Leading Article: We must recognise the destructive power of the Net

AN AMERICAN court has fined anti-abortion activists $107m (pounds 66.5m) for an Internet campaign that publishes a "hit list" of doctors. The site was certainly highly offensive. Many websites are. This one, though, was a thinly veiled incitement to hatred, violence and murder. The website's graphics featured dripping blood, and "wanted"-style posters of doctors on the so-called "Nuremberg Files". The list of target doctors had their addresses attached. The names of doctors who had been killed in anti-abortion violence had a line struck through their names; those injured were listed in grey. Truly abhorrent. In a lesser vein, Andy Sinton, a Tottenham footballer, had his phone number posted on a site for Arsenal fans, leading to the inevitable torrents of abuse until his number was changed.

Leading Article: Truth and consequences

WHAT IS truth? said Nelson Mandela, but unlike jesting Pilate he stayed for an answer. In some respects, the way in which the report of Archbishop Desmond Tutu's Truth and Reconciliation Commission has appeared is unsatisfactory. It may have been underhand, and suspicious, for the African National Congress to try at the last moment to block the report. But it is grossly unfair that F W de Klerk, and he alone, should have been able to suppress passages critical of himself. For all that, the report's fierce criticism of the brutality of several different parties, including the ANC, and notably of Winnie Mandela, while scarcely pleasant reading for President Mandela himself, is profoundly impressive. It is impressive in its assumption that reconciliation can be brought about through telling the truth; and still more so in its belief that the truth should be told equally about all.

A run for their money

Open Eye: The university for industry

Confronting new thinking is fun. Discovering the writing of John Ralston Saul added to my summer enjoyment. In his Reflections of a Siamese Twin Saul examines the evolution of the nation state and the tensions between positive and negative nationalism. Using examples from poetry and painting, as much as politics, he argues that a combination of reconciliation and reform is the key to the future for complex modern nations. His book Voltaire's Bastards: the Dictatorship of Reason in the West covers an even larger canvas.
