David and Goliath has been done, and done again, and done so well, why should anyone even try to touch the subject after Michelangelo perfected the subject? Probably because the story speaks to everyone. We all want to feel that we can overcome obstacles, even if we are each just flies in the universe. We want to feel that right is might, even though the world is destroyed by power grabbing politicians, businesses, and other perpetrators who are just too big for any of us to defeat with a rock.
Which is, I suppose, part of human nature. We all want someone else to solve the problems, enjoy the benefits, and retain the right to criticize the people who try to fight the battles for us.
Someone said that the thing we fear the most is our own power. If we really recognize the power within ourselves, we would feel the obligation to live up to our abilities. That's really frightening. That means sharing our feelings, standing up for what's right, taking risks -- and when we dare to do those things, we have become the giants, and people will try to take us down so everyone remains on the same level. That way everyone can remain comfortable in their passive complaints about the world.
Let's fight the giants!
