veritas dixit

"Failing to develop a capacity for critical thinking certainly simplifies life."
~~ veritas


"Some things are utterly beyond parodying."
~~ veritas


"Evil exists, whether we have the stomach to call it by name or not. Either way, the only ones we fool by failing to do so is ourselves."
~~ veritas

Veritas has once again proved what an excellent fount of wisdom he is -- wisdom ladeled out in terse, pithy aphorisms that stick in your memory and inform your ideas. All I can add is -- apparet te habere ingenium profundum.

I see that I misspelled "ladled" in my previous comment. It's surprising how many times you can read over something -- and still miss a misspelling or two!
