The Devolution of Man

As a general observation on the rampant riots in London described by LCBrendan below:

What we’re seeing is what happens when generations are taught that there is no such thing as personal responsibility, that nothing is required or even expected of anyone, that it’s always “somebody else’s fault” and that the good things in life are entitlements, rather than something that you earn.

It cannot be otherwise. London is the inevitable end result of Progressive Regressive Utopianism.

Ann Coulter nailed it in one in this article:

The Nazi war machine couldn’t break the British, but the modern welfare state has.

And, lest somebody accuse His Imperial Majesty of wanton Brit-Bashing, the modern welfare state will do the exact same to this country. We’re already a ways down the slippery slope that EUnuchistan has been traveling down for decades, we’re just not at the same point as they are.

Yet.

Thatisall.

I’m not going to accuse you of Brit bashing. It has been obvious we’ve been heading this way for a while. I have been observing a number of bloggers on various coal faces admit to shifting from left to right as a result of having to deal with this sort of thing. Here’s one of them. Winston’s story is one… Read more »

@Draven32:

David Weber fan or is Weber’s PRH closer to revolution time France than I realise?

Boryon says: I sometimes think that the only role left for Britain in this cycle is to serve an example and warning to others. Sadly, it’s an example that is ignored by or lost upon the vast majority of people. From the evils of socialized medicine and the welfare state, to the Sepaku of “tolerating” muslim invasion and self-balkanization, Great… Read more »

The government seeking absolute dominion over ones actions, thoughts and beliefs, the populace held hostage by those criminals allowed to abuse them, and protected from reprisal.
I’d say it’s time to get a new government……but sadly, they have taken all their guns.
Remember that lesson, America….remember it well……

From the begining I have been reluctant to “politicise” the behavior of the looters. I think the source of the behavior lies more with the “gangsta” culture and less with classism. I think the shitheads hide behind the classist excuse and that the majority of the actors are as politically savy as a common. Housefly. I believe this is the… Read more »

Weber fan who can see mirrors of the Dolist state in the current European socialist systems.

One of the most shocking revelations resulting from the London riots for me has been the disturbing realization that Russell Brand is actually literate.

Of course, the article could have been penned by someone else, but whoever wrote his piece is definitely a better writer than Megan McCain!

I’d suggest it’s not really the welfare state, it’s the fact that the police are jokes. They tell you not to report certain crimes because they won’t catch them and the cops don’t want to screw up their rate of solving crimes. They arrest the lawful for defending themselves. One family had a home invasion where a bunch of thugs,… Read more »

@LC TerribleTroy re#7: I agree, the majority of the looters have little/no political views. It is just an excuse. I have seen it mentioned that the Socialist Worker’s Party was out and about, being a bit more organised than the average rioter. The politics, I see as having an underlying role, rather than a direct cause. They sowed the seeds… Read more »

Why is it in most of the photos I see the looters are wearing track suits? What? Did Run DMC finally make its way across the pond? The more I look at this thing the more I think it is a absolute LIE to categorize these people as “protester’s”. Lets get something straight, these people WERE NOT PROTESTING A FUCKING… Read more »

You’ve read that series, too, Draven32? Note that in the books, it took a combination of getting their asses handed to them (by capitalists!), and internal revolt to reform the system. The question is, will it take something quite that drastic to rid us of our own Dolists?

I read Weber, Kratman, Ringo, Correia… and pretty much any other Baen book that sounds decent.

More than 20 years ago, the American sociologist Charles Murray wrote a series of articles about the emerging British underclass. He identified in some of our towns and cities the same trend that had been seen in America: a rapid rise in the number of children born into homes with no resident father and where the principal source of income… Read more »
