When you really think you are useful.
This is the fourteenth in a series of posts reflecting on the importance of our actions and what we do to contribute to something, and ideally, something greater. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
So, who are the burdens? Seriously, did you know that in ancient times, and not so far back in our history, the surplus of people was sometimes addressed through slavery? For thousands of years, humans have seen in their fellow human beings a way of meeting their needs in order to take the place that we occupy. Today, we could say that we’re in a kind of world where we are all the master and slave of another at some point.
This imperfect reality has created categories in our society. But before I continue, I would like to make an important clarification. In all of my reflections, and unlike Generation Z, I use ephemeral labels. If I say that there are this and that, good guys and bad guys, for example, it shouldn’t be understood that these are permanent and inescapable labels. Sometimes I am the bad guy or the good guy in this or that situation. What is most important is to know the characteristics of this categorization and to be able to make an informed choice. Yes, sometimes I am a polluter, but knowing that I have the possibility to make a choice in a given situation allows me to be a polluter, a lazy person or a bad person less often.
