Don’t remove a fly from your friend’s forehead with an axe

 

I bet that there were myriads that thought George Washington was a bad thing, that Lincoln was probably not American, that FDR sucked up to the Commies, or that Hillary wasn’t fitted to be President, but the “look at me, no, over here, look at me” crowd is, let’s face it, amorphously self-possessed in a way that is perhaps unique.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
