SOCIAL LONELINESS

We do not talk about it, but the anthropological setting of man is changing suddenly, each person who is born has different characteristics of approach and how the world makes him feel part of it or not, here, in a nutshell individualism is taking the upper hand over everything and every person; while in the 90s as a child I felt part of a community because there was this type of culture, now a child, a teenager or an adult feels more and more connected to reality and virtual community but in reality, the physical one, is as if it were him against the world. In the 80s and 90s, at the time of dreams on TV, parents told us that we could become what we wanted with sacrifice, now today’s parents warn their children and underline the difficulty of getting where you want and to have already prepared a plan B. Communication, capitalism and the crisis of its system have changed lives and humanity, work is a commodity, Social Networks focus on the single person who is also sold as a commodity to the public outwardness and the most serious consequence in this egocentric society is that, proportionally, the much one has a great eclectic ability and intelligence in knowing how to sell, so much on the other side there is greater difficulty in managing and above all dealing with human relationships. It is true, many people, especially the new young people, know how to write, retouch their photos, but they do not know how and what to say to someone who cares about those words they would like and many do not know how to look in the mirror if not in profile photo. This is the century of humanity’s selfies, of the least worst in politics, of preferring to run out of oil, of talent without writing a line of song of one’s own hand, of quotes without ever having read the book, of “Everyone must think about themselves himself โ€which is a bit like slowly dehumanizing oneself, moving away from the world while always being connected with everyone but without being close to anyone.
The first thing I do when I wake up, like everyone else, is pick up the phone. I’m addicted ok but we’re not here to judge. The problem isn’t addiction, the problem is what you ingest. In fact: the first thing that my brain, and yours, records is news. The first input I give him in the morning, the first food, are: deaths, rape, tragedies, environmental disasters, mafia, corruption etc. Not that it is forbidden, but it takes the bestial physique to withstand this impact with the world. Anxiety, panic, oppression, are within reach of every click and fears are cockroaches. They sneak into the darkness of the unconscious and settle there, then come out unexpectedly when you decide not to take a trip because you could blow up, not to let your child play in the park because they kidnap him or not to eat food because there is. it is some deadly disease that can infect you.
