Once more unto the breach
Once more unto the breach

One of the things I was brought up to be proud of was that the British working class confronted Oswald Mosley’s fascists on the the streets of East London and defeated them:

Battle of Cable Street:

“Eyewitness Bill Fishman, 15 at the time of the battle, recalls, “I was moved to tears to see bearded Jews and Irish Catholic dockers standing up to stop Mosley. I shall never forget that as long as I live”

The English working class are again defending their streets.

The American working class are similarly stirring.

An Australian military hero in stating why he fights, speaks for movements across the English speaking world:

VC winner Ben Roberts-Smith only human: he can’t sing but he’s part of a talented family

“I do what I do because I believe in the country that we live in,” he told journalists…

“I want my children to be able to live as everyone does now without the fear of getting on a bus and having it blow up.”

The nature of the threats may be new, or more accurately new forms of old threats. But the underlying resistance to the imposition of tyranny is old. So old that it appears integral to our very being and that of the nations we create:

The Cousins’ Wars: Religion, Politics, Civil Warfare, And The Triumph Of Anglo-America

His thesis, that the American Revolution and the U.S. Civil War were, in essence, later installments of the English Civil War, is both interesting and persuasive.

There is a yearning for liberty that runs through the hearts of the inheritors of Albion’s cultural seed. They will not go gentle into that good night.

They will not stand idly by while darkness and tyranny descend on the lands of the formerly free.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.
