Oscars

January 19, 2016

Could all this Oscar cafuffal finally shift the over enthusiasm and over importance of celebrities and actors in our culture? Do you ever feel that the death or life of someone who is famous for being famous is just a little over played?

 

But is this a response to the fact that real characters (rather than fictitious ones played by actors) are rare in our culture today. We're all increasingly grey: politicians, ministers, presidents are less and less charismatic and more and more stressed and look like they know less and less about how to respond to the needs of our communities and world.

 

Where are the characters that are interesting, colourful, daring, who know their own skin and it is a skin thick enough to receive every blow and not be brought down. We mainly have actors playing those roles rather than the real thing. How risk averse has our culture become that is does not dare anymore or put itself into the firing line and be able to stand up to big debates.

 

Where are the Messiah's and pretenders, the faith leaders who know what they stand for and stand up in colourful, interesting and daring ways...
