Indolencia

Me llama la atención la conducta de las personas; tanto que debo ir al diccionario para ver el significado de lo que hacen. A veces, para confirmar lo que ya pienso. Así, confirmo que indolencia quiere decir ausencia de dolor, insensibilidad. O sea, que indolente es quien no se deja conmover, quien no siente dolor.

Percibo que hemos recibido verdaderas clases magistrales de indolencia estos días. Ante el desastre que los derrames de petróleo de un ducto de la ENAP en Talcahuano ha significado para centenares de pescadores artesanales de las caletas aledañas - carecen ahora de su medio de trabajo y sustento habitual -, un vocero de la empresa sostiene que "se están investigando eventuales responsabilidades". Eventuales, como si el petróleo se hubiera derramado por sus propios medios en el mar y el daño enorme producido a personas modestas fuera algo ocurrido en otro planeta, completamente desconectado de la rotura del ducto de marras.

Se nos ha informado oficiamente ayer que si no hay recursos adicionales para el TranSantiago, los que deben ser aprobados por el congreso, el "sistema por si mismo" va a provocar un alza de las tarifas en julio. Y casi puedo ver una encogida de hombros. Un verdadero exceso, le pareció a este endemoniado; y eso que ya estoy acostumbrado a oir hablar, no del sufrimiento y la incomodidad humillante de millones de pasajeros diariamente, sino que de números, estadísticas, contratos y tecnologías - de los que se puede hablar sin sufrir conmoción.

También me di por informado en la entrevista del habitual programa televisivo de los días domingo en la noche que nuestro encargado nacional de finanzas no considera que el desastre financiero de ferrocarriles merezca conmoción alguna de su ser: ¿será que considera que la plata no es suya? Nada logra quitarle la sonrisa impávida de su cara, le dijo un enrevistador, aun cuando se le recuerda la cuantiosa inversión hecha en una hermosa nueva estación ferroviaria de Pto Montt, la que no será utilizada nunca.

Me digo que quizás la burocracia es el campo donde surge la indolencia. Porque obviamente no puedo creer que sea alguna falla en el alma o en el sistema sensitivo de esta gente lo que le impide sentir dolor. (Como buen y auténtico endemoniado, desconfío de las explicaciones sicológicas - creo más bien en las posesiones, confesables o inconfesables). Es la burocracia - pienso - esa gran creadora de redes de irrealidad, de ocasiones oscuras que nos conmueven, de sensibilidades inconfesables, de ansiedades impresentables; la burocracia que me divide entre yo y mi rol.
 
La burocracia deflecta la sensibilidad de las personas - me digo. Nos convierte en personas afectadas por una conmoción pero una conmoción que no queremos dejar aparecer, que queremos a toda costa ocultar: el miedo. Nada nos conmueve al lado del miedo, no el dolor por el dolor de los que sufren y los que pagan sin justificación, solamente el miedo de  hacerlo mal, de tomar responsabilidad honestamente, de comprometernos, de reconocer sin tapujos lo que se ha hecho mal y responder. Y el miedo es de todas las emociones la que más nos avergüenza, la que menos queremos dejar traslucir. Entonces la impavidez y la indolencia que la disimulan a como de lugar.  Entonces la insensibilidad a todo lo demás: sólo me dejo conmover por el miedo de mostra el miedo que me embarga.

El miedo, concluyo, puede hacer verdaderos monstruos de todos nosotros.

P,The logic of your argument is so weak it’s laughable. A second grader could poke holes in it.The Governor was out of state during a period when a “state of emergency” was declared. He didn’t immediately return. Period.Last time I checked, Hawaii was still a part of the United States. So even if a national emergency had occurred, the President was still present in the jurisdiction for which he holds responsibility and could have presided over relief efforts.

Bonnie McClure - I absolutely love our video!!! Thank you so much Maclean for coming down here and filming our outdoor wedding in the middle of a heat wave. You really captured the beauty of the venue, and the love that Denman and I share. I am so happy that we had you film our wedding. You truly are the best! Thanks again!!!

The fire science degree is offered under the distance program learning set up at our college. In order to keep these items in safe corners, people have to have a Jewelry armoire. If they’ve got responded to a vehicle accident, they will help paramedics extract and treat victims and prepare them for transport.

Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It will always be exciting to read through articles from other authors and practice something from other websites.
Responder
And to think I was going to talk to someone in person about this.

This post may have beat out your search terms ones as my favorite. You’re making me wish my anxiety didn’t make me delete all spam comments every day. Lately they’ve all been about Xanax and pills for erectile dysfunction. They’re on to my anxiety about not being able to get it up. I thought I did pretty well keeping that hidden.

Hi Ben,You’re right. The change in the point of focus is important. Thanks for reminding us of that. It was driving home Wednesday night in very dense fog that allowed this whole thought process to evolve. I found it fascinating..-= Eleanor´s last blog .. =-.

I love the Power Tank pens, I did a pretty extensive review of it on my blog…I keep in my car just in case I need to write anything, the temp today is 13F and I’m positive if I went out there to try it that it would work.

I’d like to post articles to the internet. What article sites does Google favor? I would like to start doing some article marketing and I would like to post to sites that rank well and post articles that are actually going to be seen .

I have been really busy, I am an officer in three organizations, plus work, and I am just waiting for some of my time to free up so I can begin blogging again. Better Busy than bored.I for one am on the Obama bandwagon. I think that he is a good candidate with good ideas. I also see your point I have mixed views. I want him to win, but I don't know if he can

As a Brit who grew up in the 70′s I found this to be an interesting but flawed list. Jethro Tull are one obvious overlooked prog rock band. Floyd should be higher, the Clash are overrated and under no circumstances better than the Beatles. The Hollies, Cream and Slade are MIA. Thanks for Status Quo though – great live act!

Aufrufen tue ich es nie. Das ist so eine dieser Apps, mit denen man anderen das iPhone vorführt, finde ich.Aber ich habe sowieso ganz viel vergessen, man könnte das zu einer Rubrik machen, doch da sind andere Blogs wohl dichter dran.
