I went to a fab production of Oklahoma! last night. Our local theatre, the Gordon Craig, can put on some brilliant stuff when it is free to (sadly, pop / rock tribute acts pay the bills – and I can hardly complain, having hugely enjoyed Think Floyd here).
I’m reading and enjoying Sapiens, by Israeli academic Yuval Noah Harari. I've just reached the point where he discusses the existence of two essential but clashing political desiderata, freedom and equality.
I think there are more interesting rival basic desiderata.
