When I was young, we were taught at school that as we lived in a post-modern and affluent multicultural society, we had the moral and ‘legal’ right to choose our own identities, and to pick any aspect of any culture (or none) that suited the best way that we felt, expressed our inner ideals and values in the outer world. Although we were technically ‘British’, and possessed many different ethnicities (such as English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Indian, Chinese, or West Indian, etc), we had no ‘ideological’ notion whereby we ‘objectified’ our own identity, or related in any way to a racist ‘nationalism’ as professed by the far-right neo-Nazi ‘National Front’, or any number of its off-shoots or imitators. There was no need to emphasis our national identity (as we were ‘naturally’ the product of the prevailing culture), and we were not forced to relate to a ‘sterile’ notion of ‘Britishness’ – as our children are today. Teaching our children to be exclusively ‘British’ is a fascist tendency that separates ‘us’ from ‘everyone else’, and actually encourages racism and discrimination. This ‘mainstreaming’ of fascist ideology in the UK has been one of the most telling victories of the British far-right and Tory political establishment that ensures British racism is replicated from one generation to the next. This ‘narrowing’ of identity is nothing less than ‘Cultural Hitlerism’ that prevents Socialism and the propagation of ‘Internationalism’. We have the right to be ‘different’ in the UK under British Law, EU Law and International Law – but a succession of rightwing Tory, LibDems and New Labour governments has continuously ‘negated’ these laws, and actively engaged in the propagation of a racist, nationalist mythology, that falsely implies that British culture is ‘superior’ to any other culture. This is wrong and all British people should be aware about this dangerous indoctrination of our children’s minds. Children should be taught that they are ‘free’ to choose their own identity, and to think how they want without fear of governmental oppression.
