Navalny: the right of a mother to cry over her son's body

Navalny: the right of a mother to cry over her son's body

Venanzio Postiglione (Corriere della sera). From Herodotus to Sophocles: the sanctity of death, of pain, of a tombstone, is stronger than anything. More than one call. More than a prayer. A scream. This breaks our hearts. Alexei Navalny's mother addresses Putin directly: "I would like to see my son." He asks to caress the dead body for the last time. Civilizations and necropolises were born together. "In peace, sons bury their fathers, in war, fathers bury their sons," wrote Herodotus. A regime lives in eternal conflict and is responsible for the lives of political prisoners: without waiting for the answer of doctors and judges. Who knows how long Lyudmila Navalnaya will wait. In the Iliad, the Greek Achilles, the invincible (and wild) hero, kills Hector, the defender of Troy, and drags the corpse around the walls. A cruel scene. Old Priam then leaves the city, enters Achilles' tent: kisses his bloody hands, asks for Hector's body. And the brutal hero surrenders. He thinks about his father and cries. Today we call it empathy and talk about mirror neurons: Homer knew this thousands of years ago. The Iliad ends with a funeral and tears, the guns are silent. The sanctity of death, of pain, of a tombstone is stronger than anything. In Sophocles' tragedy, Antigone seeks the body of her brother Polyneices. Who had surrounded the city of Thebes and , according to the law, did not deserve burial. And she fights, despairs, and finally kills herself for that denied corpse. Antigone unwittingly invents universal law: we still quote it today, whenever the reasons of humanity prevail (must prevail) over those of reality. In the book "Putin's Russia", 2005, Anna Politkovskaya had already understood and written everything. In the first pages, Nina Ivanovna Levurda is also looking for a body. "She is a mother without children. Worse: it's a mother who doesn't know the truth about her son." She will knock on all the doors, for the boy killed in Chechnya, asking until exhaustion: "Are you or are you not a human being?". Anna Politkovskaya was killed on October 7, 2006, on Putin's birthday. Greek researcher Albin Lesky wrote that the meeting between Achilles and Priam "represents the beginning of Western humanism". But we have lost someone. Translated: by Jak Simoni.
