Willful Mediocrity

“The dishonor was not the in the confusion, but in the ritualistic character of that confusion; not in the appalling cultural, scientific, and historical ignorance, but in the refusal to mend that ignorance; not in the incompetence, but in the exaltation of that incompetence; not in the mediocrity of execution, but in the meanness of intention” [Bryan F. Griffin, Panic Among the Philistines (Chicago, Regnery Gateway, 1983), pp. 111.]
