What are we to do in such depressive times when dreams seem to fade away?
Is really the only choice we have between nostalgic rememberance and the cynical realisation that any attempt to change the situation had to fail?
No, we should bring in the perspective of the future that lies dormant in the hidden potential of the present. But such signs of the future are discernible only from an engaged position.
All we can be certain of is that the existing system cannot reproduce itself indefinitely. A new war in the Middle East, an economic chaos or an extraordinary environmental catastrophe can switfly change the coordinates of our predicament.
