ALMEIDA, Alexandre Patricio de  and  NETO, Alfredo Naffah. No more! The wickedness of Cronos, the elderly and the current brazilian scenario. J. psicanal. [online]. 2020, vol.53, n.99, pp. 167-182. ISSN 0103-5835.

The article launches some reflections on being elderly in the current Brazilian scenario. To this end, reference is made to the letter left by actor Flávio Migliaccio before committing suicide. Arguing the wickedness of Cronos, the ruling time and imperative of finitude, we discuss the social and cultural conditions of a society crossed by fascist imperatives and plagued by the uncertainties of the eminent pandemic. In this sense, the concepts of denial and ethics of care are explored, both thought from the theory of Sándor Ferenczi. Finally, the importance of education is highlighted as a prospect of hope for the future.

Keywords : elderly; fascism; suicide; education; Sándor Ferenczi.
