In fact, from slavery in the time of Pericles, after 2400 years we are not yet exited and Western society has not yet succeeded in finding a balance. Western civilization drives to zero level the well-being, the culture and the social peace. When we were below the zero level, until 1700, our civilization carried us upwards to zero. Now that over a period of a century we had risen above zero, our civilization is providing clear negative signals and we’re transported back to zero again.
For workers, slavery is still somewhat around. Homo homini lupus indeed.
New ideas, new approaches are needed.
