Dalrymple Watch

Recent words from my favorite essayist, Theodore Dalrymple:From The End of Virtuous Albion:
Not long ago, I shared a public platform with Germaine Greer in which she stated that to be good — to lead a virtuous life — entailed faithfulness or truth to one's inclinations. It is scarcely any wonder that young Britons can no longer see what is wrong with vomiting drunkenly in the street, or screaming with either pleasure or hostility. If your inclination is to be a barbarian — well, be true to yourself, be a barbarian.
