El diálogo según un dictador / Rafael Cadenas

Dialogue According to a Dictator

Original Version: When I engage in a dialogue I don't want to be interrupted.

Second version: I'll engage in a dialogue, but I warn you I won't give up my position.

Third Version: In a dialogue, those who contradict me should recognize their mistake ahead of time.

Fourth Version: Having thought about it, I humbly opine that dialogue is unnecessary.
