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.”

Gone fishing (sort of)

I can’t imagine why anyone would sit at the water waiting for a fish to bite into a fish hook and then reeling in that fish and taking out the hook and then having to slaughter it and clean it before eating it. I prefer my fish with wasabi at the Japanese Restaurant so I do not have to confront the horrors of eating dead animals. So I won’t be off fishing.

I will, however, be on holiday, so I will probably not be updating the blog or if I do, won’t do so regularly for the next while. For all readers of this Blog, enjoy your holidays and whatever you do, give somebody you love a big hug.
