A SMALL POLITICAL THOUGHT
In italian it’s spontaneus to associate the spanish word indignados with the italian one indignati, that means indignants, disregarding the part of spanish meaning closer to outraged. This led me to a thought that may be is not sustained by a punctilious analysis of the word in question, but that still remains interesting. Here it follows.
“After 10.000 years of agricolture and sedentary civilizations, after 2 centuries of historical sense, it seemed to be obvious that morals were in their essence a device for controlling society. Careless with this, giving proof of a rare socio-political acumen, these people named themselves as a moral pose: indignation.
They mean to be opposed to the system, but in the same time they reaffirm a distinctive feature of the system by mean of their name. Without considering this attitude is a way of thinking that skims the total uselessness; it does not favour thought, and action neither.
These indignants are like dogs barking to be free; but they drew a chain upon their flag.”
Do you agree with this thought?
