Pretty bad when you have to move to France.
Sounds much like another country I know.
England is in the grips of Liberalism and this is just one of the results.
Advanced stage would be when a Blair is gone and a Mugabe takes over. Just a case of moving from "moderate" liberalism to the end product.
This is because Liberalism is social AIDS. Once entrenched, it removes a country's ability to resist more serious social diseases such as despotism.
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE comes to reality.
Of course if Mr Wareing had been armed and shot his attackers, they would have thrown him in prison - and for a lot longer than nine months!
Before you realize it, its too damn late to do anything short of revolution to change it.....it's a sad state of affairs - and it may move across the Atlantic.
There is an absence of any kind of idealism that is a necessary precondition of probity, so that bad faith prevails almost everywhere.
Excellent point. Without idealism, without the idea that there is something greater than our individual selves, without ideals to aspire to we sink to the cynicism and hopelessness that is symptomatic of leftism.
Excuse me, said the young man to the policeman, do you realize your horse is gay?Europe is decadent.
He was arrested and charged under the Public Order Act for having made a homophobic remark."
The Islamic imperialists, the Chinese oligarchy, the Marxist and sociopathic leaders of the Western Left, and all other enemies of Western Civilization are well aware of this.
The only people who don't seem to know this are the morons who compose the rank and file of the Left, but these morons are too stupid to comprehend anything. That's why they're Leftists.
The result when PC is taken to its (il)logical end.
But one does not feel the defects of a foreign country in quite the same lacerating way as the defects of ones native land; they are more an object of amused, detached interest than of personal despair.
I don't know, reading this filled me with despair, and I'm not even a Brit. Are they past the point of no return I wonder?
Brilliant. Beautifully written. There's nothing like a well-educated British writer. Those with the best educations in England have always been well educated indeed.
But perhaps that is no longer true. A sad business.
Chirac boasts of hedonism. In Britain and Ukraine that means drunkeness, as far as I can tell.
It's a shame too. My wife and I spent our honeymoon there and went several times after that. It's a fascinating and beautiful country, but it ain't worth my life.
Slight disagreement. If there were real justice, the attackers would have been dead.
Otherwise, a great article. Thanks for posting it.
We in America should bow our heads every day and thank God for giving our nation's founders the wisdom to write and include the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights. I realize that the Second Amendment was included primarily as a tool for armed revolution against a possible future tyrannical government, but it also comes in mighty handy for dealing with common street thugs as well.
If the Dems come back or the Pubs don't grow some cojones it will.
E.G. "I'm protesting Bush trampling on civil liberties" versus ignoring Islamic extremists that blow you up or put you under Sharia law.
