Nationalism

Quite often we hear how nationalism is dangerous. Bad. Wrong. It has negative connotations, and is associated with both the world wars. If you want to see how far the SJW poison has spread google nationalism. Negative images and Nazi flags abound. Yet nationalism is rising across the world. Brexit and Trump are two clear examples. Also, nationalist governments have been elected in Austria, Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic. Catalonia has a separatist movement that appears to be growing in strength. So is nationalism really that bad? And why is it on the rise?

A Look Back at History

Let us examine World War One. Surely the clearest case that shows nationalism is bad? Different countries, each with a notion of their superiority, squaring up to each other and being belligerent. Eventually it spilled over in to open war. But was it really nationalism? Most of the countries involved had some kind of Empire. Britain certainly did. France had overseas territories. Russia had a land empire, as did Austria Hungary. The Ottoman empire had held sway over the middle east, parts of North Africa and Europe. Germany had some colonies but badly wanted an empire. Britain was afraid of losing hers. Russia was always looking to expand, and draw in more Slavic peoples. The Ottomans wanted to win back territory, and vie for more land with Russia.

The Relevance of Christianity – Part One

The State of Affairs

According to the 2011 census, Christians make up 59.5% of the UK population. Those with no religion make up 25.7%. Then you have Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Judaism and Buddhism. Anglicans make up the majority of Christians, followed by Catholics like myself (I regard the current Pope as a cuck who should be removed from office). Church attendances have been falling, while Islam has been increasing. The media (we all know who) constantly assault the church and Christian faith. This was seen with the various hatchet jobs on Jacob Rees-Mogg for saying what he believed in. Nothing is sacred any longer, except Islam. People have fallen out of love with Christianity, and now turn to the internet for salvation. Men can become women, women can become men. It seems anyone can marry almost anything. We appear to be culturally cast adrift, and morals are breaking down all around us. Almost anything goes. The news no longer shocks. We have seen people die live on T.V. What more is there? For many, science is the new religion, the new God.

Where to even begin?  Coming up with one single descriptor for Owen Jones is nigh on impossible. Mr Jones is one of the most charismatic figures of the modern left and he is rarely, if ever, out of the news, off our screens or out of the spotlight. Writing about him from a completely unbiased and balanced perspective while at the same time pointing out some of his more glaring “inconsistencies” is nothing if not challenging, but let’s give it a go.

To some he is the “enfant terrible” of “socialism, a no nonsense sort of guy with an opinion on everything, and, when I say everything I mean, literally, everything. Over the last 10 years or so he has been extremely vocal on all manner of topics. He has a regular column in the Grauniad, which can be highly entertaining, he writes occasionally for other newspapers and periodicals and is also the author of several books. He is, as you might have guessed, a member of the ABBC revolving door club along with people of the calibre of Yasmin I’maliar Brown, Diane Abbott, Michael Heseltine, Chuka Umunna and others who, although they might have very important day jobs are ever eager to trouser the odd £500 of license payers hard earned to be given a platform to spout inane claptrap on a very regular basis.

Emigrate to a New Planet

Pttm, Going Postal

Stephen Hawking:  “Earth is a wonderful place, but it might not last forever.  Sooner or later we must look to the stars.”

I saw this article Humans-could-reach-Mars-in-ONE-HOUR  and it got me thinking.  Do we colonise other planets because of mass over-population or because we have to as our planet may become uninhabitable, or just because we can.

When Martin Met Asif Mohammed Hanif

When Martin Met Asif Mohammed Hanif: Martin Mezger, Going Postal

It’s mid 2002. I’m working on an interesting project, with a couple of good friends. I live in Hampshire, and part of the job is based at Stockley Park, near Heathrow. To arrive at 07h00, I have to get up much earlier than normal to drive up to the M4 and then on to Heathrow.

Driving in this early, the traffic isn’t too bad. Quite often when I get to site, there’s a chap with a beard but no ‘tash, whose job it is to man the parking barrier and direct non-pass holding visitors to allocated parking. One day I arrive late, having been held up in traffic; parking is tight, and he lets me park in the management’s reserved space. He seems polite and helpful. He often has a half smile on his face, as if he’s distracted by some private joke. He’s obviously Muslim.

My boss for this job is a Muslim, too. We are friends as well as colleagues. I’ve met his wife, his children, his mother and his brother and sister-in-law. He’s a bit younger than me, integrated, has strong views on 9/11 and against terrorism. He’s British.

When Martin Met Marcus

Martin Mezger, Going Postal
Marcus Fysh MP

I thought, having recently written about the need to engage with our elected representatives, that I should put it to the test, stress-test the concept so to speak, and meet my own Member of Parliament for a face- to-face discussion about that most contentious of issues, the one that in far too much of polite society and all of broadcast television, even now, barely dares to speak its name, other than in a whisper.

The “trigger” for this (and yes, I was “triggered”) was a tweet by PJW, decrying a recent proclamation by our beloved Home Secretary, Amber Rudd.

Part Three

This is the part of this little trilogy that I found the hardest to write, because it forces me (and thus you) to confront the possibility that we, as a nation and as aware, responsible individuals, will be unable to thwart the threat that Islam now poses.

If we fail to wake enough people up, we will assuredly go under; demography alone makes this an entirely inevitable outcome.

“Should I Stay Or Should I Go?” Martin Mezger for Going Postal

Martin Mezger, Going Postal

Part Two

While walking the dog this morning, I met one of my neighbours, walking with his black spaniel. This being the morning of the Prime Minister’s speech, we got chatting about politics.

He is eighty years old, and was one of a very small number of people in the village who put up a Conservative sign in support of our local MP, Marcus Fysh (Con-Leave). This gentleman is an old school Tory, the sort of conservative who holds what I would call uncompromising conservative views, views very close to my own, rather than the anaemic version of conservatism practiced by the current Tory line-up. He has lived his eighty years to the full, and is fascinating to talk with.

Part One

Right now, I have almost everything going for me. I am free of debt, I have good health, and I live in a small village in a very nice part of South Somerset, an area so agreeable that it merits a future GP “Postcard From” article.

It’s a good place to be: there’s an excellent local pub, another one on the hill for when ours is closed, and another one in the next village when I get bored with the first two. There’s loads of good walking to be had, a good thing as I have a dog who likes long walks. The land is very productive, with all forms of conventionally edible animal represented (including one of my favourites, the pig) together with a good variety of arable and fruit farming (including apples, for cider). One might accurately describe the area as being prosperous without being enriched.
