WalkaboutsVerse the uk folk revival in 2019 (330* d) RE: the uk folk revival in 2019 07 Oct 19


"the right wing nationalists" Dave...so if someone does not like capitalism NOR economic/CAPITALIST immigration but they do love our world/our UN being multicultural, including their own folk music, would you say they are "left wing nationalists"?...and, given that, are you sure, Jim, that Ewan MacColl would not be among the latter?

Traditions exist because folks have been impressed by THEIR OWN forebears way of doing things - against which is the relentless promotion by government and media here now of internal ethnic diversity (not that long ago "assimilation" was the go - remember?).

Modern England and the cargo cults of Papua New Guinea are among the more extreme examples of locals being badly over-impressed by others - say the very basics in broken English, e.g., and you too can be a wealthy "Premier" League manager!

For too many modern English, their idea of culture is going out to support a wealthy world 11, after a night of Indian curry and American pop or rock.

My background - my first job being as an assistant milk vendor, I've worked in factories and offices in Australia and England, travelled on a shoe-string through about 40 countries, and majored in anthropology, including the study of Aboriginal "Land Rights"

"Education has nothing to do with intelligence and opportunity is everything" (Jim Carroll)...I'm a 100% sure that education can change what we believe in and where we end up.
