“In the morning, when you find yourself loathe to rise,” the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius wrote, “Have this thought at hand: It is to the work of a man that I arise. Shall I be annoyed to set about the work for which I was born, and for which I was brought into the world?”
What exactly the work of a man is, of course, has been a hot question ever since—and never more so than in our own era. Over at Trumpist site American Greatness, Wayne Isaac has a suggestion: the work of a man is to fearlessly and indefatigably trigger the libs.
The catalyst for Isaac’s piece is the Lincoln Memorial incident that took place last weekend, involving a group of MAGA-hatted Kentucky Catholic school kids, a handful of members of the radical Black Israelites sect, and Native American activist Nathan Phillips.
