Guinness Record / Lilianne Ruíz

The socialist State does not provide the luxury of silence, because it is in silence that our desires speak to us. Such that the State doesn’t cease the liturgy of remembering all the successive years and the heroes of the past, nor does it cease with the maddening and repressive ideological discourse: a discourse intended to hide us from our own selves, to block access to our own personal realm. This discourse is incapable of naming that which brings happiness to humankind. They are discourses that stone to death happiness. Happiness which perseveres in the silence of our homes, and that we are going to marginalize until we believe we have forgotten the songs that move our hearts and suddenly we remember why we’re so miserable.
