Island of Jahesa

I visited the ‘Island of Jahesa‘, yesterday…

… this is one of those magnificent, ancient places…

… where the scale of the architecture, and the mind-boggling effort and organisation it took to create it…

… was meant to show the little people how insignificant they were, before the might of the ruling elite and their supposed association with whatever fictional deity that elite claimed to be the representative of…

… and, of course, despite those deity being purely the invention of that elite, that elite really did have the power and organisational skills to create these staggeringly awe-inspiring monuments to their own arrogance and cruelty…

… and the little people would have been out of their tiny minds to be anything less than totally cowed by such grandeur on such a colossal scale…

… so it didn’t matter at all that the bloated aristocrats sucking the life from the people and the land represented nothing more than psycopathy and greed…

… their drive to create such monuments to their own hubris had the same result…

… as it would have had, had their invented gods been real. These assholes rose the top of the heap, forced their minions to create these astonishing places, ruled as though they, themselves were gods… until, one day, they didn’t.
