The farm life unfair situation
WE ARE CANGING THIS BLOG NAME, WE ARE GOING TO CALL IT, BABY RAFAEL STORY. While we are posting Baby Rafael story, we will also post some grandpa life story, because even an old-man life story could be compared to todays' way of life.
Welcome to our blog, Baby Rafael story plus
and this post, the farm life unfair situation
- The farm life unfair situation
These types of animals in the photos were the animals that I and other young people like me had to look after in the farm, when we were young. Farm animals need to be fed, watered, and groomed every day, so it is a never ending job to look after them
The farm life
Dear readers, this
post is the continuation of our last post, my farm life experience, where we
were about to talk my farm life unfair situation. Now, this situation that I am
talking about here was most unfair to us youths, because it affected only us in
the farms, but not all the young citizens of this somewhat rich rural town of
Genzano di Lucania, because they would be living a better life in town; (Here
rich rural town means only Genzano town, by comparison to other rural towns of
southern Italy that surround it).
So, as it happened
then, we a portion of the young citizen of Genzano became caught in a
disadvantaged position including myself, and this position would affect us very
badly for the rest of our lives; but we didn’t know then, that it was going to
be a disadvantaged position for us in the future, and we did not know what else
to do either, and there was nothing that could be done either. The few
exceptions who were not put at a great disadvantaged position were those youths
which their families were rich enough land owners, because it would always be
an advantage for them to stay in the farms and learn their future trade and
then use their farm knowledge in the future to their advantages, in their own
family farms, if they had a large enough farm to run.
But for the rest of
us young men, who were working in small farms like myself, and did not own
enough land to secure a good living in the future, what we were doing then,
would turn into a disadvantaged position later, but at the same time we had no
other opportunities in life but to continue the old tradition of farming, just
because this same tradition of farming had been a way of life to the rural
community of this agricultural town for centuries before us, and therefore,
when I was young it was thought to be the only way to earn a living, if you
happened to own any land at all, so we had to be trained to be farmers in order
to look after our own small farm when we would become older, and anyhow, in
those times there was not much else that could be done, but this helping in the
farm and training to be a farmer for us became a great disadvantage, because of
the changes that followed in farming later on. This way of living that I am
talking about here would be better understood, if you read this other article
that we have written in Hub Pages, Farming today compared to the old way, in this hub we are
describing how farming is changed and other ways of life as well.
Anyhow let us go
back to my main story, now to tell you the truth and be fair here, I may have
to add that there were also a few other youths working, that their families
were so poor and they were also working in the farm like us, by looking after
the farm animals and other small tasks, they had no land at all, so they worked
in the farm just to be fed and a few other things, or a very small pay, if the
farmer could afford that, those were really hard times then.
could be blamed for putting us youths in such a position, which in the end
would result for us in a disadvantaged position: because the very same way of
life had served the same community of farming well for centuries, and those
people did not feel disadvantaged and were not disadvantaged at all then, just
because in those times, people used to accept life the way it was, as long as
they had enough food on their table every day and perhaps a few other things,
they were happy. But today because of the enormous change of the modern era,
which has brought with it also changes in the value of work that any worker
does, so life is a lot better than it used to be, which is a good thing. But
for this same reason, by comparison we became greatly disadvantaged. But this
is not all, because there are a lot more that can be said, about the way we
became and the ways that we were treated from the rest of the town community,
which was not the best, as I will tell you later.
Anyhow, at this
point of time I want to make this observation, which is that we seem to be born
with a sort of destiny, because we are born in certain families, we follow the
same path of our family, so let us talk about my own destiny.
I believe that I
have said already enough in this post, so, I will write about my own destiny in
our next post.
See you soon.
