The rebellion of beauty

Beauty often hides in our prejudice, in the darkness of an illusion

It does not rescue
from pain. It does not make
us immortal. It does not
make us rich.

The strength of beauty
lies entirely in its being
a filter, a screen, a light
turned on against the
darkness.

Even the ugly can
be made wonderful
by beauty:
a devil or a monster

becomes enchanting if
the hand that represents
them is guided by the
beauty of the gesture.

History has
never managed
to give justice
to beauty

During the Middle Ages,
the beauty of God was
narrated, and yet, no one
has ever known of it.

In ancient Greece,
beauty was
proportion:
in sculptural art

and in its comparison to
the human model. Today
beauty is not a model,
but an idea of it.

Beauty is the scratch on
the canvas, the glass of
tipsiness, even the ray
of sunshine

that filters through
the window of a
contemporary recluse
for biological reasons.

Beauty is the moment that rebels against the passing of time.

For many years, humanity has suffered from hunger, to the point that historically fat and voluptuous shapes were considered signs of health and even beauty. Then, when the poor became fat, it was decided that obesity was, according to the World Health Organization "a global health crisis", despite the continuous lengthening of life expectancy over the last half century. A "World Obesity Day" was even established, celebrated on March 4th. Along with many other similar troubles, the "engine" of concern is the US, a country where obesity is strongly present. The cause has also been identified: sugar, especially the ones present in fizzy drinks. This is where the preferred solution comes from almost all public administrations: tax it to discourage its consumption. Result: consumption has been reduced in a negligible way, but in return some money has gone into government funds.

According to a survey by the Global Drug Survey, the average Briton got drunk at least 33 times last year. To avoid all misunderstandings, the definition used for "drunk" was merciless. Respondents were asked how many times they drank so much that "their physical and mental faculties were impeded to the point of seeing their physical balance and verbal ability altered, struggling to put their thoughts in order and showing clearly changed behaviors". The frequency with which the UK population has reached this state in 2020 is the highest among the 25 countries included in the research and more than double the drunken rate of a group of European countries that are already far from abstainers: Poland, Hungary , Germany, Greece, Spain and Italy. But the most curious data concerns the aftermath: the British are the least likely to feel remorse after a hangover, 31% (the Scots are at 33.8%). Colombians, on the other hand, who perhaps have another relationship with stimulants, are ashamed of being drunk in 88.3% of cases.
