“And so it began – the lies, small ones at first. That he and his cohorts planted in the most innocent, well-meaning of people. Whispers, asides, glances of doubt that made one question statements that were true.

He had been angry for so long that he could find that feeling in others – even before they consciously felt it in themselves: the man riding stoically in the wagon to yet another back-breaking, thankless day of work. The child looking longingly in the store window, wanting what he could not have. The woman, exhausted and weary from too many people wanting and taking too much from her and no one giving anything in return. These would be his people – the ones he could turn. The ones that he could convince were the victims, the righteous. He would build on the slight affront, the small frustration, until they believed that they had been wronged intentionally, that they deserved so much more. And that it was normal to hurt others to get what they wanted.

In this world that he was creating, he knew that it would not be survival of the fittest – it would be survival of the cruelest.” (from my writing of a short story, 2016, Michele Margittai)



Fél évszázaddal VH után… hogy elkezdett középkorba fordulni az a generáció, aki már nem látta a háborút, csak – nem – beszélt azokkal, akik megélték… az én generációm… jöhet a világvége.

Léha, tájékozatlan – azaz testben és elmében is lusta – és mint a (nem pécézek, csak példa) a dagadt emberek, akik hivalkodón rózsaszínre festik a hajuk, hogy nekem ez az egész így jól áll, ahelyett, hogy megpróbálnák megerőltetni maguk az egészségükért (ha már az esztétikusságért nem), még büszkék is rá.

A jólét, a megkérdőjelezhetetlen, próbatétel nélküli jólét nem való az embernek, elveszi az eszét, az a verzió, amit ma élünk demokráciából kinyírja magát: Brexit… no logical, only emotional explanations. That populist idiots can even come into perspective blows my mind, but only proves that people are lazy to look up facts for themselves, rely on intuition based on fleeting moments of speeches etc, rather than political programs, economical plans – oh those are hard to comprehend.

Meanwhile, maniacs become leaders in the most dangerous (not necessarily the strongest) states, like Russia, Turkey, …while the sane become insane in UK and US. Imwithher has to win. Has to, or the world will again draw closer to ww3. At least with her it would remain on the parallel track (same as now).

Brexit sidenote

I pray to God that the ruler of this country, hand in hand with her Parliament and with the eventual consent of their nation which is just now having its main round with biased populism will not go along with this farce on brecit. I’ve never seen a non-compliance with a national popular vote, I would be sad to, but I.consider it the only rational thing to do. People had no idea: Pride-and-Prejudice vs Sense-and-Sensibility.
