Fear the man

The time of the people

Blind, deaf or heavely brain impared could someone end up after watching a school big boy taking over America's most powerful chair without any political valuable skill, other than making noise with exagerated arm movement and studied agressive gesture.

If that boy would not speak, then at least we would be scared for the unknown. Perhaps it would not be that bad after all, given that not doing anything the country is in pretty good shape already, and USA is an unstoppable machine that works on its own. But that boy has a speech, a powerful one, full of character, of empty promises, of simple words for simple minds. This becomes a big problem for us all. Fear the man who talks to you as if the rest were stupid, as if the others have done it all wrong. Fear the man who is married to a decorative woman without say, who in a position of power and media impact makes deplorable acts of discrimination. Fear the man who being billionaire billionaire deliberately  talks to the poor and iliterated audience. Fear the man who as a leader shows his cards in an agressive and imperative way towards others. Fear the man who embraces oligarchy. Fear the man who disrispects political opponents. Fear the man who disqualifies the most qualified voices. Fear the man who fears truth and free press. Fear the man who has no fear for lack of intelligence and knowledge.  Fear the man of slogans selling the smoke of nonexistent fires. Fear the man who fears and attacks art, as it tends to be the most pure representation of the voice of society. But most of all fear the man who has become who he is by a large support from american people, as it is not a problem to fear a man but unsustainable to face his millions of followers enabling his power.

Said all of this, much more could have been said. Perhaps sounds like a sad and fearful claim of the future now to come for USA. Well, on this case it is. And an uprising movement of political devastation is getting towards the old Europe too. Americans always claim to be the example of democracy. In Europe we have always known this was not at all certain, but the history make us respect their nation. America, perhaps if any, represents a model not to copy or implement. Nevertheless it is a powerful ally not to bother and if any please, knowing its influencial and absolute controlling role played in the delicate diplomatic world. USA is effectively the 'bullying' partner that we cannot get rid off, but with Trump's new atittude it is likely we will dance no more to their tune, giving us wings to change and be the moving force to drive peoples future.

We Europe are the future, it is now in our hands to start a new era of intellectual fraternal movement to face the indecency of the big players. Their socioeconomic and political models should no more be an example in this devastated and unequal world we live in. What is showing us are the risks that could also hit our nations. We today, see with neglectful impotent thoughts how China, Rusia and USA are endangered models. A new time is needed where citizens need to rethink anthropologist theories to avoid the obscure diversion into old failed models. We need to revert to a point were values, knowledge, honour, fraternity and truth are encoded to every citizen. We need a leading and talented movement which reacts and starts taking back those principles we all can have, by brave illustrative acts of educational social impact. Those should not only include a new sociopolitical and economical model, but also a challenging unfearful and unified transition plan to achieve our very best as humans and animals as a whole. We need to challenge the most important basic principle in our existence, which is our model of coexistance not only as humans but also as animals. We all know the model is wrong, but have not done anything to change at big scale. Perhaps it is not Trump or its followers you need to fear, but rather yourself and the lack of initiative of taking part in facing the need for a global change.

A sip of red wine

A sip of red wine, suddenly unchained my inner voice. I was tasting, strongly feeling, perhaps even dreaming. Those gifted instants of true discovery, when you know it is you who is sincerely speaking, and from that very moment there is no recovery.

You will not be the same again, but an improved shadow that will always walk ahead shading your mistaken past. As a simil, perhaps the first fly of a bird. Leaving all behind for a chance of survival, although knowing that the instinct is further more important than any other natural law. But how to fly, when there are so many cliffs you could fall into? Well, taking the first exit, the first drop, will certainly take you down, but you can fly even higher from the point where you started. It is not the drop that matters, not even the place where you land, but knowing the instinct that took you down in the first place.

We are all intelligent animals and we all know how to survive, but going beyond reason to achieve that goal stamped to every one's soul. That is what makes life most difficult. Animals follow their natural purpose in life, but we are all well above simplicity. Why then surrender to the socially forced every day's life curse?

We have the chance to achieve the unlimited, learn from the greatest printed minds, listen to the most delicate musical pieces and getting trapped by its superb tonality, discuss of impossible facts with impossible friends, fall in love unconditionally, write our thoughts - so we and all can remember -, be mad inventors, fanatics for good, singers of happiness, painters of feelings, childish musicians, rebel parisiens, even magicians! Oh I forgot the gentle pleasures, bring those without measures! So much to be lived as such. Do not let your time be wasted without even one of those little things being tasted. Do not say you lived like "happy holi" is there is no even one scar on your body. If you do not know who you are by now, either you do not want it somehow or have many bad habits to slough.

I invite you to take just one a sip of that revealing wine, the one that will your thoughts certainly rewind, and surely also grind all those basis that make your chasis. Do not look around, as somebody might persuasively bring you down, so you can remain sound and impassively never have yourself finally found.

Just a sip... I hope your mind gets flipped, and your attitude has finally and distantly leaped, so you can then fall into a new written script.
