According to Wikipedia, "#Britishness [i.e. British identity] is the state or quality of being British or of embodying British characteristics. It comprises the claimed qualities that bind and distinguish the British people and form the basis of their unity and identity."
According to me, British identity is an Orwellian construct based on lies, deceit & a regime of rewards & intimidation.

To identify with Britain as one's nation is to identify with, i.e. to love, #BigBrother.

Britain is a mercenary #PatronState deceitfully posing as a nation.
This is how Big Brother disguises & legitimises himself, his minions in the British establishment, & the immense power they wield & abuse. He is far more subtle than as portrayed by #GeorgeOrwell in 1984.
In medieval times, all Europe (i.e. White people) were united behind Big Brother in the form of the Church & its teachings, including that of Original Sin, from which only submission to Church authority & ideology could deliver one from eternal damnation.
The splintering & decline of Church authority led to Big Brother, now in the form of the modern #NationState, to seek an alternative ideology to serve as an instrument of socio-political rewards, intimidation & control.
This alternative he found, initially, in the form of fascism & communism, & after their failure & defeat, in the #AntiFascism & #AntiRacism of #LiberalDemocracy, taking them to the opposite but equally insane extremes of Nazi fascism & antisemitism.

@AuronMacintyre @vdare We need to recognise the #NationState for what it is, i.e. has become: an Orwellian construct of lies & deceit, a mercenary #PatronState deceitfully posing as a nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites & the immense power they wield & abuse.
@AuronMacintyre @vdare And this is how #BigBro & his minions now divide & rule us:

Speaking of the ancient Greeks, what became of them & of all the other ancient civilisations, of which there were many?

Many were destroyed by rivals, & those that weren't committed suicide, just as our civilisation is now doing. @epkaufm @WanjiruNjoya @ClarenceHouse @EPoe187
You would think that social science academics would be intensely interested in understanding why ALL the greatest civilisations ultimately committed suicide, since this must surely have profound implications for our own, the greatest of all civilisations - but no.
They are not interested, which is interesting in itself, since most of them have young children or grandchildren, who are going to be profoundly inconvenienced by our civilisation's fall, which there can be no doubt it is on course to do.

London's mayor & the deluded, eminent British journalist, #OrwellPrize winner & militant #AntiRacist, #DavidAaronovitch are both committed to the #GreatReplacement of Native Britons with migrants & asylum seekers of colour, of which there is an endless supply.
That #SadiqKhan wants the #GreatReplacement to proceed as quickly as possible, I can understand, but that @DAaronovitch - himself a Native Briton - should want this too is puzzling, until you realise that he is driven by an ideology, just as his communist parents were.
What is this ideology?

It is a misconceived, #NeverAgain, response of the evils of Nazism, which goes to oppose & equally insane extremes. It goes under the name(s) of post-racial multiculturalism, DIVERSITY, Inclusion & AntiRacism, & the purpose it serves is this: Image

I'm blocked on Twitter by quite a few people, for the terrible sin of trying to engage with them.

I have never blocked anyone & have no intention of doing so, because I don't want to exclude anyone from access to my wisdom.
I expect to be blocked by the woke, with their patently insane understanding of racism, but, to my surprise & disappointment, I have also been blocked by the most prominent champions of anti-wokeism, #JamesLindsay, @ConceptualJames & @HelenPluckrose,
for attempting to engage with them on the meaning of racism.

British & American "representative democracy" is a farce, a stitch-up which ensures government of, by & for the elites, especially in academia, which perpetuates the lie of government of, by & for the people.

The state has always facilitated society's self-exploitation.
I'm not a history buff, but many historical truths are denied or twisted by western academics, as they are in authoritarian regimes. America didn't go to war against a tyrannical British king, but against the British parliament, which continues to abuse its power.
America's founding fathers knew that forming a single nation from different European peoples of the same race would be difficult enough, & thus, in the 1790 Naturalisation Act restricted citizenship to Whites.

And so it has proven. America never became a genuine nation -

#WhiteGenocide, or rather, #WhiteSelfGenocide, is NOT a far-right & White supremacist conspiracy theory, but really happening, in the context of #CivilisationalSuicide, which ALL earlier civilisations, incl. ancient Greece & Rome, ultimately committed.
The historical & present-day evidence for this is overwhelming, but most academics refuse to even consider it, thereby sealing our fate.

Why? Because none is as blind as he/or she who will not see.
Only, it's not too late - not yet - to turn things round, although time is running very short. Soon it will be too late, & the consequences do not bear thinking about, especially if you have young children or grandchildren.
