Rotherham: Holiness And Stuff British People Like

Alternative title. Rotherham: There Still Is No Such Thing As Cultural Marxism.

The Brits are a holy people. In fact, you will not find a holier people. Modern feminism emerged from Britain, spurred on by J.S. Mill. Universal rights. Poor laws. Tolerance. Equality. Individualism. The Magna Carta. No More Taxes, King John. Liberalism. Liberalism. Liberalism, again.

Britain was fertile soil for the development of natural rights, and although their philosophical roots precede John Locke and are expounded by the Salamanca School, the scholastics in Spain, the Spanish were not the sort of people for which natural rights were well-suited. The English Channel demarcated the Anglos from the Continentals.

Rights-talk in Spain died with the Scholastics, and it suffered much the same fate throughout the rest of continental Europe until much later, owing to the memetic dominance of the English. The phrase “the sun never sets in the British Empire” didn’t just apply to far-flung territories in the west or east, but rather described total ideological supremacy. The Spirit of Britain hovered over the waters of subdued colonies, and was welcomed in, if only for the natives to signal like a beacon to avoid being crushed.

The Spirit of Britain never disappeared. It has been subject to the logic of cladistics, creating anti-theistic religion but preserving cleanliness laws. Purity laws, too. Sanctification. Penance, or mandatory diversity/sensitivity training—whatever you will. To the modern Brit, Leviticus is for the stupid and blind. Quoting a verse from Leviticus is enough to show its absurdity—a self-evident truth is supposed to be grasped through the implicit rhetorical question: why X norm? Why the prohibition on X?

But instead of banning the weaving of multiple fabrics together, or expelling women from the camp for X amount of days, the Brits are actually far worse. Most Levitical norms actually serve useful and alternative purposes not visible to literalist dumbs. Modern British norms can’t compete. They do not even count as useless. They’re a deathwish. Self-immolation. Self-evisceration. Self-loathing.

The United Kingdom is still home to the holiest people on earth, only something else has captured their attention. Something else has captured the existent mechanisms of what one must do in order to be saved, to be holy. And the Brits will abide by it to the point of death. Lie back and think of England, but instead of increasing fertility rates, police officers prohibit fathers from rescuing their daughters from the Mohammedans. There is no mention of whether any fathers were arrested for returning with firearms.

The police were complicit. Social workers covered it up. For jobs, they said. For jobs?

But holiness exists to explain. Even in the most apparent circumstances, Brits and progressives writ large pat themselves on the back for burying the commonsensical. For faith. “Look at how much faith I have!” the progressive cries. “Look at how holy I am,” the progressive said, as he ignored minority violence and deviancy and depravity. Brits are progressive Pharisees, abiding by the letter of the law and trumpeting it around, hoping for praise.

A ring of abuse that has only now become public is indicative of a thousand more abuses similarly buried under the weight of pretentiousness, purity, propriety.

What is and what is not proper is such a British thing. Stuff British People Like. Brits would cut off their right hand if it were deemed the polite and proper thing to do. Losing a job is nothing compared to a hand, but listening to the pleas of the little girls and reporting Muslims is not the polite and proper thing to do.

What made Britain great is what makes it weak. What made it one of the mightiest powers and greatest civilizations the world has ever seen is what has reduced it to rapid decivilization.

In a sane world, the Muslims would be dragged out into the street and beaten to death. The police and social workers would be shipped off to a penal colony in Australia, never to be heard from again.

None of this will happen.

The British are a holy people, and this is why Britain has accelerated towards the leftist singularity even faster than the United States. Holy Britain, White Britain, is placed as a sacrifice on the altar of anarcho-tyranny, because anarcho-tyranny is the polite and proper thing to do.

  1. Yeah, but PC was imported into Britain from the US in the 1990s:

    Through the Seventies and Eighties I led him on his disgraceful way, toadying, lying, cheating, running away, treating women as chattels, abusing inferiors of all colours, with only one redeeming virtue – the unsparing honesty with which he admitted to his faults, and even gloried in them.

    And no one minded, or if they did, they didn’t tell me. In all the many thousands of readers’ letters I received, not one objected.

    In the Nineties, a change began to take place. Reviewers and interviewers started describing Flashman (and me) as politically incorrect, which we are, though by no means in the same way.

    This is fine by me. Flashman is my bread and butter, and if he wasn’t an elitist, racist, sexist swine, I’d be selling bootlaces at street corners instead of being a successful popular writer.

    But what I notice with amusement is that many commentators now draw attention to Flashy’s (and my) political incorrectness in order to make a point of distancing themselves from it.

    OTOH, the intense adverse reaction to the Enoch Powell speech in 1968 shows a real problem existed even then.

  2. Heh, well the only people more British than the British are the Americans.

    1. I’m still under the impression that British propriety is a more widespread value than in the United States–it’s much more like Canada, in that regard, where value surveys seem to show that the Brits, like the Canadians, are primarily concerned with politeness, deference to authority, conflict avoidance, multiculturalism (Canada, especially), etc. The British spirit is still different from the American one–loyalists vs. patriots. And perhaps the greatest innovations in cultural Marxism have in fact originated from the U.S. I can grant that. But what I tried to show is that origination is important, but not as important as how ideas are absorbed and subsumed by a culture on a very deep level (c.f. Scholastic development of rights and their reception by the Spanish).

      I do not think Rotherham would be tolerated in the U.S. in the same way that the Brits have–in the way they’ve played the propriety card.
