“‘Be kind…’” / Memorable Fancies #2063

[“…the hermeneutic temptation: the search for some deeper meaning or message…” – Slavoj Žižek, Disparities]

Hermes was the messenger of the gods; and if his message was too clear, not obscure enough – the people were not satisfied.

“Be kind to each other,” Hermes said, “on this day of all days.”

But the listeners muttered to themselves “What does that mean? It must be some kind of allegory!”


>> A joyous Christmas to you all! [what did he mean by that?] >>
