    Slowly being killed off by doom mongers, virtue signallers and cultural Marxists, aided and abetted by a host of external antagonists.

    I wonder what our culture will look like in fifty or a hundred years if it exists at all.

    What is the end game?

    That was a message of doom.

    The end game is to "be that self which one truly is". ~Kierkegaard

    Sounds plain and simple, but very few make it.

    The end game is probably civil war unless politicians realise that our western values are worth saving and stop immigration from certain quarters.

    All it would take in Australia is a few million immigrants from for example the Middle East with their religious laws.

    See what American societies would be in 50 or 100 years, then take away about 5 years for culture, 1 year for fashion, 20 years for technology and you're about where Australia would be.

    Though it could be turning Chinese. In which case replace "American" with "Chinese" and add in a few nuclear craters and a Mad Max landscape.

    Not all values are worth saving.

    Do you know how many "Western values" the West have to let go to make Western societies this greatest of civilisations, ever!?

    Kinda starts with getting rid of the Kings; adopt that Napoleonic Civil Code; fought a few revolutions to get rid of more kings and their devine rights; stop burning witches or dunking them into rivers to see if they floats; start reading long-lost but then translated Greek/Arab science and philosophies from those savages of the Muslim faith.

    Give women the rights to vote; the rights to work; rights to education; Stop enslaving black and colored people in the same country; give them rights so they can sue if they're obviously discriminated against.

    The gays are looking to be winning that right to ruin Western civilisation, again! But it's early days yet so let's not hang that rainbow flag up so fast.

    That and if there's ever a civil war in Western countries, it's not going to be White/European versus the barbarians. It's going to be, as it has always been in all civil wars, an entire impoverished army of peasants led by a handful of failed "scholars" and mid-level generals against the establishment.

    Once that civil is done and dusted, then the dominant race will start to lock up (literally or through policies) minorities again.

    Western values are not perfect , but I'd rather have them over Communism or theocracies.

    Communism/Stalinism/Leninism/Marxism, they're not all the same but let's assume they are... they're a "Western" value. Seeing how they came about from a German living in London; put to great use by a Russian, then spread to other countries.

    Theocracies... same deal. All countries have 'em. Why do you think East, West, Middle East... no one like gays?

    Class and tax brackets are better differentiator than race or religion.

    Surely the biggest contributor to the end of the West is the relatively falling birth rate?

    50 to 100yrs from now you will be being watched a hell of alot more closely than you are now(careful taking that probe out). And those 'with' will be watching those 'without' very closely... What a thriving environment for expression.
    Historically high debt burden, doesn't sound like freedom to me (unless you're the creditor) ...
    Concentration of wealth, doesnt sound like blossoming of opportunity for the greater population (they'd squander it anyway)...

    May I suggest a little bit of Norwiegn Style Soverign Wealth fund. So that in 50 to 100yrs you'll own some of the robots that have by then taken all the jobs... Freeing up your time to spend on culture ( Io io io).

    As opposed to the road we're on now to a renewably powered Plutocracy and neo-serfdom.

    If this sort of sh#t keeps happening we truly are doomed.
    Couple sue SBS for defamation after broadcaster described their Colonial-themed restaurant as 'offensive' and profiteering from the Empire's 'bloody history'

    Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ffensive-restaurant-report.html#ixzz4uIiul2mx

    Hope they skin SBS (even though some of it will be my taxes) but the Judge won't dare make such a ruling.

    The restaurant would have failed sooner or later mate.

    You can't celebrate imperialism like that. Heck, they might as well hired some black, brown or yellow folks as waiters dressed in their exotic customes and bow without eye contact as they serve food to the masters.

    That's just bad taste. You gotta celebrate imperialism with things like giving money to dig a well; opening an orphanage; raise money to help this or that cause; and try not to quote Rudyard Kipling.

    I like watching SBS for its alternative to (9, 7, 10, ABC) news track and the presenters. I agree the Director should be held accountable for defamation. Interestingly ... Michael Abeid

    You haven'y been around much have you. Even the Raffles Hotel in Singapore is a celebrated tradition. ;)

    Hate of the British Empire is merely a display at the frustration of being born a genetically second rate human. There's a reason genuine whitey is a mere fraction of the world's population, yet dominates it by birthright. Something incalculable by those 97% born not so well skilled.:troll:

    Wow!!! That is SO, SO, So "good" Tisme. Is it all a bit slow today and your imperialistic juices need a bit of a stir? Perhaps you feel a need to pull out some piccies of the Queen (or a King ?) to provide some pictorial assistance for whatever you have in hand at the moment.

    You are such a devil arn't you matey? How can we not appreciate such a poised(ous) appriasal of the wonders of the Colonial Master race ? So delightfully droll and Tizzinesque.

    There are good reasons why many "non whiteys" might feel contempt for the inestimable values offered by the Raj, West Indian slave traders, Opium runners and South African CC masters. But ... it would be a waste of bandwidth here.

    Can you pinpoint the sh!t stirrers or are they concealed by messengers? I like to go straight for the source rather than through the puppets.

    There are plenty of self loathing whitefella. How the Marxists engineered that, I'm not quite sure, but it was pretty clever.

    Of course bas could very well be a brown skinned muslim on the LGBTI spectrum somewhere, but I've got him pegged as whitey with a cultural death wish.
