It's a great post, and it would be even better if there was a link =).
Err. Crap. I'll fix it.
He's got it exactly right.
Even as a stout bulldog, I find little to disagree with in Kim's post.
There is an excellent posting on the Civitas website for January 6th 2005 (link here http://www.civitas.org.uk/blog/archives/2005/01/) which partly explains the start of the rot (although IMHO the rot started a while before this).
The Civitas website can be accessed from here http://www.civitas.org.uk/.
I'd recommend their free published books (look at the top left corner which says "Publivations" or go direct via this link (http://www.civitas.org.uk/books/openAccess.php). I'd particularly recommend the one titled "the West, Islam and Islamism".
There is quite a lot of well though and researched discussion in the blogs (much of it commenting on Britain) but should be of interest to students of creeping socialism. I'd say "Happy reading" but if you DON'T feel uncomfortable after reading this stuff, you are dead from the neck upwards.
