Empty promises

by Juho Antikainen

Everyday we hear words that promise us responsibility for better, more equal and more sustainable future. They tell us to stop worrying about the imminent ecological catastrophe and let the society that created those issues fix it. Those words are full of burning passion, deep care and sense of fellowship. They are presented for us as a solution to our problems. “We are working on it and you don’t have to worry” , words whisper to our ears constantly. We believe them but forget that they are just a façade: hollow and empty.
