Catch 22 sau pe culmile absurdului

„You mean there’s a catch?”

„Sure there’s a catch,” Doc Daneeka replied. „Catch-22. Anyone who wants to get out of combat duty isn’t really crazy.”

There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one’s own safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn’t, but if he was sane, he had to fly them. If he flew them, he was crazy and didn’t have to; but if he didn’t want to, he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle…

catch 22

Destul de adanca problema – si daca nu ar fi reputatia ei indoielnica, adica de schepsis cu care armata te prindea sa-ti duci la capat ingrata misiune de a zbura in misiuni sinucigase pentru a lichida ultimele urme ale inamicului, ar  fi o dilema filozofica savuroasa.

Nu am citit romanul lui Joseph Heller, desi auzisem de el cu mult inainte sa faca americanii serialul , dar asta doar pentru ca mie curiozitatea imi lipseste uneori cu desavarsire… aiurea, nu?

Si poate ca daca nu era George Clooney sa-mi starneasca interesul, nici nu m-as fi uitat la primul episod – ca doar atat am vazut pana acum. insa nu regret deloc ca m-am uitat – baietii si muzica anilor 40 fac toti banii! :))) si am lamurit si in ce consta celebrul Catch 22. intuisem eu ceva, cand cu pseudo-dilema mea daca imi pierd mintile ori ba / pai stai ca daca imi pun intrebarea inseamna ca nu mi le-am pierdut inca, deci si Catch 22 asta e undeva pe acolo, desi la nivel de US Army Air Forces, treaba e ridicata la rang de  norma institutionalizata.

Culmea absurdului de-a dreptul!
