A very naughty boy

The latest kinder, gentler politics kerfuffle is footage of a feckless young character called Sion Rickard, a classic example of what you get when you abandon discipline and rigour in education, suggesting that Toryism can be educated out. Don’t you just love it when the young and unemployable explain to …

#Brexit: A Chance for Conservatism’s Intellectual Revival

As it stands, the Conservative Party is divided on most things: laterally, there is a distinction between the modernisers and traditionalists, who – contrary to popular belief – do not fall neatly into the “liberal” and “illiberal” groups; and vertically, there is a distinction between the grassroots and the leadership. …

Why Socialism Occupies the Moral Low Ground

Socialism occupies the moral low ground in every way. They expropriate what successful people have worked for. Socialism is based on all people being equally poor, with everything possible being owned by the state. The only way to achieve this is to expropriate (steal) from rich people. You can see …

Wealth creation is not a zero-sum game

A “zero-sum game” means that everyone’s gains are accounted for by someone else’s loss. Apparently, this is what socialists believe: “Capitalists cannot keep making money forever, because eventually they will have taken all the value from the world and would have to start taking money from the poor.” – Socialism 101 …

Corporatism: A Daring Dream, Part I

Corporatism is a word with many meanings, and no one seems to know what precisely any of them are. Corporatism is a diverse set of theories, but it should be thought of in purely economic terms. When we think of ‘corporatism’ today, I am sure that most people would think …

Reflections of a former SJW

I used to be a Social Justice Warrior. To paraphrase Peter Hitchens, in some ways I’m rather glad for it, because having already caught the disease, I’m now immune to it. People like me are in a rather unique position, because we know exactly what it’s like to think certain …

Turning Back the Socialist Ratchet

In the 1980s, the post-war period from 1945 to 1979 came to be described in right-wing circles as a “socialist ratchet” – even though the Conservatives were in government for most of this period, the attitude of “managed decline” and that socialism had become a prevailing consensus made it difficult …

No-one expects the Liberal Inquisition

There must be something in human nature that means we always need to take a good thing too far. In this way far from turning it into a very good thing we instead turn it into a very bad thing. The fault, for instance, with Christianity is not what Jesus …

The Marxist Labour danger is real

I really do urge you all to understand the very clear and present existential danger this Marxist Labour Party represents for the economic future of this country. It is a requirement of a government to provide physical security for the inhabitants of a nation by way of armed forces, security …

Jeremy Corbyn is a Serial Liar

I have said many times that socialists always lie, because if they told the truth nobody would vote for them. This applies just as much to Jeremy Corbyn as it did to Tony Blair. Unfortunately many people are too dim, too naive or too brainwashed to see through this, especially …

The Left is winning

Until recently I thought that the Right had won the economic battle decisively, but were gradually losing the cultural war. Now I am not so optimistic. Conservative economics suffered a set-back at the last election and now Conservatives are actually helping the Left to still more decisively destroy Conservative values. …

Equality or freedom

What is it that distinguishes people on the Left and people on the Right? We now have two party politics again. But what is the choice between these two parties fundamentally about? The answer can be summarised in the following way. Conservatism is about what is. Liberalism/Socialism is about what …

Socialism is theft

In order to understand a thing you have to strip it back to its essence. The fault of too much political thinking has been that it is too abstract. It tries to impose a theoretical system on human nature rather than accept human nature as the basic building block. This …
