Catch-22

Publicado em 12/06/2021

A catch-22 is a paradoxical situation from which an individual cannot escape because of contradictory rules or limitations.

There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one’s safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn’t, but if he were sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn’t have to, but if he didn’t want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.

— Joseph Heller, Catch-22

Pordata.

Em 1974, 56,6% do PIB traduzia-se em salários de quem trabalhava e criava riqueza, a poupança era de 18,1%. Em 2019, os salários representam apenas 35,1% do PIB e a poupança 4,9% (Pordata). Se juntássemos o nível de desigualdade incomparável e retirássemos o que a esquerda apelida de “1%”, estes números teriam ainda outra expressão. Está a ser bonita a festa, pá!

Ao fim do dia, aparecem os cães, os gatos e os morcegos, e sento-me no quintal a pensar nas coisas e como elas são. Lá no fundo treme o halo da televisão.
