" The subject of his scorn may have been socially conservative Americans bent on the abolition of social progressives, but clearly anyone can gleam a bit of wisdom from such blunt counsel.

    “No one knows whether death is really the greatest blessing a man can have, but they fear it is the greatest curse, as if they knew well.” –Plato.
