Nobodies


For a while it looked like tomorrow would always be better than today. They promised it and we believed it. Now a lot of people everywhere do not even have a job. To lose your job or being unable to find a job deprives you of everything, including your identity. Deprived of everything and of your identity you are nobody. If you are nobody and you meet other nobodies in your life is love still possible? We should say: we are still alive but we are deprived of "being". 

Are politicians paying enough attention to this modern form of tragedy? Are they good enough and competent enough to solve the problem?  Do they want to solve it? 

And then because we are unable to understand all the details of the process that got us there we may have the impression that it all happened naturally, as if social systems emerged spontaneously from nature.
