I heard there are lots of scenes of soldiers lining up in queues in DUNKIRK. That shows both the positive and negative side of Brits. They are used to following orders and going by rules. This made them better fighters in many occasions, but it also makes them more servile and robot-like before the higher power. This sense of doing everything by the book and together has a muffling effect on the individual who might say ‘shiite!’ British did much to develop modern individualism, but deference to class was always a bit thing in Britain. Form was always important, like when a lower class person had to tip his hat and say “aye guv’nor” to a superior.
Since the 60s, the class thing went away on the surface. The working class got boorish and then got into punk music and then turned into soccer hooligans. But mindsets die hard. Class deference is gone, but the culture of form-and-deference is still very much alive. Since the New Holy is diversity & decadence, the hoity-toity virtues now defer to Africans, Muslims, and Homos while turning up the nose at good patriotic whites who are tempted to shout ‘darkies go home’. Consider . Rowling, the Harry Potter authoress. She’s a hoiter-toiter in her prim priggish finger-wagging and nose-upturning.
