A filthy, degraded country

England, Dalrymple points out to an interviewer, is a corrupt country. Not in the way that, for instance, Italy is corrupt, but morally and intellectually corrupt, which is worse. The educational system has been ruined, there are large social problems (of which public drunkenness is an example), and the country is the dirtiest in Europe — Britishers routinely fling rubbish out of car windows to pollute the beautiful countryside, for instance. There has been a cultural revolution in the country, making it quite the opposite of what it once was.

Britain’s bogus charities

Screen Shot 2016-08-11 at 08.53.05When you give money to a large charity, writes Dalrymple,

you are not so much being generous as voluntarily paying more tax, for many charities are de facto subcontractors to the State. The government is usually by far the largest single donor.

Therefore you should remember that

he who pays the piper calls the tune.

Such charities, Dalrymple points out, are

misrepresenting themselves to the public.

It is not only financial corruption that you should fear, he says,

but even more the moral corruption of which this dishonesty is an example.
