The social justice trend experimented by governments has died, together with communism and class parties: no political alliance has been able to demonstrate that egalitarian politics are universally achievable and, without this touchstone, drift of politics has lead to a drift of thought, devoted to an apathetic acquiescence or to an atomist intolerance that both succumb to the noisy buzz of communication’s deluge. Yet we could dismantle indifference and create new critical areas if we found our love of politics again, getting the best out of our past and combining this love with recent experiences. How? Just read this essay and you’ll find out.
