Anonymous Absurdity of a Squalor
14.12.2012 17:14I was reading again a Chinese landscape poetry of III-XIV centuries, enjoying the subtle play of perception, when my friends forwarded via Internet an anonymous article "Envy silently" from the newspaper the "Unique Abkhazia" in my address. In contrast to the poetic lines this text even called aback – you feel that the achievements of human culture for centuries have passed by the nameless author unknown. Generally offending anyone, without signing, is a bad tone and blunt cowardice. Why not openly and civilized to debate, as we did yesterday in the television show "Our Time" with the Sukhum chief architect David Eshba, which supports the idea of building a 14-story building in Sinop?
But most of all I was astonished by the final conclusion of this article - it appears that all of us who are concerned that the high-rise buildings can make the architectural appearance of the Abkhaz capital ugly, in fact, just primitively envy the owners of the argueable construction! Or, if you expose the true meaning of replica of the anonymous author, we envy those who have a lot of money. In some way, I do appreciate the anonymous author of this "fresh" idea, which made me to laugh heartily a few minutes.
My God, the poor anonymous author can not even imagine the richness of human thought and feeling, which accompanies a normal person in life! Money - is a good thing and a great invention, which freed humanity from the inconvenience of natural barter, but not the most important thing for a free man. As Maurice Jenkins says with her lovely Italian accent: "Life is much more than money."
But to understand this, one must have something deep in the soul, except envy to some rich people. It is so natural - to attribute to others one’s own shortcomings. And the anonymous accuses all of us what he is suffering. I imagine him sitting in front of TV and enjoying - as seeing in the TV the U.S. billionaire Bill Gates, the anonymous author at once seized by the orgasm of envy. Five minutes later, Abramovich is shown- another orgasm. And no need of Viagra!
It is a pity that such a necessary for our society discussion they are trying to lower on such a vile level. The concern for the architectural look of the city, the country can unite our society still divided by political split. Just now called me Ludmila Lola, the owner Pitsunda pension "Pine Grove", and also a member of the Public Chamber, and asked to invite to a session of PC on December 20 the Gagra architect - it seems that the problem of Gagra high-rise buildings is even more acute than in the capital. It is remarkable, if we discuss this problem is already across Abkhazia!
And finally, my friendly advice to the anonymous author and those who paid for his opus - really, it would be better to keep silent than to show others their misery.
