Next comes Suicide. Who knew a 60s Steppenwolf cut would apply 44 years later.
I read Steppenwolf, Herman Hesse, not sure of your music reference. The book was depressing and no wonder Hesse committed suicide, sadly. But how does this apply to us? Just asking? We are not surrendering to the Wolf from the Steppes, neither in their political garb, nor in our inner hearts, which are beating strong in the love of liberty. Just asking, ok, as I want to better understand your reference.
Der Steppenwolf “It is a discourse on a man who believes himself to be of two natures: one high, the spiritual nature of man; the other is low and animalistic, a “wolf of the steppes”. This man is entangled in an irresolvable struggle, never content with either nature because he cannot see beyond this self-made concept.” Wiki or course, as well as my memory of having read it a long time ago — so here goes:
Note: the Wolf from the Steppes is the primeval evil; aka in this situation, PROJECTED UPON (from the primeval Wolf of the Steppes within) Congress, Palin, Lee, Cruz.
When der Steppenwolf, when Hesse, recognized that the Wolf from the Steppes was more from the inside than a threat from without, he / they committed suicide. The external enemy was a chimera, the real Wolf came from within, a truth that when / if realized is devastating. I felt badly and sad for der Steppewolf, and for Hesse, for despair and suicide are not the answer. But for the intellectual honesty of der Steppenwolf and Hesse — they have that over Pelosi, Obama, Reid etc. They continue to project their inner Wolf from the Steppes, onto . . . Honorable Veterans, etc. So sad. If they were to come to the intellectual honesty that der Steppenwolf and Hermann Hesse did, they might have to take responsible actions for the benefit of This Great Nation, that might amount to political suicide — don’t worry that they would go farther than that as they do not have the intellectual honesty and intellectual fortitude to go that far. I pray for them. What else can one do?
