8 comments on “Nobody ever stopped History with prosecutions, imprisonments and restrictions – Article by N. G. Michaloliakos

    • Excellent honest and clarified article from the Secretary General.

      There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation has a rendezvous with destiny and History.
      From our side as Greek Hellines and citizens of this great Nation, we have as a result observed and realized that the democratic principles which we hold dear have suffered a lot, consequently for the future generations we are indebted to keep in alert are Mind and memory and feed our reason and the future books of History with the proper ingredients of the truly events.

      The famous Al. Lamartine, “Dictator” of France in 1848, in his “Essay on the Manner of Writing History for the People” said:

      “If you desire to mold the opinion of the masses, to rescue them from the immoral doctrine of success….do what has never been done before – GIVE A CONSCIENCE TO HISTORY.
      By treating your theme in this spirit, you will win less popularity*…you will not fire the passions*..or the imaginations of the people, but you will render a thousand times better service to their cause, their interests and their reason. Teach them by facts, by events, by the hidden meaning of those great historic dramas ( of which we perceive only the scenery and the actors….while their plots are contrived by a HIDDEN HAND ) to know, to judge, and to moderate themselves.
      Make them capable of distinguishing those, who serve them from those, who mislead them, those who dazzle from those who enlighten them.
      Point to every great man and great event, and say: Weigh them for yourselves, not with the false weighs of your transient passions, your prejudices, your anger, your national vanity, your narrow patriotism, but by the Universal Conscience of the human race, and by the utility of each act for the cause of civilization”.

      I will call the “true present” as being the moment that the light left the page.
      I will call the “perceived present” as being the moment that you perceive the page and its meaning in your mind. The difference in time between the two events is very small; a fraction of a second, but understanding that this difference exists changes everything.

      And unfortunately as the great Emerson have said:

      “The most unpleasant truth in the long run is the far safer traveling companion than the most agreeable falsehood”
