Notes

  • Epigraph:

    2014 intercepted electronic communications, DOD…

    aphorism identified as a threat to national security.


    The aphorism envies the novel,

    the novel, of course, envies the haiku

    and the haiku envies the brief life of the leaf.

    – Gen PJ Burke, U.S. Army War College

    Authority is the kernel of riot

    – Prof Emma Burg, LSE

    War and Peace?

    – Leo Bradley Tolstoy, Christian Agent in North Korea
