To parody a paraphrase of the famous Barry Goldwater proverb: "Intolerance in the defense of sanctity is no vice. Compassion in the pursuit of reparations is no virtue." How pusillanimous it is to even assume responsibility for the past in the present to architects of a future bent towards prospering off continual inculcations of that early history, but even more so to bend knee to the avarice of the progeny and compatriotic pabulum whose expedient thrift is paramount for the progressive faction. For there, I extend but one finger, lifted in defiance than in support, and smote outwards than inwards.
