History of the Sack of Potatoes, Western Civilization, The Scorpion King and "The Rock" wrestler and actor ... and some Racist Fools around us ...
If we work for a better world, with less violence, less Hate and less Racism, then our lives get a lot of meaning and we are not living like a sack of potatoes.
And talking about "sacks of potatoes" I found this in "the Free Dictionary" :
[Middle English, from Old English sacc, from Latin saccus, from Greek sakkos, of Semitic origin; see qq in Semitic roots.]
Word History: The ordinary word sack carries within it a few thousand years of commercial history. Sack, which probably goes back to Middle Eastern antiquity, has a long history because it and its ancestors denoted an object used in trade between various peoples.
Thus the Greeks got their word sakkos, "a bag made out of coarse cloth or hair," from the Phoenicians with whom they traded. We do not know the Phoenician word, but we know words that are akin to it, such as Hebrew aq and Akkadian saqqu. The Greeks then passed the sack, as it were, to the Latin-speaking Romans, who transmitted their word saccus, "a large bag or sack," to the Germanic tribes with whom they traded, who gave it the form *sakkiz (other peoples have also taken this word from Greek or Latin, including speakers of Welsh, Russian, Polish, and Albanian).
The speakers of Old English, a Germanic language, used two forms of the word, sæc, from *sakkiz, and sacc, directly from Latin; the second Old English form is the ancestor of our sack.
So it is reconforting to know that the word "sack" is Semitic and Akkadian like the popular child movies hero "The Scorpion King", with the wrestler actor "The Rock" ...
And so Western Civilization is the work of Many Cultures and Races .... and "Western Civilization" is not the private property of a Racist Little Group ....
And the Bible says : "The number of Fools is Infinite"
There are more fools that descendants from Abraham, he was blessed by Yahweh with more progeny than the stars of Heaven and the sands of the deserts.
