This book is a lightweight reading for those who are interested in the overall question on how to change capitalism to make it a liveable, more just and equal space for all on this globe. Specifically, the core of the reasoning is based on the "free money to everyone", the basic income, and the fifteen-hour workweek topics – the topics for Bregman got to be known by the wider public since years – and the topics which represent the most grounded parts of the book. It is a journey through course material in economics, social and development studies with a storytelling narration. The examples based on the classics are presented vividly, taking space from in-depth analysis, or thoroughly constructed insights. This reading is an introduction with an overview, that can be easily read commuting on a train, or on a weekend.
No social status plays an actual role in the set, privilege is given, and no language or culture can step in the way, even the understanding family environment–and here one can think about the role of the father figure–can place a barrier to the characters to live out the timeless love. This island of no time and status sets the viewers to free themselves from prejudice, expectations, or anger and opens them for the emotional journey of a pure as a mountain spring unfolding love of two spirits. What happens on the screen, becomes inevitable, mystical and terrestrial in its reality, as sensual as a peach, making love with the entire world embracing women, summer nights, the wars, partisans, lake, or eggs. The scenery is vivid and eternal, drawing on the semantics of antiquity, the torso-like body images, and landscapes.
