Interesting

From Neil Harding:

Thomas Paine, the influential English-American writer who lived in Lewes, is being remembered at the Tom Paine Project’s 2006 Festival. The Thebes Gallery in Lewes is exhibiting a collection of politically-themed 18th century caricatures (4-14 July), and a series of lunchtime lectures are being held at The Westgate Meeting (formerly the Westgate Chapel) in the High Street. Admission is free, and the meetings run from 12:20 to 2pm:

July 1: Why We Need A Bit More Equality And A Bit Less Liberty – (Guess Who!), Guardian columnist.

Nice to see it spelled out quite so clearly, eh?

Do these eglitarians realise just how insane they sound?

Proposition: you can increase liberty without necessarily reducing equality. Equality might either increase or decrease: che sera, sera. But you can't increase equality without decreasing liberty, at least for any of the methods of increasing equality that are routinely recommended.
