The Resistance

Just A Simple Twist Of Fate

Welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, well. To what do I owe the extreme pleasure of this surprising news, as young Alex in Anthony Burgess' Clockwork Orange might have put it. orecasts of climate change are about to go seriously out of kilter.

The Myth Of Islamic Golden Ages

slamic civilization, the various golden ages of Islamic civilization always occur early in the first few centuries in which a new territory is occupied.

Isn't this what the left in this country have been trying to achieve for a couple of generations now, creating moral dilemmas where none should exist. The very fact that this young man was beseiged by doubts about the morality of ratting out "people of color" despite what he was seeing on those tapes, says something very sad and highly disturbing about how powerful a whip the...
