Can’t depend on the IVOR

The Who – Won’t Get Fooled Again

Today’s Quote: “Yes, I’m sorry I did it.” — AOL co-founder Steve Case seeks absolution for the merger with Time Warner. (It probably seemed like a good idea at the time.)

The Irrational Voice of Reason is a poor substitute for Jiminy Cricket. For one thing, the IVOR is easily intimidated. For another, I suspect he actually enjoys being bound and gagged. Resistance is futile. Resisting temptation does not make you morally stronger. The more you resist, the more it erodes your resolve. It is far better not to face temptation at all or simply walk away when it presents itself. Walking away is much easier if you already possess moral strength.

I have once again escaped the pull of the Dark Side but it will call again. When it does, I am determined to offer no resistance and simply walk away.
