Gabriel García Márquez (Gabo) 1927-2014
Theory of mind, ability (inability) to feel what the other feels.
Even the big ones (marquez) as the small ones come and go.
Yes, I mean you.
You know who you are.
In fifty years, none of us, in all likelihood, is here on earth.
So why so much arrogance?
Why so much ignorance?
Why so much exercise of power?
Why so much pride?
Why so much idiocy?
Why so much attack?
So much bitterness
The big ones have come and gone.
The little ones have also come and gone.
You and I are not exempt.
Who do you think you are?
So why so much idiocy?

He saw him every morning who was sitting on a piece of cardboard, slumped in multiple layers of grayish and dirty clothes outside Liljeholmens subway station.
He did not look at people. He could not raise his eyes and observe passersby. Then he raised his eyes he looked people with empty eyes. He looked sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes revenge hungry, sometimes murderous. He looked particularly forlorn. He seemed as old as him.
Every time he bent over his plastic bowl to throw down some coin he thought: what a fucking scam I am earning thousands of dollars each month and donate a few bucks for these street beggars who often are the same age as me who do not have, unlike me, a chance for a decent life.
VIOLENCE BEGETS VIOLENCE,
Gospel of Mattew, verse 26:52 / Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I was not even happy when I saw the clips when Gaddafi was captured and killed later. I smiled not even inside. It was a sad day for me. However, I am glad that a madman is gone from power.
Violence begets violence. He and his henchmen had murdered thousands of dissident Libyans and damaged the country for several decades.
Violence begets violence, but there is nothing to rejoice over.
The slowdown has started for those who kept a WORLD in captivity for decades.
The slowdown has started for those who kept a COUNTRY (Iran) in captivity for decades.
The slowdown has started for those who kept a NATION in captivity for decades.
The slowdown has started for those who kept a RELIGION in captivity for decades.
The slowdown has started for those who kept THEMSELVES in captivity for ever.

I do not remember how many times I got a lump in my throat and could not speak after the massacre in Norway. The pain had been enormously after the senseless conduct performed by a human being who killed many innocent human beings.
I often think that this world disgusts me and the feeling becomes even stronger when innocent people in for example Norway, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia or the United States lose their lives. ”Man is the wildest animal on the planet,” is another phrase I use often. But the ability to love again and see the joy in eg child´s eyes allows me to come back and love life again and not lose hope for a better world.
That is why I have posted happy videos of my daughter on the internet when life seemed unbearable. One way to deal with the pain.
A beautiful rose to each of the innocents who lost their lives in Oslo and Utöya.
The people of Libya were protesting for a living and a dignified life. All they wanted was a better life.
He attacked his own people with heavy fighter jets and battle tanks, killing thousands of them without concern. And
the people – the dissatisfied, the poor and the young -defended themselves with simple weapons.
Now it’s his turn to taste the heavy artillery attacks by the world community to know how it feels to be at a disadvantage.
The international community has once again taken its responsibility to defend a people from the violence of a madman who forcibly appointed himself to the leader.
Although United Nations – Convention came a little late but better late than never.
It is so obvious that Iran is trying to make an atomic bomb, nothing else. But the problem is that Irans´ nuclear facilities are extremely dangerous to Iranian people before they are to the rest of the world. Why?
We know by facts that Russia for years is selling Iran its old and potentially dangerous military equipments including nuclear materials, short and long distance robots, diesel submarines and other war machines that Russia had in its military service more than fifty years ego. It just makes me laugh that for example these submarines and old war materials can cause any potential danger let´s say for American forces or American presence in the region. American forces can neutralize Iran´s military forces without any bigger attempt, as they did it with Iraqi military war machine. It is the same with Iran´s nuclear facilities in Natanz and Qom. There is no structured supervision on those facilities if something goes wrong, as it is the same almost with all Iranian activities. That is why we can not see in principle any progress in any area of effort, planning and implementing by Iranian Islamic regim. We know again by facts that Iran buys any military product from the international black market that it can buy and we could see during the Iran-Iraq war that many of those products were not of the best qualities and that was for example a reason that many cargo planes and strike aircrafts crashed during the war and it is happening even now. One could see many times that soldiers´ handguns in the battlefield did not work which caused probably the death of thousands of them.
As president Obama put it lately: “Iran has right to nuclear energy.” No one is disagreeing with it. But Iran´s attempt to make a nuclear bomb makes this country more dangerous to its own people, countries in the region and even to the rest of the world. If Iranian delegation in United Nations were not a bunch of liars they could have a transparency policy about their nuclear facilities and they could receive help and equipments from the international communities in order to build these nuclear facilities with modern standards without causing any potential danger to Iranian people in the first place.
The thing is that they do not want to have a healthy relationship neither with the international community nor with their own people because they know very much that they got the power by deception, killing, raping and so on. If Iranian regime wanted to win the Iranian hearts and gain an international respect and recognition they could redo the election, this time with the supervision of international observers and show both the opposition/Green movement and the world that Ahamdinejad received 64 percent of the votes. But everybody knows that these people are a bunch of criminals that take advantage of Islam and making the life of Iranian people like hell in this “material world”, promising them to be in paradise in an afterlife of “holy world”, while they are living a life in this material and fatal world which is alike the one they are promising the people of Iran after their death.
One of the main concern and priorities of Green movement must be giving Iranian people information and clarifying for them that a rusty and old nuclear facility and making an atomic bomb by buying almost out of order and out of used materials from the European black market, mainly from Russia and former Soviet Union republics for billions of dollars making Iranian people just poorer and it´s bedding for a mass killing, a disaster.
