Ladies and Gentlemen,
The trouble with prisons today is they are not "hell Holes" enough. The whole point as some of you have pointed out is to stop criminals re-offending and you don't achieve that by coddling and pleading.
Civilizing people is a stick and carrot process; violent offenders need the grating and the cat to focus their attention on their behavior and counciling to show them the proper direction. Spare the rod and spoil the child; no matter how much you try to educate, there is always the need for the threat of corporal punishment.
The trouble with the western world is all this liberal thinking has made us soft. A hundred years ago we knew what we stood for and we knew we were right. We are a society that is in decline now through lack of courage and determination; decadence and self interest prevail and we will very soon be overrun.

Go to: Why multiculturalism must be abandoned

DavidJMH's Avatar Jump to comment 109 by DavidJMH

Ladies and Gentlemen,
The British people were not asked whether they wanted a multi-cultural society or not; it was imposed upon them as cynical political tool by the looney left to attract more adherents to their marxist policies. The Britons have their own culture of which they can be justly proud and there is not the slightest justification for watering it down with foreign influences.
Three generations of a socialist nanny state have shrivelled the wits and the balls of the British male to where he now is no longer able to stand up for what deep down he knows is right. Unless something drastic is done very soon there will be no opportunity to resist the power of an ancient, ignorant, violent and bigotted faith. There is a growing movement and legitimate British political party who are pledged to stopping this rot; join the BNP and be proud to be British.

Go to: Blasphemy

Dear Teratornis,

"Essentially Gould was asking religion to reduce itself to nothing more than a form of entertainment, a masturbatory thought pattern having no measurable impact in the real world, and thus no possibility of scientific testability. In other words, push God into his steadily shrinking gap."

Is this not exactly what religion is and where it is going in the West. Marx said religion was an opiate for the masses which is in a sense an entertainment. I see hordes here in the US, dressing up on Sundays and strutting their stuff and being entertained. Of course they do not see it as such because they are blinded by some emotional fervour to feel good about themselves.

"But such a religion would not be very appealing to hoi polloi, who are for the time being stuck in the real world and have lots of vexing real world problems they cannot solve yet."

I understand your meaning and surely the decline specifically in Western Europe of religion is the proof of what you have written. It isn't very appealing because with enlightenment, it is seen to be more and more irrelevant to one's everyday world problems. Religion has always been a political tool wealded by the powerful to subjugate the masses. More and more only basically educated people are seeing religion for what it is; an illusion not a reality. In the US, evangelicalism is precisely an entertainment and a snake oil remedy for the trials of everyday stress.

Go to: Sharia law in UK is 'unavoidable'

DavidJMH's Avatar Jump to comment 98 by DavidJMH

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Rod-the Farmer's comments are eminently correct, just so long as one looks at the World through logic and reason; however, that is not how Muslims are. They are motivated by ignorance and bigotry of the worst kind; fairness doesn't enter into their way of thinking. For them it is about control of the individual, complete subservience to their Imams wishes by claiming every sort of diversion to their antiquated faith is not the will of Allah.
They have every intention of setting up Islamic States wherever the local populace are too weak to resist. The Brits have had their wits and balls shrivelled by three generations of a nanny state and simply do not now have the stomach to resist. Their only chance for survival will be by recognizing that what the BNP stands for is right, reasonable and their only saviour, and should give the only truly British party their unqualified support.

Go to: Ad 'likely to offend gay people'

DavidJMH's Avatar Jump to comment 39 by DavidJMH

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Little wonder the western world sits precariously upon the edge of oblivion. Acceptance of homosexuality as a society norm has been shown to be a serious symptom of society's demise throughout the history; there is nothing likely to be different now. It is the most important of a number of social ills such as drug addiction, promiscuity and the cult of self above all else.
There is one saving grace for the spread of Islamic forces throughout Europe today; the queers and all the other social deviants will be eradicated. Unfortunately for the majority of decent, clean living and morally upright people, the scum of the western world will drag them into the abyss of ignorance, oppression and religious despotism as well.
Take heed, we will all pay very dearly for the "rights" of a few who have throughout mankind forced their selfish, adolescent and irresponsible behavior on the populace. Squeal as much as they like, the downfall of civilized reason and values is on their weak shoulders.
