« Times, they are a-changing » (« Oui, oui, tout va changer ! »)
My fellow contemporaries,
Do you even know where you come from? Are you only the result of the embryo of an embryo? Or, why not, from the model of a city, a world, an evolution?
So, why is it that we do not respect one another? Today, too few cities take the evolution of our lifestyle into consideration: we do not take the time to live in harmony with one another, starting with ourselves…
It’s time to wake up!
In order to succeed, we first need to learn to live side by side, instead of staying secluded inside our “home sweet home,” leaving “other people” lonely and impoverished because of our individualistic attitude.
We also need to imagine, to reorganize our cities, to adapt them so as to cross one another’s paths on a daily basis, and to make cities the healthiest possible to have a proper and sustainable life.
And most importantly, we need to understand our past, since as Seneca said “Our past must enlighten our future.” Sociologists, historians or geographers, such as E.Klinenberg, R.Sennett or M.Lussault are warning us; why aren’t we listening to them?
We are now holding the keys to our future: let’s make the most of it! Let’s not selfishly keep them to ourselves!
Let’s place all the odds in our favor!
