It was Simone de Beauvoir who famously said: “If you live long enough you’ll see that every victory turns into a defeat.”

This fatalistic trusism doesn’t stop me from trying to do things with good intent, but I keep it as a sobering reminder that good intent has a habit of being sublimated and then being turned on its head.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
