Here’s Stephen Pollard saying stuff better and more succinctly than I can right now (chores to do).
If I live 1,000 years, Men will still say that we were right, about the deliberate de-civilisation of Britain which had to be accomplished in particular in order to bring about the Endarkenment.
And that the GrasmscoFabiaNazis did what they have done, on purpose.
There is now no practicable help to avoid GramscoStalinist dictatorship in the UK, whatever form the UK will take over the next 30-50 years. We are inside the entrance to the Tunnel of Endarkenment, and being propelled forwards and downwards, for there are now less than 500 people who understand what is going on truly and who can do anything individually – and that is not enough, I fear, to make a difference any more.
We must treasure memories, store them in any permanent way we can, whether in Libraries (vulnerable to mobs sadly CD-ROMs, caches of information and scrolls, whatever. WE must store science, engineering, history, high art (not the “progressive” kind for that is blind and cannot say the future even though it tries) pictures and plans of stuff like Salisbury Cathedral, the Humber Bridge, oil rigs, Apollo-11, the diode, the triode, the triode-ransistor, and so on. This must be so that thhose who come after us, or those from the Stars,= who find our records in the deepnesses of Space, will know that we tried and that we tried hard to be worthy of some place in the Universal Order of Things.
I once fantasised that we ought to send CDs into space on unknown trajectories: perhaps we ought to after all.
