EL MUNDO AL REVES EDUARDO GALEANO PDF

On the other hand, Upside Down, A Primer for the Looking-Glass World takes hard-to-swallow subjects such as racism, sexism, corporate manipulation, government betrayal, workplace dehumanization, brainwashing of children, environmental poisoning, systematic jailing, torture and murder and treats these subjects alternately with laugh-out-loud black humor, out-and-out sarcasm, and sharp steely needles of cynicism. Tell us what you really think, Eduardo! Modern culture and society as a bushel basket of rotten apples. It condemns us to solitude and consoles us with chemical drugs and cybernetic friends.

On the other hand, Upside Down, A Primer for the Looking-Glass World takes hard-to-swallow subjects such as racism, sexism, corporate manipulation, government betrayal, workplace dehumanization, brainwashing of children, environmental poisoning, systematic jailing, torture and murder and treats these subjects alternately with laugh-out-loud black humor, out-and-out sarcasm, and sharp steely needles of cynicism.

Tell us what you really think, Eduardo! Modern culture and society as a bushel basket of rotten apples. It condemns us to solitude and consoles us with chemical drugs and cybernetic friends. One thing I could never figure out: why were all the kids I knew armed to the teeth with cap guns, water guns, pop guns and even BB guns. When many of those same kids grew up and were sent to Vietnam, I started figuring it out. Every nonwhite suspect confirms the rule written in invisible ink in the depths of our collective conscience: crime is black or brown, or at least yellow.

When it comes to race, all you have to do is rub people the wrong way ever so slightly and an avalanche of anger and rage can pour out. One of personal favorite chapters: The Sacred Car. Automobiles usurp human space, poison the air, and frequently murder the interlopers who invade their conquered territory — and no one lifts a finger to stop them. But I must admit one good thing: other than the occasional dog-owner walking doggie, I have the sidewalks pretty much to myself. The automobile as the noisy, dirty glue fitting all the pieces together.

And, God forbid, if anybody has any doubts, check out the flood of TV commercials: an unending stream of handsome, happy men and beautiful, sexy women driving sleek, shiny new automobiles. Good times in the land of plenty. My only escape was going off to college. I suspect a good measure of my modest success in creative endeavors results from freeing myself from the boob tube.

Come to think of it, why do I no longer hear people calling that silly thing the boob tube or the idiot box? The world has more and more surplus people. What will the owners of the planet do with so much useless humanity? Send them to the moon? In Mexico, work is the only commodity whose price goes down every month. Over the past twenty years, a good part of the middle class has fallen into poverty the the poor have fallen into misery, and the miserable have fallen off the charts.

But, as you are counting, reflect: is your job empowering you to express the full flower of your creative energies, or is it just a tad deadening? The system of power is not in the least eternal.

PATAS ARRIBA: LA ESCUELA DEL MUNDO AL REVES

Al fin y al cabo, somos lo que hacemos para cambiar lo que somos. El desarrollo desarrolla la desigualdad. La caridad es humillante porque se ejerce verticalmente y desde arriba; la solidaridad es horizontal e implica respeto mutuo. El hambre desayuna miedo.
