National Identity Theft

The Historical Association reports that history as a subject is dying in schools.  http://www.history.org.uk/news/news_869.html. This is no accident but the deliberate policy of all governments from the 1980s onwards.
First, the idea of chronology was removed; themes replaced periods and children were  encouraged not to learn about  great figures from the past but to “empathise” with common folk  by imagining they were a peasant in Mediaeval England  or a chambermaid in Victorian London.    Then the curriculum was narrowed by teaching the Tudors and the Hitler period over and over again. Finally, history was made non-compulsory after the age of 14.
Why did all this happen? Because the entire British political class became committed to multiculturalism and the putative wonders of diversity, a state of affairs they had engineered over half a century from 1945 by allowing mass  immigration.  To enforce multiculturalism it was necessary to destroy historical understanding and national sentiment  amongst the native population, because the success  of multiculturalism relied on the native population being denied not only a public voice but the intellectual and emotional  tools to oppose the imposition of multiculturalism.
The other side of the multicultural coin was to incessantly promote the various  cultures of immigrants as things of great value   which both excited and strengthened the naturally separarist  tendencies of the and indoctrinated the native population with the idea that these people  have culture, you have none.

    The advocacy of multi-culturalism is designed to weaken and bring down Western Society. The Left tried to do the same by economic means but failed ( not as though Western economies are now strong ) and by a clever move bang on about the myth of multi-culturalism, despite the fact there is no such thing and cannot be, only a multi-fragmented society, which is exactly what the Left aimed for. That others jumped on board fearing being declared racist ( and what is wrong with being racist when it is more than likely a question of self-preservation) shows how effective the Left’s aims have been. It has long since passed the point where we need politicians of guts and perception to halt and reverse this process. Those who have come here and don’t like t such change can do the obvious and return from whence they came, taking their Leftie supporters with them. That the world is getting smaller is a fact but no need to become one great melting pot with no Western orientated nation retaining it’s identity and all that goes with it.
