Come back, Tom Disch, all is forgiven

In 1979, Thomas Disch wrote a science fiction novel called On Wings of Song. It was set in a future America ruled by intolerant right-wing Christian fundamentalists blind to any argument but theirs and belligerently refusing all compromise with anyone who just happened to disagree with them. When I read it, I thought such a future could never happen.

Boy, was I wrong.

Ve'al kulam eloha s'lichot,
s'lach lanu, m'chal lanu, kaper lanu.
