People being harmed or abused makes me sad, and angry. I think of the words of William Blake in the hymn Jerusalem when I think of this:
I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword rest in my hand
Til we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.
A lot of the people on Wrong Planet can only focus on the negatives about people and only know how to complain about others, and act nice to other users just so they don't get confronted about it. I'm really sorry to hear that they are directing that towards you. If it means anything, I'd notice and be upset if you stopped posting here.I learned that some of the people on Wrong Planet I thought I was on good terms with are happy I no longer post there.
I feel the same about our cat Liam. He's been gone since September but I still expect to see him come into my room and just be here generally. I miss him so much.Looking at pictures of my dog made me sad because I miss her a lot. She's been gone for only a few months but it feels like forever already.
Have you read Linda Colley's Britons: Forging the Nation 1707-1837 ?
One section talks a fair bit about the role of religion and the likening of England and Britain to being a chosen land and peoples.
