CULTURE

The best way to understand a society is through its culture. The best way to control a society is through its culture. Because it is culture which shapes and defines the values of that society, which emphasises what is important.

If you want to go to the very heart and soul of a nation, buy a newspaper.

And ask yourself, how exactly does it benefit my life to have to constantly worry about asylum seekers, paedophiles and terrorists?

Is there anything that I can actually do to change any of this?

If there isn’t, that means that I am powerless and helpless and afraid. Is that how I really want to live my life?

Hmmm. Everyone else seems to have bought into it too …

Forget Wimbledon, the Royal Family and the Proms. In Britain, complaining about asylum seekers, paedophiles and terrorists – this is our culture.
