Woody Allen’s Probable Assessment

In light of today’s "Major Escalation of violence in the Middle East, Woody Allen’s thought might be apt counsel.

More than at any time in history mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness, the other to total extinction. Let us pray that we will have the wisdom to choose correctly.

Thing is, Woody Allen has it exactly right. He has described the natural outcome and the futility of the reciprocal violence of a "mimetic crisis"…warring brothers, mirror images of each other, locked into mutual destruction. May God help them. May God help us.

  1. yes but is it realistic expect that nations can play by pacificist rules when destruction is the goal of their neighbours?

    It is arguably the correct thing for individual Chrsitians to offer their neck to the persecutors blade but can those charged with the responsibility for the safety and protection of it’s citizens (or of an individual’s family whether he is a pacificist or not) to lay all their people’s or family’s necks on the chopping block?

  2. But we should hope, pray and work towards the day when Martin Luther King Jr.’s prophecy is realized.

    “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.”

    Thy kingdom come……..

    it might take a little more evolving and unfolding revelation before we get there.
