Another world is unavoidable

THE CURRENT GENERATION HAS TO MAKE A DECISION

By Ignasi Rifé Photo Il·lustració Daniel Soms

“Every single journal should have a shrieking headline every day saying we are heading to total catastrophe. In a couple of generations organized human society may not survive. That has to be drilled into people’s heads constantly. The current generation has to make a decision (…), and it has to be done quickly, there’s not a lot of time”, said linguist, philosopher and activist Noam Chomsky on a recent interview. He also added: “There’s no way to exaggerate the challenge we are facing these days. Global warming is already the main cause for the extinction of many species at a rate not seen for 65 million years.

VERMOUTH, NOW AND ALWAYS

The classic vermouth is now the aperitif par of excellence. A tradition that has made a powerful come-back as the multi-dimentional phenomena of ‘the aperitif’... musical, poetical and literary — vermouth culture is reborn! Fancy a vermouth? With olives, ice, soda, in a cocktail… and, of course, along with some tapas, cockles, ‘patatas bravas’… In this realm, the scope of our imagination has no end!
