UFOs: The silly season comes early this time

UFOs: The silly season comes early this time

Friday, 11 June 2021 | Gwynne Dyer

Then there are all the suggestions that the UFOs are optical illusions, meteorological phenomena or electromagnetic events The Silly Season has come early this year.  Normally it happens in August, when wicked people all over the northern hemisphere temporarily stop doing evil things to take their children to the beach and...

Afghanistan: The same sell-out, a different day

Afghanistan: The same sell-out, a different day

Monday, 15 March 2021 | Gwynne Dyer

The US is abandoning Afghanistan, just like it abandoned South Vietnam, and it’s demanding that the puppet ruler give it political cover for withdrawal and take the blame In a letter to Afghan President Ashraf Ghani recently, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken insisted that Ghani agree to share power with...

Quarantine  Brazil, Now!

Quarantine Brazil, Now!

Wednesday, 10 March 2021 | Gwynne Dyer

There is no evidence of community spread of P.1 in other countries yet, but it is only a matter of time If I were a world dictator, I would immediately place Brazil under total quarantine: Nobody gets in, nobody comes out. And I would keep it isolated until they arrest and...

Dubai’s sheikh has 25 children, so he obviously loves kids, but his daughters keep trying to escape!  Dubai can be amusing, in a voyeuristic way, for a week or two. The tallest building in the world and the mall with the shark tank, but it’s the people, really. There are a...

China in a tizzy to prevent ‘feminisation’ of male adolescents

China in a tizzy to prevent ‘feminisation’ of male adolescents

Monday, 15 February 2021 | Gwynne Dyer

This will eventually be resolved, as these things usually are, by the magic of generational turnover. The young will outlive the old and become the majority It seemed innocent enough at the start: Just a surge in the number of boys coming to school with notes from doctors saying they were...

Republican split the only way out?

Republican split the only way out?

It's a risk but genuine conservatives have no future in a party under Donald Trump anyway  If the Republican Party splits, what name should the breakaway party use? The Conservative Party, maybe? This question has not become a burning issue yet, because it’s far from clear that the Republican Party...
