When I was young, I particularly like to hear books being read by my litterature teacher. Of all the stories I like was "Macbeth ". This is a story of a gallant commander who won wars for then the King Duncan. His wife cannot wait for his turn to become king and decided to use witchcraft's advice to dethrone the King. She did and was briefly the queen, but her evil deeds haunted her and let husband king to be defeated.
" Is this the dagger I see before me " is one of the favorite lines . Imagine back those years Shakespeare have the plot to write the story. Sounds familiar today in many of our cases in our local news. Hollywood should come up with a superdupper epic , considering the high tech film production availablity and capablity.
Hmmm....I wonder what prompted this literary flashback....
Macbeth himself ought to bear the responsibility. He had a choice. By his own greed for power, he chose to heed his lady's direction.
Say, my batch studied Macbeth for SPM in 2003. Think if school students like myself were exposed to politics then, we would have scored better. There would be real-life references and examples to look at. Hah!
Act 1. Scene 2. A balmy place.
When shall we three (or 4 or 5, or 6, or 20) meet again?
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?

Agreed Yvonne...one would certainly find it hard to define the line between literary debate and real life political exploits.
If it proves anything, it will be this, that no matter what day and age, race nor creed, the Seven Deadly Sins are constantly Man's shadow through time. Only names and places differ.
The story remains the same.
