The Decline and Fall of Merrie England

“Remember you are an Englishman and have consequently won first prize in the lottery of life.” — Cecil Rhodes, British imperialist, 1910

“Almost the entire population of Britain looks as though it has let itself go.  Where once emotional restraint and self-control were admired, now it is emotional incontinence. It is no surprise that the British are despised around the world.” — Theodore Dalrymple, British author and psychiatrist, 2018

A new dystopia, rising from the ashes of World War II, now rears its ugly head and casts its shadow over England’s no longer “green and pleasant land”.

Merrie England! Was it ever that merry? A beautiful mirage! Maybe such a happy land never existed except in fantasy and in the perceptions of a privileged few blessed with all the felicities of the Good Life. And yet it has always existed in longing, where all utopias and earthly paradises germinate, as in the fevered imagination of William Blake who longed to build ‘Jerusalem’—Civitas Dei, or the City of God—in ‘England’s green and pleasant land’. Blake’s thoughts on this subject will be presented at the end of this article in one of the most beautiful and profoundly moving videos you are ever likely to see on the internet.

Meanwhile, let this literary gem by George Orwell on the three main races inhabiting the British Isles—the English, the Scots and the Irish—serve as a light-hearted introduction to this otherwise sombre article. “The English are not happy unless they are miserable, the Irish are not at peace unless they are at war, and the Scots are not at home unless they are abroad.”

The English, by common consensus, are the maddest of the bunch.

Once famous for their stiff-upper lip attitude to life, a characteristic still found among the educated upper classes and a conservative older generation, the British as a whole have undergone a startling change of national character in the last two decades. This is almost certainly due to the toxic influence of television, trashy Hollywood movies, and the mind-destroying excesses of the internet. The Brits have lost their self-confidence, their customary aplomb, their cheerful joie de vivre. Why? Because  they have become demoralised. Thoroughly demoralised.  “In every face”, to quote William Blake, you now see “marks of weakness, marks of woe”.

The narcissistic younger generation in particular, confident in their own omniscience, bear little resemblance to their parents and grandparents whom they tend to belittle as inferior beings with all the wrong ideas and attitudes.

The new Brits tend to be an emotional bunch. They get easily upset. They are outraged by six appalling things before breakfast. They insist on having their “safe spaces” in universities, for example, where no idea is allowed to penetrate that might possibly ruffle the tranquil waters of their intellectual somnolence. Dare to disagree with them even on some minor point and they will snarl at you for crossing their “boundaries”. Getting on their nerves is easy. All you have to do is exist.

British Liberal Prime Minister Herbert Asquith (1852–1928) once noted dryly, “Youth would be an ideal state if it came a little later in life.” The older I get, the more I appreciate the truth of the witty aphorism that youth is wasted on the young. Apropos of which, one is reminded of the old French adage that says it all: Si jeunesse savait, si vieillese pouvait. — “If youth but knew, if age but could.”

To attract attention nowadays, if the ads in fashion magazines are anything to go on, young men need to look darkly dangerous and young women anorexically deranged. The passport to peer approval is an air of decadence, if not degeneracy. The tragedy is that this immature attitude to life, previously confined to the young, has now infected the general population at large.

British psychiatrist Theodore Dalrymple has written much on this subject. He says:

All kinds of princely personages—footballers, rock stars, actors, actresses, and the like—display their inner turmoil. They parade it as beggars in some countries display their amputated stumps. They seem to be saying, ‘We too suffer, despite our wealth, privilege, and fairy-tale lives, which you falsely imagine to be enviable and without blemish.’

Sufferers and victims are turned into heroes merely on account of their suffering or victimisation, so that those celebrities who confess to misery, drug addiction, and alcoholism, are even more to be adulated than they already were.

It’s no longer safe for a young man to flirt with a female colleague at work. Simply looking at her with interest is now classified as a “microaggression” and could get him reported for “sexual harassment.” These uppity feminists keep telling everyone around them, much to the irritation of most intelligent men, how “oppressed” their grandmothers were and how “liberated” they are now.

No wonder misogyny and male suicide rates (see below) have shown a sharp increase in recent years, keeping pace with a rise in rampant feminism and soaring hemlines that leave little to the imagination.

I was relieved to find that Dalrymple’s views on Brexit coincided with my own. The fact that 17.4 million people voted in a referendum a little over two years ago to sever all ties with the European superstate is, according to Dalrymple, not only a triumph for democracy but also a victory of the wiser older generation over the Clueless Young. For it was the young who voted fatuously to remain tied to Europe’s apron strings, whereas it was the oldsters who voted overwhelmingly to escape the diktats of a sinister superstate that seeks to banish all borders between countries and turn Europe into a multicultural zoo.

Of these emotionally overwrought  young idealists who voted to remain in the EU and lost, Dalrymple has this to say:

Nearly half of the young people who voted to remain [in Europe] either wept, or felt close to weeping, afterwards. They felt that their future had been stolen from them by those who voted for Brexit. The fact that the youth unemployment rate in Belgium and France is 25%, in Portugal 30%, in Italy 39%, in Spain 45% and in Greece 49% did not seem to worry them. They were not of the youth-unemployment class.

The British are now a traumatised nation, Dalrymple believes. The evidence for this lies all around us. We only need to open our eyes. There is a moral relativism in the air. The result? Moral anarchy. Knifing people to death in the streets or throwing sulphuric acid in their faces, disfiguring them for life, has become the crime du jour. “A sense of lawlessness and fear is sweeping across Britain,” I read in the Daily Mail today. “Violence is soaring on the streets, police are grossly overstretched and the prison system is sliding into crisis.”

The country is certainly in deep trouble when its prisoners are marching through prison corridors, brandishing machetes and clubs, while the prison officers are cowering in their back offices behind chain-locked doors.

The country’s National Health Service (NHS) is in meltdown, with vast numbers of people being denied vital operations. People are going blind because there are not enough doctors to give them cataract operations. You have to be in agony before they give you a hip replacement or repair your hernia. So how are the politicians trying to solve this problem?  They are letting in more immigrants to add to the overload of patients requiring cataract operations, hip replacements and hernias! And how are these empowered pundits helping to solve the doctor shortage, a shortage entirely of their own making? They are importing more immigrant doctors who can barely speak the English language and are often medically incompetent, if not downright dangerous.

A report in today’s Daily Mail (24 August, 2018) carries the headline: ‘The UK streets where more than 3 in 4 babies have migrant mothers.” Apart from an enormous influx of immigrants from Eastern Europe, particularly from Poland and Romania, vast numbers of illegal immigrants and so-called “refugees” have swarmed in from Asia and Africa. The top five countries contributing to non-white immigration, in order of their high numbers, are Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Nigeria and Somalia. Between them, these now make up as much as 7.2 per cent of the British population.

In 2017, 28.4 per cent of births were born to mothers outside Britain. In some parts of Britain, it was as high as three children in four. It was the largest percentage since 1969. Campaigners said the statistics were a striking illustration of the way mass migration is changing the face of the country — and placing additional pressure on public services, including hospitals, schools and housing. The proportion has risen every year since 1990.

The floodgates were thrown open with a vengeance in 1997 when the mendacious war criminal Tony Blair became prime minister after a landslide victory. Blair was later to be rewarded for his services to multiculturalism by being awarded the prestigious Charlemagne Prize by the EU in 1999, a distinction he was to share with Angela Merkel who was to bag the same prize in 2008 and was to eclipse even Tony Blair in her misguided enthusiasm for mass immigration. This is not the place for expatiating on the crackpot theories of Count Coudenhove-Kalergi, the ideological godfather of the EU. Suffice to say that this Austro-Japanese promoter of miscegenation and mongrelisation through mass immigration was to be the first recipient of the Charlemagne Prize (in 1950), which is why it is also sometimes known as the Coudenhove-Kalergi Prize. Other recipients of this coveted prize, all politically correct promoters of multiculturalism, have been Henry Kissinger (1987), Bill Clinton (2000), Pope John Paul II (2004), Pope Francis (2016), and Emmanuel Macron (2017).

Which brings us back to the Brits, now in the process of fighting for a meaningful Brexit which would help to free them from the shackles of the European superstate, hellbent on flooding every European country with as many foreigners as possible. The correlation between high levels of immigration, especially from Third-World countries, and high and escalating levels of crime are now so blindingly obvious in Britain (and indeed elsewhere) that it’s hard to believe that this correlation is not only hotly denied by the authorities but denounced as “racist” if it should even be suggested. One has only to open the newspapers in Britain to see that not a day goes by when monstrous crimes are not being committed by criminals who are disproportionately of immigrant stock, mostly of African or Asian origin.

Two cases, both plucked from today’s Daily Mail, will amply illustrate this correlation. Coincidence? I don’t think so. Not unless such coincidences occur several times a week:

A mother-of-two stabbed by a knifeman targeting lone women at night was saved by her thick coat.

The victim, in her 60s, was walking home with fish and chips on Friday night when a stranger leapt out and knifed her in the stomach…. The terrified pensioner thought she had been punched as her thick clothing stopped the blade from plunging deeper into her stomach.

Yesterday her distraught daughter told how her mother might have been killed, but when her attacker went to stab her a second time, ‘she saw the glisten of the knife and just ran’.

Bleeding, she managed to stagger back to her home…. Police are linking the unprovoked attack to the stabbing of another single woman in the same area over the Bank Holiday weekend.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: “In both cases the suspect is described as a black male, aged around 40….”

(Abridged, see Terrified pensioner stabbed on way home)

The second case involves a bloodbath perpetrated by an out-of-control Afghan immigrant:

A mother and daughter were stabbed to death in a frenzied attack outside their home yesterday morning. Neighbours in the quiet suburban street initially thought their screams were the sound of foxes.

Last night police were hunting Janbaz Tarin, 21, for the murders of his former girlfriend Raneem Oudeh, 22, and her mother, Khaola Saleem, 49. The women were originally from Syria but have lived in the UK for at least 16 years. Tarin, who is originally from Afghanistan, worked in a corner shop.

Wendy Brown, 76, who lives nearby with her husband, said: “We have lived here for 40 years. Nothing like this has ever happened before. It is terrifying.”

(Abridged, see Manhunt after mum and daughter knifed to death)

What the native-born English lady is saying, if you read between the lines, is that 40 years ago, before the invasion of her country by outlanders from foreign parts, she was living in a relatively safe and crime-free country. No longer. Most of the criminals you hear of nowadays no longer have reassuringly familiar names the average white Brit can pronounce, like Winston Smith and John Brown. The five doctors mentioned in the paragraph below, for example, all convicted of sexually assaulting their White female patients, happen to be without exception of Asian origin. Coincidence? Most unlikely. Forty years ago, for a start, doctors groping and taking obscene photos of their female patients surreptitiously, were extremely rare events. Today they are all too common. And the names they bear are disproportionately foreign. The five doctors featured here—hardly a ringing endorsement of multiculturalism—all sport pretty weird names most Brits would get wrong in a spelling test: Dr Gosul Islam, Dr Rajeskumar Mehta, Dr Syed Bukhari, Dr Jaswant Rathore, and Dr Thair Altail.

The average older Brit now feels like a stranger in a strange land.

—   §   —

Dalrymple sees the British as finding refuge for their many sorrows in a cheerless hedonism, drinking themselves into a stupor or seeking consolation in the pleasures of the flesh. Quite a few male doctors, often of immigrant stock—see here, here, here, here, and here—have subjected their female patients to sexual abuse on an almost epic scale. The politicians are at it too, sexually harassing and groping their female staff in the House of Commons or watching pornography while supposedly engaged in high-powered affairs of state. These are the people running the country. Having lost control of their own impulses, they are nevertheless given licence to lord it over the lives of millions of their fellow citizens.

Is it any wonder the country is going to the dogs?

THEN (1958) . . . and NOW (2018)

—   §   —

The last two centuries have seen enormous technological progress but human nature is pretty much the same with one significant difference: a huge number of Brits are now committing suicide at the drop of a hat, especially young men. Suicide is now the biggest killer of men under 50, with 84 taking their own lives every week. Though not far behind in the suicide race, women are more likely than men to develop serious mental complaints and to be on medication of some kind. The number of people I notice talking to themselves in public places nowadays, twitching spasmodically or jerking their heads round from side to side like marionettes gone mad, is truly frightening.

The worst fate, according to Dalrymple, is to be an intelligent and sensitive person born into the British underclass. “The social pressure on you to fail is enormous,” he notes.  “I remember a girl who wanted to study French but ‘they said I was stupid because I was clever.’ Can you imagine growing up in that environment?” British education, he concludes gloomily, involves “people who come out of school knowing less than when they went in.”

The country’s cultural level has plummeted. The Brits are so degraded culturally they can’t even answer the telephone properly. They were once known for emotional constipation. Now it’s emotional incontinence.

Tolerance has become the new vice:

A society that tolerates everything is rather bad. Shouting, screaming, intimidation. We are prepared to tolerate public vomiting, but if you use the term “actress”, you are a sexist. A very well-educated lady told me public vomiting is all right: “They can clear it up.” This is how the élite thinks. They are so anxious not to seem narrow-minded or bigoted, or of being “judgmental”.

Dalrymple thinks it’s a puzzle as to why Britain has become more degraded than all other comparable countries.

He recounts an experience he had in Manchester, where he was staying at an hotel: “There was laughing and screaming outside at 1.30 in the morning. When I went out the next morning, I found that someone had been nearly murdered—he was in hospital, in a coma. You can’t tell the difference in England between people enjoying themselves and someone being murdered.”

Dalrymple’s comments quoted as an epigraph here are worth repeating. He notes ruefully, that “the entire population of Britain looks as though it has let itself go. Where once emotional restraint and self-control were admired, now it is emotional incontinence. It is as if they had undergone potty-training in reverse.” The person who controls himself is not only a figure of fun, but a traitor to his own best interests.  “It is no surprise,” Dalrymple concludes, “that the British are despised around the world.”

—   §   —

I hate to see the British described in these negative terms. In fact, I have to disagree that the Brits are “despised around the world.” If anything, the opposite is true. Most White Americans still regard their British ancestors with affection, admiring their accents and taking pride in the blood and soil of their forefathers. The blood that flows through their veins is, after all, the same blood that flowed through the veins of the Pilgrim Fathers and the veins of Shakespeare, Milton and Newton. Even India secretly mourned the demise of Pax Britannica when the raj came to an end and the burra sahib, weary of conquest, packed his bags and went back home.

There’s one virtue the Brits have always enjoyed in abundance, far more than any other country. This is noblesse oblige, an innate compassion for the underdog and a hatred of the bully. Their sense of honour, even now amid their desolation, has never left them. This virtue, needless to say, is more often to be found among the well-bred upper classes and is conspicuous by its absence among the nouveaux riches and the lower pushy types who are forced to live by their wits.

You will notice this, too, if you live long in Britain: the kindest people in the country are the older generation, especially its valiant brigade of dotty old ladies. Ever ready to drop their coins in a beggar’s bowl or buy a takeaway tea and sandwiches for some homeless bum, these charitable old dears are also most likely to fall victims and be fleeced alive by scam artists. Meanwhile, it’s the young and trendy who are the most heartless when it comes to derelicts. Never expect even a smile from them if ever you go begging, let alone a penny for your pains.

We need to cross the Atlantic to see what has happened to the Brits. The same malaise, or creeping soul sickness, that has afflicted their American cousins, has now fallen on the Brits with a vengeance. In the words of an American psychiatrist, this new plague is known as “shit-life syndrome”.

Let Guardian columnist Will Hutton explain:

US doctors [have] coined a phrase for this condition: “shit-life syndrome”. Poor working-age Americans of all races are locked in a cycle of poverty and neglect, amid wider affluence. They are ill educated and ill trained. The jobs available are drudge work paying the minimum wage, with minimal or no job security. They are trapped in poor neighbourhoods where the prospect of owning a home is a distant dream. There is little social housing, scant income support and contingent access to healthcare. Finding meaning in life is close to impossible.

Yet turn on the TV or visit a middle-class shopping mall, Hutton adds, and a very different and unattainable world presents itself. “Knowing that you are valueless, you resort to drugs, antidepressants and booze. You eat junk food and watch your ill-treated body balloon. It is not just poverty, but growing relative poverty in an era of rising inequality, with all its psychological side-effects, that is the killer.”

Many Americans are now in poor health. In physical pain. They are so depressed that they not only need antidepressants but opioid painkillers. To this they add alcohol, drinking themselves into a stupor. It’s a never-ending cycle of misery. “They have much to be depressed about,” Hutton glooms, adding the significant fact that these dead-enders all tend to be ardent Trump supporters. “They, and tens of millions like them teetering on the edge of the same condition, constitute Donald Trump’s electoral base.” Mostly marginalised and maladjusted White Americans, they live in hope that their president will one day wave a magic wand and rescue them from futility.

The parallels between America and Britain, Hutton tells us, have now become obvious:

Shit-life syndrome is not just a feature of a US city such as Baltimore, where the difference in life expectancy between the richer and poorer districts is as much as 20 years, it’s a feature of our cities, too. Within the London borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the difference in life expectancy between richest and poorest is 16 years. And the trends are deteriorating.

Too many of England’s towns are becoming crucibles of shit-life syndrome. They have become inward-looking, urban islands in which despair and despondency are too prevalent. Train and bus fares are so high that travelling within them has become prohibitively expensive. Stripped of power by the most centralised system in Europe, they are disempowered and sullen about the present and apprehensive of the future.

All this can and must change.

But nothing changes.

Two years after Brexit, Theresa May—famous for her catchphrase “Brexit means Brexit”—has yet to deliver on her promise to cut free from Europe and reclaim British sovereignty.

Having stabbed the British public in the back by openly aligning herself with the Europhile enemy in recent months, though affecting a need for fair play and a desire to give the British public what it voted for on 23 June 2016, Mrs May would be only too happy to see Brexit fail.

This is what democracy has come to mean in Britain: you are free to vote only if you vote correctly. Stalin was right when he said, “Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.”

    Just who is being described in this essay? ‘Britishness’ now means so much to so very many that it means almost nothing to anyone except those for whom it is a convenience, the right to live and work in England without being or liking the English and articles about ‘The British’ are therefore pointless.

      Richard B says:

      Theodore Dalrymple: He writes for that once kinda interesting and fairly entertaining webzine Takimag that’s now been thoroughly de-antisemitized. Or, de-“antisemitized.” Since antisemitism is, like Hate Speech and White Supemacy a made up category designed to gut free speech and shut us up.

      I used to read it around ten years ago, came back to it after the election and enjoyed the comment section, which worked kind of like an online community. It kept Takimag honest. That was the best part about it. Lots of the comments were smart and funny.

      I think that’s really why they did away with it. Can’t have Whites congregating and sharing truthful information about Jews and making them look bad (the truth always makes them look bad, hence the censorship).

      The other way around is fine, of course. It’s called The MSM. Only with them it’s all lies. Literally. It’s like they just can’t look life in the eye without squinting. They might have lots of power now, but they’re fundamentally weak. As anyone is who can’t live in reality. It’s this that will do them in. Of that I have no doubt.

      In any event, Takimag likes to justify what it did by, you guessed it, blaming the victim. But it’s just Jewish Supremacy’s desire to be
      1. Placed Above Criticism (proof they’re crazy)
      2. Loved Unconditionally (eew)
      3. Blindly Obeyed (never)
      that finally caught up with Takimag.

    It’s good to see an article by Lasha Darkmoon, especially after her extended absence from these premises. As she has done previously, at TOO and elsewhere, she here takes statistical generalities and employs carefully chosen particulars to highlight their monstrousness. She seems to have an intuitive understanding that there is no point to a resistance that consists merely of undifferentiated flailing about. One must comprehend the nature of the specific things of great worth that have been lost in order for any struggle to recover them to have a chance of success.

    Somewhat more peripherally, if she or another reader could identify the source of the photo at the top of the article—a movie still presumably—showing Roger Livesey and a familiar-looking actress to whom I can’t quite pin a name, I’d be most appreciative.

      Who is Lasha Darkmoon? Do you have any idea, Pierre? If you do, that’s more than most of us have. “She” bases the whole article on a Jew who writes under a stolen English name … and who loves the idea of planting “Jerusalem in England” as the “most beautiful and profoundly moving” ever. The mixed messages in this article are typical Darkmoon.

      Is it time for TOO to get another editor?

        Some context may be in order.
        The song/hymn was written on the basis of Joseph of Arimethea being Jesus’ uncle, and having traded often in Britain. There is speculation that Jesus, earlier in his life, had gone on with Joseph. Other narratives include Mary moving to Britain with Jesus’ brothers and sisters after his death, Joseph bringing the Holy Grail to england,and the Glastonbury thorn, which blooms at Christmas, taking root from Jesus’ staff brought to England by Joseph after his death. Therefore Jerusalem had come to England.

        As an aside, in the early 70s I heard Cornishmen called Phoenicians. There is a strong genetic link between the red haired Ramses and ancient Britons.

      Thank you both, GM and Trenchant. I haven’t seen Colonel Blimp in twenty-five years, but I recall it very fondly, despite the director’s plain intention of satirizing the old-fashioned patriotism combined with profound decency of the principal character, played beautifully by Livesey.

Sob is really not a bad word, and ‘rude’ is totally apt, so you are once again admitting your show preference for some over other commenters.

        Powell’s cinematic partner, Pressburger, was Jewish of course and the latter’s grandson is another film maker called Kevin MacDonald!

    • Armor
      Armor says:

      I find Dalrymple annoying. I read a piece he wrote for the City Journal in 2002, with the title “The Barbarians at the Gates of Paris” (2002). In it, he described the racial situation in France as if it was something specific to France. Besides, he argued for better assimilation of the Arab population as a way to save the country, as if he didn’t realize that the government kept importing them by the millions.

      Dalrymple used to be held in high esteem by anti-islamic blogs like Gates of Vienna, the kind of blogs that also used to like Mark Steyn. Those people like to pose as concerned sociologists as they talk about a specific Western European country, until they conclude with a chuckle that that country is done for : you can stick a fork in it. And they reach the same conclusion about every country.

      The Daily Stormer likes to do that too. And the “mainstream” media do something similar when they publish phony reports about “the rise of racism” in Chemnitz, in Orban’s Hungary, Salvini’s Italy, or any Western country where nationalists have won an election. They will claim there is a problem with that specific country.

      In fact, the problem is the same everywhere, whether it is in the USA, Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia… So, if you are reporting about the situation in Britain or France, you don’t need to sound like Dr Livingstone exploring an strange land. But Dalrymple does sound like that. For example, he will describe how “you can’t tell the difference in England between people enjoying themselves and someone being murdered”. And when he is not posing as a cynical ethnologist, or as a concerned observer of the decline of Western society, he likes to pour scorn on lower class people. I’m not surprised he would say the worst fate is to be an intelligent and sensitive person born into the British underclass.

      • Richard B
        Richard B says:

        Armor: Great comment. It’s important that we expose the pattern of their behavior in a way that’s simple and direct. Especially for folks that are new to all of this. The one part I would disagree with is this,
        “I’m not surprised he would say the worst fate is to be an intelligent and sensitive person born into the British underclass. The social pressure on you to fail is enormous.”

        This is undeniable. Lots of us have lived or living this. Goethe said pretty much the same thing in Conversations with Eckermann. It was a common concern by lots of committed social critics, from Carlyle, Macaulay, Ruskin in the 19th century, to C.S. Pierce, Dewey, James, Jacques Barzun and Ortega y Gasset in the 20th. It was a very real and normal concern about the danger to the individual and society posed by unrealized and unused potential. It was just taken for granted that they were talking about Whites and it was perfectly healthy and normal.

        Anyone of even minimal intelligence is aware of the dangers of unrealized and unused potential. It’s a recipe for madness. Which is exactly why they’re blocking all channels for Whites in every social-institution to realize and use that potential. They know no one has more of it than us. Of course, this makes their stategy of shutting us out. Proving in the process that their single-mindedness of purpose is both a strength and a weakness, since the result if the very dysfuntional and maladaptive societies they’re creating and that Darkmoon and Dalrymple discuss in this article.

        In fact, I’d say those two sentences quoted above were the best part of the article for two reasons,
        One, because it does speak to that concern, but also,
        Two, to see where Dalrymple and Darkmoon go with it (and Darkmoon quoting from The Guardian? The Guardian?).
        It’s a direction that’s kinda creepy and chilling (understandable in Dalrymple, and not that surprising with Darkmoon either. But odd and troubling to find it here at TOO).

        The comments go in the direction of that typical merciless contempt for Whites in general and poor Whites in particular. I was waiting for Darkmoon’s mask to fall and her to shout the word “Deplorables!” It was an odd read.

        btw, if Darkmoon isn’t a woman she’s certainly a feminized writer in that her analysis is mostly partial, distorted, shallow and inaccurate. Pretty much the MSM template today.

          @ Richard B

          You are obviously a gifted individual of extremely high intelligence, so I am all the more disappointed that you should conflate my opinions with those of Theodore Dalrymple or assume that I must be an enthusiastic supporter of the Guardian just because I quote from it on this particular occasion.

          For the record, I don’t approve of the Guardian one little bit and disagree with its leftist agenda completely. The last time I bought a copy of the paper was over 10 years ago. In regard to Dalrymple, I was unaware he was Jewish or that the name was a pseudonym. I quoted him here, true, but I also took pains to say that I disagreed with him completely in his negative and over-the-top attitude to the Brits. This is what I said:

          “It is no surprise,” Dalrymple concludes, “that the British are despised around the world.”

          I hate to see the British described in these negative terms. In fact, I have to disagree that the Brits are “despised around the world.” If anything, the opposite is true. Most White Americans still regard their British ancestors with affection, admiring their accents and taking pride in the blood and soil of their forefathers. The blood that flows through their veins is, after all, the same blood that flowed through the veins of the Pilgrim Fathers and the veins of Shakespeare, Milton and Newton. Even India secretly mourned the demise of Pax Britannica when the raj came to an end and the burra sahib, weary of conquest, packed his bags and went back home.

          I sincerely hope that what I have said here in praise of the British, especially the older generation and those in the country who value honour, decency and traditional values, did not offend you in any way. No offence was intended.

          As to my sex, I’d like to assure you that I am female and that I am known to Kevin MacDonald as “Ann”, though the passport spelling of my name is actually “Anne”. Anyone who doubts my sex has only to read my poems, which only a woman could have written.

          @ Pierre de Craon

          Many thanks for your kind words, Pierre. Much appreciated! I have no idea why I am hated so much by the likes of people like Carolyn Yeager. I wish I know what I had done to excite such irrational hatred, especially among women.

          Apropos of which, I think there is great truth in Nietzsche’s penetrating insight in ‘Thus Spake Zarathustra’: “Man is evil, but woman is base.”

          However low a man sinks, a woman can be expected to sink lower.

            Lasha Darkmoon,
            How low does one sink when writing an article for publication largely made up of quotes from a fairly well-known British psychiatrist without researching his background? Failing to discover basic facts about him that so many readers do know? And you are alleged to be a native English professor in a high-status English university.That seems to be going pretty low to me, in the form of disrespecting/cheating your readers.

            Your considering them to be stupid, and in addition lovers of sensationalism which I have always found on your website, plus your status as an absentee owner who recycles material clearly produced by others (revisionists and antisemites for example), would be the reason for my attitude of “irrational hatred” as you put it. (A very Jewish concept btw.)
            So now you know.

          “Anyone of even minimal intelligence is aware of the dangers of unrealized and unused potential. It’s a recipe for madness. Which is exactly why they’re blocking all channels for Whites in every social-institution”

          Thanks to ZOG, the White elites have been displaced, the White race as a whole is being replaced, and the lower class, under the wrong influence, is becoming coarser and less civilized. That is the main problem, and you should blame ZOG for that.

            Richard B says:

            I was referring to poverty, not the working-class. And I know I can survive it because I did. It took a few years after reading 206 from Neitzsche’s Daybreak til I finally left the country. But I did it. I couldn’t be more proud of who I am and in every way. (btw, 206 in Daybreak follows 205 for reasons more than numerical).

            Still, not everyone makes it. It’s heartbreaking to see an entire nation of buried children with no clue and even less hope. Makes one choke with rage. And it’s exactly our anger they want to squash. Because anger is what helps us stand up for ourselves, set boundaries and start revolutions.

            In connection to this, Gilad Aztmon once asked and answered the folowing question to a group of people that included Jews.

            Q: “Do you know what a Pogrom is?
            A: A Pogrom is when the Goy says to the Jew, “Enough!””

            In any event, those buried children (we might as well start calling them ours, because they are) deserve our concern and encouragement. And not just the children.

            Lots of them don’t just go through the whole anti-White thing. They go through the whole anti-them thing when abused, neglected and rejected by family. Who themselves are often projecting their own cluelessness, hopelessness and rage onto a designated family scapegoat.

            Anyway, if the child turned adult does survive they know a thing or two about the sense of identity and sense of value and how they’re intimately connected, how you can’t live without it and that it’s exactly this that Jews are attacking.

            They also learn how to say “Enough!”

            Ironically, as happened in my case, and not just mine, White families who have scapegoated a brother or sister are now watching their own children being scapegoated – by the entire world.

            Not surprisingly, many of them remain clueless, but still have hope. To the extent they remain clueless the hopelessness will come. But, if by some miracle they get a clue they’ll hope for something else. Maybe they’ll even find their way here at TOO. You’ve got to admit the thought does have its charms.

    Perhaps this whole ideal of creating “Jerusalem” in England’s green and pleasant land is the seed of all this despair. When Europe fixed its spiritual compass and vision upon Abrahamic gods from the Levant, it started down that road away from its very self and towards something entirely alien. How we have been broken and made to kneel in the slavish adoration of gods not our own. In the service of this non European, desert “Messiah”, we have heaped up our own funeral pyre. Abandoning our Faustian Promethean spirit in exchange for meekness, timidity, and an overly civilized nature that has stripped us of our very will to fight, if even the memory of such ability remained at all.

      However it happens, if it happens, I am confident it will not involve a tyrannical, murderous, heat-deranged Jew sand god, whose gross lack of judgement runs to naming the most obscenely usurious, deceitful, hypocritical, vicious, destructive, self-seeking, racist parasite filth on earth as the “Chosen” of mankind.

      “It is a pernicious and perhaps fatal error, characteristic of our race, to assume that other races have approximately the same nature as ours, so that argument against a conscious and concerted conspiracy must be discarded. The alternative to that theory, so far as I can see, can be only an hypothesis that the Jews are directed by instinct, at least to a large extent. They may represent a complex and highly advanced form of the biological phenomenon of which a simple manifestation is seen in mammals that hunt in packs or bands. As is well known, wolves and African wild dogs, for example, hunt in organized packs and stalk and bring down their game by a kind of strategy that is carried out by the pack as a unit but with each individual in it having a definite function and adapting himself to the needs of a specific situation. This activity we attribute to instincts operating entirely below the level of real consciousness.”

      Thanks for the heretical link. I used to read those guys. Aren’t they the ones (((they))) threw in jail, in LA?! Evil. Just evil. Where are they now? They definitely wanted to make an example out of them.

      As Neitzsche pointed out in his masterful On The Genealogy of Morals, in Essay One, Aphorism Seven, “with the Jews there begins the slave revolt in morality, which as a history of 2,000 years behind it and which we no longer see because it – has been victorious.”

      So it takes time for many of us to come to see this and begin to turn our lives around. It isn’t easy. I was reminded of this reading this heretical article after not having read anything of theirs in ten years. It’s like getting a snap shot of me then and now. Big difference. I feel free today from the corrosive, toxic influence of Jewish Supremacy. And more proud to be White and Western than ever before.

      That’s why I’m always suspicous of Whites who jump on their own over their level of wokeness (to use that cornball expression of the young). It just goes to show that, though WN is necessary, it’s not necessarily a hot bed of mental health. We get all kinds. But they’re our kind. So, we need to stick together. Not sure if we’re even capable of it. If we were Jewish Supemacy would’ve never seen the light of day, let alone become so victorious that it’s hard for many to even see (and then there are those who see and just don’t care).

      In fact, one of the more depressing features of KM’s CoC, is the lack of White In-Group strategy. Anyway, however this turns out JS, PC and Identity Politics have never succeeded in making me hate myself for who I am. Just the opposite. It’s been a kind of confirmation that we offered the world the best they’re ever going to get. And for that we have nothing to be ashamed of and everything to be proud of (as long as we’re contributing in one way or another).

      Anyway, thanks again for the link.

      Just spotted this from the heretical article:
      It’s a quote from Dalrymple from 2005 (referring to Muslims, but, well, TOO readers will get what one could infer from it).

      “a very small number, of course, but it does not take large numbers of such people to effect a huge change in a country’s atmosphere. And the omens for the emergence of more of them are not good.”

      Did you get that? Says it all. This is why they’ve gone Full Spectrum Dominance in regard to censorship, and not just censorship.

      Because Jewish Supremacy is all about itself and Jews have become all powerful, the world in general, and Whites in particular, are rapidly being placed under the iron paw of Jewish Supremacy. A Supremacy whose ultimate goal is to turn us all into slaves who hate themselves while serving a contemptuous, ungrateful, predatory and parasitic master whose world view is shallow, narrow and corrupt.

      Only a dog could could go on living like that. I don’t fancy myself as a dog.

      Either way, I think this model is simply unsustainable and won’t last. In fact, the cracks have already begun to show. Still, the above quote is not only encouraging, or should be, but also shows that their paranoia and persecution mania makes it impossible for them to rule over anyone with the security they long for. This is not over by a long shot.

    Did you know that there were Black Hebrews? We all know about the Turkmen/Ashkenazi that converted to Phariseism:

    Khazaria – from the word Qasar, with its Turkic root Qaz, meaning to roam – following the break-up of the western Turkish Steppe Empire. Then the country converted en masse to Judaism/Pharisaism, sometime between 740 and 920 AD, just so they could remain independent of the two competing empires of that time, Christianity and Islam.

    While the Ashkenazi are Turkmen, the Black Hebrews claim to be actual descendants of one of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.

    There is a fledgling community of the Black Hebrews in Southern Israel, many emigrated from Chicago and Harlem.

    The Black Hebrews of Israel are encouraging the Black Hebrew Diaspora (numbering 200,000 in Chicago alone) to return back to their Promised Land.

    This is something that desperately needs true Zionist funding.


    • RadicalCenter
      RadicalCenter says:

      Ashkenazis in the USA and the world today are, on average, at least 40% White European, often more than half.

      See the Jon Entine article for Genetic Literacy Project. It discusses a genetic study showing that Ashkenazim were on average EIGHTY PERCENT Italian through their maternal line. This is thought to reflect a surprisingly large number of Italian women (in the centuries of Roman times) marrying Jewish men (as an American proud of my Italian heritage, I wish I had been around to convince them NOT to do it, but that’s history).

      The study showed that Ashkenazim were overwhelmingly Semitic/Middle Eastern through their paternal line.

      This particular study didn’t break down other white european genetic influences in modern Ashkenazim, but we can anticipate that many Ashkenazim have a bit of Germanic or Slavic genetic background (most often German, Polish, or Russian)l or more than a bit. It’s not always just the german or Slavic names that got picked up by the Jews in their travels.

      Anyway, just the documented Italian genes alone make Ashkenazim typically at least forty percent European. So in recent centuries, Ashkenazim usually couldn’t be more than about half of ANYTHING nonEuropean. Is that non-Italian part often genetically Turkish? Shouldn’t be too hard to get solid evidence on that from comparing genetic tests, right?

    Please forgive me for picking on a minor point (in a good essay), but the examples given above are not a good way to illustrate the moral dissolution of the British; the crimes described above are entirely the work of a group that never has been and never will be a part of real Britain. This behavior is like the rising and falling of the tides, or the orbit of the moon. It is entirely detached from the moral cycles of British society.

    In addition, I don’t think quoting a Jew is out of bounds if the quote is true, especially if the point made is highly pertinent.

        “Mostly marginalised and maladjusted White Americans, they live in hope that their president will one day wave a magic wand and rescue them from futility.”

        Cold and creepy. It’s not the content so much, though that’s partly it, it’s the process, or in this case, tone of voice. Cold and indifferent to the suffering of “her” own in an article posted on a site dedicated to White Interests. Very strange.

    Reading about Western Man’s demise, is painful to consume. Obviously there’s a lot of truth in the author’s pen. Nevertheless, the English, now called Brits, are our brothers. Their misery and distress is dreadful for our hearts.

    A lot of people -most- take in the panorama of once-GB by the description from the guests invited into their living room (the Tube). It’s much different to drive by auto and see what’s now the UK. It’s awful. Regardless of any past or contemporary internal disputes we’ve had with the British, we have to have compassion due to the foreign carcinoma within the English body. Above all, the Anglos are part of our family. Their affliction is the result of politicians. Politicos fear a transnational network that has the greatest influence in MSM.

    In one’s youth much time was spent worrying about our English brothers. On more than a few occasions one would drive in the direction of England only to reflect and turn around. Today it would take a dire emergency for one to purchase a ticket to once-GB. In a way, London and the UK are similar to many of our American City States.

    When residing in Europe one eventually completely stopped traveling to London and or the city of Lights. These two cities reminded one of city states within the USA.

    A few years ago a friend of mine and her husband took their daughter to Paris. The hubby had been stationed there for one year. The pictures and commentary we received was more than irritating. There is no time to discuss the problem that occurred when they attempted to secure a decent classroom setting for their beloved child. The so called French educational system had evolved into something unspeakable. It’s one thing to look at a video on YouTube and it’s quite another to worry about the safety of a young daughter. Try shutting your eyes and putting yourself in their boots. Do that, and you’ll somewhat comprehend the success of TV monopolio indoktrynacja. Perhaps our only hope is if some populist head of state can find a way to break up the corporatist kleptocracies that have been pilfering moral thoughts from majority youth. If a Chief of State could break up info-monopolies presidents of other countries would follow suit. Think of Viktor Orban, Trump or Beata Szyklo.

    The author did not stray far from the autostrada of EuroMan’s Humpty Dumpty path. His food for thought was, indeed, difficult to swallow. He didn’t seem to have much love for the Anglos or Irish. Reminds one of Lloyd George’s hate for the Irish.

    The scenery can perhaps be summed up by referring to actuality in Amdom’s neighborhood. In over a dozen recent exploration motorcycle tours, from coast to coast, one could see the same deterioration within many American States that one had seen in the Third Worldization in Western Europe. Enlightened, prosperous, thriving cities, seen in the 1960s, had become darkened nests of crime, dangerous concrete jungles, directed by intellectually challenged primitive suits.

    It’s easy for a foreign Ruski, laboring in a think tank, to paint a picture of the crippled West. However, it’s completely different experiencing the heartbreaking destruction of EuroMan’s environments than it is from knowledge extracted off of manuscripts. The same applies to reading best selling book interpretations, looking at presstitude paintings, or “clarifications” delivered for TV intent.

      Thank you very much for posting my three versions of the very beautiful hymn, Jerusalem, part of my large collection of YouTube music that I’ve posted in various places over the years. I submitted them because I found the version provided in the article so dismally uninspiring, that I had to give readers a chance to see and hear it performed both more beautifully and more meaningfully.

      As for my posting only links, a partial explanation is that I was three days post-cataract surgery and not quite up to speed. However, it’s Day Four now, and, as you requested, I’ll express a few of my thoughts about the article. I’ll mention first, that after reading Darkmoon’s first appearance on TOO, I sent a private email to KM in which I stated that both the content and the writing were of a quality that made it unsuitable for posting at TOO – not up to what I saw as TOO’s standards. My first impression never changed, and that’s simply because Darkmoon, whoever he or she is, and I see things differently, or see different things.

      For example, I can’t imagine why the Colonel Blimp photo was selected – to represent what? – oh, I get it – “Merrie England” – but what has merriment to do with the catastrophic loss of the British Empire, with its myriad beauties of appearance, behaviors, customs, accomplishments, and aspirations, to say nothing of its genetic proximity to Germany and the Germans?

      My own taste for photos of films that incorporate themes relating to lost English morality, relationships and national attachment might include these: – Brief Encounter Odd Man Out – The Sundowners King and I Deborah An Affair to Remember

      Titles, images, and music may seem beside the point when assessing the value of an article, but they are presumably selected to represent an article’s content and to induce or enchance the reader’s experience of the text itself. So far, I have not gone beyond (responsible) skimming. . . because what I see is an article consisting of a few very familiar themes and scenarios strung together by way of copying-and-pasting. In other words, a hodgepodge, communicating nothing that I didn’t already know, nothing of real value. To me.
