          The Perils of CEO Worship - What Happens When the Leader Becomes Demented?      Cache   Translate Page      
Introduction: the Cult of the CEO

Although the US and most developed countries are nominally democratic, many of us seem to be again yearning for a man on a white horse, and in the current era, the horse ridden is corporate.
On Health Care Renewal, we having been talking about this pheonomenon for a long time. We have written about it in terms of the messianic (or visionary, or charistmatic) CEO, CEO disease, and the imperial CEO.

These concerns are diffusing into the broader media.  For example, from the introduction to a revent Vox article entitled "The Problem with CEO Worship"

Society has always had heroes, be those of war or art or politics. But entrepreneurs are particularly suited for our current moment, in which success in business is our primary marker of achievement. Business acumen doesn’t just get you money anymore; it can make you the most powerful man in the world.

The signs of CEO worship are everywhere: unprecedented venture capital funding for founders, media overemphasis on company leaders, and to use the most extreme and obvious example, the election of Donald Trump.

That article noted that CEO worship may overestimate the importance of leaders; create "secular fundamentalists" out of individuals; perpetuate destructive neoliberal ideologies; encourage CEOs to make worse decisions; and be bad for business

Those are not the only consequences.  CEO worship makes it possible for a progressively impaired leader to go unconstrained. Unfortunately, we may be seeing the ultimate example of this in the US.

Incoherent Verbal Utterances

Even before he was elected, we noted that Donald Trump sometimes was completely incoherent when describing his health policy ideas.  In early 2016 we raised questions about Donald Trump's cognition.  At that time, a conservative columnist labelled as "word salad" Trump's attempts to sketch a position on health care, specifically the "mandate" provision of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  We found other examples of his utterances on health care policy that could be characterized as gibberish.  This one was short, if not sweet

I want to keep pre-existing conditions. I think we need it. I think it’s a modern age. And I think we have to have it.

How could anyone understand this while listening in real time? A close reading suggests that maybe this was meant to suggest that some people ought to have  insurance coverage for pre-existing conditions. However, Trump seemed to befuddled by that concept.  Furthermore,  note that pre-existing conditions are not desireable, so that one would not want to "keep" them, nor can one choose not to.  To what the word "it" in the second sentence and again in the fourth refers is unclear.  The third sentence seems to be a complete non sequitur. 

We found additional examples of incoherent verbal responses about health care in 2017, and early 2018.  In the last six months, things have only gotten worse.  Examples of verbal incoherence have multiplied, although most were not related to health care. 

In July, 2018, MediaIte reported Trump's incoherent comments at a political rally,

I have broken more Elton John records, he seems to have a lot of records. And I, by the way, I don’t have a musical instrument. I don’t have a guitar or an organ. No organ. Elton has an organ. And lots of other people helping. No we’ve broken a lot of records. We’ve broken virtually every record. Because you know, look I only need this space. They need much more room. For basketball, for hockey and all of the sports, they need a lot of room. We don’t need it. We have people in that space. So we break all of these records. Really we do it without like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.

Perhaps this was meant to suggest that the president drew a larger crowd to an arena than did Elton John.  However, note the non-sequiturs: from "Elton has an organ" to "lots of other people helping" to "we've broken a lot of records," "They need much more room, for basketball, for hockey..." Who are the people helping whom are they helping, and to do what? What records were broken by whom, and how is this relevant to Elton John, etc.  To whom does they refer, and why do they need a lot of room? Etc, Etc.  Again, in real time this would have made no sense at all

In September, 2018, CNBC reported that speaking at a meeting about preparations for Hurricane Florence, Trump said

This is going to be a very large one ... It's tremendously big and tremendously wet. Tremendous amounts of water

Maybe he meant to say this will be a very large hurricane, bringing a tremendous amount of rain.  However, he seemed to be unable to convey the concept of rain.

In September, 2017, the Hill had reported that Trump had defended difficulties in providing relief for Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria thus,

This is an island, surrounded by water. Big water. Ocean water

Again, to be charitable, he seemed to handle the concept of an island in a vast ocean as would a three-year old.

Media articles also suggested that normal people cannot follow or understand what Trump says in real time.  For example,  on November 8, 2018, a Bloomberg op-ed said this about a recent Trump news conference,

In fact, the president was difficult to follow because he simply doesn’t make any sense half the time.

More specifically,

Trump was asked one specific question about health care, and good luck to anyone who tries to figure out what his answer meant. He pretty clearly has just as little idea what he’s talking about on most major policy issues as he did when he first started running for president. On Jamal Khashoggi, waivers on Iranian sanctions, North Korea and Russia, he either ducked the questions with non sequiturs or just babbled.

On November 11, 2018, an article in Slate noted that Trump confused Baltic states with Balkan states in a way that could have foreign policy repercussions,

When President Donald Trump met with Dalia Grybauskaitė of Lithuania, Kersti Kaljulaid of Estonia and Raimonds Vējonis of Latvia earlier this year, he started with a criticism. At the White House in April, Trump opened by chastising the Baltic leaders for starting the war in the 1990s that ended with the breakup of the former Yugoslavia. The Baltic leaders were apparently very confused and it took them 'a moment' to realize that the commander in chief was confusing Baltic states with the Balkans

this case is particularly notable considering Melania Trump is originally from the Balkans. The first lady was born in Slovenia, which gained independence in 1991 at the start of the Balkan wars. As Le Monde wrote, Trump remained 'apparently uneducated in the matter by his wife, Melania, originally from the former Yugoslavia.'

This suggests at best that at times Trump may be unable to distinguish words that sound vaguely alike but have quite different meanings. 

A November 28, 2018, Vox summary article about Trump's recent interview with the Washington Post provided this quote from Trump about economics,

And I’m not blaming anybody, but I’m just telling you I think that the Fed is way off-base with what they’re doing, number one. Number two, a positive note, we’re doing very well on trade, we’re doing very well — our companies are very strong. Don’t forget we’re still up from when I came in 38 percent or something. You know, it’s a tremendous — it’s not like we’re up — and we’re much stronger. And we’re much more liquid. And the banks are now much more liquid during my tenure. And I’m not doing – I’m not playing by the same rules as Obama. Obama had zero interest to worry about; we’re paying interest, a lot of interest. He wasn’t paying down — we’re talking about $50 billion lots of different times, paying down and knocking out liquidity. Well, Obama didn’t do that. And just so you understand, I’m playing a normalization economy whereas he’s playing a free economy. It’s easy to make money when you’re paying no interest. It’s easy to make money when you’re not doing any pay-downs, so you can’t — and despite that, the numbers we have are phenomenal numbers.

The author of the article stated,

I have basically no idea what Trump is talking about here, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t either.

On repeated close reading, I still do not have any idea what Trump meant.  I would add the following questions:  38 percent of what? Who is much more liquid, and how is liquid defined?  Who is paying a lot of interest? What does "paying down and knocking out liquidity" mean? What is a "normalization economy?"  Note that this was coming from someone who claims to be a brilliant business manager.

Furthermore, consider what Trumps aid about the climate,

And when you’re talking about an atmosphere, oceans are very small. And it blows over and it sails over. I mean, we take thousands of tons of garbage off our beaches all the time that comes over from Asia. It just flows right down the Pacific, it flows, and we say where does this come from. And it takes many people to start off with.

Oceans are "small?" What "blows over and sails over?" Over what? What "flows?" What "takes many people?"

In 2017, StatNews published an article describing how 

STAT reviewed decades of Trump’s on-air interviews and compared them to Q&A sessions since his inauguration. 

To summarize the conclusions.

The differences are striking and unmistakable.

Research has shown that changes in speaking style can result from cognitive decline. STAT therefore asked experts in neurolinguistics and cognitive assessment, as well as psychologists and psychiatrists, to compare Trump’s speech from decades ago to that in 2017; they all agreed there had been a deterioration, and some said it could reflect changes in the health of Trump’s brain.

In 2018, Trump's verbal communications at times are even more garbled.  Parts of the passages above suggest the word salad produced by somebody with fluent aphasia versus the nonsensical responses produced by patients suffering from acute delusional states. That Trump is capable of producing this sort of word salad at times, without realizing he is making no sense, suggests the intermittent symptoms seen early in progressive dementia.  

Lack of Insight About Cognition

Furthermore, Trump appears to lack insight about his difficulties commicating.  

In July, 2018, after the NATO conference,  Politico reported, that Trump seemed to have no insight about why much of what he says appears unbelievable to others.  The article noted
leaders who spent the first 18 months of Trump’s presidency thinking there might be a method to his chaos creation — and struggling to discern what it might be — now seem to have concluded that it’s just chaos, and that Trump himself may not understand what he’s doing.

More specifically, European officials commented on what Trump was saying:

A senior NATO official said leaders had concluded that they simply could not rely on anything Trump said.

'You know the way he speaks, you cannot take him literally,' the official said.

Another EU official echoed the point. 'He speaks a language that doesn’t match with diplomacy,' the second official said. 'We were used to the Brits, who speak a more frank diplomatic language, but this is another thing.'

These officials again seemed to be stating that Trump's verbiage can be completely incoherent, albeit they were doing so diplomatically.  After the conference, however, when confronted with a question about the inconsistency of his remarks,

When a Croatian journalist confronted Trump about his inconsistencies, the president flatly denied there were any, and he repeated a defense of his own sanity that he had made when previously questioned about his fitness for the presidency.

'We understand your message, but some people ask themselves, will you be tweeting differently once you board the Air Force One?' the reporter said.

Trump, speaking at his news conference before leaving the summit, replied: 'No, that's other people that do that. I don’t. I’m very consistent. I’m a very stable genius.'

Not to belabor the point, but the examples noted above suggest neither consistency nor stability.  And true geniuses almost never boast about their intellect.

In September, 2018, The Hill reported an interview with Trump in which he said his personal health and management style were reasons that Republicans might do better than expected in the 2018 elections,

'You know, I took that test when I got my last physical, and the doctor said that’s one of the highest scores we’ve ever seen,' Trump said. 'I did that not because I wanted but I did it, I was always good at testing.'

He continued: 'But if there’s anything great about me it’s stability, and I’m a good manager. Always been a good manager, but you know, I have a vision,'

Note that above Trump was presumably referring to the screening test for dementia he took during his official physical examination.  High scores on the test are common, and do not signify great intelligence, just the probable absence of dementia.

In addition, this interpretation assumes that the test was administered in an unbiased way.  However,  there are reasons to question whether Trump's physical was unbiased.  In retrospect, we now know that soon after taking the test, Trump nominated the physician who administered it to be Secretary of Veterans Affairs.  Later the physician withdrew his name after allegations of his questionable personal behavior appeared (look here).  

At least Trump's boast about having "a vision" does correspond to the language often used by public relations spokespeople to justify their CEOs' lack of accountability and high compensation (look here)

Similarly, in the Vox summary of the November, 2018, Washington Post interview (see above for link), Trump stated
a lot of people like myself - we have very high levels of intelligence

Finally, a November 18, 2018 article in MediaIte described this interchange between Trump and interviewer Chris Wallace on Fox News, starting with his response to a question about how he makes decisions

'I don’t think about them,' Trump replied. 'I don’t think about, you know, how I make them....'

However, he responded to a question about Federal Reserve policy

They're making a mistake because I have a gut, and my gut tells me more sometimes than anybody else's brain can ever tell me

This suggests that Trump has lost insight into his own thinking. 

External Observers Suggested Trump Is Cogitively Impaired

In August, Vanity Fair reported:

More than ever, Trump is acting by feeling and instinct.  'Trump is nuts,' said one former West Wing official. 'This time really feels different.' Deputy Chief of Staff Bill Shine has privately expressed concern, a source said, telling a friend that Trump’s emotional state is 'very tender.' Even Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are unsettled that Trump is so gleefully acting on his most self-destructive impulses as his legal peril grows.

In September, 2018, Newsweek reported two instances in which apparent Trump insiders sought psychiatric or medical help for Trump's perceived cognitive problems

[Dr] Lee told Salon that two Trump administration officials approached her after the book was published to express their concern about the president’s mental health, saying he was 'scaring' them because he was 'unraveling.'

In comments to Newsweek over email, Lee said 'it appeared that the officials (if they were officials at all) were at least frequently in [Trump’s] presence.

She continued, 'They were definitely calling from within the White House, which I confirmed by calling back their number. However, I did not ask about their rank. There was no reason for me to doubt they were high-ranking enough to have regular access to the president.'

Lee also said that a 'person [who] was a friend of his entire family, since his childhood” had also been in touch with her at the same time in October 2017, as people in the White House were “stating concern about the president (this was an observation from afar).'

Also in September, 2018, a Politico review of the new book by Robert Woodward based on numerous White House interviews suggested that Trump's inner circle called him a "dope," "idiot," or "moron."


Donald Trump is the chief executive officer of arguably the most powerful country in the world.  Starting during his campaign for the US presidency, we noted that his utterances about health care were at times so incoherent as to suggest cognitive dysfunction.  In the two years since then, especially in the last six months, he has increasingly been noted to be verbally incoherent or confused, has seemed to lack insight about these episodes, and has been observed by close allies and associates to be cognitively impaired.

However, there have ben few, at best, public attempts to link these suggestions of cognitive impairment together, nor to discuss their implications.  The most recent of those that I have found was in January, 2018 (look here and here).  Yet the problems appear to have been getting worse since then.  

While patients with worsening cognitve impairment deserve accurate diagnosis, compassionate care, and access to what few effective, safe treatments may be available for their condition, they obviously should not be in a position to make consequential decisions.  They certainly should not be in charge of large organizations, particularly powerful countries with nuclear weapons.

Yet President Trump's apparent cognitive decline remains anechoic.

For this we may blame CEO worship, which we have too often seen in health care. We have seen many health care leaders praised for their brilliance and paid royally despite leadership resulting in financial distress, threats to the organizations' health care missions, poor patient care, unethical behavior, or even crime. Yet health care CEOs, like other corporate CEOs, and like politicians are just people, sometimes smart, but almost never brilliant.  Promoting them as messianic to bewitch key constituencies, justify the remuneration of other top managers, and the hiring of more public relations flacks is likely to lead to the sort of organizational disasters and system-wide dysfunction we discuss on Health Care Renewal.  The rise of the falsely messianic leader may allow the entry of the most dangerous false messiahs, the psychopathic ones.  (We discussed the likelihood that some health care leaders are actually psychopaths here.)

We must get quickly past our worship of CEOs.  We may not long survive in a world where leaders of nuclear armed nations have no cognitive clothes.

          La OTAN nunca ha sido un bloque defensivo - El Nuevo Diario      Cache   Translate Page      

A lo largo de la Guerra Fría, la OTAN se proclamaba como una alianza defensiva. Sin embargo, esto ni era verdad en aquellos tiempos, ni lo ha sido tampoco desde entonces. Así lo revelan las intervenciones y cambios de regímenes promovidos con sus acciones militares, desde Yugoslavia hasta Libia.

El 4 de abril de 1943, los países fundadores: Bélgica, Canadá, Dinamarca, Estados Unidos, Francia, Islandia, Italia, Luxemburgo, Noruega, Países Bajos, Portugal y Reino Unido (12 en total), firmaron en Washington el Tratado Atlántico Norte. El 18 de mayo de 1950, los cancilleres de dichas naciones, signaron el documento que daba forma a las estructuras permanentes de la Alianza Atlántica.

Tras el desmantelamiento en 1991, de la respuesta socialista a la OTAN (Pacto de Varsovia), la alianza continuó su existencia, expandiendo su membresía y presencia geográfica, usurpando abiertamente el papel de la ONU, interviniendo en la ex-Yugoslavia, comenzó en Bosnia en 1994, lanzando una guerra contra lo que quedaba del país yugoslavo, en 1999, ocupando Kosovo, después de tal operación.

Desde 2001, la OTAN ha participado en la guerra de Estados Unidos en Afganistán. En 2003, no se unió oficialmente a la invasión ilegal de Irak, pero muchos de sus países miembros se unieron a la “Coalición de la voluntad”, impulsada por George W. Bush. 

Después de 1999, la acción militar más abierta fue su intervención el 19 de marzo de 2011 en Libia. Posterior a que el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU autorizara el establecimiento de una zona de exclusión aérea sobre el país, Canadá, Estados Unidos, Francia y Reino Unido iniciaron los ataques aéreos sobre su territorio.

Oficialmente, la Alianza asumió el mando de la guerra el 31 de marzo, bajo la llamada Operación Protector Unificado, realizando en octubre 26,500 vuelos, hasta la muerte del gobernante libio Muammar Gaddafi en octubre.

En 1990, James Baker entonces secretario de Estado de Estados Unidos, prometió al líder soviético Mijail Gorbachov que la OTAN no avanzaría ni una pulgada hacia el este si Alemania se reunificaba, pero hizo exactamente todo lo contrario.

Hungría, Polonia y la República Checa, fueron aceptadas oficialmente a la OTAN en marzo de 1999, pocos días antes de que los aviones de combate de la Alianza, iniciara el bombardeo en el territorio yugoslavo, sumándose en el 2002, Bulgaria, Eslovaquia y Rumania. El último país del antiguo Pacto de Varsovia en unirse (2009). La coalición se expandió hasta las antiguas repúblicas yugoslavas: Croacia, Eslovenia y Montenegro, incluyendo a las antiguas Repúblicas soviéticas de Estonia, Letonia y Lituania, llegando a las fronteras de Rusia. Continúo expandiéndose hacia Georgia y Ucrania.

La más reciente escalada de las tensiones con Rusia inició en febrero de 2014, tras un golpe de Estado en Ucrania, respaldado por Estados Unidos. Desde esa fecha, las tropas de la Alianza establecieron bases en el extremo oeste ucraniano, proporcionando armas, entrenamiento a militares y neonazis para contrarrestar la agresión rusa.

So pretexto de “disuadir a Moscú”, la OTAN estableció bases militares permanentes en los tres Estados bálticos, Rumania y Polonia, llevan a cabo una serie de ejercicios militares masivos en la frontera con Rusia.

Inició las maniobras “Trident Juncture”, en Noruega, una intensiva coordinación estratégica entre Estados Unidos y 30 países, cuyo objetivo es practicar una respuesta militar a cualquier amenaza desde cualquier dirección. Desde el final de la Guerra Fría, tales maniobras son el mayor ejercicio de la OTAN y constituyen un claro mensaje para cualquier potencial adversario, de que protegerá a todos los aliados.

En diversos puntos del país nórdico y en el mar Báltico, los ejercicios se extienden del 25 de octubre al 7 de noviembre, abarca también Islandia, el espacio aéreo de Suecia y Finlandia, dos naciones no miembros de la alianza, pero que este año se sumarán a las maniobras. Los ensayos comprenden cerca de 65 buques, 250 aviones, 10,000 vehículos y unos 50,000 efectivos.

Aunque la Alianza no ha nombrado a su supuesto adversario en las maniobras, el exmilitar Juan Antonio Aguilar (director del portal El Espí, afirma que: el enemigo que justifica la existencia de la OTAN es Rusia. Sostiene que uno de sus objetivos, es visualizar la presencia de fuerzas occidentales en la frontera rusa. El canciller ruso, Serguéi Lavrov, condenó la acumulación de tropas cerca de las fronteras de su país. 

El comportamiento de la OTAN, desde la década de 1990, muestra que se ha convertido en un agresivo y expansionista organismo, al servicio de las prioridades de la política exterior de Estados Unidos.

          ITU signs a new development contract with the European Triathlon Union      Cache   Translate Page      
ITU is pleased to announce it has signed the Development Grant contract with the European Triathlon Union (ETU) for the year 2019. “I am really proud and excited with this contract, that will allow, once more, to help the development of triathlon in all regions in Europe”, said ITU President and IOC member, Marisol Casado. “ETU’s plan for 2019 covers many different National Federations and projects, with a special focus on fostering the growth of National Federations and developing talent in athletes and coaches, which shows how connected ETU President Renato Bertrandi is with the development necessities of European nations.” ETU President Renato Bertrandi presented a plan to use the funds offered by ITU to provide development camps in Cyprus and Serbia, as well as support for the Youth Triathlon Festival Camp in Slovenia, and four training sessions for the ETU Development Team. After signing the agreement, Bertrandi said, “We have listened very carefully to the needs and the “wish list” from our National Federations, athletes, coaches and Officials in order to develop a comprehensive programme that covers as many areas as we can, and that will help to consolidate the work of our Development experts across the Continent. I would like once again to extend my deep gratitude to ITU for the continued support and faith in our work and I look forward to seeing our new athletes race in 2019 and onwards.” ETU will give support to Belarus and Cyprus to help them organize the Youth Triathlon Festival Camp, and also to Bulgaria for a Talent identification camp. Estonia, Greece, Iceland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxemburg, FYR Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Romania and Slovenia will receive funding for some development projects, including TriGirls programmes, coaches education or the launch of the programme We are the Future, for kids of 14 years or younger.

          Macedonia | Tikves Wine District | Demir Kapiya | Popova Kula Winery | Prokupec      Cache   Translate Page      

It is my fourth day at the Popova Kula Winery, a Thursday, and I am still the only guest here. I checked on the internet and discovered, however, that this coming Saturday night the place is full-up with no rooms available. Luckily I am checking out Saturday morning. Incorrigible misanthrope that I am, I have been enjoying the solitude. Meanwhile I am continuing my investigations of the local vintages. The winery produces eleven different kinds of wine:
—Cabernet Sauvignon
—Sauvignon Blanc
— Muscat Ottonel
—Muscat Hamburg
Stanushina, Prokupec, Vranec, Temjanika, and Zilavka are made from grapes indigenous to the Balkan Peninsula; these are the only varieties I am interested in. God forbid that I should come to Macedonia just to drink Cabernet Sauvignon or—horrors!— Merlot! 

According to archeological findings, grapes has been grown and wine produced in the area of Demir Kapiya for at least the last 3600 years. The modern history of viniculture in the Demir Kapiya area began in 1927 when King Alexander Karadjordjevic of Yugoslavia (1888–1934) built a winery here to produce wine for the exclusive use of his royal family. Experts assured the king that of all possible locations in his kingdom, which covered a good part of the Balkan Peninsula, including modern-day Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Slovenia, this area was the most fertile and best suited for growing grapes and producing wine. He named the property the Winery of The Queen Maria in honor of his wife, Maria Karadjordjevic. The king hired the best vintners available and the winery was soon producing wine of extraordinary quality. Unfortunately King Alexander Karadjordjevic was unable to enjoy the fruits of his vineyards for long. On October 9, 1934, during a state visit to Marseille, France, he was assassinated by Bulgarian revolutionary Vlado Chernozemski.

The subsequent history of the winery is a bit hazy, but apparently it continued producing wine in the decades thereafter, except during the world wars and various local upheavals.  After the Second World the Royal Winery, along with other wineries in what was then Yugoslavia, were nationalized. Over 30,000 families who owned small private vineyards continued, however, to supply grapes to these wine making facilities. It was these people who are credited with  maintaining the high quality of local viniculture during the following decades. After the breakup of socialist Yugoslavia in the 1990s and the emergence of the former Yugoslavian republic of Macedonia as an independent country most if not all wineries were privatized. The royal winery in Demir Kapiya was privatized in 1994 and is now known as the Royal Winery Queen Maria. The current winery has an on-site restaurant and rents out rooms, apartments, and for high-rollers the former villa of Queen Maria Karadjordjevic.

The Popova Kula Winery is built on lands that once belonged to the Royal Winery. Construction of the winery itself started in October of 2004 and was completed in August of 2005. Construction of the winery restaurant and hotel was not completed until 2009. The name of the winery, “Popova Kula”, means “Priest’s Tower”. Apparently during the time of the Roman Empire an important road ran through the grounds of the current winery. A large tower served as a checkpoint on the road, and this eventually became known at the Priest’s Tower. This original tower was eventually torn down, but the winery has erected a new 55-foot high tower its honor. This tower has become the easily recognizable symbol of the winery.

Curious about this Roman road, I went down to the lobby and questioned the receptionist, a charming woman in her thirties. She in turn questioned one the local workmen who happened to be handy, and this guy said the Roman road in question was the famous Via Egnatia dating to the time of the Roman Empire, which ran from Durrës in what is now Albania east 696 miles to Constantinople, right across the heart of the Balkan Peninsula. This was certainly intriguing. I had already visited numerous cities and towns on the old Via Egnatia, including Thessaloniki, Kavala, and Kastoria in Greece and Orhid in Macedonia but I was under the impression that the old Roman road passed through the Balkans a good bit south of Demir Kapiya. The receptionist called the local wine museum and the woman at the museum suggested I stop by for more information. So I hiked a mile into town and found the museum, a modest two-room establishment in downtown Demir Kapiya. The woman in charge informed me that the Roman road through Demir Kapiya was not the Via Egnatia itself but a side branch of the main highway. Nevertheless, I was thrilled to discover that Demir Kapiya was in fact linked to the hallowed Via Egnatia. I harbor the sneaking suspicion I have traveled this road in a previous lifetime.

After trekking a mile back from the museum to the winery I retire to my balcony to sample the wine of the day; in this case Prokupec, a wine apparently indigenous to what is now Serbia but also grown in Macedonia. 

From my balcony can be seen the Iron Gate, a gap in the mountains through which the Vardar River flows. The Iron Gate marks the southern boundary of the Tikves Wine Region. It also gives its name to the town just to the north—Demir Kapiya, which in Turkish means “Iron Gate”.

Halfway through my first glass of Prokupec my thoughts drifted, perhaps inevitably, to the Persian Poet Rudaki (858 a.d – 941 a.d.), the favorite poet of the Samanids of Bukhara, in what is now Uzbekistan. The Elton John of his Age, at one point Rudaki owned two hundred slaves who attended to his needs, and a hundred camels were necessary to carry his baggage when he traveled. His verses, it was said, filled a hundred volumes; he reportedly wrote 1,300,000 couplets. Almost all of his work has been lost. Unfortunately, the poet came to a bad end. He may have fell under the sway of the Ismaili Sect, considered heretical in the domains of the Samanids, and he eventually fell out of favor with the court. His lament:

Who had greatness? Who had favour, of all people in the land? 
I it was had favour, greatness, from the Saman scions' hand; 
Khurasan's own Amir, Nasr, forty thousand dirhams gave, 
And a fifth to this was added by Prince of Pure and Brave; 
From his nobles, widely scattered, came a sixty thousand more; 
Those the times when mine was fortune, fortune good in plenteous store. 
Now the times have changed--and I, too, changed and altered must succumb, 
Bring the beggar's staff here to me; time for staff and script has come!

He reportedly died in abject poverty. Perhaps in his final days he repeated one of his couplets:

Were there no wine all hearts would be a desert waste, forlorn and black, 
But were our last life-breath extinct, the sight of wine would bring it back.
A white wine, Zilavka, that I tried earlier. It is also indigenous to the Balkan Peninsula. I am not a big fan of white wine,  but this one was not bad at all.

          DOCUMENTAR: Moş Nicolae - obiceiuri şi tradiţii      Cache   Translate Page      
Seara de 5 decembrie este pentru toţi copiii prilej de emoţie. Cu grijă îşi curăţă cizmele sau ghetele şi le aşează aproape de uşă sau de fereastră, în aşteptarea lui Moş Nicolae. Conform tradiţiei, celor cuminţi, moşul le aduce dulciuri, iar celor neascultători, o nuieluşă. Tradiţia sosirii lui Moş Nicolae îşi are originea în povestea unui personaj care a existat cu adevărat - episcopul Nicolae de Myra, care a trăit în Myra-Lichia, în secolul al IV-lea. Lui Nicolae de Myra îi sunt atribuite numeroase fapte bune faţă de cei săraci şi năpăstuiţi, dar şi miracole, numele său traducându-se prin "biruitor de popor". Provenind dintr-o familie înstărită, la moartea părinţilor săi, şi-a dăruit întreaga avuţie celor nevoiaşi. Una dintre cele mai cunoscute legende despre Moş Nicolae este povestea celor trei fete sărace, care neavând zestre, nu se puteau căsători şi urmau să fie vândute de tatăl lor unor bărbaţi înstăriţi. Legenda spune că Sfântul Nicolae, aflându-le durerea, le-a aruncat fiecăreia pe geam, într-o noapte, câte un săculeţ de bani, care a căzut fie în ciorapii puşi la uscat, fie în ghete. De aici provine obiceiul ca darurile de Moş Nicolae să fie puse în ghete, conform volumului "Cartea de Crăciun" de Sorin Lavric, Editura Humanitas, 1997. De asemenea, există obiceiul să se pună în apă crenguţe de pomi fructiferi în casă, lângă icoane, care să înflorească de Anul Nou. În funcţie de crenguţa care a înflorit, se aşteaptă recolta de fructe în noul an. La sate există obiceiul ca în ziua de Sfântul Nicolae feciorii să se organizeze în cete şi să-şi aleagă gazda unde vor merge pentru repetiţiile colindelor de Crăciun şi de Anul Nou. Legenda lui Moş Nicolae s-a răspândit în toată lumea şi a luat caracteristicile fiecărei ţări. În Europa, în secolul al XII-lea, ziua Sfântului Nicolae a devenit ziua darurilor şi a activităţilor caritabile. În Germania, imaginea lui Moş Nicolae este a unui bătrân ce poartă un sac în spate şi o nuieluşă în mână. Dacă n-au fost cuminţi, copiii primesc nuieluşe, cartofi sau cărbuni. În unele regiuni din Germania, copiii se costumează în Moş Nicolae şi colindă casele vecine, pentru a primi dulciuri. Copiii din Franţa lasă pentru Moş Nicolae un pahar cu vin, iar pentru măgăruşul lui, morcovi şi zahăr. În noaptea de 5 spre 6 decembrie, ei primesc ciocolată, turtă dulce, fructe şi trimit scrisori rudelor pentru a le ura sărbători fericite. În regiunile din estul Franţei, copiii ştiu că Moş Nicolae vine călare pe un măgăruş, alături de Pere Fouettard (Moş Nuieluşă), înveşmântat în negru. Moş Nicolae lasă daruri copiilor buni, iar Pere Fouettard este cel care-i ceartă pe copiii care n-au fost cuminţi, dându-le o nuieluşă. La copiii olandezi, moşul ajunge pe mare, venind din Spania. Dacă n-au fost cuminţi, se tem de însoţitorul moşului, Zwarte Piet (Petru cel Negru). El îl ajută pe Moş Nicolae cu darurile şi dulciurile pentru copiii cuminţi, precizează volumul amintit. În Belgia şi Luxemburg, copiii îşi aşează ghetuţele în faţa uşii şi, la fel ca micuţii francezi, pregătesc un pahar de vin pentru moş, morcovi şi zahăr pentru calul lui. Odată cu Moş Nicolae, la fel ca şi în alte ţări europene, copiii îl aşteaptă şi pe însoţitorul său, Hoseker.   Foto: (c) VLAD STAVRICĂ / AGERPRES FOTO Moş Nicolae este foarte iubit de copiii din Austria, care-l ştiu ca pe un bătrân înveşmântat asemenea unui episcop, cu o carte mare în care îngerii au scris toate faptele celor mici şi care călătoreşte alături de Krampus, care ţine în mână o nuia destinată micuţilor care nu au dat ascultare părinţilor. Copiii din Italia aşează pe o farfurie, în seara de 5 decembrie, scrisorile în care-şi notează dorinţele, promiţându-i lui Moş Nicolae că vor fi cuminţi în anul care va veni. A doua zi, în locul scrisorilor, găsesc dulciurile lor preferate. Tot în Italia, există tradiţia numită Rito delle nubili (ritualul celor necăsătoriţi). În Croaţia, Moş Nicolae (Sveti Nikola) aduce cadouri pe 6 decembrie, cu ocazia zilei sale consacrate. În seara dinainte, copiii îşi lustruiesc încălţămintea şi o aşează pe pervazurile ferestrelor, pentru ca moşul să le umple cu daruri, dulciuri şi fructe. În Polonia, Moş Nicolae este o personalitate extrem de divinizată şi respectată. Îmbrăcat în haine episcopale şi purtând bastonul episcopal, se crede că el coboară din ceruri cu ajutorul unui înger şi colindă întreaga ţară pe jos sau purtat într-o trăsură trasă de un cal alb. Moş Nicolae intră în case şi ascultă rugăminţile copiilor. El îi ceartă sau îi laudă şi le dăruieşte apoi icoane, mere roşii, portocale şi "pierniki" (prăjiturele sfinte, făcute cu miere şi mirodenii). Uneori, el lasă darurile sub pernele copiilor care dorm sau le pune în ghete.   Foto: (c) ISABELA PĂULESCU / AGERPRES FOTO În unele oraşe şi sate din Slovacia, Moş Nicolae, sau Svaty Mikulas, soseşte într-o trăsură trasă de un cal. Copiii nerăbdători să îl vadă se adună pe străzi şi se unesc în coruri şi dansuri. În unele regiuni, moşul vizitează copiii acasă. În ajun, copiii îşi aşează încălţările lustruite pe pervazul ferestrei sau în pragul uşii, sperând să le găsească dimineaţa încărcate cu daruri. În unele şcoli are loc sărbătoarea "Mikul Mail", în cadrul căreia copiii îşi dăruiesc unul altuia mici cadouri. În Slovenia, în seara de 5 decembrie, copiii îşi aşează încălţămintea afară, în faţa uşii, aşteptând să o găsească a doua zi încărcată de fructe, bomboane, monede şi mici jucării. Cel care îl însoţeşte pe Moş Nicolae, numit Parkel, pune în încălţările copiilor obraznici cărbuni şi cenuşă.   Foto: (c) ISABELA PĂULESCU / AGERPRES FOTO Înaintea zilei de Sfântul Nicolae (Szent Mikulás), copiii din Ungaria îşi lustruiesc pantofii cei mai buni şi îi aşează pe pervaz pentru a fi umpluţi de darnicul moş. Dimineaţa, ei găsesc în pantofi bomboane, portocale, nuci, mere, ciocolată şi mici cadouri. Copiii obraznici primesc nuiele aurii şi linguri de lemn.

From the book.

This minor obsession began with a photograph I took very long ago at a rest stop during a bus trip from Dubrovnik to Belgrade, in what then was called Yugoslavia  ...

 ... followed by the helpful intervention of the internet 30 years later, enabling a positive ID.

UPDATE: "Tjentište War Memorial, Yugoslavia, then and now."

The two fractal walls of the memorial were erected in the 1970’s to remember Operation Fall Schwarz, otherwise known as the Battle of the Sutjeska. The military action took place during World War II and saw Axis forces attempt to rout a group of Yugoslavian forces and capture their leader.

If you're the Twitter type, the author of a new book about these memorials maintains an informative presence: Spomenik Database.

The Spomenik Database is an educational resource intended to catalog and demystify the abstract WWII monuments (spomeniks) of the former-Yugoslavia.

As for the book itself, this holiday season it would make the perfect gift for your favorite beer-slinging fan of brutalist monuments.

Spomenik Monument Database, a book by Donald Niebyl

Spomenik – the Serbo-Croat/Slovenian word for monument – refers to the pioneering abstract memorials built in Josip Tito’s Yugoslavia between the 1960s and the 1990s, marking the horror of occupation by Axis forces and the triumph of their defeat during World War II. Through these imaginative creations, a forward–looking socialist society, free of ethnic tensions, was envisaged.

This publication brings together more than 80 examples of these stunning brutalist monuments. Each has been extensively photographed and researched by the author to make this book the most comprehensive survey available of this obscure and fascinating architectural phenomenon. A fold-out map on the reverse of the dust jacket shows the exact location of each spomenik using GPS coordinates.

          PRESUPUESTOS Y HUELGA DE HAMBRE      Cache   Translate Page      
Rafael del Barco Carreras

Barcelona 5-12-2018. Sánchez promete los presupuestos para enero, después de sacar a Franco del Valle de los Caídos, de prometer acabar con los aforamientos y la inviolabilidad del Rey, o sea reformar la Constitución, de perder en Andalucía y hacer el ridículo con Gibraltar, o que las encuestas de su CIS le eleven a la presidencia europea o de la ONU, más su gran éxito 'dialogando' con los corruptos y rebeldes catalanes.

Y su homólogo Quim Torra, de 'igual a igual' dice, que se niega a recibirle el día 21 tras haberle invitado, se va a Eslovenia para no celebrar la Constitución, la 'jaula' que nos esclaviza a los catalanes. De paso no sufrirá demasiado la 'huelga de hambre' que vacía las despensas de la Generalitat. En el viaje se supone la conexión expresa y directa con Lladoners para informarse de las constantes vitales de los huelguista, o de cuanto 'flotan en el aire' según Turull entrevistado por Racc1: "Pensaba que sería peor. Pensaba que estaría irritable y no lo estoy. Estoy en una situación que ya me habían advertido, y estoy como flotando".

¿Turull habrá alcanzado la idealizada Ítaca prometida por Oriol Junqueras? Política ficción mientras médicos, profesores y funcionarios, siguen en huelga real y se presentan ante el Parlament. En cuanto a los presupuestos españoles ¡los presupuestos catalanes son otro cantar! los 'golpistas' quizá debilitados por el hambre se avengan y firmen. Si entre los presuntos 'malversadores y rebeldes' y los muchos corruptos en torno a CDC o PDCAT y JUNTSPERCAT, se reparte algún caramelo, firmarán.

Fuera una gozada ver a Pujol presidiendo el 'diálogo' de los presupuestos con Sánchez, que sin duda acabaría en el diván del psiquíatra. Si Jordi  le cogiera de la mano y le subiera al Tagamanent o al propio Montserrat que también se ha adherido a la 'huelga de hambre', a buen seguro Pedro cambíaría su nombre por Pere, hablando catalán en la 'intimidad', como dijera Aznar que también 'gobernabilizó' con el gran gurú.


 "Pedro Sánchez ha puesto sobre la mesa su último comodín. O uno de sus últimos, porque con el líder socialista nunca se sabe. En el empeño por retomar la iniciativa política tras el descalabro de su partido en Andalucía, ha decidido enviar los Presupuestos Generales del Estado a las Cortes en enero y medir los apoyos parlamentarios de su precario Gobierno. La complicada aprobación de los mismos —en plena huelga de hambre de presos independentistas y con el juicio del 'procés' dominando la agenda política— y el calendario que se abre descartan prácticamente elecciones en marzo y apuntan a un superdomingo electoral en mayo. Sin unas nuevas cuentas, Sánchez tendría poca gasolina para seguir hasta otoño, pero al menos escenificaría su distancia del independentismo, lo que aliviaría en algo a los barones para ir juntos a una jornada electoral sin precedentes."

 "Hace 40 años se aprobaba la Constitución Española tras un arduo proceso de negociación y posterior ratificación por parte de la sociedad española. La Carta Magna tuvo un apoyo social abrumador y se convirtió así en uno de los escasos proyectos colectivos de nuestra historia que han sido capaces de aunar las voluntades de los distintos ciudadanos y territorios que componen nuestro país. Los españoles y las españolas sentían ansias de democracia y libertad tras casi cuarenta años de dictadura."

El Mundo

 "El diputado del PDeCATFerran Bel ha mostrado hoy la predisposición del partido independentista a negociar los Presupuestos Generales del Estado de 2019 si el Gobierno realiza una "propuesta razonable". En concreto, Bel ha señalado que el deseo de su formación es un referéndum acordado sobre el futuro político de Cataluña, pero que si el presidente Pedro Sánchez ofrece una medida que vaya más allá de un nuevo Estatuto para Cataluña, incluso aunque no estuviera cerrada, su formación podría negociar el Presupuesto."

"El Pdecat se ha salido este miércoles del guión dictado por Quim Torra y ha abierto la puerta a aprobar los Presupuestos Generales del Estado (PGE), una posibilidad que el presidente de la Generalitat ha descartado reiteradamente desde que la Fiscalía y la Abogacía del Estado presentaron sus escritos de acusación de cara al juicio a los líderes independentistas, a principios de noviembre.
El encargado de ponerle el cascabel al gato ha sido el diputado en el Congreso Ferran Bel, que consideró que la formación neoconvergente podría avalar las cuentas si hubiera sobre la mesa "una propuesta razonable", según informa Efe."

"Quim Torra no sólo rechaza celebrar el día de la Constitución, sino que ha elegido el próximo 6 de diciembre para emprender un viaje oficial a Eslvoenia, donde pronunciará una conferencia titulada: "Cataluña: de la jaula constitucional española a la libertad".
El presidente de la Generalitat -que se entrevistará con el que fuera primer presidente del país tras su independencia- quiere evidenciar de este modo su desprecio a la Carta Magna al tiempo que alimenta la propaganda secesionista de su Ejecutivo en el extranjero."
