The perils of climate denial

In my latest National Post column I warn of a massive breach of trust if reputable opinion doesn’t stop shaming and shouting down people pointing to serious defects in climate change alarmist orthodoxy.

Early morning wall of ice delivered by benevolent state

In my latest National Post column I point out that only the government would put a big wall of wet snow and ice across your driveway to solve its snow-on-a-public-street problem and expect you to be grateful.

P.S. A correspondent alerts me that the proper name for such a thing is a “windrow”. Which beats a lot of things you might call it when you get up in the morning in a hurry to get to work or school and find it there sneering at you.

Print gremlins

If you’re wondering, yes, the digital elves did something weird to my National Post column today, inserting three paragraphs of a news sidebar as though they were part of my copy (grafs 4-6, from “The Liberal government plans to request…” down to “Read more…”). The online version is correct.

Would the real Bill Morneau please start talking… or stop

In my latest National Post column I wonder how a person as apparently sensible as our federal Finance Minister could have started talking such nonsense so quickly after becoming a politician.

The tyranny of postmodern choice

In my latest National Post column I suggest that punk rockers and other postmoderns hate and love big government because we’ve done the Nietzche transvaluation thing. Choice doesn’t mean deciding between existing alternatives including right and wrong anymore. Now it means dictating what alternatives should exist and deciding for ourselves what shall be right. Conformity can be rebellion, awful art can be great, big can be small, down can be up, anything we like. Or so we like to think.

With government in charge…

In my latest National Post column I satirize people’s ongoing faith in government’s compassionate efficiency despite all their experience with its actual performance.
