Over the last decades the image of our future was marked by a paradox situation. Whereas the idea of a future in politics is devalued by the banishment of new political project from the sphere of imagination, the future offers a fundament of a global economy. The invention of new policies disturbs the necessary reforms through their unpredictable potentials and at the same time risks and forecasts built economic instruments that generate profits that overrun the actual economy. Lately, the detachement of the fundaments of political imagination got more transparent, due to new self-assured forms of neo-liberalism. The present social political system changes its communicational strategy starting by small changes up to a completely new historical epoque which is in need of an accessory of legitimat references of Western values and views.
