Yesterday was been a strange day; after watching a movie that took place in Paris (La Belle Personne), news started rolling in what was going on in the real, current Paris.
My heart goes out to the people in Paris and France in general for this dreadful day. What drives people to try and impose a freedom-less world is difficult to grasp. Frustration, anger, jealousy perhaps. An overflow of testosterone, a desire for power by destroying one’s self (both literally and figuratively, paradoxically). We can never surrender to such a stance, since that means life is no longer worth living. And with all that brain power that all of us have, surely it’s not difficult to figure out that this is not the road to any kind of viable society. The only way forward is to prevail. I always thought I’d see a war in my lifetime, I just didn’t imagine it to be like this.
