Det här är låten i Frieds-reklamen, "The Story Of The Impossible" av och med Peter Von Poehl.
Sökte upp den på Youtube, och riktigt vacker ärenju. Som en skör ...fluffig vaniljbakelse. Kändes liksom ..."bloggbar".
The Story Of The Impossible
Apropå låt-titel, några intressanta i veckan publicerade citat (hjärndött hittat med sökmotor):
President of the British Royal Society, 1895: “Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible”. (Briggs)
Richard Dawkins: "It's almost impossible to say anything against Islam in this country because if you do you are accused of being racist or Islamophobic", och "Teachers are terribly frightened of being thought racist" (Daily Mail)
John Bolton: "The first [goal Iran is pursuing] -- to possess all the capabilities necessary for a deliverable nuclear weapon -- is now almost certainly impossible to stop diplomatically." (WSJ)
Alexander Solzjenitsyn: "However, in early democracies, as in the American democracy at the time of its birth, all individual human rights were granted because man is God's creature. That is, freedom was given to the individual conditionally, in the assumption of his constant religious responsibility. Such was the heritage of the preceding thousand years. Two hundred or even fifty years ago, it would have seemed quite impossible, in America, that an individual could be granted boundless freedom simply for the satisfaction of his instincts or whims. Subsequently, however, all such limitations were discarded everywhere in the West; a total liberation occurred from the moral heritage of Christian centuries with their great reserves of mercy and sacrifice. State systems were -- State systems were becoming increasingly and totally materialistic. The West ended up by truly enforcing human rights, sometimes even excessively, but man's sense of responsibility to God and society grew dimmer and dimmer." (NewsBuster)
Carl Mortished: "Britain has ... a hideous bureaucratic jungle, within which energy is a sub-unit. It took three official reports, reviews and white papers over three years to elicit even tentative support for nuclear power, even as business screamed about blackouts.
Meanwhile, the Blair windmill fanned support for costly renewables and impossible carbon reduction targets." (Times Online)
John Tierny ger La Scalas replik på Al Gore krav: "Whether your predictions for sea level rise are correct or not, it would be logistically impossible to end the opera by drowning the village under 20 feet of water." (NY Times)
Marc Vandersmissen, hjälparbeteskoordinator i Peru om ...global warming?: "Pastures have been covered in snow which has frozen over, making grazing impossible. Unable to find adequate food, the alpacas have become weak and susceptible to disease." (UN News Centre)
Raymond på Dhimmi Watch: "There is no need (not to mention it's impossible) to "bridge the chasm between Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists." They all have their specific beliefs -- which, more often than not, contradict with the beliefs of the other religions. That's fine. Each should adhere to their own beliefs while respecting the choice of other people to believe differently. The problem, of course, is when one of those belief systems -- now I'm not going to name any names -- mandates war against those who don't share its belief system."
Manchester-terrorn. Vem och varför?
