Abominable Britons and their grievances

The ideal of social justice, writes Dalrymple, is

corrosive.

It has been

etched on to the psyche of the British. It has become the good that is the sine qua non of all other goods.

If society is unjust,

anything goes. The assumption of personal responsibility can be postponed until social justice (always defined by its absence, for defining it positively is rather difficult) has been attained.
