Britain is coming apart at the seams:
The Holy Thorn tree on Wearyall Hill in Glastonbury, Somerset, is regarded as one of Britain’s most important symbols of Christendom, and is said to be derived from the original planted by Joseph of Arimathea.
The tree is one of several Holy Thorns located around Glastonbury but is arguably the most significant because of its placing on the spot where Joseph visited.
Each year a sprig from another Holy Thorn tree in the town is cut for the Queen, a tradition which dates back more than 100 years. The Queen places the sprig on her dining room table on Christmas Day. The cutting ceremony took place on Wednesday, hours before the overnight attack.
Police are trying to establish a motive for the attack, in which vandals hacked off the branches of the tree, leaving only part of the trunk remaining. They have not ruled out a religious motive.(Meanwhile, in the city...)
Socialism is when taxes continue to rise while services evaporate. Socialism defaces civilization and erases history. Socialism is the evil belief that neither individual man nor God have Will; only the presentist collective, the oligarchs, and the mysterious and abstract "authority" of secular ideals deserve worship. So Glastonbury lost its tree, so students lost their "free" education. At the heart of it all is forgetfulness, narcissism, and frankly, the abandonment of reason.
