Piers BS: Official UK election thread 2005 (105* d) RE: BS: Official UK election thread 2005 25 Apr 05


Have no fear Crystal, there is evidence to suggest that left to their own sordid devices BNP members will kill themselves: see here.

But on a more serious note, I don't think a 'culture' can be belong to anyone. As we socialists are oft pointing out, the right of possesion is also the right to exclude non-possessors. Where would we be, for example, if blues music was the 'property' of its originators?

I don't think folkies have anything to gain from retreating and building walls around the open and evolving traditions of the wherever they live. Also, folkies have nothing to fear because, as shown by numerous historical studies of racism, it is a relatively new phenomenum and I guess they cannot get much support for their irrational beliefs from traditional music.
