“Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are the dead.”
― Aldous Huxley
Huxley may have been referring to social behavior. Without much knowledge it is more challenging to be consistent since one hasn’t much to consist with. Physical laws are consistent in nature as is an orderly society and enforcment of civil rights if they are to be meaningful. Fascism was an outgrowth of romanticism and irrationality generally and there is far too much of that in U.S. leadership today. Excellence consistently promoted in fields of intellect and progresss require consistent effort.
