Clear

by Richard Brookhiser

I was out of the country yesterday, and I don’t have my copy handy now. But somewhere Marcus Aurelius says, Either an all-seeing Providence, or iron destiny, or an uncontrollable storm. Whichever it is, why should you do anything other than what is right?

I believe in the first, but whichever way the world is, our course is clear: Tear down these people. Tear down their killers, their witchdoctors and their patrons. Tear them down to the ground. It will take a long time, decades. Spend as long as it takes.

The Corner

The one and only.
