White: I think that’s the most ridiculous thing I ever heard. Very clever. What’s the point?

Black: The point dont change. The point is always the same point. It’s what I said before and what I keep lookin for ways to say it again. The light is all around you, cept you dont see nothin but shadow. And the shadow is you. You the one makin it.

Los orígenes de San Javier se remontan un siglo atrás, cuando el 27 de julio de 1913 un grupo de 300 familias provenientes en su mayoría de la ciudad de Vorónezh, ubicada en el sur de Rusia, se instalaron en tierras del departamento de Río Negro, a orillas del Río Uruguay. Eran integrantes de la congregación religiosa Nuevo Israel, una secta escindida de la iglesia ortodoxa rusa que tenía como líder espiritual a Vasili Lubkov, quien para sus seguidores era el nuevo mesías.

"The intelligence services embraced solutionism before other government agencies. Thus, they reduced the topic of terrorism from a subject that had some connection to history and foreign policy to an informational problem of identifying emerging terrorist threats via constant surveillance. They urged citizens to accept that instability is part of the game, that its root causes are neither traceable nor reparable, that the threat can only be pre-empted by out-innovating and out-surveilling the enemy with better communications."

"It is a funny thing. A man can make a promise to his God, break it five minutes later and never think anything about it. With an idle shrug of his shoulders, a man can also break solemn promises to his mother, wife or sweetheart, and, except for a slight, momentary twinge of conscience, he still won’t be bothered very much. But if a man ever breaks a promise he has made to himself he disintegrates. His entire personality and character crumble into tiny pieces, and he is never the same man again."
