What the Hell is Going on in Britain

London's walking and cycling commissioner believes that cyclists in the city are too white, male, and middle class. He was considering setting diversity targets for London's cycling population to ensure **progress ** was achieved. I thought this was crazy and searched more for what is going on in Britain.

Tommy Robinson is getting jailed for 13 months on a contempt of court charge for filming outside/reporting on a grooming gang trial and the media was banned from reporting on his case.

A 78-year-old man got arrested for murder after stabbing a burglar to death in his home.

People aren't allowed to carry around anything pointy. The police confiscate pliers, screwdrivers, and scissors. If you aren't 18, you can't buy plastic knives or teaspoons.

Every TV owner must purchase a TV license to fund the BBC, even if you do not watch the BBC. The intimidating advertising is insane.

A hate crime is defined as "Any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on a person's race or perceived race; religion or perceived religion; sexual orientation or perceived sexual orientation; disability or perceived disability and any crime motivated by hostility or prejudice against a person who is transgender or perceived to be transgender", so any accusation is a hate crime if I understand the law correctly.

What is going on?

The end of Britain is what you are watching. Unless they follow through with Brexit they are finished like Europe.

'Unless they follow through with Brexit'

You know by now the debate on whether Brexit is good or bad is over right? It's been accepted that the UK fucked up big time. Now it's just a matter of having the balls to follow through with the fuck up.

Britain and to a lesser extent Western Europe are in the late stages of suicide. Dead nations. It saddens me to think of how many Americans died to protect what has no become a detriment to the world.

Good riddance.

You're either trolling with stupid generalisations or you're an idiot and have no clue what's happening in Britain and the EU. All that wiped away by your so-called 'Paki Gangs'? Come on, if you're going to contribute do it in a decent or marginally meaningful manner, not with idiotic statements a 80-year old bigot would say.

Great video. Think of this whenever liberals speak. Electing Trump gives me hope that Americans will eventually wake up to the enemy in their midst and take back this country. If not, we deserve our fate.

Britain, with the support of the Labour party (Corbynshit and its love for the IRA, Russia, and all kind of terrorists) is going to be a true Londonistan. Former free-trade country today no one seems to remember Maggie's work, and this is sad.
Conservative party needs new faces, new ideas and to be straight and tough like Maggie was

Why does the Left resort to calling any idea they don't like Russian? Historically Russia has been the most left society economically in the past 200 years. Just shows how they're intellectual light weights

Is a classic radical chic mentality

Controversial
Jun 9, 2018

First a reply to the points:

  • The cycling one is ridiculous, I agree
  • Same with the Tommy one
  • IMO, the 78-year old man one is fair. You should defend yourself and unless you know for a fact your life is under threat, murder is considered excessive force. A non-fatal stab wound in the arm or leg to stop the guy before you call the police? Sure. Murder? No. In most cases, burglars just want your TV and if you kill someone for stealing something that is excessive.
  • Not carrying anything point is also ridiculous but unless you need them for your profession, why the fuck would you go for a walk in the park with pliers or scissors? If you're ok with people being banned from carrying these things on planes, you should be fine with people being banned from carrying them around when they aren't needed for a job.
    -I agree the TV licence one is bullshit.
    -The definitions of 'hate crime' are getting blurry and perhaps taken too far, but hate crime or not, crime should be punished.

Three other things to consider here:

  1. Britain isn't going to shit. Headlines like these are not the end of Britain and the influx in immigration certainly isn't the end of Britain.
  2. The EU is not falling apart. There is political tension like in all areas of the world now but the EU is in no danger of collapsing. All this talk about right-wing parties gaining power and then making their country leave the EU is bullshit. It happen only to Britain and it was because they let the stupid and uninformed vote (and the Leave campaign did a better marketing job, but then again marketing to stupid people is easier). As for the the influx of Indians and Pakistanis being seen as a bad thing, have you ever sat down and spoke with some? These are some of the hardest working, politest and most dedicated people around. Do some commit crimes? Of course, but people from all countries do - we all have bag eggs.
  3. Are Americans really involved in this discussion? Really? America has a fucking retarded President, mass shooting problems on a weekly basis, homophobia/xenophobia/racism on an unprecedented scale, mind-numbing ignorance as a population and a denial of globally recognised issues such as climate change like no other country in the world. To add to this, the constant complaint about immigration in the EU is what makes the EU diverse and functional.

Personally think that you are way too bullish on EU performance and influence in the world both economically and politically. Whilst i think a sudden implosion is unlikely, the EU does seem to be falling apart in a gradual process like a death by 1000 cuts - people across the political spectrum are increasing worried about the future of the EU. Also, i think that the large amount of diversity within the EU is one of the key factors holding it back and if you wanted to create some sort of superpower to have any chance to rival the US, then especially the languages would have to be homogenised.

All i can say for your comment on the Brexit vote is how dare they let the stupid people with a different opinion to yourself vote!

Jun 9, 2018

Too bullish? The EU's nominal GDP is only marginally behind the USA's ($19.7Tn vs $20.4Tn) and ahead of China's ($14Tn). How is that bullish? Behind the 2nd largest economy doesn't overstate the influence, it outlines fact. And why doesn't the death by 1000 cuts analogy apply to the US with it's growing political, economic and social tensions? If anything, it's worse there by a lot.
As for my Brexit comment, I will defend it by saying that people who have a DIFFERENT opinion rooted in facts are allowed to vote, not people who have NO OPINION and make decisions that have ramifications for millions across the UK and EU on an emotional whim and don't bother to look shit up and inform themselves. What was the most Google question in the UK following the vote? 'What is the EU? Are you fucking serious? You allow people to vote on an issue they have no knowledge about and call that fair or call that a different opinion? And what about the independent polls carried out after when people realised what they had done? The majority would have voted to remain.

Travelling to the US a few times, I honestly think Americans (men and women) are allergic to logic, reason or objectivity.

The average American must get off the high horse they think they sit on and realise their nation is fucked up on so many levels rather than thinking it's this incredible place with 0 issues and should be an example to the world. And you think immigration is happening only in the EU/UK? In 2016, 13.5% of the US population was composed of immigrants and I would argue that this diversity is what enables the US to work.

UK is a joke. Banning knifes. Zero freedom of speech. The mayor of the city of London excusing terrorism.

Nigel needs to be the PM.

And next they'll ban any religion aside from Islam. Because anyone that offends Islam is naturally a bigot right?

I believe Hayek laid it out in "the Road to Serfdom."

Jun 9, 2018

Interested in this, can you please explain?

Jun 9, 2018

Well, I'll let Hayek speak for himself, and I really do recommend reading the book (it's quite short), but I can summarize.

The Road to Serfdom is a Hayek's warning (made in the 40s) to western liberal democracies, particularly in relation to the UK. Specifically, through a combination of (a) overly zealous notions of social justice and (b) overconfidence in the efficacy of planning, these democracies would devolve into a sort of democratic totalitarianism. In other words, it would lead to fascism.

The left denies that democracy can yield adverse social consequences, but that's where we differ (and it also denies torrential empirical evidence that says the contrary).

Note: read the actual book. Do not rely on other sources, particularly the 5 min summary available on youtube.
