Not just in the UK. In Germany, France, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Turkey and apparently the US. There is an international swing towards nationalistic chauvinism and antiliberalism. A new, increasingly open aggression that is antimodernist at its core. I have a baby daughter and no clue what is ahead for her. I have a bad gut feeling.
I'm anti-modernist at my core and I dont actually identify with what is going on, I see this as a profoundly modern phenomenon, there was never anything like the population shifts there are happening now in pre-modern times and when there where it was not politicised in quite the way it has been.
Its all the bastard children of social darwinism and malthusian thinking, both things I see as profoundly modern too, for the majority of human history the sages and great masters tried to teach people not to hate the stranger because it could be a stranger/christ/messiah/messenger of God in disguise, all that's gone and in its place are people who dont want to think too hard about anything, encouraged by dumbed down media and told they dont need to have full possession of the facts and facts dont matter anyway.
