Why Britain has become such a degenerate country
I wrote the following regarding the British judge who let four Somali women free after they had committed a gruesome racial attack on a young Englishwoman on a street, on the grounds that as Muslims they were could not be held accountable for their behavior under the influence of alcohol:
This is not an event in the life of Britain. This is the rotting of the stinking corpse that once was Britain. And there’s much rot in the corpse of a great nation, many, many victims yet to come, incalculable human misery, yet to come.Lydia McGrew quoted the remark at her blog. This led to a further thought and I sent it to her. My own e-mail with its tentative and exploratory ideas would not be worth posting in itself; I post it only because it leads to Lydia’s much more cogent and informed thoughts on the reasons for Britain’s decline and collapse.
How much of the rotten quality of today’s Britain comes from the “English disease,” male homosexuality, which is so widespread among English elites? It seems to me that a plausible case could be made that the English effeteness which metastasized as the tolerant openness to everything that is destroying Britain is organically related to English homosexuality. I’m not suggesting that homosexuality is the essential cause; all these modern liberal developments would have happened, one way or another. But in the English case, it seems to me that the particular flavor of their disgusting liberal cowardice and unmanliness which has made the British elites so utterly contemptible would seem to bear a relationship to the English disease. The British elites are all either actual homosexuals, or “spiritual” homosexuals.Lydia McGrew replied:
I’m inclined to think that both the British excessive openness to homosexuality (which has been around for a long time) and the British openness to immigration are perversions of the British idea that runs like the saying of Terence: “I am a man; nothing human is alien to me.”
