Thutiem Hlen Le Hlen Lo (Promise Fulfilled & Unfulfilled)


Political promises are much like marriage vows.
They are made at the beginning of the relationship between
candidate and voter, but are quickly forgotten.

– Dick Gregory

Inthlang Vuokvétah


Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy,
and the most aggravated form of tyranny and
slavery out of the most extreme liberty.

Look not mournfully into the past,

There is a destiny that makes us brothers,
None goes his way alone;
All that we send into the lives of others
Come back into our own.

Demonetization & Demonization


Confusion heard his voice,
and wild uproar Stood ruled,
stood vast infinitude confined;
Till at his second bidding darkness fled,
Light shone, and order from disorder sprung.

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin

and philosophers and divines.
