The following (in bold type) is an extract taken from Wikipedia on the life and views of Solzhenitsyn who declared:
‘Over a half century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of old people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.” Since then I have spent well-nigh 50 years working on the history of our revolution; in the process I have read hundreds of books, collected hundreds of personal testimonies, and have already contributed eight volumes of my own toward the effort of clearing away the rubble left by that upheaval. But if I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous revolution that swallowed up some 60 million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.” ‘
The thoughts of Solzhenitsyn made me reflect on the way British political leaders have gone about things these past 50 years and I have arrived at a similar conclusion.
For instance, like Russia after the Marxist Revolution, British culture has become infiltrated by Left-Wing ideology; leading to hundreds of new laws based upon an ideology known as ‘political correctness’ – a term first coined by the Russian communist leader Lenin.
Many believe that the only way to restore a once globally admired culture from yesteryear is to leave the EU. It is no accident that many contemporary influential EU leaders have been sympathetic to Marxism. For illustation, the latest choice for EU leadership allegedly said:
“We must rediscover the social dimension of economic and monetary union, with measures such as the minimum wage in all countries of the euro zone, otherwise we lose credibility and approval of the working class, in the words of Marx.”
Marxism is atheistic and actively promotes a Godless society and culture. Britain is being led into a spiritual wilderness by its political leaders. People are waking up to what has happened to their country. UKIP are a step in the right direction, but it might be argued that it is far too little and far too late.
The voting system in the UK means that, by my estimate, even if UKIP gained five million votes in the next General Election it would be unlikely to give them anything more than a nominal amount of seats at Westminster even though they would have gained at least 20% of the popular vote. But what democratic alternative is there?
