There are so many symptoms of this fundamental malaise:
- Children now have to be fucking bribed to stay in school, and those children who want to learn aren't the ones getting bribed -- instead, we bribe the disruptive cloth-eared twats who spoil it for everyone else, to remain in school.
Criminals are no longer punished for their crimes, they are given the most mild slap on the wrist and scum are given status symbols of their thuggery to parade around in front of other scum, like ASBOs or tagging devices. How fucking limp is that?
Lazy people are encouraged to do nothing except breed more lazy people, as the state dishes out more and more money to people for doing less and less useful work. Why bother to get any kind of job and do something when you can get by comfortably by doing fuck all?
Specious grandiose "projects" like the European Union and various government departments exist to hoover up more and more of our money, building enormous edifices on the shakiest of foundations for no useful reason and influencing our lives in unjustifiable ways.
It may well be that humanity can only ever progress in this way, driving forward in advance, until individual survival and making life bearable are reached at a personal level, and then our inherent stupidity kicks in and we start addressing "greater goals", like caring for the weak and infirm, those people that would naturally be destroyed by the harsh realities of life, leaving humanity stronger and more vibrant. Eventually, we start sapping our resources, people get distracted from achieving things, achievement itself becomes unimportant; the drive to achieve itself is considered suspect and then the whole quagmire implodes, leaving us vulnerable to destruction from another culture, which is still striving to reach those goals and still has the drive and urgency to conquer.
In the same way that Germany lost the war but won the peace, especially in the new, peacefully "integrated" Europe (aka the Fifth Reich), I wonder if Islam, which ostensibly lost the wars of the Middle Ages will do the same thing over the longer term? Historically, it seems that a certain degree of brutality and narrow-mindedness is always a pre-requisite for progress, and by the rather slack mores of Western civilisation, that certainly seems to be the case with Islam. Certainly, the Christian church is about as useful as bitchtits on a man when it comes to providing any kind of moral or other sense of direction these days.
Or will it be a resurgent Asia, with China flexing its muscles and India taking all our jobs? Will we be the first civilisation to hand over our world in the quest for this quarter's numbers? Yes, because we always regard success with suspicion, we must always get our value from our shares, mustn't we?
With the burgeoning advent of state care and control of every aspect of our daily lives, did we really win the battle against communism, or did the evil overlords just get all clever in how they dressed it up? You can't tell me that someone like the Sainted Gordon is not really just an old-school communist in disguise. Nor is that grinning fuck-faced cunt who is out to destroy the symbols and values of a thousand years of history.
All I know is that our need for progress has died, any kind of values have become irrelevant and outmoded, achievement has become something to mock rather than admire, and all focus has become solipsistic. It has become de riguer to regard any kind of success as a form of thuggery over our own ineptitude, rather than look at ourselves and our inadequacies sensibly.
I'm scared to encourage my own daughter to make something of her life, lest the NSPCC or Social Services take her away from me for brutalising her. What fuck is wrong with us?
