As luck would have it ... there is today a great newspaper article about Albert Camus in "The American Daily" just in this moment when I decided to publish something about him, for Albert Camus has been my preferred virtual mentor when I was young and his philosophy is a fundamental basis for the understandig of the disastrous and dangerous development of the global life nowadays.

As the article "Reassessment Of The Work of Albert Camus" (by Murray Soupcoff) shows, Albert Camus' ideas are up to date as before

It seems to me that this MAN had a few good thoughts

"Camus would not take the easy way out intellectually, by abandoning all notions of morality and ethics in politics for the sake of the ultimate good (the revolution)."

Im not sure if murder is acceptable loss to acheive ULTIMATE GOOD, but i do know that when one wants something, especially a dream, he must not let any being or event budge his convictions and his course to acheive that which he seeks.

to Elovesu:
You are right, Elmo, when you say that one who wants to realize his dreams should try to achieve his intentions unflinchingly, provided that the conformance of his dreams won't inflict damage on the fellow-men, on the "general public" ...

That is our opinion who we want to believe in peace and freedom, but even the contempory history is demonstrating the controverse of this idea.

Albert Camus, who tried to analayze the phenomenons of "crime", "murder", "political crimes" and "wars" says in his essay "Neither victims nor executioniers" :

"... We live in terror because persuasion is no longer possible... because man can no longer tap that part of his nature, as real as the historical part, which he recaptures in contemplating the beauty of nature and of human faces...

We suffocate among people who think they are absolutely right, whether in their machines or their ideas.

And for all those who can live only in an atmosphere of human dialogue... this silence is the end of the world."

to Elovesu:
Thank you for your laudation in public, Elmo, I thank YOU for being MY FRIND!

Since you joined my life even the darkest clouds have lost their threat!

I'll accompany you as long as you will have me around and I hope that our common destiny will always concede us the favour to elaborate our world of ideas.

This morning when I went to my work
a small poem crossed my mind.
Coming home I translated it in English and afterwards I'll publish it on my blog as a commitment to my friendship to you ... in public ...

If there are any translation errors, please correct me!


your frind, Castor - Hans

Thank you Pat, for one of your (now) scarce visitings on my blog!
As you can read I am one of the happiest men on earth since a few days when Elmo and I set the seal on a serious friendship.
It is so marvellous to tune in to the development of a very talented young man!

to Spencer:
Yes, Spencer, particularly then when it's about a man like Albert Camus, who inspired me a lot to have my own points of view to the world history in my early life.

And it is great now to see that he was right with his ideas.

I hope I'll see you next Sunday on my blog!

Love and Peace, Castor
