    Mohammed Ali Jinnah was not a hero
    Neither was Gandhi. I don't get why India has to be partitioned, just make it a big secular state as it is now.

    So much injustice happened at that time, it's unreal.
    If things had gone differently, I can't begin to imagine the power "India" would've had now

    I heard that Gandhi was racist against black people

    The idea was to wind people up... Mission accomplished.

    If I actually thought that I would have backed it up in the first post

    You didn't wind me up. I just wanted to show that there's no logical reason for actually thinking that, because many people do claim to think that.

    1) Facism had more good idea's than bad ones. Sadly the biggest ones such as racism are the only aspects people remember these days.

    2) Everyone should serve in the military and be willing to kill or be killed for their nation to get the vote.

    3) Politicians should not be paid, banned from working, although should be supported in a manner that allows them to live comfortably.

    4) Democracy is not automatically a good thing, democracies have many negatives that warrant a new partially democratic system being created.

    5) Being obese should be illegal.

    6) Our military should be stronger

    7) People are too unwilling these days for our country to go to war

    8) The nation forms a type of Symbiosis with it's citizens. The state should serve the people and the people should serve the state.

    9) All education should be free

    10) Benefits should be much stricter, although we do still need reserve labour.

    -The UK should become a Federal Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy with 12 Federal States, each with their own Federal Assembly.
    -The House of Commons should be elected by PR
    -Defence spending should be reduced to 1.2% GDP (from 2.3%) and armed forces should focus on defending UK borders and providing humanitarian aid. The UK should leave NATO.
    -The UK should become a permanently neutral country (like Austria, Switzerland, Sweden).

    Which is why I used that one. It's so stupid a thing that people actually think it

    No, that's a terrible idea. The best way to learn a language is the process of immersion i.e. surrounding yourself with native speakers using the language in a everyday way.

    Yeah, but you should at least learn a chunk of it. Rather than look like a buffoon cause you don't understand they're saying.

    It isn't really necessary for English-speakers (especially if the country's in Europe), considering how many there are in foreign countries.

    But it would be respectful in that case.

    No, it's a dumb authoritarian idea. Also quite funny that we British people would be so keen to force people to learn English or another language when we are the worst country in Europe for being monolingual.

    I think thats an individual thing, and that if you have no intention to work/live in a different country you shouldn't be forced to learn another language. However I agree that if you were to live in a different country it is polite and respectful to learn the language, hence why I expect immigrants to learn English before getting a job here!

    I'm not going to learn an entire language (or even a large chunk of it) just to be respectful. Basic introductions, and the question "Do you speak English?" are enough
