Os Despossuidos

Frase do Dia: Every kind of peaceful cooperation among men is primarily based on mutual trust and only secondarily on institutions such as courts of justice and police. Albert Einstein.

Dizem que a meia idade chega quando você para de criticar os mais velhos e começa a criticar os mais jovens. Mas será que o revisor da Amazon é tão jovem que nasceu depois da queda do Muro? Ele/a tem idéia que o planeta-mãe capitalista/comunista para onde Shevek viaja representa a realidade da guerra fria e se chama Urrás, e não a utopia (ambígua) anarquista de Anarraes de onde ele parte?

Shevek, a brilliant physicist, decides to take action. he will seek answers, question the unquestionable, and attempt to tear down the walls of hatred that have isolated his planet of anarchists from the rest of the civilized universe. To do this dangerous task will mean giving up his family and possibly his life. Shevek must make the unprecedented journey to the utopian mother planet, Anarres, to challenge the complex structures of life and living, and ignite the fires of change.
