Quote for the day

They wrap themselves in the flag, professing love of country, saying Democrats hate America. But it’s Trumpers themselves who seem to hate (or maybe never understood) the principles, values, and ideals America stands for.

Frank S. Robinson

Most, I am convinced, are simply incapable of the ideations that undergird Enlightenment ideals, and a great many others are guided by some incoherent pastiche of notions about a cosmic monarchy headed by an Invisible Friend. It all puts me in mind of Bertrand Russell’s famous remark: “Every man, wherever he goes, is encompassed by a cloud of comforting convictions, which move with him like flies on a summer day.”
