Koncepcja socjalizmu Zygmunta Baumana w XXI wiek?
Zygmunt Bauman's Concept of Socialism in the 21st Century?
According to Zygmunt Bauman, the first and fundamental step towards a new social order should be instilling the public belief that the status quo be negated. He highlights the lack of new ideas, not even any sense of direction when it comes to a search for new paradigms. He makes the public realize that the contemporary socialist thought is to advance further towards new horizons, the ones that remove restrictions which were imposed to counterculture by socialist capitalist era. Bauman considers the issue of finding answers to fillowing questions to be the most important challenge of the twenty-first century: where to get new, better multipanetary principles of social life that could be widely accepted and respected? Where to find their creators and implementors, those who know how to intorduce the new creed to guide the humanity? Hypothesis that Bauman puts, is the claim that the future of socialism would be decided upon a cultural level. He puts an emphasis not so much a formal change of ownership, but on new culture and new philosophy with diffrent patterns of relationship.
