I think anything goes in fiction as long as it fits within the interior logic of the work itself and is presented in a disciplined manner.
– Hanya Yanagihara
War, in our country, ought never to be resorted to but when it is clearly justifiable and necessary; so much so as not to require the aid of logic to convince our understanding nor the ardour of eloquence to inflame our passions. There are many reasons why this country should never resort to it but for causes the most urgent and necessary.
– John C. Calhoun
Standing athwart ineffective, feel-good legislation shouting, ‘Stop!’ is seen as a betrayal of those struggling to get their footing on the lowest rung of the economic ladder. Yet raising the minimum wage hacks the lowest rungs off the ladder altogether. But economic logic doesn’t wash with liberals who are intent on inflaming class warfare.
