Leaving Britain

Cal Thomas:

Britons give many reasons for leaving, but their stories share one commonality: life in Britain has become unbearable. They fear lawlessness and the threat of more terrorism from a growing Muslim population and the loss of a sense of Britishness, exacerbated by the growing refusal of public schools to teach the history and culture of the nation. What it means to be British has been watered down in a plague of political correctness. […]

Abraham Lincoln said no nation can exist half slave and half free. Neither can a nation be sustained if it allows conditions that result in mass emigration, while importing huge numbers of foreigners who come from backgrounds that do not practice assimilation or tolerance of other beliefs. When one factors in the high number of abortions (one in five pregnancies are aborted in England and Wales), the high birth rates of immigrants (15 times those of white Britons), it doesn't take an expert to predict that the days of the England we have known may be numbered.

The problem for Britain and the United States isn't just the change in demographics. It is the reluctance of both countries to inculcate the beliefs, history and, yes, religious ideals, which made our nations so successful that others wanted to come and be a part of them.

I am rather partial to immigrants (my wife being one, my ancestors as well), so I don't like the anti-immigrant arguments that many use when discussing the British situation. High immigration would not be a problem if Britons themselves were a vigorous people with strong beliefs.

But that is the problem. They are an effete people, as our (american) people are becoming. They need immigrants because they are no longer willing to labor, because they no longer have a zest for life, only a sense of entitlement.

What good would it do for Britain to close it's borders? It would be gone in less than a century. I am no friend of Islam, but I am not so foolish as to think that a nation of limp-wristed socialists will last longer than a paper sack full of water.

Let the Muslims come, I say. The Christians left a long time ago.
