I first blogged about Sabahudin Hadzialic’s aphorisms back in 2009. Here is a fresh selection of his mordant black humor, translated into English by Anya Reich with a little idiomatic editing by me…

 

Socialist thought created a religion of ideology; capitalist thought created an ideology of religion.

 

In the Balkans, apathy is not the exception that proves the rule, it is the rule that excludes the exception!

 

Why do we hate each other? After all, we’re just three different tribes of the same people. But which tribe!?

 

Politicians decided to put an end to organized crime—by committing mass suicide!

 

Campaigning is when you want to influence the masses; manipulation is when you succeed.
