Yet another year

Wednesday, April 06, 2011 | En Español

As I grow older, my perception of the world is constantly transforming. I would say that the world around me is transforming as well, but only part of it is changing. While the technology and the achievements of our civilization advance, the truth is that our civilization never changes. We are dealing with the very same issues that our ancestors faced: insatiable greed, endemic corruption, the desire of small groups of individuals to control the population, discrimination, selfishness, you name it. But, on top of this, we are facing new problems never faced before by previous generations: an overpopulation that is reaching unimaginable levels, which leads to hunger and even more disputes over the limited resources of our planet. And the unprecedented contamination of the planet.
