So what do we do now?

We have to fight for this country to succeed.

Today’s world is capitalist. And even in Cuba itself, an employee has to perform at his or her job. To be useful to the company and to society. Then, whether you collect in food stamps or in dollars, it’s something else. But we all have to be useful to the system for society to function. Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with it; on the contrary, I believe that human beings feel better when they are useful to something.

In Argentina, decades of parents who feel useless are going by. Families wounded to death, whose children are now entering the labour market, without the slightest hope of anything. Guys who are only interested in getting paid at the end of the month. A career? It’s not important. Progress? Unthinkable. They have an absolute disinterest in participating, in being useful, in improving and learning. If they are thrown out, they don’t worry too much; it’s a situation they lived with throughout their formation. The fact that they grew up in the immediate digital age does not exactly help. For the “now”, the “now”, and because it puts things at their fingertips that can be obtained with effort and work, or by stealing.

It is clear that they have no future, and that the country where they are going to live has no chance of being successfully included in the new scheme, where millions of jobs will disappear and everything in the labour market will be converted.

So what do we do now? If we love them, if we care a little, we must fight for this country to succeed. And with the longer and longer life perspectives, we must even do it for ourselves. What a pity to have to think about this as one of the richest countries in the world….
