Gravity and Levity

One thought on “Gravity and Levity”

  1. The Roman emperors took levity to the extreme. The colosseums stood as monuments to that levity. The emperors lacked all moral perspective, resulting in a culture of death. Do we not have a similar set of playgrounds in Hollywood and other cultural outlets of shallowness and death? The recent releases about Planned Parenthood’s economic exchange of aborted babies exhibits the frivolity of out-of-place attempts at humor (the mention of a Lamborghini purchase) and stuns the senses. The irony is whether that exchange turns on profit or not and not on any sense of rightness. Depravity raised its head with the call to punish those who exposed this economy of death. Such is the twisted lot of the New Rome.
