    Fata morgana – mirage

    2 תגובות   יום ראשון, 20/9/09, 10:35


    There are times in which one feels like roaming in a desert, thirsty for a drop of water. He spies an oasis with palm trees, green pastures not far off, he even hears the sound of languid flowing water. On the verge of despair he moves on hopefully on all his fours, and ends up crawling exhausted, splashing in more sand, to realize that it was just a hallucination built in his own imagination.

    This metaphoric scene can change form and appear in anyone’s daily life. One doesn’t have to day dream, all he has to do is hope and neglect reality.

    It happened many a time in history, to individuals and to communities and nations led by such individuals, who insisted on dreaming of  “a peaceful world”, “new deal”, “new Middle East”, until reality slapped their faces.

    In the old times there were no idologies but conquer and expand, who ever is in the way is the enemy that has to be beaten and enslaved.

    In modern time idologies popped up, communism advocating equality and brotherhood, and was worse from the rule of the tsars; fascism promising a thousand year Reich, that brought in its wake the second world war; and in spite of these lessons, there are those who will do anything to appease the forces of evil, to no avail; seeking diplomating solutions to issues that demand resolution, threats and dire punishment.
