"Allness Disease Alert", by Laura Bertone



I will be writing this column from the South, in a spirit of exchange and cooperation, in the belief that the mere fact of exchanging information about other cultures can help us enlarge our viewpoints and constitutes, in itself a good exercise in "otherness", - that is an exercise in shifting positions and understanding better what looks or sounds different.

When I settled back in Argentina in the mid 1990s, after almost 20 years in France, and several trips to the States for GS immersion,
I felt shocked at what appeared to me as too frequent symptoms of the "allness" disease displayed by politicians, officials, authorities in general, many journalists, etc. Time went by and one of the worst latent crises ever in local history came to the surface.

It is interesting to observe, that the "allness disease" - widespread, and specially visible in those who had the chance to be heard by very many - had an impact on people at large: now vast numbers of Argentinians are literally verbalizing their discontent through the expression: "que se vayan todos" = "We want them ALL to leave", or "they should ALL leave" implying ALL politicians, ALL representatives, ALL senators, ALL officials, ALL judges, ALL etc.

Nevertheless, the absurdity of the desire does not conceal the dimension of discontent, anger and impotence shared by the great majority of people. The curious thing is, that confronted now by the mirror of their own disease, some of the representatives - a few politicians, a few journalists, etc. - have started to point out the absurdity of the ALL expression, and the chaos it would create if the wish came true. What is more, some of them have started to convert the "allness habit' into a 'non-allness' attitude, now paying much more attention to what they say and how they say it. I have even heard some correct themselves when speaking in public.

The process is slow, and we will most probably go through some still very difficult periods (a difficult presidential election took place recently). But the interesting thing, it seems to me, is this reversal in attitude among some of those who are often heard by very many. A greater consciousness seems to have been born in them out of the confrontation - in a sort of deforming mirror - between their own "allness disease" , and the much more shocking (to them) "allness" pathology widely expressed by the masses. Is there a greater chance now for the masses to start adopting a non allness attitude? Be that as it may, GS tools could - if widely used - turn out to be extremely useful here and now.
