Once again, El Roto’s comic strip in the January 25 El País was fantastic!

The confusion, the mist in so many dimensions, the distractions that prompt passiveness and indifference, replacing democratic principles for the laws of the market,... lead to isolation, a lack of solidarity and fear. And what is worse: in doubt of the human capacity to face challenges.

Human beings are characterized by their unique powers of creativity, for being able to anticipate and foresee and deliberately design their own futures. If we are capable of understanding the depth that these distinctive characteristics afford us, we will be able to ensure that hope infuses our minds, and not panic.

Watchtowers for tomorrow, confident of the immeasurable strength of the spirit.
