Quote of the week

Now you cannot understand anything about fascist doctrine if you do not understand that their central claim was that liberalism is antidemocratic; in other words, the fascists claimed that liberal institutions cannot represent the will of the people. They further claimed that their typical institutions, particularly the party, were more effective means to represent the will of the people. So fascists were “authoritarian democrats.”

Business Day op-ed on defamation

Today’s Business Day carries an interesting opinion piece on defamation and the Ronald Suresh Roberts case. It makes some of the same points made on this Blog last week. So far no one has stepped forward to defend Mr Roberts or to attack the judge. Why not?
