"There are men who can't be bought." This we will find out soon I believe. True or false and to what degree I do not know. The buttons are being pushed by the people who are in he control room and safe from the mass below. There will be one button that finally creates a synergistic reaction in the sleeping many.

Oh there are men who can't be bought. Depend upon it.

Sandburg was a Socialist, but of the honorable, pre-Frankfurt School variety that produced men like Eugene Debs and the Wobblies, and that addressed genuine injustices rather than neurotic identity-politics obsessions.

For those who are depressed, discontented, or despair of the current State of Loathsome Affairs, remember, "... The fireborn are at home in fire."
Those at Valley Forge had good reason to be depressed, but they were fireborn in battle and of remorseless steel, cold-quenched to durable hardness in the ice and snow on the march to Trenton. Elder brothers, they are, to those who knew no surrender at Bastogne and so many other places.
They did not fight for glory, they did not fight for gold, they fought for what's right for all.

So, as the inventor of the sphere and would say,"If you have a pair, don't despair."
This applies as well to women with their body conic sections modestly displayed.
