Special places in hell

I don’t usually discuss politics these days. But I was intrigued when White House trade advisor Peter Navarro started a criticism of the Canadian Prime Minister with the words “There is a special place in hell.”

I’m surprised that hell would care about something as mundane as a political speech. One would think that the Eternal Place of Torment operates on a different plane entirely.

Yet suppose the statement is true, and hell actually does care about what people say in their political pronouncements. Does that mean there is a special place in hell for people who make political statements that begin with the words “there is a special place in hell?”

Interesting question, but I feel I need to tread with caution here. What if there is a special place in hell for people who say there is a special place in hell for people who make political statements that begin with the words “there is a special place in hell.”

It may be safer if we avoid the topic entirely. After all, we might stumble upon this special place in hell for people who discuss the recursive nature of special places in hell.

    There is a special place in hell for those who comment on blog posts about”special place in hell”. No good comes out of infinite recursion with infinite arrangements of arguments. Unless you are programming in Scheme. Everything seems to make sense then.

    Suppose the “special place in hell” has a nice climate, a beachfront view, and great restaurants nearby? Maybe the “special place” is just a lot nicer than regular hell.

    In Scheme, people go to hell just for closure. :-)

    Yes, I’ve read somewhere that you can get an upgrade with a beachfront view, but there’s a hell of a wait.
