Okay, my brilliant noggin has thus far formulated two mighty aphoristic theorems, Covington's Paradox and Covington's Corollary.
Covington's Paradox is: "The Cause is so right; the people in it are so wrong."
Covington's Corollary is: "Just because the people in it are so wrong, doesn't mean that the Cause is not right."
Now these two bits of eccentric Covingtonian brilliance are joined by a third: Covington's Conundrum, which goes something like this:
"The System is designed to PREVENT the very thing we are trying to accomplish. Why, then, do we persist in attempting to work within the System?"
