And, like Charlie Gard, we will all die at the behest of the State, and at the place and time the State directs.
It reminds me. I have something for John McCain. It was written about Julius Caesar, by the man who killed him. This is a bit premature, of course.
Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living and die all slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live all free men? As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honour him: but, as he was ambitious, I slew him.
There is tears for his love; joy for his fortune; honour for his valour; and death for his ambition.
Who is here so base that would be a bondman? If any, speak; for him have I offended.
Who is here so rude that would not be a Roman? If any, speak; for him have I offended.
Who is here so vile that will not love his country? If any, speak; for him have I offended.
I pause for a reply.
Yes, well. Who here is so base.....so rude....so vile....? I pause for a reply.
