Why You Shouldn’t Speak Ill Of The Dead 💀

You sound like Trump. Or at least Trump-adjacent.

It’s not the best reason, but it’s good for right now.


  1. For me it depends on who is dead. If someone did great evil in their life I don't have any problem with pointing that out. We're all dead in the end, honest history would be impossible if we never spoke ill of them.

    1. It’s a time thing. I read a good article on Powell, from My Lai through his UN WMD presentation. Harshly critical, but factual.

      Eventually history will find a place for Powell. But just now, there should be a break and a respite. He was a public figure. His family deserves the space.
