There are less than a handful of weekly blogs that I regularly follow for the wisdom and wit that I perceive in their writings. This post, unlike my previous one which was a day or two late in catching up with the latest offering from one of those blogs, comes only hours after the latest release of The Archdruid Report, the musings of John Michael Greer who until recently was Grand Archdruid of the Ancient Order of Druids in America and is now the current head of the Druidic Order of the Golden Dawn (neither of which organisations I owe any allegiance to or agree with any of their precepts, rules, beliefs, or whatever (what people do in their spare time is entirely up to them)).
The Archdruid Report this week, I am sure quite uncoincidentally, also (as with my previous post) deals with the matter of the 2016 US Elections, with a piece titled The Decline and Fall of Hillary Clinton which I have again chosen to quote as the title of this post.
Now, a word of warning before I recommend this blog post for general reading, it is not for everyone. While James Howard Kunstler, to whose work I referred in my previous post, occasionally introduces an obscure word or two that would not be found in normal everyday speech, his wit and writing style render reading of his work a pleasant, amusing and interesting experience. This cannot always be said of Greer’s pieces. The wit is almost always drier, even cutting at times. The language is painstakingly and ritually obtuse, though making complete sense if one is able to follow it all the way through lengthy, complex, overly flowery and winding sentence construction (similar to my own at times).
Having said that, I do generally like what he has to say, or at least find the subject interesting to plough my way through to the end. It is up to you. I offer this link, with those recommendations, because it does offer a perspective and certain insights on the subject and people in question. A subject the outcome of which will affect all of us in some measure. I am not going to offer any commentary on the piece because, well, I find that prospect quite daunting. Here is the link again: The Decline and Fall of Hillary Clinton
