blog preview image Being killed by a brutal policeman does not change a man’s life from bad to good. by Theodore Dalrymple When I first saw the mural of George Floyd with large angel wings, I assumed that it was a satire on his sanctification – effective, perhaps, but not in the best of taste.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple What do people mean when they demand justice for George Floyd? I shall return in a moment to this question.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Too great attention to the use of language is a distraction from the essential and easily becomes mere pedantry; but to pay too little is to risk being deceived or manipulated by those who use language wrongly. Words, Aristotle said, should not bear more precision than possible; ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple The Covid-19 epidemic has cruelly exposed the intellectual, moral and financial frivolity of British public administration. Before the epidemic started its deadly campaign against the old, the fat, the hypertensive, the diabetic, the men, the poor, and the black, certain ...Read More...

blog preview image On bringing children to political protests by Theodore Dalrymple “Give me a child until he is seven,” said St. Ignatius Loyola, at least allegedly, “and I will show you the man.” Whether or not St. Ignatius actually said this, I could not but help think of these words when I read a short ...Read More...
