Damir Dokić

From Quotes
The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else. Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist.
John Maynard Keynes

  • Australia with the help of Croatia and the Vatican have brainwashed my daughter.
  • I have thought about dropping a nuclear bomb on Sydney since Jelena lost in the first round this week, for which Australia is to blame.
  • I have even thought about killing an Australian in revenge, but I wouldn't gain anything from it.
  • Damir has sought help from Serbian politicians, including an accused war criminal, in kidnapping Jelena.
