The late, great LtCol Jeff Cooper, one of my personal heroes, nailed the Baton Rouge (and Dallas) shooting back in the waning days of 1999, when he was speaking of the fate of the Boers under the ANC regime–

Cui bono? I know who doesn’t bono, that’s for damn sure. Think long and hard about that. Feeling fundamentally transformed, anyone?

Oh, and from the same Commentary as the quote above, another bit of perspicacity from the great man:

Well here we go into the last year of the millennium. Things do not look good for the human race. Honesty, decency and liberty are in decline, while street crime, academic perversion and bad taste are on the rise. Still, the guns, the cars and the wines may be expected to remain on the unprecedented high level they now enjoy, so be of good cheer for the New Year!

I’m not sure I share the last sentiment, but the previous sentence is dead-on.

Best get ready, eh?
