“When my tomb is left unnoticed and my memory is forgotten, Oh, then I am dead.” Poet Bedros Tourian

To brag and to bray:
Two four-letter words that share three letters in common.
In our environment and culture
dissent is out, kissing ass in.
Homo politicus:
Compulsive liars in search of dupes.
Am I right in suspecting some of my critics
miss the good old days under Stalin?
A ruthless enemy should teach us t
o be thorough, not bloodthirsty
Don’t say “I know better.”
Let your knowledge speak for itself.
Facts become facts only after
they have been misunderstood,
misrepresented and classified.

Nationalist historians lie
because it is in their job description.
The same applies to phony pundits
whose job consists in adopting
a clearly defined propaganda line.
Deviate an inch and you are out.
Both nationalist historians and pundits
pretend to speak the truth, the whole truth
and nothing but… They also pretend
not to be unaware of the fact that
to be human and to speak or,
for that matter, to know the truth
are mutually exclusive concepts.
If free will is such a valuable concept,
why is it that we will be deprived of it
in heaven?
