The idea of a small circle, of an exalted and loyal sect, except with a traitor infiltrated at its core, an informant who’s not foreign to the sect, but constitutes an essential part of its structure—this was the true organizational form of any small society.

Ah, starry Hope! that didst arise
But to be overcast!
A voice from out the Future cries,
“On! on!” – but o’er the Past
(Dim gulf!) my spirit hovering lies
Mute, motionless, aghast.

policies that must stop.
