"Sic semper evello mortem tyrannis"

"Why do doctors begin by practising on the credulity of their patients with so many false promises of a cure, if not to call the powers of the imagination to the aid of their fraudulent concoctions?” Michel Montaigne
 
"The basic feature of the scam involves diagnosing the victim with some sort of secret problem that only the grifter can detect or diagnose,
and then charging the mark for ineffectual treatments
....
These scams continue into the present day..."
 
 
"A "Justiça" é facilmente politizável", Juíz Carlos Fraga...o antigo juiz, que foi punido pelo CSM, diz ainda que os juízes estão mais preocupados com a carreira do que com a Justiça e “não vão afrontar o sistema”, porque “têm medo” das consequências."

"As MIL e uma noites"

"Há livros de que apenas é preciso provar, outros que têm de se devorar, outros, enfim, mas são poucos, que se tornam indispensáveis,
por assim dizer, mastigar e digerir" Bacon.
"Uma alegoria...diz-se b para significar a...
 não precisa ser expressa no texto escrito...pode dirigir-se aos olhos...
vai da simples comparação da metáfora à sátira"

"Sic semper evello mortem tyrannis"


"...porque a razão dita e prova a experiência que é um
 moral impossível que se tiranizem povos iluminados...
para estabelecer no lugar delas uma crassa ignorância comum......."
Jesuítas e Inquisição, cumplicidades e confrontações, Jose franco, Célia tavares, editora sinais de fogo
