It’s not an offence, it’s just that you have no solution other than to counter rabble rouse. If I have little patience for one lot of rabble rousers you think I’ll have patience for others? To me they are two sides of the same extreme coin. I’ve also said I don’t share your pessimism, despite the same concerns. We will not go to the brink, the world is far to connected, and people are switched on. How many times do I have to say it’s important to be vigilant but not pessimistic? A few 1000 posts or a few 1000 more? The teenage angst, anger and nihilism you exude turns people off your message. The real concerns get drowned in all the noise. Those who rage but make no significant personal difference are no better than the far right bitters. It’s just my opinion. Speak to your politician, lobby or joint a special interest charity. Vote. Mount a legal case. Whistleblow. Join medicin sans frontieres or amnesty international if you feel the need to be more directly involved. Become a politician. Just do it. It’s not just the Muslims, it’s also the UK tabloid press, post 911. Campaign for more responsible journalism or mount a legal case. A few previous posts ago, you said you are not a fan of revolution because it spills blood so what in your view is a counter movement? In the US it’s the democrats, in the UK those who don’t agree with the Tories or UKIP ( and this is not just labour). We have remainers too, but that issue was lost and we are now looking to get the best possible compromise for the country sadly and have MPs vote on it. We are where we are with Brexit, and must move forward however stupid a decision, it was. If another vote was available, I’d vote, but in the absence of that a compromise it will be, unless you are advocating some sort of blood letting revolution (which you claimed previously, you are against. As for Marxism, pull the other one. Any anthropologist will tell you social structures and hierarchies are part of the human condition. Even in the USSR, hierarchies existed, to stifle the aspirations or ambitions of those who wanted to dream. Marxism cannot work as the moment one in the leaderless commune decides they want more they will bring about anarchy or have to be stopped - for the ‘greater good’ as happened in the Eastern bloc and USSR etc. So great in theory unworkable in practice. I don’t have a problem with supporting the underdog or calling out injustice, just that there are myriad ways to do it other than rage against the machine (all the time), IMHO - in that we differ and will do so for as long as we live.
