The Guardian view on Confederate statues: they must fall | Editorial

Toppling symbols of hate is not an assault on the past but a defence of the futureOne Friday afternoon in September 1994, a statue was pulled down from in front of provincial government offices in what was then the Orange Free State in South Africa. It depicted Hendrik Verwoerd, the country’s prime minister from 1958 to 1961, administrative architect of “apartheid” and a vicious racist. No one who grasps the barbarism that his doctrines imposed laments the removal of monuments in his honour.Is the morality of statues honouring heroes of the Confederacy in the US civil war any more complicated? The south fought to preserve a social order founded on white racial supremacy, and economically dependent on industrial-scale slavery – a vast crime. Monuments now targeted for removal were erected not in ignorance of that atrocity but in defiant celebration of it. Their message was simple: while the law now forbids slavery, the oppression of African-Americans, their exclusion from civil rights and intimidation by a culture of casual and institutional racism will endure. It is precisely because that message has a willing audience in the US that the statues are so toxic.

  • Liberal Pollsters Report Confederate Statues Should Stay Unified Patriots by Vassarbushmills Daily Caller reports astounding findings over the weekend about public sentiment over Confederate statues, largely found in the South. The most amazing poll is that by a 44%-41% split, African-Americans want the statues to stay. It would have been even more informative had the polls reflected the votes by regions of the country, red or blue, the levels…View On WordPress

The Guardian view on ‘the mutineers’: protecting parliament | Editorial
They are presented as a threat to democracy. But all MPs who challenge the government play a part in strengthening it The “mutineers”, the 15 Conservative MPs pictured on the front of Wednesday’s Daily Telegraph, looked more like new members of a golf club than a clique determined to undermine the will of the people. But this was not meant as a joke, and it had consequences that were not in the least amusing. The 15, all of them potential rebels against the government’s decision to write the EU exit date on to the face of the withdrawal
The Guardian view on the UK’s next census: counting what counts | Editorial
The Office for National Statistics is trying to find an accurate way of measuring the number of trans Britons. It’s harder than it looks Britons have been describing themselves more or less honestly to government at 10-year intervals since 1801, producing each decade a mirror that reflects back the changing world: more populous, healthier, more diverse and (nowadays) getting older. Each time, a few people declare themselves conscientious objectors, and some
The Guardian view on translation: an interpretative and creative act | Editorial
Translation is always an interpretation: an act of creation that also, paradoxically, demands a fierce loyalty to the original text. Translators are our guides into other times and territories. The sonnet was a southern European form brought to England through Thomas Wyatt’s translations of Petrarch.
The Guardian view on opera: still powerful, still relevant | Editorial
The V&A’s new exhibition, the first to be shown in its elegant, recently completed extension by architect Amanda Levete, is devoted to the gloriously extreme world of opera. The show, a collaboration with the Royal Opera House, tells a story that begins with the birth pangs of the artform amid the new sounds of Monteverdi’s Coronation of Poppaea in Venice in 1643, continues with the Handel-obsessed London of the early decades of the 18th century, and passes on to the shock of the premiere of The Marriage of Figaro in 1786, with its dangerou
The Guardian view on the Reformation: justification through faith | Editorial
Luther’s 95 Theses were supposedly nailed to a church door in Wittenberg 500 years ago on Tuesday. It is impossible to read Luther, for all his coarse vitality, as an apostle of common sense. The reformation was an argument within western Christianity, not a rejection of all that had gone before.
The Guardian view on Mugabe’s resignation: the end of an era in Zimbabwe | Editorial
Zimbabweans cheered and sang as they learned that their president’s 37-year rule was over. But they understand the dangers ahead Robert Mugabe’s liberation hero to his people. When he lost their support he hung on by every means at his disposal. Now his brutal reign is over. But the hope is shaded this time by deep concern about what lies ahead. Forcing his resignation was hardly simple: it took much manoeuvring, a military intervention and the opening of impeachment proceedings before he had to bow to the inevitable. What comes next is mur
The Guardian view on Theresa May: struggling to survive | Editorial
The prime minister’s authority is broken. Yet the Tory party has little confidence that anyone else would do the job better Tory party politics, says a leftwing character in James Graham’s new West End play, Labour of Love , consist largely of “posh squirrels fighting in a bag”. This week, the Conservatives look all set to provide spectacular proof of Graham’s character’s scathing comment. Theresa May has come to the party’s conference in Manchester with her authority broken. In June she squandered her majority in an election she

Where have all the Confederate Statues come from? Why are there so many Confederate Statues in the United States? The Confederate States LOST the Civil War so why are there so many statues to people who tried to break up the country and lost? I've heard today that there are about 1500 statues around the country. They seem to have been put up long after the war and many (more strangely) in places that weren't part of the Confederate States. Where did all these statues of people who tried to destroy the United States or America but LOST come from? It seems strange to idolize the losing side so much. I can't think of another instance where the losing side is so revered.
