Memorable quotes

No reason for posting this except to share a few quotes I have found memorable. Feel free to share your own.

Sean Gabb

Posted in Factual information, Free speech on August 10, 2008 by redandwhitestripes

On Friday, whilst searching for a different file on my laptop, I discovered a PDF of a book called :”Cultural Revolution, Culture War: How Conservatives Lost England, and How to Get It Back” by Sean Gabb.

I had no recollection of seeing the download, the book or the author but I’m very glad I discovered it.

Sean Gabb is apparently leader of the UK Libertarian Alliance and a true conservative. The book is short and highly readable and Gabb astutely dissects a very clever form of thought control, cultural conditioning and creeping normalcy used by the UK government. By analysing usage of Orwellian terminology such as “Far right” (Thereby allowing the media to label anyone as “right wing” as being measurably close to the evils of Hitler), “progressive” and “modernisation” , Gabb demonstrates a rule that’s importance had been lost on me ever since I learnt it in A-Level psychology: the vocabulary available to us affects and conditions the thoughts available to us.

Another area where Gabb and I agree – though Gabb is far more articulate – is the attack on one of the most exploited, ambiguous, demonised and overused words in the English language: “racist”. As Gabb points out, a ‘racist’ can be a doctor who conducts a scientific test that shows Hispanics have a higher IQ than Asians, it can mean a difference of values between two groups of people or simply a preference for one’s own people and values.

I detest the word ‘racism’ and so does Gabb, apparently. (Genuine hostility, harm or maltreatment of somebody based purely on their race is racial discrimination).

Gabb has a range of books, articles and media clips available on his web site including the aforementioned book utterly free of charge. If you like it, please send him a donation. I sent a tenner myself, a bargain for the books on offer. There are few academics who take a stand against the nonsense pervading our society in this day and age, but Gabb seems to be one of the brave ones.

Reasons to keep out of Europe’s EU pt2

Reasons to keep out of Europe’s EU

Posted in The European Union (EU) with tags on August 5, 2008 by redandwhitestripes

It just occurred to me today that it would be useful to collate some of the evidence and arguments against EU membership. So let’s begin!

This is a new idea which I will update regularly.

1) Corruption is increased exponentially by the EU

MEP’s censor details of expenses claimed to the sum of 140 million

2) Lack of transparency.

EUP elects to clarify “documents” as papers on the official register only. (See ‘Private Eye’ issue 1213)

3) It’s undemocratic.

The “no” vote to the Lisbon treaty has been treated with utter contempt. (See this video too)

Group forming rules are being changed to squeeze our euro-sceptics.

Ask Jean Marie for a great speech on the EU!

BNP policies in use elsewhere?

Posted in Factual information on August 2, 2008 by redandwhitestripes

The BNP manifesto is not revolutionary or an untested collection of ideology. Many of the party policies have been used or are in use elsewhere.

Men who have completed military service should be obliged to keep a gun in the home for use in defence.

This policy has been used in Switzerland. Crime remains low and accidents with guns are equally sparse.

Opting out of the EU.
This has been done by Norway, Switzerland and to some extent now by Ireland. None of these countries have seen any loss of economic fortune. Indeed, Norway remains a model economy in many respects. Yes this is partly due to its abundant resources but good management has also played a key role.

Voluntary Repatriation of immigrants.

As the official site announces, Spain has now begun a system of paying fifty percent of benefits to unemployed immigrants providing they repatriate. The policy has so far been peaceful and successful.

Of course, no two countries are exactly the same and what works for one might not work for another. Likewise, even when policies run successfully there are lessons to be learned. Italy’s recent removal of foreigners did spark some violence which was not well handled and resulted in utterly tragic deaths.

But the point is that BNP policies are not extreme. They are pragmatic, workable and relevant to the UK. It should be clear that our current government is not up to the task, isn’t it time to give the UK the reform it needs?

Now I’m off to try and improve at ‘MASS Effect’ on the Xbox360. I’m an old school console gamer so it often takes me a while to adjust to games with so many control options on a joypad.
