Defending the Enlightenment

As a footnote to the Bernard Henry Levi debate, he's signed, with Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Ramadan-busting Caroline Fourest, Maryam Namazie, our Salman Rushdie and others, a manifesto of resistance to totalitarianism. Read it.

If you like that, you might also want to read Peter Tatchell's open letter to Clare Short. And if you don't like Clare Short, well, nor does Scribbles.

Tatchell's piece is a bit of tongue in cheek, you know. Starting with "If this is true, I am very surprised.".

But he is right, of course.
