Re: Watching western society fall apart has its better points

I wonder......

What will will happen when these mavens of virtue figure out that half the country thinks this stuff is funnier than reruns of Night Rider?

Does it count for advertisers when CNN can triple it's ratings when right-wingers spoof and mock it's apoplectic antics?

They would be horrified to be at one of our wild game cookouts.I would let them kiss the Blue crabs before they turn tasty in the Bay Seasoning boil.
Wonder what the dumb ass looks like that drew this law up?

Here's a couple comments that resonate.

I think America might survive if you can keep the left out because you still have a strong right wing and a robust constitution. Your big danger is the maturing generation who have been brainwashed by the left.
It is too late for Britain. We are totally subverted by the Marxists and there is no effective right wing in politics. The people themselves after decades of Socialist nannying and bullying have lost the will to defend themselves. We on the right are now revolutionaries and are being rooted out ; this will increase in intensity.
Old English people ,like me, I am in my seventies, can only reflect on how lovely our country once was in every way before this madness took hold in the 1960s which started apparently innocuously but was actually a vicious attack on everything decent.
Britain has a glorious past,look at the success of our kin where they have created new countries abroad. This is now being erased and blotted out by Marxist historians who admit that they want to write “a better “ history for Britain. The old British,now almost extinct ,were strong,fearless kind and generous, fair in their dealings and compassionate in victory although fierce in war and formidable adversaries. They were patriotic and Christian who believed in duty. They were poorer financially than people today but far richer in character. In a few years ,two decades at best ,look to see us no more because we will have run our course.

Leofwine, You are spot on. I am 70 also and lived through the 60's and while I was young enough not to fully understand what was going on I did have an uncomfortable feeling that we (in the US) were taking a wrong turn. Now that wrong turn we took is fully visible. Heartbreaking that our countries are throwing away our heritage with both hands. On the other hand, it is just change, even if it is for the worse. The Egyptians were probably thinking the same thing when the Hittites were swarming the countryside.

Re: Watching western society fall apart has its better points

"No government at any level, or at any price, can afford, on the crime side, the police necessary to assure our safety unless the overwhelming majority of us are guided by an inner, personal code of morality. And you will not get that inner, personal code of morality unless children are brought up in a family - a family that gives them the affection they seek, that makes them feel they belong, that guides them to the future, and that will build continuity in future generations. . . . the greatest inequality today is not inequality of wealth or income. It is the inequality between the child brought up in a loving, supportive family and one who has been denied that birthright."

- Lady Margaret Thatcher, from her speech,"The Moral Challenges for the Next Century," March 5, 1996.

Great quote, NS. The deep state has been intruding upon that family bond in many ways for many years, hence the issues we're seeing today.

And we see proof of it every single day.

This is why conservatives dont take liberals seriously or dont respect their views.College education isnt what it used to be apparently.
Mentally ill people demanding free stuff again.Should have aborted them or let their beloved Darwins law thin the weak and sick.

Surely. Somewhere there must be a fat lady. Warming up. Just about to start singing.

What a bizarre, unworkable culture these people are building. Courtesy of our tax dollars.

It could be defunded with the stroke of a pen. If anyone in charge cared enough to do it. They won't and they don't.

Crystal clear.

What's sad is the fact that the Church has almost entirely failed to equip its own families to resist the onslaught from state-worshiping idolatry, guvermunt controlled educashun, and Hollyweird moral absurdity.

The whole ethic that built and sustained civilization was lost; mostly in one generation.

It appears to me that the whole thing will have to be rebuilt from the ground up. Likely from under the rubble.

What's not being said is how our youth have been brought to this stage. Sure...it's easy to throw stones and blame it on flawed humans. The thing is that our gov't policies and the lack of parental upbringing has created this mess.
These alleged flawed young adults are the crops that have been sowed by corrupt malevolent forces with an agenda. The parents have failed them. They closed their eyes and allowed the state to raise/teach their children instead of protecting them from evil instead of handing their children off to the state that feeds them propaganda while going to work and being good worker bees for the corporations.
Sadly, this lack of thinking/understanding persists. Generations will be lost until the populace wakes up and stops acting like sheep and starts exercising their critical thinking skills.

Re: Watching western society fall apart has its better points

Chicago Boyz » Blog Archive » Tocqueville Foresaw This

In California, a bill has been introduced providing for a $1000 fine and a 6-month jail sentence for waiters and other restaurant staff offering plastic straws to customers without those straws being specifically requested by the customer.

Alexis de Tocqueville:

[The power of government] covers the surface of so*ciety with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power… does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, until each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and hard-working animals, of which the government is the shepherd.’

I disagree with Tocqueville about “such a power..does not tyrannize”, it certainly does tyrannize, and to a greater degree than many of the kings and emperors of the past. *Neither George III or Kaiser Wilhelm II ever thought to issue edicts about which pronouns people were allowed to use. *This California bill is in the true spirit of the totalitarianisms of the 20th century: *Naziism and Communism.

Speaking of totalitarianism, here’s Arthur Koestler, in his novel Darkness at Noon. *Rubashov, an Old Bolshevik who has been arrested by the Stalinist regime, is reflecting on his Communist beliefs and where they may have led him astray.

A short time ago , our leading agriculturist, B , was shot with*thirty of his collaborators because he maintained the opinion that*nitrate artificial manure was superior to potash. No. 1 is all for*potash; therefore B. and the thirty had to be liquidated as saboteurs. In a nationally centralized agriculture , the alternative of *nitrate or potash is of enormous importance: it can decide the*issue of the next war. If No. 1 was in the right, history will*absolve him, and the execution of the thirty-one men will be a*mere bagatelle. If he was wrong . . .

Isn’t this reminiscent of today’s leftists who say that climate change is a a matter of “enormous importance”, it can decide not something as relatively minor as “the issue of the next war” but the entire fate of the human race and hence, free speech on this matter must be suppressed?

Koestler’s Rubashov explains to himself that since the Revolution has overthrown all the rules of ‘cricket-morality’, the State is now ‘sailing without ballast’…and begins to see where this must inevitably lead:

to settle a difference of opinion, we*know only one argument: death, whether it is a matter of submarines, manure, or the Party line to be followed in Indo-China.*Our engineers work with the constant knowledge that an error*in calculation may take them to prison or the scaffold; the higher*officials in our administration ruin and destroy their subordinates,*because they know that they will be held responsible for the*slightest slip and be destroyed themselves; our poets settle*discussions on questions of style by denunciations to the Secret*Police, because the expressionists consider the naturalistic style*counter-revolutionary, and vice versa.

We are not yet at the point in America where people are sentenced to physical death for political deviations, but now on a regular basis people have their careers destroyed–sometimes a form of economic death–for such deviations.

And it is worth noting that the California bill in question was introduced not by some back-bencher no one has ever heard of, but by the Democratic Majority Leader of the California Assembly.
