Busybodies

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.

Lewis

Christmas

If I could work my will,” said Scrooge indignantly, “every idiot who goes about with “Merry Christmas” on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!”  Ebenezer Scrooge’s words to his nephew in Dicken’s classic book A Christmas Carol. 

I encourage you to dive deep into this book and not be changed by it and its message.  If you are not effected in some way, I sentence you to 24 hours of continuous forced watching of a Wonderful Life with Jimmy Stewart.  Merry Christmas friends.
