and you lay all this at the door of the british people or at the door of powerful families who remain in position to this day who tell you, you are responsible.
my g.grandparents in the mills and trenches, were they oppressors or oppressed?
what about the medicine infrastructure and organisation and engineering that those countries recieved.
do you believe in punishing people collectively, intra generational.
because that is the stance you are led into.
did whites invent the slave trade?
you are been persuaded to hate your own legacy.

Lest we forget what? Your own prejudices and your warped agenda?

because theres a couple of well known families that are responsible for that. one owns our lands and the other owns our banks.
you can lay his body and those of the soldiers at their door.

If you want to dwell on and live in the past that's your choice. I could post similar stuff about the victims of the IRA. whats the point, though? That sort of thing is just stopping people from moving on and instead festering over the past.

That just keeps conflict going, it's wholly negative.

Your world view seems a bit skewed.

Dwelling on the past and debunking the history rewriting ignorance on display are two separate issues.

It's kinda telling that this is happening in a Brexit thread, don't ya think?

Not really. For us Brits, Brexit is all about the future.




Dwelling on the past and debunking the history rewriting ignorance on display are two separate issues.


Could you translate that, please?

yep, its full of communists who have no idea they are communists.

"Dwelling on the past and debunking the history rewriting ignorance on display are two separate issues."
and put some bloody punctuation in, it literally makes no sense as a sentence.

I think his point is that the English are evil bastards and that we should all live out the rest of our days feeling guilty about and ashamed of our ancestors and apologise for lots of stuff that happened in the past. That sort of thing.

I get it. We Krauts have a similar problem, and we would be banned from this board for holocaust denial. Which isn't exactly a bad thing, or is it?

So you didn't get my other point? Why? What was it, lack of punctuation or the lack of a full blown holocaust?

Look I am not saying Britain has not done some major scrogs to various people in their pasts more recent ones was the partionioning of India and sending the Jewish people to Palestine but if you look through history all the classic empires have blood on their hands whether it was British, ottoman ,Roman Egyptian, Chinese, mongolian,greek,american,and so on. That's the past what we are referring to is the current situation where British are tired of paying through the nose to eu with little to no benefit. With out England in the eu the eu will likely collapse with in the decade and that has the union and Merkel very upset.
