Diary Blog, 28 February 2021, including a few thoughts about trees and forests

I happened to see a report in the Independent about trees: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/prison-green-space-trees-mental-health-b1808251.html.

As Chekhov said, either (I forget) in one of his famous works, or perhaps to Gorky, and later recounted in Gorky’s memoirs called Literary Portraits, that “there are men to whom a tree is sacred“.

It is hard to imagine anywhere, or any architecture, that cannot be improved by the proximity of a few trees, or which will not be impoverished if existing trees are cut down.

Trees have several enemies in modern Britain, not least local councils who often resent the cost of sweeping leaves etc. The “health and safety” aspect is sometimes brought into play, often unecessarily. Yes, occasionally, tree branches do fall on people or, more usually, parked cars, during storms or other periods of high wind. That is not a good reason to cut down trees wholesale.

Britain has relatively low tree cover, comparing the UK to other European countries by proportion. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_countries_by_forest_area. Britain’s tree cover, though greater than it was in the recent past, is still only 13%. Germany has 33%, France 36%, and Finland 73%.

There have been attempts, still continuing, to create new forests in the UK: the Heart of England Forest is one, created by the one-time Oz magazine defendant, Felix Dennis [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felix_Dennis; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_of_England_Forest; https://www.heartofenglandforest.com/].

Another is the National Forest: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_National_Forest_(England); https://www.nationalforest.org/

[the National Forest, northeast of Birmingham]

Britain needs more forests, more woods, more tree cover generally, eg in urban and suburban areas. The Woodland Trust, which has planted over 43 million trees over the past four or five decades, can help and even gives away saplings in some cases: https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodland_Trust.

Watched an old (1949) British film, The Golden Madonna [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Madonna]. A few silly bits, but overall quite good and rather entertaining.

I can understand why Hitchens has acceded to the softly-spoken insistence that he have the Covid-19 vaccine injection. He wants to travel, and that is being made all but impossible without vaccination. Many in the old Soviet Union, the vast majority in fact, made the same sort of compromise: unenthusiastic compliance with the regime, in order to live a quiet life, avoid penalties, and receive modest benefits such as good jobs, flats, or (for the few) travel outside Soviet borders.

This is her: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sara_Khan_(activist) (“activist” and careerist, who was a hospital pharmacist before getting into her well-paid anti-free-speech government sinecure).

If even part of her “report” were to become law and actually implemented, that is the end of even the limited free speech that now exists in the UK.

An idealized view, to be sure, but essentially accurate. Britain was a better place before migration invasion, before Zionist control of the mass media (and now even online space), before multikulti and other nonsense.

“European Housewife” was one of the most charming and unusual Twitter accounts. Historical and environmental as well as political and social. Now “suspended”. The latest victim of the war on free speech.

An old German lady told me, long ago, that “it will take a long time, but people will eventually have to face the fact that the only answer is National Socialism.

Hitler, in his Table Talk [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitler%27s_Table_Talk] remarks, not far from the disastrous end of the Second World War, that National Socialism (as known) was finished, but that in maybe a century’s time, the essence of National Socialism would be reborn in another form and then would seize the world with the force of a religion. God mote it be!

Interesting. The never-ending movement of history.

Final word for tonight

Some readers of my blog may have noticed that a small group of (((trolls))) and nuisances on Twitter have recently been making untrue allegations of criminal or near-criminal behaviour by me and two other named persons.

In relation to the allegations against me specifically, I have already been forced to complain to the employer of one of the said nuisances, an NHS consultant. I may be making further complaint (regulatory and/or official) in relation to that person and others.

I am not a natural complainer (and usually ignore trolls and nuisances because of my belief in free speech), but was forced, by the harassing tweets of these individuals, to take action.

Diary Blog, 26 February 2021, including some thoughts about crazy cults

The madness of belief

I was listening last night to BBC World Service; a piece about “Bhagwan Shri Rajneesh” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rajneesh], one of the “gurus” of the 1960s and 1970s, and favoured by the hippy element (and some pop stars).

There was a whole mass of odd “gurus”, supposed religious teachers etc around at that time. Most were broadly of Hindu orientation, though some were Buddhist, or even “Christian”, e.g. the “Reverend” Jim Jones [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Jones]. Some invented their own religions, as did L. Ron Hubbard (who invented Scientology in the 1950s), and the “Reverend” Moon of South Korea, whose “Moonies” became a pest across the Western world. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Myung_Moon; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._Ron_Hubbard

As a matter of fact, I was wandering around London, I think in 1978, aged 21, when two people, a young man and a young Asian woman, accosted me in Edgware Road. I was living in Little Venice at the time. I quickly guessed that they were Moonies but, curious, allowed myself to be invited to their HQ, which turned out to be a fairly large house in, I think, either Paddington or Notting Hill. The latter, as far as I can remember.

I was given a drink (instant coffee, I think) and a biscuit, and was then invited to an odd lecture (audience: about a dozen people, all young) by a possibly Korean, or Chinese, woman, not unattractive and aged about 30-ish.

I was slightly worried (the Moonies having been the subject of tabloid Press outrage) that I might be somehow prevented from leaving, but once the lecture was over (it concerned some weird ideas about how the Earth was created, the lecturer using a blackboard and chalk circles), I simply expessed a polite but firm intention to leave, thanked them, and walked out, never to see (as far as I know) another Moonie for the rest of my life.

As far as Bhagwan Shri Rajneesh is concerned, the only one of his disciples or former disciples I met was a woman whom my then girlfriend invited to the home we (sometimes) shared. That would have been mid-1980s.

The woman, divorced, had completed a Master’s degree at the University of Essex in he 1970s, where my 1980s girlfriend, a Cambridge graduate, had also taken a higher degree at the same time. The other woman had married a Jew, and brought her two rather unpleasant, rude, and badly-behaved young sons (aged about 4 or 5) with her. She was, I had been told, a senior official in the —even then, rather notorious— Haringey Council in North West London.

She started talking about how she had at one time been involved with the Rajneesh cult (she referred to the Indian as “the Bagwash”, perhaps in an attempt not to seem brainwashed). She said that she could still see some value in what the cult taught. I could only listen, not knowing anything to speak of about that cult. I certainly had no idea that it was at least partly a “sex cult”! The afternoon did not end very amicably.

The “guru” himself is now dead, having had a heart attack at age 58 in 1990.

Bhagwan beweging gekwetst door reclame-affiche van het NRC met de tekst profeet , Bestanddeelnr 933-0734-cropped.jpg
[“Rajneesh Shri Bhagwan” in 1984]

Listening to the BBC broadcast [https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-44300915], what struck me most was the sheer decadence not (only) of the “guru” but more so of the white Western people who bowed down to what Churchill might have called (his description of Gandhi) “a half-naked native fakir“.

Of course, to be fair, Rajneesh was only an Indian con-man, not a supposed political “saint” whose activism led to the Partition of formerly British India, with the loss of life possibly topping 2 million: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partition_of_India. [cf. Mandela…]

To my mind (no doubt “prejudiced”, “racist” etc…), it is almost beyond belief that young European (white) women from the UK, Germany, USA etc would want to have sexual relations with the Rajneesh creature. Does “group hypnotism” or “Stockholm Syndrome” explain some of that?

Likewise, the idiots not only accepted that Rajneesh was screwing many of the women, but accepted his extravagance on himself, as they slaved to bring in money to the cult, and/or gave their own money for the use of the “guru”.

Rajneesh had just under 100 Rolls-Royce cars, for example. The photos below show him expounding his “truths” to the “chelas”; also, his white serfs lining up to worship him as he drove past, covering them in dust. Madness. Rassenschande.

Bhagwan 1976
Hugh Milne
by Samvado Kossatz on the ranch in Oregon, 1982 - in the early 2000s, Samvado allowed use of the photo conditional on him getting the photo credit.

Did they stand there clapping, too? Or was mere silent worship enough?

I imagine that most of the followers were probably not hugely intelligent. Certainly, the Scottish bodyguard reminiscing on the BBC did not give a very intelligent impression. Still, interesting from the psychological point of view. The followers were (superficially) seeking enlightenment, sought it from Rajneesh, and seem not to have been too fazed by his sexual antics, or by his ownership of about 94 Rolls-Royces. Very odd, to me. I suppose that I am rather an ancient Roman, in my way…

Rajneesh was not the only guru-figure who liked Rolls-Royce cars: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prem_Rawat#Lifestyle

Eventually, the Rajneesh cult ended in tears, with murder plots, criminal charges etc. The cultists even tried to kill 750 Oregon inhabitants by poisoning. Shades of Jonestown [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonestown]. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1984_Rajneeshee_bioterror_attack; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ma_Anand_Sheela.

To any Western person of rational mind, that cult was crazy, as are or were “Jonestown”, Scientology, Moonies etc. There are literally thousands of other examples, from “Maharaj Ji” to the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the believers in “Joanna Southcott’s box”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joanna_Southcott; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prem_Rawat; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jehovah%27s_Witnesses

Indeed, the Westernized Indians also look with disfavour upon the cults, such as those mentioned, the “Hare Krishna’s” etc, which mostly appeal to Western people. Books have been written, by satirical Indians, about it. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karma_Cola

Having said that, of course some of the major religions of today were once regarded by many of the people of the time of their inception as equally crazy. Christianity was looked upon as both mad and seditious by Rome, until Constantine adopted it. The same could be said of Islam, mutatis mutandis.

The only guides are reason, conscience, and instinct.

Looking at it in the wider historical context, cults and fantastic beliefs have always existed, but seem to flourish more during times of collapse of existing order and established belief.

Interesting psychological experiment. Not surprising though. A virus which kills one in a thousand people has been presented as a “Black Death”, and has led to human “rabbits” wearing facemasks as ordered (and even when walking alone in the open air!), keeping away from each other, making their children into poor pathetic muzzled and isolated units even in school, and so on.

Not a bad film, but arguably far too sympathetic to the fugitive couple. Few were arrested solely for their opposition to the Vietnam War. Fugitives of that sort usually were wanted on charges of murder, manslaughter, robbing banks, setting off bombs etc.

There was a similar case in real life, seen on TV by me when I was staying on the Gulf Coast of Florida in 1999. A woman in (I think) Ohio, or somewhere that way, was arrested. A housewife/homemaker, married to a dentist who knew nothing of her past (if I am remembering correctly) or her real name. Arrested on Federal warrant originally dated sometime around 1970.

I think that this was a similar case: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2002/jan/20/duncancampbell.theobserver; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weather_Underground#Legacy

Tweeter “Jason/@j8ybb” is all too typical. Ignorant, thinks that an insult is an argument, and seems to think (or has been brainwashed into thinking) that White Northern Europeans are somehow worse than, and certainly not more advanced than, the “blacks and browns”. He also seems to despise what appears to be his own ancestry and people.

Diary Blog, 25 February 2021

Was just watching a quite interesting film, After the Dark: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/After_the_Dark

Watching that film brought to mind my blogging on the theme of the re-creation or rebuilding of an advanced white Northern European (or post-Aryan) society if terrible events should strike down our present world. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/26/the-tide-is-coming-in-reflections-on-the-possible-end-of-our-present-civilization-and-what-might-follow/.

We often spend time doing things such as trying to gain ordinary political traction, or defending ourselves against the onslaught of nonsense (malicious complaints to social media organizations, police etc) from the Jew-Zionist element and their “antifa” idiot-serfs, or commenting on the events of the day.

All of the above are of course necessary, but we should never forget that ou primary focus should be the creation of a new and better society, together with the race and culture which should and must underpin that new society.

Society consists of people, and the most important thing of all is the production of sufficient numbers of white Northern European children, properly brought up and educated.

We, as white Northern Europeans, are facing existential peril. Call it “the Great Replacement” or simply “White Genocide”. Whatever. For example, in the world as a whole, only a few percent of people in this world are actually ethnically European, even broadly.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_people (n.b.the most populous regions, i.e. those of Asia, especially China, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, which four states comprise nearly half the world population, are not covered in that article).

More directly, our own European societies have faced, in the past half century or so, unprecedented migration invasion. Since the fall of the socialist world (i.e. since 1989) and particularly since the disruptions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and the fall of Gaddafi in Libya, a gigantic wave of migration-invasion has hit Europe.

We have seen how the evil cabals of the international conspiracy have helped that invasion, and funnelled the invaders from Africa and Asia to Europe, even to the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia etc; even to Iceland!

We have our backs to the wall, but all is not lost. The world may soon face destruction on a scale that may dwarf even the terrible events of the Second World War. If (when) that happens, we as white Northern European social nationalists may be mere bystanders and/or victims, but after the corrupt old world is destroyed (in large measure) we shall have both the opportunity and the duty to create a new society out of the ruins of the old.

For God’s sake, just check the the pupils are all breathing, then chuck them all “A” grades.

Another 49 “detained” (i.e. registered, given shelter and food and about ยฃ50 a week in spending money, then allowed to roam British streets).

In fact, not 49 but 175, because the French navy etc “detained” 126 others, then brought them to Dover!

175 a day now, in the winter. That will be 500 a day, probably more, by midsummer. Note also that most of the invaders today were picked up by French naval forces, then “escorted to Britain“!

Many appeared to be men of African origin with one young teenage boy spotted among the groups.

This is a disguised shuttle service, designed to flood the UK with more untermenschen, and in large numbers over time. In ordinary language, treason.

“Ruben Hood, Ruben Hood, riding through the glen…”

I happened to catch the end credits of an episode of the 1950s TV series The Adventures of Robin Hood [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adventures_of_Robin_Hood_(TV_series)], which I recall seeing as a young child (I was born in 1956, but the series was being shown in the UK until 1961 or even later).

I was unaware until today that the executive producer was a Jewish woman called Hannah Weinstein [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hannah_Weinstein]: “In 1952, after settling in London, she established her own production company, Sapphire Films, financially aided by the American Communist Party.[3][4] The company eventually made series for the British commercial ITV network via an arrangement with ITC‘s Lew Grade.” [Wikipedia].

Who would have thought it? Robin Hood filmed by an American Jewess closely connected with the American Communist Party?

Even I am amazed that the contamination of (in) UK-based TV was so blatant as long ago as 1956.

Maybe the theme song was a clue, using the Scottish word “glen” for a location in England. I noted also, today, that the Script Supervisor was one “Ruben”…

From 1939. When I set foot on the Charles Bridge, in 1988, there were even fewer people than in that 1939 photograph.

It occurs to me, not for the first time, that a major difference between the UK and most of Europe is that, by reason of the Second World War and other upheavals, those other countries have had to look at and revalue their societies and institutions in a way that Britain has not. Not to anything like the same extent. Which is perhaps why Britain has institutions of various sorts that really are running on empty, that are just shells, without much real substance.

What do I mean by the above? Look at, inter alia, Parliament (the Commons and, even more so, the House of Lords), the Monarchy, the FPTP voting system, the Bar, the overall educational system, and the devalued Honours system.

The very fact that a dim and corrupt woman such as Jacqui Smith became an MP says much about the decadence of the political system in the UK. That she became Home Secretary beggars belief. Corrupt, an expenses cheat, a freeloader and a fraudster, as well as an influence-peddler.

She resigned as Home Secretary on 5 June 2009 following her involvement in the United Kingdom parliamentary expenses scandal in which she had falsely claimed that a room in her sister’s house was her main home.” [Wikipedia] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacqui_Smith#Expenses_controversies.

Thick as two short planks, she was a teacher in the State school system before latching to to the old MP racket.

Now look. Despite her disgrace and removal as MP, she is sometimes invited onto TV shows as (risibly) having some kind of weight or credibility (why?), is paid much for “consultancy” “work” with KPMG etc (why? she knows nothing), and is even invited to take part in pleb-TV such as Strictly Come Dancing. How does she get away with it? Well, she is pro-NWO, pro-Israel, pro-Jewish lobby. Das ist’s! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacqui_Smith#After_politics

Not that I have much time for George Galloway, who had the cheek to insult me and block me on Twitter. A political self-server and chancer, who (like not a few of the self-describing “Left” and “antifascists”) loudly opposes Israel while at the same time giving lip-service to the “holocaust” fable (even the absurd fiction of “gas chambers”) which fable is Israel’s main weapon; he pretends (?) to be not “antisemitic” (as if being “antisemitic” were a bad thing).

James O’Brien. Just another msm drone and Jewish-lobby puppet.

There is little point in arguing with enemies of that sort…

Emma Barnett describes herself as “a camouflaged Jew“. Not much! “They” always imagine that they are not immediately obvious but, in 99% of cases, are (if one is not asleep).

I repeat, arguing with such individuals is a waste of time…

When I myself was about 7, 8, 9, in the early-mid 1960s, I would often cycle from my home (almost at the very point at which Reading, Berkshire, becomes South Oxfordshire and open fields). I would sometimes venture several miles further, often to Mapledurham (the Thames-side village used, a few years later, in The Eagle Has Landed, though in that film the location was transposed to coastal Norfolk).

Hitchens is right. Almost everyone now is afraid of others, of a virus most will either not get or, if they get it, will not be aware of it, and of their own shadows.

Yes. I occasionally used to use Downing Street as a short cut, in the early 1980s, before the “Thatcher Gates” were installed.

Hitler etc

The huge “Hitler industry” rolls on, making profits for (often) Jews and others. Much of it is nonsensical. The typical TV “documentary” on Hitler has a number of “experts” (not infrequently Jewish), and often not very expert.

I was just watching a film about Hitler’s own art collection, and his own private funds. There were a number of schoolboy-level errors, as when one American “expert” mentioned the concentration camp “near the little town of Dachau, just south of Munich.” Dachau is north-west of Munich. I remember seeing the roadsigns for that place as I myself drove north out of Munich. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dachau,_Bavaria#Geography.

A small point, admittedly, but typical of the careless scholarship on anything to do with the NSDAP, Hitler, or the Reich generally.

The film about Hitler’s private funds did contain some points of interest, as when one researcher said that, when he started to research the subject, he was expecting to find that Hitler had looted his art collection (“expecting“…!), but was “surprised” (!) to find that every last item had actually been paid for in the usual way.

Looks like that researcher had had his mind warped by anti-Hitler propaganda…at least he was honest to admit what he had found out.

This is but the start. Whether the repression will reach its peak in 2021-2022 is as yet uncertain. It may not reach its peak until many years down the line. I do not know. What is happening now seems to be in the nature of a mass psychological experiment. How much will people take? How far can they be led? How much control will they accept? And so on.

Radio 4, as heard this morning

Heard Ramblings, with horse expert and TV presenter Clare Balding: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000s9rm.

The path (part of the now-called “Thames Path”) by the River Thames between Pangbourne and Goring, an area I myself know well, both in a childhood of the early/mid 1960s and early 1970s, and later, when I walked that same path in 1998. It was pretty overgrown in places at that time.

An area of England that has not changed much, superficially, in the past decades.

After that, Farming Today had an interview with a farmer who, starting several years ago, realized that his arable farm, farmed using modern chemicals etc, was losing all soil vitality. As a result, he has turned more to the once-common, but now rather rare, mixed farm model (decried by industrial farmers as inefficient).

Wise move. Rudolf Steiner said that the best model for farming was the mixed farm. Long term view, not short term. Environmentally-friendly.

As for economic efficiency, I do not think that anyone would claim that the Laverstoke Farm estate owned by ex-racing driver Jody Scheckter [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jody_Scheckter#Present] is not an economic success story! A massive success, “despite” being both mixed and biodynamic: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laverstoke_Park_Farm; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biodynamic_agriculture; https://www.laverstokepark.co.uk/

Radio 4 Today was then broadcast. They interviewed an expert in cryptocurrencies, who himself has made tens of millions of pounds from them. He expects a Bitcoin crash.

Bitcoin was invented in 2008, and at first had no real-world value at all.

I myself blogged about Bitcoin, over three years ago, in late 2017: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/12/10/thoughts-about-bitcoin/

I think that 1 Bitcoin was valued around ยฃ10,000 at time of blogging. Between then and now, the price has varied between about ยฃ2,600 at lowest and today’s recordbreaking peak.

As of today, 20th February 2021, 1 Bitcoin is valued at not far short of ยฃ40,000!

I expected a Bitcoin crash three years ago. Never happened, though the value did plummet before recovering and climbing further. Now, though, a crash is surely (?) inevitable.

I notice that Alison Chabloz accepts Bitcoin donations; I hope that she got some before the price rocketed, and still has them. If so, she may have a windfall. https://alisonchabloz.com/how-to-donate/.

Strange to think that an early investor or speculator in Bitcoin, who might have bought 100 Bitcoin for as little as ยฃ200 in 2011 (or only ยฃ20 at start of trading in early 2011, i.e. at about 20p each), would now be sitting on ยฃ4 million.

On the other hand, any value held in Bitcoin is like value held in chips at a casino. Until cashed in, they are only of notional value. The man or woman who bought 100 Bitcoin for ยฃ20 or ยฃ200 in 2011, and who is now sitting on ยฃ4M, may soon be sitting on ยฃ40M, or ยฃ400,000, or ยฃ4,000, or 4p…

I suppose that anyone who is in the fortunate position of owning ยฃ4M in Bitcoin today would be well advised to buy a decent country house for ยฃ2M or ยฃ3M and retain the rest in Bitcoin while the price travels ever(?) higher.

There will be a crash in the end. This is fool’s gold spun out of straw.

Any future and updated edition of the economic and psychological classic, Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, will surely have a chapter on Bitcoin. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extraordinary_Popular_Delusions_and_the_Madness_of_Crowds

Anyone imagining that the “virus” hysteria and repression is all about “the virus” or public health is much mistaken. The health situation has been twisted and weaponized.

What we have seen over the past year is not complete as of itself, but a template for later repressions.

Worrying for sure that so many young British people are so brainwashed, but not an unexpected piece of news. After all, that is what the System aimed at and is aiming at, namely an unthinking, easily manipulated, cultureless, and eventually raceless population. The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan. White Genocide.

This is happening widely. My own mother-in-law, aged about 95, was recently in hospital with a non-Covid problem. After about 2-3 weeks in hospital, her routine test was positive. She had, like so many, picked up “the virus” in hospital. She had no (and never developed any) symptoms at all (and is now back at her home), but had she died in hospital from her pre-existing problem, she would have been marked down as having died “with Coronavirus” or “within 28 days of having had a positive Coronavirus test”.

This is abuse of statistics (and hoodwinking of the public) taken to an absurd level.

I have recently blogged, though only briefly, about my experiences of Prague in 1988 and 1999.

Chekhov had a point. It might be argued that in contemporary Britain, and in North America, there is at least no “premature old age“, but maybe there is: true, people are living longer in years, but at the same time a strange double-aspect is seen.

The young today are careful, cautious, scared of what they are indoctrinated into being scared of, meaning “the virus”, “racism”, “sexism” etc; even taking any risk at all. In short, they often seem to exhibit traits of caution and even fearfulness, traditionally the preserve of the middleaged and, indeed, the elderly.

The other aspect seen would be a kind of juvenile attitude to life, seen in the adult, even in the middleaged. The obsessive interest in (in the UK) soccer football and (in the USA) American football. The playing of video games, computer games by those aged 30, 40, even 50+.

Other symptoms? The whole “dating app” culture. The middleaged women, often divorced, who feverishly pretend to a lifestyle more appropriate (if at all) to girls of 18 or 20. The male equivalent, as well. Also, the lack of interest in anything of a serious nature, even in those who (via entitlement more than via merit, often) are in the highest positions.

Examples? It became notorious, during the disastrous years of the David Cameron-Levita governments of 2010-2015, that the Prime Minister of the UK spent what his own civil servants called “a frightening amount of time” playing games on his mobile telephone. If I recall aright, his favourite was one called Angry Birds.

Others in that evil yet stupid 2010-2015 government had similar tastes. One was the useless Ed Vaizey (like David Cameron-Levita, a part-Jew).

Now we have “Boris” Johnson, another part-Jew, and another with puerile tastes and behavioural patterns. Someone just posing as Prime Minister, as did Cameron-Levita.

The above may explain why it is hard to form a serious non-System political party worth anything. The young are more interested in complying with whatever they are told by the msm , or in whatever is said about them or their friends on various social media platforms. The older (25+) people are not much better, and the middleaged are mainly engaged in pursuits which are extensions of juvenalia.

Politics, especially radical/revolutionary politics, requires other traits: risk-taking, commitment to ideals and to a cause, a certain selflessness, a willingness by the individual to join with others for a noble cause, as well as anger at the way things are, and a determination to struggle to a better future.

The National Socialists of 1919-1945 had that; the Bolsheviks and other Communists had that; the milder socialists and social-democrats too. Without that drive and belief, everything just trundles on as it is, or perhaps gradually getting worse.

Ha. When living in Kazakhstan (1996-97), I used to travel up to the mountains with friends in their Lada Niva. I even drove it for short distances once or twice myself. In the UK, a few years ago, I thought of buying a secondhand one, but few were available and, crucially, the Niva only comes in standard shift, not automatic, and my present (UK) driving licence only allows me to drive automatics. Quite a good budget option for off-road, though.

I generally disapprove of capital punishment, as such (for spiritual-religious reasons, and because justice must be tempered with mercy), but there may be situations where a public hanging might do much to repress those who should be repressed.

Tweeting, blogging, vlogging, putting up no-hope election candidates, can only take you so far in the present and developing climate…

Ha ha! That reminds me when a Soviet citizen visiting London in the late 1980s saw the BBC TV News, presented by Moira Stuart [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moira_Stuart], and said to me, “not only a black woman, but one with a speech impediment!“…

What would he have thought of Britain in 2021?

G.K. Chesterton and M.R. James would have been interested, I expect.

Typical ahistorical nonsense

The tweets below are typical of the ahistorical nonsense that abounds today:

Tweeted by a barrister, one of them, so I suppose that younger people reading think it “must be right”. In fact, while it is true that women (and others) could be refused service in a pub, that almost never happened simply because a woman wanted a drink. The same was true of blacks. As for “being gay was imprisonable“…no, it never was, not in the UK, though there were offences committed if actual gay sex was indulged in.

As ever, the devil is in the detail, and in the words “legal right“…

Those tweets give a false picture.

I myself was once refused service in a bar, for having entered the saloon bar of a country pub, in Surrey, while wearing muddy Wellingtons. I, and the young lady accompanying me, had to move to the (equally empty) public bar, where the floor consisted of stone flags instead of carpet. That was in 1984.

If I am not mistaken, the person tweeting and writing above has always supported the Zionist attacks on those such as me, Alison Chabloz etc, who are having to struggle for their rights to free speech and freedom of expression.

Can you imagine where Harry would be without his “royal” background (with its support package of money, deferential interviews etc)? Nowhere; he would not even have a job. Oh, no, wait…

As I predicted, he and the Royal Mulatta have ended up where they always were going to end up— in California, grubbing money as part of the Hollywood multikulti pleb-spectacle.

I read, about 40 years ago, that if Etna were to erupt, followed by Vesuvius, it would be a sign that the Earth’s poles were going to shift to new positions, causing disastrous upheaval all over the world. Probably not true…

Can you imagine many parents today allowing their (just, by 2 weeks or so) 13 year old son to get a local bus from the Port Everglades terminal to Fort Lauderdale, then a Greyhound bus to downtown Miami, wander around alone, and trust him to return (to the British ship P & O Oriana), by evening sailing time? I cannot (I am not so sure that I myself would be so trusting or confident, were I in the position that my parents were in 1969, when en passage from Sydney to Southampton).

Having said that, when I raised the point and the memory a few years ago, in relation to my then-young nephew, maybe 14, having to be accompanied when travelling between London and points South West, my mother simply replied “you were a different kettle of fish“…

There is no point trying to debate with a creature of that sort, and it seems that subsidized Channel 4 cut Hitchens’ words anyway. Creatures of that sort are enemies of our European race and culture, despite their being the beneficiaries of it. We need a different type of society…

When I was briefly in Prague in 1988 (en route by car from “the West” to Poland), there were no or almost no tourists, and it was still a socialist-model society. The famous Charles Bridge had only a dozen tourists (if that) on it…in peak summer! My second visit was in the Autumn of 1999, and the ambience of the city had changed out of all recognition. Freer perhaps, more crowded certainly, with innumerable tourists.

On the wider point, I have noticed over the years that Jews in the UK are very eager to get their children into Cambridge, Oxford or, at the earlier stage and if they can afford it, Eton. It is a kind of colonization.

Thoughts

Dictatorial “lockdown”, mishandled Brexit, continuing mass immigration (though slowed by some voluntary repatriation over past months), collapsing real economy, sliding real estate values in London. Mass unemployment. Huge divides opening up, socially, culturally and politically.

There is no “revolutionary situation” in the UK. Not yet. By 2022, there may be, or at least the start of one.

“Dr” Louise Raw, prolific “antifascist” tweeter, fantasizing about being able to arrest, have arrested, or see being arrested, those with whom she disagrees socially or politically. Not “just” those she and her type label “fascist”, “Nazi”, “neo-Nazi” etc, but also persons such as American alt-Right journalist Andrew Ngo, or London radio loudmouth Julia Hartley-Brewer.

I suppose that one could call “Dr” Raw’s attitude “Stalinist” or “neo-Stalinist”, or maybe “neo-Trotskyist” (after all, the Jew Trotsky —L.D. Bronstein, to apply his original name— had plenty of people shot, including trade unionists: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leon_Trotsky; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leon_Trotsky#Trotsky’s_contribution_to_the_Russian_Revolution).

On the other hand, to compare “Dr” Raw or her like to Trotsky or Stalin (or Dzerzhinsky for that matter) would be even more silly than her labelling of others. As Marx commented in The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte, the “first time tragedy, second time, farce“. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Eighteenth_Brumaire_of_Louis_Bonaparte.

As I have often noted in this blog, “socialism” died around 1989 and has been replaced by the grotesqueries of “Black Lives Matter”, LGBTQXYZ nonsense, “trans” nonsense, “antiracism” nonsense and all the other socio-political absurdities we now see around the self-describing “Left”.

Silly people such as “Dr” Raw tweet about locking people up for their views, but she at least seems (?) to have enough awareness to realize that she and her cohorts cannot actually do that. She and they are reduced to bleating that the State, or someone, or anyone, should take such measures.

The self-describing UK “Left” is now the haunt not of the scoundrel, not solely anyway, but of those in a comfortable, unthinking, and mutually-supporting niche, who want to be told what to think, say or do by the EU, official bodies, “Covid marshals” etc. Thus they love Twitter, and their greatest joy is to see someone of whom they disapprove expelled from Twitter. They put forward no programme, have no political traction, and are basically irrelevant.

I might add, “ask not for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee“…

Incidentally, Kim Philby [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Philby] was a great admirer of Eighteenth Brumaire. I expect that he would have known the fact noted below:

In the preface to the second edition of The Eighteenth Brumaire, Marx stated that the purpose of this essay was to “demonstrate how the class struggle in France created circumstances and relationships that made it possible for a grotesque mediocrity to play a hero’s part.”[1]” [Wikipedia] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Eighteenth_Brumaire_of_Louis_Bonaparte. [my bold emphasis].

Is that how Philby secretly viewed himself? As a “grotesque mediocrity” nonetheless able to play a role arguably (in Philby’s mind?) “heroic”? Was that one reason why Philby drank so much, that dissonance?

I suppose that we shall never know. In any event, I myself am sceptical of the (supposed) importance or significance of Philby, despite the books which continue to be churned out about him, mostly in the UK.

As a matter of fact, I once (in fact more than once; several times) met someone who had once met Philby, or at least had heard him give a lecture. I should have been more curious and asked about that person’s impression of the “great spy” and/or “great traitor”.

Talk about “cultural appropriation”!

One of the most telling ways in which the Jew-Zionist lobby has poisoned the UK is in the “denial” label. First there was “holocaust” “denial”, aimed at anyone, whether professional historian or not, questioning the “holocaust” narrative in whole or part (even the ludicrous “gas chambers” nonsense).

After that came climate change “denial”, a term aimed at anyone questioning the causes or effects of what was originally termed “global warming”. As with “holocaust” “denial”, it turns out that the “deniers” have at least the preponderance of fact on their side: Prince Charles and others were wrong when they said, in 2009, that humanity had 3, then 5, then 7 years “to save the planet”.

It turned out that the “experts” were not only wrong but actively mendacious in saying that the Himalayan glaciers would soon melt completely, resulting in the Ganges, Indus and Brahmaputra all running dry.

Al Gore and others were just lying when their films showed the Aral Sea becoming near-desert because of climate change (it was because Soviet planners diverted the feeder waters to cotton production in the 1960s and 1970s). Likewise, while Kilimanjaro had lost much of its snow cap in 2009 [https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/11/091102171209.htm], old photos show similar views a century before, and recent snows have defied the predictions of no-snow by 2020: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/staying-power-of-kilimanjaro-snow-defies-al-gores-gloomy-forecast-8x8l7s0v3. See also: https://skepticalscience.com/mount-kilimanjaro-snow.htm:

Mt. Kilimanjaro’s ice loss is due to land use.

‘Gore claims the snowcap atop Africa’s Mt. Kilimanjaro is shrinking and that global warming is to blame. Yet according to the November 2003 issue of Nature magazine, “Although it’s tempting to blame the ice loss on global warming, researchers think deforestation of the mountain’s foothills is the more likely culprit. Without the forests’ humidity, previously moisture-laden winds blew dry. No longer replenished with water, the ice is evaporating in the strong equatorial sunshine.”‘ “

Well, now we have “Covid-19” “denial”! Anyone questioning the origins of “the virus”, anyone saying that the World Economic Forum and others are using the virus as a means for a “Great Reset”, anyone questioning the utility of repressive government measures such as facemask-mandating, “lockdowns” etc is a “denier”, a kind of heretic, probably a criminal or even a murderer…

This is that happens when it becomes a heresy to question officially-supported fact-narratives. Beware.

In free countries…”. Quite…

Peter Hitchens still regards the UK as sort-of “free”. Debatable?

Hitler’s policy was resettlement of Jews. Millions did leave Germany, millions left Europe, in the 1930s and early 1940s. USA, UK, Australia, Palestine, and other places too.

What was “unhinged” was the UK and France offering Poland a “guarantee” in 1939 which was not worth the paper on which it was written. That spurious “guarantee” triggered WW2 as surely as the mass mobilizations of 1914 had triggered WW1.

More accurately, the “guarantee” to Poland, when not just ignored by the UK and France on the fateful days of 1-3 September 1939, triggered that disastrous war.

All well and good, but a System MP of that kind will just laugh at critical tweets, emails, letters etc.

Here she is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarah_Owen. Half-Chinese, and a former paid “political adviser” to Alan Sugar [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Sugar#Early_life].

I lived in Cornwall for two years or so (and another two on the Devon side of the Tamar), having from 2002 to 2004 a lease of one of the largest country houses in North Cornwall (seen below in a 1940s photograph):

The immediately above photograph shows me standing by the ballroom carriage entrance. Incidentally, I am not giving a “Hitler” or “Roman” salute, but merely trying to pose “casually” for the picture, as if resting my hand on the stonework. I am not (it goes without saying) a natural photographic subject…

Cornwall offers few people well-paid work; small businesses such as the Cornish Cheese Company (I am not a shareholder, by the way!) need encouragement to succeed or even survive. The geographical location of Cornwall, its relative isolation, increases shipping costs, and so on.

I have no idea what shenanigans are going on in the Bristol Labour Party, but what might have been expected from Keir Starmer? It amuses me to see the parallels between him and that little pissant, “Conservative” Party Cabinet minister, Robert Jenrick: both completely in the pocket of the Jewish lobby, both married to Jewish wives (both of whom are property lawyers), both having children all being brought up as Jewish (eg celebrating the Jewish supremacist religious holidays etc).

Surprising court judgment

It is not for me to say whether or not that peculiar woman, Camila Batmanghelidjh, was in some measure a fraud, or whether what she did was in any measure fraudulent. All that can be said was that very large amounts of State funding were spent and probably wasted on a “motley crew” of inner city London ferals. She was in charge (supposedly).

All one can say for sure is that the government of the part-Jew, David Cameron-Levita, was a complete mess.
