Steer clear


Steer clear of those all-pervading tribes of self-attested savants and omniscient soothsayers,

their politically correct and scrupulously edited homilies,

their dim-witted validation of great minds across spheres,

their belaboured broadcasts, brazenly thriving on borrowed wisdom, and,

their carbonated clarion calls, clamouring for attention and applause


Maintain safe distance and you'll find bliss that only ignorance can yield...

...as blessed as the vulnerable hemlock that found its antidote in the venerable Socrates

...as potent as the virile magic potion that only the virtuous druid Getafix was known to brew
