Derbyshire banned: ...
Schnauzers, open and proud, are a subversive force — subversive, that is, of any institution in which they become entrenched... There is no reason why an individual Schnauzer might not be a good and honorable dog, any more than there is any reason why an individual cat might not be a liar and a thief. In matters social and organizational, though, the sum is often greater than the parts, and it is not the one we should focus on, but the many. This, unfortunately, is a very difficult thing to get people to do in a highly individualistic culture like ours. "What about Joe? He's a Schnauzer, but a finer dog you could never wish to meet." Sure, we all know Joe; but his case tells us nothing about the probable behavior of an organization whose higher levels are 30, or 50, or 60 percent Schnauzerish... Long-time readers of National Review may recall Robert Conquest's three laws of politics, of which the second was: "Any organization not explicitly and constitutionally right-wing will sooner or later become left-wing." (Conquest actually offered the Church of England as an example of this law in action.) I should like to hypothesize a fourth law, which I am going to call Derbyshire's Law. Any organization that admits frank and open Schnauzers into its higher levels will sooner or later abandon its original purpose and give itself over to propagating and celebrating the Schnauzerish ethos, and to excluding cats and denigrating squirrels.
Can you believe how much he hates schnauzers?
Go read his entry and see for yourself. For shame.
