Resentiment in post-modernity

14 Sep

We speak of fatigue, one of the symptoms of the human condition in postmodernity, AFrançaRevolucionáriawhit for us is not a movement, but in end of an era, with several aspects.
Another common of our time is resentment, accentuated by war and ideological political struggle, which gives areas of return almost as violent as it was at the beginning of the last century, but there would be new contours, yes, resentment.
