Acts of 'God'.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: If Labour does not win this election then over the next 10 years I will witness the rest of Britain suffering what, for the last 10 years, muslim Britain has suffered. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: It doesn't surprise me, therefore, that as we approach election day a very real threat of a Corbyn defeat hangs in the air.

Removal of resistance: Nothing is certain. Unification: Perhaps Corbyn WILL win, insha allah. It's not my business to hope or not hope for x or y. What I can see is that for many many years, for most of my adult life, being a muslim in Britain has been like being a jew in an anti-semitic country, maybe Victor Orban's country. The insult of pretending that an attempt to make Britain less islamophobic is itself 'anti-semitic' is low and disgusting and an insult to the memory of victims of the jewish holocaust. That this is followed up with claims that 'anti-semitism' is a 'world view' - ie a view that genocide against muslims is bad is translated into the notion that genocide against muslims is the main way of fighting anti-semitism and that 'therefore' people who oppose genocide against muslims (eg by the USA, by Israel, by NATO) are labelled 'anti-semitic' in a particularly childish word game, by racists like Angela Smith and Tony Blair and Jo Swinson and Boris Johnson, suggests to me that maybe the rest of Britain WILL INDEED get to find out over the next 10+ years what being a British muslim has felt like for the last 20+ years. Still fair enough. If your kids deserve to be shat on the way you have shat on others, let me not be the one to pretend that 'socialism' means saving you.

Anyway. If you vote for yourselves and your children to suffer the abuse and pain you have made British muslims suffer for a while, and you do so out of hatred of muslims, out of hatred of people who stand up for everyone, for muslims 'too', that sums you up and boils you down.

Survival of the 'fittest' means survival of people who share food with each other, not people who beat each other up. Take a look at the history of this planet. No animal which behaves the way British and American racists and militarists do has NOT been subjugated by nature or made extinct. We, the monkey people who told jokes, hung around together, used a thing called 'mutual aid' and shared food with each other, we now dominate the planet. Those among us who behave like all the lower creatures which didn't make it this far, who act as though the way to survive is by dominating others and using force, they are putting us all at risk, not only themselves, but in the end even if we do not become extinct, humans who believe in mutual aid, humans who do not believe in mutual aid will obviously become extinct.

One other thing is very clear in all of this: in the eyes of the universe and of history (that told by the Chomskys and Feynmans and so many like them, not the rancid public relations of crusaders and dodge merchants) Corbyn has already fully won. Whatever electoral games anyone plays, an assessment of the actions and words of all parties concerned shows what has happened here. If humans are too much like gold fish and too little like mountains then, perhaps, as with so many lessons history has learned, humanity will continue to not learn it, in the main. Although nature's not really going to allow that to go on very much longer, is it?
