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.”

Weird book title awards

The Bookseller website reports that If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs was crowned the winner of the Diagram Prize for Oddest Title of the Year, after a record-breaking 8,500 votes (33%) online…..The runner-up is I Was Tortured By the Pygmy Love Queen (20%) and in 3rd place is Cheese Problems Solved (19%).

I can think of a few weird book titles for the interesting times we are living in here in South Africa as well. No lawyers for rape accused by Jacob Zuma, for example. Or Free and Fair elections a British plot by Robert Mugabe. Or what about How I became the lovable person I am by Tony Leon….
