Looking carefully at that which is unseen.

Fun quote for 5 May 11

Rare indeed is the call for “national unity” that doesn’t reduce to “Let’s all come together — on my terms.”

Gene Healy

Which is true. Much like the way gun owners are chastised for their “failure to compromise,” which always prompts me to ask, “Well, what would be a fair compromise to rape or murder?” People are always interested in unity and compromise so long as it’s on their own terms and they get what they want out of the deal, so long as they don’t have to give anything up to get their way.

But that’s not unity, that’s not compromise – that’s just infantile squalling and extortion.
