    Remember Apokalypse Now: The US army bombing a vietnamese village under the sounds of Wagner's Walküre: tam-ta-tam-taaa-ta, tam-ta-tam-taa-ta... It might give you a feeling of heroism: the mighty officers in the helicopters crushing the little vietcong like ants, accompanied by pompous music. But it's cruel nonetheless and so it was in Gaza. There are good reasons to be careful with metaphores in general. For example diseases are also used as a metaphore in politics: "the cancer that has to be excised". Talking about a country like about a disease is a rhetorical technique of dehumanization aimed at facilitating and justifying war. Besides, using diseases as metaphores is mean towards people who actually suffer from a disease, because it gives their disease a quality of greater dimensions: "the evil is inside him". But cancer is a disease and aids is a disease and the carriers can very well be decent and loveable human beings despite the idiots who use diseases as metaphore

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
