One more time - yes, Martin Heidegger was a real Nazi

Whatever.

According to Adam Kirsch, there is no getting around the fact that Martin Heidegger, anti-Enlightenment philosopher and patron saint of the 1960s German New Left/Greens/counter-culture, was a real Nazi: http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-arts-and-culture/books/214226/heidegger-was-really-a-real-nazi

Obama the Great Divider

Barack Obama's identitarian ideology has far less to do with Martin Luther King than Malcolm X

Outback and Old Country - Salisbury Review, Autumn 2016

Frances Newman's 1953 Farewell

Here is my latest piece for the Salisbury Review, "Outback and Old Country":

Frances Forbes (nee Newman), now 84-years-old, is typical of a number of Aussie old timers. She is Australian-born and raised, and has lived here for almost the entirety of her life; and yet her destiny has been inextricably linked with Britain. While others, at her age, might describe themselves as, for instance, Greek-Australian or Italian-Australian, few – least of all Frances – would identify themselves as British-Australian. That is, perhaps, because being “Australian” is a concept so deeply associated with British notions that “British-Australian” remains something of a redundancy.
