Game Over

Mark Shea:

Britons Beg for Conquest and Destruction of Their Civilization

Nearly a quarter think Winston Churchill was a myth while the majority reckon Sherlock Holmes was real.

The survey found that 47 percent thought the 12th century English king Richard the Lionheart was a myth.

Remember: This is the urbane and sophisticated people who have outgrown such primitive superstitions as "belief in God" because they can now see the latest soccer mob riot on Hi Def TV.

I wonder what percentage of Americans would answer the same poll questions with "Who?"

One simple advantage Christians have over the retrograde yobs who account for such poll results is that they actually have contact with some historical memory that is older than the Spice Girls. A system of material comforts and bovine spiritual horizons such as the present UK is hardly worthy of the name "civilization" anymore. When the whole governmental/educational/technological/entertainment complex is devoted, 24/7, to turning human beings into self-satisfied cattle, it makes for a (temporary) easy job for the elites, but there will be a big piper to pay when something throws the system out of gear and the cattle begin a mindless stampede.
