In the News

If you've never quite grasped what "irony" means then the following must take the biscuit; but be sure to lock down your irony meter first:

I think the happy looking chappy on the right, yes the right, well knows that he can undercut the rather expensive looking business man on the left. 

In the 1980s the (pseudo) Marxists had to go back to the drawing board.  Now it's the turn of the (pseudo) libertarians to do the same.  Of course, ideologues on both sides will claim that neither of the above is a true representative of the ideal pinnacle of their respective philosophies. But then that sort of claim is only human: Having moved among and studied Christians of many flavours for years I can say that a very similar pretentious idealism can be found especially among those Christians of a partisan temperament and sectarian world-view: Each sectarian will claim that no one else does justice to the real deal. For these idealists a new dawn is always just over the horizon and that they themselves are the best representatives of that new dawn !
