Palmyra: Islamists exposing the total void in western values. [OR: Let it burn. Let it burn…]

Palmyra is now in the hands of IS. (1)

Soon, any monument there will be history.

And while islamists kill, rape and destroy down here on the ground, the civilized West will be bombarding them from the air…

The once Christianic Europe, the cradle of civilization, is now just a… void ready to be filled in with islamists. Never before had the lack of values in the “progressive” atheistic/ hypocritically christianic West been so decisively crucial and so symbologically clear. For oil we went for war at the end of the world. For raped girls and destroyed monuments, well… who cares? Right?

And like this, a catastrophological mania consumes me.

The urge to see the Acropolis torn down, the Colloseum destroyed stone by stone, the Hagia Sophia burned to the ground, the Mona Lisa (if this thing can stand in the same sentence with the previously mentioned monuments) re-painted in black, the… whatever important monument England has (besides the stolen Greek statues and the Stonehenge which was built in the 20th century) destroyed…

Who cares after all? Right?

Pass me the popcorn please.

Luxor, a child, a monument, a society…

A 15-year old child defaced a stone sculpture in an ancient Egyptian temple with graffiti. [1]

Everyone is angry.

They should be.

We live in the past. We adore the past. We think in the past.

The past is all our society has. Too bad…

De-historization, De-Berlinization…

Berlin Wall… A memory… Forgotten…

A German property developing firm has removed parts of a historic stretch of the Berlin Wall amid heavy police presence, despite a week of protests. Builders removed four segments of the so-called East Side Gallery stretch on Wednesday morning to open access to a building site for blocks of flats.

 

Some 250 police officers were deployed as the sections were dismantled. The re-development project has sparked outrage among citizen groups, who say the site is a symbol of freedom. [1]

I was always wandering how old temples, walls and buildings were burried beneath leayers of other newer temples, walls and buildings… Now I see this de-historization hapenning in front of my eyes. Forgetting (Gr. Λήθη) is a much more important function of humans than remembering…

Iran, US, torture, finesse…

The revelation of a machine used in Iran for punishing criminals, has created a public outrage in the “civilized” world. (1, 2)

Of course! When will this “primitive” country stop using such crude devices?!? When will they start being more civilized like the US is? At last! When will countries like Iran learn civilization from us (and… US)?

Death in the “civilized” world (e.g. in the United States) is delivered with… finesse!

Look at the chamber of death above. Look at the finesse. Look at the high quality. Pure Civilization, don’t you think?

OK then.

Let’s make a war to spread it.

Church Bookstore, atheists, Netherlands, Money…

A church in Maastricht is tirned into a bookstore. (1, 2, 3) Atheists around the world (and in Facebook – see here) “celebrate” for the change! It is “good” since it gives life to a dead monument they claim. It is good because an unused monument finally has a use which benefits people, the say.

How much far from the truth are they…

First of all, 49% of people in Netherlands are religious. How can the 51% “decide” on such an important matter? A civilization is characterized on how it treats minorities (although it is really funny to speak of “minorities” due to the 2% difference here). Ana even if there was ONE religious person left, who authorizes the owners of the church to deny him a place to pray?

The cafeteria of the “bookstore”…

Secondly and MOST IMPORTANTLY: The use of monuments should never and under any circumstances be related to MONEY! Monuments are a part of our culture, a part of us, of who we are. We are not money or balance sheets! Netherlands has a very good history of being obsessed with money (yes, they gave up Anna Frank immediately when Germans asked and they now exploit the event to gain some extra money – there was no attempt to “hide” her, there was “resistance”). Even though selling money with interest was forbidden in the Medieval Times from Christianism, it was Dutch people who first defied that “order”.

No wonder they found “logical” to change a church to a bookstore.

If they were in Greece, they would surely change the Parthenon into a sauna to gain money.

Money.

MONEY is our God now!

MONEY MONEY MONEY!!!!

The “essence” of our “civilization!

Long live the “uncivilized”!
