**********
ON PATRIOTISM
**********
The most patriotic Armenian is neither
the devout church-goer nor
the dedicated partisan
but an honest man.
*
If you can’t think of me as a critic
(someone who exposes contradictions)
think of me as the devil’s advocate.
As far as I know no one has ever identified
a devil’s advocate with the devil.
*
Where there is money there will be prostitution
in one form or another;
and where there is patriotism, there will be treason,
and more often than not it will the real traitors
who will accuse the real patriots of treason.
*
Armenians who criticize no one and nothing
(except perhaps Turks and Kurds)
will criticize critics and their favorite mode of criticism
will be slinging mud in the hope that some of it may stick.
*
Our critics – and we have had our share of them –
have made no difference in our collective existence
probably because our idiots outnumber the rest 99 to 1.
I may be wrong in this.
The correct ratio may well be 98 to 2.

Thanks for guesstimating my earlier question...My guess was 99 percent and I take no pleasure in being in the right ballpark...quite depressing really.

no Sadomasochist, he sees himself as an honest patriotic human being...not pretending to be the so-called first Christian Nation or Patriotic Armenian while stealing and extorting from his own.

Many Critics criticize those who DO what the critics can not . Envious bunch.
Many Critics are essentially non doers in fear of action...
Parasites who make a living out of judgement and slander.
Not all, but most of them.

so you prefer to be on the side of those in power (men of action)and against dissidents. pro-Stalin and anti-Solzhenitsyn! pro-rabbis and anti-Jesus. To each his own.

Is this a confession?...I think you have just described 98-99% of Armenians.

Why do you talk on his name ?
I think he is old enough to write alone.
No need someone else to talk for him , I think he will not like it also.

On the subject of our bosses, bishops, benefactors
and those who look up to them as political and spiritual leaders,
I will say what H.L. Mencken once said of Americans
and their democracy:
“The worship of jackals by jackasses.”

In your case we have to make an exception, since you are descendent of Genocide perpetrators. the 1% who destroyed the lives and roots of the 99%.
You get off for being the sneakyratus.

Do not project your tags on me, I am neither pro Stalinist nor anti Solzhenitsyn.
I tend to be Confucian and pro law and order.
One of the 99% who has worked hard to get ahead honestly and with well digested ethics.
I do believe that there is room for improvement, but I tend to have respect for all living beings in general.

Everybody alive today can be described in the same way...if you go back far enough in history..and 100 years is an eternity in the modern world..The very bottom line is that 98-99% of you TODAY have a bloodlust toward innocent people.

I guess people like you have to find justifications to inhumanity by diluting your thoughts with anesthetic hypothesis.
