Surely some revelation is at hand.

For some reason, two lines from William Butler Yeats' poem "The Second Coming" have been rattling around in my head over these past few days:
The best lack all conviction, while the worst   
Are full of passionate intensity. 
To whom these lines apply, I know not, but Yeats said many things well. This is no exception.

You can read the whole poem here.
