    Dear Prof. Garton Ash,
    I have been trying to send you our (LSE IDEAS) lecture and dinner invitation for some time now.
    Could you please get in touch with me on above email so that I can send you our official invite?

    With thanks and kind regards,
    Tiha Franulovic, P.A. to Professors Cox and Westad

    Soooo… How do Garton’s principles *improve* on what we *already* have in the West (which he seems almost ashamed of) Exactly what limits should we impose on ourselves as signatories to these principles? If none, then isn’t he just blowing smoke? Sounds like a case of Oxford-itis.
