Promise of Love
Ever since the first human being fell on earth our physical bodies have been in danger. We have always been deeply in need for food and protection.
Few are able to survive on their own, so we are dependent on being a part of a community that provides both.
Fear of death, deseases, being abandoned has made us attracted by any promise of redemption, may it be a leader, a religion, a political utopia or the one and only with whom everything will be eternally alright.
`I feel the need to belong to systems´, I hear a young man say, sounds like an excuse instead of a bloody, inherent truth for every sentient being. There is no way out.
We do belong to systems and we have to to survive.
Thus the Promise of Love threatens us more then any other vow of redemption.
