"Voyaging through strange seas of thought, alone ..." William Wordsworth

26 January 2020


I do have moments of panic, but I also think that we can’t rectify everything. The world is outside our control. All we can ever do is create around ourselves communities of mutual affection and mutual understanding. And to attempt constantly to rectify things is to risk making them worse. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try our utmost to rescue people from error and delusion.

Sir Roger Scruton
