Little solidarity, please!
What does solidarity mean?
To be polite, right or useful in society? Or is it just a phenomenon that exists, a lifestyle that provides support?
It is very difficult to define the concept of solidarity because any definition would be incomplete, simply a point of view. Solidarity is in human nature.
The loss of solidarity is the death of humanity, as one implies and nourishes the other as the communicating vessels. When solidarity is weakened, humanism automatically declines. Today's man is suffering from a lack of solidarity, not because of his own fault, but because the source has been exhausted, at the top of the society. Because he feels insecure, endangered, threatened, abandoned, forced to fight the loner for survival, for his own, too much interest in his home and family.
We come from the inheritance and the way of life in the past, from what is called the forethought. But most of the lack of solidarity stems from policy making, which means that the causes are part of the way in which social morality, community cohabitation and the democratic system are built up and which, for a quarter of a century, are under the pressure of the examples of irresistible and aggressive of the ingenuity, inequality, thievery, injustice, and double-mindedness that injects daily the hassle-politics. It was the solidarity of human capitalism, one of the reasons why the Cold War was won over to communism. XVIII, XIX - were softened and extinguished through the implementation of the philosophy of solidarity and humanity, the principles upon which the United Europe was founded.
Now it seems more than normal to be in an unequal society, where each one works and thinks of himself, whereas God let him be mindful of all. Today, we are not equal in prosperity, in the division of national wealth, in values, in merit, in rights and in joys, and above all, in the face of the obligation that solidarity does not give birth to, at least, within the family. The lack of solidarity within the family genus is more difficult to cure than outside the family on the street. When the family produces daily quarrels, murders and conflicts, a phenomenon that occurs in any news edition, then the situation becomes hopeless, impossible to interfere with government and NGO programs, police and courts, with promises parties and lectures of leaders.
Whoever condemns solidarity has condemned coexistence, the nation, the family, the faith and the hope with death. This is the biggest damage done to the nation. Social indifference is becoming one of the major wounds of our civilization. This is not the complete concept and even charity is very often abstract in our great culture today because again we do not involve ourselves directly in the lives of those who need it.
To be solid is not a duty, it is initially a feeling that arises and develops. It is a human value that today, unfortunately, is suffering a crisis. Our society, unfortunately, becomes less solid. Consequently, even less humane. The loss of solidarity is the death of humanity, as one implies and nourishes the other as the communicating vessels. When solidarity is weakened, humanism automatically declines.
Because he feels insecure, endangered, threatened, abandoned, forced to fight the loner for survival, for his own, too much interest in his home and family.
The reasons for the collapse of solidarity, of this fundamental and primary requirement for a peaceful and democratic society are many. They are also historic. We live in society, but we are unchecked. That social being, but without donating mutual solidarity.
This is the biggest damage done to the nation.
Undoubtedly, it is a known phenomenon that the development of individualism has weakened the ways of human attachment and especially the mechanisms of civic solidarity, as society is gradually being taught to live alone within itself, often satisfied with the practice of life in the plight. We seek our entertainment electronically, which reduces our interaction with other members of the community. Indeed, communities are more and more virtual, which creates a whole set of fresh problems for true solidarity. It is clear that some sort of selective solidarity is still possible, especially if we re-establish solidarity as "charity." But charity is just a solidarity result. This is not the complete concept and even charity is very often abstract in our great culture today because again we do not involve ourselves directly in the lives of those who need it.
I am aware that many people know Mother Theresa as a symbol and a concrete scroll that she has been trying to create a world based on solidarity and caring for others. We are not she... But each of us can play an important role in society.
An old saying says: "No one was impoverished by donating" - and this does not mean the financial aspect, but the human aspect, from whom we are called "human beings".
