Cults of Personality

I keep the Day By Day Cartoon strip at the top of my blog because it's funny and author Chris Muir slips in a fair amount of insight while he's doing the funny bits. However, the translation between and the cartoon server is less than ideal..and Sundays, the "big strip" tends to get clipped.

This one is a little to insightful to risk folks missing due to that clipping.

Personality cults, as Muir points out, never end well. And "but we're doing it HARDER this time" (or that timeless variant "BUT THIS IS DIFFERENT") somehow palls as an argument after sufficient tragic failures fill the killing fields.
