~ SKIP THE UTOPIA! — “One of Burke’s insights in Reflections is that the revolution was unnecessary. The situation in France was bad in the 1780s, but it was not so bad as to require the expedients called for by the revolutionaries. Louis XVI was amenable to reform and figures such as Turgot and Necker laid out plans and sparked debate. There were mechanisms at hand that made peaceful change possible, why go to extremes? America in the 1960s was riven by many injustices, yet it was also the freest and richest nation on earth, surely it can’t have been that bad to require its middle class sons and daughters to engage in violence or anarchic forms of paganism – hippiedom.

The students are also subject to exercises to increase awareness and acceptance of homosexual tendencies in themselves and in their peers, and to keep in mind that failure to accept homosexual lifestyles is a type of “violence” against these individuals” ….

  1. Hello I’m a Cuban-American blogger that is a fan of Mark Steyn and very sympathetic to him and his defense in this show trial. That said I respectfully request that you reconsider using the graphic that shows Mr. Steyn with a beret reminiscent of Che Guevara. As staunch anti-communists my fellow Cuban-American bloggers and I spend a good deal of time trying to educate people about the real Che Guevara who was a murdering stalinist. Most of the time it’s liberals and progressives that use the Guevara archetype and it’s usually because of their ignorance of who the real man was. I am sure that no offense was intended and you are certainly within your right to display whatever graphic you want (this is a site dedicated to free speech after all) but Guevara was an enemy of free speech and seems to be the exact type of person we’re fighting against.

    Managing Editor,

    Saith Binks:

    It’s a borrowed image from the t-shirts that Mark himself sells; I think it’s not an homage to the monster Guevara, but a mocking of the mindless popularity of the Che symbolism: Steyn is the True hero & rebel. I understand how it could be offensive to those for who m Che was a persecutor, and not a t-shirt icon. You can check with Steyn on the matter:
