Ladies and gentleman, I’m just popping in here to remind everyone that TPTB are trying to make all nice with us now that they realize they’ve been thoroughly routed…just as we all knew they would (see, e.g., here).
Forgiveness is a strong component of our superior, noble nature. But we must always remember: we got here because our tendency towards clemency has been used against us. We get attacked, we fight back, they cower and play nice, we forgive, then they lie in wait until they can attack again until slowly, steadily, we are bled to death.
This happens no more. There can be no more forgiveness, no more clemency. Everyone who gave any comfort to the enemy must be held to account, and in the harshest possible terms. We cannot forget this as the years wear on and our future finally starts to brighten again. As we grow more optimistic about things, our anger will subside. But our memories of the evil that brought us to this point cannot. We must never forget the nature of the evil that has nearly–and yet might still!–destroy us for good.
In short: Never forget to never forgive. No quarter for these effing bastids.
