Where might the 'wrong track' lead? : Comments

By Alan Hart, published 22/3/2011

Repressive regimes in the middle east are not in the US's interest, but saying so might make them more likely.

Alan Hart,

Thanks for having devoted your attention to the economy of human feelings and its unenviable balance sheet that we have to face if we have any care about the future of our children and the kind of world that they have to face.

People robbed, insulted and humiliated by the greed and deceptions of the ones in power, often hope that ‘what goes around comes around’.

Does this hope mean that our children will have to redress the wrongs we now accept without rebellion?

Once a middle class, Jewish, man, just lucky to barely survive a Nazi camp, after long meditation realized that:

“The ascent of the Privileged, not only in the Lager, but in all human existence, is an anguishing but unfailing phenomenon”.

“It is the duty of righteous men to make war to all undeserved privilege, but one must not forget that this is a war without end”.

On this only statement he concluded his very life. His name was Primo Levi.

We, the Jewish, the Arabs, the Christians and the near totality of humans have sanctioned all lies and injustices with our acceptance and silence.

We are getting short of time.
