How many bureaucrats does it take to screw in a light bulb? One to spot the burned-out bulb, his supervisor to authorize a requisition, a requisition typist, twelve clerks to file the requisition copies, a mail clerk to deliver the requisition to the purchasing department, a purchasing agent to order the bulb, a clerk to forward the purchasing order, a clerk to mail-order a receiving clerk to receive the bulb … . . . See you next time, if we will not be in the dark 😉 .
Will David get his sling and fight the Goliath mob or will he too will succumb to the modern bullies? . . “That violence is not practical. If my fellow men believe that the force of the combined tonnage of their muscles is a practical means to rule me — let them learn the outcome of a contest in which there’s nothing but brute force on one side, and force ruled by a mind, on the other.” Ragnar Danneskjold – from Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. . . See you next time… if David will stand! .
This week I chose the print to express all my discomfort and rage. When we are facing communist destroyers, to react with beauty is not enough. I felt the need to express myself clearly. I’m pissed. I’m pissed at the ignorance in the world. I’m pissed at the people destroying symbols of freedom. I’m pissed at people destroying monuments and culture. I’m pissed at the silent people giving power to the destroying force of ignorance. I’m pissed at the people accepting with cowardice ignoble requests made with violence. We accepted without reacting properly when the Taliban destroyed the Bamiyan Buddhas. I was pissed then, and I’m pissed now that the same mentality is doing the same thing here. I’m pissed at people pretending I have an original sin just because they say so. Let me be clear: I do not accept the concept of an original sin and I do not support any group that uses violence and destroys the beauty in the world. . . . In front of this there is only a phrase coming to my mind: “Who is John Galt?” .
Another week, another airplane. Travel if we can, meet people and sadly becoming a collective crowd. . . If you are COVID afraid to travel by airplane, check here the video by Mentourpilot, I mention in my tale. Very informative! . . See you next time!
There are moments in history when we must very carefully chose our heroes. We have to be careful to not transform victims in heroes and vice-versa. Victims need to have justice, but heroes deserve to be remembered and be honored as examples for our lives. hero:1. a person who is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. victim:1. a person harmed, injured, or killed as a result of a crime, accident, or other event or action. If we confuse the terms and forget the values that make a person a hero, we will have more and more victims. To have no victims we need real heroes to follow. . . . If you want to read the great story of Placid Lassie, take a look at the Tunison Foundation website. See you next time! .
There are cameras that remained the preferred, no matter if other cameras were better with more options. For me the Pentax MX is that camera.I used many cameras and some of them gave the possibility to do more things than the MX, but still, when I take the MX in my hands and I hear the click, something gives me the desire to take pictures. . . See you soon with the Pentax LX!
A couple of days ago I was reading the news here in Italy and I read a title that made me think: “The USA cancel the 4th of July”. The fight against Covid is not just a medical fight but a political one. To make mistakes in communication at this moment is perhaps more dangerous in the long term than making medical mistakes. . . . See you the next time! .
