Response to Children's centres

It's a very long time since I read 1984, Brave New World and Fahrenheit 451, so my recollection of them is hazy and there's a good chance that my view of them has merged into one. It was so long ago that I was young and impressionable and possibly even idealistic, so perhaps their effect on me was greater than it need have been. But the picture I carry with me, and fear, is of a dark, unsatisfactory world of oppression and sterility created by state interference in the lives of its citizens.…

socially inadequate, pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed, young men sitting in their mother's basements and ranting

Andrew Marr recently characterised bloggers as all those things listed in the title.

Obviously he is wrong - all generalisations must be to some extent. I, for example, am neither single nor young, rather, I'm a grumpy old man.

I am writing this blog, and I reply to online discussion forums, at least in part, because I like the thought that my writing is being published, its good for my ego, even though no-one may ever read it. Here on my blog I can combine authorship with editorial… Continue
