Madrid, 11.3.2004


The news from Madrid about the train bombings is paralyzing.

Such fanatic actions are like bullets fired into the spine of human culture. Actions like these provide political institutions with fuel for group hysteria and preemptive thinking; creating excuses to push agendas, start wars, call for zero tolerance and to spend billions on paranoia technology instead of education, solidarity and culture. Those who invest in TNT must realize that their bombs fit perfectly into the plans of political structures that don't want to talk about new ways to deal with old problems. The symbiotic relationship of terror and politics creates a destructive insanity in which globalization and media is complicit.

In order to address these problems we must develop productive ways to increase cultural understanding within our existing social systems.

The etoy.AGENTS express their deep sympathies to the people who suffer from these violent attacks.
