British Populace Formally Deprived of Fully Free Status.


Is this a spoof, parody, or joke?

"This campaign really isn't aimed at the hardened gangster, who's not going to be affected by the advertising, but at people who could drift into knife crime, could get into it because of peer pressure or because of some misguided feeling that this will offer them protection.
"In a survey, 46 per cent of youngsters in Newcastle said they carried around a knife with them. That's a horrifying statistic.
"We have got to get the message through: this is illegal, it is very, verydangerous. You could end up yourself being injured or, worse still, on impulse inflicting some mortal injury on a friend."

Norman Brennan, director of the Victims of Crime Trust, said knife crime was out of control in Britain and called for the introduction of tough mandatory prison sentences.
He said anyone caught in possession of a blade in excess of 3ins, without reasonable excuse, to face a minimum jail sentence of five years.

Other proposals include raising the age at which people can legally purchase knives from 16 to 18 and giving teachers power to search pupils for knives at school.

What in the name of Klono's Curving Carballoy Claws is going on in the UK?

I don't just ask because I've got a folding 4 1/2" single-edged leaf-bladed dagger on my belt in the back and a 5" fixed blade survival knife on my dropleg, as well as a Gerber multi-tool with a blade a bit under 3" also on my belt.

You know, it used to be that the United Kingdom required every free male to own and be proficient with military weaponry. They took away guns, and made it damn near impossible to buy shotguns, and now they are confiscating replica Klingon swords and bowie knives??

The English are descended from Germanic tribes, primarily Angles, Saxons, and Jutes. Their aristocracy was descended from Normans, which is what happens when Norse men marry Frankish women. Good Germans all around. Here's the key to understanding this in cultural terms.

In any Germanic society, all free men carried weapons. All of them. Free women would too, if necessary. But that was the differentiation between free men, and those whose status was semi-free or unfree. I'm not saying you have to carry to be a free citizen. But you have to have that option availible to you if you desire to exercise it. If not, you are either a serf or a slave, to be disposed of as your master desires.

It once again points to media and political cowardice. Rather than saying there is something wrong in society (and how people are raising their children) they are blaming the tools used in crimes.

My final retort to all these is,

"Would it make you any happier, little girl, if theys was pushed out of windows?"

You will take my weapons from me when I am dead, and you remove them from my cold hands.

I am not kidding, btw.

Reministent of a certain scene in "Red Dawn." But yes, the idea of sword control in Britain is just nuts, given their history. Going after Trekkies over a bat leth? Next they will go after Lord of the Rings Fans for their replicas.
