"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Sunday Reflection

From his radio programme on the 29th.

  1. Chilling, and worse, every word is true. But, although the light is indeed dimming, need it be an extinction or could it just be an eclipse.

    One thing is certain - we need moral rearmament and we need it now; if anyone is unwilling to help free our nation from the grip of the 4th Reich - sorry, the EU - and our new muslim masters let them stand - or be pushed - out of the way.

    England - not some bastardised UK - WILL be great again!

    By the way, I'm not keen on your choice of music today - these things will happen from time to time.

  2. It is true, Opsimath, and when you put it together with everything else that's happening it's enough to make a grown man weep. It's time for the decent folk, the moral majority, to make their voices heard and kick these politicians out.

    :-) I haven't posted any music today, is that what you mean or have I misunderstood?

  3. No - it's just me, thinking that for some reason you thought The Kinks worthy of being included in your Sunday Reflection - I should have known otherwise!

    My wife loves them, but they are a bit off for Sundays, even if it happens to be Halloween - apologies for any misunderstanding, which was entirely mine.

  4. Ah! I see. No, the music was Savage's choice. SR is mainly to give pause for thought and reflect on the changes that have happened to Britain, particularly England, over the past decades. For the most part the music has been incidental except the exquisite Byrd/Tallis who appear in their own right. I'll see what I can find for next week - it won't be the Kinks ;-)

  5. He certainly got that absolutely right, GV, as well as the reason for it!

  6. Yes, he's spot on, Spidey. I could hardly bear listening to it, it's so true it's painful. It evokes such a mix of emotions in me - incredibly sad/incredibly angry.
