Wow - 16 straight 5 star reviews - Never seen that before ! (But I do like Tucker Carlson and watch a lot of his stuff on Fox)
Perhaps we can come back to that if we do that “University” thread ?
My Grandad was a dyed in the wool Labour voter - had Kier Hardy’s book “From Serfdom to Socialism” - Used sing his version of the red flag quite tunefully addressing the hypocrisy of the underdog ;
"The working class can kiss my A##
I’ve Got the forman’s job at last"
Also had a copy of the Koran and was very knowledgeable on Dickens and Shakespeare, Geography, History etc - but no formal “Education” as such
Reminds me of a joke from the 60’s or early 70’s (Fred Wedlock I think)
"How do you rate Dickens then ?
Don’t know I’ve never been to one ! "
Well Murray’s new book cannot be considered as a right wing diatribe ! - Well only if you’re so “Woke” you’ll never sleep again
I’d like to put up a point or two from each chapter - to give a “taste” of it - but I know I can’t even give a flavour of the depth of rational thought and logical deduction he brings to the subjects
Anyhow lets give it a go ;
He looks at Gay, Race, Feminism and Trans and at east for the first three he compares them mto addressing genuine issues which needed addressing and that for a long while, progress was made - like a train making a journey - then just as they were slowing down and pulling into the destination station, it was as though something went wrong with the controls and they accellerated madly through the station and down the track until they flew off the rails and crashed into the crowd creating all sorts of destruction.
I guess he does Gay first as it is his only claim to the virtue of victimhood and e treats it in a totally thorough, impartial and unbiased way as far as I can tell.
He says of LGBTQxxxxxx That it is Not really an identity group at all - because L’s and G’s have little in common and don’t really communicate or frequent the same spaces, but they both are suspicious of the B’s - All three of them are deeply distrustful of the T’s and the Q’s are really a fringe and difficult to define although he has a creditable stab at it ! I don’t remember whether he looks at any of the “Other Letters” which sem to get added every day or not.
He also says that many heterosexual men are “nervous” of Homosexual men and seem to regard them as “the men who know too much” !
It really IS a great read and just the starting point in a journey which every single person really needs to take in the current Ideological turmoil we are going through!
