blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden Forgiveness is in the gift of the wronged, but pardon is in the gift of us all.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Professor Kathleen Stock How revealing a little punctuation mark may be! A recent headline in the left-leaning, once liberal newspaper, the Guardian, ran a story with a headline as follows: “University defends ‘academic freedoms’ after calls to sack professor.” The university ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Former Minister of Health Agnès Buzyn The distinction between responsibility and guilt is important, both ethically and jurisprudentially, but it seems that the distinction is becoming ever more muddied as law replaces religion as the arbiter of morality.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Britain this winter might perform an interesting if discomfiting experiment to find out how deep is its people’s practical commitment to the environment. My guess is that it is not terribly deep. There is much talk of a coming energy crisis if the winter is severe. A ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Extravagant, exhibitionist futility often seems nowadays to be the primrose path to artistic fame. For example, the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, one of the city’s great landmarks, has just been draped or wrapped in 25,000 square metres of polypropylene fabric, tied with ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Pope Francis went recently to Hungary for a few hours to preach the eternal sacred truths of political correctness. Of course, these truths may change in time, indeed they are certain to do so, but their sacrosanctity will remain. After all, the sacred must move with the ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple If politicians were held to the same standards of honesty as businessmen, all those in Britain would long ago have been imprisoned for such gross misrepresentation that it amounted to deliberate fraud.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple The Olympic Games are bad enough: you can tell just how bad by the regimes that have considered them important.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple The concept of human rights, once it attaches to material benefits, has a profoundly damaging effect on the human personality.
