Zygmunt Bauman

November 22nd, 2012

Hardly if it can contest the fact of that it, with effect, does not authorize no reply to this questo.' ' (WEBER, 1993, p.18) Leaving of the concept of ' ' desencantamento of mundo' ' we can search some relations with the concept of ' ' modernity lquida' ' considered for Zygmunt Bauman. For the author the metaphor ' ' modernity lquida' ' it points some characteristics of this time that you beginning with the modernity, marked for the invasion of the instrumental rationalism, for the new technologies, the capitalist development, the globalization, the rationalization and the scientific development. Bauman affirms the modernity-liquid (or after-modernity) as a moment of ' ' melting of slidos' ' , they are values and scientific conceptions, theories, technologies, economic model and even though behavior standards. According to author, the solids if keeps and possesss durability while the liquids have the slightness capacity, always has flexibility and malleability, being ready if to adapt. ' ' But modernity was not a process of ' ' liquefao' ' since the start? He was not ' ' melting of slidos' ' its bigger pastime and main accomplishment? In other words, modernity was not ' ' fluida' ' since its conception? ' ' (BAUMAN, 2001, p.9) This characteristic liquidity of after-modernity points a moment fruit of a movement where some basic changes had occurred. We can detach the English Industrial Revolution of century XVIII as one of the events that had inaugurated modernity (previous period to liquid modernity). The Revolution brought obtains the capitalist ideal of material productivity and speed as quality standard. This ideal if firmed as one of the great bases of modernity and also of after-modernity. E, inside of this context, new positions and standards of behavior had appeared. A new economic model (capitalism) started to dictate new rules to this society appeared of the attempt of melting of old social standards.

Who in the capital already did not see for the window of the car or the bus, devoid communities, that we vulgarly call slum quarter, with children playing in the way of garbage and dirty streams. They are common scenes in a city with more than 22 million inhabitants. For these children, who for diverse reasons meet in this situation, they remain it to it solidarity of the public agencies or the civil population. what more it can lack for them? This was one of the questions that came in cabecinha of a girl of human and sincere heart, BIA, to dedicate the cause to it and to make the difference in the life of hundreds of children. It started keeping to bullets and candies that earn in day-by-day and asked for to the father so that it distributed in the Christmas in one of these communities. The Group TO LOOK AT OF BIA, name inspired for the proper name of garotinha that it thought very about the devoid children; our small BIA. As &#039 says the verse of music; ' Salt of terra' ' , of the composers Beto bastos Guedes and Ronaldo: Better to join our forces; it is alone to distribute the bread better. ' ' our work started in 2006 of simple form when BIA and the father had been to make the first distribution of sachets of bullets in the Christmas of that year.

The group if formed with the inspiration of the BIA father, Mr. Ricardo, thought and said why not to form a group and to start to make the charity, distributing bullets, toys, gifts, etc in the festive dates that happen in the year, as Passover, day of the children, day of the mothers, days of the parents, Christmas, among others. To give continuity to the work, the group if congregates periodically to search the places and events that will be prepared in the commemorative dates.

To inform the schools and community the importance of the garbage collection produced in the schools and the city, and to stimulate its participation in this activity, clarifying that all garbage must be collected correctly (selectively), acquiring knowledge the population how much to the preservation of the environment. This trend of the ambient education (…), leaves of being politically neutral, when going beyond the consequences of the ambient crisis. It consolidates an argument that legitimizes the critical one to the capitalist system, evidencing that the cause of the ambient degradation is the same one of the social degradation. It argues the ways of appropriation and private use of the natural resources and human, it points the conflicts ambient partners from there happened, and identifying not only the ambient degradation, but also critical of its effect (Layrargues & Loureiro, 2000, p.6). Ahead of the reality found in the daily one of the marapaniense population the development of activities becomes important that can stimulate children and adults the conservation and preservation of the rivers and fens of the region, in which today it meets total fragilizados and poludos for the man. It is evident that when plays garbage in the port where fishing bring alongside its canoes and boats of fish, will consequently go to poluir this environment, because these lixos contain toxic and dangerous substances for the environment and that live in it. , Becoming very thus difficult the life of the beings that inhabit there as the plants and the fish. The collection of the garbage is made two or three times per week of well archaic form, in a dump-cart of the city hall with all the mixed lixos, after the collection, are always in the city the residues in the way, however that garbage left for the community in the port of the fishing continues there until turning a mountain.
