Who is Hans “Schlümpfe” Schmidt? It’s a question many ask and to help the world know him better Hans has selected two quotations (see below) as laying down the yin and yang of who he is and what fascinates him most in the world. Despite the ebb and flow of life’s innumerable often dissonant details, this yin yang has remained constant.
“The irony of intelligent design: it isn't a case of God made Man but, in the end, Man is making God - an artificial intelligence, transcendent and subtle and inevitable.”
“If journalism defines fact by what's expedient (as politicians do) anything counter-narrative becomes a non-story to be suppressed. Truth is an inevitable casualty. Worse is to come. Suppression is the antithesis of freedom. Freedom becomes counter-narrative, yours included.”
p.s. Schlümpfe in Germany refers to those blue cartoon gang-bangers: the Smurfs.
