I’m typing this the morning of Christmas Eve, which is rainy – and warm – here in The Woods of rural SW Virginia. Just a quick few lines to thank all of you for being a part of this traveling sideshow. In particular, I’d like to thank you for the quality of your contributions, which often get me thinking along new lines. It’s like wiring batteries in series; we get more juice together than individually.
Also, for the psychological boost I get from knowing there are other “kooks” out there who want to live according to the moral principle of voluntary interaction and peaceful coexistence. That not everyone is a Clover. And that those who aren’t are almost always of a much higher caliber, intellectually as well as personally. I find it of great significance that the non-Clovers can discuss without resorting to personal attacks; respond with facts when challenged and will acknowledge facts when presented with them… whereas the invariable pattern with Clovers is … derision, evasion and obfuscation. Almost as invariably delivered in mangled English.
This gives me hope because while we’re outnumbered, we’re not outgunned.
An elephant can defeat an army of ants.
So, Merry Christmas to all of you. Even Clover.
Not that he’ll have the grace to respond in kind!
