Servile serfs?

So you want to be proud of your British heritage? Reclaim your culture? Which one? The one where the aristocracy and their lapdogs suppressed the people, stripped them of their belongings, taxed them beyond measure, stepped over their bodies which were lying in the gutters of city streets?

The culture of sending children to war, oppressing other countries, making it illegal to speak your own tongue – Wales, Ireland and Scotland, oh and yes Cornwall?
The history where you could be prosecuted for speaking out of turn, and imprisoned for debt?

Or

The Heritage of standing against tyranny, of fighting injustice, of communities and families uniting against oppression, not just that focused on ourselves but on others, our culture of standing up against the odds, of unions, of democracy of gaining our rights and safeguarding them for the future by blood, sweat, tears, loss and yes ultimately death? Of sacrificing sparse comfort to force true and fair change?

Is your heritage a flag? A colour? A religion? Are you to be remembered as oppressed, as sheep, as betrayed or betrayer?

Or

Will you be remembered as fighting for a better present, a fairer country, a kinder world?

Will you be fighting for those who tell you that they are your betters because they hold the wealth?

Or

With your equals, your brothers and sisters that have no pretense, that just want the change we all should desire?

The choice is yours, Servile Serf of Freeman/woman fair human!

I am in my 50's (ok 51), I have life challenges but still continue to be a father, a biker, a socialist and a human being. I fight hate and injustice in any way I can. I am me.
