'Buy British'? Nonsense.

The following are 3 comments placed beneath the BBC article, ‘Buy British: Why isn’t there a new campaign?’ (click image to go to bbc article)

Buy British? Sure. Provided the people own the companies they buy from. But since they don't, and when it comes to the big companies, we're just 'buying British Elite' produce. There's no such thing as a singular 'British'. But if you do buy into that nonsense, then you might 'buy British'.

All this talk about 'Buying British' is nonsense.  If the companies you support get rich enough from your money, they're just going to up-sticks and produce them cheaper elsewhere, and sell them back to you at the same price or more.  Where profit is paramount, patriotism is idiocy.

Backing your local companies is akin to investing in your future subjugation.  The same thing goes with companies that were ‘privatised’ after they had made enough money from their ex-owners - the people - to do so.  Virtue is only virtue within a virtuous system.

This in turn encourages a ‘go with your feel’ tendency, which in itself gives rise a myriad of tendencies that go unquestioned.  Right and wrong ceases to matter, and even if something is illegal, one can still view it as society just having its own bias against it, just as it once had a ‘bias’ against homosexuality.

‘Nothing is natural.  Everything is just a matter of preference.’  That is the basic thrust of this unfortunate situation.  In fact, having a preference is in itself seen as evidence of one’s intelligence.  No attention needs to be paid to intellectuals, thinkers, philosophers, sages, religious te…
