On recent events

This has come down from old, Atula,
& not just from today:
they find fault with one
            who sits silent,
they find fault with one
            who speaks a great deal,
they find fault with one
            who measures his words.
There’s no one unfaulted in the world.

There never was,
            will be,
nor at present is found
anyone entirely faulted
or entirely praised.

– The Buddha (Dhammapada XVII : Anger)
