Sisyphus moments ...

Have you heard of Sisyphus; unless you are up on your classics (which I am not), then it is possibly unlikely.

In super short summary mode : Sisyphus was a king, whom on annoying the Gods by being a bit of a cunning devil. Was condemned to an eternity of rolling a rock to the top of a hill, to have it shoved back down again.

In every day life, do you encounter Sisyphus moments. Either personally, or watching others. Where a metaphorical rock, once rolled to the top of some notional hill, gets shoved down to be rerolled, rerolled and rolled again.

In national education, on a number of levels, there are often Sisyphus moments.

Are you rolling that rock? Will some national effort, notional development or mad idea from sources unknown kick that rock back down the hill.
