Life expectancy has increased significantly in recent years

According to available data, the average life expectancy in the world stood at 67.2 years.
There are countries that have a higher life expectancy, is the case of Japan, with 82.6 years, Hong Kong 82.2 years, 81.8 years Iceland, Switzerland 81.7 years, Australia 81.8 years, followed by Spain and Sweden with 80.9 years. Life expectancy in the United States is 78.11 years according to the CIA Facebook.

This increase in life expectancy, has brought new opportunities for society in general and for each one of us, which we will face aging and old age as a new stage of life, which can take even sometimes , full advantage. Especially because at that stage, usually reaches a greater family stability and economic emotional. There is already retired, working life is already closed, the children are grown and groomed, the house, furniture and car paid. It's also that time of life that you realize the brevity of life and that death is coming naturally. Therefore, let it brings to the superfluous, the secondary material and bet it all on what is really important: in self and family and those closest. One begins to have more time for himself, for socializing, recreation, travel, reading a book, watch that show or that museum, deals with the time and mind to what really gives us pleasure. There are more and more pensioners and the elderly who rely on their self-worth: many go to the Universities of old age, they enter the fear, insecure, shy and introverted and, soon, "open", live, participate, beyond all barriers, technological and even become realized beings, independent, secure and confident and even healthier physically and mentally.In modern societies, the elderly are becoming more and have a growing burden. Thus appear increasingly communications and messages addressed to the theme of old age and aging, and take various media communication, written, oral, visual and audio technologies.
Old age, old age and all the surrounding issues have a growing space in newspapers, magazines, radio, television, Internet, messaging with more general and more specialized.Old age and old age are viewed increasingly with greater ease and begin to have a separate status.


This has been helped several factors such as self-worth and personal achievement, progress of medicine, even in terms of wellness and beauty treatments, and the contribution of images of various icons of our time going forward, despite their advanced ages, full of life and activity and with a freshness and beauty still thriving. We have the example of Meryl Streep and Sophia Loren that do not appear, but they have fabulous 74 years.
There is increasingly a greater number of lines of support for the elderly, are free funded by state and some public institutions and private and other paid and in various media, telephone, Internet, and more or less specialized to support differentiated.
Appear on the net are also several blogs, convivial exchange of experiences, support human, social, health etc.. For example, all hospitals in the country, have a league of friends of the Hospital, who work very worthwhile in terms of human and social support, especially among patients most in need, and unfortunately, the elderly are those who most need support, when they are thrown into a hospital bed, despised by all and everyone, especially family members. When all fail, the volunteers are there every day to give that support, that word friend.

The "Dictatorship" of the West is a direct consequence of not listen to the older

All the concepts that we internalize our learning throughout life, are strait-jacket by our culture, religion, habits, traditions, geographic area, human, professional, convivial, family, etc.. Do not leave, therefore, to be parceled and theoretical insights born of prejudice of all kinds, often turn into real distortion of reality but this truly universal, worldwide.
The various civilizations of the world have reached different levels of development between them. For example the Greek civilization. The Aztec, the Egyptian and many others, had its heyday in antiquity. Also beliefs and religions were also growths and developments dumas different to the others. The history of civilizations between crosses often with the religions.
The Western world around the years 1990, achieved a certain fullness of true human values and morals, where the man was almost in the center of the landing of the decisions. In recent years, thanks to several factors, but mainly the fact that the younger generation who has the power of the moment, completely flouting the teachings that older people, grandparents, parents and teachers they were transmitting. Thus annihilated by land and put these pillars of civilization also very abstract thing that the visor and obtrusa which is called globalization / free market / competition. People no longer have any value, lost all their rights, such as data acquired so far. The important thing is the market and not the individual, the economy has to function or to terminate all the factories and productions in the West, even if unemployment increases, since the financial service sectors and fill their pockets all is well. This guideline is correct so that the great global crisis that arose however, maybe it was virtual, after governments fail to appreciate the help banks with millions of euros and dollars, to rescue the financial sector must have been virtual, because everything also continues as before.
So that the araltos the world, absolute masters of the "single truth", they make use of the freedoms that Western democracies will allow me, for debiting their own concepts of good and evil, right and wrong, the ugly or beautiful, free or oppressive, as if they were universal and supreme.
The world does not need paternalism nor the "truths" or "unique views", focused on the navel of each, of each civilization.

No people or perfect or more advanced civilizations, they have no authority to override any other.
We all Western, we realize that even in advanced democracies where the annihilation of basic human rights, to enact wars, sometimes in return for economic interests, and in consequence of which many of our die.
Tolerance, humility, openness, it should focus on what is really important in life. That is the very life of the human person, the living nature. And all this is not confined to our family, our city, our country, our civilization is universal across all ethnic groups and civilizations, all creeds and religions, we should respect and accept differences and only then can we be men of true fulfillment.

The Masters of Looking

The elders taught us that the world should be viewed, free of prejudices and preconceived ideas.

The view, the look should be clean and pure stripped of external loads. The beauty is pure and virgin and is the essence of life. Only that way we can appreciate the simple intensity of day renancer, rays of sun hitting the window, wind blowing, the rain we fall asleep, the darkness of evening.

Children in their pure innocence can be true masters of the look, they see everything in its essence and fullness of supreme beauty and goodness. After growing up and suffer the metamorphosis of this vile world, materialistic and dehumanized. Her gaze is distorted and blurry, full of ideas and prejudices, and of having assets, power, command, of subjugation, this harsh and sad reality we call life.

Later when the old knocks on the door, we reach the real level of wisdom, the end is closer, things lose their meaning hollow and flabby, only interested in saving what is truly important. What we looked so small and trivial to be replaced by another demension. Wake up, peek the day outside, see the children playing in the street, look at the dog around, talking with friend of the 5th left, call the child and say hello. At that time we return again to be masters of the look, so shut up and initiates the cycle of learning the look.
