Is it better to drive them into the sea or laugh them off the stage?
As for the current crop of wannabe kings, ridicule and humiliation don’t seem to work. I think I know why. It’s a hard thing to examine our beliefs, especially our most closely-held beliefs. That examination can only be done by the power of language; a mind, quietly asking and answering in turn, questioning everything and making finer and finer distinctions. A careful weighing of words should be all it takes to dismiss ALL of the ruling class, but we cling to our belief that if only we could chuck out the rotters, then, by God, we’d get the government we deserve. Sad to say, we already have the government we deserve.
