ON POPULARITY
*****************************
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.

SOURCES OF OUR DECLINE
& DEGENERATION
*****************************************
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.”
