Book 10. Anasta (2010)
Power over the power
Influence on people - and the power here not an exception - can be rendered in the different ways. And the most strong of them - an image. People get used to absurd conditions and images, taking them for granted. There is an image that the power and including the State Duma where laws are developed and adopted, surely has to be in the center of the megalopolis. We so got used. But whether it is reasonable?
Where prophets received revelations? And where wise men reflected? From where they brought Divine laws?
Moisey. Received tables with "ten precepts", having retired on Mount Sinai. Christ. For forty days went to the desert. Buddha. Spent several years in the depth of the wood. Mahomed. For months stayed in a privacy in Hir's cave on Hyp mountain.
Philosophers and scientists too for years lived in a solitude - it is Confucius, Lao-Zi, Kant, Nietzsche and many others.
And where there is a building of our State Duma? Where write our laws, by the people the elected wise men? Remembered?
The building of our State Duma is at the intersection of brisk highways - whether it is possible to create more absurd conditions for work of people's deputies?
It that - the roadside Duma?!
