I tell you an anecdote that happened to me on the day the last Three Wise Men were celebrated:
I meet a boy on a street parallel to the street of the parade and I ask him if he does not want to go to see the kings, to which he answers that the three kings do not exist, and taking out his cell phone he tells me that if I want evidence we can have them on the spot. The child's response puzzles me because this is a true child (I don't know how old he would be but it was certainly what we can all understand by a child). I am perplexed by his answer and by the fact that children his age have access to the internet. Perhaps this would already be another debate, or perhaps not. I was perplexed by the way the child was, a being without the typical emotions of children, with hardly any emotions and instead he was tremendously intellectual for the age he should have.
But their parents were nearby although I had not noticed it and they join the conversation and give me their point of view, and in short it is this (although with my own words): we must wake up the children of fiction and prepare them from very early to work life. Games are a waste of time, innocence is harmful, fantasy and the typical childhood illusion is counterproductive. Children must be awakened from the dream of being children as soon as possible and instruct them in the study, and the sooner that happens the better ... in short: it is that the happy stage of childhood is harmful and almost like a disease and that the sooner If this disease is eradicated, the child (who will no longer be a child but a kind of computer) can be prepared for the competitive life of the system we live in.
If with the child I had already been perplexed by the parents, I was already speechless.
There is no doubt that in societies where savage capitalism reigns, the child has to be prepared for the harsh life that he will have to live, but this should be a gradual process, always combining it with the promotion of the emotional part (something that certainly does not occurs). It seems to me that taking from a human being one of the best stages of his life, if not the best one - childhood - is in fact provoking a harder life for said human being, a life that will not have had the opportunity to know what it feels like to be a child, without a doubt one of the sensations that nobody should miss.
Worrying where capitalism is leading us, worrisome that societies that call themselves "developed" do not protect children but on the contrary, they intend to eradicate childhood.Ecoportal.net
