I’m Here To Talk To You Today About Our Lord and Saviour, Jeremy Corbyn and His Message Of Socialism and Free Stuff For All
It’s no great revelation to anyone who regularly frequents Going Postal to be told we’re in a war of civilisations. Our nations, traditions, values, morality, identity, our society and way of life are under attack both from without and from within. It’s not a war being fought between armies and navies contesting control of land or seas and oceans. The weapons aren’t guns and tanks, bombers and destroyers. This war is being fought in the hearts and minds of our people. The battlefields are the Internet; social media, Youtube, beneath the line comments and blogs like Going Postal. The stakes are as high, higher even, they’ve ever been in any war in history – the very survival of our culture and our way of life.
The most visible front of this war is the clash between Islamism and the West. We’re all well versed on this conflict. We all know how our civilisation is being usurped and how we are being replaced.
As visible and crucial as this front is, it’s not the only front. There is another. It’s one that’s being increasingly forgotten and neglected. As the clash with Islamism increasingly grabs our attention we need to be very mindful of the struggle against socialism and it’s offshoots globalism and post-modernism.
Her Majesty’s – ahem – “Loyal” Opposition is led by the Labour Party. The leader of the Labour Party is a committed socialist. No, not the astroturf variety of socialist as exemplified by Tony Blair. Corbyn is a real honest to Marx socialist with all the bells and whistles.
In the 2017 General Election Labour polled 758,220 votes less than the Conservatives. That’s a mere 2.4% less of the turnout than the Conservatives who lost 13 seats whilst Labour gained 30. The shocking truth is in 2017 Corbyn polled more votes than any leader of any political party in the previous four General Elections. That should scare the living shit out of each and every one of you reading this.
It is 2018 and we face the very real possibility of the next Prime Minister being a man who has dedicated his entire life to the pursuit of an ideology which has inflicted nothing but suffering, misery and ruin in every place it has been implemented. The next Chancellor of the Exchequer is a man who openly describes himself as a Marxist and has called for the persecution of his political opponents.
The truth is we could save ourselves from demographic annihilation and the takeover by a supremacist ideology masquerading as a religion, and we could fight off the tentacles of the EU and preserve our nation and sovereignty only to find ourselves laid low by socialism instead.
Although I don’t consider myself religious, I do regard the Seven Deadly Sins as a pretty solid guide for things you really shouldn’t do if you want to be a good person.
One of them is Envy.
Envy of the wealth of others. Envy leading one to covet that wealth. Envy leading to a feeling of entitlement that one has a right to the product of the work of others. Envy leading one to vote for politicians who promise to redistribute the wealth of the rich using the force of the state.
These people are very short sighted, even blinded by their base envy. If one is guaranteed an income why would one bother to work in the first place? Why would one work and toil to create wealth only to have it taken away and redistributed to those who haven’t worked for it? Where is the incentive to create wealth? Where is the incentive to improve one’s self, to learn new skills, to ascend to higher responsibility or take on a tough or rigorous profession? Where is the incentive to innovate? To be an entrepreneur?
The answer is there is none. Such a society would quickly stagnate as has been seen time and time again.
Another deadly sin is Pride.
Pride of course being synonymous with hubris. Hubris that one knows better than everyone else. Hubris that one knows how to implement a system that has failed every other time it has been implemented before. Hubris that one is more intelligent, more virtuous, more righteous than all those who implemented such systems before. Hubris that one won’t repeat the mistakes and the crimes of those that went before.
Hubris that because of the above, one must be listened to. One must have authority. One must be obeyed.
Thus, I give you the two motivating forces of the left:
Jealousy and the desire for power.
Corbyn says he has all the answers. Tax the rich and use it to feed the poor. What a glorious socialist Utopia it will be!
Corbyn won’t tell you that if we divided the national debt between every “millionaire” household in Britain it would work out at over £2m per household.
Nor will he tell you that if he confiscated every last penny of wealth of the richest one thousand people in Britain it wouldn’t come close to covering even half of the national debt.
He certainly won’t tell you there would be an exodus of the wealthy from this country the day he moved into Number 10 with his self-confessed Marxist Chancellor of the Exchequer next door.
No. Corbyn is quite happy to sit back and promise the ignorant, the naive, the envious and self-entitled more spending, more money, more services the nation cannot afford. He tantalises his hubristic followers with promises of the power and authority they need to implement their vision. All the while his socialist stormtroopers in Momentum slowly purge The Party behind closed doors. There is only room for the faithful in The Party, Comrade.
Brothers and Sisters, Comrades, we don’t talk about the latest victim of socialism, Venezuela. We don’t talk about how a country with the largest oil reserves in the world has empty supermarkets and power cuts. We don’t talk about how the socialist government urges people to eat their pets to mitigate food shortages or how how children fight over scraps of garbage in the streets. No. The socialists who run Venezuela still have food, power, shelter and medicines. They still live comfortable lives whilst the people enjoy the benefits of socialism bestowed upon them by those who know best and should be obeyed.
For decades now our society has been afflicted by socialism of one shade or another. Successive governments, be they blue or red have taxed the productive to pay for a failing and dysfunctional public healthcare system we are expected to believe is the envy of the world. They use it to fund a bloated welfare state which subsidises the feckless and lazy to breed and produce even more feckless parasites whilst the hard working and productive, the responsible members of society are taxed so hard they can’t afford to have children. They tax us to fund the ever expanding state apparatus, the superfluous and unnecessary government departments, civil service non-jobs and NGOs. Jobs for the boys (and girls)! They tax you and use it to buy votes. You are not allowed to keep the fruits of your own labour. They will be harvested by the state and used to buy the votes of new demographics; the migrants they encourage to come here so they can re-engineer society and change voting patterns in their favour, the growing underclass of non-working, unproductive and unemployable welfare dependents who will vote for the left. They dole out rent free council houses, all the bills paid and pocket money as well to their chosen demographic. They tax you and spend it on themselves; second homes, landscaped gardens, moats, new fitted kitchens, jacuzzi baths and even newspapers. All paid for with your graft.
Well actually no. It isn’t. They spend so much even all of our collective graft, taxed through the bleeding nose isn’t enough to pay for all this. They need to borrow money to fund their profligacy.
Do you know who’s going to have to pay for that borrowing? Who will be left with the astronomical bill and crippling debt?
Your children. Your grandchildren. Your great-grandchildren. That is of course assuming the house of cards financial system doesn’t collapse first.
To be a net contributor to the Exchequer in this country you need to have a household income of at least £40k. Would you be shocked to know 80% of households in this country earn below that income? Do you see how untenable the situation is? How ridiculous and insane it is to believe that we can just tax the rich more to pay for all of this?
It gets worse though. You may sit here nodding your head in agreement with what I’ve written here. Your children or grandchildren however, will be at state schools having their heads filled with leftist drivel by a politicised education system. They are being indoctrinated into the new order by teachers who think Jeremy Corbyn is a cross between Lenin and Father Christmas and will be able to give us everything we need to live happily ever after if he’s just allowed to tax the rich a bit more.
Suppose that once a week, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to £100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this…
The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay £1.
The sixth would pay £3.
The seventh would pay £7.
The eighth would pay £12.
The ninth would pay £18.
And the tenth man (the richest) would pay £59.
So, that’s what they decided to do.
The ten men drank in the bar every week and seemed quite happy with the arrangement until, one day, the owner caused them a little problem. “Since you are all such good customers,” he said, “I’m going to reduce the cost of your weekly beer by £20.” Drinks for the ten men would now cost just£80.
The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes. So the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free but what about the other six men? The paying customers? How could they divide the £20 windfall so that everyone would get his fair share? They realized that £20 divided by six is £3.33 but if they subtracted that from everybody’s share then not only would the first four men still be drinking for free but the fifth and sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer.
So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fairer to reduce each man’s bill by a higher percentage. They decided to follow the principle of the tax system they had been using and he proceeded to work out the amounts he suggested that each should now pay.
And so, the fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (a100% saving).
The sixth man now paid £2 instead of £3 (a 33% saving).
The seventh man now paid £5 instead of £7 (a 28% saving).
The eighth man now paid £9 instead of £12 (a 25% saving).
The ninth man now paid £14 instead of £18 (a 22% saving).
And the tenth man now paid £49 instead of £59 (a 16% saving).
Each of the last six was better off than before with the first four continuing to drink for free.
But, once outside the bar, the men began to compare their savings. “I only got £1 out of the £20 saving,” declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man, “but he got £10!“
“Yeah, that’s right,” exclaimed the fifth man. “I only saved a £1 too. It’s unfair that he got ten times more benefit than me!”
“That’s true!” shouted the seventh man. “Why should he get £10 back, when I only got £2? The wealthy get all the breaks!”
“Wait a minute,” yelled the first four men in unison, “we didn’t get anything at all. This new tax system exploits the poor!” The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.
The next week the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had their beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important – they didn’t have enough money between all of them to pay for even half of the bill!
And that, boys and girls, journalists and government ministers, is how our tax system works. The people who already pay the highest taxes will naturally get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy and they just might not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas, where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.
For those who understand, no explanation is needed.
For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.

This is the great struggle of our times. Assailed on all sides, from without and within our civilisation faces an existential crisis. It would be a grave mistake for us to become too focused on one threat, one front in the war and neglect the others.
This is why we must make sure the red flag is most certainly not kept flying high.
I’ll leave the final word to a former Prime Minister:
