Latin America

Many are wondering how it is possible the approach of Western countries to China and its co-protagonismo for the configuration of another possible world, better than the current one. The springs of propaganda have gone further than the analytical capacity of media professionals. How many of them knew the language and history of China? How many had inhabited it as we did with United States, Europe and many in Africa and Latin America countries? We have lived through captives of the mentality of the cold war and the Chinese civilization was so alien as the Muslim world that, in the Spanish case, makes up the third of our roots, along with the Graeco-Roman world and the Judeo-Christian contribution to us. We lived based on stereotypes. The twentieth century was a hotbed of scientific advances, financial metastasis, inhumane war, hunger and disease, exclusion and exploitation of those who did not enjoy European, Christian, illustrated and triumphant ethnocentrism. While watched the American way of life, by East resurgian civilizations and ancient cultures whose existence we knew by tales of conquistadors, colonists and exploiters. Serious imbalance for harmony capable of shaping well structured personalities. Hence both vacuum and maelstrom beset by fear to be not enough.

Our rulers promised security before that social justice and paradisaical paradises instead of spaces where we could be ourselves; free, responsible and able to live in the exercise of our right to the pursuit of happiness. Paul Eluard explained it: Yes, there are other worlds and they are in this. They branded it surreal when it wasn’t more than put a light on the barricades, instead of cursing. It is the root of our malaise: not knowing what we want and kill us for it. What interested were solitary and docile, crowds for whom morality became of that do not have is a sin. Rosa Maria Calaf told us: the media are directed to consumers rather than citizens, why so many journalists know much crisis and little crises that cover to cover.
