Reviewing my Cohencentric site, I came across this Leonard Cohen quotation:
I do love Canada, just because it isn’t America and I have, I suppose, foolish dreams about Canada. I believe it could somehow avoid American mistakes, and it could really be that country that becomes a noble country, not a powerful country1
And I realized that, for some of us at least, “noble’ is the priority now.
