“The society which has abolished every kind of adventure makes its own abolition the only possible adventure.” Paris, May 1968

Interesting stuff about three blokes that hardly anyone under thirty has heard of.

Principia Dialectica is usually a bit too intellectually rarefied for my own simple taste but recently a couple of posts have caught my eye. One concerns the relationship between George Orwell and Michael Foot when Foot was editor of Tribune and the other item is possibly the best obituary of Colin Ward that I have come across so far.

Didn't know Foot gave Orwell the boot. But then he did have an odd "respect" for powerful men (Beaverbrook) so maybe he gave Stalin the odd admiring glance. And Orwell had moved well down the road to a more libertarian view of politics by the time Foot took over Tribune.
