Build, dismantle, rebuild
Our opinion about the world has consequences; the human being is responsible for the way in which he forges them: analyzing its own approaches, knowing its own prejudices, detaching itself from its own
interests, are moral obligations to which every human being must respond. Laziness before the knowledge of the truth, about oneself or about the world, makes us inexcusably guilty.
There are many factors that intervene or alter in some way the formation of a judgment: prejudices (preconceived ideas about reality), interests, the influence of society's thinking and the opinion of others (attitude often subject to fear of the image we project), the appearance, to which there is often an
uncritical adherence ... All these attitudes are reflected in one way or another in some of the characters, thus composing a social microcosm, a reflection of enclosed human models in a room. There is only one way to overcome these barriers: reflection.
