The 5th issue of DUST, out in December 2013, focused on interpersonal relationships and the idea of “us”.
“There’s a difference between a generation who has learned to say “me” and a generation who knows to say “us.” This difference changes everything. The separation is clear: The first one has learned that everything revolves around them and that through competition they can, in solitude, reach their goal.
The second has realized that they are interconnected to one another, beyond what they can individually conceive and that through collaboration they can, together, fulfill their aspirations. The desire is similar. the results are opposed. One results in isolation, the other in cooperation. One pretends. one builds.
From spheres personal to national, moral to economic, these dynamics are inscribed in the individuals. Where does one stand when at the end of the day the world is not just a reflection of “me,” but more broadly, a reflection of “us”? Whether we live or we die,we’ll do it together.”
