The land itself erupts on behalf of the people

The new volcanic eruption in Eyjafjallajökull has some interesting features.

It starts two days after the “Black Report” came out.

Similar to the “tourist volcanic eruption” at Fimmvörðuháls that came out at the same time as the IceSave discussion was at it’s peak after the national referendum.

How to compare volcanic eruptions to political hot topics.

Fimmvörðuháls is similar to the IceSave deal. Significant but small in the grand scheme of things.

Here are some fantastic pictures of that eruption.

Eyjafjallajökull is similar to the Black Report. Many times bigger than the first one, and can cause serious damage.

It is funny how the people do not react, they do not say anything, they don’t protest in the streets or anything when the news comes out about the whole financial and political corruption, incompetence and the madness of Icelandic society as a whole.

Pink Floyd said it best…. the Icelandic nation is “Comfortably Numb“.

Then enter nature. Iceland itself can feel the rage that is burning underneath the haze of denial and decides to show how the people really feel. It erupts twice in one year, the second one bigger and in proportion to the news the people are getting now.
