Carpet of Promises

Roman Minin's avatar Roman Minin

Carpet of Promises. Promises, vows, covenants, pacts, agreements, contracts, loans, marriages and rituals are mechanisms that bind our society together. They are expressions of our relationships with God, others and self. Responsibility to keep promises is the easiest and most convincing motivator that invigorates and inspires to heroism. Public promises approved of by the majority of society have the potential to dominate the decision-making process and shape important decisions that will affect both individuals and the community as a whole. In my opinion, they are the number one tool for manipulating society. The worst political scenarios the neighbouring ex-Soviet countries could only imagine are becoming a reality, and this is because the promises are diametrically opposite. Common sense gives way to any foolish public promise made in the heat of passion.
