The war in Ukraine further exposed the problem of big “charitable” organizations – especially the International Red Cross – and charity in general on the part of Western countries. Expired medicines meager portions of humanitarian aid, corruption – all this existed before this year. It’s just that Ukrainians have more opportunities to record what is happening than people in African countries with less access to the Internet. But the question of the right to existence of charity as such also appears. As today’s events show, it’s needed at critical moments (war, natural disasters, the spread of dangerous diseases), but when you have organizations with nice offices and expensive cars that have been sending humanitarian mineral water to children in Africa for decades – maybe it needs something to do with poverty rather than donate money to bureaucrats?


It seems very strange to me that they didn't talk about her by making at least one film or documentary on TV. They only talked about her on the news and this saddened me a lot because she was a smart woman who went against the royal system and the queen, courageously saying certain uncomfortable truths and it is worthwhile to always make an adequate commemoration and not that pass all in absolute silence.
Diana was what all women are: weak and strong, temperamental and protective, happy and sad, all at the same time. But while ordinary women like us aren't allowed this, for her it was the hallmark. And in a way it allowed all those who became women after her death to be seen as free women to be as they are.
I was very struck by a video biography of Kitty Kelley in which we speak of Lady Diana as a very complex woman, with sudden mood swings, with fits of anger, frequent crying fits and a particular propensity to self-harm (apparently she has attempted suicide several times).

Can all of this be generated by an unhappy marriage?

It doesn't look exactly like that. The roots of Lady Diana's malaise can also be found in the family of origin.

Diana Spencer is noble by birth, fourth of five children (she had two sisters and two brothers), her family crumbled when she was only 7 years old. The cause of the separation of the parents seems to have been the death of her little brother just ten hours after his birth. A pain that the parents could not overcome given how much they wanted a son for the continuation of the family name. After the birth of her little brother who died, however, the third daughter arrived, Diana, to whom they gave her name a week after her birth.

Her childhood was turbulent, characterized by few acts of love on the part of her parents, and it seems that this is precisely the reason for her emotional dependence.

A trait in common with his wife Charles who did not see his mother for months. While she traveled the world on official visits, Charles was in the care of nurses but above all he spent time with his maternal grandmother, Queen Mother Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon all to utter his name in his presence? Little curiosity!). Charles was seen as the future king and therefore had to be educated from an early age, which also happened to his mother when his uncle Edward VIII abdicated for the sake of Wallis Simpson, a divorced American actress (at the time a king could not marry a divorced woman as Prince Harry has done in recent times).

As we know, Diana was very active on a humanitarian level and used her popularity to shed light on countless social issues: from HIV / AIDS, to land mines, from leprosy, to the homeless.

He also deliberately used his wardrobe to convey "approach and warmth" both when he came into contact with ordinary people, when it was a charity mission, and when he met official delegations.

Every time he returns to Africa, Harry, Diana's son, feels like he feels "at home", still wrapped in his mother's arms. As he himself told, it is in this continent that he took refuge after Diana's death and, over the years, returned mainly to Mozambique, precisely to collaborate with The Halo Trust, a charity involved in the removal of anti-personnel mines, which he was very dear to the late Princess. It was following in his footsteps that Harry visited the reclaimed minefield on that occasion, meeting both mine victims and deminers. Diana, eight months before her tragic death, visited a mine clearance camp in Angola (which Harry went to see personally in 2013).


Right from the start, the strong, decisive fact of Fossey comes to light, right from the first meeting with Professor Leakey, wanted and conquered by fighting, almost, with the photographers and admirers - real or presumed - who surround him at the end of a conference. His request to carry out research in Africa is more than a question or a plea. It is a passionate request, an assumption of responsibility. It expresses a question of vital importance and it is already, basically, a gesture of challenge through which she comes to ask herself, even before being a capable researcher, as a highly motivated person, of one who, beyond the comparison of a scientific curriculum or his value, he snatches the consent to his stay in Africa with determination. This will soon become the peculiar aspect of the character through which the events drawn from his life in the Virunga mountains will be filtered and take consistency.


Honestly when I first saw African tribes wearing Nike shirts and Japanese with punk crests I was very disappointed. Each people has very specific characteristics made up of different traditions and lifestyles. And this because of globalization no longer exists. If I go to different countries I find the same things, the same way of dressing, the same food and few things are different now. I don’t like this at all. I believe that peoples have been manipulated to be all transformed into consumers, destroyers and narcissists. This manipulation has made everyone so alike that they are all slaves to a global system that is destroying the planet and humans themselves. It is not nice to see entire historic neighborhoods destroyed in many states and to see that people all dress the same, no longer having their own tradition and culture. Wherever I go I find the same clothes, the same habits, and they are conforming us according to a global system of rules that reduce life only to a continuous purchase. But few people realize this. Few people are aware of this destruction of cultural traditions. The world now seems made up only of Nike, Mac Donalds, Coca Cola, and everyone accepts this without any protest. Everyone wants the same things and nobody wants to go back. Young people have gotten lost following the brands that manipulate them through influencers for a life that seems satisfying but then becomes depressed and destructive. Look how many young people no longer have a purpose in life, they don’t want money and success. They are not even looking for love anymore but only for money. And they fight each other, they are all rivals, on youtube and on Twitch, they fight as if they were in a ring. They don’t want the fam and that’s it.


Some people think they live in disadvantage.
But they don't know how to live in the rest of the world.
You are tired, stressed, depressed. You think your life is the worst of all. You have to put up with cruel colleagues, disgusting table food, hypocritical friends, terrible parents. But does your life really suck? Have you ever seen how people live in certain places far away from you? Do they have everything you have? Are complaining? Are they crying? Do they get depressed?
It seems that now no one can do without something. It seems that the food is just that of plastic, tasteless and odorless.
Many people cannot do without technology, they are slaves to material objects and things.
They have become obsessively collectors of many things that don't have a practical function in real life.
How many people still live in a primordial way? How many people barely have a roof over their heads?
Many children don't even have a bed. They have no food and live in huts made of scraps.
How long would you resist? Would you be able to live without all your usual things?
Sometimes they show you those poor people on TV while you are eating or playing with your cell. Can you imagine not having all the things you have today? Can you imagine if they were taken from you how you would live? Would you be able to resist poverty?
Can you imagine your children rummaging through the garbage for food or clothing?
Can you imagine them without Play Station?
What do they know about the world?
nd what do you know about the world?
Is what you have really so little that you feel unhappy?
