Persecution of Goths.....and the Rise of Fascist UK?




Hate Crime: Police record attacks on Punks, Goths, and Emos
A police force has begun recording attacks on members of subcultures, such as goths and emos, as hate crimes.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) is the first force in the UK to treat the offences in such a way.
Previously hate crimes were only registered for offences against race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or transgender identity.
GMP has worked with a charity set up following the murder of 20-year-old goth Sophie Lancaster in 2007.
Ms Lancaster was attacked in a park in Bacup, Lancashire, on 24 August 2007, along with her boyfriend Robert Maltby, because of the way they were dressed.
She was kicked and stamped on as she cradled her badly beaten boyfriend.
While Mr Maltby made a partial recovery from his injuries, Ms Lancaster slipped into a coma after the attack and died later in hospital. -

One of the reasons why i love this country is its difference.  Not too long ago, V stated, whilst we were having coffee in town, “You know, this country (as opposed to singapore) is a great place to bring up kids.  There’s so much difference.  So many different styles and people.  Kids can become really smart and creative here.”  Where i originally come from - singapore - thanks to supremacist policies by the government, all difference has been eradicated since the late 80s. 

In this country, i see punks, goths, rockers, different ethnic groups, different political parties, and other variants of style, sound, and speech.  Great! 

But then i begin to realise that there is quite a bit of infighting amongst the working classes to the point of death.  That isn't the real UK, I'm thinking.  Am i thinking wrong?

Isn't this the country that gave birth to the Sex Pistols.  It is really strange that the rebellious are now being kept in line and killed at times by their own.  It seems that the rebels lost out in the face of the elite, and have lost their status amongst those they spoke up for, and being stomped upon as a result. 

Those whom hate difference amongst their own have played into the hands of the elite, whilst thinking that they are asserting themselves in the face of the elite.  So when xenophobes talk about maintaining the UK as it traditionally was, it doesn’t make much sense.  They certainly aren’t speaking up for the UK as it was in the Teddy Boy era, or the time of the Mods and Rockers, or that of the Punks.  What ‘UK’ are they speaking up for?  They are fighting for a fascist UK that is bereft of multicultural difference, be it of foreign or British origin.  

One of the clearest indicators of the progress of top-down (vertical) fascism is the increase in (horizontal) working-class oppression and persecution of difference.

The Inquisitive venture is a collaborative one. Let's collaborate.

Ad hominem is fine so long as it is accompanied with an argument, as opposed to being confused for an argument. In the latter case, deletion will follow.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Manifesto Against Same-Sex Marriages and Homo-Promotion

My stand against homosexuality is based on the following.  It is a logical, rather than a personal, decision.

Under the slogan, 'the freedom to love', it in principle justifies incestuous, group, etc, marriages.  All it requires is 'consenting adults', without an inquiry into what it means to be an 'adult' in intelligent, moral, and introspective terms.

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…
