Charlie Pierce:

There is a reason why Dante consigned to the vestibule of hell those people who maintain neutrality in times of moral crisis. They neither enter hell nor deserve heaven, as Virgil explains to the poet he is guiding.

These have no longer any hope of death;

And this blind life of theirs is so debased,

They envious are of every other fate.

No fame of them the world permits to be;

Misericord and Justice both disdain them.

Let us not speak of them, but look, and pass.”

After the past month, hell’s going to need a bigger vestibule.
