1510 : All writers must die, and are whores !!

Am repeating this from my own post 149.

I find this passage very compelling, a very state of our mind today, and I relate to its sentiment completelty. A mirror to our modern world Sad smile

Baal said, "I've finished. Do what you want."
So he was sentenced to be beheaded, within the hour, and as soldiers manhandled him out of the tent towards the killing ground, he shouted over his shoulder: "Whores and writers, Mahound. We are the people you can't forgive."
Mahound replied, "Writers and whores. I see no difference here."

- SV, Salman Rushdie, Pg. 392
