We have a cordo-Japanese government

If we do not return to the culture of respect, the country will remain unviable. And the government has to and is promoting that return.


Now, the government is cordoJapanese. I explain.

I feel very, very sorry when I walk around the neighborhood and the people on the block don't greet me. It gives me a lot, a lot of anger when I go in or out of somewhere, I hold the door to a woman or an elderly person and they don't thank me. Same when I let another car in front of me, when it's not your place. Or a pedestrian crossing in red. I hate it when at a trade I don't get the money or the card ticket in my hand, and they leave it on the counter. When the seller doesn't respond to my “Good morning”. I hate them.

It would be so much better, even for oneself, to be polite and courteous

as if we would start avirtuous circle,where the good wave goes and goes back. You may have a bad day and no desire to smile at a stranger, but it would do you and the stranger good. Sure, it costs a little more than putting upite face; how to do things right. Until you get used to it. We'd get used to it quickly. Believe me.

These customs are being lost even in the villages

This beautiful thing about the people who enter a bowling alley and greet everyone, own and outsiders. It was many decades of degrading education and good manners. Of exalting the vulgar as virtue. We should get that joys thing back, for our own sake, more than anything.

To close, I tell you about the people of Talleres de Córdoba, when he plays away

He leaves the locker room, leaving him in the same conditions of order and cleanliness that he was found in. Impeccable. No waste or garbage out of the bins. They even leave a note of appreciation for the hospitality. They do this in every division, wherever they go. A respect that must not be a coincidence emanating from a club in the interior . The Japanese do the same when they retire from the stadium. They take away their garbage and pick up what others left behind. Another town with a huge culture of respect.

Undoubtedly, the Government has made many mistakes in the economic sphere (the vast majority were inevitable, because of the dead they received), but if there is one thing that it is doing very well, it is to revalue respect for the other, for dissent, for the institutions, for the truth. - Yeah . And this is essential. It is impossible to rebuild a society devastated by corruption, drug trafficking, patronageand political subjugation, tightening, denigrationof the opponent, if we do not start with respect. And it would be very good if all the governors, mayors, deputies and senators imitate a bit of the Cordobes or the Japanese, beyond taking fernet or eating sushi.
