Column in NBR today (behind the paywall, sorry).
‘”Company policy” is an awful creation, a cancer of the character…You can’t outsource common sense or character in such a way. It is a gigantic cop out. And when it comes to governments, such governments have to justify themselves to citizens – not the other way around.
It is not about – to use those hackneyed terms, ”right” vs. “left”.
It is about, in the end, free citizens versus over-reaching, arrogant officialdom.’
