Stephen Fry on the threat to enlightenment

Posted by Martin Poulter on 30 April 2009

In the guise of a letter to his 16-year-old self, British national treasure Stephen Fry gives a rallying message to the gay community, and to wider society: “[T]he entire achievement of the enlightenment is under threat like never before. The cruel, hypocritical and loveless hand of religion and absolutism has fallen on the world once more.”

What’s particularly nice about this link is the way readers are commenting in the form of letters to their adolescent selves: “Dear me at 16, Natalie is not the be all and end of all of women and sex.” “Dear me at sixteen, Don’t shave your hair to a number 1, it makes you look ill.” “Dear Me at 16, Dont drink from the wine bottle that is handed to you at the beach party – it’s piss.”
