Oh, I have an idea that Daylrymple is a harmless, bespectacled academic/English language analyzer with no agenda other than to stretch 500-word articles into 1500 words on what the meaning of "is" is....and in this case, bravery vs. cowardice.

After writing these dull essays, the old coot probably takes long walks in the woods with his walking stick, pipe and dog, wearing his tweed jacket with leather inserts in the elbows.

No, he is one of the most insisive minds in conservative thought in Europe.

He is defining the difference between bravery and courage. Something that the west doesnt get.
