First, before a declining civilization lets the traditions that define it die, it allows them to be gutted of meaning and reduced to a farce. Christ-free Christmases are one example; elections in which one candidate wins every single vote in wide areas and the opposition party doesn’t complain are another. Other examples are less harmful than symbolic. Nothing could be more symbolic of the former greatness of Britain than the pomp and ceremony of the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace — which no longer looks like it used to:
Sikhs have served in the Scots Guard before, but in the past they wore bearskins like the rest. However, now the ostentatious promotion of “diversity” takes priority over heritage.
What laughs we will have when militant nudists of the type who have been running amok at San Francisco Board of Supervisors meetings join the Scots Guard and demand not to be discriminated against.
