To me, the law is more than words, more than set of rules or text that is smartly worded. To me, the law is common sense of coexistence. For generations, decades and centuries humans try to define through law the power of control. Now, we are too many, too connected and too, if you call it, out-of-control that soon the “law of now and today” will be the “law of not-enough” to redefine the new uprising society that is demanding changes. What this new society and generation will bring to the plate, I am not yet sure myself. I only know that too many smart minds are slowly boiling up to rise up to the challenge, deliver the changes and make a difference. Not through big words and big promises, but through silence battles and small compromises and necessary in your face realizations. There is a need for order, but the kind of order that gives common sense, not the power of control. Living to redefine society, living to define time!
