Padre Jony Video 6: Aborregau

Padre Jony has just released his sixth video for his anti-aborregamiento campaign. There is no official narrative yet for this new video. The term "aborregau" has no strict English equivalent. It basically means acting like a "borrego", a sheep who follows what everyone else is doing. The campaign is a protest against the kind of mindless conformity that young people seem to fall into. This conformity keeps the young people from exploring ideas and roles that might interest them because of what others might think, and also makes them succumb to destructive behaviors and relationships under peer pressure. Padre Jony wants today's youth to pursue their dreams, critically evaluate the information they are given, and start thinking about what they can do to make the world a better place instead of just "going along to get along".
