But to behave like a cogwheel
When one knows one is no such thing,
Merely to add to a crowd with one’s passionate body
Is not a virtue.

(First Shepherd, The Vision of the Shepherds, part of the “Christmas Oratorio” For the Time Being, by W.H. Auden)

About readerjohn

I am a retired lawyer and an Orthodox Christian, living in a collapsing civilization, the modern West. There are things I'll miss when it's gone. There are others I won't. That it is collapsing is partly due to calculated subversion, summarized by the moniker "deathworks." This blog is now dedicated to exposing and warring against those deathwork - without ceasing to spread a little light.
