“You carry in your blood the holy inheritance of your
fathers and forefathers. You do not know those who
have vanished in endless ranks into the darkness of the
past. But they all live in you and walk in your blood upon
the earth that consumed them in battle and toil and in
which their bodies have long decayed.
Your blood is therefore something holy. In it your parents gave you not only a body, but your nature. To deny your blood is to deny yourself. No one can change it. But each decides to grow the good that one has
inherited and suppress the bad. Each is also given will
You do not have only the right, but also the duty to pass
your blood on to your children, for you are a member of
the chain of generations that reaches from the past into
eternity, and this link of the chain that you represent
must do its part so that the chain is never broken.
But if your blood has traits that will make your children
unhappy and burdens to the state, then you have the
heroic duty to be the last. The blood is the carrier of life. You carry in it the secret of creation itself. Your blood is holy, for in it God’s will

We must lift our gaze from the tawdry everyday, and see the interpenetrating miraculous within it.
Late evening, and I see that the toytown police state is slowly moving towards being a real one. A woman told off and threatened by police for wearing a T-shirt rude about Boris-idiot: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/jul/10/police-apologise-woman-told-cover-up-anti-boris-johnson-t-shirt
True, the slogan was vulgar, but not such as to constitute an offence such as “insulting behaviour”, particularly as it was presumably not meant to cause distress etc to Boris Johnson (who was in any case not present!). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intentional_harassment,_alarm_or_distress
I see, also, that Boris-idiot has said (been told to say?) that it may soon be “necessary” (mandated) to wear masks in shops! This is really getting to the point where people should “just say no”, but few will, because they need to shop, at least for food etc. https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-boris-johnson-tells-britons-to-go-back-to-work-and-hints-at-stricter-face-mask-rules-12025902
Tweets seen this evening
When I had a Twitter account, Eric Joyce, then still an MP, was rather rude to me once or twice. On another occasion, his wife or fiancee (I think the latter), the newspaper scribbler and novelist India Knight, was also rather rude to me, in her case in a very condescending way. My tweet was about MPs who cheat and freeload on the expenses system. At the time, I had no idea that Joyce was one of the worst of such embezzlers, nor that India Knight was living with him (or vice versa).
Well, I suppose one should not kick people when they are down. What I wonder is what drove someone who was once an officer, and later an MP, to do such a nasty and stupid thing (I mean his latest offence).
I had thought that Joyce had been an officer in the Black Watch. In fact, he was a private soldier at first, and his commission was in the Educational Corps: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Joyce. He was asked to resign his commission in 1999, having engaged in public politics contrary to Queen’s Regulations. He became an MP in 2000, having been employed in the interim period at the Commission for Racial Equality. Black mark…
I am just sick of the bloody BBC: entitled, biased, a government mouthpiece, with terrible standards in recent years, an ideology of treachery etc. The BBC management even had to ask staff not to wear their “Black Lives Matter” badges (!) on air! They’re all just a bunch of traitors. Many are (((you know who))), too…
The purge on dissent, and on free speech, continues. Once all peaceful means of socio-political expression are cut off, what, I wonder, will the people of Europe then do? Those who clap the campaign of repression may find themselves in a bad place, somewhere down the line…
