  1. Yes they may well do, in which case I would ask them to also apply their logic to outwardly race-identified organisations like the so-called 'black churches'. Why would they not be campaigning against such a rejection of 'diversity' as well as criticising me? Indeed, and this principle has been well-known for centuries with the arrangement of minority groups into 'quarters' within cities. Immigrant peoples and other minorities have often gathered into enclaves together with others of their culture because they find it reduces the sense of culture shock and makes their lives easier. It's a universal effect and not just a race-based issue.
  2. How do we know those are British soldiers?
  3. It wasn't so long ago that 'fundamentalism' was the target of liberals, such as fundamentalist Christians and Muslims. Curious that the f word has surfaced again here. Also use of the word 'permissive' in a negative way, when we we supposed to have transitioned into a liberal 'permissive society' since the 1960s. It's like a form of cognitive dissonance going on here.
  4. So far the extremist list has 5 organisations on it, 3 Muslim and 2 far-right although it may face a legal challenge. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2024/mar/14/gove-says-three-muslim-led-groups-and-two-far-right-to-be-assessed-for-extremism One thing which struck me is how the definition mentions our 'fundamental rights and freedoms'. So what exactly are those? Do we have them written down in our constitution or a bill of rights somewhere? If so then it gives us the chance to draw a line and push back at the intrusions into our 'rights' when the ptb themselves infringe them. Of course if there are no legally recognised fundamental rights and freedoms then the new definition is meaningless. Also the point about replacing our democratic system could mean that campaigns to change our voting system, for example replacing first-past-the-post with proportional representation, could fall under the definition of extremism.
  5. If I started saying that my thoughts aren't mine, it would likely end up with a philosophical train of thought about whether that's true. However, the idea of identifying and challenging negative thoughts and beliefs reminds me of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). I only did it a little bit to help with anxiety, and we were taught about a cycle of sense perceptions >> thoughts >> hormone surge >> anxiety feelings >> more thoughts and the idea was to break the cycle by changing our thought patterns, which (hopefully) results in less anxiety. It was to cut off the supply of energy into the flight/fight/freeze/fawn response. CBT is used for other problems too, so if negative thoughts are the symptom you want help with I can see how this approach would help.
  6. I don't understand, why aren't Manchester & Leeds (ie Lancashire & Yorkshire) in Northern England?
  7. Thanks Bombadil, and it mentions this forum as well as David. Worth a read!
  8. Talking of photo opportunities and publicity stunts, why are we surprised that award ceremonies like the aviation one are used to get into the headlines. That's what they're for, to keep these people inside our heads and promote whichever industry they belong to. The award ceremony itself is a piece of theatre.
  9. Us ethnic Europeans were always diverse with different tribal groupings fighting for their own spaces. So a certain amount of unity is necessary for us to live together peacefully and make a joint stand against external threats. But what's happened is that the forces of collectivisation have been snowballing and becoming too powerful and our civilisation is now dangerously unbalanced. Diversity and multiculturalism is now just a front for a monolithic agenda behind it. Why would Reagan want our differences to vanish and be replaced by "universal aspirations" unless he's a part of the collectivisation too?
  10. People who genuinely deserve criticism are usually hiding behind the innocent folk. So if you hint at criticising a whole group then of course there will be comeback, rightly so. I just wish the situation was more even handed because we aren't all treated the same. I have great respect for anyone attempting to rebuild their own ethnic cultures and tribes in these dark times. Those examples you give do have the advantage that their ancient cultures are well documented with preserved archaeology which they can access for real in museums. Those of us whose culture was more oral or wasn't preserved very well, or deliberately destroyed, face a bigger challenge but more power to them too!
  11. Absolutely. We are being flooded for sure, Russia is part of that and I'm fed up with my people and country being used as the patsy in others' empire building. England (rather than the UK) wasn't a player in the old world order let alone the new one imo. Yet the Anglos are the ones with the biggest targets on our backs and Putin is playing along with this decoy agenda.
  12. This whole migrant storyline might be a bit more convincing if our own leaders put some effort into it, rather than just getting headlines and throwing our money away. It really doesn't look like a two-sided conflict when the Russians are pushing on an open door.
  13. I can't get through the Telegraph paywall EW, but this sounds related to the wagner "regime survival package" being sold around Africa. That's how the BBC puts it anyway, I heard about it on their world service, where the wagner mercenaries prop up regimes in Africa in exchange for Russian access to natural resources. It's how they pay for it these days, and the migrant flooding looks like part of it too. Whether that's in competition with China's belt and road initiative or in connection with it I haven't decided yet. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-68322230
  14. 10 years ago in 2014 it was the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, so it was in all the news. I was having a walk and came across a church graveyard which I noticed had some graves of soldiers who'd died in the war. Nobody I knew but I suddenly felt like praying for them, like back in time, praying for the Gods to alleviate their suffering somehow during that awful time. Obviously I can't help them directly but if the Gods aren't limited by time like us, just maybe it would help. And if the trauma of the past could be reduced a bit, then perhaps that would resonate through the succeeding times. At least that was my intention, goodness knows the world hasn't improved in the last 10 years but then I'm only one person.
  15. It's rather like short selling, used by hedge funds. A tactic used by some fund managers who think a share is overpriced. It doesn't even need to be with their own shares - big firms like pension funds are in on it too because they can take a cut. Basically they scout around for shares they think are overpriced and find someone to borrow them from, for a short period (like a pension fund or insurance company). Sell those in the stock market and then when the price has (hopefully) dropped, buy them again and give them back. All done through a contract and a fee. It still uses the principle of buy low and sell high, but in the opposite order. The argument in favour is that it can burst a bubble before it gets any bigger and reduce the scale of boom & bust. Because a lot of financial markets feed off emotions like greed and fear. When markets go up, people get greedy and start speculating like you say, ie a bull market. By the time regular folks like us realise there's a bubble and it's in the news, someone will have already got there and started short selling. When enough others join in the price peaks and starts to fall then fear replaces greed. I suppose shorting is like greed feeding off fear. All based around herd behaviours and it depends on where you are in the herd, at the front or the back as to your status (how rich you'll get). So there's money to be made out of keeping most of us in a sheep mentality and also it's worth being something of a contrarian - if you have a good sense of timing, a good source of information and a strong stomach. If you fancy a go at making money on falling markets, another way to do it is with spread betting where you can bet on a share index like the FTSE 100 dropping. I've never tried and I advise against it (it's very risky). I do however think shares are worth considering as a long-term investment if you know what you're doing and can cope with the volatility.
  16. What do you think of ideas that Christianity was influenced by other influences including Greek and Egyptian mystery religions? At the very least the Gospels were written in Greek and I saw a documentary about early Christian art showing the similarity of images of Jesus with a halo and Apollo the sun God. It doesn't mean there was a conspiracy, during Roman times they had the "interpretatio Romana" when they associated deities from different pantheons together.
  17. Yes it's clear to me. The Catholic (and Celtic) churches couldn't live together with the Pagans, or each other over here too, and being essentially the Roman Empire at prayer they had all the state power to enforce their supremacy. The Romans left but Catholicism eventually triumphed, till along came the Church of England* which is our national church, but by then the Catholics and Protestants were fighting each other. There's different "mood music" in each church, different community, culture, and variations in the spiritual path that despite all the decline they aren't considering mergers between the denominations. Sorry to hear about your struggles with relating to your God. I've been on a winding spiritual path myself and approaching into paganism atm. However, some years ago after lots of ups and downs, the sense of "struggle" fell away and my path became lighter, my meditation almost effortless. Years of chasing goals and experiences was replaced by seeing the truth that's already here. Long after I left Christianity I discovered the meaning of that quote about becoming as little children. Not that life as a whole is free from struggle! "Progress" however is for my secular life. * Nowadays dubbed the Tory party at prayer!! The C of E ultimately failed as our ethnic church because of the class system here. The elite just love being elite!!
  18. Thanks, some great food for thought here too. You're not the only one, I've heard theories about the human brain containing more of an interface or communication device with the mind-stuff held elsewhere, so that dementia for example doesn't mean the erasure of the memories but is a breakdown of the link between body and mind. I'm open to different ideas but would say that there's also no evidence of the alternative theories either. Some people claim to visit the akashic records but that's still in my undecided basket.
  19. Thanks Mac. I realised some years ago that end-of-the-world type armageddon stories in religions are actually just metaphors for the end of a culture, its replacement by a new order or empire. For example the Biblical Book of Revelation can be seen as a coded description of the Roman suppression of Jewish culture and the destruction of the Temple following the uprisings in the 1st & 2nd Centuries. The mythology gets rehashed in the 20th and 21st C by evangelicals for example to refer to the decline of Christianity in the West. The 'global warming' >> 'climate change' >> 'climate crisis' storyline we've been fed over the past few generations looks very like another instance of a crypto-religious prophecy being used as a coded description of an actual agenda being put into action. The NWO will be fully revealed when the ptb announce that they have finally got the climate crisis under control following all the restrictions they had to put on us, as they will need to explain why the world hasn't actually ended and humans are still around. On the other point about the changing vision of traditional British institutions, I have the occasional hopeful moment. We went to a pantomime in January and a rock concert last month, both in large venues filled only with people of the same race as me, a rare experience nowadays. Maybe events like those will be targeted in due course but for now it makes me feel my culture is still worth trying to save.
  20. Mum & Dad wanting to have some free time back again
  21. "Multipolarity is just a code word for globalism without white people" Reminds me of another comment I saw that multiculturalism is just a temporary phase of history when one culture is being replaced by another. As an Anglo-Saxon myself I think it's high time for us to regroup and start rebuilding our community from the grassroots up. I get tired of only hearing my tribe mentioned when other tribes are putting us down (by targetting the elites), rarely by Anglos ourselves. It's almost as if the White British identity is promoted as a way of severing us from our roots, even Celts don't seem to have that problem. At least not yet, but I'm watching the situation in Ireland with interest.
  22. In our modern scientific reductionism we do divide up the body into parts, in perhaps the same way as an engineer divides up an inorganic object into parts like a car. We have doctors who specialise in hearts, lungs, brains, bones etc. Because the total amount of medical knowledge is too much for a single person to know it all; when your GP reaches the limits of their ability they refer you to a specialist. What you're speaking of with wholes divided into parts which are themselves wholes reminds me of Arthur_Koestler's_Holons a useful concept. I agree a human body is an entity, but so is a kidney. Neither entity can exist without its particular environment - humans exist on our planet with all our social and environmental relationships like families, societies, food, air, water etc. We know the brain has many functions we aren't aware of like how it controls hormones, heart rate, breathing etc. I suggest that thoughts originate as energetic processes which can move across from an unaware area like the brain stem to an aware area like the neo-cortex. But it's just a theory. There's no 'I' apart from what's called the executive function. Edit. Another example of unconscious mind is memory. We hold a vast amount of memories, knowledge and learning which is hidden untill we 'remember' or 'recall' it into conscious awareness when we need it. It would be hopeless to be aware of all our memories all the time! A bit like a computer calling up information from backing memory into the processor RAM as required. Thought is essentially a string of language and imagery pulled up from the subconscious memory into conscious awareness. But there must be some process choosing which words and images to string together.
  23. Interesting, and I'm out of likes. If there's no entities, then everything is an absolute oneness and there's no room for relationships. But as soon as We create a boundary or distinction, we simultaneously create the relationships and connections between the parts. Parts + relationships = process. Then you can carry on with the reductionist dividing and splitting up, "creating" an ever more detailed network of processes, as with the metaphor of Indra's Net. I'm not sure if there's a limit to this, scientists haven't yet found the ultimate indivisible building blocks of reality so it's possible to say that it's 'process all the way down'. Do you believe in the existence of the subconscious or unconscious mind? That's one explanation of where thoughts and feelings come from. That what we call the consciousness is only a fragment of the total mind which is much vaster.
  24. Firstly, thanks for the comprehensive and detailed posts, and I hope you'll understand that I can't reply to them all. So here goes with one point to get started. I don't want any personal information and I don't know if you're Greek, but if you believe in ethnic nationalism (as I do), then does it follow that you would favour your ethnicity's own religion rather than an imported one, especially one which originated from a culture which you clearly have issues with. Universal religions like Catholicism and Islam are pulling away from ethnic nationalism aren't they, and the Orthodox varieties are more of a compromise. Isn't Paganism a closer match to ethnicity because each culture has its own pantheon? Why not promote the Greek pantheon of Hellenism? Looking at it from a polytheistic pov, the idea of a chosen people doesn't make sense because each people has its own Gods. But if you choose one pagan God like Yahweh and promote him to monotheistic status, then the tribe which that God belongs to ethnically gets chosen too. Because that tribe's whole package comes with it; the mythology, history, language, geography even. But as you say, free choice for us all.
  25. People use words like 'simulation' and 'matrix' quite loosely these days without really explaining it. Does it mean that the real 'me' is actually imprisoned somewhere within a 5-sense virtual reality bodysuit which has entirely dictated my perception since birth? In that case, everyone else in my world is a computer simulation including this forum that's telling me I'm in a simulation! That's like a virtual solipsism On the other hand, if you other folks out there are real and the simulation is only partial, there's more hope. Perhaps this world and all its people is physically real but our beliefs are heavily manipulated so that it's our 'world view' which is the simulation.
