Enshrine Mediocrity
Have you ever taken part in a handwriting competition run by illiterates? Even after knowing that the judges don't like the fact that you know how to write? And that too beautifully?

Even if you know they'd admire a scrawl by a two-year old and render it a masterpiece against yours?

No, there's no doubt about how good your writing is, but would you still go ahead and participate when you know that they don't like to see you winning?

And you ask yourself why?

In Ayn Rand's words, "Enshrine mediocrity—and the shrines are razed."

Reasons are not far away.

Another quote by Ayn Rand goes "Mediocrity doesn't mean average intelligence, it means an average intelligence that resents and envies its betters."

Sorry for the long break. But I was a little caught up watching some Shrines being razed. Boy, mediocrity is in!
