It's a good thing

that Ex Cathedra, although a White Male Oppressor, has no power in this world.
Otherwise there'd be a forest of gallows as far as the eye could see.

Despite my respect for the military, it is no accident that both SNAFU and FUBAR have their origins there.

It is true, as my grandmother used to say in her own version of Murphy's Law, that "all human things, given time, go badly." And regardless of who is in charge or what your politics or religion is, there is no protection from the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, from the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to.

But the guilt-driven egalitarianism of a post-Sixties America unhinged from its Founding Fathers' sense of realism*, a groundless, pathetically suicidal and stupid ethic which provokes compulsive moral submission to minorities --the more alien, the more dysfunctional and the more hostile the better-- is one of the most foolish and contemptible ideas in all of human history.

*Realism which is now considered racism, sexism, classism, etc.
