This morning’s piece for Times And Seasons was a tough one to write. I wrestled with it for about 3 of 4 hours before getting it into shape that I thought was good enough for public consumption, but just barely. I think there are too many different themes poking out in odd directions, giving the piece a sort of misshapen, rough texture. I’ll revisit it one day.
In the meantime, however, I think there’s still some interesting points about the difference between being exactly obedient and being maliciously compliant.
