TRUTH OR SURROGATE?
How do you deal with coffee substitutes?
Barley coffee, decaffeinated coffee: are alternatives valid for those who for various reasons must give up real coffee, or if not coffee, better to leave it alone and drink something else?
I found myself thinking about surrogates while listening to the news.
Does the truth still exist? More and more often, I have the impression of having to drink a long series of substitutes, or worse still, it seems to me that I have to swallow the notorious Parmesan, as if it were taken for granted that so much is fine even if it is not the real one, because after all what costs less is convenient.
So hearing that a soldier gets confused and shoots down an airliner taking off for an American fighter, for me it’s a bite of Parmesan, but everyone eats it, that’s okay, let’s continue our things, it doesn’t matter if anyway look at it, it’s paradoxical.
Without wanting to do pub geopolitics, it doesn’t worry you to think that it is considered plausible that a soldier, alone, in the era in which we even control the washing machine with a simple application on the cell phone, could launch a missile without authorization, without checks, without certainties, and without any sense?
Wouldn’t you call him Lee Harvey Oswald?
Or, maybe it’s me who, repeatedly disappointed, see the truth more and more like a Siberian Tiger: magnificent, but now almost extinct.
