the von Neumann architecture

because of their bad coding practices.”

“Love is like breathing.
You cannot elect to fall in love.
It cannot be a conscious decision.”
“I always thought the quote
‘It is not enough to win.
All others must lose, too’

You must not love others, too.'”

when others do not do their job right.”
“The difference between driving
and driving in Athens, Greece
is like the difference between walking
and walking on a tight rope.”

try to teach them.
You will be more useful this way.”
“It is more important to teach students the things
they are not aware that they do not know,
than to teach them the things
they are aware that they do not know.
In the former case, you help them
not only to avoid costly mistakes,
but to also broaden their horizons.”
“Logic is the most disturbing and irrational
subject I have ever studied.”
“Kurt Goedel, Alonzo Church and Alan Turing are my only friends.
I do not want to have any other friends.
These three suffice.”
“Kurt Goedel was the greatest logician that ever lived.
Lewis Carroll was a close second.
Aristotle? He was a distant third, if at all.”

are the greatest sociologists the world has ever known.
Plato is pretty insignificant compared to them.”

the behavior of other countries’ criminals.”

I understand everyone but no one understands me.”
“The story of Jesus Christ
depicts what will happen to you,
if you are an ideologist.”
“They say that Jesus Christ was the first communist.
I disagree. I think that He was the first anarchist.
He challenged the authorities of His time
and He also did not suggest an alternative system
based on politics.”
“I view anarchy as the only political system
that can guarantee the elimination of disorder.”
“According to anarchism, all kinds of authority are harmful.
Although this is a real life fact, I was not aware of anyone
theoretically establishing why this is true.
That was until I figured it out:
All kinds of authority are harmful,
because they inhibit the entelechy of each and every living being.”

If you are not an anarchist, then you are not a good person.”

how to show those that know less than me
that they know less than me
and how to show those that do not know less than me
that they do not know less than me.”
“The most disgusting thing is when
ability, knowledge or talent
are not combined with ethics.”
“We live in an ‘upside-down’ society:
Bad people are powerful, good people are powerless.”
“There is a huge difference between democracy
and the dictatorship of majority,

groups of people forcing their opinions
upon other groups of people.”

“You must never fight for your rights.
You must always fight for the rights
of those less fortunate than you.”
“If you have something to offer, then offer it.
If you do not, then that is all right.
But do not ask for things.
Because, usually, those that ask for things
either do not deserve them,
or have no right asking for them priority-wise.
Usually, the voices of those that are in real need
are too weak to be heard”.
“An employee should have only one right,
that of resignation.
And this right should be
unequivocal and indefeasible.”

You ‘contribute’ to it.”
“I oppose Masons
not so much because of their secret conspiring gatherings
but because they conspire for their own well being
and not for the well being
of those less fortunate than they.”
“The anarchy symbol is a five pointed star disguised,
which denotes that Masons may have created
or infiltrated the anarchy movement
in order to control it for their own benefit.
Therefore, it serves no purpose whatsoever
to belong to any anarchy groups.
The same goes for many political parties,
environmental groups, etc.”
“It is not noble to be with the winning side,
and the reason is that
the world could not have just become a better place
all of the sudden.”

There you go!”

And yes, this is a political statement.”

nothing ever will.”
“As far as the judicial system is concerned,
I have to say one thing only,
which is what Jesus Christ said:
‘Let he who is without sin cast the first stone’.”

I have to say one thing only:

the Universe must be destroyed.”

is not the result of intelligent design,
all you have to do is visit a hospital.”
“I completely disagree with Ayn Rand
about her rejecting the ethic of altruism.
You must never do what is best for you.
You must never look after your best interest.
You exist to serve others and not yourself.
You have a moral obligation
only to others and not to yourself.
Your existence, especially in times of trouble,
is judged by the value others get from you.”

we are totally dependent and victims of our surroundings.
Motivational speakers want to convince you otherwise.”
“My main sociological belief is that
the whole should sacrifice themselves for the individual
and not the other way round.”

Hatred for the absence of truth,
hatred for injustice,
hatred for the bad things
that happen to good people.”
“In Plato’s cave,
there are people that understand
that some things are not right.
We have a place for these people.
We call it ‘prison’.”
“All prisoners are political prisoners,
because they were imprisoned for acting on their beliefs.”
“Bill Gates said: ‘Change the world, or go home’.
If he had instead said: ‘Change the world,
or go home and we will support you’,
he would have been someone I would admire.
Actually, since he did not say that,
he did not change the world all that much.

A poor person dies every day during his lifetime.”
Aikaterini Kalemis, my late mother.
“The way things have turned out
with Jews degenerating and controlling everything,
it is a devastating fact that
Neonazis, those human-looking monsters,
are mankind’s only hope.”
Theodoros Kalemis, my late father.
“For 2,000 years scholars held that
heavier objects fall faster than lighter ones,
partly because Aristotle couldn’t be bothered
to take 2 minutes to experiment.”
“I am an outspoken atheist, as every scientist should be.”
