-  <para>I woke up in the morning and went to the post. It was a bright day at the beginning of spring. When I walked down the road that leads to the post, I enjoyed the lively green of the field, before the summer shows its marks. Flowers bloomed there in the colors of white, yellow and violet and I could hear the squeak of the birds that resided on the trees and woke up before morning. Drops of dew shined on the shrubs and flowers, and the ground was still moist from the rain that had fallen there a day before. The sun just began to shine and in the sky there was a war between the light-blue shade brought by the sun and the dark red of the night.</para>

   <para>In my opinion, it was a perfect day to launch missiles at the Enemy’s soldiers. However, that was not what I intended to do that day.</para>
   <para>As I came near the post, I saw from afar that two of my comrades were oiling one of the mortars that were in the possession of my post. They were so busy that they did not notice me until they heard me say “Good Morning.” to them.</para>
   <para>“Good morning, the Member of the Organisation.”, they replied while turning to see me. “How’s it going?”, added one of them.</para>
   <para>“Good bye to you too.”</para>
   <para> And so I went to look for a job at the village’s grocery. I had to stand in line and when my turn cam the grocer said to me: “Good day to you! We don’t see you around here often since you joined the Organisation.”</para>
   <para>“Actually, I quit this very day. I was wondering if you have any job for me.”</para>
-  <para>“Thanks to your wonderful organisation I don’t. Do you remember that, three weeks ago, the post next to the neighboring village tried to fire a missile at one of the Enemy’s posts but instead it hit this grocery store by accident? The missile ruined half of the ceiling and reaped a large hole in the west wall. The renovations here cost me a fortune, and although I could really use some help here, I really don’t have the money for a worker’s wage. Maybe some other time.”</para>

   <para>“That does it!”, I thought to myself.

   <para>If your business is in bad shape, try to find out what you didn’t do well and don’t blame someone else. This excuse is non-factual, not to the point, inconsistent and simply unconvincing. Even a bad politician would not have used an excuse like that.</para>
   <para>Even if you had a job to offer me, I wouldn’t agree to work for you. Have a good day. Maybe I’ll come back in the evening, hear from you what happened to you today, and then I’ll be able give you another ten excuses why your financial state is bad recently. And believe me that all of them will be better than the one you gave me this instant!”</para>

-  <para>The flight lasted only two hours, and the airplane landed at an airport near the capital city of the Supporter. A car of the Supporter’s army waited for me there, and it drove me to the chief headquarters of the military. On the way, I had the chance to watch the view around the car.</para>
-  <para>The Supporter Country belongs to the same part of the world as my country, but because they have an even greater talent of causing the other part of the world to hate them, I realized that the economical state of things I saw outside the car was even worse than that of my country.

Poverty and hunger were seen almost everywhere.</para>
   <para>After a while, the car stopped in front of the headquarters’ building, and then they instructed me to exit the car. Two soldiers entered the building with me, and led me through several corridors until I arrived at a door that opened to a room. Inside the room was a long and large-size table, and around it sat senior officers as well as a number of men wearing civil clothes. At the head of the table sat a very senior officer with a stern and grave appearance. I assumed it was the head of the department of external security, who sent me the telegram. The soldiers sat me in a seat far from him, and then left the room and locked the door. It was probably a confidential meeting.</para>
   <para>After a few seconds, the senior officer started to speak: “I’m glad you agreed to come here, the ex-Member, because at the moment, we find ourselves in a very grave situation because of you. For years, the Organisation has operated with an extraordinary efficiency and methodology. As a matter of fact, it was one of our most efficient weapons for venting our anger against the Enemy. But now, you, you alone, have cast a heavy shadow on its future. </para>
   <para>I’m afraid that unless you find a way to work around your proposal, then the results will be catastrophic: not only for the Organisation but for all our other projects around the world, that are a model for harmfully and irrationally unloading bad feelings. Moreover, I’m afraid the proposal you suggested would have some consequences to our very reign here!</para>
   <para>“Certainly.” And he ordered one of the other officers to fetch me their law-book. I opened the book and saw that the first act read as follows: </para>
   <para>“1. The assumption that ‘A is A and that A is not not-A’ is not necessarily true. (or maybe untrue)”</para>
   <para>“Why can’t you change the law-book?” I asked him.</para>
-  <para>“Because then we will have to accept the fact that there’s morality in the world. Then, according to the forbidden books No. 34 and 139, which are evil and unholy writings, but correct in every word, we would be unable to kill people unless for self-defense. It is hard for me to believe that the Enemy will independently attack the Organisation’s soldiers, if it knows that they have no intention to independently attack it.”</para>

   <para>“I understand. But if I study the writings you mentioned, I believe I can find there something that will allow such action, because I have an extraordinary talent to find faults in a written material. In fact, I contemplated becoming a lawyer, but I eventually preferred to join the Organisation. It was more satisfying to do so.”</para>
   <para>“From the mental aspect?”, one of the less prominent officers asked me.</para>
   <para>“No, from the physical aspect. I caused more damage this way.”</para>
   <para>“Yes.”</para>
   <para>“Okay, that sounds rather nice, I’ll call you later and tell you what I decided about it. Good bye.”</para>
   <para>I hanged up the phone and called the next network on the list.</para>
-  <para>“Hello, this is the ex-Member of the Organisation, you contacted me so I’ll give you an interview, and I’d like to inquire about the size of your offer.”</para>
+  <para>“Hello, this is the ex-Member of the Organisation, you contacted me so I’ll give you an interview, and I’d like to enquire about the size of your offer.”</para>
   <para>“Ahha.”</para>
   <para>“O.K. Maybe you’d like to know that the other company offered me more money.”</para>
   <para>“Yes. Roughly this amount.”</para>
   <para>“How much?”</para>
   <para>“Hmmm. Doesn’t sound bad. I’ll call you later to let you know of my decision.”</para>
   <para>I called the third company and again received a better offer. Then I called the first company again and told them about the proposal of the third company. As I expected, they gave me an even better offer.</para>
-  <para>And so I went on, for a day and a half, with short discussions with an increasing number of large media networks, and I kept receiving increasing offers of payment for an exclusive interview. In my opinion, it was very sincere of me to tell each company about the offers I received from the others, but for some reason, they didn’t sound too enthusiastic when they realized I was doing it on a regular basis. </para>

   <para>“Sir, your offer sounds very tempting. In fact, it’s almost as tempting as another offer, which I received a couple of hours ago. Wait a second, are you saying that you have a better offer? Really? Yes, it does sound better. Just give me half-an-hour to consider it. Yes. Yes. Goodbye to you too.”</para>
   <para>And a few minutes later: “Hello, Madam! I’m glad that I was finely able to reach you. You won’t believe it but I was this close to accepting your offer when the telephone rang, and I was offered an even better one. I’m sorry, but it’s really nothing personal. Really? Let’s see, in comparison to the other offer it’s…”</para>
   <para>Anyway, I eventually got tired of this multi-sided negotiation, and decided to take the most attractive offer up to then. This offer included a very large amount of money, even relative to what people of the other part of the world are used to. Moreover, it included a flight to one of the big cities there, and an accommodation at a five star hotel, at the expense of the media company of course. There I had to be interviewed at an evening show of one of the most famous hosts in the other part of this world. This was a host of whom I was particularly fond. The main reason for that was that I had never seen any of her shows and so did not change my initial opinion.</para>
   <chapter xml:id="star_is_born">
       <info><title>A Star is Born. Maybe.</title></info>
   <para>The flight that lasted 11 hours exhausted me completely and I was glad that they took me straight to the hotel, where I fell asleep right after lying on the bed. After I woke up at a late hour of the morning, I ordered breakfast, and then decided to go on a half tour-half shopping spree in the city. Even though I was supposed to get most of the money only after the interview, I had a good amount of money that was given to me in advance. The show for which I was going to be interviewed, was scheduled for that night, and I understood that I had very little time for touring and shopping.</para>
-  <para>The tour of the city was very interesting, and I was able to see wealth and luxury that I never had a chance to see, at least not since the time I was a little boy, before my country was torn by guerilla organisations such as the Organisation. The luxury of the hotel was also way beyond what I was used to in my house, but I was sure that in the other part of the world, most people could not afford themselves such luxury in their houses either.</para>

   <para>The time passed very quickly and it was time for the interview. Two hours before it was held, they drove me in a limousine to the company's studios' building, where the show was shot live. I was brought to the make-up and dressing room where I was fit clothes, had make-up applied to my face, and was prepared the show.</para>
   <para>In the middle of the applying the make-up, the make-up lady asked me: “Do you feel like you're ready for the interview?”</para>
   <para>“I think so.”, I told her.</para>
   <para>“Yes. Definitely.”</para>
   <para>“That's all for now, Doctor. I ask you to stay here in the studio to receive our next guest, which many of the viewers waited to see the interview with him impatiently. This is a man who is frighteningly logical. A man, whose actions have implications on the whole world. A media hero, that a week ago no one knew who he was. Is he a hero for a moment, or has a new star been born in the skies of the world's politics?</para>
   <para>Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the ex-Member of the Organisation!!”</para>
-  <para>This was my cue to come in, and so I entered the studio to the tempered claps of the audience that sat there. I advanced towards the interviewer, greeted the people who were present, and shook the interviewe's hand and the hand of the physicist. Right after that, I sat down in the vacant chair next to the physicist. And then the interview began.</para>

I advanced towards the interviewer, greeted the people who were present, and shook the interviewer's hand and the hand of the physicist. Right after that, I sat down in the vacant chair next to the physicist. And then the interview began.</para>
   <para>The interviewer waited for the end of the hand-clapping, while moving her gaze from the audience in the studio to the physicist and me. After silence prevailed, she looked towards me and said: “The ex-Member, I must say we are very happy to have you here on our show. Tell me: how do you feel here, in the other part of the world?”</para>
   <para>“Excellent. The conditions are much more comfortable than what I'm usually used to.” I answered.</para>
   <para>“Very well. ”, she said, “Please tell us a bit about your service in the Organisation? How did you feel back then?”</para>
   <para>“An excellent question, Madam. There is, probably, some activity against the Occupier's army, but it is much limited and doesn't receive as much media coverage. Furthermore, it is a lot easier to fight the enemy, because the Organisation receives the support of the Supporter and the acceptance of the Occupier. Moreover, the Enemy's country, as opposed to the Occupier's country, is a free country, and therefore is committed to behave in a moral manner, even towards the members of the Organisation, that are, out of self-definition, immoral.</para>
   <para>If those reasons are not enough, then since the beginning of the Occupier's occupation, there have been peace in our country, which was disturbed only by the activity in the southern border. The civilians are happy that there's peace at last, and so they don't really mind that the country is under foreign occupation.</para>
   <para>In my opinion, even if we had all the reasons to fight the Occupier, then like the man who looks under the light of a street-light for a coin he lost in the dark, we would have still preferred to fight the Enemy. It's much more convenient, and still satisfying.”</para>
-  <para>“In that case, ", the physicist sai,d "from what I understood from what you said, the war against the Enemy doesn't bring your country much good, and it would be better better if you did not fight it at all.”</para>
+  <para>“In that case, ", the physicist said ,d "from what I understood from what you said, the war against the Enemy doesn't bring your country much good, and it would be better better if you did not fight it at all.”</para>
   <para>“Definitely Not!” I replied to him vigorously “The very fact that it would be better to fight the Occupier, doesn't mean that fighting the Enemy, even tough it isn't beneficial for us in the long run, or even the short run, is useless.”</para>
   <para>“O.K., we could say you cleared that point.” The interviewer said and continued, “Several forces in the Enemy's country suggest that the Enemy's army will retreat from the security-zone that they hold at the moment in the south of your country, and will try to protect their civilians only from within their sovereign territory. This action might stop the fighting between the Enemy and the Organisation, because the Organisation reasons the continuation of the fighting in that it does it to liberate that territory. </para>
   <para>Yet, the Supporter's country despises the Enemy, not because he hurt your people or holds part of your country, but out of ideological motives. Therefore, its interest is that the fighting against the Enemy will not be stopped at all. Moreover, even for the Occupier, the withdrawal from that territory will not change anything, and it will still want the fighting to go on.</para>
   <para>Undoubtedly, this was also a very good question. I thought about it a little and replied: “Look, it's not a small dilemma. On the one hand, it would be more difficult for them to get support for the actions from the civilians, unless they will manipulate the desire for revenge on the Enemy's past crimes. Still, both the Supporter and the Occupier, which now sanction the aggressive activity of the Organisation, will want the Organisation to keep on fighting out of their own motives.</para>
   <para>As you may well remember, I met with those who are responsible on the Organisation's activity in the Supporter's government and I concluded that except for the fact that they reject Aristotle's Organum, they are very reasonable people. Therefore, I am forecasting that in such a case, they will take the reasonable decision. For people who reject the Organum, of course.”</para>
   <para>“That is, will continue to fight the Enemy?”, the physicist asked.</para>
-  <para>“Or vise versa. When the Organum is rejected, it's hard to know.”</para>
+  <para>“Or vice versa. When the Organum is rejected, it's difficult to tell.”</para>
   <para>“I'd like to ask the ex-Member a question.”, the physicist said.</para>
   <para>“Please do.”, the interviewer said to him.</para>
   <para>“Some of the actions of the Organisation were followed by bombardments of the air force of the Enemy's military, which were, at times, even very massive. These bombardments sometimes caused civilians of your people to get hurt. The Organisation knew in advance that such bombardments could come as response to its activity, and yet didn't stop it. In your opinion, can one say that the Organisation is responsible in killing its own people?”</para>

   <para>The Limousine drove me back to the hotel and there I went to sleep, after barely taking off my clothes. I slept a lot that night. When I woke up in the morning it was already Ten O'clock, and I decided to order a small breakfast to my room. The flight back home was only due in the evening, so I had plenty of time; usually I would have used the opportunity to continue my tour of the metropolis, but the interview and the preparations for it exhausted me physically and mentally.</para>
   <para>Therefore I decided to stay in my room and watch television. I was happy for the chance to see so many series at once, something that was not usually possible in the village. When I saw sitcoms I decided that I'll keep trying to guess what the next punch-line would be. All in all, I was successful in 23.3 percent of the times. Not bad for a beginner.</para>
-  <para>Eventually I got tired of watching television and I went down to the hotel's lobby. While I sat there I thought about the book I was going to write about everything that happened to me. I started planning the style in which I would write it, how I'll negotiate with the publisher, how much money I should demand as an initial offer, and what circulation it would have. But then I realized something: despite the fact that I am one of the men who had the most enormous effect on worldwide politics in the last few years, if not in the last few decades, it wouldn't be probable that my book would be very successful. First, I wouldn't be able to describe many events in it, because the majority of the readers would not want me to describe the period in which I served in the Organisation. Moreover, I came to a realisation that there is another aspect of the affair which I did not cover yet.</para>
-  <para>Therfore I reached the conclusion that in order for the book to succeed, I must visit the Enemy's country. I realised that I also have a patriotic motive to do this, because I could integrate the collection of important intelligence information about the Enemy, into the visit. So, I rose from my seat, went out of the hotel, ordered a cab and went to the Enemy's embassy.</para>

   <para>I entered the embassy, and the way embassies are I had to stand in line in order to talk with the clerk. After I waited in line for about half an hour, I managed to speak with her at last, and declared my desire to visit the Enemy's country. She gave me a form and asked me to fill in my details. I carried the from to a table, took out a pen from the pocket of my shirt and started to fill the form. In my opinion, it was a very inefficient form, and a practically unnecessary one. Judge for yourself:</para>

   <para>“Family Name:”, in this field I wrote: “The family of the ex-Member of the Organisation”.</para>

   <para>“For instance under 'Sex' you were supposed to write if you're a male or a female.”</para>
   <para>“And I thought it meant a biological species. The name of this field mislead me. In my opinion, you should change it to 'sexual status' or 'sexual tendency'.”</para>

   <para>“All right. Goodbye.”</para>
   <para>“Goodbye to you too and thanks for your help.”</para>
   <para>I went back to the hotel, and extended my stay (out of my own packet this time) - it was hard to know how long they will consider if to let me in the Enemy's country. I decided to continue my tour of the city, and returned to the hotel only in the evening. Afterwards, I was informed at the reception that I got a message from the Enemy's embassy which informed me that I was allowed to enter the Enemy's country.</para>
-  <para>So I went the other day's morning to the Embassy and filled all the other necessary forms. After the visit to the Embassy, I managed to order one of the last tickets to a flight that left that very evening.

   <para>After I landed in the airport, I reserved a hotel room in one of the main cities in the Enemy's country and took a cab that went there. On the way I was able to see the view around, and despite the closeness to my country, it was much different from what was known to me. I'm not talking about the climate - the country was simply more developed. The economy of the Enemy's country is far from being perfect, but it is still considered to be one of the countries of the other part of the world.</para>
   <para>After I got up in the morning, and started to tour it (with a direct intention to gather intelligence information), I noticed that the atmosphere there was not much different from what I remembered in my country. However, it bothered me that all the people I asked accepted Aristotle's Organum without a doubt. I assumed that that what would happen, but I hope the publication of my book will change this fact even there.</para>
   <para>It was in the middle of that day when a black car stopped next to me and a man that wore sun-glasses came out from the seat next to the driver's seats. He said to me in a thick voice: “The ex-Member of the Organisation, in order to prevent unpleasantness, please enter and sit at the back seat of the car.”</para>

       <info><title>With Enemies Like This, Who Needs Friends?</title></info>
   <para>After the interview with the intelligence agency, I decided to continue my tour of the Enemy's country with the emphasis on collecting important intelligence information in indirect means. I started my intelligence work in a visit I conducted the next day's morning in one of the water parks of the country. I always wanted to visit a place like that and to amuse myself in it, and I assumed I can conduct some serious espionage over there. I continued with guided tours in the main cities and in the ancient cities, a visit to the theme park, and meals at fancy restaurants. One of the most dangerous espionage missions I took was a guided tour for expert hikers that included cliff-hanging. Of course the rest of the tourists that participated in the tour could have done the same intelligence work I did, but they were not aware of the great intelligence potential that it had.</para>
   <para>After I completed all those missions, I possessed a large amount of intelligence information about the Enemy. The only fact that could shadow the success of my mission was that that information was not substantially different from the information I had before I visited its country. In any case, all those missions exhausted me and I decided to continue in the tour in a less intensive pace. As a result, I decided that I would just tour the cities of the country in my own pace, without a defined cause.</para>
-  <para>So, I had the opportunity of visiting various places, most of which were completely mundane for the locals, but still pretty interesting for a stranger. Thus, for instance, I was present in a political assembly of one of the country's political parties. I saw the leader of the party give his speech to the loud voice of the encouragement calls of those present. I decided to try my mathematical skills in calculating the sum of the independent opinions of those present in the crowd, but even I realized that it was hard for me to work with such low numbers. After I had to change the digital precision three times during the calculation of the sum of the first ten independent opinions, I realised it would be too hard for me.</para>

   <para>However, I managed to make it up to myself on this failure during that tour. Two days after that, I stumbled into one of the universities there and noticed a sign that announced a large gathering that took place there that day: “'Out of the north an evil shall open' - a symposium regarding the political status between us and the Occupier and the Country”. I decided it was something I had to be present in, and therefore I immediately bought a ticket for that and went into the lecturing hall.</para>
   <para>I noticed that one of the lectures was already in session and the professor who lectured was just explaining why the present situation made it difficult on signing a normalisation treaty between the Enemy and the Occupier. I found a vacant seat and sat there. To my side, sat a young man that wrote notes in a notebook he held in his hand. I assumed he was a student. After a few minutes he turned his look towards me and then his face enlightened from surprise. “Wait a second,” he said “You look familiar. Are you by any chance a famous person? Wait a second, aren't you the ex-Member of the Organisation?”</para>
   <para>“The answer to the first question is 'Yes'.”</para>
   <para>Another issue that should be discussed is how much the members of the Organisation are willing to endanger themselves in their struggle against the Enemy. That same person, who is in my opinion one of the most influential men today, tends to say: 'A fearful and senseless person can take actions that only the bravest person will take, but he usually does not understand why he is taking them.'. Imagine a group of members of the Organisation who infiltrate the Enemy's lines in the hope of killing its soldiers. Such infiltration would be presented as fanatical by you and as full of courage by the Organisation itself. However, it should be remembered that behind every such ´fanatical´ action there is a hierarchy of commanders and sub-commanders, a line of comrades that support and encourage, a whole lot of national and ´ideological´ preachers who give flaming speeches against the Enemy (even though they, usually, are not involved in the physical activity against him), and a mass of citizens that support this activity and is content with it. All the weight of this pyramid is placed above the unit of the members of the Organisation that flies like a cork out of a bottle and walks towards its death. Taking all this scenario into consideration, the question being raised is how “fanatical” they really are.</para>
   <para>Naturally their decision did not involve much thought, at least not in the direction that they understand that they are walking towards their death. Or as the same great man once commented: 'If a terrorist stopped and took ten minutes to think about his actions, he would lose his sanity.'. I'm not saying the members of the Organisation are terrorists, but, in my opinion, this statement applies to them too.</para>
   <para>The question you are most concerned by is probably: what is going to happen in the northern border of your country. About that, allow me to quote that same influential person once more: 'I agree with the head mystics in our time. Despite the logical and practical difficulties, predicting an event, is apparently not so hard after the event had occurred.'</para>
-  <para>The possibility exists that the Supporter will understand that the Organisation is useless (at least objectively), and a waste of resources that are anyhow missing to the Supporter's country. Moreover, it causes the spoiling of the relationship between it and the countries of the second part of the world, that detest ´terrorists´, not to mention the big banks who hold his debts. As of today, the only obstacle that stops the Supporter from reaching this realization is the fact that it rejects Aristotle's Organum.</para>

As of today, the only obstacle that stops the Supporter from reaching this realisation is the fact that it rejects Aristotle's Organum.</para>
   <para>Another possibility that your country have is to try to arrange economical sanctions on the Occupier, so it will stop the activity of the Organisation. However, heads of countries are not content to harm the economical activity of the countries by such sanctions, even if their trade with the Occupier is limited. As for large private corporations - it's hard for me to believe that one can convince enough of them to ostracise the Occupier enough for it to harm his economy in a significant way. Moreover, every company is afraid its competitors will take this opportunity to try and make a profit on its account.</para>
   <para>There is the option of withdrawing from the security zone. Yet, this action doesn't guarantee the cease of the military activity of the Organisation at all, and could bring to an escalation, because there will be a more realistic danger of harming the lives of citizens who live close to the border. The acceptance of my proposal could solve the problem for you. Still, there isn't a full guarantee that it will not be rejected if the heads of the Organisation will find a way to bypass it, and therefore you should not count on it.</para>
   <para>The most practical and fast way to terminate the activity of the Organisation is, perhaps, to sign a normalisation treaty with the Occupier. However, the Occupier has its own conditions, that if the Enemy accepts them, its security in the northern border will decrease significantly. Since the power of the Occupier is ten times greater than the Organisation's, one can understand why your country does not rejoice to sign a normalisation treaty with it, while accepting all the conditions that are inferred from it.</para>

   <para>“Sir, ” I told him, “I am a big fan of yours.”</para>
   <para>“Really?” He said as a smile of pleasure came up on his face “I'm very glad to hear that. Come sit, I always have time for fans.”</para>
   <para>“Even though I'm not too fond of your actions as a whole, your contribution to philosophy was quite impressive.”</para>
   <para>“I'm glad you think so.”</para>
   <para>“Yes. Yes. It can be seen that all the time you acted out of that ideology, and not out of the simplistic ideology that I, by mistake, thought you held earlier. There's definitely much more reason behind your actions now that you've enlightened me.</para>
   <para>Of course an outsider, who didn't have the chance to speak with you yet, could have reached the same conclusion I reached based on your actions. After all, Nazi Germany attacked and destroyed countries, that were mostly Aryan, and caused the killing of many, among them pure Aryans.”</para>
-  <para>I noticed he was opening his mouth to say something, but I did not let him speak. “Yes, I know it was done because those countries acted out of Anti-Aryan interests. Or just because their conquest benefited the welfare of the whole Aryan race in the long term. I will also not discuss much detention camps, `purification´ acts and other such organized actions in which a large number of members of Aryan peoples were killed. It`s obvious that they can be justified by similar arguments.</para>
