Libertarian Toryism (2018), by Sean Gabb

Libertarian Toryism Speech to the Mises UK Conference at the Charing Cross Hotel in London 27th January 2018 Sean Gabb Though ultimately about the future, this will also be a speech that dwells on the past. The first past event that I wish to discuss is what happened in June 2017. When I stood down as Director of the Libertarian Alliance, I was asked if I had taken leave of my senses. I was not visibly broken down by age and ill health. I had evidently not run out of things to say. Why, then, was I steeping aside in favour of a young man who was nearly forty years my junior? The answer to this question it to look about you. I ran the Libertarian Alliance for several years… READ MORE

Peter Tatchell and the Total State (2018), by Sean Gabb

Peter Tatchell and the Total State Sean Gabb 13th January 2018 I have some respect for Peter Tatchell. He campaigned against the anti-homosexual laws before this was a safe thing to do. He has shown courage on other issues. This being said, I am troubled by his latest set of recommendations. Writing on the 8th January 2018 for The Friends of Europe blog, he declares that “equal rights are not enough.” It is not enough for people to be treated equally before the law. It is also necessary for children to be brainwashed into agreeing with him. He says: To combat intolerance and bullying, education against all prejudice – including racism, misogyny, disablism, xenophobia, ageism, homophobia, biphobia and transphobia – should be a stand-alone compulsory subject in every school. Equality… READ MORE

Cultural Marxism: One of Those Legitimising Ideologies that Come and Go (2017), by Sean Gabb

Cultural Marxism: One of Those Legitimising Ideologies that Come and Go Sean Gabb 10th December 2017 Last month, I wrote a defence of Charlie Elphicke, my Member of Parliament. He had been suspended from the Conservative Party while the Police investigated him for an alleged sexual assault. He has still not been arrested or charged. He has still not been told the nature of the complaint against him. It may be that he is about to be unmasked as a serial sex-murderer. More likely, the sinister clowns who direct law enforcement in this country have found nothing that even they regard as an assault worth prosecuting. But, if the former of these possibilities might embarrass me, the general reflections I made on his case stand by themselves. What I wish… READ MORE

The Puritan Hypothesis and Charlie Elphicke (2017), by Sean Gabb

The Puritan Hypothesis and  Charlie Elphicke Sean Gabb 5th November 2017 Charlie Elphicke is the Conservative Member of Parliament for Dover and Deal. This makes him my Member of Parliament. On Friday the 3rd November 2017, he discovered – via the media, he says, not from any official notification – that he was suspended from the Conservative Party, and that the Police had been asked to investigate him. No reason for this was given. However, Mr Elphicke’s name was on a confidential list, compiled by Central Office, and immediately leaked on social media, of politicians said to be unable to keep their hands to themselves. Nothing more has been said about him in the news. Speaking for myself, I know him hardly at all, but find it unlikely that he… READ MORE

To What Extent Did Christianity Bring about the Fall of the Roman Empire? (2017), by Sean Gabb

fbq('track', 'ViewContent'); To What Extent Did Christianity Bring about the Fall of the Roman Empire? Note: One of my duties in the various places where I teach is to show students how to write essays - something most young people are not nowadays taught to do. What I like to do in class is to choose a question at random, discuss possible approaches, and then dictate an answer one paragraph at a time. Some of these answers are very short. Some amount to small dissertations. In this latter case, the students take turns at looking on-line for the information we decide is needed. It they cannot find it, I show them how to change the structure of what has already been written, or to strike out in a new direction.… READ MORE

Michael Gove and Harvey Weinstein: No Laughing Matter at the BBC (2017), by Sean Gabb

Michael Gove and Harvey Weinstein: No Laughing Matter at the BBC Sean Gabb 27th October 2017 Every so often, I promise myself never to go on the broadcast media again. I think this is a promise I should now think of keeping. Earlier today, the 27th October 2017, the Conservative politician Michael Gove compared being interviewed by John Humphreys to being taken into Harvey Weinstein’s bedroom. Everyone laughed until some radio presenter called Shelagh Fogarty set off a virtue spiral with claims that the joke “trivialised” victims of sexual assault. The ritual condemnations rolled in at once, and Mr Gove apologised. Probably because no one else was willing, I was begged to go on BBC Radio 5 this evening and discuss the matter with Miss Fogarty on the Stephen Nolan… READ MORE
