THAT MEANS A BOOK IN MEXICO?
A few years ago I was posed the dilemma of taxing Or not tax books on Mexico. Considering that people read here, tax books was and is a capital aberration.
Today we no longer worry about that. Today we worry about whether we will be alive at the end of the day. However, the book is still not found a solution to save today convulsed Mexico.
So reflection is still valid: That means a book in Mexico?
When you hear that the book is intended to tax the VAT on new features, including food and medicine are two things one can think, that this is uninformed economists whose heritage of technical issues related to their profession is reduced. If you intend to tax the book is supposed to have in their hands a previous study to know everything about the book, which in the end is made by people outside the books.
Or is that such action obeys a sinister plan to promote collective ignorance and make this country a general world of workers, masons, craftsmen and technicians? and a very small of professionals and leaders to guide them.
Obviously all walks of VAT to book, go against education in Mexico in all items. The excuses are many. The truth is that general education in Mexico is still a reflection of the old positivism, which believes in a pedagogy for the rapid formation of nations; machines that will produce and pursue a specialization.
Politics certainly wrong.
For Mexicans of the third millennium is denying them the tools for a fulfilling life and human culture. The educational pragmatism is always counterproductive specialist, technical ignorant or ignorant economist produces less and produces evil, because he thinks less and think wrong.
It is said there that Germany produces excellent soaps because Kant wrote Critique of Pure Reason. It is proven as it is now reading this and you are breathing, that literary culture is essential in any profession. If people can not express in their language, thinking not know their language and therefore can neither be a good human being and a good citizen profesionista.
Therefore it is a scandal the quality of education in Mexico and if we add the measures to be taken for Treasury resources such as VAT on tuition or tax collection at the sacrifice of hours reading millions of Mexicans then the outlook is bleak.
Before this crime committed without punishment, we attentive called guideline head Conaculta to take action and avoid the damn temptation to tax the book today we are on time and persuade legislators further taxation to tax books.
Because deleting the books is that the words, the language, the one that teaches you to think, to dream, to take responsibility, to rebel, to choose and if he can not be responsible for culture in this country and the Secretary of Education teach children to dream traveling with their language since elementary school, our country will continue to target the be a nation disintegrated half illiterate, half-baked people like today are millions of us.
In France and England, the need to know the language well underlined. French children of eleven and twelve have read all his classic quote Moliere, Descartes and Pascal, recite poems of Eluard, Prévert and Desnos.
It is impossible to forget that every book is the son and the father of another book. From Homer to Joyce, everything is influence. But Shakespeare and Cervantes are the first to clearly establish the boundaries of any written literary work: the play within a play in Hamlet, reading Don Quixote, Don Quixote himself.
The surprise is that the Bible, one of the most important books and extraordinarily written ... would be taxed. This is a challenge to all power. It is a challenge to the desire to write. Arrogance and the need to communicate pleasure, since all reading, inevitably will result in writing. What would have happened in the time of Moses, if you could read little, he had been taxed empires and monarchies? If that which perished absurd is now a reality, prepare to soon pay tax on the air we breathe or the number of sunbeams settle on your skin.
No need to tell me, dear reader, to know that you as a citizen and voter reader is beyond being a guinea pig, or why be taken as a hostage to cynical privileged financial losers in a country where precisely the opportunities to talents not hanging from the trees.
If well taught literature in Mexico, our cities would be more beautiful, more humane and livable, because its inhabitants would require more and more. Our cities are a reflection of the inconsistency and mediocrity of the education provided in our country. Then add VAT to the book, practically putting education with the neck on the guillotine. Do you allow it?
