The least freedom in the Middle East has decreased,

and we all may thank the Secretary of State when the Arab Spring initiated.

“Styles may change, details may come and go, but the broad demands of aesthetic judgement are permanent.”

From "A Hillside Thaw" by Robert Lee Frost:

   ''In the confusion of them all aglitter,
    And birds that joined in the excited fun
    By doubling and redoubling song and twitter,
    I have no doubt I'd end by holding none.''

Published on 19 Jul 2017

Recorded on February 27, 2017

In the latest episode from Uncommon Knowledge, Sir Roger Scruton, a formally trained political philosopher, talks about his life and the events he’s witnessed that led him to conservatism. He first embraced conservatism after witnessing the leftist student protests in France in May 1968. During the ensuing riots in Paris, more than three hundred people  were injured. Scruton walked away from this event with a change in worldview and a strong leaning toward conservatism. Visits to communist- controlled Poland and Czechoslovakia in 1979 cemented his preference for conservatism and his distaste for the fraud of communism and socialism,  initiating a desire to do something about it. From thereon he dedicated himself to helping organize underground seminars for the young people oppressed behind the iron curtain.

GUARD101 posted a sad update about Roger Scruton

Odious media lies got Roger Scruton fired.

Roger Scruton is an academic, a scholar, and an expert on architecture. He was recently hired as an unpaid chair of the Beautiful Building Commission, meaning Scruton effectively had a say in how new properties in the UK are built. He was a valuable contribution and was helping make Britain beautiful again.

But the spiteful, odious media have got him fired – by lying about comments he made.

Lies about his comments surrounding communist China, extremist Islam and George Soros have got one of the UK’s most important thinkers fired. And the left is proud of it!

When critical people start taking down philosophers such as Roger Scruton we are all living in danger similar to NAZI days!
