The Hagia Sophia in Turkey was once the largest Christian church in the world. Today it’s a mosque. I think of Notre Dame de Paris with a crescent atop it. I imagine the Sistine Chapel whitewashed to satisfy the new rulers of Italy.
As with ancient Rome, one of the great lights of civilization is being put out as we watch. Replacing it is a culture which is without question one of the most violent and medieval on the planet. A culture which demolishes sculpture rather than creating it, bans literature rather than writing it, and is the source of nearly every military conflict ongoing in the world today.
The new Dark Ages will be illuminated by the light of Molotov cocktails.
Le Sabot took me by surprise… I agree with “Can you even fathom what is taking place?”
