Always Double Down On 11?

Architect of Donald Trump’s refugee ban, Stephen Miller, said this over the weekend in response to the eruption of resistance that ban has touched off since it was announced Friday:

“Any time you do anything hugely successful that challenges the failed orthodoxy, you’re going to see protests. In fact, if nobody’s disagreeing with what you’re doing, then you’re probably not doing anything that really matters in the scheme of things.”

If nobody’s disagreeing with what you’re doing, then you’re probably not doing anything that really matters.

Or, as I’ve said in this space before–quoting Andrew Macintosh from tech support on a classic episode of The West Wing–“If they’re shooting at you, you know you’re doing something right.”

Now might be a good time to say, “Maybe not always.”

You don’t always double down on 11. 

It’s not always true that if they’re shooting at you you’re doing something right or that disagreement is a sign that what you’re doing really matters.

Rules don’t always apply, do they? Even the rule about rules not always applying.
