Keeping Europe Divided.

Reader comment on item: A Historic Step in Austria?

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Apr 10, 2018 at 14:29

Many of the experiences of life are typically exercised in responses to pain, whether self inflicted in learning the limitations of this mortal life; or inflicted by others whose own learning of self inflicted wounds results in wanting to know why it is easier to inflict pain instead of learning how to love. Failure to learn love first is the proximal causal event to that end. It is endemic to the mortal condition.

History is rife with innumerable examples of the world in extreme agony of vast populations being exposed to this condition, yet for the context of this forum, focusing on one European society's sojourn through its decidedly dark days of the last century, the excruciating processes that the indigent population suffered, either being made subject to the tragedies being the perpetrators of the overall tragedy that this tale is witness to, not all of the inflicted pain can be told; for the tales are not ended, nor are they fully told.

Strangely, Vienna cannot be separated from the atrocities of the last century, just as the history book associates Vienna with the historical implications of previous centuries of the central cause of the extremes of humanity against humanity, European style. European history (and Austria seems to have one of the more compelling narratives to this assessment) tell of religious conflagrations more than they tell of the admonition of the LORD to love. No wonder the Islamists have an easy time conquering Europe......few, very few teach how to love instead. That's why isolation and division are done instead.
