“There is no better way of ruining a noble cause than by getting rogues to represent it”.

That describes the process which has overtaken peacekeeping, environmentalism and even the campaign for racial equality.
These causes, which are otherwise noble, will take decades to recover from the grifters who have made a fortune in their name. How on earth did peacekeeping get put in the care of Kofi Annan? Why was a guy like Al Sharpton allowed to assume the role of the racial conscience of America? How come Al Gore gets to pronounce on science? The Narrative, probably. Always the Narrative. -- Belmont Club How Many Blocks Away?
