“Culture Wars” – Again!

Summary:
New Scientist magazine hopes that the UK will be saved from the "Culture Wars" and the BBC mentions "Culture Wars" several times in one day.  The "Culture Wars" are supposed to begin with attitudes to issues such as sexual orientation and race. This is where we should start to get puzzled.  A very small percentage of the population is gay, lesbian or bisexual:Most people in the UK have accepted equal rights for gay, lesbian and bisexual people.  Hard though it may be for Londoners to believe, a very small percentage of the population of England and Wales is black, where black means black African or black Caribbean origin. "Amongst the 56 million residents in England and Wales, 86% were White, 8% were Asian/Asian British and 3% were Black/African/Caribbean/Black British." (2011

New Scientist magazine hopes that the UK will be saved from the "Culture Wars" and the BBC mentions "Culture Wars" several times in one day. 

The "Culture Wars" are supposed to begin with attitudes to issues such as sexual orientation and race. This is where we should start to get puzzled.  A very small percentage of the population is gay, lesbian or bisexual:

Most people in the UK have accepted equal rights for gay, lesbian and bisexual people.  

Hard though it may be for Londoners to believe, a very small percentage of the population of England and Wales is black, where black means black African or black Caribbean origin. "Amongst the 56 million residents in England and Wales, 86% were White, 8% were Asian/Asian British and 3% were Black/African/Caribbean/Black British." (2011 census).  

2011 Census Data

Within the black population only about a sixth have ancestors who underwent slavery in the British Empire over 200 years or more ago because less than a third of Black British come from places where slavery was practised and many Caribbean black people were resettled, rescued slaves freed by the British from elsewhere.  Yet the "Culture Wars" portrays black people generally as victims of slavery.  Most people in the UK have accepted equal rights for black people.

So we have this apparently huge "Culture War" allegedly about a small number of people whose equal rights have already been mostly settled by law.  This means that the "Culture War" cannot be about the minorities that it claims to be about.  

Most people in the UK have accepted equal rights for black, gay and lesbian people.  There is no pressure in the UK to ban gay and lesbian behaviour or to discriminate against black people.  The "Culture War" is about something else.

What is happening is that one part of society is requiring that another part of society speak and think as they demand.  This demand to control all of society is not about gay and lesbian rights, it is about control.  It is about elevating the "anti-isms" to the status of moral imperatives that all must obey.  ID politics is the new religion.

Who are these proponents of controlling the speech and thoughts of their fellow citizens?  There are the usual band of immature students and idiot academics who believe that we would all be happier if democracy were ended and the "enlightened" were in control. These people have always been around but have been heavily funded by government now that they are hiding behind labels such as postmodernist and poststructuralist.  What is also new is that the mass media have chosen to back their idea of controlling individual speech and thought Why?

Individual journalists, script writers and programme editors clearly feel that racism and sexism are still major issues, when, as demonstrated above, this is not the case.  Zero hours contracts, low wages, high house prices, sky high rental prices, lack of retraining opportunities, sustainability etc. are all real issues that are being edged out of coverage by the mainstream media in their "Culture Wars".

So who is financing and diverting the journalists etc?  Perhaps it is worth pointing out that the UK is always pilloried for racism and the EU is never mentioned when direct experience of discrimination is almost as high in the EU as in the US and the UK is a relative paragon:

What group of people wishes to undermine the confidence of British citizens in British society and wants to protect the EU from criticism?  

It is also the case that migration is a major issue for those who wish to control their fellow citizens.  The transfer of 600,000 people a year from mostly poorer countries to the UK is probably the biggest single source of the increase of UK greenhouse gas emissions and a problem for global emissions, it results in the UK population increasingly exceeding its sustainability limits (the UK can only feed about 45m people from its own resources), it increases rental and hence property prices and creates a barrier to real wage growth.  However, the controllers would describe all these factors as the ideas of racists.  They wish to use the fake morality of ID politics to declare whole areas of the national political debate to be racist.

A pattern is emerging.  No borders, free movement of labour and the consequent transfer of trade to multinational corporations are the principle objectives.  It is as if the mainstream media are owned or controlled by people in the pay of large corporations.  Indeed, the mainstream media are owned or controlled by people in the pay of large corporations.

The corporate agenda is globalist and directed at terminating the desire for independence in the UK and USA. The Internationalists have put Keir Starmer (Trilateral Commission member) in charge of Labour and Joe Biden (historical member of Council on Foreign Relations) in charge of the USA.

It is not just the Multinational Corporations who are revelling in the diversion of politics away from reality to ID politics.  The main foot soldiers of this movement are the Postmarxists, whose internationalist agenda meshes with that of the Corporates, and who have been selected to be mouthpieces for ID politics in their fantasy "Culture War".

The foreign power that is providing huge momentum is China.  China is viewed as the promised land by Maoist groups such as BLM (the Black Liberation Movement whose slogan is "Black Lives Matter").  In the past decade China has risen to control the majority of international trade.  This dominance means that it also dominates multinational corporations.  It needs the democracies to abandon democracy and to adapt their populations to thinking and speaking according to the edicts of central government as they do in China.

This is a pivotal decade for the Western powers.  In the UK we need to bank the gains made on equality and change focus to sustainability and independence. Most importantly we need to realize that Multinational Corporations are not independent of influence by hostile foreign powers.
