Comfort ye

"All the people at the controls are opportunists or gangsters...There  doesn't even seem to be a normal intelligence at work in the affairs of the nation.  Aren't you frightened by it?!"

That's from a letter Tennessee Williams wrote to his publisher, James Laughlin, in 1947, when both America and Williams are considered to have been at their confident best (we were the only country with nuclear weapons and unchallenged economic power, and he had just written A Streetcar Named Desire).  It's always the worst time to be alive.

Be not afraid, and hang on.  Here endeth the lesson.
