Coronation, moral corruption and cultural chaos
My latest conversation with John Anderson
I recently recorded a conversation with John Anderson, the former Leader of Australia’s National Party and Deputy Prime Minister. Since stepping down from involvement in Australian politics in 2005 he has conducted many such conversations, as you can see from his website here.
This was the third time I have sat down with him for such a discussion, and it was once again a pleasure to speak with someone who is so decent, grounded and thoughtful. Our conversation was also rather long! We discussed the coronation of King Charles III and the future of the British monarchy, the cultural problems in the UK, leadership, rationality and the relationship of the west with the State of Israel.

My next speaking engagement will be in Los Angeles on Shabbat June 10, when I will be the guest speaker at the YINBH Beverly Hills Synagogue (Young Israel of North Beverly Hills). For details, please contact: email@example.com .
My most recent exclusive post for my premium subscribers argues that the bullying of those who dissent from transgender dogma is out of control. This is how the piece begins:
News from Salem
Two stories from Britain over the last day or so provide more graphic evidence than ever of the terrifying drift into ideological witch-hunting by the nation that once gave political liberty and liberal tolerance to the world. A Christian mathematics teacher, Joshua Sutcliffe, has been banned indefinitely from the teaching profession for calling girls girls, and for refusing to use the preferred pronoun of a transgender pupil who identified as a boy but to whom he referred as “she” and “her”.
And you can read my most recent post that’s available to everyone, where you can watch my presentation at the launch of a book aimed at preventing America’s Jewish community from sliding off the cultural cliff-edge, by clicking here.
