Why the Wicked Witch Isn't Dead









If you have the time, please read this extremely sad piece written by Johann Hari.


Johann Hari (born 21 January 1979) is a left-liberal British journalist and writer. He is a columnist for The Independent, the Evening Standard and the Huffington Post. His work has also appeared in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The New Republic, Le Monde, Slate, El Pais, the Sydney Morning Herald and Ha'aretz.

Hari describes himself as a "European social democrat", who believes that markets are "an essential tool to generate wealth" but must be matched by strong democratic governments and strong trade unions or they become "disastrous."

He appears regularly as an arts critic on the BBC show Newsnight Review.

Our only antidote is to insist on evidence. Whenever there are charges against a person or group, we must ask insistently: How do we know? Show me the proof. Show me three times. Show me 10.
