Modernity

January 24th, 2013

Since its primrdios the man searchs one meaning for the existence and the universe, the direction of itself exactly and the understanding of its relations with the next one. A belief of modernity is that it is possible to find the reason of everything, the cause of everything. If we do not find is because not yet we search the sufficient. It wants to say, the extension of the knowledge is limitless. It does not have no border that if opposes our knowledge.

It corresponds to a belief of that my knowledge are enough to control the world where I live. Then, this cientificista arrogance is contrary to the field of the truth, and pushes the man to exactly produce devices delude that it how much to the absolute control of this world, also of itself. We live in the society where with priority value is to have ownership of things, objects and people. The individual is classified by the mark of its clothes, for the position that occupies, the car that it possesss, the type of work that it plays or the amount of people which dirige. In this way, the objects have one ' ' valor' ' greater of what the human being. The man is valued by what he possesss e, therefore, runs the risk of, in this seduction, to changed itself into being-coisificado.

To identify themselves with its half one, it he needs, each time more, to have. In case that if it cannot have, it even has the risk of if to want to take off of who has. This finishes occurring with people of all the social classrooms: tapeworms, desirous or become attached objects, as form to hide its true desires. In its internal world, they are distant of itself same e, how much to the external world, absent of its social reality. In this society that privileges having; transforming the person into simple instrument, that nails good ideals to live; that controls, for the media, the ways to think, to feel and to act of the individuals, if sees front to an interior emptiness, symptom of a social form of living meaningless.
