The nanny state
From a couple years back but of ever greater relevance: Theodore Dalrymple appears on Buitenhof, a Dutch Sunday morning political interview show. A translation of the introduction:
Theodore Dalrymple is famous in the USA, in France and in the Netherlands he is highly regarded. While in his own country, the UK, they even refuse to publish some of his books ! Dalrymple worked for years in prisons and hospitals in the ‘slumps”. He is the author of many books which are containing razor sharp comments and criticism on the social welfare state, the nanny state, and the politicians on the left who are supporting this.
