We live in a divided world, formed by faced societies where people are in conflict with themselves. Our logical way of thinking causes us to understand the world as a confronted dichotomy. It can even prove difficult for us to understand reality if it weren’t for the relationship between opposites, but far from seeing that opposing elements share the same essence we stick with the idea of rivalry. For many years we’ve related to the world from a binary perspective: masculine and feminine, right and wrong, true and false… and it could be that this is an imposed logic, as all these concepts are social constructions that are different depending on the culture and the region.

We’re born conditioned by confused societies where people feverishly believe in opinions by affinity or confrontations with other people and not by considering the value of one’s own actions. This comfortable way of defining personal criteria promotes social fractures, creates groups differentiated by arguments of discrimination and enables mass politics to dominate the public opinion. The media spread nothing but hate and confusion making propaganda of market-driven politics. 

We think in a way that is conducive of division, the ideological frontier, and when it would seem that the tendency towards a globalized word should mean be the end of frontiers, the reality is that they are reaffirmed in every way. The freedom of movement is only true for the free market, countries are solely interested in money entering and people without money are denied entry.

The riches of the western countries, that were historically stolen cloak and dagger are now defended with kilometers of entrenched walls and coils of barbed wire. It would seem that oppositional thinking has historical motives based on very specific interests.

Disassembling binary thought is to break from discriminatory indifference, recognize one’s position in society and make use of one’s privilege to give to others. We need to make the media voice actions that aren’t of economic interest and to consider earning less and lose to win to reach a balance between self-serving and selfless actions.
