Iraq Election 
31st-Jan-2005 08:19 pm
I feel widly triumphant. After months of hearing people badmouth democracy, Iraqis, "adventurism in Iraq" and other elements of
"common foolishness", finally I get to celebrate the vindication of the simple truths that classical philosophers uphold: that virtue is common, that people long for freedom and are happiest when they have a voice in their affairs, and that sophistication is usually the voice of despair, and not worth listening to because despair is dumb.

What is even funnier, though, is listening to those who are habitually wrong try and come up with a rationale that will enable them to maintain their foolishness.

So I'm pleased.
