blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Bread line in the Soviet Union We live in an age of social engineering, in which unprecedentedly large numbers of people know, or think that they know, what is best for society.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple More than forty years ago, when I was briefly in South Africa and apartheid was at its apogee, the police brought a woman to the clinic in which I was working. She had been found wandering naked in the streets of the town and was clearly not in her right mind. The police ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple The history of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine is a textbook example of political manipulation and its consequences that may one day fascinate political scientists. When it became clear that Britain was immunizing its population much faster than the rest of Europe, the ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple When, as a callow and unobservant young man, I visited Iran just over half a century ago, I was much impressed by the White Revolution. There were serious traffic jams in Teheran, evidence – I thought – of both modernity and mass prosperity. The city, at least in its northern ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple The mills of political correctness grind exceeding fine, though unlike those of God or justice, they also grind rather fast. Nothing is too small or insignificant for them, nothing can hide from them for long. Recently I noticed an article in the online version of the ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple When it came to Hitler, Karl Kraus, the Viennese satirist, said that he couldn’t think of anything to say. This sounds odd, first because Hitler was, and will remain, an inexhaustible subject for biographical and psychological speculation, probably beating Napoleon or ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Franz Kafka 1906 You do not defend free speech by demanding it for yourself but by demanding it for others, especially when you reprehend the use to which they put it or what they say. Freedom to agree with yourself is no freedom at all and inevitably ends in tyranny. But ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Five years ago in January, a pop singer called David Bowie died. From the scale of the press coverage of his demise, you might have thought that someone of world-historical importance had passed away; and of course, most of the coverage was laudatory. The principle that ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple The publisher Jonathan Cape used to say that there were only two things you needed to know about publishing in Britain. The first was that books about South America never made a profit; the second was that books about Nelson never made a loss. No doubt there are other ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple A pure bureaucracy, which is what the British criminal justice system has become in all but name, will do almost anything rather than solve the problem with which it is presented. It will invent any number of complex procedures ostensibly meant to solve a problem, but really ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Donald Trump’s last State of the Union address to congress struck me at once as boastful, vainglorious and hubristic. It invited nemesis, which was swifter in coming than expected. To listen to him, you would have thought that everyone was going to live happily ever after ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Paris, 1865 It is a matter of speculation how far a person’s political opinions are determined by his temperament, his circumstances and his ratiocination, but it is certainly true that many extremists make their choice young, burn their boats and then cannot return, at ...Read More...

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Multiculturalism is the demand that we understand, sympathise with, and accommodate to people of other cultures; but it is also, in logic, the reciprocal demand that they do the same with regard to us.

blog preview image by Theodore Dalrymple Not long ago, I went to a large exhibition in France of portraits by Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun. I was charmed by the first few that I saw, but by the end of the exhibition I experienced a sensation not unlike that of having eaten too many chocolate truffles very quickly.
