That moment when, almost in your forties, you realize that you have been walking the wrong path for more than twenty years.

Have you seen this Ken Robinson‘s presentation?:

Consciousness pills

During the last year or so, Spanish grassroot movements in defense of public services and the welfare state have gathered around thematic “citizen tides” or mareas ciudadanas. Activist usually bear a characteristic color specific for each one of those tides (e.g., green for public education and white for public health care).

Tomorrow, the 32nd aniversary of the attempted military coup d’état of 1981, all those colorful tides will march together along the country to denounce a new coup d’état carried out against our (deficient) democracy and the people.

The State of the Spanish Nation will be addressed today and tomorrow at the Spanish Parliament, but I can already give you a hint: It is in an advanced state of decomposition.

Fractal corruption

fractal is an object that displays self-similarity on all scales.

Spanish political, corporate and financial corruption repeats its envelope-delivery culture on all scales.

Praise the finger

This cartoon is related (once again!) with some aspects of current Spanish politics (too long to explain) and a popular quote:

When a wise man points at the moon the imbecile examines the finger.

Seagull apocalypse

with 5 comments

seagull-apocalypse

(en español)

I guess I have to explain this cartoon a bit for those not familiar with Spanish politics. The seagull is the symbol of the Spanish ruling party, the conservative People’s Party, as the elephant and the donkey are the symbols of  the USA’s Republican and Democratic parties respectively.

The behaviour of this seagulls’ party is currently of major concern for most Spaniards.
