Peter Hitchens and Daniel Hannan have a public disagreement

I like both these guys. They’re inspirational. Interested to see them in a conflict of ideas. Its the kind of archetypal political disagreement. Hannan thinks its better to be in the tent, while Hitchens prefers to piss on it from the outside. 91 more words

Creating a howling wilderness

I lived in the dying years of the Soviet Union in Moscow. I travelled extensively in the regions run by Communism. I saw it and I know how very, very hostile it was to religion and why it was, and one of the things I want to convey to people is how that hostility is now being re-forged by the new atheists who in many cases have no idea of the forces they are trying to summon off the ground, and very little idea of the dangers of what they are doing. 28 more words

Peter Hitchens: The House I Grew up in

“I know perfectly well that it’s actually quite wrong to try to live in the past or to seek it.

I think a lot of the reason why people do sometimes do it and some little moment of reminiscence will bring on a voyage into the past is because they would like to open a door and find that their parents were alive again. 621 more words
