The O'Palmer is looking for correspondants, writers, researchers, friends and collaborators. Get involved, Get in touch ...

Whether first time or returning .... Hello.

Welcome to the O'Palmer - a break from the norm.

The O'Palmer cares about society and that which makes a society; people. There are so many parts and yet the whole is greater again. Whether by design or accident, definition of any demographic in essentialist terms is wrong and ultimately damaging. It dehumanises the individuals and it is culturally embarrassing. It's not enough to say, like Father Ted "Down with this sort of thing", it's crucial to profoundly understand it, and only then can it be addressed.
