In a way, could not the last act of South Korean former President Roh Moo-hyun be considered as like a scene from a play written in words … most satirical?
For one who rose to the heights of power did, surely, prove that from such heights one can fall very quickly.
And the ex-President (in case there remained any who might misunderstand the deeper meanings behind such an act) showed all his great audience what can come about from power by jumping himself from the physical mountain top parallel of the powerful heights (representing such magisterial places) to the quite literal … hard ground … beneath.
Did not the ex-President's final act prove, then … to be … a satirical masterpiece (for the world's contemplation) after all?
