For those under 35, I blame the schools. Nowadays, if a white guy tries to assert himself , the law will crack down on him. The best that could happen is that you will be fired from your job and your reputation and career be ruined.
It was a surreal scene watching two crazed Africans walk around for twenty minutes after butchering the British soldier in London this past week. As for as I can tell not one White man took any action other than recording one of the killers on his cell phone. I saw some White men standing off in the background looking paralyzed. Couldnâ€™t they have grabbed some tire irons, umbrellas (they make good weapons) or something and surrounded these two lunatics? I think the gruesome situation warranted keeping the murderers at bay. Who knew at the time whether the killing had stopped? What else is disturbing is that women seem to be the only ones to put themselves in harmâ€™s way and the men folk let it happen.
Excellent mini-book and well worth the time to read 26 pages. Glubb was a decorated English officer living in colonized India for much of his life (as I recall). This text was fascinating and changed my forward thinking. Minus the specifics, the miserable state of society in the US and Europe was already predictable back then (the 60s?). I'd never before considered patterns within larger blocks of time, guilty of the same myopic blinders that inhibit the arguments of modern conservative commentary.
Not an optimistic take, but as the text pertains to answer the OP's question, white men act like pussies because Eden is burning, just like it always, inevitably does.
Great link, Old Scratch. I wasn't aware the text was back online - I remember there was a copyright issue with Glubb's estate (the family didn't want it hosted for free and couldn't be bothered to self-publish). Might be useful to save to the ol' hard drive.
