Profit Motive and the Whispering Wind

Trasfoco: The wind

Since its origins, the history of humankind has been built on the basis of tensions, conflicts, fights, pressures, wars, battles, revolutions, protests and a long etcetera of circumstances which allow room for almost everything except tranquillity and lasting peace. An inner tension is embedded in practically all social structures and all regimes of power are challenged by agents of resistance who fight for freedom and equality. The history of the USA is cut across by this restlessness: thousands of men and women, since the violent arrival of Europeans in the late-fifteenth century, have fought to oppose barbarism and genocide. Today they have been swept away by the soft breeze of time or the hurricanes of history. Nevertheless, the certainty of their strength, discourse and example still remains.
