By Zygmunt Bauman,Ezio Mauro

we live in an open sea, stuck up in a continual wave, with out mounted aspect and no software to degree distance and the path of shuttle. not anything seems to be as an alternative from now on, and very much appears to be like to haven't any position in any respect. the foundations that experience given substance to the democratic ethos, the process of principles that has guided the relationships of authority and the ways that they're legitimized, the shared values and their hierarchy, our behaviour and our existence kinds, needs to be noticeably revised simply because they not look fitted to our adventure and knowing of a global in flux, an international that has turn into either more and more interconnected and liable to serious and protracted crises.

We reside within the interregnum among what's not and what's now not but. not one of the political activities that helped undermine the previous international are able to inherit it, and there's no new ideology, no constant imaginative and prescient, promising to offer form to new associations for the hot global. it's just like the Babylon spoke of through Borges, the rustic of randomness and uncertainty within which ‘no determination is ultimate; all department into others’. Out of the realm that had promised us modernity, what Jean Paul Sartre had summarized with elegant formulation ‘le choix que je suis’ (‘the selection that I am’), we inhabit that flattened, cellular and dematerialized house, the place as by no means sooner than the main of the heterogenesis of reasons is sovereign.

This is Babel.
