October is here, the month of horror and the topic about is valid celebrate the 31th of that month in Venezuela, where the horror is running free; and the worst part of living in Venezuela, you see the horror from other point of view. The horror of the harmful actions of people and the consequences of those actions, often, making the innocent people paying.
But this line aren’t about that, this time is about my poorly written reviews about books, short tales (in Spanish and English) and my opinions related to this holiday. And I want to write about the size of the monster. Often portrayed as a huge obstacle in the mythology and the highest trophy to obtain, but now, I think the more lethal monster are very small, so small we can even see them.
Bacterial forms are more lethal to us, more than a giant reptile; they can destroy us from inside, and that´s, at least to me, and that´s is even worse than the destruction created by a rampaging creature in a city. The history, our history has many episodes about a common cell, an illness is unleashed. The worst monster is one we can´t see, and this topic is something that Japanese movie directors and comic creators mastered very well.
Right now, I am writing away from my home and the solitude of my room. I am going to try writing again in English, my reasons to writing again are many ; I am trying to improve my English writing skills, try to improve the number of the visitors and, one of the most important, hoping to go under the radar of the censors.
Right now, I am thinking about the situation in Venezuela and the solution from the crisis is simple, the free market. But is a very risky option, at least to me, because the national currency is something nobody wants. In order to leap to a better place one thing is clear, change the currency and change the government.
But, the most important change us one so big and is going to take (at least) many years. I am talking about changing the people´s mind and the idea they had about the government and the state.
Everyone hates the government, some wants protection from the competition and the money of others, some wants to destroy it but they need that thing to gather money before the fire start and a few more only want to keep their money in their pocket because, they and I, are feeling choked by others. And the worst part is, our money is wasted, used to other things, away from something more useful. But they want us to pay taxes, and I hope you can understand taxation is theft, is not the cost we pay to create a society.
I am alive, at least I think that. But I forget this section of this little thing, but I don’t know what to write about. But, I am here trying because this little thing is having visitors from countries where my first language isn’t understand ( Like Indonesia) in other case, from countries where English is the first language and that is the perfect excuse to write again.
I don’t have the patience to write about the situation of my country, because I write about that a lot in my first language, and since the government want to censorship the internet I think one thing. Writing again in English could be a solution, I hardly believe they can understand this lines, at least they try to use the Google translator and I want to believe they are very busy with other things to censor, like the television or the news, than this small site.
And I promise a very long article next to this one. But first I need an idea to write about and to my readers from outside Venezuela, It’s on!
I’m remembering now how the American Revolution influence the rise of some people in Venezuela, the rich ones, and how Francisco de Miranda (the real Father of the country) admire the work of the Founding Fathers and their vocation to create an example of a country, by the people and for the people. Now that character is seen as mentor and later a traitor, almost forgotten.
But this lines aren’t about my country, they’re about United States and whatever happened with truth, justice and the American way? The same ideas of people like Washington, Luther King, Jefferson and many others.
As a venezuelan citizen, isn’t regular find the worst of the people in our politicians, I find if there is an idiot running the country and idiots voting for him, is because they feel very represented. But I can’t understand how Trump and Clinton are running for president; I barely understand how one gain support because he talks like every citizen in the land of the free whom feel their country is not longer theirs ( the red necks) the people who thinks the red scare is still alive and the other side of the coin, the other is talking for the millennial and the growing young socialist and social democrats.
Is strange, United States is often associated with capitalism. But they are Keynesian, a economy doctrine with more points in common with social democracy And less with free market economy. And now, a lot of people whom were running out of their country, in those countries destroyed by socialist practices and I can’t understand why many of them are gladly voting for Clinton? Why?
We’re watching the results of the bipartisanship in the worst recession and in it worst shape. As a Venezuelan, I have to tell one thing, the formula of raising the minimum wage, more public spending is the recipes for chaos.
Are you tired of the endless debates of the politicians of your country and the bad impression they create to everyone who lives there? Well, some like that and a little curiosity make me to watch the two presidential debates of the United States. I was thinking no one can’t be so tacky like the venezuelan politicians, and I was wrong, those two candidates acts like every politicians in my country. They use any means to sell themselves as the saviour of one big country, but they can’t understand where they are getting into.
Rise the minimum wage, more taxes and print more money aren’t the best choices, Venezuela is a grew example of that and the fact bipartisanship isn’t a good choice. Those two represents the worst of a rusty bipartisanship, an old system that can’t works anymore, like Venezuelan political system. United States needs mature people, with logical ideas, less intervention of the state and more economic freedom, because creating more bureaucracy isn’t a way to make a strong economy, private initiatives with the free market is a cheap way to make more jobs, please Americans stop following the Keynesian economics point of view, because the long run is here and a broken windows don’t has an multiplied effects.
Everything of those two are selling is rotten, is the same way took Venezuela a long time ago.
