Buyers in a perfect world



Do we live in a perfect world?

Most of us probably would answer ‘no, it isn’t’ and would give examples from the last bad news of the day.

But the news are only a small part of our life and we pay attention to them because of our experience to meet perfect things everywhere. The advertised things we meet everywhere tell us that they are ready to be sold and bought, that is that they cannot be modified and so they are perfect.

Our obedience to the merchandises and their implicit claim of perfection continue the obedience we shown to our teachers. They gave us the sensation that the things to be learned are also perfect goods and they talked about them with the authority and confidence of a merchandiser. Surely, we knew that the education was meant for our personal development, but our eagerness of learning was mainly caused by the desire to be approved by our teacher and to excel in choosing the right answer.

Be it or not useful for our development, the education prepares us very well for listening to the advertisers and for choosing the supposed best merchandisers.

Only the one who refuses or cannot afford to be essentially a buyer may see the imperfection of the world everywhere. But he should question himself if he really knew to acquire a proper education. If he cannot afford to be a buyer, he may think that he always bears the stigma of being a bad and imperfect pupil in a perfect world.
