Why should we care about politics when the analysis is so bleak? Why should we act collectively when messages are so negative and results so low?
“You only have to say what you have in front of your eyes and not to elude the conclusion” Invisible committee.
A critical look gives reasons for action. And an historical look reveals that each act of destruction calls for an act of creation.
There is a demon in each of us.
Fearing the demon inside us
will only make it
Stronger and scarier…
Why do you become an activist?
You do not become an activist. A situation turns you into an activist.
An unbearable moment which you can not ignore, avoid or bypass.
Now. Us. Only now!
The past – pleasant memories. The future – will see…
Relying on current intuitions to understand love.
Projections into a common future might reassure. But they do not explain what can only be felt.
According to Vasconcelos, emotions are an essential factor of knowledge.
Trust. What we all want.
But how do you define it?
Trust that someone does not lie?
That he/she will do what you expect him/her to do? It never happens.
Trust that you share common values?
That he/she is a better person than you? It is impossible.
There is clarity in opposition
A common divisive point
Don`t just oppose and hate
Oppose and learn
Yesterday, Che Guevara, Gandhi, Comandante Marcos. Political icons.
Today, brands without political messages.

Or the icon. He or she is there to do the job for us: no need to get out of our comfort and ignorance.
But if political messages are not being shared and understood, the emptiness of brands prevail.
Octavio Paz “The revolutionary is always radical, he does not long to correct abuses, but the uses themselves”
“Freedom is freedom of being, not freedom of having” – Ugo Mattei
We have a limited amount of resources left. Why don’t we share?
Nature and people must come first.
Without them, you can have it all but you will be nothing.
Freedom comes with responsibility
Love so fulfilling, you do not have enough heart space to receive it
Love so simple, you do not need words to express it
Love so deep, you only need to be next to one another
Thank you friends and family. The only thing I need to consume is time with you.
Can you love today what you hated yesterday?
How unpredictable and predictable can we be?
Are sudden life changes U-turns or do they reflect uncertainties you were hiding and/or problems you did not want to solve?
U-turns might exist, but so does deliberate blindness. Blindness to who you are and whom you do not want to accept to be.
