Nothing is so easy as to deceive oneself; for what we wish, we readily believe.
And what an excellent example of just that we can see unfolding even as we speak - world class idiot Jan Guillou trying to explain away what is in fact high treason. I am deeply disgusted by these events. I don't believe in capital punishment, but I do feel that in certain situations, high treason can and must be punished that severely. No, I'm not at all advocating that for Guillou. Certainly not. But what he has done, be it however many years ago, is what it is, and I find it absolutely repulsive that he can even think of trying to make light of it as he is doing. He is a traitor to his country. I already knew that he's an idiot on a number of levels, and that he's a complete & total attention whore who will do & say pretty much anything to get in the papers. But this is unbelievably low. To do what he's done is bad enough. But to pretend that it's no big deal ... ??
Jan Guillou has committed high treason and is not even man enough to admit to it. Disgraceful in every way.
