Meanwhile, Brecher writes about the Hindu-Buddhist civil war in Sri Lanka and its origin in the British Empire's labor policies of transplanting hard-working Hindus around the globe to supplant shiftless locals. Dolan and Brecher don't disagree all that much in their negative evaluation of the British Empire, but Brecher, oddly enough, is a lot more suave and good-tempered about it.
If Brecher is a character made up by Dolan, then Dolan is playing an interesting game by creating a fictitious character who is more prudently moderate about the single most unpopular thing that Dolan cares deeply about. It would make more sense to do the opposite: be less Anglophobic under your own name while creating a pen name under which you would vent your passions against the English. But then interesting writers don't always do what's in their own best interests, career-wise.
