There’s an aphorism from the Japanese book of the Samurai warrior, the Hagakure. It simply warns us against indulging in self-delusion for the purpose of shallow and vacuous comforts.
There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When encountering a sudden shower, we may try to avoid getting wet. But, while doing things such as moving from place to place or passing under the eaves of houses, we still get wet. If you are resolved from the beginning, though you get the same soaking, you will not be perplexed.
It is a splendid nugget of wisdom I’d like to dedicate to the Puerto Rican disastress-in-chief, Carmen Yulin.
Yulin is vilely sub-exploiting her country’s tragic misfortune for American leftists who would rather see thousands, millions of people suffer, than let Donald Trump appear sympathetically Presidential.
Politics have proven deadlier than Maria, for Carmen Yulin is too busy dashing between the eaves of obsequiousness to American anti-Trump forces.
