A mess of contradictions …

 Anecdotal Evidence: `Warlike Thoughts and Fear and Smart'.

One sympathizes and is appalled. Bad manners can never be excused – though one is tempted. In a social world erected on mushy-headed sentiment, where the unspoken orthodoxies are self-serving cant, one quietly admires Smith’s brassiness. How often we’re tempted to shake our heads and – but we bite our tongues.
Very elegant prose, that.
