A law for the suppression of baseball caps

Inelegant, crass, uncouth and moronic

Baseball caps, writes Dalrymple,

have the effect of making the intelligent look average and the average moronic. Can anyone look intelligent or dignified in a baseball cap?

Such caps are, he avers,

inelegant at best and hideous at worst.

People wear them in restaurants,

which is uncouth and crass, and is a habit that I would like to see suppressed with the full vigour of the law.


Criminal malversation of funds

Screen Shot 2016-08-20 at 15.08.39Is British cycling success the consequence of superior pharmacology?

Great Britain, writes Dalrymple,

to its eternal disgrace, has done extremely well in the latest games. Per capita it has far outperformed the USA. By the same token, New Zealand, to its great and everlasting shame, has outperformed even it by as great a margin.

Picking up the London Guardian newspaper, which he calls the Izvestia of British liberals (liberals in the US sense), Dalrymple comes across an article that praises

the glories of central planning, in witness whereof was the success—not to say, world dominance—of the British cycling team. This was attributed to the government’s ‘investment’, in my view a criminal malversation of funds, in facilities for racing cyclists.

Let us admit for a moment, says Dalrymple,

what yet has to be proved, that the British success in this sphere was not the consequence of superior pharmacology. We may justly ask what kind of person would rejoice in such a victory for his country. Surely only a moron, though it must be admitted that such imbecility is pretty evenly spread around the globe.

Condemned to a world of violence, drugs and familial insecurity

The marked lack of stability in the households of Jamaicans is a cause of their poor achievement at school and elsewhere, Dalrymple writes. But a more important factor is the culture they have adopted for themselves, which is one of

perpetual spontaneity and immediate gratification, whose largely industrialised and passively consumed products are wholly worthless sub specie aeternitatis.

The young Jamaican males

may have been sold a bill of goods by an unscrupulous entertainment industry, purveying drivel to morons, but they have bought it with their eyes open. Seen from the outside, at least, this culture is one upon whose valuelessness no execration could be sufficiently heaped.
