I feel the recent events in North African countries are only the result of and a reflection of what dysfunction and morbid human psyche that remained so for four odd decades,could do to society.It is so ,be it in
There is a very strange anecdote on German blind penchant for adherence to the rule. In a remote intersection in the German Black Forest an automated traffic signal was placed. The motorists who went through the intersection were photographed by a remote camera. Ten out of ten motorists who passed by at various time stayed put when the light was red, even for as long as fifteen minutes, though it was apparent to them that vehicular movement in that part of the forest area was scanty. Opinions may vary. But the literal adherence to the rule has been in the German psyche.
Signs of ghoulish human mind have ample examples. The society we live in is in itself a perfect example. Even our homes, and people related or friends, and includes us as well. The fact is, besides the blind adherence, there is also a great element of disinclination or numbness and apathy.
But then I love armchair exploration, armchair philanthropy and armchair discourses. That serves me well! And I see my reflections in all that around. Or am I the alter ego of the society? Certainly I have company!
