The Book of Great Evil

…and the worst part is 💩THE SPEECH💩. That’s 60 pages of my life I’m never getting back.

I think it was after reading it that I came up with my favorite critique: “I’ve seen better paper after wiping my ass.”

One reply on “The Book of Great Evil”

For your consideration (an alternate parable explaining the same philosophy as Atlas Shrugged, albeit in fewer than 60/600 pages). Once upon a time, there were three little pigs. For safety/security, they built three houses – one built a house of straw, one a house of sticks, and one a house of bricks. A big, bad, wolf came and blew down the house of straw, and then the house of sticks, so two little pigs ran to the safety of the house of bricks, where they were saved. Question: How big did the third pig make the house of bricks? Apparently, large enough for three pigs. Why did he me make the house so large? Because he anticipated a wolf and that the other two pigs would seek shelter. Why did he do it? Because he felt responsible for the other pigs, even though they made short-sighted decisions. The third little pig had to work three times as hard as the other two because he could foresee that (a) they would be endangered, and (b) they would run to his house for safety. Summary: Intelligent people are burdened by the short-sightedness, stupidity, and greediness of others.
