Two widely held views on Canada by Canadians:
“This country was founded on Christian values.”
“Canada is ours: we stole it from the Indians fair and square.”
It makes no difference whether you cut a writer's tongue out or you silence him.
Neither does it make any difference whether you kill him or you ignore him.
The result will be the same.
Q: Do you believe Jesus was the son of God?
A: Aren't we all? We don't say “Our stepFather who art in heaven,” or “Our Father-in-law...” We say “Our Father...”
Q: Do you believe He rose from the dead?
A: I believe he never died. All gods are immortal. They don't die. That's a rule without exceptions.
Q: How do you explain American academics who deny the Genocide?
A: Promise an academic a regular salary and he will deny his own existence.
Q: What about Jews who deny the Genocide?
A: Jews don't, Israeli politicians do, and politicians have no principles, only interests.
“A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious, but it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly, but the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. “
—Marcus Tullius Cicero, 42 BC

Advertisements and propaganda
appeal to our lowest instincts
and they thrive on repetition.
Do I repeat myself?
Why shouldn't I?
If repetition works for the devil,
it can work for Jesus,
which is what Martin Luther said
when he adapted drinking songs to church hymns.
To subscribe to a belief system
means to reject all others
as aberrations, deviations and heresies.
To say I am against criticism
is also criticism.
Because I write against prejudice,
I am accused of being prejudiced.
Because I write against subservience and ignorance,
I am accused of both transgressions.
The offspring of perennial victims,
I am accused of being on the side of victimizers.
Because I refuse to be a dupe,
I am told I am a dupe of enemy propaganda.
I call this type of criticism
tit-for-tat, senile, or infantile criticism.
What is the biggest Armenian lie?
That Armenians are honest.
What is the dumbest Armenian lie?
That Armenians are smart.

If you have irrefutable evidence that suggests I am wrong,
then I must be wrong and I plead guilty as charged.
If, on the other hand, your evidence is based
on hearsay, propaganda, or a belief system,
then I suggest it is suspect
and therefore inadmissible.
Belief systems are infallible only to their dupes.
Knowledge based on propaganda
(and the favorite medium of all belief systems is propaganda )
is worse than ignorance.
When belief systems speak in terms of certainties,
they lie. And because they lie,
we have heresies, holy wars, and jihads
all of which operate like licenses
to commit crimes against humanity
in the name of an idol parading as God Almighty.
In a biography of Churchill I read today that
one of his favorite mottoes when in trouble was:
KBO = Keep Buggering On.
Perhaps that’s what I have been doing all along too
but didn’t know what to call it.
