I stink, we all stink – in solidarity
“We are sharers, not owners. We are not prosperous. None of us is rich. None of us is powerful. If it is Anarres you want, if it is the future you seek, then I tell you that you must come to it with empty hands. You must come to it alone, and naked, as the child comes into the world, into his future, without any past, without any property, wholly dependent on other people for his life. You cannot take what you have not given, and you must give yourself. You cannot buy the Revolution. You cannot make the Revolution. You can only be the Revolution. It is in your spirit, or it is nowhere.”
The aim of this work is to create a collaborative project with solidarity and contribution by annihilating domination and hierarchy. Establishing a bond between the utopia of Le Guin, our journey of existence, and the social responsibilities for society.
We can save each other or ourselves…
I want solidarity – human solidarity.
I want free exchange between.
I am a beggarman, you see!
Which world would be the Utopian world – Although Anarres has a strong brotherhood, they are closed-minded and isolated. Urras is beautiful, but their laws and people are violent.

They had no relation to the things but that of possession.
A person chooses work according to interest, talent, and strength.
