Problems in societies arise when “organisation” claims of knowing better than people themselves, what people’s needs are and how to solution them. Human need is determined by every and each situation alone and there isn’t one that is the same. Precedent cases, similar, exist but every and each case has its own particular circumstances. Problems in societies arise when organisation becomes a vest to force human beings into, at any cost, even when it clearly is too tight or too loose for either a few, some, many or a lot!
Rules, made out for other centuries, other societies, other situations, can be a stepping stone to respect and learn from, but cannot fit today’s World by word, because today’s World features discoveries that did not exist before, we need to experiment and update constantly! Organisation should be tailored to fit situations… Not the other way round!
It’s not surprising that technology evolves quickly, it does so because it links its existence to “need”. Because it updates all the time to service better functionality… Regardless the question of whether technology itself is really needed for human existence or not, once established, its evolution follows this very simple question: WHAT DOES IT NEED TO IMPROVE ITS FUNCTION?
Systems should function and evolve like mobile phones do or like software… Because organisation in reality is a tool designed by people to help people find solutions to their needs. Organisation is a needed tool in human coexistence for as long as it is flexible, otherwise it becomes an obstacle to resolution of needs and a tool for creating further PROBLEMS!
Yet we need more time to understand this simple notion – time – that will cost much more many lives!
And for as much as I understand how sad this story is, how asphyxiating and painful, I also understand how STUPID we all are for being afraid of a DRESS… Of the system as it is, that prevents us from being who we are… Just like kids are afraid of ghosts and do not open the cupboard, do not look under the bed, do not walk alone to the bathroom even though they really want to try.
BUT Systems only exist because there are people out there insisting to abide, obey and reinforce those. Yet, in any given situation both the actors and the “judges” are people! Situations evolve and involve Eyes of people that have the ability to see, Mouths of people that have the ability to speak, Ears of people that have the ability to hear, many more body parts but also Hands of people that have the ability to stop genocides! To stop torture! To STOP violence! To STOP atrocities – PREVENT harm – PROTECT PEOPLE.
EYES, MOUTHS, EARS… HANDS OF PEOPLE CAN PROTECT PEOPLE.
The above mentioned EXIST, body parts and their functions exist! What for are we sparing them from being? Our brains can think, what for are we sparing those from questioning? Our hearts can feel, what for are we sparing those from LOVING?
If we are not here for using all the organs we are blessed enough to have, what for are we here in the first place???
… Listening to the NEWS on TV is not a good enough answer for me!
