The Philosopher Between the Capitalist and the Communist
Chapter 5 : The Philosopher Was Always Alone
"Communism and Capitalism are the same thing. They only envy truth, but they could never want to spread it." The philosopher talks to himself as he travels the lonely road.
His mind wanders inwardly, as he thinks about his travels, kicking the odd pebble here and there that might otherwise get stuck underneath his sandals, "Learning is suffering. I learned, I suffered, and I moved on, even if it meant sneaking through a palace window... again."
"I don't know when I'll get there, but once I'm home, I better not hear anyone call me Olmo or Amin. I don't even know why I left. It feels like those two kings used me up and threw me away, and the only thing I want now is to be in the company of anyone who's completely different from Hammurabi and Solon."
