Bonus Quotation of the Day…

… is from page 1 of David Mamet’s hot-off-the-press 2022 book, Recessional: The Death of Free Speech and the Cost of a Free Lunch:

But we are not all good, neither is any of us good all of the time; in fact, one might say that the essence of human nature is that far from being “flawed,” we are not very damned good at all. And we know it.

The repression of this knowledge is an engine of human wickedness. And we’ve seen, in this last year, that once begun, it must escalate, like a fire searching for air.

DBx: Yes. And so we move closer to self-destruction with every grant to any human being, or to any group of human beings, of the power to coerce other, peaceful human beings.
