->''"This blanket amnesia is often part of the aftermath of war. The puncturing of the nationalist myth, an event that saw the Serbs turn their back on Milošević once [[UsefulNotes/TheYugoslavWars Kosovo was lost]], does not mean, however, that the nationalist virus has been conquered. While the excesses carried out in the name of the nationalist cause are forgotten or ignored, the myth of the nation has a disturbing longevity. It lies dormant, festering in the society, nurtured by boys' adventure stories of heroism in service to the nation, the monuments we erect to the fallen, and [[OrwellianEditor carefully scripted remembrances]] until it slowly slouches back into respectability."''

->''Where's your fear now?\\
Look at all the blood and flesh: It's like fireworks!\\
It splatters and splatters!\\
\\
I haven't forgotten my thousands of scars.\\
The flame's heat... spilling organs...\\
Final cries... clouded eyes...\\
Ahh, those are the things I truly seek!\\
\\
Peace and tranquility, let alone reconciliation,\\
Are the acts of domestic dogs who've forsaken their fangs!\\
Sheer madness, brought on by despair and disturbance,\\
Sounds more like Paradise than it does Hell!''
