True Americans


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.

    About one half of Americans prefers Hilary, Weinstein, North Korea… in other words corruption, sleaze, dictatorship… Don’t rely on Trump to fix the mess.

  2. Doom Day says:

    What can one do with a nation so easily fooled by so meaningless slogan as ‘Yes we can’?

  3. Gromore says:

    Americans ought to be ashamed of themselves. Free speach only for those pining for the whip.
