A Little Extra Note

Theodore Dalrymple is a pseudonym.  When he’s at home, he’s Anthony Daniels–yes, yes, like C3PO, it must make him nuts–and sometimes he writes under his real name.

Here he is

at The New Criterion, making uncommon sense about moral relativism. 

And Robert will just have to forgive him for quoting Matthew Arnold.

  1. He does seem to make sense a lot of the time – under either name.

    As for his comments about sex laws – here’s an odd case involving a consensual relationship between a 14 and a 22 year old. I can’t seem to find out who reported the situation; it doesn’t appear to have been the girl after having been dumped. And in spite of the shock and horror expressed by various parties, I don’t know what I’d do if I was responsible for a sexually active 14-year-old who was passionately attached to a local layabout.

  2. Unnecessary. Sadly, skill with prose or poetry is not the exclusive property of the wise and virtuous.
