The Peace of God to all that belong to the light,
2014 is going to pass to History as the darkest year ever for the American Comedians. In this Year we have seen, in less than a semester, the deaths
of Robin Williams of a suicide boosted by chronic depression aggravated with years of Cocaine consumption, also the surprising death of Joan Rivers in
a minor surgery that it seems she really didn't need with urgency at all and in which there are still many doubts about professional medical ethics.
Now, we are seeing gradually how the life of an Icon of the 1980s Comedy is turning to be a terrible Tragedy, one of the most famous Philadelphians by
the way, Bill Cosby is facing multiple allegations of sexual abuse of young models, singers and admirers.
If the accusations against him are proved this might involve dozens of possible crimes performed and tolerated under the shadows of the fame, in what
seems to be a horrendous case of double personality, that it would make Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde drama look as a joke.
What is going on in America? what kind of moral crisis is the one we are witnessing?
if Comedians are writing tragedies, in which apparently corruption is the common denominator in one or other direction, it is clear that something is
definitively very wrong.
Probably what all these tragedies around comedians can teach us is that we are definitively reaching the bottom of a complete lack of values and
principles, it does not seem as an exaggeration to claim that.
What goals, standards, values or ideals are we pursuing ? to what gods have we been praised? for what expectations are we living ? is it money, fame,
power, pleasure, influences, corruption?
Are we really in the good path and if not, when did we lose the route ? I believe we are still on time to awake to start to look for the lost way that
somewhere we left back to us, if America wants to recover a position of leadership in a world also in crisis, plagued of chauvinism, materialism and
addiction to consumption.
Where is the space reserved for the compassion, generosity, and the brotherhood of the human spirit in this civilization founded in mere
competition for accumulation of wealth and power? Where is the space for the confidence in us? for the faith in humanity when the rule of the
moment is economic predation? and when the triumph of the individual , group or corporative objectives over the collective ones, what is called
success , is reached at any cost, even sacrificing all ethical principles?.
Possibly it sounds ironic, but there is who foresaw this moment long time ago, although no body understood his prediction, and for that reason no body
did nothing to correct what it was wrong on time. Here it is the seer who tried to warn us of this situation, he was later awarded with the Nobel
prize of Peace:
President James Earl Carter addressed the nation on 1979 with what is by far the most Philosophical speech ever made by any President, his immediate
concerns was the dependency of Petroleum, but he denounced a social illness that was even bigger, which implications have touched every aspect of the
global civilization we are living in, an ailment that was gradually controlling the country and the world as a terrible epidemics, boosted also by a
very irresponsible use of economic, moral and political authority along many years.
Thanks for your attention,
Do you also feel the weight of a crisis that was foretold 35 years ago?
