It´s Taken a While – But He´s Almost Dead Now!

The newspapers this morning write that former Chilean dictator Pinochet is close to death.

When I read it, I was quite pleased. I generally do not wish anybody harm so let the hand of God help us a bit. The world in my opinion will be a better place without the cruel sadist that was Pinochet as a dictator.

People lament the fact that they have never been able to put him to justice, well, so be it. The fact is that his crimes will follow him into his grave, as they are stains of history that cannot be washed off. So let him die of old age, a sad man who loses in the end. If not the courts, history will punish him anyway. And maybe it befits to remember a few lines from a Milosz poem here, this time not against communists but against fascists:

Do not feel safe. The poet remembers.
You can kill one, but another is born.
The words are written down, the deed, the date.
