Argh, that sounded more greedy and obnoxious than I meant...

Idiots. Absolute idiots. Let's glorify a stupid angry young man who decided that killing a person was the only way to gain his state's independence...even if it was at the cost of thousands of lives of people within his country and without. The President of Serbia calls him a "hero, a symbol of the idea of freedom"...does that mean that terrorist groups in the Middle East blowing up people and causing more senseless antagonism and death to help Palestine become independent are heroes too? I don't see much difference between their actions...

Not to mention that wonderbrain here killed Franz Ferdinand, who was pushing for reform, and trying to make individual states for each ethnic group so that they would have the representation they wanted...and in time, the states would have broken apart as they did in our time, but most likely peacefully (well, there'd have been violent breakaways, but still), and so they'd have got the same result, just with more people alive today.

Another thing that really bugs me about this frigging Serbian statue is that it's basically a giant monument to "Propaganda Of The Deed", a concept which has historically been quite successful at EPICALLY FAILING. For instance, remember how John Wilkes-Booth shot Lincoln and successfully managed to convince people to keep slavery going? Wait, that never happened...um, so what about Luigi Lucheni, who randomly killed Empress Elisabeth of Austria because she was passing by to promote his cause? What, you've never heard of them? Hmm...okay, so how about Osama Bin Laden himself, whose group launched terrorist attacks on the US killing thousands, but successfully managed to make Palestine independent and force the US to back down...oh, wait, that's right, that NEVER HAPPENED. Propaganda of the Deed is nothing more than a weak way to take a shot at someone you don't like while claiming victory; it's the "North Korea" of strategies, and it only ever ends up making the other side more antagonistic towards you. Funny that, but when you start killing people to prove your point, your credibility tends to go down the crapper.

Who am I? I'm a random person who likes solving problems that pop up in various book/film/tv/game/etc series that I pay attention to. Hence, a lot of my work revolves around creating essays, maps, informative pictures, and the odd fan-fic to test out a scenario. I also like designing things, so there's the odd concept there too!

I'm only too happy to help out with things wherever I can...need a quick historical map drawn or want help coming up with a story concept? Send me a message and I'll see what I can do.
