What the Force Majeure Has Done
“Withdraw yourselves from man whose breath is in his nostrils, for in what merit is he to be esteemed?” (Prophets; Yeshayahu- Isaiah 2:22)
One of the first forces majeures described in literature can be considered the construction of the Tower of Babel. As we know, people wanted to get to heaven, but … builders suddenly ceased to understand each other, and the project was stopped. A typical force majeure.
This comes from history less ancient.
Alexander the Great did his best, fought. He conquered a territory from the Indus to the Danube, formed the largest country in the ancient world. And then, as it happens, there was a force majeure. Alexander was bitten by a mosquito, a virus carrier – according to one version, or was treated with poison – according to another. Whatever it was, the great conqueror died at the age of 32 – and that was all. The empire collapsed, and the planned campaign into China did not take place.
From recent history.
People built and built socialism, and then decided to rebuild it. And then there was a force majeure. And capitalism emerged.
By the way, why was socialism needed to be built and capitalism appeared by itself? Maybe it’s because the conditions were ripe for capitalism and not yet for socialism?
But back to our topic. How do we manage to live like this?
We are constantly in circumstances of force majeure, but prefer not to notice this. Even a classic is not a decree.
“’I beg your pardon,’ retorted the stranger quietly, ‘but to rule, one must have a precise plan worked out for some reasonable period ahead. Allow me to enquire how man can control his own affairs when he is not only incapable of compiling a plan for some laughably short term, such as, say, a thousand years, but cannot even predict what will happen to him tomorrow? ‘” (Mikhail Bulgakov, The Master and Margarita)
Seriously, in front of us, there is a special method of management that we don’t understand. Its essence is to be hidden from us – those who are governed.
Everything is under control, everything without exception. We have no doubts with respect to the still, vegetative and animate levels of nature. We have doubts with respect to ourselves.
At the time, the area of unexplained phenomena of nature included almost everything. From thunderstorms to gravity. Then, this endless cycle of ambiguities began to decrease.
Observation and discovery of laws of regularity have become a science. The human being began to feel, if not God, at least His deputy. Those phenomena which are not subject to the laws of regularity, he called a coincidence, an accident, an event, or even the fate of the force majeure. Once calmed down, and everything was back to normal.
How the human being manages to feel himself to be the boss when the infinite force majeure lives next to him is impossible to understand.
On the other hand, the perpetrators of force majeure can be seen by everyone.
“Any philosophy agrees,
that there is no escape from the Jews in the world,
science just still is not clear
how they make earthquakes.”
