Childish White Resentment

To have a grievance is to have a purpose in life.

Image of Philosopher Eric HofferEric Hoffer (1902-83). The Passionate State of Mind, aphorism 166 (1955). Hoffer adds: It not infrequently happens that those who hunger for hope give their allegiance to him who offers them a grievance.

At about 16:15, on Friday, 23 December 2016 in Tunbridge Wells Public Library, I was using PC09 while someone using PC12 logged‑off and then said something – sotto voce – and unintelligible into my ear; invading my personal space in the process.

Even though his face was close to mine, I still could not clearly hear what he lacked the moral courage to say out‑loud. No doubt the Library Service’s non‑existent CCtv (of whose existence I was informed‑of on Saturday, 30 May 2015) will have captured this incident.

Another person was talking to him – someone whose pestering of me on Monday, 23 November 2015 I had earlier complained of.

If this would‑be thuggishness is how White people wish to play the game of life, it proves that signs in the library demanding (unearned) respect only apply to those Whites who can achieve no other kind – especially the self‑respect hinted‑at in Debrett’s Etiquette & the fantasist British Way of Life (BWOL). They clearly believe that such an escalation will enable them to indulge their erroneous belief that they can do as‑they‑please in public. But this lack of self‑discipline is a game anyone can play.

Yours Sincerely,

Expect Respect

Postscript: Obviously, this person’s sense of whom he is, is based on his false sense of who I am; a form of emotional‑dependency that cannot gain him the lazily‑obtained identity he desires without my consent. This will never be forthcoming since my identity is based on my unaided accomplishments, not upon the failings of others – nor upon failings I can induce by intimidation and harassment. Relationships offering no positive value never produce the false‑affirmation sought which, as grown‑ups, should be achievable without the unwilling help of strangers they would never befriend.
