OP-ED

Planning is required, not Kantian hope!

The Russian writer and political philosopher, the forgotten dissident, Andrej Amalrik, when he explained the fall of the "Pax Romana", he showed how it did not happen in one day, but gradually: when goats were seen in the Roman Forum (the center of power at the time of Rome), Roman global rule has met with history

The parade as a show to show that others were not intellectual

With the intellectual parades of the prime minister of Kosovo, I was sometimes surprised by the reason for his strenuous efforts to appear simultaneously as an elite intellectual and a politician. This in itself does not imply anything wrong when the presentation is dedicated to the internal gallery, in order to maintain political legitimacy. In this sense, the intellectual level of the gallery is of no importance, which most certainly did not understand if Caravaggio was the only one who applied the light and shadow technique in painting, - the end, even the prime minister himself did not seem to be clear; also, it was not clear to the members of the gallery, for sure, whether Noli and Konica belong to the writers of the Albanian Renaissance. The situation turns out to be different, however, when the enthusiasm for self-presentation in the face of the intellectual crosses national borders and, moreover, in the event that it takes place in Thessaloniki, with Aristotle as the object of conversation, on the sidelines of an international gathering; or, recently, in Spain, with Kantin as the subject of discourse. We are not talking about Immanuel Kant of classical political philosophy, but Kant of the utopian idea of ​​the (Christian) European federation. Imagine, now, how Spain, the most Christian country and the greatest spreader of Christianity, must have felt, found out after the Roman Empire!
