rally caps

Kids say the darnedest things (“Nature is a great natural phenomenon,” “Ayn Rand makes a lot of sense”) and I’m up to my neck reading and grading them now.  So the next installment of Richardson’s James bio must wait. But here’s a quick and crucial thought whose time apparently is still not yet, dating from the eve of the great earthquake that confirmed for James his sense of the possibility of a “moral equivalent of war”:

“The wars of the future must  be waged inside of every country, between the destructive and constructive ideals and forces.”

“Destructive” is on a winning streak, but Happy Pragmatists like James and me have our rally caps on.

Back to the pile.
