“If we are pawns of dark powers, then even our highest aspirations become a grim joke.” A Small Talent for War, The Twilight Zone
Life appears and grows, as if in defiance of entropy. In perhaps the most disturbing revelation in my reading on these matters, life instead can be shown to obey and even accelerate the process of destruction. It reminds of an episode from the new Twilight Zone series in the eighties, “A Small Talent for War“.
Unforgettable. The closing lines,
If we are pawns of dark powers, then even our highest aspirations become a grim joke. But if not, then no one will goad us toward world peace or take it away once we have achieved it. Doubters please note, you’ve just seen it achieved once, however briefly, in The Twilight Zone.
