And there’s more. I also know many beautiful actresses . I meet frequently with the literati . I am a personal friend of Machado . Sometimes I tell him : ” how Machadinho my brother ? ” – And he responds : ” We are there , let’s taking .” It’s a very unique subject . ( Gogol , free adaptation) .
1. A street cut by winds towards the north . The curb a gasoline tank rusty , old and abandoned , another three steps ahead , heading in the wind , something that should be a bank teller , probably ” violated ” and robbed is fallen and exposed like a skeleton denouncing the failure of progress . Nothing on this street that represents the scope of thought , so everything is dead . In photographs War disclosed in our textbooks , the scene described above holds close bond , they mingle , meet and fade into consciousness. The abandoned tank integrates the landscape , part of the common everyday things and men , both – men and things – have only one function: utility. After the resignation of the meaning and concept by replacing the formula , the natural man became a grotesque scene photography , the war was accepted , worse … was legitimized by the administrative pattern that hangs over all spheres of society . The old tank rests on the ground , and its configuration in space confirms the hypothesis that self-preservation of the dominated is effective in the knowledge that nothing can be better than that, hiding the unforgiving reaches of the division of labor , where growth and production riches establish a dynamic and negative inversely proportional to the human spirit , the greater the wealth produced in bourgeois self-preservation ensured by science and capital , the lower the potential to make man as man . In this dire scenario , the myth of Sisyphus devotes the day to day of being indifferent to the abandoned tank and turn the abandoned tank to be indifferent . In this sweet and gentle man , who constantly down the mountain again to lift the large rock to its summit , the absurdity is configured in the reification of its meaning to life . As convicted, the men seem to refugee camps, fill all trains to take them to work and again the image is revealed in the written confession of demonstrating the falsity of the scene.
There it fetishism guaranteed by the phantasmagoria of the scene , and lapses of “freedom ” to the holidays , when despair is revealed in the kilometric queue of cars observed and administered as a guarantee of standards of happiness given by work, a real scene of refugees . The dynamic urban works with inflows ebbs and beings that permeate the structure of consumption ensuring for all , access to goods , the only possible ideal realization . Hides behind the image , however , the characteristic feature of the continuity of your planning that is : proper maintenance of antagonistic class interests . The struggle thus reveals itself and the image of passivity – peaceful mind on the eyes and conscience , that there is as a result of an accumulation of social work , or as a commodity . The streets , alleys and boulevards become merchandise . And as such , retain the specificity of the status quo . Thus , the tank reveals the impending conflict image : first, as animal nature , and waste destruction , on the other hand, as a progress ratio and functionality. Both aspects are mutually deny when , however , is to pair the denial and affirmation in writing that shows the image of the old tank, reveals that in contemporary capitalist society there is a creation of values that is not guaranteed to some superior being , or in an ideal addition as Nietzsche supposed , but corresponding to the bourgeoisie and its low values arising from the merchandise . Progress then refuses and the reason becomes irrational. This problem can be demonstrated at least aspect that surrounds the urban structure ensuring that the functional value lost before the tank it becomes inert to all, this result also occurs with the man abandoned on a street somewhere . In its uselessness against the consumption of surplus bourgeois man enters the picture of the tank and , therefore , we see the scene of the old war photography . You need to give in to the mythology of progress and to join hands with their structure securitarian if it not want to succumb to the structure imposed urbanistically . In it there are pockets to vent repression of the week , ensuring the functionality and access to buy and sell his devices .
In this dynamic childishness reverberates in taste fragile and futile , condensing the mass to a desperate retreat pitiful , where , away from the tank and the man abandoned, locked in a window frame without the desire to purchase is made . Nevertheless , the current administration that make transport much apparently only a means to drive the mass euphoric and empties it into temples of consumption, we also become open to backing the indignados who watch your movies and favorite pieces in the comfort of a theater in the prime area of the city . The subject is only to consume , behold the revelation of the image in writing. Every setback to thinking surrounding is heard , however, as mystical awe of someone who does not know what to say , or even originality of form without content . Indeed , the angry are accepted , but always with an eye on it ensures that one advocating his madness . The brutality with which fits the individual is so unrepresentative of the true quality of the men and the value is the use of objects . And this looks peaceful regularity dehumanizes man up about the scope of reason given .
After the withdrawal of the purchase , the city administration as a result of socio-historical process , makes volver man docile in the conduct of their body and their individual traits characteristic functions and demanding their return to the sad human infertility facing the gloomy picture on your door , which conceals from consciousness trait deepest of human history : the class struggle , now hidden by the blindness and deafness of the capital with its apparatus and stark imagery . If you were previously theological myths , today is the myth of bourgeois reason that hides the functionality of its existence guaranteed in commodity form . Men in the homogenization embrace their opaque world and become barbarians each other. So , on Sunday the Sisyphos return to rescue his rock down the mountain, encountering the man and the tank .
