"Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;
Whose misadventur'd piteous overthrows
Doth with their death bury their parents' strife." Billy Shakespeare
2 houses. Capulet and Montague. Captured in strife. Torn by politics. Families at war to the point of no return. Billy was the official poet of the human race. He framed stories and plots capturing themes that remain, as relevant today, as they did in the 16th Century. Two star crossed lovers, risked everything and starred in an epic story of rhyme over reason. They lost all perspective and died together in a tragic love bubble.
The 'Bard of Avon' is simply illustrating society with a brilliant pen. The double house Westminster adversarial system is a basic Shakespearian plot. The war of ideals between two parties is playing out across the world as we speak. Here's an idea. Stop the warring parties. Stop murdering beautiful young things with irrational weapons.
Romeo and Juliet couldn't see any other way out, there was no lifeline back then.
Let's learn from our past.
