Laying broken on the tower of silence



Bearing many a concern in my mind

couldn't sleep last night;

the night following the 22nd of July

when the election was held in my country..

As I watch the sunrise over my (still) proud city

I know neither was it the sun

nor were the days bringing the fate...

Ah, was it not a friend of mine

who had travelled far off seas

told me how you forget the count of days??

Now, Kant sounds so right!

how mortalsdaren't show the maturity

when it comes to fullfill their destiny...



Bahadır.

Beautiful. Yes we all have responsibility.

There is, if not exactly free will,

at least a free choice.

That we must postulate.

Otherwise the practice

may not be

what we want.

The good must arm itself.

Let´s hope it doesn´t have to be with physical weapons

Torgny, thank you for your insightful comment!



Actually,

if one does not deal with reality,

soon the reality will start to deal with him/her inevitably!



PS. I remember having read your admiration on Sartre in some earlier posts if my recollection is right

ThoughI find them (Sartre and Kant)incompatible on somesubjects Kant tending tosound somewhat dualist regarding the afterlife, (...and as Kantfinally concludesthe question ifreasoning couldsolve everything: 'No') his concise analitical approach andethics makes hima considerable 'architect' of Enlightment which is most important!

I do appreciate your synthesis here, Torgny : )
