Let the Book-Burning Commence

The New Cultural Revolution Is Just More of the Same Destruction. Spot the Difference. L-R: Communists in Spain, Red Guards in the Cultural Revolution; Marxist vigilantes today. A Devil's Curmudgeon. George Orwell well understood the totalitarian mindset. He didn’t live to see Communist China, but he would have recognised it instantly. Orwell would also have …

Time to Bulldoze the Universities

And there was much rejoicing amongst the children. A bold call? Certainly. Extreme? Without a doubt. Am I serious? Not entirely, but…things are fast reaching a pass where the wholesale dismantling of the existing university sector and rebuilding from scratch may be the only recourse. When even left-leaning academics like feminist social critic Professor Camille …

Fake News: How We Got Where We Are

First Donald Trump broke the media, then he made them a laughing-stock. Despite their endless self-regard, everyone knows who the real fake news are now. The 2004 comedy Anchorman opens with the observation that “there was a time…when people believed everything they heard on TV”. The joke is grounded in reality: in the early 70s, …

A Tale of Two Dangerous Ideas

Another old one. The Sydney “Festival of Dangerous Ideas” was celebrated as a platform to spout such dangerous, “offensive, obnoxious, fearsome, dangerously stupid” ideas as “Israel is an Apartheid State”, “Genital Cutting is Normal”, or even that “Honour Killings are Justified”. One thing that was immediately obvious was that FODI’s roster was heavily weighted to …

Everything you never wanted to know about Queer Theory, but you should

This is your brain on queer theory. Why should you learn about queer theory? For the same reason people in the 1930s should have been aware of Mein Kampf or Capital (Das Kapital). When you’re standing, dumbstruck, wondering, “How on earth did it come to this?”, it’s important to learn the why and the how. …

Why the left is promoting pedophilia (again)

The left have been vocal in (rightly) condemning clerical abuse, but they have remained shamefully silent about disturbing revelations of pedophilia in their own ranks. Worse, too many on the rainbow left seem determined to normalise pedophilia as "just another sexual orientation". No matter which side of politics you’re on, kiddy-fiddlers should never be welcome.
