Scozza, you haven't understood my post.

The people who fought in WWII were good people. They were brave. They put themselves in danger to help others. I think their actions were admirable.

These same traits - empathy, altruism, generosity etc are often, today, seen as something to be sneered at. I think sneering at good people is bad.

Clearer?

Or because youíre too scared to answer the rest of posts because it might challenge your opinions.

I guess we should be glad America and Russia went to war otherwise weíd be speaking German eh!

Freedom and equality are part and parcel. You canít be free without equality and you canít be equal without freedom. Not truly anyway.

I only replied to the small part of the post because I wanted clarification on his meaning. Same as I do with yours.

Once again you are talking ****. Go and read Wikipedia about WW2, right up your street, think economics. I bet your one that edits it arenít you

Stop trying to turn my reply around to suit your stupid claims of equality

Oh, so fighting to stop a regime taking over the world isnít about people being able to live freely and not being persecuted and killed for their beliefs and nationalities. You know, having the equal ability to not be ruled by Hitler and to be free.

Guess if you ask a question you only want one person to answer then probably donít put it on a public forum

Edit - funny how you still only reply to small parts of a post...be fun if you gave responding to all of a post a go for once

Nobody has blown their top. I asked a question. And not to you.

And World War Two was about defeating a dictator who wanted to rule the world with his own ideology. Nothing to do with the reasons you mention, equality. They were defending themselves. World war 2, the equality war

Depends on the war doesnít it and the need to fight. Suppose if you donít agree with it then you have the right to refuse. Just like everything else.

Think youíve blown a top unnecessarily over a comment that does actually make sense. People fighting in WW2 were fighting for equality and the cessation of persecution of a particular people. Something people seem to condemn as ďleftyĒ and ďsnowflakeĒ attitudes now. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️
Imagine the outrage from the world if Germans said they wanted to keep a statue of hitler because he was a big part of the history of the country and they shouldnít hide their past

Huge leap from being a part of a country means you HAVE to fight for it...in a hypothetical war...but you canít dislike any tiny part of it because that means youíre not part of the country. Donít tell me youíve never complained about Britain in one form or another

Nice to know we all have our own books

As I suspected then. A load of nonsense really, could be wrong?

You wouldnít say that if it was your child who was forced to go to war to defend our country against a dictator who wanted to rule the world would you?

Not to mention the millions and millions of innocent people that got killed as a consequence of the dictator

You are right about one thing though, if we had to do it all over again their would be loads in our country that would refuse to go to war because it was against their religious believes or they just like the peace, in the bubble they live in. I can see it now, nice old Mr. Hitler knocking on their door. The social justice warrior or would they be classed as cowards? They used to shoot deserters in the war

Now thatís whats wrong for me, if your part of the country you should be prepared to fight for the country. Otherwise your not really part of the country are you? Like a lot of people on here and in our society who like to try and just pick the bits they like and resent anything else they dont

I've no idea why it is, but it often seems that anyone who shows compassion or sympathy, anyone who puts themselves out for the sake of others, anyone who doesn't put themselves and their own interests first, is derided as 'woke', a 'social justice warrior' or a 'do gooder' these days in the UK. Therefore, going off to fight to liberate a load of foreigners would, nowadays, be seen as laughable by a large section of society.

In my book it's just decent behaviour, and anyone who uses 'do-gooder' as an insult needs to take a look at themselves.

But we've all got our own books ...

If WWII were repeated you'd be down the docks calling the troops leaving to fight the Nazis 'do gooders

Lost me there Jon, why is that?

Iím not fed up of it... only money we got to improve the environment was forced on us by the EU. UK government never supplemented it like other countries.
Thatís the scariest thing going forward, the EU forced us to do good by the environment..some has been written in to UK law initially, to be changed at a later date, a lot hasnít.

I was just asking for a friend who isnít a hardcore patriot but doesnít like the EU.
