Highlights Images Of 2010 For Dark Hair


Sul tema un interessante contributo che un amico, Franco Maletti, ha voluto inviarmi e  che molto volentieri pubblico.

L'incipit del ricordo
Oggi intervenire su qualunque argomento dicendo “ricordo”, (o ancor peggio “ai miei tempi”), รจ un pessimo incipit: viviamo infatti in a society without memories. And even where they "reject" the memories.
The proof of this is true because you can experience such as listening to on TV during the newscasts, the solemn declarations of the various political spokesmen (particularly of the center and from the Premier): I am so sure that people do not remember than what has been said, even the day before, to be able to support the exact opposite, depending on the convenience of the moment ...

Without the memories, it is as if the entire society lived on "hold" from moment to moment : no past and no future. But above all, without culture (meaning culture to that "complex of knowledge, traditions, technical processes, behaviors and the like, transmitted and used systematically, characteristic of a people, or the whole of humanity." In fact, culture and civilization are seen as two parallel processes: "understanding the cultural and creative events and then the values \u200b\u200bof each society and civilization coincided with the scientific and technical progress").
But what is that today form the culture of a people: those who "say" in particular television and the news? What you hear in the bar talk? The lines between work colleagues? (Participating at meetings is considered boring and tiring: better than the talk show).

it enough to people a culture of fresh today, "dished up by the television as news without historical references, but attentive to the emerging political will of the moment?

If you "forget" the memories, how can you act correctly, including all that we do? As you may be aware that this "do" is useful to someone or something? (But, above all others: from which perhaps has been elected and should be worthily represent them)?

If today there is still the culture, the formation of which memories are fundamental contradictions of certain behavioral politicians would now afloat. And with them, would be shown a total lack of values \u200b\u200band ethics: in some cases, a shameful and guilty (because desired) lack of culture.

At the point where we are today, "culture" means in particular: never trust everything that appears.

While it is true that "a winner assumes a commitment, while a loser makes promises" (F. Tjiangaete) this also means that if you trust everything that "seems", he inevitably ends by making what appears to coincide with what "is". With the result, but catastrophic at all obvious that in politics, for example, the loser makes promises that the winner becomes sixteen years now ...

"A people is mature, if it finds the politicians for what they do, not for what they say or the color which they belong "(Ols Eman). But how to achieve this without the culture of remembrance?

For example, the proverbial cultural superiority comes from learning of the Jesuits, whose method is based on the "magis" (or "qualitative superiority"). Derived from a formula that can be summarized by the single term "culture": I listen and I forget, I see and I remember, and I understand. So how can a people like have any hope of our future if he refuses to listen and remember?

Without the memory, the sense of morality and justice disappear. Because everyone feels and considers himself free to do whatever he wants. But this can not be called "freedom" and who is knowingly false claims to the contrary: as a freedom without rules might, more often than not, the most savage dictatorships.

Realize all these things is now a matter of vital importance. Because, as Anonymous says: "God forgives, not ignorance."

I hope that 2011, with the Celebration for the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy, is an opportunity to help all of us to remember and reflect.
