blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Just as one begins to imagine that the liberal pseudo-conscience can go no further in foolishness, it comes up with new schemes to make the world a little worse.

blog preview image The country’s Covid-19 lockdown has hit the world’s oldest profession hard. by Theodore Dalrymple No economic activity in France has been worse hit by the Covid-19 epidemic and its subsequent lockdown than prostitution—or what we have come delicately to call “sex work.” Social distancing has ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Anyone who has been to church in France will have noticed that the direction of the tide of evangelism has reversed.

blog preview image Which, if any, expert estimates should we take seriously? by Theodore Dalrymple I never listen to the radio, but back in 2008 I was in a taxi when I could hardly avoid doing so.
