VANDALS
*****************************
Whenever we read about classic works
of Greek literature we are told most of them
have been lost. What we are not told is that
they were destroyed by Christians.
What a book one could write
on Christian vandalism!
*
If our ruling classes support
education, literature, and choral singing
it’s because even under the most brutal regimes
liars and entertainers have been amply rewarded.
*
To those who promote
a wait-and-hope-for-the-best attitude,
I ask: Isn’t that what we have been doing
for more than a thousand years?
*
The fewer the words
the greater the number of implications.

ON BEING BORN AGAIN
************************************
As a man I was born again on the day
I gave up all hope of fame and fortune
and decided to be an honest witness.
*
Do you know of any country
whose rate of emigration is over 50%?
*
To those who accuse me of being anti-Armenian
I ask: Is the Bible anti-Armenian when it says
“A house divided against itself cannot stand”
or “If the blind lead the blind…”
*
We are told we need solutions
provided we don’t state the problem.
Figure that one out if you can.
*
One reason most of our writers
emphasize the positive and
cover up the negative is that
they are afraid to lose
a fraction of their brainwashed readers.
*
There are no good guys and bad guys
among the 1% — only bad crooks and worse crooks.
