‘THE riots in London and elsewhere in Britain are a backhanded tribute to the long-term intellectual torpor, moral cowardice, incompetence and careerist opportunism of the British political and intellectual class.’
Not quite sure why it’s the fault of anyone but the rioters, themselves. Reminds me of the old Monty Python one-liner: ‘It’s a fair cop, but society’s to blame.’
Can’r blame barbarians for being barbarians. Just don’texpect too much of them. Certainly don’t expect a sense of personal responsibility.
His point was that the British intellectual class, creator of the welfare state, has created these people by depriving them of all notion of faith, honor, truth, responsibility, love and loyalty, and by giving them massive handouts that do nothing but breed resentment.
Individual acts are obviously the fault of the individual, but so many people with no moral compass wouldn’t have been possible without the diligent work of intellectuals over the decades since WWII, year after year working to destroy British society and replace it with Animal Farm socialism.
