Does anyone remember a show called The History Man, from a Malcolm Bradbury novel. Set in an English university in the early 70’s, the main player is a sociology lecturer called Howard Kirk, played by Anthony Sher with a fearsome Jewfro.
I just bought the DVD from o/s recently (less than $20). I think this was where I consolidated my views against left-wing fundamentalism. Howard Kirk is an absolute shocker, and I for one am glad I didn’t do a university degree where your essays would be failed if your views disagreed with those of the marker.
But the likes of E12 would regard me as an out-and-out Communist. I despise the outer three-quarters of both wings. The only place is the centre or nearby where you can be fair to everybody.
