LUCIFER AND PROMETHEUS



Prometheus means " forethought " He was punished by Zeus, the highest God of the Greek Mythology, punished for stealing fire back after Zeus had taken it away from men and bringing it back to men..

Lucifer is another name for the devil and it means nothing else than " light bearer " ... he was the highest archangel in heaven, but he was motivated by pride and greed to rebel against God and was cast out of heaven, followed by a third of the host of heaven. He became the Devil, and his fellow angelic rebels were known as demons.

There is a common sence in these two stories:

NEVER REBEL AGAINST THOSE WHO ARE MIGHTY !

( This is a well thought out basis for each kind of dictatorship, I think! Isn't it ?)

Yes, but sometimes the hand which feeds you can be a bad hand! It's always better to be free! Isn't it?
