SUNDRY JOTTINGS FROM MY NOTEBOOK
Miscellaneous notes taken from my recent reading
A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers.
A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gate is less formidable, for he is known but the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not as a traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep within the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown into the night to undermine the pillars of the city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. – Cicero (106 BC – 43 BC)
PAKISTAN & AFGHANISTAN
Pakistan maybe is a pariah State run by psychopaths and crooks. In Afghanistan murder has become a sport. Yet the West preaches non-violence whilst at the same time using some of the most horrendous weapons ever known to mankind: the Stealth Bomber, Cruise Missiles, and the Reaper Drone. MPs of all parties live in permanent denial that ISIS grew out of the chaos of the Second Gulf War. TV media particularly censors the horrific details of Islamic life in these places.
ISLAM IN BRITAIN
In the UK Parliament recognition has been given to the legitimacy of Sharia Law under which divorce can leave a woman destitute and her children given to her husband. Christian beliefs, customs and culture are forever being held up to ridicule along with the importance of the family.
The Siege of Vienna incenses the left. They attribute to it no historical significance.. It is at best a romantic myth and not genuine history. Islam, they say, has never been a threat to Europe not will it ever be. In 1683, the King of Poland, John 3rd Sobieski, gathered his army together and marched to relive Vienna. 44,000 men reached Vienna on the 12 September and carried through the largest cavalry charge in history. On the 13th September the Turks were routed.
CAPITALISM AND THE LEFT UNITE
Capitalism and the Left hate borders, history, family and traditions. Immigrants have brought to Britain a lowering of wages and left the Bankers to reap the rewards. A flood of refugees from the Middle East will do the same. The wages crash in Germany alone is likely to be massive.
ON BRITISH VALUES
Strange new values ― self-esteem, fulfilling oneself, getting one's rights, having as much as someone else, not being at risk, living as long as possible, rejoicing in other's humiliation, self-expression unbridled by others' sensibility or one's own modesty, claiming victim status ― displace the old virtues. (Digby Anderson, written in 1998)
“(People) more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since it would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf
