Of Novel Nobelties

It has been “awarded to all 500 million EU citizens”. Should I congratulate the Polish girl sitting just beside me and text my friends to praise them for being a part of this wonderful achievement: Peace does not come easy (just as words sometimes) and it’s not cheap either. And what about those (us) who aren’t citizenzs (but still pay taxes)? What about those without “a document” but that have largely contributed to make the life of others more pleasent and livable? What does this new Nobelty means for them (us)? How should we feel about it?  Should we greet it with applause or derision?

Why? Who knows… Do you?
