First

I first encountered this sage advice 50 years ago in a college lit class.

Content thyself to be obscurely good.
When vice prevails and impious men bear sway,                                                             The post of honor is a private station.                  Joseph Addison

Nothing in 50 years has persuaded me to the contrary.
