Christmas Carol

Christmas is the only emotional event to cross country borders. To embrace half the world, maybe even more.

It's fake and confused, made up from a bulk of religious, pagan and commercial lore.
Everyone feels different about it and pretends everyone else feels just like he or she does.

It's incredibly powerful, but just a few realize it.

We're headed towards a big neverending christmas or extinction.
Christmas is the biggest invention of the XXth century, the one that no one noticed.

People need a reason to grow and a reason to unite... a feeling... and a victim.
They need a race... the moon race, the atom race, the BeBetter race.

Something to beat and a community to belong to.

Christmas is abstract and egocentric... you gotta be "better" and forgiving... score points. Whatever points.
The world is who you compare to... it's both your enemy and your fellow teammate.

Through anonimity you "christmas along" with everybody, even enemies.
You score small points ending up in the world wide pool because that feels just about right... feels like this was your nice and well tailored competition. Feels like you won.
You do as much as you could... maybe even nothing, but you're in.

I love the human nature. So dumb, yet so very much effective. :)
