XVI: Balance of Madness
Authoritarianism is one hell of an act to follow. Every tenth-bit parlor-Prussian is under the happy delusion that “when comes the Revolution,” he’s gonna be on top of the heap. It’s the dumbest con on record, but if it didn’t work on some of the people, some of the time, we wouldn’t be freezing our asses off here at the South Pole, would we?
