There is a scale of events or processes we can handle and manage. We can have our home, car, job, under control. But once we step up the ladder for the larger scales, we start to lose perspective, and we dive into a jigsaw with no edges, no corners, and even missing pieces.
I cannot seem to find a single institution these days, in any society that I might choose, that is not under suspicion, that remains trustworthy for the people, without some level of reluctance.
All the events that took place in our planet, from 2001 on, have exceeded any threshold we could have, for admitting some unwanted results. And what’s more, once in front of some pieces of evidence that shake the “official stories” from their very foundations, we start to pull the thread of History and find patterns that repeat each time, since the origins of our civilizations.
To obtain a diagnose, should we want to frame a new structure for our societies (which, by the way, it’s something nobody is asking us for), we face the difficulty of applying some sort of “scientific” model for our societies, for sometimes they behave erratic, some organized, too many hierarchical, hardly anytime flat, and when we try to summarize the outcome, we found ourselves with a mixture all of the above, coexisting at a same time.
Forget your neighbour. I know. He/she came up to you in a kind and friendly manner, but you’ve seen through his/her disguise and you can clearly distinguish there’s an economic end in this approach. There’s no single sign of transparency (not to say empathy) in that move. There’s always (and for sure only) an economic approach in every single human action. Economy is the mortar that keeps us all together.
Fight for your own life. Save yourself. This is the new reality. This has always been the only reality. It’s a psychotic reality, no “super-ego”, no commitment, no accountability, no “must do’s”. Just your impulses, your instincts and your actions.
Try not to be evil. It would be more than enough, an incredible achievement, if while striving for your survival, you don’t hurt anyone.
Start assuming there’s no big range of action, no big plans, no big deal. Just get your food everyday, see the football match, watch your favourite TV show. What else do you want? Is there anything else you’d like to ask for? No possible control over our reality, but the only driver of profits for the galaxy-sized corporations.
Let me put this clear once more, I’m not talking about you or me. We might or not be fine to some extent. And it really doesn’t matter in relation to the big picture. However, in the end you’ll see there is no difference between this zoom on our individual lives, and the society we are “contributing to build” (I know, I know … this expression sounds somewhat ironic at the end of the post).
I believe we are kinda starting to like being just another brick in the wall.
