Western civilization at the present day is passing through a crisis which is essentially different from anything that has been previously experienced. Other societies in the past have changed their social institutions or their religious beliefs under the influence of external forces or the slow development of internal growth. But none, like our own, has ever consciously faced the prospect of a fundamental alteration of the beliefs and institutions on which the whole fabric of social life rests ... Civilization is being uprooted from its foundations in nature and tradition and is being reconstituted in a new organisation which is as artificial and mechanical as a modern factory.

Most of the problems we face today can be traced back to a school in Germany. The Frankfurt School. The Frankfurt school was a collection of German and American students in Germany, who debated on Marxist theory. After WW1 the great fall of capitalism, as prophecised by Marx didn't occur. They decided that The West couldn't be broken from outside, so why not break it from inside? The school itself was at first little more than a classroom in Frankfurt University, it then grew into an institute in 1927.
In the 1930's times became tough in Germany for Communist groups, so they fled to the USA and Western Europe. There they infiltrated Western society through Universities. After WW2, their way of thinking was still not being grafted properly onto The West. The 1950's was a staunchly conservative and button down period of the 20th century. The 1960's however was an orgy of cultural destruction. This period was when the ''useful idiots'' came of age and started protesting about..well everything. That was one of the key elements in provoking the coming glorious people's revolution. To criticise everything old, and bring in something new, something Marxist.
This cultural razor blade swept through every sphere of public life. Now every school and university, every television station, every newspaper, every government, every political party, every organ of state has a ''socialist sleeper cell'. They're not all acting in harmony, all in each others confidence to bring down capitalism. No not by any means. However they share the same views and so find common allies. If you don't share their views, then of course your ''racist, xenophobic, fascist or bigoted''.
The EU is swarming with these cretons. Not just is Cultural Marxism being promoted in the EU, its being institutionalised as the law.
Do a little research, the EU from conception was supposed to lead to a super state. The totalitarian instincts of the European-Left are evident in every town in Europe.
What does this have to do with Australia's relationship with Britain? Everything. One example of how the EU ''stole'' Britain from its rightful Anglosphere throne is the case of the New Zealand sheep farmers. As much as 40% of New Zealands wool exports went to the UK. When Britain joined the EU, its trade became nearly strictly European. The poor farmers were left with their exports halved if not more. Most of New Zealands rural communities have still not forgiven them. The signing of the ANZUS Treaty, brought Australia into a closer relationship with the United States. This was a mistake. If Britain had been able to retain a closer relationship with Australia, then we wouldn't have been dragged of into Korea and Vietnam. Of course the UK took us to Malaysia, but defence of immediate borders are more vital than far flung corners of Asia.
In a sick twist, the more the West tangled with Communism, whether in the jungles of Vietnam, or a university campus, the more it seemed to become contaminated. It reminds me of a quote by Friedrich Nietziche '' He who fights with monsters, take care lest ye thereby become a monster ''. The end product of the swirling chaos of the 1960's and mid 1970's is this modern world we have now.

This civilisation of ours is on the brink of collapse. I'm sure if our pioneer ancestors knew what nation they were building, they wouldn't have even got off the boat. The once great Western World, collapsed in under one hundred years. Ask a gentlemen walking round Paris in 1903 what the city will look like in 2003. He couldn't imagine the horrors (like the one above) that exist, and are common.
That is a very brief, but accurate description of how Marxism undermined civilisation. In doing so, turned once undividable bonds into casual friendships. But how did Britain lose its empire in under thirty years? It is more to do with bankruptcy than Marxism, and more to do with rebellions and a worn out super power. However it is interesting never the less, to investigate such touchy subjects.
The British Empire never fell as such, it just broke up bit by bit. This was prompted by the UN and the United States. The ''special relationship'' is really not so special. Remember how much help the US was in the Falklands War? Indian Independence and the Mau Mau rebellion were blows to imperial pride. The Suez Crisis proved the empire was over, the handing over of Hong Kong made it official. Since 1997, whats left of the ''empire'' if you could say that, is slipping. In 2013 there will be referendum in the Falklands. It is very clear which way the votes will swing, but the fact is Britain is being bullied by what is essentially little more than a drug lab with a national flag.
Marxism really stirred up anti-imperial fervour in post war Britain. It also prompted ''Empire Guilt'', a near fatal disease that infects many millions of Britons. This post is depressing, but its the truth. It is up to you the reader, to strengthen ties between the Anglosphere.
It all starts at a grassroots level, the community. Church and public gatherings are the best places to rebuild that community. Then a national level, this is beyond the means of us, but one can dream that there may be a strong leader in the future. You see, Marxism only wins if you ignore it. Like a wound left to turn cystic, the longer it goes untreated the worse and more deadly it becomes.
The empire may not be coming back, but there is a future to look forward to. I for one look at the future with hope, that one day people will see through the socialist blinkers and retake their culture, rightfully theirs. It all starts with you.
