When looking on our local media, a strong massage of separation appears constantly. In many ways, it represent quite well the notion growing the western society. It doesn’t really matter where you look, feelings of hatred and fear are broadly manifested. This feeling of hatred to are also broadly manifested on social media, which prove that this symptoms are not a media propaganda but a real sentiment hold by the public.
Interestingly enough, this wave of manifestation have a lot to do with the broken political system we are living in. Without any doubts, our current politician have a lot to do with the new social status of fear hold by many. The fact that the majority of the recent political campaign in Europe has been pushed by the “Immigration problem” subject and the recent president of the United State is constantly speaking on closing boarders, and making “America great again”, are all public acts of hatred and separation pushed by our leaders. (We will ignore the subconscious racist massage of a white leader in America talking on bringing back the the old glory of the state)
Just to explain myself better, in a recent post of mine regarding immigration in Europe, I argued that immigration is actually promoted by local governments and is actually needed for the survival of the economical stability of the continent. (Click here for learn more). From the other side, the current propaganda on the local politician is based on an anti immigration movement, which contradict the necessities of the nation itself. In America it is even more remarkable. The USA is an immigration countries that has managed to arrive to its current status only thanks to global cooperation and trade. Also here, the current propaganda is contradicting the nation interest.
If this is all so clear, why we are living in such a paradox? Well, the current socio political reality in the western world is broken. Politicians do not promote the well being of their people, the economy is on a verge of a new economical crisis, people are getting more poor and the freedom which once has been our pride has become our imprisonment. All those subjects are not only hard to explain to the people, but since no simple solution exists it is even harder to address it in a political campaign.
That doesn’t change the fact that the real people living in the west are feeling something is wrong. I beleive a general feeling that we are going to collapse very soon is felt by many people. This reality create a weak and terrified population, which is vulnerable to manipulation. So what our current politicians are doing? Instead of addressing the real problem, they amplify our fear and nightmares talking about the danger related to change, talking about moving backward to a closed minded nationalist mindset.
It is important for me to remind to you at this point, that the period of nationalism has brought to us Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, the american civil war, Franco and the events of the atom bombs. Nationalism took the highest amount of human life after the imperialism. There is no pride is that and no excuse for us to go back there. Only 2 generations has passed since those terrifying events which brought humanity to understand we can do better. Less than a hundred year have passed since we berried and lost hundreds of millions of our bother and sister.
It is easy to hate as it demand only ignorance and violent, which doesn’t make it right or justified. It is hard to love and understand, as it require patient, belief and hard work. It is the first time in human history that we are able to create a real prosperous global reality, that will benefit humanity as a whole. It is new, different and demanding. But it can create a better reality for us, our children’s and the planet as a whole. Don’t fall for hatred and separation just because it is easy. We’ve been there already, nothing good come out of it.
