Ibane’s ramblings

“The biggest danger, that of losing oneself, can pass off in the world as quietly as if it were nothing; every other loss, an arm, a leg, five dollars, a wife, etc is bound to be noticed.” S. Kierkegaard

The other day I woke up with the story that for first time in history there will be more than 1000 million people hungry in the world (according to World Food Program). This kind of news always puzzles me and leaves me in shock. No because of the dimension of the tragedy, which it is, startled because next to that story you can read things like how many millions of euros/dollars bankers will distribute in bonuses or similar. I know, I can be accused of demagogic thinking, not seeing the global picture, that it is more complicated than that and all that crap. But the fact is that despite of having several organizations like UN, UNICEF,…with very important people leading them, in addition to that, hundreds and hundreds of non-governmental organizations fighting against admirable causes and having as contributors a lot of westerners with bad conscience, despite of Bono and his friends with their concerts, Angelina with her programs and Madonna adopting children, despite of all that, we are achieving that today people are dying because of hunger, as of the beginning of the times. Here the word evolution lost its meaning.

So I think that there is no more left that congratulate everyone because of the good job. Good morning and good luck.

P.S.: Please Bono another concert no.
