Not Only Civilized (part two)

What is civilization really? We look upon our selves as civilized creatures. We went to school, dress our selves properly and are house broken. Early civilizations began to overrule the so-called inferior species (primitives). For very civilized reasons of course: they would bring civilization according to what they thought it meant. If the inferiors were not supportive about their submission, the civilized would force civilization on them for the good off all (although, they claimed). Take the Romans with their silly manors and their frivolous outfits, they left us with roads, aqua ducts, drainage canals, politic systems and nice touristic sites all over Europe. But they also introduced slavery on a larger scale (note: they were not the first) they were decadent and thought they were superior to the under developed cavemen like Vikings, Germans, Hispanics, Gauloises and so on. To concur is to civilize. The Roman civilization collapsed on excesses, decadency, politic disputes and paranoia and finally ceased her existence. So much for the Roman Empire. With our very well developed intellect and civilization you could think that from then it was only upwards! And we would have learned from history. No such thing is true; later on many empires inspired on the Romans tried to concur in new ways, new strategies but according to the same dogma. We still commemorate the Second World War. Even after this war everyone was convinced that this (racism, fascism, genocide) could never happen again. Little did we know? This war was not the last war; it is unfortunately one of many and many more to come. A lot of new Roman empires with other names and appearances are growing and expanding. The motto: make war, and bring (our idea of) civilization is still very trending. So that rises to the question; what is being civilized really? I hope to find the answer some day…

Baby Einstein says,

When we look into our glass bowl and check the nearby future, we see that we are officially re- opened at Wednesday April 19 at 1600 hours. Renewed, refreshed & improved.

To quote Einstein: I look to the future because that’s where I’m going to spend the rest of my life”

Hope you spend it with us!

‘Not Easy Being Green’

It is not easy being green” is a famous quote from a green Muppet frog called Kermit. Kermit was referring to him self, his destiny wearing his green skin, and during romantic endeavours with miss Piggy. He suffered from self-pity in a very charming way. But his words covered a lot more, maybe more than he realized back in the happy Jim Hanson years.

It is ‘not easy being green’ > if you live in Russia and being critical to the corruption of Medvedev or the Poetin administration. Or being critical to the regime what’s so ever.

It is not easy being green if you are Turkish and not in favour of the rising new dictator called Erdogan.

It is not easy being green if you are a Muslim in a polarized world. Caught in between two extremes. Not Muslim enough for the Muslim fundamentalist, not western enough for the populist.

It is not easy being green if your name is Jesse Klaver, in for the race to the new ‘right’- ‘middle’ oriented Dutch cabinet. What’s there to win; a lot! What’s there to lose? His electorate> see what happened earlier.

It is not easy being green in a globalized world, with rapidly increasing populations and many mouths to feed.

But it might be the only reasonable thing to do.
