Ravaging Times

volume 59

[Couplet Summary]
亂局回正軌 張弓射天狼
The chaotic scene is back on track; aim the bow at the Heavenly Wolf
(“…pull-back [the string of] bow [to] shoot sky wolf”)

趙子龍硬取貴陽 龐士元圖奪荊州
Zhao Zi Long seizes Guiyang by force; Pang Shi Yuan schemes to take Jingzhou

During the Three Kingdoms period, Pang Tong liked to critique people’s character to nurture their standing amongst their peers. However, he would often exaggerate the positive. He explained that praising a good role model can improve the public morals. This age-old attempt to civilize humanity, to separate mankind from wild animals, has been changing in today’s society. Perhaps Pang Tong was pretentious, but without such notion, what will happen to the world when people are inherently evil (selfish/vicious/malevolent)?

[Next On Ravages]
I want to love, but it’s not in my fate.
I want to hate, but I’m out of emotions.
(not sure)
I want to kill, but there’s no basis for it.
I want to stake my claim, but there’s no justification.

Who knew it is myself that I want to kill.
