no more doors to open

Nikon D80 | 1/640 seconds | f 6.3 | ISO 800 | 62 mm

Today, like the other five days in the last almost twenty years, should have been about change. Or so they stated each four years. I’m talking about the election day. My disappointment isn’t new or unexpected, or as a matter of fact, even important for a large group of people. But it’s mine. Instead of a long expected generation of new politicians, we have the old school boys.. again and one of the most weak voting presence in our short democracy history.

Without any connection, at the first sight, Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher and founder of Taoism, said, in another age, that “one may know the world without going out of doors”. It’s a pity that the people, in particular politicians, that have this strategy in mind omitted the fact that then the resources weren’t so poor and the power so concentrated in the hands of few nations.

Soon won’t be any other door to open. The moment to think about the consequences of our actions it’s now.

The bigger changes never goes fast
For now, he don't has any choice, the country is virtually destroyed and he need help from the old [F]oliticians
The real question is "How many times he has"
