Blast From The Past

“Let it be asked how any person wholly devoid of talent, skill, accomplishment, wit, beauty, charm, or even the practical ability to earn a living by routine labor, can conceivably become an object of flattering, greeted with applause and given a hearing for the feeblest inanities — obviously nothing will serve except political position.”

— Isabel Paterson, The God of the Machine (1943)

We should consider ourselves fortunate that The Big Zero is actually a mere mortal who is only deified by the press and some of his supporters. The alternative is much worse.
