After Words with Niall Ferguson

Niall Ferguson on C-Span

The economist and historian argues that western civilization came to dominate the world by developing and using six concepts: competition, science, the rule of law, modern medicine, consumerism, and the work ethic. But the more the rest of the world adopts these concepts, the less the West dominates it. Mr. Ferguson discussed the historic power of several Western empires and their inevitable decline with author and cultural critic Susan Jacoby.

Venstrefløjens fascistiske demokratibegreb:

Democracy Versus Mob Rule

by Thomas Sowell on Oct 31st, 2011

Logo FrontPageMagazine SmallIn various cities across the country, mobs of mostly young, mostly incoherent, often noisy and sometimes violent demonstrators are making themselves a major nuisance.

Meanwhile, many in the media are practically gushing over these “protesters,” and giving them the free publicity they crave for themselves and their cause — whatever that is, beyond venting their emotions on television.

Members of the mobs apparently believe that other people, who are working while they are out trashing the streets, should be forced to subsidize their college education — and apparently the President of the United States thinks so too.

Niall Ferguson: The 6 killer apps of prosperity

Over the past few centuries, Western cultures have been very good at creating general prosperity for themselves. Historian Niall Ferguson asks: Why the West, and less so the rest? He suggests half a dozen big ideas from Western culture — call them the 6 killer apps — that promote wealth, stability and innovation. And in this new century, he says, these apps are all shareable.

Douglas Murray om Ayaan Hirsi Ali & Niall Fergusons bryllup

Et kirkebryllup. Aha. Javel så. Man har vel et standpunkt…

Right Wedding

Douglas Murray – October 2011

Logo Standpoint Magazine

I have never seen a bride walk up the aisle faster than Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She said afterwards that it was nerves propelling her. But it was more obviously happiness. The memorial chapel at Harvard was the setting for a crowd of us to gather, on September 10, to witness her marriage to Niall Ferguson. With stock markets tumbling and newspapers predicting terrorist attacks, the union of these two equal and unequalled people, united us in joy. And it reminded me, as did the funeral of a friend a few weeks earlier, that even for atheists when it comes to life’s major milestones the Church still does it best.

Drinking and dancing followed in Boston. I joined what I thought was the receiving line for the bride and groom and lingered a while before discovering it was a greeting line for Henry Kissinger. The post-dinner dance floor would have been the Guardian’s worst nightmare.

Uriasposten om Danmarks Radio:

Et klart mønster tegner sig. Konservative medier får etiketten ‘højreorienteret’, hvorimod venstreorienterede får ‘uafhængig’, ‘velanset’ eller ‘troværdig’.
