News from around the world

PC brigade turn us into ‘victims’
by Lori Anderson, The Scotsman, July 22, 2014. My feeling is that we’ve all become hyper-sensitised to every possible slight or insult, injury or denigration. Like Sherlock Holmes with his magnifying glass, they are on the lookout for any statement with which they disagree, or clumsy comment on which they can pounce and claim as their own personal wound, because this in turn empowers them and allows them to feel self-righteous.
Millennials priced out of procreation
by Walter Russell Mead, American Interest, July 22, 2014. Many people in their prime parenting years aren’t having babies, not because they’re happily “child-free”, but because they think they can’t afford it.
Making time for family helps you and your children
by Rebecca Hagelin, Washington Times, July 22, 2014. The time many families spend together is crammed with wall-to-wall activities. Mothers and fathers ferry their kids about feverishly — a play date here, a practice there — tethered by cellphones and sustained by meals on the run. You can’t really know your children if all of your time with them is spent running to and fro.
Female politicians won't help real women
by Peter Hitchens, Daily Mail (UK) Blog, July 20, 2014. Why do people think that women in politics will help ordinary women lead better lives? Political females are almost all ambitious careerists who have decided, of their own free will, to work outside the home and spurn the task of raising children.
Govt data show U.S. in decade-long cooling
by James Taylor, Forbes, June 25, 2014. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s most accurate, up-to-date temperature data confirm the United States has been cooling for at least the past decade. The NOAA temperature data are driving a stake through the heart of alarmists claiming accelerating global warming.
Canadian unilateral disarmament
by Michael Byers, National Post (Canada), July 8, 2014. Canada’s Conservative prime minister, despite his tough talk about supporting the troops, has reduced defence spending to just 1 per cent of GDP — the lowest level in Canadian history.
Are the authoritarians winning?
by Michael Igantieff, The New York Review of Books, July 10, 2014. The recent handshake between Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping celebrated something more than a big gas deal. It heralded the emergence of an alliance of authoritarian states with a combined population of 1.6 billion in the vast Eurasian space that stretches from the Polish border to the Pacific, from the Arctic Circle to the Afghan frontier.
Anti-semitism on rise in Putin’s Russia
by Victor Davidoff, Moscow Times, May 27, 2013. Since President Vladimir Putin first came to power, Russia has become a field where the threatening weeds of xenophobia and nationalism grow rampant.
Mitrokhin’s KGB archive opens to public
Churchill Archives Centre, University of Cambridge, July 7, 2014. From 1972 to 1984, Major Vasiliy Mitrokhin was a senior archivist in the KGB’s foreign intelligence archive — with unlimited access to hundreds of thousands of files from a global network of spies and intelligence gathering operations.
Family memories of Hungary
by David Pryce-Jones, Hungarian Review, Vol. 5, No. 3, May 14, 2014. What’s really been lost isn’t property but the chance to know from the inside another language, another people, another country.
