blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple The existence of homelessness in rich cities induces a state of unease, if not of outright guilt, in the well- or adequately-housed—who, after all, are vastly more numerous than the homeless. Surely here, if anywhere, is a problem that the authorities, local and national, ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Horatio Bottomley addressing a World War I recruiting rally in Trafalgar Square, London, September 1915.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Walter Duranty was possibly the worst foreign correspondent in the history of the Western press.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple “Racism is a system—consisting of structures, policies, practices, and norms—that assigns value and determines opportunity based on the way people look or the color of their skin.” So begins, with superb intellectual self-confidence, a page of the website of the Centers ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple When I was a young doctor, getting on for half a century ago, depression was a rare condition, or at least a condition that was rarely diagnosed, which is not quite the same thing.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple It was a common trope of the extreme right in France before the war that no Jew could really understand Racine.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Ours is an age of ideological hatred, stronger than at any time I can remember. In the good old days—or perhaps I should say, in my good old days—the ideological choice was simple: you were either a Communist or an anti-Communist. Nowadays, though, we have feminists, ecologists, ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Whenever I watch animals interact, I think of human analogies. This is not because I believe that the theory of evolution has much, or indeed anything at all, to teach us about the conduct of our lives, but because such analogies rise spontaneously to my mind.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple When a reader first drew my attention to the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas, designed by Frank Gehry and completed in 2010, I felt it necessary before writing about it to ask whether it was real or a photoshopped spoof.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Reading about Britain’s attempt to reach a trade deal with Canada, I was surprised to learn that the two countries exported precisely the same number, or tonnage, of pigs to each other.
