Some people might be wondering and trembling in their boots
Lately, this bolg has been talking about things such as “The British Empire”, “England”, and “nations” and who owns which one, and whether such a thing was “good” or not. The British Empire was simply an accidental vehicle, and perhaps arguably not the optimal one (but merely the noe that was there at the time) for transmitting to All People the hardly-learned (and it was quite hard sometimes) lessons about “How To Live”.
For the avoidance of doubt, I just wanted to say a couple of things which might help to calm people.
Firstly, the Libertarian Alliance is committed to following the Letter Of The Law regarding equality, diversity and vibrantness in Vibrantly-Mutliculturalist New Britain, a Young Country. This country is Vibrant. We speak the truth here. You are all vibrant now, whether it pleases you or not. In the interests of full vibrancy, those of you who have nowt to hide have nowt to fear.
Secondly, when it comes to matters of right of course, we have to decide to decide to say what we think is right. This doesn’t mean that we here vibrate at the wrong wavelength. We do indeed vibrate; really, honestly we do. But our vibrations might be potentially mis-quotable by the quotationably-strategic-focussing-and-quotating-people. But don’t worry, for even when we are wrong, we are right. These blokes quotate the agreed-and-publicly-quoted-terms of public discourse which they have agreed are to be agreed because they said somewhere that these had always been pre-agreed by progressively-thinking people _going forward_. (Socialists always “go forward”.)
Because they said everyone was agreed about all these matters, whatever they might be termed as later on. I expect there’s a term for it like a “framework-Law” or something like that. Oh well never mind.
Well, to get back to basics, some of us have been lying back and thinking of England. This is merely a way of saying, while getting your attention;-
(1) “how and where did liberal ideas originate, and why?
(2) “why was it this lot there on that coldish wet windy damp and boring island, and not some other lot”?
Think, just think, how deeply, deeply sexy libertarianism would have seemed – especially _as seem by, for the first time – … by Ethnic White Anglosphere GramscoFabiaNazi socialist machine-droids…if it had been invented by…
…The Native Zimbabweans…
The current staffs and faculties and so-on of most or all British Universities, plus all those of HarvYale and all those other places whose names I can’t fully pinpoint in order of importance late at night, would be all over the “new Libertarianism Going Forward”.
I am not really fussed at how badly this idea and post will be received, frankly.
One has been called to bed, so one will talk more about the specific legacy of the British Empire at some later time.
