@QuasusPaul Atreides dixit:Nie wolno się bać. Strach zabija duszę. Strach to mała śmierć, a wielkie unicestwienie. Stawię mu czoło. Niechaj przejdzie po mnie i przeze mnie. A kiedy przejdzie, obrócę oko swej jaźni na jego drogę. Którędy przeszedł strach, tam nie ma nic. Jestem tylko ja.
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
On the subject of "Fear" - a remarkable film by Fassbinder (English subtitles)Frank Herbert's Dune (Polish version by Marek Marszał)

@Hemo Rusticus , (Herbert was buddist; I think the litany could have been inspired by Mahamrityunjaya Mantra?
ॐ त्र्य॑म्बकं यजामहे सु॒गन्धिं॑ पुष्टि॒वर्ध॑नम् ।
उ॒र्वा॒रु॒कमि॑व॒ बन्ध॑नान् मृ॒त्योर्मुक्षीय॒ मा ऽमृता॑त् ।
oṃ tryambakaṃ yajāmahe sugandhiṃ puṣṭi-vardhanam
urvārukam iva bandhanān mṛtyor mukṣīya mā 'mṛtāt
Ja nie czytał tej książki, а очень интересуюсь ею. Not a big surprise if that weirdo was into Buddhism.

This book is very interesting as it's about how the media (particularly blogs) distorts news. It goes in depth about the ways that what we read on many internet blogs (like Gawker, Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, etc.) are manipulated to get people to believe lies (hence, fake news). This is essentially the playbook for exploiting the media, which was written by a man who used to exploit the media.
I will never view blogging sites the same way ever again.
I've read numerous books like that. Interesting things really. The making of the state of Israel was pretty peculiar in my opinion.
I would say it was quite brutal. The Jews didn't have easy time in 1948 and had to fight tooth and nail for every inch of the land.The making of the state of Israel was pretty peculiar in my opinion.
In Poland there are mostly tourist trips oriented on visiting "Holy Land" and christian historical sites (Jerusalem, Nazareth, Bethleiem, facultativelly Masada and Dead Sea). The prices are ridiculously high.If it weren't so dangerous and so dear, I'd be tempted to spend a bit of time in Israel, but the way things are I'll observe from afar.
Just hire a Templar, bud. Their going rate is one Turkish lira per decapitation of an infidel. Can’t beat that.they do provide some security for the traveller.
Lot of Poles go to Croatia for holiday - beautiful country, friendly people, good wine, tasty cuisine,That's it in a nutshell. The Holy Land trips cost a fortune (I don't have). On the other hand, they do provide some security for the traveller. No, I'll stay put.
