"Liquid Times" Is a very short book by an author that explains in an authorized and scientific voice one of the phenomena that is happening in our current times: the fact that our lives are no solid thing any more. One is not any more intended to start a long term relationship with the world at the moment of birth and become an old and respectable member of society. Instead, one is meant to live a life of struggle and continuous movement from one job to another while independently trying to build some nest capital for the future. This leads to more individualism and less people willing to give back anything to society, instead, people want everything and they want it now; besides, they are afraid of losing what they have precariously obtained such as wealth or health; and those fears are well exploded by the government and the private industry (for example pharmaceutics and personal safety companies, the auto industry and so forth).
