Contrarian Introspections.

“The darkest corners in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis…”
These lines attributed to Dante Alighieri an Italian philosopher of the medieval era, which I cannot independently verify, appear as preface in the captivating Dan Browns creation The Da Vinci code.
And if you were to try and undo that reservation and take a side if you will, you might very well end up on the opposite end of the spectrum, perhaps even more adverse – the hell on earth, as at least in my case, as the position I might take with my instinct and impulses might very well be interpreted as that of a contrarian, which I would then promptly try and blame on the times that we live in and the intricacies therein, with as much passion and perhaps much less impact than any a contrarian that was out there in our times-the late Cristopher Hitchens – whose shoes I wouldn’t and I shouldn’t fill however hard I may try.

Nevertheless in the times of fake news, some original thinking wouldn’t hurt and perhaps you need a fresh target too..
