Footnotes in history

Every nation rejoices in its temporal messiah. Eyes closed, the moment becomes sacred. Dissenters are renegades, despised. There will be a great clamour, chaos and confusion. But soon enough we will all be mere footnotes in history. Yet another dynasty long forgotten in the winds of time. But dust blown hither and thither. Who dares open a history book when called to sanctify the new politics? Who dares plea for pause for thought? We are on the cusp of a new era, a glorious past restored! This latest messiah will carry us to the promised land. Desist oh dissenter! Rejoice in your temporal messiah! Leave the lessons of the Book aside.
