Excerpt:

Yet why do we still retain symbols that no longer exist? One of the answers might be that as humans we want to see the world as a stable place and tend to rely on things that seem to be stable. Over time things change. It is a natural process. But we do not want changes. We cling to the idea of “stable things.” This idea of stability becomes a habit. Because of our tendency to be attached to this habit, any change brings pain when it occurs.

Contributor to The Emblem of Instability - translator and writer Sophie Halimi - "Modern Instabilité: Youth and Employment in France and China" - Part 19 of our serialized Emblem of Instability (around the world). Excerpt:

"With China’s demographic development and economic growth, the sector of services has exploded, and lots of small businesses have emerged on the market. When directors need to hire new employees, it has become tougher than ever as offers now outpace demand. Indeed, in some areas, there are too many jobs available and a small population of young active workers to hire. We – kids who have grown up with the idea that we are very unique, special, amazing, strong, clever and irreplaceable – have power. And where there is power, there is constraint. Employers need to hire a fresh and effective workforce, but the population of young workers is not willing to work as hard as previous generations."

Guest contributor to The Emblem of Instability - translator and writer Vuka - "My Intimate Imbalanced Inclination: Serbia" - Part 18 of our serialized Emblem of Instability (around the world). Excerpt:

"So when exactly did we lose our sense of agency which was so present in the small clubs of Yugoslavia and is now lacking in contemporary entertainment arenas where the spectator profile resembles that of an audience at a bullfighting arena? Why are we going to a concert in the first place? Because we need fresh background for our next selfie? Is it politically correct to attend a concert organized by men who think their profit comes before the well-being of a lady in distress?

Guest contributor to The Emblem of Instability - translator and writer Jonay Quintero Hernández - "Embracing Instability: Spain" - Part 17 of our serialized Emblem of Instability (around the world). Text in both original Spanish English and revised English. Excerpt:

"While the generation of our parents defined themselves by their oficios (carpenter, farmer, plumber, nurse, etc.) we are forced to undergo a few momments of embarrassment when asked the sempiternal conversation starter: what do you do? (my goodness, can anybody see how inappropriate and rude this question can be?), above all if the inquirer has got a job and the inquired one hasn’t got any, in that case I should regard it as an insult and claim propper satisfaction by smacking the other’s face with my glove.  In this context, one feels unsure about deciding whether to answer wholeheartedly with a V-sign accompanied by a four letter word of medieval origin, or uttering a hesitant it depends....I can be a writter, translator, interpreter, proofreader, editor, web designer, digital marketer, subtitler, localizer, programmer, video editor, woodworker, and sometimes I even make bracelets that I sell on Etsy."

Guest contributor to The Emblem of Instability - translator and writer Raphael Caetano - "Instabilidade emocional: Brazil" - Part 16 of our serialized Emblem of Instability (around the world). Text in both original Brazilian English and revised English. Excerpt:

"A bout of instabilidade emocional can last until you have enough motivation and energy to renew your cycle.

The semantics of thought creation may come in handy as a channel to generate continued manifestations of instabilidade and to make the sensorial changes be observed more actively.

When a person is emotionally unstable, they do not have much control over their decision-making. Therefore it is important to be accompanied by someone of trust so that the sensorial affectation does not lead to actions that such a person might regret in the future.

The desire to take action is much stronger when the indivíduo is emotionally unstable."

Guest contributor to The Emblem of Instability - translator and writer Ashutosh Mitra - "The Instability of Change: India" - Part 14 of our serialized Emblem of Instability (around the world). Text in both original Indian English and revised English. Excerpt:

"The common understanding of the word instability is somewhat negative, but at times some cases of instability act as a foundation for long-term stability. In India, we can find many such examples in the course of its development as an independent nation. We faced instability due to partitioning during independence, as one of the biggest man-made migrations in modern world history took place. Later, we fought five full-scale wars and defended our borders. The country has seen three major assassinations (Gandhi, Indira and Rajiv) and has faced uncertainty as a result of them. These were instances of instability that really affected us badly and in some cases we are still feeling the repercussions."

Guest contributor to The Emblem of Instability - translator and writer Antonia Sousa - "Social and Economic Instabilidade: Portugal" - Part 13 of our serialized Emblem of Instability (around the world). Text in both original Portuguese English and revised English. Excerpt:

"The errors of the past have not been assimilated, understood or used to improve the country. Most of the politicians and lawmakers are still more interested in creating ways to defend the rich and powerful; the justice system does not work equally for everyone; schools, hospitals and health centers are still being closed for unjustifiable reasons. People are being punished with austerity and sacrifices, being forced to pay for something they do not owe, for something they did not do."
