'Assyria' is a Verb - not a Noun ?
BTW: Who invented that idiotic slogan, at all?
Flash back to reality:
'Assyria' is a Noun - not a Verb.
That simple it is.
A noun like "destruction", "oppression" and "usurpation" -
but also as "action", "love", "care", "invention" as well as e.g. "doing".
Only a person too deeply absorbed into the magics of rhetorical sleights of
hand will try to simply redefine realities in ideological scrap terms instead
of trying to change it.
And only such a person - in his/her abhorrence of meaning - will totally
miss giving any contents to the term "Assyria".
Thus is remains a mere colonic puff.
One of the deeper reasons for this is that the focus of that slogan is
unduely narrowed down to action (as signalled by reference to "verb")
despising language ("noun") with its emancipatory gifts of ungagged
discussion and opinion forming.
At the heart of the problem, however, is a total eclipse of yet another, a
higher instance above the "verb" and the "noun" :
The free and creative individual thinking (ideas) of a human being taking
up his/her responsibilities vis-à-vis mankind.
Thus, that "verb" turns out to be nothing more than a sign of dictated,
thoughtless, speechless, manipulable & and abusable blind and dumb
The standard formula for enslaving minds.
Well wielded by so many an Assyrian political party and organisation.
