We cannot meet it (the threat of dictatorship) if we turn this country into a wishy washy imitation of totalitarianism, where every man’s hand is out for pabulum and virile creativeness has given place to the patronizing favor of swollen bureaucracy.
A patronizing disposition always has its meaner side.
Cat: a pygmy lion who loves mice, hates dogs, and patronizes human beings.
The world likes humor, but it treats it patronizingly. It decorates its serious artists with laurel, and its wags with brussels sprouts.
