Tech Giants Are Giving China a Vital Edge In Espionage

 ‘Passionate’ Belief in Freedom of Speech and Multiplying Orthodoxies

There is no midnight knock on the door, at least not yet, to ensure conformity, but those who question these little orthodoxies (whose content, incidentally, changes all the time, but also extends in scope, like multiplying starfish crawling over a coral reef) are subject to such punishments as ostracism or black-listing.

Professor Sivertsen won the Blaug Prize for his article, “On the Practical Impossibility of Being Both Well-Informed and Impartial.” Here’s the abstract of the article:

Adam Smith argued that the ideal moral judge is both well-informed and impartial. As non-ideal moral agents, we tend only to be truly well-informed about those with whom we frequently interact. These are also those with whom we tend to have the closest affective bonds. Hence, those who are well-informed, like our friends, tend to make for partial judges, while those who are impartial, like strangers, tend to make for ill-informed ones. Combining these two traits in one person seems far from straightforward. Still, if becoming well-informed is, as Smith also claims, a matter of imaginative perspective-taking with the “person principally concerned” (TMS, I.i.1.4, 13), it might be possible to become well-informed without the emotional entanglement that comes from any actual proximity to those we judge. Against this intuition, I use Construal Level Theory to show that the tension between being well-informed and impartial is likely to persist even if we take any actual proximity out of the equation. I end by discussing some implications of this, and suggest that we should consider revising the ideal to accommodate them.

Simon Schama: Why John le Carré Is a Writer of Substance

Simon SchamaWhat Makes John le Carré a Writer of Substance ‘Someone, sometime, had to translate Dean Acheson’s famous 1962 characterisation of a Britain that had “lost an empire but has not yet found a role” into literature. But until le Carré came along, no writer had nailed the toxic combination of bad faith and blundering, the confusion of tactical cynicism with strategic wisdom, with such lethal accuracy.... His writing did... have some precedents.... He belonged to the same “lower-upper-middle-class” as George Orwell.... Like Orwell... le Carré had a pitch-perfect ear for the disingenuous hypocrisies sustaining those who mistook “Getting Away with It” for national purpose. Le Carré’s other literary pedigree... came from Anthony Trollope: the shrewd sense that institutions had collective personalities and psychologies, as if they were extended families. As such, they were the theatre of deadly, high-stakes dramas of loyalty and betrayal…. The scene at the beginning of An Honourable Schoolboy in the Hong Kong Foreign Correspondents Club, where “a score of journalists, mainly from former British colonies . . . fooled and drank in a mood of violent idleness, a chorus without a hero” is one of the great set pieces of le Carré writing. At its centre is one of his Dickens-Modern creations: the ancient Aussie, “old Craw” based on someone le Carré knew from that field trip to south Asia, and “who had shaken more sand out of his shorts than most of them would walk over

History from Below 🛎

 Three men die in a car accident on Christmas Eve. 

They all find themselves at the Pearly Gates waiting to enter Heaven. 

To enter Heaven, they must present something related to or associated with Christmas to Saint Peter or they will be rejected..

The first man searches his pocket, and finds some mistletoe, so he is allowed in. 

The second man presents a nutcracker, so he is also allowed in. 

The third man pulls out a pair of woman’s panties. 

Confused at this last gesture, St Peter asks, “How does this represent Christmas?” 

The man answers, “They’re Carol’s.”


Few lines by Adorno serve as a better summation of his concept of fascist movements than his 1967 claim that they are “the wounds, the scars of a democracy that, to this day, has not yet lived up to its own concept.”

Nature Nature’s 10: ten people who helped shape science in 2020 – “A COVID vaccine developer, an Arctic voyager and a prime minister are some of the people behind the year’s big research stories…The Nature’s 10 list explores key developments in science this year and some of the people who played important parts in these milestones. Along with their colleagues, these individuals helped to make amazing discoveries and brought attention to crucial issues. Nature’s 10 is not an award or a ranking. The selection is compiled by Nature’s editors to highlight key events in science through the compelling stories of those involved…”

Regrets About The Life You’ve Lived?

“The thought that I might have become someone else is so bland that dwelling on it sometimes seems fatuous,” the literary scholar Andrew H. Miller writes, in “On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives” (Harvard). Still, phrased the right way, the thought has an insistent, uncanny magnetism. – The New Yorker

To say that John le Carré invented the modern spy novel doesn’t do justice to his achievement. His fictional world blurred into Reality  

E.P. Thompson’s rise was a paradoxical intellectual event: “history from below” promised social uplift, yet ignored stark colonial realities    Folkloric Foundations

The Complications Of What Tolerance And Respect Mean

“Today many regard tolerance not as the willingness to allow views that some may find offensive but the restraining of unacceptable views so as to protect people from being outraged. Regarding tolerance as the demand of those who might be offended, rather than as a permission for those who might offend is to turn the idea on its head.” – The Guardian

 What the Brexit trade deal does

 Megan McArdle on dangerous group think in the public health establishment: “…the discussion of whether to prioritize essential workers was anything but robust. The committee left only 10 minutes for it, during which not one of those 14 intelligent and dedicated health professionals suggested adopting the plan that kills the fewest people. Nor did anyone run out of time to make that point. Ten minutes was actually a little too much for what turned out to be a pro forma opportunity to get on the record endorsing the plan, and particularly its emphasis on racial and economic equity in health care.”

Serving out of love …


Like that of a domestic lamp, which spreads modest and quiet light—provident, intimate, inviting us to a thoughtful and laborious vigil beyond the darkness of the night, comforting us amid the tedium of silence and the fear of solitude, overcoming the weight of tiredness and of sleep—and which seems to speak with a flat and sure voice of the dawn that will come: thus the light of the pious figure of Saint Joseph, it seems to Us, spreads its beneficial rays in the house of God which is the Church. He fills her with the most human and ineffable memories of the Word, made man for us and like us, entering upon the stage of this world and living under the protection, guidance, and authority of the poor craftsman of Nazareth; he illuminates her with his incomparable example as a saint fortunate among so many for having lived a common life with Jesus and Mary—a life of service to Christ, a service born of love.

This is the secret of Saint Joseph’s greatness, which is in keeping with his humility: having made his life one of service, a life of sacrifice to the mystery of the Incarnation and to the redemptive mission which is joined to it; having used the legal authority, which belonged to him over the Holy Family, to make a total gift of himself, of his life, of his work; having converted his human vocation to domestic love into a superhuman oblation of himself, of his heart, and of his every capacity, he placed himself at the service of the Messiah who grew up in his very home, his nominal son, the son of David, the son of Mary, and the Son of God. If ever the words of that evangelical motto—“to serve for love”—which gave glory to Mary, the prophetess of the Magnificat, and to Saint John the Baptist, the Forerunner, were suited to one saint, it must be the very Joseph, who appears before us clothed by it, with the unmistakable profile that defines him and the splendor that glorifies him. Serving Christ was his life; serving Him in the deepest humility; with the most complete dedication; with love, and for love.

From a homily delivered by Saint Paul VI on the Feast of Saint Joseph (March 19, 1966)

Razor 🪒 of vino "Always a big, lusty wine with overtones of chocolate and spice, the 2017 Shiraz fits that stylistic mold to a T. Aromas of dark chocolate, cinnamon, plums and raspberries appear on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is plush and ripe, with just enough tannin to hold things together before easing into a soft, cocoa-powder finish. There's a touch of warmth here, so catch it while it's young. Drink Date 2020 - 2022. 90/100."

2018 Occam's Razor Shiraz

'Emily’s own label, named after 14th century theologian and philosopher William of Ockham’s views of “less is more” - applicable in wine-making as minimal intervention. A fabulous wine grown on granite based soil, to compare with the basalt derived Jasper Hill wines. Exhibits savoury up-front fruitiness, elegant raspberry, cola and dark chocolate characters. Delicious now and cellarable. Again, the 15.5% alc/vol doesn’t show.' Ron Laughton + Emily McNally
