Dalrymple on the Riots

A few days ago I mentioned Theodore Dalrymple in the context of the London riots and wondered what he would have to say about it on one of his venues, City Journal. Well, here are two answers: August 10 and and August 15.

  1. I read both articles. Thank you for referring me to them.

    The rioters may be the playing out their roles in the End-of-Empire scenario. In their violence, they certainly come close to the British applying their scorched earth policy to the lands of the Boers (and others).

    Violence begets violence: sometimes the mills of the gods grind fast; sometimes they grind slowly... but they grind exceedingly fine.
