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.
