One of the things I love about Twitter is the occasional “wisdom” one picks up, or a nice idiom or even a pithy and sometimes sarcastic remark that enhances your understanding, or even better puts that niggling question in your mind that makes you search for an appropriate answer.
“Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.”
Brilliant quote! Wasn’t there something similar in the Quran or Hadith which says approximately the same thing? In that “whenever a king enters a village, he corrupts it” or something to that effect?
Isn’t it therefore ironic that the majority of Kings and the most ardent clerics remaining in the world, inhabit Muslim lands?
