“Defenceless = unable to attack.” (Ambrose Bierce, 1842-1914, The Devil’s Dictionary): Actually we watch Israel and Iran, India, North Korea, Syria, if they are overwhelmed by the attitude to attack. “Stop!” usually says the UN. But individuals? Abused children or women, teenagers attacked by gangs, adults in their jobs, the “Occupy Wallstreet” movement – isn’t it necessary to resist sometimes? Of course better than to use a sword is: to leave the bad situation with a laughter, ignoring consistently what could disturb us …
there were kings
photo by “evje calling”, Norway, she comments: “in Stavanger, Norway, at the coast, there has been a battle by 3 kings in the year 872. To remember this, they placed 3 huge swords.
I just read in the “Devil’s Dictionary” (Ambrose Bierce): “WALL STREET = A symbol of sin for every devil to rebuke. That Wall Street is a den of thieves is a belief that serves every unsuccessful thief in place of a hope in Heaven…”
more of that stuff, actually related to the “OCCUPY WALL STREET” movement in USA
(though written hundred years ago by Ambrose Bierce!!! Here it is):
“RIOT = A popular entertainment given to the police and the military by innocent bystanders.”
