A new magazine that began in an era dominated by electronic messages now clearly is both an act of intellectual courage and fervent hope for the future.
Especially in countries that are developing into modern industrial sense, such as Albania, a magazine like this could mark a turning point than the political theories still purely intuitive or dogmatically metaphors of the past.
Even the Albanian society, exactly like the rest, in this respect, the other technically advanced society, needs the sociological and political field.
In other words, the social and political relations can not be experienced in traditional magic, or just under the authority of the ‘eternal yesterday.
It is time to execute a concept and practice of social development that are based on systematically responsible participation of all citizens.
