I’d whoop with joy if Paul Marks of “Samizdata” is wrong, but I fear he is right.

If the USA goes down to totalitarianism, then we are – or could be – all f****d. (But we survived before…?) 

But while there is Israel, and it is Nuclear, there is hope. Even in the West fails, Israel I think will go down fighting for us: it is sad and un-necessary, since we ought to have taken on board the lesson of Leftism that the Jews have been force-fed in spades.

Tolkien’s stories teach us that there is always hope.

  1. Dave:

    Tolkien’s stories teach us that there are times when we must go on fighting even when there is no hope.

    These words of Shelley’s, in “Prometheus Unbound”, say it well:

    To suffer woes which Hope thinks infinite; [4.570]
    To forgive wrongs darker than death or night;
    To defy Power, which seems omnipotent;
    To love, and bear; to hope till Hope creates
    From its own wreck the thing it contemplates;
    Neither to change, nor falter, nor repent; [4.575]
    This, like thy glory, Titan, is to be
    Good, great and joyous, beautiful and free;
    This is alone Life, Joy, Empire, and Victory.

    Best,

    Tony
