It must seem I’m a cynic who’s always complaining about politicians & finds nothing worthy in most of their words & deeds. It comes up in my messages around Pope Francis who talks a good game but then compromises with tyranny in deeds. Why should any compromise on war, occupation, persecution, genocide be tolerable? Why should we not set the highest standards of justice possible & stick to our commitments? We’re socialized to accept the lesser evil but to my mind we should demand the highest good & accept no discounts on that.
