The Politics of Loveliness

With less than a month to go before the British public decide who they want to lead the country. New election promises have become a staple of our daily news intake. In past elections issues of ‘competence’ and ‘reliability’ dominated the headlines. Yet this time round there seems to be a competition to decide who is…

Reaching 20,000

Given the upcoming snap election I thought it might be appropriate to reflect on the health of the Libertarian movement in the UK. I am of the opinion that Libertarianism, in the long run, stands a good chance of being a dominant system of ethics and political operations if it exerts cultural pressure as opposed…

About That German Open Border Policy

I was born and raised in Germany, and I lived there for the first 28 years of my life. That is not to say that I feel particularly German. I have always been an individualist. What ties me to Germany is more family and friends rather than a patriotic feeling about this artificial political construct.…

Whether and How to Stand

I have been giving considerable thought to whether and how to stand and be effective at standing in Beckenham or elsewhere for a small party for this snap election. Since you are probably interested, I have decided that I am unable to bring forward the resources myself to do so. I do have a fairly clear…

Rory’s first stint in organised politics was with the United Nations Association as a director on campus at York university. He is, therefore, not automatically opposed to supranational organisations. He has, however, been a director of Brexit advocacy group Better Off Out since before the word Brexit was coined. At York Rory got a first…

Why Islam Haters are a Problem

So this time, London is the European city in the news with a terrorist attack. Once again, a lone nutter, acting on his own by using very simple means, has caused a nasty blood bath. From what we know so far, the attacker claims to have acted in the name of Islam. ISIS, in their…

The structure of the talk was a tripartite one, as follows: • Professor Bernstein identified the philosophic essence of religion • He then explained the fundamental requirements of human life • He demonstrated, point-for-point, how these clash. Part 1: The hazards of organised religion The idea was presented that a proper ethics, required for the…

The US President is not a CEO

It has been a few weeks since Donald Trump moved into the White House. So far, his administration appears to be a little bit chaotic, to say the least. During his campaign he ran on a populist platform. That means he did not make a lot of concrete policy promises. Instead, he suggested that he…
