“I believe” is an equal opportunity phrase, there is no rank or privilege on this mortal coil turning and travelling through time and space.

It is a right born of existence. Beyond your control.

Do not your proclaim your belief as a right to command or impose. Speak not of Royal Decree, personal illumination from beyond; the threat of force is the threat of force.

Threats are threats, lies are lies, even dressed in smiles and misinformation.

Quote as you might your books, your texts diligently learned; they are not marks of merit, however assiduously earned.

Start an argument if you wish; assert your beliefs with conviction. State your case, stick to the issue. I advise you, beware!

Tell me no lies, no matter how small; no cynical self-serving abuse of the language I so value; twist and turn it at your own peril.

It will not be insulted; it carries in its syntax the blood and sweat of too many writers and poets. In the end you, your falsehoods and poisoned rhetoric will be exposed.

We argue, debate or disagree; this is the nature of those who are free.

The issues will be neither old nor new, whatever your current view.

It is an eternal quest for understanding how that structure there is chaos, and how structure can be born out of chaos. How can be being and non-being co-exist?

So my enemy, my friend, my fellow human being; let’s call a brief respite, a truce.

Meet in this place, to converse and consider a hypothesis, it goes like this:

“We fight and squabble, reach out and connect; are caught in History’s flow.” Choose your beverage, take a seat; let’s see where the conversation goes.

Les Bush 30 March 2014

The title, “crdeo ut intelligam” is the Latin translation of “I believe in order to understand”.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp’s introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All seven of his novels are now published by Creativia with the seventh—The Widow’s Son, completing a three book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? and Once I Was A Soldier. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada, and Australia.  Although it's true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising that first novel of his. He continues to write novels, poetry and the occasional quote; this one is taken from the beginning of Once I Was A Soldier There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.
