Upside-Down

The Upside-Down Morals of Today’s Britain by Bruce Bawer.

Britain! It’s the nation that, during World War II, stood alone under Churchill in defense of its own freedoms, the nation whose first woman prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, stood shoulder to shoulder with Ronald Reagan during the decisive last act of the Cold War. But of course, as Reagan himself famously reminded us, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. … It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

Alas, even Thatcher, who concurred fervently with that proposition, was unable to stem the long, red tide of postwar socialist brainwashing that transformed Britain from a fortress island, proud of its heritage of freedom, into a technocratic welfare state that trains its people to revere not liberty but “diversity” and the NHS. Yes, Brits voted for Brexit, which shows that at least a slim majority cherish representative democracy and national sovereignty. But their major political parties, their schools and universities, and their “respectable” news media (notably the BBC) are at least as crippled by multicultural ideology as are their counterparts in any other nation in Europe.
