    A Believer Thread

    This kind of straddles politics and religion, but I think it is insightful. The blog post is by David French, whose wife is Nancy French. I know them both from the Romney campaign and think highly of them. They are never-Trumpers, and I often agree with them, but not always. Here David writes about some recent manifestations of the “horseshoe theory,“ which is that extremes at opposite ends of the ideological spectrum eventually grow to be more and more like one another.

    The religious right has created a mirror image PC complete with cancel culture and performative anger.

    "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
    --Antoine de Saint-Exupery

    "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold."
    --Yeats

    “True, we [lawyers] build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures - unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.”

    --John W. Davis, founder of Davis Polk & Wardwell

    Riighht. That's exactly what someone in one of those groups would say.
