The new year has arrived: 2023. Everywhere in the world we celebrate the new year but not on the same date and above all not in the same way. However the new year brings with it the hope of a better life… 2022 was a bitter year for Europe: war! In fact, the conflict in Ukraine has caused bills to rise, forcing many traders to close their businesses. The war in Ukraine obviously doesn’t affect all the countries of the world equally… the most distant countries see the conflict as something unknown… but everyone should hope that in the new year there will be peace.
There are various sayings and idioms in various languages and cultures about drying laundry …
In Italian in particular, the saying is a little different: it is said “wash the clothes in the family” …
In any case, the sense of the drawing of the brilliant Pawel Kuczysnki is to hang out the dirty clothes …
The network is a large community and social networks have various ways of setting the circle of people on which to share their content. In any case, sharing is often like hanging out dirty clothes, especially when social media becomes a trivial means with which to communicate, because it becomes all superficial and devoid of any knowledge.
One of the most atrocious drawings by Pawel Kuczysnki. I hope it does not correspond to reality because it would be really sad and disheartening … even if over time I have admired the reality of the Polish artist’s drawings…
I read that this could probably happen in some communist dictatorships of South America, where they even arrest citizens who try to steal garbage ..
Destroying the energy and the means by which the masses and populations can assert their rights and freedoms is the most dictatorial act that can be created, especially if the population is unconscious and dozed off in a state of addiction.
Quite singular is the coincidence of the illustration by the Polish artist depicting the charging socket for smartphones, which coincidentally is not standard for all mobile phones, and which despite the fact that there is now talk of creating a standard socket for all smartphones, still not an agreement is found.
The illusion of thinking that chronological progress leads to social progress implies a conformity on the indifference of social values. Television often symbolizes a departure from reality in which the viewer places ideals unconsciously to simplify reality and society, which are increasingly pungent and stressful in their complexity.
Primitive man used the cudgel to fight and use violence. Today, however, the cudgel is represented by language, which more and more often takes on the contours of violence, especially in a world where communication is everything (or almost …)
There are bright ages and there are dark ages. Although the cycle of life is made up of the alternation of sunlight, in some periods it seems that the sun never rises. And when there are wars in between, it is always in the dark and freedom seems so suppressed that not even the sun gives that hope ..
what is freedom? It is being able to do what I want while respecting the freedom of the other. But if my concept of freedom is different, the system of society becomes utopian. The 3rd millennium is characterized by having exported democracy to exasperation leading it almost to a democratic dictatorship. Paradoxically, although China has nothing to do with most of the wars that have taken place in recent years, it nevertheless identifies the concept of democratic dictatorship at its perfection.
Sometimes the world turns too fast and the frenzy of being close to everything around us leads us to be succubus of the world. As Saint Augustine said, one must go back inside oneself, to find oneself.
In fact it is within oneself that both the world and oneself are found and perhaps time and the world will be scanned according to one’s inner time and not from the external one . Of course there are deadlines and essential times in life, but every day you have to find a piece of the day to find yourself, to alienate yourself from the increasingly globalized and frenetic world.
Our while should always be forged by culture .. and especially in a period like this, in which technology has taken over, the book (symbol of culture) should remain the tool with which to forge our mind. But often it is others who forge ours mind and it is hoped that culture always heals what is inside … because even false cultures must be identified …
The furrows of war are dug by the plow, the means by which one sows to collect food … but they are defended by soldiers who are often forced to make war.
Sometimes, however, wars that only sow hatred or those that are waged for the pleasure of expanding their borders do not bear any fruit.
The boundaries of the world are often established in eras when communications did not allow for the current globalization.
But to make a war it often takes either the pinnacle of domination or absolute hunger. A country with moderate approval is not tempted to make war because it could fall into a much worse condition than it is
