Should the madman rule?
Chris features a report on the opening debate from the Edinburgh festival, Hitchens' vs. Lennox on The New Europe Should Prefer the New Atheism. Looks like a good debate - I'll be looking out for the recording if it's produced. In Nietzsche's language, one could rephrase the debate: the madman should rule. Though I'd think for Nietzsche that if the New Europe actually consisted of his new men, the question wouldn't need to be asked.
