InstaLife, InstaLie and Reality: I Have Decided to Be a Good Major of Myself
On the left side, Miguelito advances, all smiling, his hair slicked in a jacquet and an impeccable white shirt. Mafalda welcomes him in the right field with a huge smile and these words
- — Hi Miguelito. How cute you are!
- — And, besides, very clean; Smell how clean. Do you smell it?
- — Mmmmhajhá
- — I have decided to be a good major of myself
Quino’s subtle irony presented, more than 50 years ago! two levels of interpretation on this vignette The superficial and the appearances on the one side, and the depth, taking charge of yourself on the other side. Currently the scrolling down of mobile phones presents the same two levels of reading. It has long been destroying lives the supremacy of the superficial.
This is how young people of the world go. Childishly, naive, showing off, being beautiful for… Nice and neat for… Hairstyling for… Happy for…
Their lives have been affiliated with mere appearance, in the most ominous sense of the word. They live in a permanent political campaign, not even the presidential candidates have dared so much! Their days go by ready for InstaLife, the new addiction that incorporated the worst vices of the worst populist regime.
