Summary/Abstract: This paper reflects on a contemporary time period, but that can sublimate as ambivalent fact, a double-edged fact denoted or questionable data which confirms that it is possible to reinterpret as unambiguous winning discourse and all, just all individuals from closer or further history, if it is missing critical will in the moral order of the mind. Or, even simpler, if there is no moral mind at all. In fact, one of the most notorious conqueror of Sarajevo, Prince Eugene of Savoy, who came into the capital of Bosnia 313 years ago burned it down, has been revived on a number of impressive video-posters (billboard) set in Vienna, now as the biggest pacifist, a philosophy fan and a patron of art; not suggesting in any way that his modern reincarnation in form of ode or one-way melody could mean something opposite for citizens and his former victims – an insult or pictographical blasphemy.
