Ten Commandments of Diplomacy

by Dick Mac

  1. Thou shalt not ask what thy country can do for thou, but what thou can do for thy country
  2. Thou shalt imagine no religion, too
  3. Thou shalt not fool some of the people all of the time nor fool all of the people some of the time
  4. Thou shalt embrace power and powerlessness
  5. Thou shalt tear down that wall
  6. Thou shalt not force the fishes of the sea to ride bicycles nor thy women to serve men
  7. Thou shalt not allow vice to be rampant and rife and shalt always dance with thy wife
  8. Thou shalt care about everything and sow an opinion about it all
  9. Thou shalt smile politely at conservatives and remain silent
  10. Thou shalt always be candid
