Barcelona terror attack: Are we becoming desensitised to barbarity?

Maybe those of us who can only watch on in horror can fall victim to the banality of evil too.


Falwell Jr applauds Trump because he 'says what's in his heart' – but that's exactly the problem

Notorious Trump ally and evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr last week explained his controversial and long-running support for the US president. Trump's virtue, Falwell said, is that he 'says what's in his heart'. This sadly betrays a vanilla, Disney-ified and narcissistic philosophy that elevates 'being true to yourself' above all else. It also, ironically, underlines the problem so many have with Mr Trump – they don't like what's in his heart.
