23 December 2015. A Colloquy on Tsars and Pompous Pseudo-Intellectuals

A friend and I had this exchange (I’m in plain type):

Why do the eggheads hate Tsar Aleksandr? He was faithful to his wife, loved his children, told the truth bluntly and without guile, pardoned all death sentences, and the land was at peace and prospered. What’s wrong with that?

The eggheads hate all tsars because they think that only they can do anything for humanity, and that any who aren’t eggheads are useless…

I need add nothing to that, save to say to beware all pompous airy-fairy pseudo-intellectuals, especially, those who call themselves “liberals” or “progressives”… they have a fancy to test out their ideas… with us as the guinea-pigs. I think that I’d rather pass that “opportunity” up. I’m not alone in thinking that way.
