I commend to you Senator Jeff Flake’s address to the graduating class at Harvard Law School — there is a full text here.
I have fear, however, that he may be wrong when he says we have hit rock bottom. That we have sunk to a new low is certain, but the last time I checked, we still had a reality show emcee impostering in the Oval Office. Even if he were gone, we would still have the position of POTUS, which in the long run is no different than the positions occupied by Stalin, Kim, Duterte, et al. These are positions occupied by power (illicit power) addicts.
We ask the question for the umpteenth time, as posed by Bastiat, “Do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?” Apparently they believe it, but they are wrong.
