Sample text

Considerandoci una dualità positivo-negativa, la risposta è certamente sì, siamo un po’ tutti negativi. Perché attraversati da mille fenomeni, controllabili e irrazionali, antichi e presenti. Fenomeni che ci vedono tutti uguali e tutti diversi: uguali perché parte della specie umana e quindi con funzioni e storia uguali, diversi, perché ognuno ha la sua storia specifica, il suo profilo, le sue tipologie di comportamento soggettivo. Vale a mio avviso comunque il concetto per cui tutti siamo negativi, proprio perché siamo umani, un po’ difettosi di fabbrica e un po’ rognosi, limitati e limitanti nel gioco col mondo.

Esplorando la negatività, le sue irrazionalità, le sue forze insite, possiamo riconoscerla, contenerla, ricavarne informazioni, per ritornare alle possibili soluzioni costruttive e positive. Il concetto che è anche il contesto a renderci negativi, indebolisce la classica dicotomia tra negatività e positività che ci era cara, poiché permetteva una demarcazione netta tra le due parti, tra mele sane e mele marce. Per un sapore pacificamente assolutorio che suona mite “noi siamo i buoni, loro sono i cattivi”.

Fenomeni che ci vedono tutti uguali e tutti diversi: uguali perché parte della specie umana e quindi con funzioni e storia uguali, diversi, perché ognuno ha la sua storia specifica, il suo profilo, le sue tipologie di comportamento soggettivo. Vale a mio avviso comunque il concetto per cui tutti siamo negativi, proprio perché siamo umani, un po’ difettosi di fabbrica e un po’ rognosi, limitati e limitanti nel gioco col mondo. Da qui il termine che ho trovato di negativi similari23, tutti sulla stessa barca!
