Not everyone can boast having a gold-plated wheelchair.
Great movie, BTW.

In the 50s you had Angry Young Men, now replaced by Establishment figures. Shakespeare summarised it very eloquently

"a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

Dismal.

Can anyone join? Can we get a discount if I can muster up some freedom-loving people?

You could have Freedom Union Runners evenings, like in the old days. Toby buys the first round and a plate of chips for those attending.

And an Amsterdam chapter.

I’ve been trying to find out how one proves one is not a white supremacist. I asked my Polynesian/Chinese/... wife and my mixed race children. They were flummoxed. So I called some exes (Muslim, Jewish,...), no concrete suggestions either. I’m seeing the Caribbean side of the family next week and will ask. I’ll report back.

You'd need to say frankly that, being a white person, all you've gained in your life is little the fruit of the work you put in it but mostly that of the centuries long injustice.

You’d rather have yourself tattooed (ouch!) than say that ;-P

Yawn.

On the other hand, I may need to revise my views on Liberal Post-Modernism (or is it  Post-Modern Liberalism?)

Nice!

The classic Peterson is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMcjxSThD54 My favourite part is when the interviewer, Cathy Newman, loses the ability to speak.
