Letter to the Editor: How did we get to here
“Little errors in the beginning lead to great errors in the end.” Some medieval philosopher said that. I forget which. Never has a fundamental truth been more central to our time than this one. It is certainly true in artillery aiming and golf. Just cock that club head a degree at the beginning and you will spend the day in the weeds. Big cannons are even worse. I never took any philosophy classes during my college days. My mind has never much worked in these introspective ways. It always seemed like mumbo jumbo goofiness to me, a practice for navel gazers who had too much time on their hands and no real work to do. It was something sentimentalists did on their rich parents’ money in preparation for being a liberal elitist. Most liberal Democrats, some Republicans, most professors, some federal judges and the entire Washington Swamp cling to the ideal of the “Fundamental Error” that modern people continue to make. They, like the Communists, believe that every person can be made to be good if the system around them can be made right. Evil and wrongdoing in their minds are a function of situation and if we get the situation just right, bingo, all bad behavior will vanish and the sheep will lie down with the lion.
