As our wise and far-sighted administration prepares for war against Iran and tries to bring the nation (that’s us) to support its folly, I think it would be good to recall a few words from the much elder statesman: Mark Twain.
“In religion and politics people’s beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination.”
“We despise all reverences and all objects of reverence which are outside the pale of our list of sacred things. And yet, with strange inconsistency, we are shocked when other people despise and defile the things which are holy to us.”
“Whenever you find that you are on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
“Our country, right or wrong...” Have you not perceived that that phrase is an insult to the nation?”
