If the Romans had been obliged to learn Latin, they would never have found time to conquer the world.”   —   Heinrich Heine

(LOL!  I guess it’s not the easiest language to learn.  You’d think that it could help in learning French, Spanish and Italian.  And, Portuguese too.  But, it’s considered a “dead language” because no country speaks it anymore.  Other than some in the Catholic church, and scientific classifications it’s rarely seen.   I can barely speak my own language.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Our first Heine quotation since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Many of you may think that the Nazis invented book burning.  Oh, no.  This heinous act – libricide – goes back thousands of years.  Almost as long as Man has been using parchment.  Probably longer, when you consider some sort of Philistine-like people smashing clay and stone tablets.  Obviously, not the same as “burning”, but the end result is the destruction of the written word.  The silencing of ideas.  It’s a grand gesture of intimidation and intolerance to politically incorrect thinking.  It’s about oppression and control.  Don’t rationalize, or be blasé about government – and corporate – censorship.  Fight it.  “Do not smile at the visionary who anticipates the same revolution in the realm of the visible as has taken place in the spiritual. Thought precedes action as lightning precedes thunder.”  That’s right, Mr. Heine.  Keep opening those minds.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
