Liliputins
___________   

"Yury pushes the boundaries of satire; he is provocative and spares no one, himself included "

Trevor Noah


Liliputins ( derived from adjective "lilliputian" which means "very small in size" but in my case not necessarily "trivial "and idiom "to put words in sb.' mouth"  in short ) are a brand- new cutting edge direction in modern postmodernistic fiction of mockery, ridicule, sarcasm and derision solely created, coined  and penned by me. Based on Soren Kierkegaard's idea that life could be only understood backwards I’m deliberatly, willfully and literally putting in the mouths of the great characters in history and fictional protagonists ( stock characters) of all epoques  and countries dead or alive the made-up words or real ( or twisted) quotations , which they never have said,  but might have. To make a long  story short, liliputins are my own mostly revisionistic and anachronistic creations in form of intencially produced misquotations or counterfeit one line aphorisms, maxims, mini tales, jokes or quips  with some degree of truth in it, which I attribute ( misattribute ) to others in order to make a point. It is completely up to the readers’s  level  of  knowledge,  intelligence and believes to sort  out  truth from fiction . Liliputins compresse time and allow to put on the collision course the present and the past, the alive and the dead, things and humans, dead serious and ridicule, real and made up. Liliputins are also a suitable vehicle for the would be time travelers and alternative history lovers. Liliputins are contemporary, old fashioned, satiric, ironic, thought- provoking, mind-boggling, hilarious, sad, mean, kind, shocking, outrageous, flattering, highly controversial, but never boring  and always eye-opening and short as the life itself.
Mrs. Erma Bombeck said once “There is a thin line that separates laughter and pain, comedy and tragedy, humor and hurt.”
I sincerely hope I did not overstep this thin line in my book.
Sorry for unintended contempt and pain I might cause.
Oscar Wilde once said " If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you.”
So please don't kill the mocking bird !

It is quite true what philosophy says; that life must be understood backwards. But then one forgets the other principle: that it must be lived forwards. Which principle, the more one thinks it through, ends exactly with the thought that temporal life can never properly be understood precisely because I can at no instant find complete rest in which to adopt a position: backwards."
Soren Kierkegaard, Journals IV A 164 (1843)

Postmodernism

Postmodernism describes both an era and a broad late-20th century movement that occurred across philosophy, the arts, architecture, and criticism which marked a departure from modernism.[1][2] While encompassing a broad range of ideas and projects, postmodernism is typically defined by an attitude of skepticism or distrust toward grand narratives, ideologies, and various tenets of Enlightenment rationality, including the existence of objective reality and absolute truth, as well as notions of rationality, human nature, and progress.[3] Instead, it asserts that knowledge and truth are the product of unique systems of social, historical, and political discourse and interpretation, and are therefore contextual and constructed. Accordingly, postmodern thought is broadly characterized by tendencies to epistemological and moral relativism, pluralism, self-referentiality, and focus on subjectivity.[3]

The term postmodernism has been applied both to the era following modernity, and to a host of movements within that era (mainly in art, music, and literature) that reacted against tendencies in modernism.[4] Postmodernism includes skeptical critical interpretations of culture, literature, art, philosophy, history, linguistics, economics, architecture, fiction, and literary criticism. It is often associated with deconstruction and post-structuralism because its usage as a term gained significant popularity at the same time as twentieth-century post-structural thought.

On Picasso's quote, “Art is a lie that tells the truth.”;

gallerywalk.org
 

“Art is a lie that tells the truth.” With so many quotes attributed to Picasso, it’s hard to track down where they actually came from, or whether they were even said at all.

In 1923, Picasso talked about cubism with an American critic named Marius de Zayas. The discussion was translated (with his approval) and published as “Picasso Speaks,” in The Arts. What Picasso is really talking about is cubism, and how much he’s not into “research” when it comes to painting. Here’s part of it:


When I paint, my object is to show what I have found and not what I am looking for. In art intentions are not sufficient and, as we say in Spanish: love must be proved by facts and not by reasons. What one does is what counts and not what one had the intention of doing.

We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies. If he only shows in his work that he has searched, and re-searched, for the way to put over lies, he would never accomplish anything.

Stock character

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A stock character is a stereotypical fictional character whom audiences readily recognize from frequent recurrences in a particular literary tradition. Stock characters are archetypal characters distinguished by their flatness; as a result, they tend to be easy targets for parody and to be criticized as clich;s. The presence of a particular array of stock characters is a key component of many genres.[1][2]

Lilliput

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lilliput and Blefuscu are two fictional island nations that appear in the first part of the 1726 novel Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift. The two islands are neighbors in the South Indian Ocean, separated by a channel eight hundred yards wide. Both are inhabited by tiny people who are about one-twelfth the height of ordinary human beings. Both kingdoms are empires, i.e. realms ruled by a self-styled emperor. The capital of Lilliput is Mildendo.
The word lilliputian has become an adjective meaning "very small in size", or "petty or trivial". When used as a noun, it means either "a tiny person" or "a person with a narrow outlook, who minds the petty and trivial things."

The ethics of deliberate misattribution

from Straight Dope


" I watched this meme explode out of the womb over the past day and this quip popped into my head. I did a bit of cursory searching for its origin because, well, you know, there is nothing new under the sun. It is witty and has interesting nuances, so I liked it and wanted to make sure someone (no, you did not come up with it, sorry) would not get a hair up if I used it. So, to CMA, I decided to attach an obvious misattribution thusly:

The Internet: faster than the speed of thought – Oscar Wilde

I mean, it honestly could be mine, every few years I hit a patch of creative wit, but I have no particular desire to own IP, as it were. What are the ethical implications of sullying the name of a dead guy (who might well have made a similar comment in the modern age) with words he clearly never could have uttered ?  "

Given he clearly could never had said it, the attribution isn't an attribution, it forms part of the wit of the entire quip. So there is no ethical issue with respect to Oscar Wilde.

So with attribution it becomes:

The Internet: faster than the speed of thought – Oscar Wilde - For You

Now, if you knew who came up with the initial quote, and deliberately avoided attribution, it is harder. Adding Oscar Wilde makes it funnier. So it is a derivative work. But if you attributed it to John Doe, you are deliberately mis-attributing it to avoid credit being given to the originator - and that isn't ethical.

These are jokes and not subject to the ethical aspects of misattribution. More to the point is Fox News which fabricates quotes, takes existing ones out of context, selectively edits them to make a point, or takes real ones an attributes them to the wrong person. This is done deliberately and willfully, and with the intent to decieve.

First: Oscar Wilde quotes? Someone's been reading Uncyclopedia! Oscar Wilde is King there.

Second: I think Winston Churchill wins otherwise for false attributions. Either that or Mark Twain. Voltaire may have mainly one falsie, but it's misattributed a lot.

No need to attribute anything to Oscar Wilde. It's implied.

Impelled to try an epigram,
I never seek to take the credit;
We all assume that Oscar said it."

There is a fun variation where you take a famous quote, attribute it to the wrong person (but from a related media), and then put it on a picture of another different person (again from a related media)

For example: "Do, or Do Not. There is no Try." -- James T. Kirk, superimposed over a photo of Gandalf.

Contradict-the-implied
_______________________


a form of putting words into someone's mouth by disagreeing with what you think another has suggested rather than what they've actually said, usually in a very exaggerated way


"Can you take me to the mall real quick, Jen?" asked Ron. "I'm not your slave here to serve you," said Jen. "Oh brother! Another contradict-the-implied statement. I never said that."
 
Wendy's made the contradict-the-implied statement of a typical stern parent: "Can I have a couple bucks for a new video game." "Money does not grow on trees and this is not a playground, young man."
 
George's contradict-the-implied statement really pissed me off. After I asked him if he wanted to see a movie together, he yelled, "I'm not the movie wizard who was brought here to go to the movies with you, Cindy."
 
"Want to hang out today?" I asked Ron. "I do too have a job and a life," he retorted with some snotty contradict-the-implied statement.
 
"I'm not a pervert with a toe castle and fungus in my room," said Andy when I asked if he would rub my feet. "Quit making contradict-the-implied statements. I never said that."

Zitate

Юрий Слободенюк

Welche Zeitung man immer auch aufschlaegt: Wir finden Zitate. Schoengeistige oder ironische, tiefsinnige oder freche. Ob aus Literatur, Politik oder Wirtschaft usw., kein Lebensbereich wird ausgelassen, wo nicht staendig kurze Saetze fallen, die einfach zitierreif sind.

 Aber wann sind denn gedachte, geschriebene oder gesprochene Saetze sozusagen "spruchreif"? Es gibt keine Regel. Jeder entscheidet den Reifezustand eines Zitates nach eigenem Gutduenken und Bewusstsein. Manchmal sind es schlichte einfache Wahrheiten, die ohne Schnoerkelei auf den Punkt kommen. Sie sagen uns etwas, das wir zwar wissen, aber dennoch nicht leben oder nicht ausreichend in unser Leben integriert haben. Sie erinnern uns. Wir erinnern uns, dass wir dies und jenes doch schon immer gut fanden und im Alltag umsetzen wollten. Und dann fuehlen wir: Es gelang uns nicht, obschon das Zitat doch unsere tiefste Sehnsucht ausdrueckt. Manchmal werden solche Sprueche von sehr prominenten und bekannten Menschen kreiert, aber auch von voellig Unbekannten, die ebenfalls ueber entsprechende Geisteskraefte verfuegen.

 Manche Zitate mahnen uns. Zu recht und immer wieder neu auf sehr verschiedene Art. Andere bringen uns zum Lachen. Sie sind kurios, frech, spritzig. Sie brechen Tabus und Regeln, an deren Bruch wir uns einen Augenblick herzlich weiden. Vor allem, weil wir ja nicht dafuer bestraft werden, wenn wir innerlich zustimmen.

 Wieder andere Sprueche locken uns. Sie zeigen uns Wirklichkeiten, die wir schon immer wollten, aber uns nicht getrauten zu leben. Sie fordern uns dazu auf, authentisch zu werden und uns zu uns selbst zu bekennen. Fuer viele Menschen keine leichte Aufgabe, weil sie ja auch um ihre Schwaechen wissen und auch dort sehr genau hinschauen.

 Dann gibt es aber auch dumme Zitate. Dumm, weil sie falsch sind. Obschon der Volksmund sie dennoch fuer wuerdig empfand, weitergegeben zu werden. Nicht jedes Zitat ist ein kluges, wahres oder richtiges Zitat im Sinngehalt seiner Aussage. Auch bei Zitaten ist ein kritischer Verstand hoechst wertvoll, wenn man nicht so manchem Aphoristiker boese auf den Leim gehen will.

 Die Beliebtheit von Zitaten jedoch besteht darin, dass es sich in aller Regel um wahre kleine Schaetze handelt, die vom Grossen sprechen. Bedeutungsvolle Worte, die knapp formuliert sind, nicht mehr als ein oder zwei Saetze brauchen und damit eine Essenz ausdruecken, die unser Herz anruehrt oder unseren Verstand beeindruckt.

 Gute Zitate und Aphorismen sind Geistesperlen, die uns von der Schoenheit des Denkens der Menschen kuenden. Sie sind wie Blumen und wir sollten sie hegen, pflegen und die Wertvollen unter ihnen auf lange Zeit erinnern.
