One-Liner Wednesday — Politics and Hatred

“Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organization of hatreds.”

Henry Adams, American historian, descended from two U.S. Presidents

Henry Adams died in 1918, and I find that this quote from him was incredibly prescient, given when he said it. It’s certainly an accurate reflection of the hatred displayed in politics in America today.

And if that isn’t controversial enough for you, let me suggest that if you were to substitute the word “religion” for the word “politics,” the statement is equally as true.
