"Very cool. And what do you think to Hobbes? Bit of a pessimist, really, isn't he? Haha. I did originally think you just meant Leviathan as in sea monster, but then I started to wonder if there was a connection with the book...
"Hahaha as a matter of fact I am familiar with Hobbes :) You're the first person to make the connection between the name and the book. Actually, when I picked the name, I wasn't even thinking of the book though, I was thinking of the…"

OUT of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word "happy" would lose it's meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.

i read jung years ago. i do believe we have too study histoty, not a schooltype studying, all history though, not just scapegoating one event, culture ectr.
as for perfect world i have given up on that i'll settle for halfway decent
it's partly a generational thing. when i grew up nobody talked about it. nobody new anything, every soldier was at bthe eastern front. to say that made me mistrust the older generation is an understatement.
for all i know my uncles could have been concentrationcamp guards.
only now am i getting some distance. the refusal to take responsebillity though made it worse for me. i know people got manipulated,but if you just blame one person or a small group your missing the point. in fact i tend to agree with LIZ GREENE, she is a jungian psichologist and astrologer[ not the kind you gind in magazine, totally different thing], yhat the collective unconcious was moving in tyhat direction and hitler became the receiver/amplefier who got the ball rolling. that doesn't excuse him or any of the leaders, but if we want to move on as humans we must take responsebility.
i am now getting quite fed up though with the constant tv programs and films about the nazi's.
i feel it,s used to some degree to detract from other bad things ie. slavery.
england has yet to take any responsebility for the slavetrade or olonialism, and lets not even start on the good old USA.
