Unsilent Truth

That truth should be silent I had almost forgot.

Antony and Cleopatra,  Act 1, Scene 2

 

Ronn Neff is senior editor of The Last Ditch, identifier and pioneer analyst of Polite Totalitarianism, and author of many of TLD's foundational essays. He winces when Strakon calls him the libertarian Machiavelli, but it's true.

Unsilent Truth is his series of occasional observations, and from this point forward, tyrannical bullies, professional corruptionists, willful deceivers, and willing slaves might want to cover their ears.

Mr. Neff's own site, which I urge you to visit, is Thornwalker.
