“And here we are, poised between the two, between a dreadful reality and an unformed terror, trying to make such decisions as will avoid the tyranny of the very far right and the tyranny of the very far left, the two of which can often be seen coalescing into a tyranny pure and simple, with no qualifying adjective in front of it all.”
— Ray Bradbury, 1953
Notice the year that Bradbury wrote that.
Either nothing has changed, or what goes around comes around.
Or: Is “What goes around, comes around” another way of saying “Nothing has changed”?
