10.4.2022 – man against power

man against power
is struggle of memory
against forgetting

The quote this is based on is “the struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting”, is from the book, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, a novel, published in 1979 in France, by Czech writer Milan Kundera explores the basic human nature of how people tolerate the torture and suffering of which they have no control.

Milan Kundera is a Czech writer who went into exile in France in 1975, becoming a naturalized French citizen in 1981. Kundera’s Czechoslovak citizenship was revoked in 1979, then conferred again in 2019.

Kundera’s best-known work is The Unbearable Lightness of Being.

Mr. Kundera works towards the point that people tend to forget their past and we learn nothing from history.

I know of lots and lots of Politicians who bank on this.

As Idgie Threadgoode asked, “You a politician, or does lying just run in your family?”
