I was just looking over some photos from Paris.
I went to Paris in October 2010 and I was very impressed by the Louvre and its interior. I began thinking that, while the rich pricks were enjoying this offensive opulence, people were starving on the street. And then I thought of the French Revolution; why it happened, and its effects. And I realised something… I realised the reason why the English didn’t have a similar Revolution. [Warning: Take it easy, it’s a blog, not book]
The English didn’t have their own ‘French Revolution’ because they had been properly brainwashed. In fact, brainwashing was the key to the Norman’s conquest of Britain. How else would such a foreign influence be able to enforce its dominance and rule WITHOUT convincing the people that they were serving a native, if not inherently local and natural, government? The Normans convinced the Anglo-Saxons that their new rulers were rulers of England; England, the home of the Anglo-Saxons, and hence their paternal figures. Once they were convinced, the Welsh and Scottish were next.
This time, they worked off the concept of an island nation. Britishness became the new unifying concept to plug in order to get these two Celtic nations to fight for this German/French hybrid. And the Normans just continued this methodology until, now, a disproportionately high fraction of the world unconsciously follow their ‘British’ tradition.
Thankfully, us Irish never accepted their proposal. It just didn’t make sense to us. Well most of us. And most of us, despite the cruel centuries, prevailed. Brainwashing and propaganda isn’t natural. And when you encounter it, you know it. The Germans knew it. If not during ‘those’ years, then definitely after WWII.
It just goes to show ya…
