Can we talk about other issues?
Sometimes it seems that some facts receive obsessive attention, almost morbid, while others are shrouded in the darkness of oblivion, even if they have deeply affected the lives of millions of human beings.
Again and again, the same anniversary reappears on time on television, on the radio, in the press, on thousands of Internet pages.
The voices and the texts revolve on the subject in question. It seems like a kind of collective rite: the eyes and the hearts feel stimulated to give their point of view, to criticize or to approve, to insist on the causes and the consequences of an event converted almost to something mythical.
There are facts, certainly, that deserve our attention. An attack that killed hundreds, perhaps thousands of people, spontaneously provokes reactions, leads us to think and to think.
But sometimes it seems that some facts receive obsessive attention, almost morbid, while others are shrouded in the darkness of oblivion, even if they have deeply affected the lives of millions of human beings.
Some think that the Internet can break the mental schemes that continually impose the same issues. Others note that the Internet is simply a slave to what some have imposed as dominant issues.
Also, it is not easy to open your eyes to the facts of the past or present when information is missing. And information is lacking when those who control it (there are also monopolies in the news world) want to impose certain issues and silence others.
One of the most urgent challenges of our time is to open up spaces for other topics, often relegated, but no less important. We cannot succumb to a funnel that almost all of us would be doomed to spend if we were to be present in the world of information.
Therefore, it takes courage and energy to discover and make known thousands of marginalized subjects that need to be known in all their wealth or their drama. We will leave space for so many valuable stories of human beings who live and who die in this little great adventure planet.
