Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Death of a Radical

There's a martyr now around whom to rally. There are people in jail around whom to rally. There's a cause for the feeble-minded and the politically delusionary to embrace. There is a wildness in our politics, and the fringes are expanding almost by the day.--Esquire, Jan. 27.

It's a done deal, with possibly more to come.
