Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

How long before Fox News starts telling us that Nelson Mandela was really a conservative?

What an amazing life.

I've been reading about Stoicism, because I greatly admire the idea that the world makes sense, but you have to take it as it comes to you, rather than lust after some idealized version of the world that doesn't exist.

But you sure have to admire it when a single man changes a country and indeed the world.

God Bless...
