Des de la frontera. Dietari 1989-1990.
In 1989, Alex Volney is a young man who writes, but he is above all a young man who lives and who has already become emancipated and enjoys a routine and he loves it. The texts in this book are the result of a selection of impressions, anecdotes and opinions that the author left to rest for twenty years. In the form of a diary, it paints a picture of a man who is taken from his usual place in society to serve the Spanish Navy. What differentiates humans from animals is precisely this moral right to reject gregarious life in an increasingly mediocre and violent world. In this twenty-first century, as you all know, before it began, this idea had already failed, but it has not lost its legitimacy even today. On the other hand, a good soldier is one who, like the best firefighters, only seeks to ensure that there is no fire. This book is not a criticism of these people, this diary only tries to reflect how an individual, too, can be able to defend himself against the force that by legal imperative imposed the state, in another time, against the sacred individual freedom, so relevant in the evolution of the little progress that humanity has been making, very occasionally.
