A Union flag’s for life, not just for the wedding, writes Melissa Kite in her blog. “If only we could bottle that sense of [national] unity and keep it going a bit longer”, she goes on to say. This is my response:
There was a time when the Union Flag for me too was a symbol of the NATION I identified with as my own, but not any more – not since realising, in a painful and draw-out process of disillusionment, that the MADNESS of mass immigration, into our already, natively and unsustainably, overpopulated country, and the multi-ethnic society it has given rise to (with the indigenous population predicted to become a minority within 50 years!), has destroyed the sense of shared identity I once had with my fellow Britons.
National identity used to have substance to it, despite its abuse and exploitation by our ruling elites, but not any more. It’s just a self-deception that we are obliged, or reasons to STATE and power politics, to persist in for lack of an alternative. As in America, everyone has their own understanding of what the NATION means, without any genuine consensus. There is nothing that binds us all together as a nation other than our dependency (material and emotional) on the mercenary British STATE. What we have is a feigned nation and feigned unity, as will become apparent when put to the test.
For me, the Union flag has become a symbol of a proprietary, mercenary and multi-ethnic British STATE (deceitfully posing as our nation) whose primary purpose is to facilitate “society’s” self-exploitation to the advantage of power, wealth, privilege, “talent” and now, paradoxically, the “disadvantaged” (including millions of 3rd world immigrants).
At the moment we lack an alternative to this pseudo-nation state of ours, but we urgently need to create one, before the lie we are living turns into a nightmare. The way to go about it is peacefully and grass-roots-democratically. We also need to recognise and develop an understanding of the perverted Darwinian nature of our situation, which also explains the madness and self-deception that prevents us from recognising it.
