This one is for  Florestan https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2019/11/why-is-there-more-intellectual-freedom-in-bucharest-than-cambridge/

Interesting. I certainly don’t feel free to speak about many subjects in public nowadays and with the amount of equality, diversity and inclusivity rules at work I hardly talk to anyone. In fact I’m no doubt in violation of the inclusivity regulations by chatting a lot to a couple of team members on Skype but not the others :(.

I told you that long time ago.
Indeed.

Few recognise we are again living in an age of puritanism. Meanwhile we dance on the deck of the Titanic (excuse the mixed metaphors) ignoring all the elephants in the room whilst the only planet we have is being destroyed. We are a very, very peculiar species.

I do feel bad about being part of the human race and hope some form of life survives in the long run :(.

Well if it’s nuclear war takes us out the experts tell us the most likely survivors will be cockroaches. Somehow strikes me as poetic justice.

Institutionalizing child abuse.

Stuff like this has been going on for years. Kids prosecuted as child pornographers for sexting for example.
