I am moved to write because I fear that “Western” civilization is in decline, and malign forces are on the rise in the world which threaten to accelerate that decline. For some time I have been studying global current affairs with increasing alarm. My blog will be dedicated to identifying the problems underlying current trends and to finding peaceful solutions to those problems. The particular areas I am concerned about are welfare, immigration, freedom of speech and the creeping authoritarianism that I see growing in Western governments.
I will be writing some UK specific articles as well as more general articles. The subjects I will cover will include Politics, Government, Law, Religion, Psychology among others. I would not be so vain as to describe myself as a philosopher, I prefer to call myself a thinker, just as everybody else is. I am also an amateur poet and will be posting poems occasionally.
Comment is very welcome, as long as it is not defamatory against any person, actually racist (as opposed to what we might call “culturalist”), and does not incite violence. If you have facts you want to share then please quote your sources if you can.
I will be endeavouring to post articles regularly at least once a week. Please feel free to link to any posts that you find useful in an argument.
