Abstract

The paper explores destruction and diaspora as man-made events of folly, triggering cataclysmic events of entertainment that mirror diaspora as an issue of modern society, its migration, and issues of capital associated with the movement and treatment of peoples. It does so by referring to the Jewish concept of aliyah, or returning to the homeland, as a remedy to dispersions that are described in the Torah / Biblical Old Testament.
