As the ivy that girdles the tree trunk so the Law runneth forwards and back the strength of the pack is the wolf and the strength of the wolf is the pack.
The Law of the jungle by Kipling is probably not very PC to quote but I am reminded of it because I heard a radio host commenting that the Windrush generation debacle could only happen in a society in decline.
I agree with him. We have taken individualism to the point where everyone is pitted against everyone else and kind people are thought of as fair game to betray. Ethics does not exist and the loss of these things has nothing to do with the break up of religion. The death of religions is a wholly good thing, if anything is. The loss of education and the forming of minds to set marketable pattern is the crime.
