blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple In few countries does the recent past weigh more heavily than in South Africa. It was not to be expected that when the peaceful handover of power from the apartheid regime to the African National Congress occurred, all would go smoothly. The peaceful handover was made ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple There is another pandemic that, in the long run, may be more harmful to the health of humanity than that of COVID-19.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple A friend of mine defines a celebrity as someone of whom he has never heard. This is almost my definition too. Perhaps it is a sign of my tunnel vision, or rather tunnel attention, that world famous figures are to me often completely unknown. For example, while I had vaguely ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Looking at the Guardian recently, the house journal of the British woke intelligentsia, I noticed a picture of a soccer crowd at the current European championship—a crowd as overwhelmingly male as any meeting of atomic physicists.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Since my adolescence I have loved churchyards and cemeteries. I still find entry to them as irresistibly tempting as to bookshops.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple To a hammer, everything looks like a nail; to a modern ideologist, every difference looks like the result of prejudice.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Haiti is one of those countries that you can leave after a visit, but that never quite leaves you.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple George Orwell, in “Nineteen Eight-Four,” grasped an essential point about totalitarian propaganda, namely that the more outrageously false it was, the better it served its purpose, which was not to inform or persuade, but to humiliate and subdue.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple It was often said that a journalist writing about a foreign country ought to stay either three days or three years: the former for strength of impression, or that latter for depth of knowledge.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple In the unlikely event that I were to become rich, my first act of philanthropy would be to found a National Museum of Kitsch with free entry to the public.
