The modern understanding of a country is somewhere that is under the sway of a particular government.
A closer inspection reveals that this is not what a country really is. A country is a place where the occupants live according to agreed morals (social values) and where traditions and aspirations are in general accord. Only once these foundations are already in place, is it possible for a government to emerge. They do so to represent those values, traditions and aspirations.
As long as governments abide by that accord, then all is well. When governments begin to act against the glue that binds, then they have negated the reason for their own existence.
Over the course of the last few decades, governments throughout the West have acted to destroy the foundations of their countries. The tool of their destruction has been the mass immigration of Muslims – people with a radically different, and diametrically opposed, view on how society should be organised.
The assembling of people with a commonality of worldview is what a country is. But, even more fundamental, it is why countries exist. A hotchpotch of competing cultures is what a country is not. That describes the disintegration of a country. The manifestation of national disintegration is the disappearance of tolerance and peaceful coexistence.
Countries do change, but organically and volitionally and over the course of time, not by artificial insemination of an alien culture.
We love visiting foreign and exotic countries and participating in their different ways of viewing the world; in all its aspects – from food and drink to architecture and art. We love to learn to use simple parts of the native language. Then we like to go home again – back to our own country, back to where we do things our way.
Let Muslims live in peace in their own countries. That is why those countries exist. Ditto for the people of the West; that is why their countries exist.
Farage and Trump are peaceful and civilised harbingers of a far more militant breed. They are courageous and necessary people, but stop-gaps. They are the first to articulate the concerns of sane people concerned at the loss of their culture, but too moderate to get down and dirty. That is still to come; those people have yet to emerge. They will.
The civilised West is very slow to violence, but history has shown that when the red mist finally rises, they can be every bit as savage as the followers of Allah.
After the dust settles and the bodies are buried, the end result will be the same. Countries are more resilient than governments; especially governments that have so egregiously betrayed them. That it was mostly done in ignorance will be no consolation to those who will have to pay the price for remedying the damage.
