“Carl Sagan said you can not convince a believer of anything different, because his beliefs are not based on any evidence but on a deep-rooted need to believe. The same applies to those who believed with blind faith in a political project that succumbs today, but its followers seem ready to “”burn the country”” rather than admit that they touch their increasingly questioned leader, who continue with a blind devotion, some way related to religion. Wrong in good faith , but wrong.
Be that as it may, that is not what we are today, but a more universal deception: that of millions of confused souls who have led us to believe that whoever fails in the society of individual performance is responsible for himself, he is the only one guilty of their mistakes.
His brain is not programmed to contemplate the possibility of casting doubt on a society which suddenly – yes – has some fault in its failure, due to a systemic structural crisis in which it will always be immensely superior the number of people who crash their dreams against the pavement that of those who reach the longed and suffered success.
What is worrying is that they have been incorporating children and young people into these conformist gears of production of illusory states of consciousness, clothed with ‘genius’, with the internet as their motor of massification and where a single youtuber, the Chilean Germn Garmendia, collapsed the year past the International Book Fair of Bogot˜ with the presentation of his book Chupa el perro .
And what is suck the dog A self-help newsletter that helps to integrate the peeled and peeled to a scheme of thought that in no way contemplates, as did young people before, to question the society where they were born.
They are useful idiots of a massification of tastes imposed from above, where the type of ‘ideas’ that are handled are like those that Garmendia exposes in the book quoted: “”To fulfill your dreams, you have to get up early””; or “”get up to do what you like, not what society imposes on you.”” Sparkly!
Children, young people and adults remain submerged to the neck in the spell of a content offering that advances at an amazing speed, increasingly superficial, increasingly dangerous.
They numb their conscience, tie them to a virtual chair filled with transient emotions, one after another, at a devilish pace, while they make them believe that it is enough to have a positive attitude so that they shower “”blessings”” and clear the way to success, bullshit of those.
In the medium term, the prospect of a new deception is darkened by the 2018 presidential election: hand in hand with the same religious-looking forces that were united by the days of the plebiscite, today trained to give a new blow, they will try to sell us the dark face of redemptive light.”
