It’s too late: there are too few others to make a difference

David Davis

In today’s thing in the DT about “How to turn the underclass around”, I detect a note of optimism in the writer. But this is misplaced because he’s advocating the use of solutions still within the compass of the providers of the original problem.

The Underclass was specifically and deliberately created to become what it now is. Too many hapless people have been subsumed into it whether they were aware of that or not, over the last 40-50 years or so. Some families comprising parts of it are now three generations old. It was a purposeful ad strategically-focussed creation, to do what it now does: absorb vast resources wrested from taxation, cause the employment of legions of GramscoFabiaNazis, and provide a votariat (which preferably can’t read postal-voting-forms) for the paymasters of the apparatchiks to keep british governments taxing real workers to pay for all this GFN superstructure.

Sometimes I wonder why I bother to write this stuff over, and over, and over again. And again. So that’s why I say it’s too late.

  1. Hi DD what would you recommend?

  2. Keep saying though – it keeps a few of us out here sane. The real insanity of it all is that the problem is a little worse than even you know. I have the day to day ear of movers and shakers who are perfectly happy with the situation. Their latest Rolex, Hermes scarf, Bugatti and holiday home provides proof and it is not easy to argue against that.

  3. Single Acts of Tyranny

    @ John

    When a rioter kicks the door down and the police can’t respond and won’t let them defend themselves, the movers and shakers will find the de facto reality compelling.

    Like the Irishman who, when asked the way to somewhere, replied “Hey, if I were you, I’d not be starting from here, to be sure!” …

    I don’t know. I’d have to have nearly all existing schools shut down, while most teachers are purged of MarxoStaliNazism, if that cna be achieved, and “syllabuses” are rewritten, or if not, then torn up. But that does not help nearly three generations of scumbags created to be like that through no fault of their own except a short attention-span, probably also deliberately inculcated.

    No, I don’t know at this stage.

  5. Stop paying for them, and let the chips fall where they may.
    It’s not just the only possible solution, It’s what is going to happen anyway eventually.
    and yes, it is most likely to be very unpleasant for all concerned.

  6. Charles Murray, in Coming Apart, suggests taking the entire welfare budget and dividing it equally among the population (thereby providing everyone with a basic income) and then shutting down the entire welfare bureaucracy.

    Seems reasonable.

    No one could claim that the poor were not being assisted, but most of the money would go back to the taxpayers from whom it has been extorted.

    There would be some overhead, I suppose, but not nearly as much as with the stupid universal benefits system where you get your money back whether you need it or not via a hundred different and expensively administered programs.
