The Real Meaning of Guy Fawkes Night

Though freedom is not a state of nature but an artefact of civilisation, it did not arise from design. The institutions of freedom, like everything freedom has created, were not established because people foresaw the benefits they would bring. But, once its advantages were recognized, men began to perfect and extend the reign of freedom…

Why The Left are Getting it Wrong on History.

The events that transpired in the wake of the Charlottesville atrocities have sparked a wave of hyperbole across the USA. Public statues have been the focus of this upheaval. Several monuments have been defaced across the United States by radical activists. America and indeed the western world’s relationship with our past in under considerable strain.…

4th July: Freedom Is Worth Fighting For

As the 18th century was drawing to a close it became clear that the values of the radical enlightenment had changed the way people think about the relationship between themselves and their rulers.
