grubs gnaw away at the fabric of our society. Social glue is relentlessly loosened.
Our industrial base has been exported. We have a destroyed economy. A fifth of school leavers are illiterate and inumerate. We have to compete with the rest of Europe and the 3rd world for scarce jobs.
All this enabled by unspeakably vile, treasonous, treacherous scum, who belitle and mock our heritage, who fill the heads of the young, not with history but with ficticious guilt trips.
And the little ones in my family and the ones yet to be; what is in store for them?
More of this slide into hell!
There are a lot of people in the UK that recognise the historic and continuing treason done to us. The class of Gramscian politicos, opinion formers and cultural vandals in our town halls and ministries, quangos and media etc should all be made to pay.
Hesperado, you bet we feel dark about it!

Sagunto said...

Hesperado -

Once again, your promotion of the PC/MC thesis comes with a line of reasoning that borders on a de facto defence of our current political establishment. Look, I am also not a fan of the "greedy politicians" meme, for if greed really were that dominant a factor, we'd be in a permanent economic crisis instead of it appearing in "business cycles" (In an earlier response, I pointed towards the elephant in the room here).

Your basic assertion is that the "elites" (for want of a better word) are, indeed, well-intended, but that this in essence is not really a bad thing, only when it leads us all to totally mislead ourselves about the evil and violent nature of Islam. You seem determined to believe that if it weren't for Islam to have become part of the equation, our welfare state system is basically a good thing, and that those who argue otherwise are doom-mongering conspirationalists.
I don't mind your tone that much, but I'm not sure whether this particular argument does the PC/MC thesis any good, and frankly speaking, I rather doubt it. For one thing, I think it is not germane to a sensible discussion to depict those who question some of your assertions as alienated pessimists who either think of common Westerners as sheep or of politicians as conspiring evil-doers.
Moreover if the situation we are in (and I'm thinking of Amsterdam and other European cities, where we are living the actual islamization that sometimes seems rather abstract for you), if this situation has been brought about by well-intended, (too) good natured people, then our predicament is even darker than the "polarization meme" and the evil politico's would have it.

Kind regs from Amsterdam,
Sag.

If you want to boycott islam you have to be vigilant. Most of the meat in our supermarkets is now halal and an insider from DEFRA has said that the UK will eventually go 100% halal slaughter. Basically it's cheaper, because their standards are lower and supermarkets like the word "cheap". Every time you purchase something halal you are paying an islamic tax that goes exactly where? I asked our local butcher how his "local" meat was slaughtered and his answer was, "it's very similar to halal but it is pre-stunned" - this is allowed by some muslims as it is only a low voltage electric shock that makes the animal easier to manage when they cut it's throat. Islam is eating into our lives at a rate of knots and we are called the infamous word "racist" if we dare speak out against it. I have broad shoulders now and anyway how can you be racist towards an ideology? Time is not on our side but I cannot give up as I have grandchildren who will inherit this mess. I wish the BNP could stop the infighting and re-start the party asap and take on this battle, just as the other European nationalist parties are. Come on BNP you know this country is worth it !!!

Evil is in the eye of the beholder.

The business world is in the business of building wealth.

The political world is in the business of building power.

When the problem of the power brokers seeking to dictate to the wealth brokers, we end up with some interest cultural dilemmas.

But none of that makes it good or evil, unless we can divine their intent.

Is it Altruism they seek? Or is it truly Selfish agenda they pursue?

Or do we view it form a religions perspective wherein any effort of building wealth or gaining power is evil when it is done outside the constructs of a given Theological position?

We must be careful in that we all just might be pursuing an evil agenda, with the purest of intent, of course...

Paul

please keep us posted on developments regarding a new political movement for the UK. I agree there is currently absolutely nothing out there that is credible/viable. The BNP is absolutely toxic, and UKIP are just flag waving Tories as far as I can tell. Would love to get involved with a party without any baggage and that won't jeopardise my job/income etc.

Despite all of the betrayal, the UK is still in the grips of the identical lib/lab/con. Are they just stupid? Blind? Deaf? Where is the outrage? I don't see it anywhere.

Sagunto,

Nice job of summarizing Hesperado.

Laurence,

You're right but I think you should keep going further with that line of thought. Right, you should discuss intent if you want to talk "good and evil". Intent is the responsibility and the virtue or karma of the individual but then add to that that the intent is very likely not seen by the individual, who often sees only what is comfortable or preferred.

This self-excusing is entrained, previously known simply as immorality or lack of integrity, taught as a norm in our educational system and in media-filled homes, so that we have a mass lying problem. It it a utilitarian replacement of the overcoming of faults, it is a ripoff and cancellation of an ordered aspect of classical wisdom which necessarily included shame and movement to absolution.

The people voted to be taken care of, like children or invalids. Could this disaster have turned out any other way? They WILLINGLY gave up control over their own lives. As Thomas Jefferson noted, they traded freedom for security and now have neither freedom nor security. I feel no pity for the bulk of the voters in Great Britain. Gutless sheep all.

"As Tony Blair so memorably stated: “We don’t do God”"

That quote belongs to Alistair Campbell in the context of keeping Tony Blair from bringing the sky fairy into political discourse.

Nick said...

And of course Blair as we all know does 'do God'. Although not necessarily in a coherent, or even a good way.

Check this out.

Hello Birdy said...

I am and have been aware of all that was stated in that great warning piece. I am happy to say that I live on the West Coast of Canada an area that the crocodiles of Islam and of the communist hordes will eat last.

I am old and I am glad to be old. I have been privileged to live in the last half of the twentieth century in a free prosperous and peaceful country. In short, I have lived every human's dream.

It is pretty much ending now, but I would like to simply say thanks for all the brave warriors and peacemakers who lived and died so I and others like me could have a great life on earth during our time.

@Hello Birdy

How wonderfully put!

My parents sentiments exactly. They are now in their late 70s and fully appreciate the peaceful and prosperous lives they were so fortunate to live will not be similarly enjoyed by their grandchildren and great- grandchildren.

Life is horribly unfair. One throw of the dice meant being born Jewish in early 20th century Central Europe; African in Africa on pretty much on any date; Russian during Stalin's time - whilst another throw gave you citizenship of pretty much anywhere in the Capitalist West at the dawn of the age of mass prosperity and peace.

Because the liberals and socialists know so little (or care so little) about the horrors of history, they fail to realise that 20th century liberal democracies are just peaceful blips in a previously never ending history of war, poverty and dictatorship.

Which is now set to start all over again.

You are indeed fortunate to have lived your life at the time that you did.I envy you greatly and share your gratitude to those brave souls that made it possible.

Paul Weston: Because the liberals and socialists know so little (or care so little) about the horrors of history, they fail to realise that 20th century liberal democracies are just peaceful blips in a previously never ending history of war, poverty and dictatorship.

Perhaps even more incredible is that these same Liberals and Socialists steadfastly refuse to recognize how their own mismanaged economics and highly selective law enforcement are facilitating a prompt return to that more prevalent historic state of "war, poverty and dictatorship".

Few other things contribute more to this hamfisted mode of administration than Liberalism's inclination towards Magical Thinking™. It, alone, offers up one of the few explanations for how staggeringly purblind Liberals and Socialists continue to be regarding the direct implications of their actions. Consider:

War: By appeasing Islam, European and American political leadership is assuring that a far more kinetic and bloody confrontation will await us somewhere in the future. Whereas, were a program of targeted assassinations against Islam's aristocracy put in place right now, it could alter that entire outcome with very few respective deaths involved.

Poverty: The continued issuance of overly generous social benefits to immigrants who are complete and total misfits with respect to any future hope of assimilation or integration is seriously deteriorating the quality of life ― not just for indigenous populations of many European countries ― but, eventually, for those same immigrants as well.

Dictatorship: Two words, "European Union". This bevy of self-enriching and unelected bureaucrats are leading Europe straight into the very worst sort of Soviet-style Big Government solutions. Even more ironic is that these Liberals adamantly refuse to see that some of their most Socialist entities like the PIGS (Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain), are exactly the ones who will drag down the entire EU with the ripple effect of their successive failures.

"Irony" does not even begin to address this situation.

"Liberals and Socialists" are we not missing the conservative contribution to the multikulti and muscular liberal agenda in UK.
