Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters

Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters:

Dawkins and Hitchens and Harris and Dennett appointed themselves the
personal spokesmen for atheism with the “Four Horsemen” gambit. We all
know it was just a clever PR move, but you would not believe the number
of atheists who believe that that is some kind of official leadership
position. I see all these atheists wondering, after Hitchens died, who
was going to fill the position; I get people telling me all the time
that I was somehow hoping to one day be appointed to the exalted
tetrarchy; all I can say is that the “Four Horsemen” is what four
friends who met for a recorded conversation one day called themselves,
nothing more, but the hero-worshipping fan boys of atheism don’t seem to
realize that.

But sheep gotta have a shepherd, I guess, and the sheep who defy the shepherd are gonna get called mutton.
