Brexit: Endgame for the English Ruling Caste? - Wilberg on Wednesday

Brexit: Endgame for the English Ruling Caste?

Political and Philosophical Notes and Considerations, Part 1

Whither Brexit?

You cannot agitate or use activism to ‘campaign’ for or against a contradiction - more specifically the innate contradictions of capitalism. You can only expose these contradictions, educate others in them - and prepare for them to play themselves out until a critical point is reached when socialism becomes the only option and not a mere policy stall. Here I will argue that Brexit represents a potentially terminal crisis of British capitalism, or rather its ruling caste - one that could lead to its collapse even without pressure from socialist movements. Yet there is evidence that resulting chaos this may lead to in both Britain and Europe may well have been planned from the start by the global ruling elite as an excuse to further their agenda - which it certainly will aid in doing.  
A reminder from Karl (even though he would be on UKIP’s deportation list!)

Every industrial and commercial centre in England now possesses a working class divided into two hostile camps, English proletarians and Irish proletarians. The ordinary English worker hates the Irish worker as a competitor who lowers his standard of life. In relation to the Irish worker he regards himself as a member of the ruling nation and consequently he becomes a tool of the English aristocrats and capitalists against Ireland, thus strengthening their domination over himself. “...this antagonism is the secret of the impotence of the English working class, despite its organisation. It is the secret by which the capitalist class maintains its power. And the latter is quite aware of this. Karl Marx

In other words native white British workers and farmers can be treated like shit (zero-hours, no or poor proper education or skills training, wage stagnation, high and uncontrolled rents etc.) but if they can nostalgically regard themselves as members of a superior race that forged a ‘Great’ empire, i.e. identify with their superiors - and at the same time become dependent on debt-based consumption themselves - then their will to resist is diverted.  

The run up to the Brexit referendum

Debt-based neo-liberal capitalist economy > leading to ever rising national debt > used to justify ever more ruthless austerity cuts(based on the unquestioned fiscal lie of having to ‘live within our means’ mantra - in practice welfare for the banks and corpocracy, poverty for the people  >  all this leading to extreme polarisation on the immigration question (read immigrants for ‘Irish’ in the Marx quote above) > Brexit referendum but also and at the same time serious internal contradictions for the English ruling caste and a situation in which false simplifications of thinking in the face of complex and ineradicable contradictions become the only way in which governments and parties of all colours can continue to function.  

The Brexit referendum result

The last roar of the British Imperialist lion, as evidenced by ridiculous talk of a ‘Global Britain’. The referendum result as an opportunity for the English ruling caste to give a white-nationalist face to debt-based neo-liberal capitalism in attempt to once again sow the seeds of conflict and division - both in Britain and in Europe and on the Eurasian continent as a whole, particularly through fostering anti-Germanism and anti-Russianism. In other words, a yet further continuation, but this time a hopeless one, of the old Imperial British foreign policy first suggested in 1904 by the geopolitical analysis of Sir Halford McKinder

The heartland, the crescent, and the nightmare of British geopolitics. The ‘heartland’ was a hypothetical area centered in Eurasia, which would be so situated and catered to by resources and manpower as to render it an unconquerable fortress and a fearsome power; and the ‘crescent’ was a virtual semi-arc encompassing an array of islands – America, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Japan – which, as ‘Sea Powers,’ watched over the Eurasian landmass to detect and eventually thwart any tendency towards a consolidation of power on the heartland.  Guido Giacomo Preparata

The ground-plan McKinder laid for British geopolitics on the basis of this analysis: to engage in all possible political and military machinations, not least the seeding and initiation of wars, to stave off any potential threat of a unified Eurasian ‘heartland’ - in other words, a state of permanent war, hot or cold between the Crescent and the Heartland, ‘Oceania’ and ‘Eurasia’. The plan worked in WW1 - until the blowback began, and continues today from the vast colonial territories it reduced to poverty and disarray. It began to fail with WW2 which ended, as Hitler predicted, with the loss of Empire - and war debts to the U.S. which were only paid off 20 years ago! Nevertheless it was Britain that tutored and supervised the monstrous, overgrown child that is the U.S. Empire - and, as in Ireland, created an ‘immigration problem’.

True English National Culture

Just as Germany has its Goethe, Beethoven, Wagner etc. so does England have its William Shakespeare and William Blake, Elgar and many more….

All the more important for a true renaissance of English culture to remember the words of perhaps the most important of its cultural titans: William Blake:

“Nations are destroyed or flourish in proportion as their poetry, painting, and music are destroyed or flourish.”

The false English ‘Patriotism’ of Brexiteers

Holding aloft the great banner of such ruling caste and imperialist icons such as the Queen, Churchill, the Battle of Britain etc. etc. ad nauseum. All in the ‘patriotic’ spirit of English race superiority - not just over Asians and Muslims but all other white European nations too ! What would the Mail say if they knew that MARMITE was a German invention, named with a French word! Then there is the bogey of Pakistani sex-grooming of teenage English roses - but that in a country where one child sex offence is committed every ten minutes . Those Pakis must really be busy. And telling Syrian families they have “run away” and shouldn’t feel “too comfy” in Britain. Presumably these brave Brexiteers
and their families would stand firm and strong in their Englishmens’ castles as they are being bombarded and reduced to rubble?

“These weapons of mass distractions that are been used today to distract the masses are old tricks that have been tried and tested. Oh look we are protecting you from the Mozlims because they are 99% of your problems. Meanwhile we have to cut education, health, pensions, put taxes up, pay more for gas, electricity, bus, car, train, food. Oh yeah and you don't get a pay rise. In fact you get paid too much lol. Oh and you can ’t strike anymore. But hey we gonna sort out the Mozlims for you!!!”

“Its funny how most white Europeans are so possessive of their countries. If they had stayed put in their beloved lands and not went and rampaged, stole, enslaved, murdered hundred of millions of people in their lands for the last 500 years we wouldn't be where we are now. Also when they were busy killing themselves till Kingdom come "euro war 1 and 2" they were fleeing as far as lands they call America and Australia now. Wasn't their lands but they went there anyway. Didn't integrate with the locals, worse yet they eliminated most of them and stole their lands. Are they Muslims in disguise???”
