Notes from a small island
A weblog by Jonathan Ali

'Almost 50 years ago now, I felt compelled to write in a speech for Judge Danforth in The Crucible : "You must understand, sir, a person is either with this court or he must be counted against it, there be no road between. This is a sharp time, now, a precise time - we live no longer in the dusky afternoon when evil mixed itself with good and befuddled the world. Now, by God's grace, the shining sun is up, and them that fear not light will surely praise it. I hope you will be one of those."

'How many times do we have to indulge the same idiocies for which we must later be ashamed?'

Arthur Miller drawing parallels between then and now, in the UK Guardian's Saturday Review.
