"Watch out!" the déjà vu...

What we are experiencing in today's society arise as a déjà vu after reading Egon Friedell when he depicts the Nazi regime of 1933:

"... Every trace of nobility, piety, education, reason is persecuted in the most hateful and base manner by a bunch of debased menials."

Those traces can be sight when Egon Friedell committed suicide to flee from the persecution of the " bunch of debased menials

"...On 16 March 1938, at about 22:00, two SA men arrived at Friedell's house to arrest him. While they were still arguing with his housekeeper, Friedell committed suicide by jumping out of the window. Before leaping, he warned pedestrians walking on the sideway where he hit by shouting "Watch out! Get out of the way!"

Today the regime is the same but with other denomination and other "bunch of debased menials" ...the victims are still the innocent human beings, victims of heinous crimes...for which I, shall say "Watch out!..."

The scribes and pharisees...

“Num país que sofre de violência endêmica, a atitude dos vingadores é até compreensível...O Estado é omisso, a polícia desmoralizada, a Justiça é falha… O que resta ao cidadão de bem, que ainda por cima foi desarmado? Se defender, é claro...O contra-ataque aos bandidos é o que chamo de legítima defesa coletiva de uma sociedade sem Estado contra um estado de violência sem limite” Rachel Sheherazade

"For I say to you, that unless your goodness will exceed that of the Scribes and your justice abound more than that of the scribes and Pharisees..." (Mt 5,20)....you will never see justice...

The "stone"...

I am agnostic but in the other day I read something about the biblical story of Goliath/David and how David a "small" man has won the fight against the giant Goliath  just with is strength /courage and a stone...

"David’s triumph over Goliath has become one of the most beloved and well-known metaphors for the triumph of the righteous weak over a seemingly invincible oppressor..." http://members.bib-arch.org/publication.asp?PubID=BSBA&Volume=27&Issue=6&ArticleID=1
 
...and Human Beings are like "David" and they also seem small/weak/scared but just with courage/moral as a stone in the right time they will make some "giants"oppressors lose their head...
 
“…overwhelmed by sheer superiority force, but morally we can never be conquered, our spirit will remain unbroken because our conscience is clear...” Wilhelmina of the Netherlands

Yes, I'm little but... I can reach what I want!!! and...

Spectacle of self-delusion...

"...Oh, you noble Stoics, what fraud of words!..." F. Nietzsche

"...stoicism rest on the illusion of freedom when one is enslaved...illusions testify to the psychological power of imagination, but this power can exert itself only as long as the reality of the world and the living, where one is and appears to be either happy or unhappy, either free or slave, are eliminated to such an extent that they are not even admitted as spectators to the spectacle of self-delusion...

The moral code
...how one rules himself, he will rule others..."
 The Human Condition, Hannah Arendt
  
"It is a strange desire, to seek power, and to lose liberty; or to seek power over others, and to lose power over a man's self." Francis Bacon
