Recovery of the Welsh Culture and what the history books won’t tell you
Post Brexit and the possible great opportunities
The WCE persists in its plight to restore cultural nationalism
• Establishment intellectuals ostracize those who speak the truth.
• Wales’ energy and natural resource industries have been squandered while other nations reap the rewards.
• To compete internationally, Wales needs to concentrate on its private sector.
• Knowledge of accurate history binds people to their nation.
• Wales must reclaim its place in history so not to suffer another millennium of oppression.
National Assembly for Wales, Cardiff Bay, Cardiff
Many publications both in the US and the UK, particularly Welsh, abhor the June “Brexit vote.” Some blasted the voter’s intellect and others embarked on elitist rants continuing their socialist mantra. The vote count reveals that zero districts in Scotland and Northern Ireland voted “leave.”
What’s most surprising is that the UK national “leave” voters were 51.9 percent and stunningly in Wales, 52.5 percent of voters opted to exit the European Union. Furthermore the “leave” vote by region in Wales reveals the fact that only five out of 22 regions voted to “remain” in the EU.
Undoubtedly, Wales said something big, and either no one is listening or the media is censoring because of a culture of biased agenda. We think it might be a little of both.
Wales has suffered more than most from liberal economics and from political devotees in Britain, Europe and America. The 2012 Eurozone debt crisis alone left every family in Britain an average £18,000 poorer. Swathes of manufacturing jobs have left for cheap-labor nations, never to be replaced, and in some deprived areas of Wales, we see a third generation of unemployed people living on state handouts.
Now, energy and natural resources have become a prominent industry in Wales’ replacing a once-burgeoning mining industry. However, both have been grossly and irresponsibly mishandled.
Politicians don’t want anyone to know that most of the water captured by English-built dams in Wales goes to England. National government developers flooded entire villages to build the dams and relocated residents. The eyesore windmills that scour the Welsh countryside are horribly inefficient and have no economic benefit. If we attempt to place a cost/benefit analysis upon the environment, archaeological and ecological loss, there would be no “green gain.”
Before his death in April, Sir David Mackay, chief scientific advisor to the Department of Energy and Climate Change admitted that even if wind turbines covered 10 percent of the UK, they would provide an intermittent power supply at best. No one ever calculated the detrimental effects of their rusting hulls, rotting concrete underground or the unrecyclable composite blades. Fact remains that Wales supplies more than half of its electricity to England with five times the density of wind turbines in Wales compared to England.
The problem in Wales is the immigration of people who lean heavily on health and social resources rather than contributing to national wealth. These immigrants have little interest, if any, in furthering our most unique customs and culture, yet while pols (the government) cater to their every need, these newcomers dilute our population.
The ancient texts show that the Welsh government, then kings, made their primary purpose thwarting invaders who tried to settle in Wales. King Arthur I, in the early fourth century, fought off the Romans. Arthur II, in the early- to mid-sixth century, pushed back invading Saxons.
But it seems like in 1300, after the Norman King Edward I murdered Welsh King Morgan, the Welsh began to lose their country. Control of the Welsh Kingdom has withered ever since, but national pride has never truly diminished.
Britain has to begin with home-grown manufacturing that pays normal taxation rates. All private sector services suck the life from a manufacturing industry that could pay living wages to thousands now without work. Politicians with no knowledge of private industry seem to think that creating jobs in the public sector helps the nation. It does not. Their pay comes increasingly out of loans, not from the private sector. Many economies simply borrow money, which they can never pay back.
Yet there is no anger in Wales.
Acceptance? Yes – perhaps until now.
Welsh author Terry Breverton took part in and provided poems for the 600th celebration of the beginning of Owain Glyndŵr’s War of Independence at Machynlleth. The former international rugby star Ray Gravelle, joined by a current television presenter, was to hand the sword over to the mayor. But at the last minute, they were replaced by the French consul for Wales, who made a gracious speech and knew the history of the French support for the greatest of all Welsh heroes. The BBC told Gravelle and the presenter that they would be in trouble if they attended. The BBC did not want to be associated with what it thought was a nationalist celebration.
Suffice to say, we know how Gravelle must have felt. The Welsh Cultural Endeavor of Northeastern Pennsylvania, in its ongoing efforts to expose significant differences between established academics and religious clerics and rock-solid historical evidence, has organized several top-notch events highlighting Welsh history and culture over the 10 years. Notably, this past March, we hosted Pulitzer Prize nominee Dr. Lee Pennington of Kentucky who presented an astounding rendition of the second King Arthur and his brother, Prince Madoc, coming to America in the mid-sixth century.
Killed during a battle with American Indians, King Arthur’s remains were returned to his native Wales. Ten different accounts tell of his funeral and the two places of interment. Despite requests for help from the secular press and paid advertisements in Welsh media to promote Dr. Pennington’s visit, the media replied with little more than the sound of crickets.
As no Welsh politician appears to have any vision beyond extending socialism, it is doubtful that many in power truly understand the magnificent history we have in our blood.
It is shameful that Wales is dying economically and culturally. Instead of rooting out the problem, the pols and media make accusations of racism and bigotry. They ignore that multiculturalism brings with it enormous costs and a loss of national values that we once so cherished as being Cymry.
National culturalism costs nothing, yet it is priceless to our people and other nations admire it. We can prove that real Welsh history was rarely or never taught and has been deliberately misrepresented. Most of us know who we are, yet 57 percent of the world knows nothing about Wales.
Our Christian and pre-Christian history is backed by solid evidence. We can show that we the Welsh – really known as the Khumry, Kimmeroi, and now Cymry – are without question the 10 Tribes of Israel as noted even by the ancient Assyrian records. We can associate the Holy Family with the lineage of the Welsh Kings.
Wales also is a place steeped in great Christian faith. The four Welsh Christian Revivals – over a period of about 200 years in the 1700s, 1800s and early 1900s – brought a moral reconstruction to Wales and sweeping conversions to Christianity for its people.
The eisteddfod, the unique pride of the Welsh tradition furthers our quest for excellence in poetry, prose and music performance.
Our organization chooses to be different and has taken a higher road than government, academia and the establishment church. We firmly believe that knowing the truth will set us free and lead us to be recognized as a culture with roots that trace back to civilization’s foundation. We focus on bringing truth to the forefront while encouraging the Cymry in self-worth, individualism and the entrepreneurial spirit to become independent again as a nation – a nation forged by a highly-literate and well-educated people thousands of years ago.
Can we say that history is what truly binds us to a country? Could Brexit be the apparatus that shakes up the establishment and peels back the first layer of bondage ushering us as a people toward independence?
Cymru am byth!
