Decálogo de William J.H. Boetcker (1916)

Decálogo significa "diez palabras". Este decálogo pertenece al reverendo William J.H. Boetcker (1873-1962), que lo publicó en 1916. El decálogo se hizo famoso cuando lo citó en 1992 el entonces presidente Ronald Reagan, adjudicándoselo erróneamente a Abraham Lincoln, lo cual fue graciosamente destacado por la prensa, como muestra del despiste mental del ex actor.

La confusión de Reagan, se supo después, se debió a que el Comité para el Gobierno Constitucional publicó en 1942 un panfleto titulado “Lincoln on Limitations” que de un lado decía conocidas palabras de Lincoln, y al dorso estaban las ahora famosas “Ten Cannot” (”Diez No Puede”, porque cada frase comienza “You cannot” = Usted no puede) de Boetcker, pero en el folleto juntaron la atribución de las citas a Lincoln, generando el error.

Promulgado hace ya casi 100 años este texto dio pie a la Declaración de los Derechos de las Naciones en la ONU, lo que le da vigencia y hoy más que nunca cobra interés en los actuales tiempos que vivimos.

What you posted was very logical. However, think about this, suppose you were to create a awesome headline?
I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added something that grabbed folk's attention?
I mean "Dec�logo de William J.H. Boetcker (1916)" is kinda boring.
You might glance at Yahoo's front page and watch how they write post titles to grab viewers to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab people excited about what you've written.
In my opinion, it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to
go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
