Since the western political upsets of Brexit and the election of Donald J. Trump as POTUS in 2016, society is still fully immersed in a heightened culture war and a quest for social, economic, and political status has left society’s ability to ‘get along’ in tatters. Continue reading Pure majoritarianism and its role in worsening an already inhospitable political landscape
Let’s face it, 2020 has been an utter shambles. First, the threat of WW3, then an extremely transmissible virus sweeps the globe and just as recently, the tragic deaths of at least 4 black Americans ripping through the social fabric. Having successfully sparked the resurgence of the #BLM ‘cultural revolution’, it’s recently kicked into another gear and fractious racial tensions among western powers are astonishingly high. Continue reading How the Democratic party continue to maintain a monopoly over the ‘black vote’
Ending what’s now gone on to be a now five-part blogging vent-fest about BlackLivesMatter, it’s important we talk about change. Change comes in many forms. If you’re a reasonably young, university-educated person, chances are you’re automatically seeing your change come in the form of your ‘woke’ upper/middle class, university-educated peers striving to be the most intersectional in their quest to (or at least to be seen to) appease their peers and the BLM crowd. Continue reading The US political ‘status quo’ is what is standing in the way of change, not systemic racism.
Whilst running on the theme of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, it might be worth turning our attention to the latest ‘woke’, social justice warrior’s contribution to societal betterment. It’s something that can only be called ‘Positive Profiling’ (hope that’s not already been coined). But despite the onset of good intentions, it’s every bit as discriminatory, insidious and borderline racist as the very backwards ideologues they often seek to condemn through Continue reading This new phenomenon of ‘Positive Profiling’ is the beginning of a societal regression for the black community
As the latest racial war begins to reach a fever pitch, we’ve seen a radical new wave of attempts to enforce change with charged rhetoric and trot out racial doctrine in which those on the ‘right side of history’ will conform with no challenge or question of validity. Like every movement, it draws scrutiny – and rightly so! Continue reading #BlackLivesMatter is in danger of missing opportunities for real change – we need to regroup
Diversity. The word we’re told we need. The word we’re told to accept, encourage, and explore and rightly so! Yet still, amongst the latest justified outrage over the unlawful killing of George Floyd and the under-sentencing of Derrick Shauvin, the veil has been lifted on the marked assault on intellectual diversity. Continue reading The Forgotten Blacks – How an emerging conformist ideology is leaving allies behind
Shocking footage emerged of four police officers ‘arresting’ 46-year-old George Floyd from Minneapolis; one of them can be seen kneeling on his neck and crushing his airways in the damning video clip. This has set Twitter and social media ablaze with controversy and has firmly re-ignited the police brutality debate which, has seemingly become a bi-monthly occurrence these days. Continue reading The death of George Floyd is a true tragedy – but let’s not let hysteria fuel this dangerous narrative
As we’re approaching the tail end of the virus outbreak now, the claws are out as a new wave of politicization nears its peak. Amongst the fallout of the recent Dominic Cummings scandal, his excursion trips up to Durham is the perfect cover (at least temporarily) to mask the dismal performance in Britain’s care homes. Continue reading The Conservative government’s failure of Britain’s care homes
With home secretary, Priti Patel and the rest of the Conservative party getting lambasted by the left over their latest House of Commons victory of the resurged immigration bill, it’s prompted the middle class ‘remainiac’ crowd to go on the attack. Continue reading Middle class elitism rears its ugly head over the latest immigration bill
30 million in the USA. 6.5 million in the UK. Over a million in Spain. 195 million projected worldwide. I’m talking about job loss and almost all of them have or will have been lost due to the spread of the novel Coronavirus. Continue reading COVID-19 has triggered the debate for Universal Basic Income – but is it the way forward?
