I’d like you to meet a friend. His name was Albert Pike, and he knew how to live!
Generally, people seem to react to Albert Pike in one of three ways. One group (which usually has not read Pike) says “Ah, Pike!” and then assumes a pose of silent rapture, supposedly at Pike’s overwhelming greatness but actually so no one can ask them anything about him.
The second, larger group says, “Uck, Pike!” and then stomps off. They haven’t read Pike either, but everyone’s told them he’s too hard to understand, so why try?
The third group HAS read Pike, and they say, “Wow! What a man!”
