Thought for today: Stay ruthlessly consistent
A large share of the Socratic struggle, whether in philosophy or politics and law, is to separate claims from rooting interests, so that when you praise or condemn something, you mean you would praise or condemn it with the same force no matter who did it. Or, if not, that you can explain why not. You stay ruthlessly consistent.
