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

Democracy does not solve problems;
it only enhanced our awareness of them
and the inadequacy of all politically motivated solutions.
Popularity and prostitution share much more than their first letter.
To cling to infantile illusions is more rewarding
than to confront the Unknown and the Unknowable.
Hence the popularity of organized religions.
No regime can survive without majority support
provided we keep in mind that
there are two kinds of supporters:
those who support a regime out of ignorance and fear,
and those who kiss its ass
because it promises to be good to them.

Fornicating bishops sermonizing on chastity,
blind men parading as men of vision,
perennial losers speechifying on future victories…
After depopulating the land,
they promote tourism
on the grounds that tourists
are a source of income.
By contrast, the poor and the unemployed
are a drain on the economy.
I remember the words of an elder statesman:
“Some of the most important players in our communities
are not Armenian but Turks who speak Armenian fluently.”
