One problem with globalisation is that bad ideas seem to travel faster than good ones; first there was smearing tomato ketchup on everything; then drinking sugar-soaked cocktails ('Cosmo'-politanism) instead of our traditional whisky soda, and now this idea that we should abandon the poor to their fate in order to protect their dignity.

全球化的一个问题是,坏主意似乎比好主意传播得快。 首先,在所有东西上涂抹番茄酱。 然后喝加糖的鸡尾酒(“ Cosmo”政治风气),而不是我们传统的威士忌苏打水,现在有了这样的想法,我们应该放弃穷人的命运,以保护他们的尊严。

在腐烂的垃圾中分类以找到可以喂孩子的东西,或者因为没有钱而向某人要钱,这并没有什么端庄的尊严(任何曾在想问别人之前就先给别人钱的人都永远不会忘记他们的感激之情。

甚至连激进的自由市场思想的米尔顿·弗里德曼(Milton Friedman)也愿意考虑政府对初等教育的干预,理由是儿童由于生于可怜的父母而得不到生活机会,这是不公平的。

My sense of my own superiority over many of my classmates would have been much more muted if I knew that they had seen me failing miserably at woodwork or cross-stitch.

If there can be films about why hockey (and not just cricket) is cool, there can be a film or two about the virtues of honest, hard work.
