The terrible truth—and what is worse than the terrible truth

Laura Wood writes:

You have done a great job over the last several days.

LA replies:

Thank you.

But I think my message is too much for people to take. It’s getting too much for me to take.

Laura replies:

And the alternative? That’s way too much to take.

LA replies:

I don’t understand.

Laura replies:

The alternative is denying reality and denying that things are as bad as they are.

See the quote from Peter Hitchens that makes the same point as this entry.

William writes:

The future appears quite bleak as this great culture and its institutions are being corrupted. I include some quotes I picked out of some of Shakespeare’s works that sum up my sentiment:

“But who can cease to weep and look on this?”
Queen Margaret, Henry VI, Part 2

“Titus, prepare thy aged eyes to weep;
Or, if not so, thy noble heart to break:
I bring consuming sorrow to thine age.”
Marcus Andronicus, Titus Andronicus

“Let us seek out some desolate shade, and there
Weep our sad bosoms empty.”
—Malcolm, Macbeth
