Religions in React

Just read 'Hannes' for Hermann Hesse and it made me reflect on religion not only as the action, but the reaction. The response rather than initial statement. Sometimes that response is hope. Sometimes it is fear. At a utopian stage, it is an equilibrium of many answers. In Hannes, religion responds with hope to a city facing death and extinction, but that hope is too much. It is out of control. And because of it, people lose faith. It made me think of fear, hate, love, etc. Think of the reactiveness of religions to turmoil, and its impact on faith.

How to Build a Country 101


Stand still. Establish your center of existence. Build a wall. A distant and very large wall. Imagine your fears. Your worst biggest darkest fears. Toss your fears beyond the wall.
