Besides the serious consequences produced on the economic, political and financial level, one of the most painful effects of the neo liberal thinking over the past 40 years, through the concept of competition, has undoubtedly been the removal of the sense of solidarity. Capitalism, in fact, has a chance to survive only through the elimination of the sentiment of solidarity and compassion. Therefore today, while the capitalistic system is in crisis and shows all its flaws, claiming victims in the process, we must act with more motivation and strength to awaken the sense of solidarity. Only by doing that we might, hopefully, start thinking and hoping in a possible future.
