Time to Love

“Our Western and Christian civilization is a giant failure because it transformed life into a call to spend, to consume and accumulate and what it’s wasting are hours of life upon this planet. We don’t have a youth crisis, what we have is a crisis of civilization that includes them, the elderly, and the fate of human life on Earth. Youth feel it because they need more FREE TIME time, time that is not quantified, TIME TO LOVE, and that’s what they least have. I’m an old conservative man but this square, organized world as we believe it to be, doesn’t seem to me like it’s making people happy. Is this man’s destiny? Or should we see something that we can’t yet define in the rebellions and unwillingness to conform of the youth, and perhaps a sense of liberty and of a different civilization?” 

– President of Uruguay, Mujica
