I got caned after assembly with two other lads for making them laugh.
The head was reading the 'lesson' about the flood and when he said 'God drowned all the living beings' I wondered out loud 'How did he drown the fish'?
Apparently philosophical thought was not to be encouraged.

These groups had names associated with their allegiance but I don't care to give them publicity.
So in sharing that, its a message of how sad it is, what the few do to ruin things for others.
I listened to this podcast this morning. It made me remember this discussion. If anyone is interested in how these movements gain strength in England, this is an interview about a man who explains how he got involved. It's especially important to understand this if you are a parent.

“You can binge watch an ideology in a weekend,” says Tony McAleer. He should know. A former white supremacist, McAleer was introduced to neo-Nazi ideology through the U.K. punk scene in the 1980s. But after his daughter was born, he embarked on a decades-long journey from hate to compassion.
