Visions of the future

in Palnetlast month



Trying to delve into modern societies is like going into a tunnel with infinite labyrinths where each one has a different exit.

Globalization will not be able to break the essence of each culture, even if it succeeds in replacing some elements by changing later visions or creating new strata, the basic weapon with which advertising and alienation make man believe and convince him to have needs, a product of the marketing of new systems.

The future as seen through the prism of technology is bleak if we look at it through conventional values, natural or established ethics.

Genetics goes beyond the limits of divine creation and transforms history by being able to reproduce living beings, which in the case of humans, is a method rejected by churches and majority groups, while others, such as the Raelians, part of the scientific community and even a good number of people consider it a way out for the perpetuity of the species in the face of the destiny, still irreplaceable, of death.

But modern medicine also extends life expectancy, eradicates diseases and makes useful those who used to be a burden because of their disabilities.

The matriarchal or patriarchal politics of our ancestors is now group oriented and gangster-like, religions are reluctant to take their beliefs to the new visions, education is forgetting such fundamental subjects as ethics and virtue, easy money is gaining followers and justice is going from blind to autistic.

Faced with so much weight, the scales are tipping towards uncertainty and the most optimistic think that the fundamental balance is within the reach of the mortal himself who, by returning to his roots, can make an ark out of all this, breaking down what is productive and discarding the rest.

It could also wipe the slate clean, restarting without falling into the temptation of the survival of the fittest.

Undoubtedly many factors are interwoven, conservatives who focus the future on the revival of traditional rules and liberals who seek to exterminate the vestiges of a 21-century-old civilization, are far from reality although they are at different points.

Education must be interactive, ethics must be convictional, in politics we must all participate, mixing communist and democratic utopias and discarding apathy for the simple fact of not committing ourselves, communication must be free, without censorship or made up with concepts or half words, prohibitions must disappear and limits must not exist so as not to fall into the temptation of what is forbidden, the laws must focus on building societies that do not confuse amorality with debauchery and that are a constant nucleus of learning instead of a focus of perversion, community work must be mandatory and free several hours a month, religions must eliminate the concept of sin and the individualistic conception of a unique and unique God.

Should we go back to the law of Talion?

Perhaps it is an alternative, although it should only be applicable in the case of flagrancy, since, like the death penalty, it can be a boomerang that only exemplifies human aberrations.
