    America's saviour

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 18/10/2019

    » Bill Clinton wasn't the best president of the United States of America, nor was he the worst. Nor was he the most oversexed. John F. Kennedy had more pillow-mates by far. Yet Jackie Kennedy and Hillary Clinton didn't make a fuss about it.

    The kids aren't alright

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 08/11/2019

    » Crime is not limited by gender or age. Men, women and children can all end up behind bars for committing criminal acts. Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Many jurists advocate that laws be reconsidered periodically to determine whether they are still applicable. Some turn into the Blue Laws of yore, still on the books but no longer enforced. Others get overturned.

    Religion and warfare

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 06/09/2019

    The Future isn't now

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 29/08/2019

    Pulling it all together

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 21/07/2017

    » What I learned from years of backpacking is that there's no single pattern of development. Every country I've been to has had its unique history, which is why the prospect of globalisation is incongruous and why mother countries couldn't hold on to their colonies.

    Flight of fancy

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 22/03/2019

    » Intelligence agencies the world over see Russia's cloak-and-dagger operations as the greatest danger. But Russia's chief enemy is the US, to which it causes endless mischief, both directly and indirectly.

    Isis foiled

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 15/02/2019

    » Until a few years ago, no Western publisher dared say a word against Isis, the Muslim terrorist extremists infamous for taking umbridge and reacting violently. No longer. Isis is now targeted by the media and by novelists with impunity.

    Reinventing oneself

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 20/06/2016

    » It isn't uncommon for people to reinvent themselves when they move to another country. Doing so in their homeland is difficult, as they may well be recognised, even of they undergo cosmetic surgery.
