The dark-shadowed sweet shop of the internet – @AndrewMarr9 #Writing
“Superabundance is foisted upon us as the only sure route to happiness. And from the dark-shadowed sweet shop of the internet to the imminent arrival of driverless cars, we prefer the untried to the tried every time.”
A thought-provoking column from Andrew Marr in yesterday’s Sunday Times. He discusses the differing extremes of conservative thought: open versus closed, Anywheres versus Somewheres, Economist versus Daily Mail.
It’s a great column, but mostly I just loved that phrase, the”dark-shadowed sweet shop of the internet”.
