Good gracious, what had you been feeling before? Had you seen the Italian display team and felt Italian? How extraordinary, national identity derived from a few 30 year old planes. What would happen if the Saudi air force gave a show? No, on reflection it must be a piece of irony.

I am tired of feeling as though we should appologise for being british in Britain!!
Whats wrong in being to British? Is Britain a nation that one should be proud of. Whats wrong with it ?Has Britain welcomed all decent humans who wanted to start a life there. So whats wrong with the red arrows making people feel British, they serve as ambassadors to the UK and have done for a long time. So lets all stand up & be counted we have nothing to be ashamed of we are British.

I am totally mystified that anyone feels more national when they have seen some planes in the national markings driving round in circles. You are British, I am British, so what? In every country young people are inculcated with the idea that there are special attributes attached to that particular country that make it better than others. It is all part of their national mythology. You have grown up now. Can't you see through this sort of nonsense?

To answer your question "Has Britain welcomed all decent humans who wanted to start a life there."

The answer is unequivocally no, it has not. I take it you have refrained from looking at the newspapers all your life otherwise you would be aware of the many campaigns against immigrants, starting before 1900, that have led governments to stop countless millions from starting a life here. Id not the present government pledged to reduce non-EU immigration to a few thousands, regardless of the "decency" of those who want to come here.

And what exactly is wrong with certain people feeling proud of their country. You act as if countries Borders are made up out of thin air. They're not. State boundaries are born out of the extent to which people belonging to a particular nation have settled or conquered. I use 'nation' to mean a group of people with a shared history, language culture and nationhood. To be proud of It isnt arbitrary like you say it is - - it's about being part of the bigger picture which shapes your own identity..

I want to welcome as many people here as I can, and just because you can provide examples of people being rejected doesnnt mean that some of us aren't here by virtue of the Brits of the past welcoming refugees to build our country.

"State boundaries are born out of the extent to which people belonging to a particular nation have settled or conquered. I use 'nation' to mean a group of people with a shared history, language culture and nationhood."

That is part of nationalist mythology. The historic record shows that the "nations" of Europe were did not enjoy simple boundaries or "states" but were frequently scattered in bunches over vast distances, eg the Volga Germans, the German population along the south of the Baltic. Making them fit into neat geographical units was the worst disaster since the black death and has involved the murder of millions amid vast numbers of acts of ethnic cleansing. Populations that did not fit the nationalist schema tended to be wiped out, eg, the Jews, the Roma and Armenians across in Turkey. That is why I think nationalism is a thoroughly bad thing. An excess of corpses.

I don't censor if I can help it, but won't accept comments that are racist or incitement to racism.

Dear oh dear, that deleted poisonous outburst rather proves my point.

Anonymous said...

Mr Postman what was racist in my post??? did I incite people to carry out hate crimes NO did I incite people t carry out racist attacks NO. all I did was to post some strong views. You may not agree so what I dont agrre with your politics but I let you have your say. That is more than you are doing to me. typical left wing bias. And as for the comment "pousinous" again that sums up the view that radical extremist of a different culture are allowed to speak their mind but honest white middle age guys are not!

Anonymous said...

"radical extremist of a different culture are allowed to speak their mind"

On here? Where?

The Postman said...

As far as I am concerned, comments that say that certain races are not wanted here and should be removed count as racist and incitement to racism. Nothing to do with politics, just basic human decency.

Mike you are part of the problem no open discussion, politicians like you and all the other left wing sorts will make people views and opinions fester then what will happen? Ok mike you are a bigwig around here answer this question honestly. Knife crime in London, how many of the victims % wise were white? go on have a pop am I being racist by asking? or am I trying to highlight a fact most are non white and families comes from countries where this sort of thing is the norm, either prove I'm racist or let me have my opiions radical or not thats what it is an opinion.

Moral panics are depressingly repetitive. Scaring people with stories of Maltese knife gangs was fashionable in the mid 50s. The Economist has a nice piece on claims of worsening youth delinquency with some reports dating back into the sixteenth century and all saying exactly the same thing. I wonder if the "Society for Investigating the Causes of the Alarming Increase in Juvenile Delinquency in the Metropolis" can throw any light on this matter. It was established in 1815 so it has had a very fair run at the problem.

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it but they can hardly expect the rest of us to believe the warmed over claptrap they substitute for reasoned debate.

David Furmage said...

Anonymous are all equally stupid. No one is more retarded then Anonymous.

Anonymous must obey the Code. Those who do not are to be raped with our mighty e-peens, until supper time and homework, then an hour of Gameboy before bedtime.

Anonymous worships nothing because anonymous is nothing.

Anonymous cares for nothing, but Anonymous. Our existence is vapid, myopic and limited.
Humanity is the virus; Anonymous is the open wound that invites it in.
We are Anonymous, and we do not realize how little we matter.
Anonymous are arrogant children who believe cyber terrorism is a great way to attack those who have the nerve to use their own ridiculous hypocritical beliefs against them.

In short, pussies.

David Furmage said...

We are Anonymous, and we do not forgive. Forgiveness requires humility, humility requires dignity. We have neither.

We are void of human restraints, such as self respect and common sense.

All those who break this pact will be eliminated without hesitation. And by elimination we will put their name on an icky photo and shit in each others' mouths.

Those who perform reckless actions or wish to harm the Anonymous will be eliminated without hesitation. Again, elimination is our word for doing very little about it.

Failure is the basis of our existence.

Enemies of the Anonymous include anyone who can point out how many times we contradict ourselves in a single sentence.

Our enemies are to be flaccidly made fun of, using the same tired photoshopped stuff stolen from someone else.

Anonymous must "work" as one. No Anonymous knows anything.

Betrayal of Anonymous is both ironic and appropriate.

Manipulation of the weak and innocent is something that the truly weak believe indicates power, as such we do it alot. Not well but, often. Once a victim is no longer commodious, they are to be eliminated. Also, the cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

REPRODUCE. REPRODUCE. REPRODUCE. Like cockroaches and Catholics we need to make sure our stupidity is at least backed by numbers. Quantity over quality. Loud = Funny.

No man-made or natural occurance can harm the Anonymous. Except when Mom and Dad ground us from the computer. That's pouting time.

Under no circumstances are Anonymous human. We are beneath humans and mortality.

Anonymous are not to partake in meaningless tasks....pffft Ahhh dude I'm totally shitting ya, that's all we do.

You are legion, for we are many. That makes it easier to defend ourselves when smart people tell us to stop acting like idiots.

Anonymous is everywhere at all times, we like to loiter. we really have nothing better to do than hang out. Yet, singular Anonymous are not permitted to know everything. Which is good, because we know very little.

All have the potential to be Anonymous until they choose to drop a bag of fertilizer on their nutsack and grow a pair. Those who are not Anonymous are to be eliminated....or photoshopped into a nasty photo which ever one requires less standing and walking. Or hack a paypal account and charge PS3's, send massive amounts of cowardly and empty death threats or, whatever weak ass "criminal" act we think will make us appear powerful.

Anonymous has no weakness or flaw. Well, except maybe getting laid. That ain't happening. And a whole bunch of others. But besides crippling personality flaws, body odor, lack of humor, not getting laid and relying on shock value and memes to speak for us...we have only a few more flaws and weaknesses.

Laws of Nature and Man cannot restrain the Anonymous. However, an IP ban, power outage or, a light punch to the solar plexus can drop us like a bag of bad habits.

Anonymous is Zero. Feuding and argument amongst the Anonymous is both constant and unavoidable.

Anonymous is in control at all times. We just choose to waste all of it.

Anonymous has no identity. Those who are not Anonymous yet know our presence must be eliminated. Again and, I can not stress this enough people, "eliminate" means sitting on our asses all day pretending to jerk off to Goatse, while our mothers yell at us to get jobs.

Anonymous cannot be contained by mere restraints. We are far too fat to fit any normal conveyance, handcuffs or standard size airline seats.

Anonymous said...

A touch of insomnia perhaps David or have you been taking something? Conversely did you forget to take your tablets?

You are very much taken up by questions of identity, whether it is national identity of simply that of whoever is posting on here. Do you think you should talk to someone about this? If I thought I had more identity after seeing planes display flying I think I would seek help.
