Easter

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

I seem to recall that some time ago somebody told me not to mix religion and politics, (or was it religion and wine?) but being not a great believer in either, I hope Francis will forgive me. It is Easter time, which means rabbits, eggs, chocolates, retail sales upturn, attacks on Christianity, i.e. the usual religious holidays in the so called Free West.

So I will disrespectfully commingle the old treachery and cowardice with the new; Swan, Judas, Rudd, Herod, Barnabas and Gillard, thought I could not find anybody alive even remotely resembling Jesus. Thus – Judas it is:

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
