Periodically I am asked details about myself, and I routinely answer to the effect that I cannot answer. I am not being standoffish by this reluctance to part with personal information. Rather I am being cautious.
Some years ago when I was far too trusting (and perhaps to confident) for my own good, I did verbal battle with a group of internationalists. The outcome of our discourse was that I was followed home, and in the early hours of the morning, my flat was firebombed. A neighbour called the police, who asked me what I had done to deserve being attacked! A short while afterwards, a parcel with wires sticking out of it was placed under my car. I very much doubt that the parcel was anything to worry about, but the message I was sent was clear enough - I had stepped on the wrong toes, and the attack against my flat was to be but the start. My rental period was nearly over anyway, so I took the opportunity to move to a new location. Since that time, I have been more cautious with regards to giving out personal information.
It is not brave and heroic to make oneself an easy target. By using a pseudonym, and keeping all identifiable information to myself, I am protecting my family. Does it really matter who I am? In a war for freedom against a police state with its violent 'politically correct' foot-soldiers, the only weapon we have available to us is the truth, and the will to speak the truth. In the grander scheme, our individual identities are meaningless. There are those who seek glory, and in the pursuit of it sacrifice their children's future. I am not amongst them.
It may seem pointless to keep information private, when we all know that the police have all our details and internet activity on record. It is the useful idiots who ally themselve to the State but do not know it, who we need to protect ourselves against. One day we will have to openly do battle with the collaborators, but that time is not now. As the struggle gets harder, and the power of the enemy increases, it is the duty of each and every one of us to keep ourselves safe for the time when we may have to make the ultimate sacrifice. We will not be able to help our kin if we are neutralised now, when we can avoid it.
The UK is a dangerous place. A little caution now, will serve us well for the future. Security is a good habit to get into.
