Prince Charles: West Should Emulate Indian Slums


What would England look like if Prince Charles were to become king, and it were to pursue his left-wing vision of multiculti envirosustainability? Like one of the miserable slums that fester in India:

Britain’s Prince Charles has cited the Mumbai shantytown setting for the film “Slumdog Millionaire” as a role model for sustainable living in Western cities, a report said Saturday.

The 61-year-old heir to the British throne writes in a new book being published next week that the Dharavi slum is better and more instinctively organised than many Western towns, London’s Daily Telegraph said.

In the book, called Harmony, Prince Charles contrasts the “fragmented, deconstructed” housing estates of Western nations with the “order and harmony” of the dusty potters’ colony featured in the Oscar-winning movie.

“We have a great deal to learn about how complex systems can self-organise to create a harmonious whole,” he said.

“The real lesson I took from Dharavi was about the vast asset we can call ‘community capital.'”

Prince Charles says that, despite the complete absence of government support, Dharavi’s residents recycle their waste and build their own homes out of whatever materials come to hand.

Such as cow dung, garbage, et cetera. But I’m guessing Prince Chucklehead will stay on in his palace.

Apparently Chuckles wants Britons to live in dung huts for Gaia.
