Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII -

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Corona, 'The Science' or Scientism, Islam, the State, the cult of Gender Fascism, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion...

Tottenham and the failure of the British Marxist-Nanny state.

The real lessons will be ignored.

by StFerdIII



The UK riots which spread from 'multi-ethnic' communities in supposedly 'poor' north London to cities across the UK, were caused by the failure of the multi-cultural welfare state. But the rub is this. The British state will ignore that reality and will in most likelihood engage in more socialist engineering, compassion, love-outreach and welfare redistribution. In other words more of what has failed. This is the large hope of the civil service and the bureaucrats, along with the totem-worshipping Marxists, and multi-cult members. For these big brains the UK riots are caused by white oppression, poverty, and the lack of opportunity. A theorem of bunk of course, but one which comports itself with the steady rise of state power and state coercion. Never let a crisis go to waste, to quote the current mayor of Chicago and Obama devotee Mr. Emmanuel.

The nanny state destroys culture, social bonds, individual responsibility, truth and reality. For two generations the multi-cult regions of the UK have been fed welfare; a hatred of 'white imperialism'; a disavowal of 'capitalism'; an enshrinement of relativity and diversity. When the police prove themselves to be utterly useless why wouldn't a BlackBerry-toting, BMW driving 'homie' take to pillage and plunder? The society in which he lives, is a self-loathing, self-depreciating, guilt-ridden post-modern complex of psycho-babble and welfare. It is his 'human right' to have that iPhone, a Mac computer, the flat-screen 50 inch TV; and the latest $100 jeans.

The British social engineers have re-engineered the very meaning of poverty. Poverty has now been redefined to be anyone who does not own a used Mercedes and the latest iPhone. Poverty used to mean not having a place to sleep, clothes, or enough food. Today the socialist engineers have revised it all the way up to include people who have free education; free health care; free dental care; free public transport; free community center passes; free library access; free tutoring; preferred job access and preferred university enrolment. We don't have poverty. We have cultural stupidity. Free is now the new poverty.

Part of the multi-cult nonsense is the emasculation of the 'heroes' or the police. Back in the 90s, the British police were accused of racism [yawn] and unprovoked violence against non-Whites [double yawn]. So now the police can't use force, plastic bullets, water cannon or armed vehicles. Brilliant.

Prime Minister David Cameron has reopened Parliament and has vowed to send 16,000 police into the streets to retake them from the rioters. One aspect of the story in the U.K. Daily Mail was someone off putting to an American observer. It seems that the British riot police "could use plastic bullets" to quell the rioting.

This suggests the British police are not really equipped, either physically or psychologically, to deal with an insurrection of this violence and magnitude. An American big city police department would have lines of armored, baton wielding riot police deployed from the get go, backed up with water cannon and other police firing tear gas and plastic bullets. That the British were obviously treating the rioters with kid gloves explains why they spread from London's Tottenham district throughout London and across Great Britain.”

Not only is the British state viewed as a laughingstock by most of the multi-cult, it is also perceived by those receiving government largesse and 'free' welfare, as oppressive, evil and unworthy.

"Richard Fernandez adds, in Pajamas Media, the British state's legitimacy has eroded to such an extent that the rioters feel free to do what they want, burning down shops, stripping people naked, and stealing their property. Law abiding Britons, with the overstretched and over restrained police nowhere to be found, are forced to take matters into their own hands, fighting off rioters themselves with clubs or other improvised weapons.”

Tasha Kheiriddin in the National Post blames the Welfare state for the UK mess. This is only obvious but I doubt that the big brains will learn much from the UK riots:

It is the government's fault - not for provoking people by cutting the fat, but for creating a large unsustainable welfare state in the first place, which eventually, inevitably, had to be rolled back.” She says the effect of such a robust welfare system is “actual dependency, on government programs and handouts,” that has led to “an entitlement mentality that erodes the notion of personal responsibility.”

All true. Mercedes and BMWs parked outside subsidized housing. The 'poor' running amok with Blackberry's and smart phones, no doubt jamming on their hi-fi systems post-riots, and playing the Wii and Xbox with riotous glee in their newly stolen $200 Nikes. Why work, study, or participate in society, when that very society will pass off cheques to you to keep you quiet, and tell you via the media and educational systems that British history is but a litany of shame, imperialism, racism, stupidity, gluttony, war, violence and Christian fundamentalist insanity? In such a cultural milieu why not riot and steal ? Sure beats working, getting educated, having a skill or having your children from one man who is your husband.
