What I want to say is that every category is false; we often take it for granted but it is not real. The goods are transversal to each category. There are "honest" criminals with an ethical sense and cops who are the opposite.

For much of my life I hoped to see a joyous multitude of people playing with dreams, but I find myself surrounded by deceased individuals, resigned to be robbed of life. “Blues for outlawed hearts and old whores" is the last book by Massimo Carlotto. This is a post that is also a kind of homage to the career of one of the greatest living Italian writers. Obviously, Carlotto does not shine for his positive outlook on the mental health and above all the ethics of his fellow men. I totally share his opinion.

But I do not want to recommend his books to depress you, but because through his novels, Carlotto undermines one of the most deserved categories: cops = good, criminals = bad guys. Carlotto especially writes about the "losers" and his favorite heroes are criminals and whores. It should not be necessary to explain it, but having this little confidence in human abilities, I prefer to make clear that I'm not trying to say the opposite or: Policemen = bad and criminals = good. What I want to say is that every category is false; we often take it for granted but it is not real. The goods are transversal to each category. There are "honest" criminals with an ethical sense and cops who are the opposite. I have lived my past mostly in antagonistic areas where policemen and magistrates were the "bad". I have to apologize to law enforcement and today I am firmly convinced that the world without them would be a chaos. It is important, however, to be able to see and understand beyond the mental categories, not to be dull by words but to learn to listen. I do not believe, for example, that a doctor is there to keep you healthy, as it may not be a case of treating a prostitute as a lower being because she lives by renting her body. How many of you live by renting time, energy and even life, contributing to "no-cause" causes? If even only 5% of the world's population were able to go beyond the categories, cultivating, as much as they can, a "lateral" look, there would be a real revolution that would be worth starting NOW!
