    That's the issue, and it boils down to envy and greed. Natural instincts as the higher thinkers say, that we must elevate ourselves from. You can see the branch the SJWs have taken. Another person I follow is Thomas Sowell, he had all the disadvantages that POC say they encounter. He also had the opportunities that we allow everyone. He took those opportunities, didn't take the easy route of laying blame on white privilege and doing nothing. I'm sure at time all of us have had things go against us, somehow or other we overcome them and continue. Some say its luck and good fortune, you know the less I blame someone else for my woes and take responsibility for what happens to me the luckier I get.

    The more you know the more you know you don't know. I haven't finished the article yet, just pulled from it some ideas to shape my thoughts on my reply to this topic. Science has an imperfect understanding so far. One of the big problems is that as a race Humans are very adaptable. That's one of the reasons I find JP's so compelling, what makes us do what we do? Are we born with predispositions that make us form the ideas we follow, is that why in some the predilection for good is so much stronger than the desire for evil? Are we the result of our upbringing, environment and culture. How do our primal instincts shape our views. There is so much influence and overlap, The age old question nature or nuture, the ideal of the perfect man? Anyway off to do some gardening whilst I ponder the nature of mankind and the universe, as you do.

    Its not dead, it is being subsumed I fear. That is why we have to do all we can to bring it back into its ascendant.

    I was reading this morning about the theories of race and classification of Humans after a comment made on another thread. The post listed five types of humans classified by skin colour. White wasn't one of the skin colours listed and it led me to look into the term Caucassian. That led to the work of the late 18th century and early 19th century scientists who attempted to classify humans into racial groups https://www.britannica.com/topic/race-human. TMT you missed out how Irish people were treated in America in the 17th and 18th centuries. The article I'm reading says "led to an image of the Irish as "savages" who were incapable of being civilized". (Was it because they were Gingers?, (some pretty redheaded Irish girls in another thread ). I must congratulate you on your post listing a perfect refutation of arguments that slavery of black negros was a unique phenomenon demonstrating that white Europeans consider themselves superior to black people. We naturally group with other people who are similar in appearance, language, culture and attitude, this group preference is I think the reason why there is anti white discrimination building up. It is unquestionable that the advantages of the modern world have predominantly resulted from the actions of western Europeans. As a consequence we are accused of advantaging our race by disadvantaging other races. Our scientific achievements, our literature, arts, philosophy they lead the way in human endeavour. Above all we have an underlying philosophy that all men are created equal. It seems our left leaning politicians have forgotten that.

    Oh my goodness, how laughable that interviewer was. As for the woman guest how does she think legislation will bring about equality of outcome?

    Still there when I look on my PC using MS Edge.

    Will our politicians be able to resist their desire to assist?

    Italian desperation ?

    From the comments: "These economic migrants to Italy are exactly the same, both in motivation and desperation as the millions of Italians that have migrated to other Countries in the last Century so it is ironic to see the Italians getting hot under the collar now." It is this that conflicts with my humanity. Each individual has a desire to better their life. The promise of a better future shines out to them from the shores of the developed west. They seek to improve their lives as many of us have done, working overseas, or emigrating and setting up new lives. Good for them I think. Once they arrive, unless they have the education, training, skills and aptitude then they find that living here is not the same as they most likely dreamed it would be. Only the most fortunate, industrious, enterprising are able to find decent opportunities. I don't deny them that. For those that don't what are their options, exploitation, hunger, danger, a life of crime to survive. That's the downside that my humanitarian liberalism has to realise. Its not that I'm heartless or cruel, I wish them well, not if they endanger my way of life. Our governments were established to protect us from threats, external and internal, of disruption to our peaceful enjoyment. To go about our everyday lives with little interference unless necessary, for our part we accepted the social contract, although we may grumble about the inevitable restrictions that we often encounter. In a perverse way our governments and authorities are the ones being cruel by allowing these peoples to enter and crowd our country and suffer the indignities of their daily life as they are unprepared for our ways. Our efforts to help are becoming more and more damaging to ourselves. I try to come to terms with my growing dislike of immigration and the fear of the changes that more arrivals will bring about. I question whether I am imaging the outcome will be as my worst fears or whether I should be optimistic about the eventual outcome. I see no major disruption in the town where I live, I do see it in other towns and cities I visit.

    Islamification of Europe

    With natives like that it would explain why the Romans left Scotland. The Geordies couldn't have been anywhere near as bad.

    Seems to me they were right then. We never learn.

    Islamification of Europe

    I drove through central London last week, I noticed several Police officers armed with automatic rifles at various locations, the first at Kensington High Street. FFS why is security needed in a shopping street. Its not a government or other location to be guarded. We won't let them change our way of life, not!

    I opened a current account with them to get the slightly higher interest on a small balance and also opened a monthly saver. They well and truly messed up. I've now got to go to a local branch to resolve the interest on the now matured monthly saver being far less than the 5% advertised when I opened it. Anyone know how they screwed up their computer systems. Was it outsourced to another continent?
