last refuge


, , , , , ,

monkey today see Man read on computer machine & then hear Man say The last refuge. monkey scratch head for show not understand & ask Man explain please. Man then make explanation & say I’m quoting Dr. Samuel Johnson who said, “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.”

monkey raise hand & say monkey think that patriotism = good thing for mans & ladies have.

Man make response & say I don’t disagree at all. It certainly can be when it signifies a genuine and abiding love for your country. But appeals to patriotism used by slimeballs like flag-hugging authoritarians and chump-cultivating politicians are masks for their self-interest and part of their standard tactics for manipulating their disciples.

monkey ask Man what set him off today & Man point to article in Politico what start this way.

here dear leader and great celebrity patriot donald the victorious who set good example by sacrifice so much during war in viet nam & maybe even once in while postpone golfing game call upon worker class of team u$a for make similar sacrifice.

monkey ask if there really greater good to come. Man quote catchphrase of donald the victorious, We’ll see, and add, but maybe now’s a good time to reread Animal Farm and remember that as things are turning out it’s getting more and more obvious that All Animals Are Equal But Some Are More Equal Than Others.
