Quote of the day—George MacDonald Fraser

When my views were first published in book form in 2002, I was not surprised that almost all the reviewers were unfavourable. I had expected that my old-fashioned views would get a fairly hostile reception, but the bitterness did astonish me.

I had not realised how offensive the plain truth can be to the politically correct, how enraged they can be by its mere expression, and how deeply they detest the values and standards respected 50 years ago and which dinosaurs like me still believe in, God help us.

  1. I’m glad that Mr. Frazer is beginning to understand what we’re up against. That eases my disappointment, a little bit, in his not having predicted it in 2002. We had just gone through the Bush/Gore election contest for one thing, and were full-on into the Bush Derangement Syndrome. That alone should have been enough of a clue.

    We’ve been seeing this sort of thing for decades now. This is not and never has been a polite disagreement between well-intentioned ideologies. Examples abound, but I remember Charles Manson saying, “Kill all rich people and burn their houses and cars” back in the 1970s. Manson’s ideas were not his own– they didn’t just spring spontaneously from his addled brain. He was just one of the relatively few at that time who embraced them wholeheartedly.
