And now to clear up a few questions which arose in other parts of Skadi while I was banned.

An Dearg Doom said she was lost on the Ken situation (my name is Ken, btw) since I stopped thinking of myself as Irish.

Here goes:

I know I'm part Irish. I'm more than part-Irish, I'm overwhelmingly Irish by blood, with some English and Spanish mixed in. Yet I identify myself as a British Australian. Why? Milesian suggested it's because Skadi turned Germanic and I might have taken this as a slight rejection of 'half-breeds'. An Dearg Doom later suggested in the same thread it might be because I'm 'confused', being mixed British-Irish by ancestry.

My answer my shed some light on the situation.

I am an Australian. I was born into a country under the Union Jack, my grandfather risked his life fighting against Japanese to defend this country from being eventually annihilated. I'd identified myself with the British Empire since I was conscious of what an Australian means. When I used to stay at my grandmother's house when I was five I used to look at the massive map of the British Empire that hung on the wall, and ask 'that's Australia - why is it red like Canada and England and India?', and my grandfather would say 'Because we were part of the British Empire'.

When I went to school the next year, we started talking about Australian history, and the teacher said 'A long time ago, the British came and conquered the aboriginies and Australia became a colony of the Empire'. To be honest, apart from an appetite for explosives (:)) and my genes, I haven't inherited much from Ireland. I don't know to put it, really. I'm not English but I am British.

About 'being confused'. I'm in favour of national self determination, and I think N. Ireland will eventually unite with the Republic of Ireland simply by demographics. I'm an Australian, Australia is a white British Australia, and in any conflicts between Ireland and Britain I'd rather identify with neither side and advocate the rest of Britain's white former colonies form a federation of sorts under the leadership of a white America, and leave the old world to sort things out its own way.

Also: why I got banned by Suomut

LG got banned, I had an argument with Suomut about it, LG had no idea why she got banned (her complaint against the Islam subsection being closed, she called the decision stupid). I told LG why she got banned in Suomut's own words (I quoted from a PM exchange), and then I took a screenshot of my own post (which was in the staff section) which did not show anyone else's post, and showed that to LG. After I was banned I called Suomut a bastard and said that Skadi would go downhill under his leadership. The 'grand public exit' was a post I'd intended to call Suomut a traitor to Njörd's principles of free speech and open debate, explaining exactly why I'd taken all sorts of contradictory positions over the last few years in discussions, and a few other now-irrelevant things.

Yet I identify myself as a British Australian. Why?Well, in the nineteenth century, Ireland was part of the United Kingdom so in fact Irishmen who settled in Australia at the time are usually designated as British.

Added to that is the fact that Ireland is part of the "British" Isles so in that sense the Irish are still British (in the same way that both Swedes and Danes are Scandinavian, and both Spaniards and Portuguese are Iberian), and have been such ever since the Isles have been known by that name. The Romans sometimes referred to the Irish as "the Britons of Hibernia" ;).

They might have been designated as Brits but they still knew what an Irishman was if you asked them :p

Now copy the 'name age location occupation religion' etc. thing and fill it in with your own information so we can try keep this as the post-Suomut introduction thread, and not a rambling debate on whether Irish Australians are British Australians or not :P

They might have been designated as Brits but they still knew what an Irishman was if you asked them :pOf course. Scots and English very well knew what a Scotsman and an Englishman were too, but they were still British :P

Ah but Scots didn't have a civil war to try drive out the English early on in the past century, did they?

You're not going to provide a dossier on yourself, are you?

The only point I'm making is that there's nothing illogical or odd about an Irishman or Australian of Irish descent considering himself British in a sense.


You're not going to provide a dossier on yourself, are you?Nah, just had a few points to make :D.

Then he's not really an Irishman is he? ;) :D

Pffft. You suck. Now provide the dossier before the SWAT team comes to make you answer it ;)

It is allowable to call an officer a Bastard?

An officer? In what sense, if any, was he an officer?

Then he's not really an Irishman is he? ;) :D Yes, he is, that's the point I'm making. He can be British in a sense and an Irishman, just as a Dane can also be Scandinavian, it's just a matter of definition; Ireland is not part of the island of Britain (nor any longer the of United Kingdom), but it is part of the British Isles. ;)

They're holding off in the belief you'll be kind enough to answer your dossier. They have unlimited time and they're very well concealed so don't expect to find them if you go looking ;)

*blinks* This was my 2000th post.

Well...

I don't recall him being comissioned or non-commissioned. I don't recall swearing alliegence to him, so I'm wondering how he was my officer...

I say it's ok to speak the truth, especially against tyrants :D

I have yet to meet anyone else on the internet who actually demanded obedience and love while granting the alternative of exile.

That's just - gay.

This is a good stance I think; conditional love is not really love.

We could therefore call a demand for reciprocating loyalty and obedience on this basis a disingenuous exchange, making a mockery of several virtues that may be needed to help make our societies better.

Your grandfather participated in the last noble war which was against the Japanese. Australia was threatned more than anybody wanted to openly say. Australians fought very well and are good people as far as I am concerned.
