The EAGLE and the BEAR
Once upon a time a mad eagle and an insane bear lived at odds
in an enchanted forest. The bear ruled the ground like a monster,
and subjugated the other creatures of the ground by satanic
"miracles" which he could perform. The eagle ruled the sky, and
oppressed the other inhabitants of the sky in the same beastly
manner as the bear ruled the ground.
The eagle was fearful and jealous of the bear. In response
the bear was fearful and jealous of the eagle. With his words the
bear claimed to worship the Mother Earth, while the eagle professed
homage to the Father Sky, but in reality, both beasts worshipped
pride, greed, and flesh. Because of their different perspectives
of the enchanted forest, they had no communication, and could reach
Because of their misunderstanding, the mutual fear and
animosity of the two monsters grew and grew. One day the eagle
called fire from "heaven" onto the lair of the bear, and the bear
conjured fire from the "earth" to the aerie of the eagle. The
monsters and their offspring were consumed in the fire; their bones
rotted and stank.
Though many inhabitants of the enchanted forest suffered, LIFE
in the ENCHANTED FOREST went on without them.
The EAGLE is the United States.
The BEAR is the Soviet Union.
The MIRACLES are the destructive application of technology.
