An idea for our time

By David Bidussa

In my opinion, a word for this time is redemption. That is, a new beginning which means: things that should not to be repeated; way that should be abandoned; new forms of individual and collective action; a renovated idea of a civil pact to give a new course to our time to live. This idea of redemption is aware its body is immersed in the tight spots of this time, but which cannot help thinking about what comes after, without regrets and with a huge longing for the future.
