Wisdom from a Marxist

I don't know what they have to say,
It makes no difference anyway,
Whatever it is, I'm against it.
No matter what it is or who commenced it,
I'm against it.

Your proposition may be good,
But let's have one thing understood,
Whatever it is, I'm against it.
And even when you've changed it or condensed it,
I'm against it.

Groucho Marx


The attitude reminds me of more than a few people that I have met that are what Rabbi Soloveitchik used to call againstniks. "Don't be an againstnik," he once told a student.
