[eerie similarities]

Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • I loved that book…all 600+ pages of it. It was slow going at first but then really picked up and kept my interest. I’m sure this is much closer to home for you than me. But you might say there are some eerie similarities going on in our country as well. Churches siding with the government in the most recent Supreme Court decision. Arrrrrgh! Your countryman, Caleb Suko, put it well when he wrote about persecution (which will be coming since we have opened Pandora’s Box).

    • I haven’t read the full one, I’ve got the student edition from BookLook Bloggers. But it’s a good one too (not to mention, the English is easy in it, so I got Sam reading it too, to improve his English.)

      The Supreme Court’s decision is all over the news everywhere, including Ukraine. Some of my friends have changed their Facebook avatars to the rainbow ones and I keep asking “Why?” They shrug and say it’s like the “fashionable thing to do” and “we should love everyone, despite their differences.” I agree with the latter saying, but I still wouldn’t support that thing.

      When I was writing the paper on postmodernism, one thought jumped out at me (since I was writing the paper around the time the law was passed) – PM are tolerant to everyone (supposedly) except for the ones who think they know the truth (aka Christian.) So, LGBT are loving everyone, except for the ones who don’t agree with them. *Facepalm*

      • Facepalm exactly sis. I have often said (and written): “Those who want tolerance soon become the most intolerant when you don’t agree with them.” i stand by that.

  • I guess when it comes down to it all these evil people just learn from each other and repeat the same schemes one or two generations apart.

    • What’s that saying… History repeats itself? Hopefully, it will not come to a WWIII. That’s my hope right now.

      • No we don’t want WWIII but history does have a way of repeating it’s self.

    I read that excerpt to R but replaced a few of the words:
    Hitler became Putin, German speaking became Russian speaking, Austria became Crimea, Czechoslovakia became Ukraine, etc. “Does this sound about right?” He replied no, it didn’t, but I said, “Well, from Putin’s perspective?” and he agreed. Then I told him that wasn’t actually what you wrote. Crazy, huh?

    • Mmm hmmm… I wonder if Putin really thinks he can do it the same way…
