Rhetoric

Answering the case against Israel point-by-point

Free speech is not our cause, and it gets us nowhere anyway

It is people who trivialise them who are not taking politics seriously

We must resist the idea that disagreement with modish beliefs is reducible to ill-feeling

We must be very careful with redefinitions of commonly understood words

The right cannot always be fighting a rearguard action in the culture wars

Cultural and political discourse can follow the reductive yet seductive logic of pornography

We are in danger of making unhinged generalisations about unhinged generalisers

If it is a threat then it has to be defined

Progressive rhetoric has a projection problem
