A Lament for the English

Reader comment on item: U.K. Muslim Population Surges

Submitted by Anglo-American (United States), Feb 8, 2009 at 13:25

It is sad that the culture that gave us Chaucer, Shakespeare, John Locke, Jonathan Swift, Alfred Tennyson, Sir Issac Newton, and so many other great poets, philosophers, and scientists is letting itself slowly fade away within its very own borders. The English civilization gave many of the greatest gifts to the world, including the political traditions that Americans enjoy to this day. How did this once proud people go from having an empire on which the sun never set to sitting passively by as their populations dwindle and are replaced by peoples far removed from the Anglo tradition? This is what happens when a people is taught to hate and revile its own history and culture and in turn embrace hedonism and political correctness.
