Towering Figures and False Prophets

Speaking of both the historical and philosophical significance of towers, there have been towering figures in human history, who have profoundly impacted our lives. Just after finishing writing this book, US Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who at 5’ 1” (155 cm), was considered one of them, died and instantly became, in spirit, a perfect political lightning rod, as the battle over control of the Supreme Court suddenly posed a critical threat to human rights.

Shortly afterward, Trump replaced her with another woman, whose values and priorities, undermine everything that Ginsburg stood for, as she was rushed through a Senate hearing just prior to his opportunity to become reelected to a second term, with her presumed help, if needed, to overturn the will of the electorate. At precisely the same time, the Polish Supreme Court passed a new draconian anti-abortion law that drove women into the streets again.

Another such individual, of far more arguably dubious distinction, Vladimir Putin, was nominated shortly after, as a possibility to win the Nobel Peace Prize, something Donald Trump was said as well to be after.

If hypocrisy is the name of the game, they both certainly deserve it, one having invaded Crimea, the other having attempted to withhold vital military equipment, as an extortion plot against Ukraine’s new president.

The inescapable question is: to what extent will the human race continue to fall for the deceptive mischaracterizations of corrupted priests, presidents and false prophets and at what expense?
