After five years my term as a church elder has finished. And at the same church meeting suggestions for the future direction of the fellowship were solicited.
One of the most blackly humorous things I’ve come across in the last couple of days was a discussion between Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying on the US Homeland Security’s helpful definitions of “terrorism” speech.
Perhaps the maddest or saddest thing I saw in yesterday’s news was the return of Boris Johnson from Saudi Arabia, with his tail between his legs, having failed to secure an oil deal to replace what he’s sanctioned from Russia.
Imagine that, in a journal with a name like “Climate Science,” you saw a paper which began, “Before the widespread use of fossil fuels much of the earth was covered with vast ice-sheets thousands of feet thick. But through the use of coal, oil and gas we now have a climate that, for most, is warm, productive and pleasant.”

When I was still at primary school, for a brief spell I became a behavioural psychologist. I must have been 10 or 11 when I and my friend Simon started discussing the crazes that intermittently swept through schools in those days. What set them going?

You’ve heard of “compassion fatigue,” that phenomenon whereby frequent graphic depictions of human misery worldwide compete to be more graphic and frequent until the public eventually becomes saturated, and ceases giving to anything any more.

Perhaps the most perceptive description I’ve seen recently of the national (for which read “Western”) zeitgeist is that the population has just received a software update.
Anomalies are often the key to truth: the annoying aberration of a fact from one’s view of the world can lead to new insights that completely overturn your reality.
