Until not long ago, as I watched the Lieberman antics, I was locked into the pseudo-Christian dilemma of trying to decide if what he is doing (or pretending to do) was moral or immoral. I was convinced I could think of it all in terms of right and wrong. Eventually I came to realize that I was barking up the wrong tree.
The problem is that this tree has NO ROOTS. Lieberman is neither moral nor immoral: he is simply AMORAL. His thoughts and actions have no substance. He is an over-paid entertainer, a showman, who plays for money, grins and giggles - mostly for his own amusement. Sadly, beneath the garish mirth is untold misery because he is a hollow man. He is masquerading as public servant, when in truth of fact, he is a parasite. In leech-like fashion, he has attached himself to the artery of the public employment roles and sucks it drier and drier every day.
Public life for Lieberman is a sordid circus. He loves the center ring, the brass band and the elephant parade, loves to play the clown and sell nutritionless popcorn, but wants no one to know the animals in the cages out back are starving and diseased.
Lieberman is a morbid and dangerous monument to the moribund face of what the crumbling edifice of what democracy is becoming. He is a harbinger of terrible times to come. I guess everyone needs someone to look down to.
If Lieberman is allowed to proceed and continue unchecked, then we deserve whatever we get. And we will have no one to blame but ourselves.
Any moment now, I expect to see the Connecticuit Israeli Police coming to arrest both of us.
