SOMEONE ELSE

Rise and fall and rise

The more we empathize with the Third World War, the closer we get to the so-called the corona creeps up behind, more and more determined to show us that she is not done with us yet, let alone me with her. And yet, I can't believe that one can step into the same water twice

It was written a lot, since the spring, that Putin "abolished the corona", that the pandemic had to bend its tail before the murderous charm of his tanks and howitzers.

And really, who would still think of an already slightly debilitated scumbag in the form of a viral baby, when over there, in the wheat fields of unconquered Ukraine, the Third World War is slowly brewing? There seems to be a hierarchy among the horsemen of the apocalypse as well.

Not much has passed since then, only four months, but the world seems to have gotten a little tired of the Ukrainian war, in which there is neither a quick collapse of Ukraine nor a quick triumph of Russia, nor the other way around.

It is known that waging war is the most expensive thing in the world, but it seems that punishing those who started the war is not any cheaper either, at least not when they have so much oil and gas and grain, not to mention atomic bombs.

By punishing them, we will punish ourselves and suffer without guilt. Well, if it's for a just cause, sometimes it has to work out, and this is just.

The best proof that the Ukrainian army is slowly entering the phase of routine and destruction - and this is exactly what the aggressor and conqueror wants and what suits him in every possible way - is the renewed "growth in numbers" not only in Serbia and the surrounding area, but also in many places around Europe, especially eastern and southern.

In other words, the virus carefully follows the news and what is behind it, and Kanda has decided that it is time to slowly return to our lives, because our attention is already dangerously slacking on what distracted it from us last spring.

This "growth in numbers" is not yet dramatic, but it is steady. The preachers of the virus apocalypse immediately woke up with him, barely waiting for an opportunity to return to our lives.

Did you miss them? They are not for me, not in the least, but they are for themselves, and it shows. More precisely, it can be seen that they are hungry for new doses of publicity.

When you've been an everyday celebrity healer of doom for two years, who a worried public confidently asks if there's any chance of survival, it's not easy to return to anonymity and public insignificance. He wants his own self-image to suffer because of this, and that is hard to bear.

The war, however, will not stop even if the virus strikes again as hard as it struck when it was young and strong and healthy, and we were taken aback, powerless and defenseless.

The stakes are too high here, it is about a new rearrangement of the world, and by God, whether democratic orders will survive, proving that democracy is strength, not weakness and softness.

Or maybe they will cower and cower in the westernmost corner of Europe and probably in North America (if the Orange doesn't come back like a virus), dreading the moment when a secondary quasi-empire will deal them the final blow, before being devoured by a much more dangerous one. of a state-like virus from its southeast.

Until then, let's stop the geopolitics and get back to the psychology of the virus. The more we empathize with the Third World War, the closer we get to the so-called the corona creeps up behind, more and more determined to show us that she is not done with us yet, let alone me with her.

And yet, I can't believe that one can step into the same water twice.

In front of the seen scenes of real danger for the world and for man - and that danger is another man - how many of us will be ready to be scared enough to agree to go through that theatrical and exhausting corona ritual that marked two or three years of our lives?

Make sure you don't see and don't be seen, don't go here, don't go there, don't then, don't now, don't go anywhere and never with anyone, tremble in your shelter until the devil comes for you: how many more of us will be obedient if That starts again on our already increasingly cramped lives?

I can't even imagine it. Although that is unimportant - what matters is whether I can imagine others being able to imagine it. And I think I can, although I'm not sure about that anymore.

Meanwhile, Putin continues to keep the corona under control in Russia and Ukraine.

Why? Because no one cares if the "numbers are up" there.

Some other arithmetic is in effect there. This should concern the rest of us the most, because much more depends on it, but man is a strange creature: he mostly chooses to be afraid of less terrible things, in order to suppress from consciousness those behind which the abyss of hell gapes.
