LOL: No One's Accepting National Review's Newest Partial Apology So They Decide to Forgive Themselves Instead



National Review is tired of waiting for people to accept their begrudging, compelled apologies, so they're accepting their own apology now.

You're welcome.

Oh, and send them money.

"A fuller and more complicated picture emerged." Just so.

Is this Charles Cooke? The "just so" sounds like Charles Cooke, although, let's face it, a lot of them enjoy putting on British airs.

Jay Nordlinger is five minutes away from announcing that his pronouns are "Toffy-Nosed Ponce" and "British Pansy."

For an overheated few minutes, the world (meaning the world of people engaged in producing and consuming nanosecond-by-nanosecond commentary on the Internet) was rapt with revulsion at the sight of a group of smirking high-school boys -- Catholic-school students, some in red "Make America Great Again" caps -- menacing an older Native American man beating a drum as part of a protest in Washington, where the students were visiting as part of the annual March for Life. The condemnations were vitriolic, including here at National Review.

A word on the Nick Frankovich Corner post. As longtime readers know, the Corner is our group blog that encourages real-time, unfiltered reactions by our individual writers (it was basically Twitter before the advent of Twitter). There is always a peril in that. Occasionally, we'll get something hastily and spectacularly wrong. Nick was operating off the best version of events he had on Saturday night, and writing as a faithful Catholic and pro-lifer who has the highest expectations of his compatriots, not as a social-justice activist. As soon as better evidence emerged, we deleted the post.

He still has not apologized to the children he defamed. In fact -- I don't know this to be true, so I'll ask if it's true. People are saying in your own comments areas, National Review, that all through Sunday, Nicholas Frankovich continued doubling down on his condemnation if these schoolchildren, even as the facts proved, conclusively, that his slander was, well, slanderous.

Is that true? "IF TRUE," as you and leftwing friends like to say, it would explain why he pointedly refused to apologize for and retract the factual allegations he had stated and/or insinuated, and only begrudgingly, tersely, apologized to readers (not the parties actually defamed, but readers of the magazine) for a "preachy," "high-handed" tone.

So is that true? Is he continuing to double-down on his original slander? Was his non-apology forced by Lowry or Fowler? If so, why did you permit him that very obvious Clintonesque evasion? Why did you permit him to not apologize in an alleged "Apology" post?

Who are you hoping to fool? I know you think conservatives are idiots and easily conned -- your continued existence does in fact suggest that this belief might be at least partially well-founded -- but do you think we're that stupid to accept an OBVIOUS non-apology as an earnest apology?

Frankovich seeks forgiveness for his tone? Fair enough; I'm forgiving. I forgive him for his tone.

But he did not seek forgiveness for slandering children due to his vicious bigotry against any conservative who dares to wear a MAGA hat at a political rally (those little MONSTERS!), so I won't be forgiving him for that.

You don't get forgiven for things you haven't apologized for. Many of you make great pains to instruct us about how piously Christian you are (pardon me for doubting your Christianity, as Frankovich doubted the Christianity of the Registered Hat Offenders; lot of this going around).

So I'm sure you know that one can only forgive for what is actually confessed.

No one can or should forgive Frankovich -- or Lowry, for that matter -- for things they haven't actually confessed to.

In this business, all we can do is own up to mistakes when they happen.

It's all you can do, and yet you haven't actually done it yet.

We apologize to our readers and especially to the Covington students, who didn't need us piling on.

Is Frankovich apologizing? And are the students innocent? You say they didn't need you piling on, but guilty people also don't need people piling on.

Can we be forgiven for continuing to see an awful lot of hedging in your "apologies"?

What happened to them, unfortunately, is very familiar: The boys were vilified and threatened, while the partisans of what is cynically and inaccurately described as social justice began the work of hunting down the boys parents’'employers in the hopes of ruining those families economically.

It's very familiar, indeed. And yet Lowry and Frankovich fell for it. Again. Will they be explaining at any point why they are so prone to joining leftwing SJW lynch mobs, even though they concede this tactic is very "familiar" and therefore they really ought to have some innoculation against being infected by it in now the eighth year running of vicious leftwing social media lynch mobs?

Why do they continue falling for it?

Will they admit -- and ask for forgiveness, I suppose -- that they are so rabidly anti-Trump that the sight of a MAGA hat causes them to think very unreasoning, bigoted thoughts and assume that people are racist and deserving of scalp-hunting?

Or is that another thing they want to be forgiven for, without actually confessing?

The tone of the commentary was--well, here's how one writer for Vulture put it: "I just want these people to die. Simple as that. Every single one of them. And their parents." The students were, in this estimate, only "white slugs."

Hey, let's quote some of the commentary at National Review: The boys were "bullying," and "evil," and "evil" in such a way as to suggest the Roman soldiers crucifying Jesus Christ Himself.

Interesting that you go so far afield, to leftwing Vulture, to find such odious, vicious commentary when it is sitting right there on your computer as you write up this phony Third Time's a Charm excuse-making non-apology.

Because the culture wars are approached as a zero-sum game, many of the most committed progressives are now desperately trying to formulate a reason to continue slandering them and attempting to chase their parents into unemployment and penury.

And this was all obvious from the start.


And you helped.

Oh, right: Because you were foooooooled. Again.

But you're the smart ones, right?

That speaks to the sorry state of our democracy: Why bother trying to persuade or convince your fellow citizens when you can simply make them into pariahs?

I love the part in any non-apology where the non-apologizing person starts moving from "I was to blame" to "when you think about it, isn't Society really to blame here? Wouldn't you say there were Greater Social Forces acting on me that excuse my own behavior? Democracy,am I right?"

The Times, in articulating the "fuller picture," went so far as to suggest that to invoke the name of Donald Trump -- or to simply wear a hat bearing his famous slogan -- constitutes a "racially charged taunt."

Dan McLaughlin, one of your own writers, basically said that we're just going to have to live with this and there's nothing we can do about it. Sigh. Shoulder shrug.

Your buddy Ross Douthat said that these kids should not have been allowed to wear these political hats at a political rally.

A contributor of yours, the effete JeffB., sniffed that even wearing such hats to a rally was (sniff) "tasteless."

I find it very telling that you continue to try to locate the flaw in the left wing, rather than admitting it exists in just as virulent a form at National Review and its coterie.


These are not, for the most part, ideas offered in good faith: They are stratagems deployed to delegitimize certain political points of view. If supporters of the president are to be condemned as engaging in racial provocation for simply saying his name, then the conversation has nowhere to go.

All of this exposes a larger and more serious deficiency: in citizenship. Good citizens with proper respect for themselves, their neighbors, and their country do not seek to destroy the lives of a couple of teenagers in the pursuit of a transient and petty political advantage.

You are now turning what should be an apology for your own actions into yet another lecture about how we -- who didn't do anything wrong -- can improve our behavior.

I saw one of your interns, Xan DeSanctis, execute this exact same maneuver two days ago. She gets the story wrong and carries a torch for the lynch mob, then, when she finds out she's been "fooled" (by a story she desperately wanted to be true), she starts lecturing "journalists and commentators" about the need for "we" to do more fact checking.

I don't get this new Millennial/NPC trick of lecturing others in the midst of what is supposed to be an apology for your own sins.

And here's where we come to National Review forgiving itself, to spare you the bother of forgiving them:

Errors can be forgiven, and the occasional tendency to get carried away with rhetorical excess can be received with charity --especially by those of us who suffer from the same temptation from time to time. But political psychosis and deceit are something else. They can be forgiven only contingently --and never forgotten.

Are they actually forgiving the rest of the media for the exact same sins and false headlines and slanders that they themselves were equally guilty of?

And are we supposed to be so fucking stupid and that we're acutally intended to think, "Gee, if National Review can forgive the New York Times and Vulture for slandering and scalp-hunting children, I guess I should be a Good Christian Sap too and forgive National Review for doing the same exact fucking thing"?

Unbelievable.

Unbelievable.

By the way, once again, I'm allowed to post this in full because National Review has set a "You are allowed to plagiarize Ace without penalty" policy in place and I feel, naturally, this should work in both directions.

Update: Frankovich, who's a Real Journalist (just ask him!), put an awful lot of credence in the Narrative that Philips was not just an Indian, but a proud veteran of the Vietnam War.

Again, a little fact-checking would have been nice:

41 Washington Post trying to fix Phillips' story

"Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips served in the U.S. Marines from 1972 to 1976 but was never deployed to Vietnam."

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor

Question: If Frankovich is such an ardent pro-lifer, I'm wondering which candidate he supported in the last presidential election.

Was it the one who supported abortion until the last minute of the last day, and then maybe twenty minutes or an hour past that?

Or was he voting for spoiler candidates hoping that Hillary would win and then he could claim "Yeah, but I didn't actually vote for her"?

I'm wondering how committed to the pro-life cause Conservatism, Inc. actually is if it will gladly elect a rabidly pro-abortion candidate over personal pique that their Demands are being ignored by the Deplorables.

And I'm wondering how much people who aren't very pro-life, like myself, ought to fight for a cause that isn't even really our own given that the people who claim to be super-pro-life are so cavalier about putting a pro-abortion president into power?

Should I care about your issues more than you care about them, Alleged Conservatism, Inc. "Pro-Lifers"?

Blame-Shifting Case of the Passive Voice Detected:

54 The best part is the passive "the boys were vilified and threatened..." No active voice "We vilified the boys, and the boys were threatened." They bear no blame whatsoever for the school having to cancel classes.

68 You don't get forgiven for things you haven't apologized for. Many of you make great pains to instruct us about how piously Christian you are (pardon me for doubting your Christianity, as Frankovich doubted the Christianity of the Registered Hat Offenders; lot of this going around).

So I'm sure you know that one can only forgive for what is actually confessed.

No one can or should forgive Frankovich -- or Lowry, for that matter -- for things they haven't actually confessed to.



DING DING DING DING DING

Frankovich has still, to the best of my knowledge, never admitted fault, never admitted that he was wrong in his view of the situation, and has never apologized to the kids themselves for what he said.

And, since he's such a faithful Catholic, he made the comments about spitting on the cross with full and complete intention to call to mind the renunciation of faith.

He has not apologized for that.

I am trying to be the better person, and, Bander, you're right, that has never worked out for me, and be a bit more gracious about the editor's comments but maybe I'm wrong to do that. There needs to be both an actual apology and actual contrition and that I don't see anywhere.

As far as why keep going after NRO? Because the Left is a lost cause. It's those who claim to be on the Right who may still be salvaged.

Also, it always hurts worse when you are stabbed in the face by someone supposedly on your side.

We trusted you, Fredo.

91 What is interesting is that the world was "rapt with revulsion" at the thought that these boys were menacing a Native American during a protest. I agree. The world was rapt with revulsion.

But now that the real story is out, why is "the world" not "rapt with revulsion" at the thought of a Native American and a Black nationalist hate group (says SPLC) menacing these children during a visit to the capital of the country? Calling them faggots and "getting in their faces" at the explicit direction of former President Barack Obama.

Where is the rapt revulsion now that we know who the actual perpetrators are?

99 flt: 632 Why would people gather around a gas leak?

Free gas!"

Exactly! I did find a good write-up of the gas explosion story a couple days ago, and it pointed out (among other things) how average person in Mexico has nearly zero safety consciousness, not when there's money to be made. (And also how incompetent to non-existent basic safety systems are) The leak was in a large above-ground pipeline carrying gasoline - started off about the size of a water hose, people started lining up carrying buckets, empty milkjugs, anything they could find, they looked at it as free money.

Then one survivor said she saw a man trying to make the hole bigger with a crowbar, and soon there was a geyser of gasoline shooting 20' high in the air. Amazing part - this made more and more people start crowding in to get some! Many were seen to be stumbling around, effectively drunk from breathing the heavy gas fumes. and this went on almost ALL NIGHT! The police never did anything (if there even were any local police, never a sure thing in Mexico) and the Govm't (which owns the pipelines) promised to come out and get control of the situation - manana. More and more people kept crowding in, and not surprisingly, eventually there was a Spark. maybe from a motor, who knows, the only amazing thing was that it took so many hours for it to finally blow up.

Mexico is not like the United States. Mexicans do not think and act like we do.

"Forgiveness" for wishing death on a bunch of kids and their family based on a deliberate propaganda op is off the table.

So
is forgiveness for enabling that when it was so easily debunked with a
cursory effort. National Review isn't easily mislead - they're simply on
the other side.

These people can learn either learn to behave
themselves or make some manner of arrangement to be residents of some
other nation that doesn't include us. Those are the polite options, they
can take them or leave them.

Posted by: Yudhishthira's Dice at January 22, 2019 02:26 PM (ikSkO)

168 From the NRO comments:

Woefully inadequate. NR fails again. And again and again. So much losing.

1. You joined the rabid mob in denouncing in detail their behavior.

But their behavior was exemplary in the face of the malicious behavior of everyone else involved. You don't even come close to making an acceptable apology until you spell out, as you did their supposed "crimes," in detail their exemplary behavior.

2. You have materially harmed these students, their families, their classmates, and their communities by being part of the rabid mob who have incited criminal behavior toward them, up to and including credible death threats REQUIRING POLICE PROTECTION. You are not solely responsible for this crime, there are many other evil and doltish folks who joined with you. But you most certainly did your part! You are part of the problem.

The question becomes, what penance does Frankovich perform to atone for his crime? An Our Father and three Hail Marys won't cut it.

Putting aside, God forbid, that one of these children should be physically harmed or killed in part from the rabid mob Frankovich helped incite, think of the financial resources being expended by local police to protect these children.

Perhaps a worthy penance should be that Frankovich reimburse the local police for the children's protection, up to a year's compensation he derives from NR.

You people in media ask for special treatment. With that comes special responsibility. Failure to fulfill those responsibilities must have tangible costs, or this behavior will never cease.

Facebook's notion of "verifying" conservative speech would be disgusting under normal circumstances.

The left has trotted out all these alleged examples of pernicity and racism by the Catholic schoolboys, even going back years before they were even in the school.

See they are using the OK sign signifying white power at a game!!! (indicating 3 pointer)

See they are using blackface to mock the race of their opponents! (face painting at a sports event).

Basically they're demonstrating a rapturous contempt of a culture they know nothing about -- sporting culture -- with all the pompous glee of Judge Smails. It reeks with class warfare and contempt for those of lesser social status.

And of course there's the whole "I was a loser in school and I hate the jocks" bit.

maybe some kids were rude to an old leftie. He had to compare the old
leftie to Christ and the kids to Roman soldiers who were going to nail
him up. No pretend apology can repair that. These are the actual
thoughts inside Nick's brain. We all know that Nick intended the kids to
be a proxy for Trump. We all know that Nick is an SJW who fervently
believes that people guilty of wrongthink are fair game and get what
they deserve.

Right. its not that they had no reason to think something might be a problem based on the limited info they had. That's as far as they had to go: this looks like it might be bad, we'll wait til we get more info.

But no, it had to turn into a shark frenzy with everyone trying to top each other with how much they hate these kids, as if they were Emannuel Goldstein and they were worried they were being watched by Big Brother.

And speaking of Big Brother...

"The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself -- anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime, it was called."

236 Nick was operating off the best version of events he had on Saturday night, and writing as a faithful Catholic and pro-lifer who has the highest expectations of his compatriots, not as a social-justice activist.


The fact that the NR's bad, drunk writer decided to post the story immediately, in the middle of the night, while choosing to forego the most simple, mundane and necessary fact checking (including actually just watching the actual video) does not save him or the NR, it further establishes their liability.


The elements are simpLe: 1. A Defamatory statement. 2. That is published to a third party. 3. That the author knows OR SHOULD KNOW is false. 4. And that causes damage.

238 Chuck Todd was even weirder on TV than in his Tweet. Watched that 3 times and still have no idea what he was trying to say.

At a time when there's great distrust in our media, it's important to remember that we, the press, are the only ones held to account, so we always get it right, but we got this one wrong and that's bad because then the right will believe OrangeManBad and not let us vilify innocent children.

275 Yep, Ace, we've got to do a better job. An apology is not enough.

Our job, as intended by our principal funders, is to administer the poison of anti-Americanism and one-world globalism covered up with a lot of sugar and spice about pro-life nonsense and the need for e-verify and videos of my dogs chasing a ball.

We are supposed to be hard at work subtly discrediting the idea of the American people as a nation with their own country entitled to self-government serving their own interests and for their own benefit. America must be thought of as merely a proposition, which in the hands of casuists like me and Cap'n Bill, can be made into a proposition twisted and distorted to serve agendas directly contrary to the interests of American citizens.

And lately we haven't been doing a good job of that. For instance, we just stepped on our dick in a big way by putting ourselves in the front of the mob lynching the Covington Nazi Cossacks, instead of hanging back a little bit to let the mob find its footing first.

More than apologize, what we need to do is to get back to and focus on that one job we have.

Mea culpa, mea culpa!

Posted by: ace at January 22, 2019 02:31 PM (PbpT7)

Not at all. I don't believe in the genetic fallacy. It is a rebuttal to "maybe these stupid Christians will do what I want if I call them unChristian." It tends to circulate pretty heavily among the more irritating atheists.

As for my own personal feelings on the matter, my sins are more culpable for putting Jesus up on the cross than anyone's ancestors could have been. Calling any of my Jewish friends Christkiller would be spectacularly awful, but then they didn't categorize better men than I as Roman legionaries crucifying the Lord either.

336 Here's a stray thought:

It's hard, but possible to apologize to a friend, or a family member, when you royally dick something up and hurt their feelings somehow. Because ultimately, despite momentary anger or stupidity, you care about them.

It is damn near impossible to genuinely apologize to an enemy, because even if you hurt them inadvertently instead of purposefully, you find yourself simply not giving a fuck.

Excellent point re: pro-life NeverTrumpers.

I think Trump perfectly responded to the late-term abortion question vs. Hillary in the 3rd debate. For me, it was the best moment of the debate, maybe one of the best in the campaign re: taking back an issue that the Left had reliably owned for decades.

Hillary gave the canned PP talking points about talking with families who have struggled with it, who have had to make the tough decision blah blah blah. Trump just flinches at the thought of it and said something like "It's not right, it's just not right. I'm going to stop it." BOOM

It's been a wee while since I brushed up on the Catholic concepts related to forgiveness. This should be generic enough that any mainline Christian denomination would not find it overly objectionable.

Your contrition must be genuine.

It is helpful to admit what it was that you did, and were it was that you went wrong. (this is where you draw lessons from your mistakes)

You make amends and attempt to repair the damage done.

And you must ask forgiveness of the people you have trespassed against, if it is possible to speak to them.

Couldn't disagree more. If you have actually hurt people, not because you bore them malice but because you're on opposite sides and you have orders, apology and conciliation is just about necessary. The overly honorable rituals of chivalry, and later international treaty, evolved from this human impulse to make war less awful, not just for innocent non-combatants, but even for the vanquished.

Of course, the more the enemy succeeds -because- of your tolerance and charity, the more you hate them and the more horrific their individual punishment must become. Otherwise the punishment runs the risk of being extended collectively.

Native tribals are above native whites in the victim hierarchy, but well below favored proggy demographics. They have a deep connection to America in blood and soil. They demand autonomy and sovereignty over their land. Obviously this is particularly hateful to the left.

487 Rich, you've made our non-apology so let's just move on.

Soon enough, our "need" to defend for the benefit of our few conservative readers these disgusting MAGA-hat wearing racist and heretic Trumpkins will pass. Then, we'll stand in the wreckage of our own reputation with the Washington Post and The New York Times and CNN and ask ourselves, "Was it worth it?" The answer will be as clear then as it should be clear now. It's not, and it never was.

490 Instantly believing the lies of Satan is not exactly a mark of sincere Christian faith.

It certainly shows a great lack of judgment in someone whose very job involves discernment. I mean he's paid to be wise and judge things in the magazine and this is what he barfs out? One might even say he's unsuited for his position.

I watched Face/Off again the other day. I'd forgotten how bad that movie actually was. Travolta's performance was WAY too over the top.

Well he was trying to do Nicholas Cage, which is not an easy act to follow

I'm not joking when I say their crime was being white. Replace those white kids with kids of any other skin color. Just run it through your head. It wouldn't have happened. Let's ponder that.

578 "The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself -- anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime, it was called. But even more dangerous to the proles was hat-wear. Specifically caps. An entire department was devoted to approval of messages contained on them, and especially the color. Only neutral earth colors were likely to be approved. The color red was considered especially confrontational and likely to be rejected outright. There was a term for those who chose to were unapproved caps: hatcrime."

However, I am unable to differentiate a smirk from a smile in this case. He said he was trying to defuse the situation, in which case it wasn't a smirk, but it seems to be a bit problematic if we're going to condemn people merely based on their facial expression.

I do suggest he give it in the House, though. -Fucking dare- that dried up old prune to bar the POTUS from a public building. Would the SAA defend Pelosi at the risk of arrest, maybe something worse?

Good article, Dan. Is that your website?

I would add that when you list the people who pushed back, like Julie Kelly et al., you might include the guy from Reason, Robby Soave (I think) who as far as I know was one of, if not the, first to review the whole 2 hours of video and say hey there, hold on, this is not what people are saying it is.

737 Here's the reality as far as I can discern: The Elite Right view "conservatism" as essentially dead and they view themselves as caretakers(undertakers?) for that still-dangerous shambling corpse as it looks for a grave to die in so as to minimalize the harm it can do until it's safely buried.

I think they *used* to think that way. Now, though, I think they see that they were wrong about that and that the enemy (that is, us) is alive and well and has much stronger numbers than they imagined while they were masking it with people like McCain and Romney.

Now they are moving from "undertakers" - a role with which they were comfortable and well-suited - to "executioners" - a role for which they are ill-equipped.

The Left isn't that monolithic.

It seems like it because we're on the outside, but they have their own deep internal divisions.

We can haggle about whose are worse, but don't imagine that they don't have different constituencies that don't hate each other.

750 The Bishop of the Covington Diocese, Roger Joseph Foys, has not apologized either. Northern Kentucky is a hotbed of the 'Modernist' wing of the Roman Catholic Church. The people who campaign for LGBTQ rights. The President of Fortunate Families, Ed Buechel is an active member of the Diocese. Fortunate Families was founded in the Diocese of Lexington, next door, and the Bishop of Lexington, John Stowe, is their big promoter.
Probably why the MAGA hats set Foys off.

we did.But you can't hold a whole fraternity responsible for the
behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then
shouldn't we blame the whole fraternity system? And if the whole
fraternity system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our
educational institutions in general? I put it to you, Greg - isn't this
an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever

763 Here's the thing. I can't forgive the National Review or that twit for his column. Because they weren't attacks on me. I can forgive them for being incompetent journalists and failing in their job, but its the kids who have to forgive the NRO for what they did.

And being apparently good Christian boys, they probably already have forgiven the magazines, and everyone else. But there's a distinction here. You can forgive someone, but still require their punishment for their wrongdoing. If someone robs me, I can forgive them for what they did, but that doesn't make it no longer illegal. They still have to pay for their crime.

772 The unexpected election of Donald Trump has caused many people to drop their masks. These same people have never respected social conservatives and always took their votes for granted because what were social conservatives going to do? Vote for Barrack Obama or worse Hillary Clinton. Trump defeated eleven other republican candidates to win the presidential nomination. Unexpectedly! After being ridiculed by everyone in public except Ann Coulter, Donald Trump went on to win the election in a landslide. Sure Hillary racked up an extra five million votes in California but she still lost and Trump still won. For two years progressives and fake conservatives but have gone wild. Now sinking so low as to attack a bunch of 14 and 15 year olds. But then picking on somebody your own size is a masculine virtue and highly toxic to progressives and fake conservatives.

781 They don't want to represent, report, or write for the conservatives that exist, but the ones that reflect their own values. In order to feel justified in forcing other people to change their values, it helps if those other people are obviously wrong in a bad way.

I think that is why I tend to only write from the perspective of incentives. Once you think about what all the involved parties stand to gain and lose, all sorts of hazy motivations and reasonable expectation about success and failure all become clear.

Joe, good response - and yes they were VERY surprised by Trump and one reason they hate him so very much is that he gave the corpse another jolt to keep moving. It's an unnecessary, dangerous and ultimately futile delay of the inevitable according to their lights.
