   A Pause for Thought?
   Liberty

We’ve already got a “British Bill of Rights” – it’s called our Human Rights Act. Let’s make sure it stays that way.

   Why It’s So Hard to Convince Warmists
   Matt Manos

Penetrating rational ignorance is tough because the position warmists have taken isn’t based on logic. Their position is actually based on an appeal to authority. To question the rationally ignorant warmist is to question the field of science as a whole (to be a science denier) or to question the leadership of their favorite bellwether personalities. This will cause the rationally ignorant warmist to become defensive and try to stand up for their favorite bellwether. The rationally ignorant will also point to their favorite bellwethers and say, “Who am I to doubt all these intelligent people?” It’s intellectually offshoring. It’s lazy. It’s human nature.

   Another Surveillance Law: One More Step Towards the Big Brother State
   Sean Gabb

I suggest, given all the available evidence, that this country is ruled at best by some very stupid and incompetent people. At worst it is ruled by people who say they need a police state because they want to fight crime and terrorism, but in fact need fears of crime and terrorism because they want a police state. Whatever the case, they should not be given the right to gather and store details of our electronic communications.

   Education: Schooling and Examination on the Free Market
   Keir Martland

Lastly, government need not provide schooling. The first schools were not provided by government. The schools of the future, too, will not be provided by government. In the future, if and when we finally see the back of the social democratic state, we will see a return to a system whereby employers are responsible for the ‘education’ of their employees. If my workers aren’t productive enough, if I see profit in doing so, I can pay for them to acquire a certain skill. If there is no profit in it, then I won’t. Just as the demand for labour is a derived demand, we must understand that the demand for schooling and teaching is a derived demand. If what is being taught is of no value, then the teacher, as it stands, is of no value either.

   No, Cameron, you can never have ‘too much’ tolerance
   Frank Furedi

One possible reason why Cameron feels he can associate tolerance with passivity is because, in recent decades, tolerance has been redefined as a polite gesture of non-judgementalism. In official documents and school texts, tolerance is presented as a polite character trait, rather than as a way of responding to beliefs and views with which one disagrees. Indeed, school texts on tolerance frequently treat it as synonymous with non-judgementalism. Non-judgementalism is indeed a passive act, as it involves a refusal to criticise and engage with conflicting views. But non-judgementalism is alien to the principle of tolerance. Being tolerant involves the act of judgement because we can only be tolerant towards beliefs and views with which we disagree. According to the classical-liberal outlook, tolerance involves an act of judgement and discrimination. Nevertheless, this act of judgement should not serve as a prelude to censoring another person’s wrong opinion, because tolerance demands respect for people’s right to hold beliefs in accordance with their consciences.
