More and Fisher
Their feast day was yesterday, the day on which Fisher was executed for treason. As always, I highly recommend the 1966 film A Man for All Seasons, as well as the play. Bolt (the author) was no Catholic, but he indeed realised that, as he writes, "I think that when statesmen forsake their own private conscience for the sake of their public duties, they lead their country by a short route to chaos."
