Pierce Leithouse

Pierce LeithousePeople think it was the
way the town leaders demonized my
daughter that led me to
defect to the other party and
lead them to drive out my
former friends. And it’s true that the switch
happened then. But more than
pride or fatherly protectiveness
was behind it. It struck
me, suddenly, that people who crave
power over others
in the name of security and
order, are truly just
interested in power for its
own sake. And that power,
once ceded, can never be reclaimed.
And I saw my part in
constructing an architecture of
coercion. I felt called
upon to repent and make amends.
