by Charles G. Mills
June 19
, 2014

GLEN COVE, NY — In classic Greek tragedy, the protagonist is a good and decent man, but he has an inherent and fatal flaw (hamartia). He often succumbs to pride (hubris) through his belief in his own ability to correct the errors that result from his flawed nature, or perhaps his pride leads him into the errors. The result is his downfall (nemesis). This downward spiral also describes General Shinseki’s service as Secretary of Veterans’ Affairs.
