Fets alternatius

Captura de pantalla 2017-01-29 a la(s) 04.24.25Als Estats Units s’ha disparat la venda de la novel·la de George Orwell ‘1984’. Ho confirmen els responsables d’Amazon, que han descobert com des de dissabte passat, un dia després de la pressa de possessió de Donald Trump, les comandes d’usuaris interessats en el llibre de l’autor anglès no paren de créixer.

Quina és la raó d’aquest imprevist interès? Doncs cal buscar-lo en una expressió l’assessora del president, Kellyanne Conway, quan es va qualificar amb l’expressió ‘fets alternatius’ la versió que ha donat la Casa Blanca i el propi President sobre el número d’assistents a la presa de possessió, que diuen va ser superior a la Barack Obama al 2009. Una opinió que contrasta amb les imatges aèries i les dels usuaris dels transports públics que duen a l’esplanada que hi ha davant del Capitoli.

No és una estratègia nova, com molt bé va descriure Orwell obsedit per denunciar els mecanismes de l’estalinisme per manipular la realitat. El que veus, gràcies a un Ministeri de la Veritat, no és el que veus sinó allò que unes ments superiors volen que vegis. I a partir d’aquí tot es pot justificar, a costa de carregar-se la veritat i la llibertat de premsa.

‘Fets alternatius’ és una nova expressió que haurem d’incorporar al nostre vocabulari com ha passat amb la post-veritat i d’altres que en vindran darrera. Em pregunto on ens durà aquesta bogeria, que només serveix per entronitzar la mentida, perquè la realitat és que com a ciutadans som extremadament vulnerables i tenim la massa crítica cada cop més feble.

És difícil fer prediccions, quan les eines a través dels quals es propaguen aquestes falsedats se’ns presenten com a meravelloses joguines amb l’esquer de què ens fan més lliures i globals, que milloren la interrelació, que ens ajuden a comunicar-nos millor i, en definitiva, que ens ajuden a viure en un món on no hi ha fronteres ni límits.

En aquest món globalitzat  una imatge ja no val més que mil paraules. Ens ho diu Trump quan fantasieja amb el periodista de la Fox News amb la xifra d’assistents a l’acte de pressa de possessió. Tot plegat una anècdota, sinó fos perquè darrera les bambolines d’aquest petit detall s’hi amaga la desigualtat i la llei de la selva.
