The People

Posted by: | January 16, 2009 | Comments Off on The People

After reading both articles I thought to myself to which one I prescribed to more.  I thought at times I truly feel part of a greater thing, being part of a people but at other times, I love the quiet and can’t imagine living in a loud, populated environment.
I love Evita Perons view as she is someone with a certain amount of power and yet she truly thinks of herself as a lower class.  She findsher strength within the people, all people of Argentina, even those who are poor and have little to offer but faith to something greater.  I love the thought of a belief in something greater than oneself.  I enjoy the idea of finding strength in numbers with people who all have the same common beliefs and values.  I really got a picture of strength from Evita’s message.  She truly portrays someone who deeply cares about the people she is serving, or helping.  She denounces all the people who are against the poor people and any person who falls for wealth and power.  She defines wealth in the form of the people of Argentia, the people who believe that they can make a change and control their destiny.
Any ordinary person can find strength and understand what she is saying, as we are also ordinary.  We the people create our own reaities and the environment around us, which in turn creates the world we live in.  I find Evita’s message very empowering as she speaks to the lower levels of society, the people with all the heart and soul of the Nation.  She is sincere which helps bring her closer to the people in every aspect of society as they start to believe and find strength in her words.
The second reading was not as much so cut and dry.  His essay was busy and seemed filled with anger and resentment for the people around him.  It seems as though all he wants to do is flee from his current situation but he is kept to still tell his story.  It seems he is constantly making fun and putting down the people around him as lesser beings in the grand scheme of things.  He calls them by nicknames always punting out their faults as people.  This reading shows another side to the people.  It shows the horrible side of togetherness, the confining aspect of it.
Both readings speak about freedom in different ways.  Evita is searching for the freedom for her people and the second reading seems to be constanly trying to get freedom, to escape the constancy of the people.  Both shows freedom in a different light, the achievemtn of freedom with or without the help of the people.  It kinda shows us how freedom can be achieved no matter what you believe in. I found the second article interesting in the way he was writing, busy, all over the place at times confusing, which seems to me how a busy metropolis of people would be.
As both these article talk about people in different ways, I am more inclined to feel warmth and comfort and strength in Evita’s message to the people.  I am a huge fan of bringing the poor up to a place of power, and I truly believe that power and strength do lie within the people, which brings a smile to my face.
