Freedom Through Unity?

Unity in the Community Logo2Can unity can achieve freedom? Yes, of course it can – governments are supposed to be servants of the people, after all. But that only works when the people stand together as one group, one voice. If all a government hears is the clamouring from a myriad of different groups, all demanding their own, individual, wants and needs, then the overall message will be lost in the tumult. A government will then just ignore the commotion, dismissing it as nothing more than background noise, and continue to do as they please.

Far too many groups appear to believe the definition of unity is separatism. “We’ll form a group to demand what we want,” says Group A.

“We feel the same,” says Group B, “but not all your views match ours, so we’ll form our own, separate group.”

And so it goes, on and on.

Unity has only one definition, so strive to stand by that definition. Unity will only work to achieve freedom when all of the oppressed, down-trodden, and forgotten stand united as a whole, regardless of race, colour, religion and sexual orientation. Be one body, speaking with one clear voice, and a government will have no choice but to take notice, to listen to your words.

Do not demand your rights. Your rights already belong to you, they are not a government’s reward system, to be handed out like party favours to those who please them. Remind a government of this, and demand instead that they do as they were elected to do. Demand they cease to be self-serving, and instead revert back to the democratic ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people’.

You want freedom through unity? Then work for it. Stop being so self-centred. Stop being so selfish about your own, individual needs. Put aside your differences, forget your prejudices. Stand shoulder to shoulder with your brothers and sisters from the human race, and speak with one loud and clear voice.

Together we are we, and we will be free.

Just sayin’…

Rant over.

As always, that shallot.

Contrived E.U. Racism

I’ve been hearing, for quite a while now, that those Brits who wish to leave the E.U. are racist, and don’t want any foreign nationals to set foot on our hallowed shores. This, of course, is utter bullshit. The vast majority of Brits who want to leave are proud of our multinational and multicultural background. The trouble is, the E.U. frowns on non E.U. citizens entering its borders for anything other than a brief holiday.

Most progressives believe immigration has been of great benefit to our society and economy, and this, of course, is true. But they also believe the E.U. has made this easier by enabling a more tolerant immigration system. Nothing could be further from the truth. Contrary to popular belief it is the E.U. which is racist, not Eurosceptics. Under E.U. rules anybody from an E.U. Member State is allowed to come to this country – ‘no questions asked’ – unless there are exceptional circumstances. No such rules apply to migrants from outside the E.U. As a result, large numbers of E.U. migrants have come to Britain. Not ordinarily a problem, but as overall immigration needs to be controlled, it does pose a dilemma. Reducing E.U. immigration is illegal under E.U. rules, so in order to reduce the overall migration the Government has been forced to apply very strict rules restricting non-E.U. migration. This policy is one of European superiority, with E.U. migrants considered preferable to non-E.U. migrants. We should want to see a system where immigrants are judged by the content of their character and contribution to our country, before they are allowed to settle here, not by their continent of origin. There is no justification for saying ‘yes’ to a Bulgarian builder who has the exact same characteristics as a Nigerian builder who is refused.

This sad reality is one of the reasons Africa as a whole is poor, because many countries do not encourage trade with it, imposing massive trade barriers – with the E.U. being the main culprit. Parts of Africa could compete in the agricultural industry, but the E.U. prevents it from doing so, forcing them into pitiful subsistence farming, condemning generation after generation to poverty. According to James Cleverly MP, “Tariffs mean that in 2014 the whole of Africa made just under $2.4 billion from coffee exports, while Germany made $3.8 billion…without growing a single bean…Germany’s coffee producers need cheap, raw beans to make money, so there is no import tariff on green, unprocessed coffee. That’s why the vast bulk of African coffee exports are unprocessed. But there are import tariffs on processed coffee because it is in the processing, branding, packaging and marketing that Germany makes its money.” This is nothing short of outrageous, and the E.U. elites should be ashamed of themselves.

We hear progressive arguments in favour of the E.U., such as the E.U. giving us workers’ rights. It has not. Time and time again, it’s said the E.U. gave equal pay to men and women. It did not. Our own Equal Pay Act gave us this right in 1970, before we joined the E.U.. It is true to say the E.U. extended these rights, but our Government would have done the same regardless. Workers’ rights have been increasing throughout the world over the last 40 years; the idea the UK would not have introduced similar legislation is fanciful at best. Those who make this argument unfairly compare workers’ rights in the UK back in 1972 with workers’ rights in the E.U. in 2016. It is a false premise – don’t get sucked in by it.

Deep breath… and breathe…

Rant over.
