Under New Labour the country is even more unequal than it was under Mrs Thatcher with an ever increasing share of the wealth going to a tiny 1% of the top of society … The social divisions in Britain are hardening and deepening.  Adam Curtis, The Trap II: The Lonely Robot, BBC 2007

 

 

He [Kissinger] set out to do the very opposite: to fracture the power of the Arab countries by dividing them and breaking their alliances so they would keep each other in check … In reality, the Palestinians were ignored.  Adam Curtis, Hypernormalisation, BBC 2016

A wingnut is someone on the far-right wing or far-left wing of the political spectrum – the professional partisans, the unhinged activists and the paranoid conspiracy theorists.  They’re the people who always try to divide rather than unite us.  John Avlon

 

 

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other.  This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.  John Adams, letter to Jonathan Jackson 2nd October 1789

 

 

The reality of human existence in Ireland over the last few centuries has been dominated by the British Empire.  Ireland is the oldest colony in that empire.  Marx summed up the nature of that long imperial rule in a single sentence:

 

‘England has never ruled Ireland in any other way, and cannot rule it in any other way, except by the most hideous reign of terror and the most revolting corruption’.  Four hundred years ago Ireland was ‘planted’ with colonists loyal to the British crown.  Under the cover of the Protestant religion, armed and equipped by the most powerful force on earth, these colonists made Ireland safe for British landlords.  The Irish population was kept in order by consistent and ruthless violence.  Paul Foot, article July 1988, ‘Dividing Ireland’

Far from covering himself in glory, Mountbatten’s actions in extracting Britain from India were to leave a devastating legacy.  Lord Mountbatten: Hero or Villain? Channel 5 2020

I think the great divisions in the country at the present moment are between those who are less affluent – our black citizens, Mexican-Americans and those who are poor whites – and the rest of the United States.  They feel that they have been disenfranchised.  Or that they have no association or identification with the United States government or with our society.  That is the division.  Robert Kennedy

 

 

They keep us divided ... They keep us demoralised ... and they encourage cynicism.  Tony Benn

 

 

Divide and rule.  Early 17th century proverb

 

 

Not into male and female – oh no no no no thats just mere superficial division of minor importance.  No, gentlemen, there is another division, another dichotomy.  More basic, more profound.  At that fateful moment the world was divided into winners and losers.  Top men and underdogs.  In a word the one up and the one down.  Kingsley Amis, Lucky Jim
