For the last two hours , I’ve been seeing on TV an ad showing how happy we are and how we can donate one day of our happiness to the 200 million kids dying from starvation.
Shocking and effective.
You just cannot help feeling guilty for the luck you had, and the misfortune of all those children doomed to death, just for having been born in the “wrong” place.
However, this is not the aspect I want to focus on. I’d rather aim at what I would call the “process”, and how some goals are pursued, and eventually accomplished.
I would like anyone to explain to me, why are there so many charity organizations doing the work they shouldn’t be?
Why are we accepting so easily that we are responsible for reverting the dramatic situation of the poorest countries in the world, BY OURSELVES, acquiescing to the fact that governments will never move a finger.
If we consent that, and we hold ourselves responsible for caring about others, then again, could anyone please explain to me:
WHY THE HELL ARE WE STILL SUSTAINING ALL THIS FAKE DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM?
WHAT DO WE NEED OUR REPRESENTATIVES FOR?
WHAT DO WE FEAR?
Why are we being so aware of the need to donate part of our income, to build NGOs, to empathise with our poorest brothers, and yet still BELIEVE in our democracies, that time and time again, proved not to be true?
Why these issues arise in my mind on a Friday evening?
