Random Note – Principles and Hypocrisy

If you donโ€™t adhere to as set of standards, principles, beliefs or values you buy yourself insurance against accusations of hypocrisy because there is no measure by which you can be judged as a hypocrite.

Random Note โ€” George Galloway

All of this, every single bit of it, is on the political class in the West of the last 50 years. Hiding under the umbrella of tolerance, (their get out of jail free euphemism for their own milquetoast pusillanimity, lack of courage, conviction and determination, they...
