Je Suis Charlie Gard

Je Suis Charlie Gard

I don’t think that Charlie grown to maturity would choose death when one more treatment was available. But even so I don’t think it is my call – and for that reason it is not the state’s call either. Je suis Charlie – with such an overreaching state, we are all potentially Charlie.

False Dichotomy: Left v. Right in the Ballot Box

Would it surprise you to know that choosing between left and right is not a real choice when you vote? Many people instinctively, or through experience, come to this realisation. Comedian Russell Brand made headlines during the last UK General Election by vocalising the pointlessness
