Today’s Quote: Bernard Shaw on Money

“That is the use of money: it enables us to get what we want instead of what other people think we want.”

George Bernard Shaw

From this excellent Canadian defence of property rights by John Robson. He notes the irony of Shaw the socialist being the source of this quote. Read the whole thing. A great illustration of common Anglosphere values.

My book can also be bought with money.

Today’s Quote: Orwell on Patriotism

“Patriotism has nothing to do with conservatism. It is devotion to something that is changing but is felt to be mystically the same … I would sooner have had that kind of upbringing than be like the left-wing intellectuals who are so ‘enlightened’ that they cannot understand the most ordinary emotions.”
George Orwell, ‘My Country Left or Right’

If you’re interested in the power of the most ordinary emotions, you might like my book.

I’m in Le Monde…

…talking about the Anglosphere post-Brexit. I’d forgotten about this interview. Nice to feature so prominently, though I look forward to discovering what I said.

The cover of my book seems to feature too. You might like it — it’s in English.

Word of the day: Pareidolia

Pareidolia

A psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus (an image or a sound) by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists.

Successful politicians are good at exploiting pareidolia to let voters hear what they want in their  words. If that makes sense to you, you may find what you are looking for in my book.
