Europe – condemned by Zeus, cursed by Nemesis
itself in exactly the same form that it was the day before, being as it is, bound,
by invisible and silent chains, to the rock of the past, and unable to escape
from it. And Europe has so fallen in love with
itself that it is unable to see this. Thus will the past become the future!
Thus once more will
unleash upon its citizens and the world, yet more of the horrors for which it
is infamous. You doubt this? Well look again and you will see that the process
has already started and as Europe’s social, economic and political conditions
deteriorate, and the world begins to engage more intensely in resource and
ideologically driven conflicts, thus will Europe retreat further into that
which is comfortable and reassuring – the place known as the past.
But this does not have to be, for a different future is possible. The past is Abrahamic. The seven Abrahamic belief systems I have already mentioned (in earlier blogs), including the four secular ones of Western Science, Western Atheism, Western Capitalism, and Western Communism, all of which have inflicted upon the world their dogmas and the horrors that go with them, although those caught up in these dogmas are too consumed by them to know this. Ordinary people however are free to turn away from these dogmas and to choose a different future – a Taoist one. Unless
changes and embraces the Tao, then its future will be its past.
This nicely brings me to next week’s blog, which is about my novel – Moments in Time.
