On Coming To Grips With Futility

In Taki's Magazine today there's an essay by Theodore Dalrymple titled "Mankind Is Stuffed".

That's hardly the most propitious essay title I've ever encountered, but the piece turns out to be oddly heartening.

To briefly summarize Mr. Dalrymple's theme, the idea is that most of what you and I and everyone else on God's Earth desires and does is pointless and futile, so get over it and get on with it; it's what we have.
