True intelligence creates awareness


– The first notion it produces is recognising the self


– The second notion, to ask the self a question


-This question: Why?


-The third notion, finding the answer


— The one immediately implied identifying purpose


– Man living on purpose as much as on a morsel of bread, a gulp of breath


– The difference that he can make the former up, compromising his true intelligence, and a greater tragedy than death.


– Off with Saviours and amulets.

The Death Of Certainty

The problem with fervent believers is they emulate the wrong God.


Either this or they mistake His identity.


Ramadan is when more Muslims kill more Muslims, constantly, massively, in an organised way, from Pakistan to Iraq and from Syria to Libya, than anybody else. Yet demand from the rest of us… that we respect them.


As for the others, if there were a Messiah and he was to come back, he would probably be considered a deeply suspicious character, and get shot a thousand times over.


So that Allah and Jehovah better stay home, they’re better off where they are, and leave self-righteous punishment to mankind, being so very, very good at it.


Though the smart at least entertain some doubts, when the primitives remain forever certain of what they’re doing: killing usually the easy way forward.


But forward, exactly…. where to?


And once the gods finally turn their back on all men, does doubt not mean life at last?


The best of all deals, probably?

Dinner at Seven

– Where are you going with that bomb, boy?


– Somebody insulted my dream!


– Are you going to kill them?


– Punish them severely, at least!


– What time will you be home?


– Around six, God willing!


– OK, we’ll eat at seven! Be careful!


– OK, Mom!

When strangers become overly inquisitive, I always tell them I’m a cilantropist.


-Oh, really? Through which endowment?


– The Coreander Foundation, I tell them modestly

Crushing Sand

Somebody referred to the Arabs’ primeval urge to crush opponents at will. Or at least the persistent attempt to do so, affirming they still haven’t learned from the fact that since at least one century, this conclusively worked nowhere. Not to call it an outright stupidity it at the very least demonstrates an astonishing lack of imagination and of understanding of the human spirit, now nearly everywhere touched by modernity, abandoning age-old apathy with gusto.


Compromise still forms no part of the Arab playbook and the crude reactions to initially peaceful opposition called forth by the horrible ignorance of Saddam, Khadafy and Assad, stand as a fulminating example of this assessment.


Of course once an innocent opposition has been slaughtered in the streets, there is no returning and proven to represent political or even physical suicide to the very ‘leader’ primitively favouring such approach.


Can’t murder your way out of a problem! Not even with modern weapons!


The Soviets, the Cambodians, the North-Koreans tried it by atomizing the population, but all it brought them was poverty and deprivation until the corpse of a nation was dead and barely moving.


The Caliphates that aren’t will all end up the same way, give or take a decade.


Those still in anachronical death throws.


For crushing sand, only gets one more… sand!

Death To Collectivity!

Nations where crowds rise and kill innocents on demand are ignorant and cruel, its masses capacitated by the narrowest of ideas promulgated by the smallest of minds.


Before a nation or a people can be successfully independent, individual independence must have taken place. The ability to form one’s own opinion and assessment, which used to start with freedom of the press but  in the perennial absence or control of same has now been superseded by satellites beaming objective fact, so becoming a brand new source of moral intelligence.

I told my kids that once they complete their education, they should go out and conquer the world.

And that by flattering cleverly, they’ll conquer.

That, in fact, flatulance is everything!!

For the Birds (II)

This what happens to me! A luminous idea strikes me, and people say I don’t know what I’m talking about

World Champ

I told my son to include in his CV that he is the reigning World Champion: Men’s 7 meter Free Style Swimming.

Companies always enquire about additional interests, experience, character building activities, competitiveness etc beyond  immediate qualifications.

“But Dad, I’m no swimming champ, I can’t do that!”

” Yes you can! Because all the others swim right by you at this point, but for those first 7 out of 200 meters you are World Champ, boy!”

” True, I wouldn’t be lying, not really, would I!”

What a kid! What a promise! I tell yah, in this world you gotta know how to swim!

That’s all.
