You will own nothing and you will be happy...
I'm not talking about patriotism or nationalism. I'm talking about community. The quote from Moz echoes exactly what I said. What else do the working class have but each other? Community, society, solidarity. Everything that Thatcher despised.Gash - you're lying.
Morrissey in 2012 - one of many statements that are not nationalist - because he has never been nationalist:
I am unable to watch the Olympics due to the blustering jingoism that drenches the event. Has England ever been quite so foul with patriotism? The 'dazzling royals' have, quite naturally, hi-jacked the Olympics for their own empirical needs, and no oppositional voice is allowed in the free press. It is lethal to witness. As London is suddenly promoted as a super-wealth brand, the England outside London shivers beneath cutbacks, tight circumstances and economic disasters.
The royals aren't even English, they're German.
What else did the lyrics and the cover stars of The Smiths celebrate, but working class culture? And in England's big cities, wiped out. Nothing to do with nationalism. I despise nationalism. Always have done. What we're witnessing is the destruction of community. The destruction of society. The eradication of the working class.
