8. There is no story that is not true, the world has no end, and what is good among one people is an abomination.

9. Storytellers are a threat. They threaten all champions of control, they frighten usurpers of the right to freedom of the human spirit - instate, in church or mosque, in party congress, in the university or wherever.
