On the Arab Winter
"It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters." -Edmund Burke
Chairing the MP by Hogarth
You understand that Burke's maxim applies wherever men and women of intemperate minds are found. We wonder what causes the intemperance, the thin skins, the inability to tolerate criticism, or to rise above it and dismiss it as unfounded.
Is this upbringing, culture aka religion, a refusal to accept responsibility, a desire to be victimised, or the result of non-free economies, run by unjust kleptocrats, keeping millions of men under-or-unemployed, thereby turning them into dry tinder, ready to burn with rage?
