Create & Destroy

Create and destroy. 

Having been somewhat hooked on ancient mysteries and ancient civilizations all my life, I love watching the programs associated with it.  

One thing that seems to ring true no matter what program one watches is the destruction of the human race. The rise and fall of civilizations and their decimation along the timeline. It seems that no matter how big or powerful a king or a leader gets, they either get overthrown or killed.  

It seems that no matter what era of civilization one focuses on, the result is destruction. It is a constant throughline from the Sumerians to today’s war in Ukraine.  


This is what I have been thinking of for a long time now. Why is peace impossible to achieve? I would have always bet that it was money, power and greed. However, looking back in history it seems that the killing never ended.  

For sure there were riches beyond belief in the old days. But how did we place such value on worthless rocks/gems like diamonds? How did we end up putting metals before crops and food? 

How did we end up with business and greed being the things we want the most over health and wellbeing?  This puzzles me. It would seem that anyone with a logical mind could place health and wellbeing over riches and fame. Maybe not, but in the end, I bet they would regret the choices when an individual was on their death bed. 

Before the bible. 

Even before the bible… Let’s not debate this but we all know the dinosaurs and all were around long before the bible. But certain teachings in all religious texts make sense and many do not.  Therefore, it is clear and logical to conclude that even then with all the religions being at their strongest, terrible things happened. Some in the name of religion and some not.  

Though most wars in the old days would have been fought in the name of God. Either way, it seems that we have been waging this battle for thousands of years. We all say we want peace but no one ever truly wants it.  

All good until? 

Everyone wants peace, yet no one goes all out and makes it happen. Why not? Too much politics and way too much religion involved. No one wants to give in. They fear that they will lose and the other party will come and have the upper hand or be backstabbed.  

Nothing will ever change on earth until there is a monetary value placed on things. Business will always rule and money will always be the end goal. Every single thing is monetized and therefore we are the slaves to the world we have created. But going back in time, how did this all evolve? My guess would be, that once we settled and we no longer acted as a hunter-gatherer society, this system was set in place. Since then, it has become a convoluted system that has been etched into our DNA.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
