Mark at the Movies

A Ghillie and a Munshi

WhatsApp

As I mentioned on the radio yesterday, May 24th 2019 marks the bicentennial of Queen Victoria. So it would seem appropriate to have a bit of cinematic Victoriana for our Saturday movie date. Her Majesty was an important and consequential figure in almost every corner of the world, and once upon a time the biopics reflected that. But she was to a degree unknown and unknowable, which offers great opportunities to the contemporary biographical sensibility. And so the most notable films of the last two decades belong to a sub-genre of their own: the Queen-Empress and the men who caught the eye of a lonely and isolated woman in the long decades of her widowhood. John Madden's Mrs Brown (1997) is about the Queen's relationship with her ghillie; ...

Honey Traps and Money Traps

WhatsApp

ImageOn this second anniversary of The Mark Steyn Club, we're proud to present the second half of my interview with George Papadopoulos about his three years as a Deep State Target.

In this episode those seeking to entrap a junior Trump campaign staffer go through every dangle in the book from lots of cash to exotic honeypots. Then comes Robert Mueller, and prison - and the terrible personal cost to George and his family:

Part One of my interview with George Papadopoulos can be found here - and, if you...

A Clubman's Notes

When Unrest is Sedentary

WhatsApp

ImageWelcome to Part Two of our second-birthday Tale for Our Time: E M Forster's 1909 guide to how we will live in the twenty-first century. Thanks for all the kind comments about The Machine Stops. Sol, a First Weekend Founding Member of The Mark Steyn Club, contrasts Forster's futurists with ours:

It is fascinating how someone who preceded so much of the technology of today foresaw its effect on us. The British public at that time seemed to be waiting eagerly for the next day's newspaper to bring accounts of the world being discovered and the great promises beheld. From what I can tell, there was a general sense of shared destiny - with great enthusiasm for getting to the future. Now there's a shared orbit around a question mark.

In tonight's episode, Vashti is unnerved by a rare move away from the cyber-pleasures of the Machine back to the real world...

The Edwardian Internet

WhatsApp

ImageWelcome to our second-birthday audio adventure in our popular series Tales for Our Time. This is the twenty-seventh of our radio serials, and it comes by way of almost two years of listener requests. For example, Tim, an Ohio member of The Mark Steyn Club, writes:

My apologies if a member has already suggested that 'The Machine Stops' by E.M Forster would be a nice complement to 'The Time Machine'.

Tim isn't wrong: In this Tale for Our Time young Forster conjures a brilliant vision - from 110 years ago - of how we live now, anticipating the Internet, Google, Apple, Skype ...and their likely effect on us...
