Lesson of the Plucked Chicken

 

During those final days of the collapsing Marxist experiment in the Soviet Union, Soviet novelist Chingiz Aitmatov retold the following story, which has been paraphrased here.

On one occasion, so it was narrated, Stalin called for a live chicken and proceeded to use it to make an unforgettable point before some of his henchmen. Forcefully clutching the chicken in one hand, with the other he began to systematically pluck out its feathers. As the chicken struggled in vain to escape, he continued with the painful denuding until the bird was completely stripped. “Now you watch,” Stalin said as he placed the chicken on the floor and walked away with some bread crumbs in his hand. Incredibly, the fear-crazed chicken hobbled toward him and clung to the legs of his trousers. Stalin threw a handful of grain to the bird, and it began to follow him around the room, he turned to his dumbfounded colleagues and said quietly, “This is the way to rule the people. Did you see how that chicken followed me for food, even though I had caused it such torture? People are like that chicken. If you inflict inordinate pain on them they will follow you for food the rest of their lives.”

Ravi Zacharias, Can Man Live Without God, (Word Publ., Dallas: 1994), pp. 26-27

That is disturbing, if that's a true story. lol

Funny story - this is Astrid, my EE. She is a very sweet bird, who has a special relationship with my daughters chi-pug mix, wally.

 

Wally likes to chase the birds... well Astrid realized that wally is playing games, and if you watch long enough, he chases her around, will stop and puppy bow and the next thing you know, he's being chased by her, and you just see this blur of silver waddle past you as she chases him circles in the yard.

 

I haven't quite figured out if she's playing the same game he is though, but since neither seems overly stressed out by the antics.... I've let them be.

 

She's quite the girl.
