There is nothing so despicable as a secret society that is based upon religious prejudice and that will attempt to defeat a man because of his religion. -William Howard Taft, 27th US president (1857-1930)

O Irony! O villainy! O nether-worldly knavery! Where is thy blush?! Taft himself, slimy not-so-little Skull & Bonesman that he was, belonged to a cabal embodying the very evils he pretends to condemn, viz., despicableness, secrecy, religious prejudice and political intrigue. Worse, the version he espoused enjoyed, and still enjoys, enthusiastic backing by the territorial monopolist we call the State. Let me then raise my eyes to Heaven (religious prejudice!) even as I invoke the pagan Juvenal in all his anarchical loathing, "Who will protect us from our protectors?"!
